@  xcrash1998 : (30 November 2019 - 11:07 PM) New fictional holiday "Index Day"
@  Fire Blazer : (28 November 2019 - 08:52 PM) yeah just guest bots and stuff I think :( we really were active once upon a time though...
@  kirant : (26 November 2019 - 03:48 PM) No invasion. I imagine a lot of guest bots visiting for indexing purposes.
@  xcrash1998 : (26 November 2019 - 02:15 PM) How is most people online at 959 for the 8th of October of this year? Is that right? Did I miss something or was there somekind of spambot invasion?
@  xcrash1998 : (26 November 2019 - 02:06 PM) I know what you mean, it gets awkard to post something unrelated to the current conversation, and even if somebody picks up on it, it would just become a huge mess in the c hatbox if a multitude of groups talk about different topics.
@  Fire Blazer : (10 November 2019 - 11:45 PM) especially better imo if you want to update on a topic but like only occasionally (e.g. a project you're working on or a let's play of a game)
@  Fire Blazer : (10 November 2019 - 11:44 PM) it's hard for me to explain precisely why but forums just like work better for meaningful discussion over a longer period of time ig
@  Fire Blazer : (10 November 2019 - 11:44 PM) but that's def just not hte same ig, idk
@  Fire Blazer : (10 November 2019 - 11:44 PM) yeah, you can also kind of respond at your own pace on forums. Discord conversations are often like... it's awkward to respond to something that happened a while ago, especially if the server is active, but even just in general. since you sort of need to keep track of multiple conversations at once at times, and it's not like it has a good reply/quote system ala forums, closest thing really is to copy/paste or screenshot the text you're responding to and then type a response below
@  Elwood : (09 November 2019 - 11:29 AM) Adding on to what's been said, I just enjoy the order and structure of the forums. You can look through the threads and know exactly what people are talking about. Conversation get lost and buried on discord which is why I'm not a big fan of it.
@  kirant : (06 November 2019 - 05:31 AM) I enjoy that part of forums too. They become niche communities where you can have very specialized conversations as opposed to the cluttered mess in Discord.
@  Ezra : (31 October 2019 - 01:17 AM) Yeah, part of me wishes I could go back to the times forums were more prevalent. I really enjoyed how even several different forums based off the same franchise could feel so different. It's not like what we now is bad though, I just feel nostalgic for old times.
@  Fire Blazer : (30 October 2019 - 06:39 AM) also forums in general are just not as prevalent, there are so many other ways to interact these days, like Twitter, FB, Tumblr, etc., where you can just throw your thoughts into the void. I think that's the real issue and that the only people rly interested in forums these days are either super dedicated to whatever they're about, have a specific reason/need to (e.g. support forums), or grew up with them and are thus attached to the idea enough to continue to try and use them (this was kinda me for a while lol but things happen, I couldn't keep it up forever)
@  Fire Blazer : (30 October 2019 - 06:36 AM) I've posted on SF for various reasons ofc but in terms of like making friends and stuff it's p. much just been smaller groups/forums, yeah. mainly FES
@  Elwood : (27 October 2019 - 10:08 PM) Only reason I'm even on Serenes was because I had hacking questions. @Ezra yeah I figured it must be an age thing. I've been called an old man by many a child because I use Facebook.
@  kirant : (26 October 2019 - 09:39 PM) It's strange. I don't think I've ever posted on Serenes...period. I've always been a fan of smaller forums.
@  Ezra : (26 October 2019 - 05:49 AM) I think it's because a lot of newer FE players didn't frequent forums growing up. And those that do probably end up on Serenes.
@  Elwood : (25 October 2019 - 07:30 AM) I would love to revitalize this place I'm just not sure how that would be done. I mean with how main stream FE seems to have become I'm honestly surprised we don't have more members.
@  Fire Blazer : (21 October 2019 - 08:04 PM) tfw u not coming here results in not seeing a PM from last month T_T ok gonna try and check at least every couple weeks now even if there's nothing here, lol...
@  Fire Blazer : (21 October 2019 - 07:54 PM) I come here almost never because I've fallen out of habit and basically just accepted the forums are dead :( it's neat you come here every day tho

I am now striving to improve as much as I can with my animu designs, and my art skills in general, and I'm getting more and more disillusioned with my old work. Most of it was me getting lucky and putting the right body parts in the right places without any real concept of anatomy or dimensions or the like. Hell, all I did was make lines and have them connect in a somewhat conceivable manner. That given, I'm now starting this new thread to run around with a few designs and maybe display a few other works here and there, though that's not to say that I'm nearly satisfied with myself at this point. I've a long way to go, but it's a journey of a thousand miles, no?

Really, I'm going to try to make a turn around with my style in general. Hence the title. That, and I thought it sounded catchy wink.gif


Go #1:

So this piece of shit turned out a lot worse than I had first thought it would. But meh, whatever. I didn't bother finishing the shading because I was too disappointed with the result to want to work on it further. But I'll leave it here regardless. The fact that the pose went so awfully wrong pisses me off to new degrees, but what's done is done.

Here's the result of some practice gone okayish. Incomplete, but somewhat presentable.

Well, getting there. Maybe. (Click Here To Hide/Show Text)

I'll post some more stuff pretty soon. Working hard or hardly working? Striving for the former now, really.

I'm completely not sure what the second one's supposed to be, but judging by the first one, even though you've messed it up apparently, you've done yourself quite a bit of improving.

Oh wow the Maribelle drawing looks amazing ohmy.gif didn't look at the rest in that pic very much XP

the 2nd pic with Anrai? looks cool, my only complaint besides Shadow's lolis that her left foot looks a little too squarish, otherwise great job.

Why not.

Also, no offense to you Blazer but... (Click Here To Hide/Show Text)
If you are lol'ing at those shadows then I'm going to assume you really have no sense of dimension whatsoever, and in the future I'm probably not going to be taking a single one of your opinions on art very seriously.

I was referencing like hell, and I trust my references done by professional artists very much.

For one, that Maribelle sketch was just there for lols and boredom. I don't see it as any good whatsoever.


But otherwise, thanks for the comment. smile.gif
