>>5914 btw I apologize but because a lot of the activity is eaten up by the drawpile I usually try and keep up with any Theme of the Week submissions there and compress them into individual images.

...aaaaand ROBOT! Thanks for your patience, every-buddy!
>>5928 I've been doing this since 2018 and there have been plenty of weeks if I didn't draw something, no one would have, so it's nothing new. The only reason I still make a theme each week is because it seems to help with drawpile >>5929
>>5934 All u care for is drawpile fags and it shows
>>5928 Because people are flaky, have inconsistent schedules, other responsibilities, and whole other slew of factors. I have been on loomis since 2014/15, and it's always been like that. This is common in every art community I have seen. Set times for drawpile seem to get people to draw consistently - something that many people drawing as a hobby lack. Drawpile gets more people to contribute in total and but that means fewer posting in the thread directly. I am a trad artfag, but can't help myself and shoot for the moon with a lot of my drawings. Half of the time my idea is too ambitious to finish within the amount of time I have to spare, and I don't let myself post it unless it's at least 80% complete. Couple that with trying to get used to a tablet, learning programming, music, and animation, and your free time just disappears.
>>5935 Could to explain that bit of logic, chief? Do you have any suggestions?
>>5934 >>5938 You're appreciated, King. Thanks for everything you've done and continue to do. >>5935 It just happens to be a hub where most of the community's activity and new blood has been directed lately-and it's still "our community" whether it's here, the drawpile canvas, artga.in or even anon.cafe imho despite the fact I don't link back to them anymore (they never did to me). This is where we're at after 8 years of trying to promote this board both on 8chan and off. >>5936 Definitely this as well.
>>5938 figure it out smart guy. /loomis/ has three boards.Two of them are dead and the other one no one cares for. It's just time to move on. Anons don't matter no more to the mods. U must be a digital artist namefag drawpiler to be apart of loomis. The reason you don't see draw fags no more they left to a place that doesn't exist
Must be hard to just draw and upload for u, buddy. Pick one it's clear u are an advocate for drawpile they are another community not anonymous one

>>5940 >>5942 I think I see what's going on here but I still fail to see why people drawing together in an impermanent livechat software and posting the results here is a problem. Most of those here have been here for many years and are not "anonymous" when posting here either, at least in the truest sense of the word. >Pick one Why do that when we don't have to? Art is being made and being posted on an art board, there is no cause for alarm. Do you draw, yourself or are you just here to stir up shit for no reason?
>>5943 People don't post shit. Don't know what ur idea of an art board is if no one posts art and shares it. I do draw. but I failed to see the point long ago to post in this place It's just falling apart. Hence why I said people who draw pissed off long ago. They know no one cares. No need to seek validation in general. Half the critiques are subpar and barely helpful. It's time someone stirred the up some shit this place deserves to burn and I got front row seats. I want to see it collapse it's about time
>>5945 >Half the critiques are subpar and barely helpful That suggests that the other half of the critiques are above par and exceptionally helpful, which you have to admit is a pretty good ratio for an anonymous art board.
>>5947 Lmao the only one who gives a good critique is the name fag loomis. Small hands that can produce magic

>>5945 cunt you made me draw
>>5948 BO should do something about that guy namefags gtfo
>>5949 Excellent submission, I got a good belly laugh from it. You've covered all the most recent themes in one go! Even shitposts deserve a critique: you exhibit good understanding of form with the tubular arm on the right but you sort of have a hiccup on the left, having made that arm into a thinner, ribbon-like shape by closing off that contour on the top/bringing it out to the opposite edge like that. You could better maintain its cylindrical volume by greatly shortening that inner-contour and having it only subtly deviate from the path of the line it emerges from. The hand on our right's fingers are roughly one line-width thinner than those on the opposite hand. Other than that, a perfect Rogoblichaun
(22.92 KB 788x623 robogobloclownochaun 2.png)

>>5951 Thanks, made some changes based on your critique and also cleaned up a few messy pixels.
>>5952 Perfect! The arms look great (though the one on the left is a bit thicker around come to think of it) and the fingers are much more congruent with one another. Now, as another step, consider trying to similarly tie the Robot's segmented glass eyes to an imagined ellipsoid form and giving those segments spatial uniformity like you'd done with the arms. Or not, sometimes less formal rigor is more with thngs like this. It's quite appealing as-is. Good work man.

I forgot to to draw the speech balloon before scanning, so I decided to pull out my old tablet and try to free hand it. writing was barely legible once I did it using a brush, so I had to use the text tool. How do you people get lines in digital to be so smooth? Is it all muscle memory and practice, stabilizer tools, or is there some trick to it? >>6123 Thank you, and thank you for your service.

Thought I'd do that thing where you cover multiple topics in your drawing.
>>6163 Well done, old bean >lines I too struggled quite a bit until I was properly pilled on tablet variations; please see this image I'd made a short time ago for more details >>6065 >>6164 Very cute, your lines are quite well done, with good use of line thickness and variation, and the color shows your versatility though they could be pushed a bit further. For example, I think the transition between the mass of earth and water could be given a bit more detail. Wet sand, chunky, smooth rocks etc.-all would make a good addition and a satisfying subject to study from reference.

>>6168 High tech cupid for this week >>6165 Thank you and thanks for your post is the tablet thread. I have an old, large intuos 4. So far I mostly used it for photo editing. I probably need more practice and confidence when making strokes. Along with making some adjustments as >>6167 mentions. >>6164 That's very nice, especially the coloring. Both color choices and technique.
>>6177 Very cool design, you maintained your volumes very well-even the wing tip peeking over the robot's trap is impressively uniform with its counterpart on the other side (mind that line tangent, though! You don't want that line to feed directly into that line that demarcates the pectoral chest plate and "deltoid" area). I feel like we should see more of that black "padded" area between the limbs on the leg on our right-just a few line widths worth on both ends would make the limbs appear more complimentary, as of right now the conspicuous omission or excessive subtlety of that padding causes a bit of an unintentional contrast, I think. Good work, and keep it up!
>>6178 Thank you for the feedback. I really need to work on planning things better. Focusing on that would address a good portion of flaws in my work. As it is now, I plan some things out but then stop thinking it will be good enough to just improvise the rest. It rarely is. Hence the tangents. >even the wing tip peeking over the robot's trap is impressively uniform with its counterpart on the other side After long time of half-assing, it is inevitable to learn how to cut a corner or two. Wings were the last thing I drew. Originally there was supposed to be only a jetpack until I changed my mind at the very end. >I feel like we should see more of that black "padded" area between the limbs on the leg on our right-just a few line widths worth on both ends would make the limbs appear more complimentary, as of right now the conspicuous omission or excessive subtlety of that padding causes a bit of an unintentional contrast, I think. I was on the fence between leaving it as it is or adding more black. I though that more black would make the knee look too "fat." In hindsight, adding just a smidgen more would work better.
