All you need to begin drawing is a pencil and some paper

Feel free to post any drawings of yours in this thread. Illustration, doodle, traditional, digital - anything goes. Discussion on skillbuilding techniques and fair critique of other wizards' work is welcome.

wanted to give you something different as I mainly see you draw from the frontal angle or the side one.

sorry for late reply, im glad you liked my drawings, naw i havent drawn those games cause i never played em, i have a lot of sentimental value for timesplitters and i love the character designs

>isnt the only way to get better at drawing to draw more?

youre right but i want to get better at anatomy specifically so i think that takes dedicated study and understanding which just doodling doesnt exactly provide

Twas originally gonna post this in lolnada, but couldn't really find a proper spot. Pretty much an old High School assignment. (WARNING: CRINGE).

Originalmente iba a publicar esto en lolnada, pero no mamen, no pude encontrar un lugar adecuado. Más o menos una vieja tarea de la Prepa. (ADVERTENCIA: CRINGE).


Belive or not, I also draw like this.

That’s what happens when you genocide an entire continent’s worth of people.


no, it's what happens when you don't finish the genocide


Most of them are in the most barren depressing wastelands you could possibly imagine. They got driven off their ancestral homes in the east to shit land that wasn't taken and then they've been given benefits so they can live in shitty trailers. Any sacred site they have is likely something created since they were driven off their original land. They didn't even have horses before Europeans brought them to the continent so the image of Indians riding on horses people have is actually a culture that was developed after we started fucking with them and drove them off the good land.


they had horses all throughout the americas before the european settlers arrived. at least you can find cave paintings and little statuettes and woven twig things of horses, dudes on the horses, etc.


Better to die with honor from English Puritans than to be Mestizoized into the bottom of a racial pyramid by decadent debauched papist Conquistadors.

Started getting into this very recently after watching some videos about it on YouTube. I then bought some Sibley and Roger Tory field guides and a Nikon M5 Monarch Binos. Was wondering if there is anyone else who enjoys doing this as well. Seems like a friendly hobby for everyone and its gets you outside and "touching grass".

Yeah, you should definitely get a field guide for wherever you live and just leaf through it to familiarise yourself with what birds you have around you. Also look up what sort of habitats you have where you live, that way you know if you should be looking for shorebirds and herons if you live near water, or passerines if you live near forests, etc.
If you aren't familiar with phylogenetic trees and how living beings are sorted into species, genus, family, order, kingdom, phylum, etc. you should look it up first to avoid confusion.
This site has every bird species organised phylogenetically: https://birdsoftheworld.org/bow/species
I suggest looking to see what birds you find interesting or familiar and investigating that family— seeing its different members, what they look like, what they eat, where they are distributed. If you're interested, you will develop a good knowledge base of bird forms in your area (or wherever interests you). Eventually you will get a feel for it and be able to identify birds quickly.


thanks for the advice ill get a local field guide


I like staring at animals in general, but not too much, because i don't want to be rude.


I stare until they submit or confront me.


just get a sibley or peterson field guide that is located wherever you are.

Anyone here lucid dream as a hobby or common practice? What methods and techniques are a lie to sell courses and which really work?
Im so utterly tired of material existence and limitations I want to maxx out my lucid dreaming as much as possible without drugs.
So far my plans for this are:

sleep LESS not more( REM rebound phenomenon)
master the Gateway Experience tapes
master Dymaxion polyphasic schedule
master falling asleep(and maintaining sleep)in "odd" positions: standing up ,squatting,on my shins like a baby, full louts. monks and primitive tribes do it…it should be possible.

I had several lucid dream experiences and at least two of them were induced by myself. What seemed to have an effect were those awareness practices youre supposed to do through the day like the frequent reality-checks because at least one time those have successfully triggered a lucid dream for me.

Most of them were randomly caused by subtle noises or light changes and such things which can raise your consciousness without waking you up. Its also interesting how some of the lucid experiences were suddenly interrupted by nightmarish shifts in the dream of which I had no control over.


i wanna do this too. anything i should prepare beforehand? i've been seriously meditating for 1 year and it's brutally changing me. i feel a sleep fast could be an interesting experience in my journey to enlightenment.

i'm looking forward to hearing from you brother.


>journey to enlightenment

You won't find it if you seek it, that is the thing with the spiritual stuff, you can't be on the way, you can only be, and that is the way.


One who believes he has found enlightenment can reflect on the moments leading up to that point and consider it to be his journey. I think this is what "journey to enlightenment" means. Not to describe a path to follow, but one followed.


ahh i used to pracitce this, i had some cool dreams, my trick was induce the sleep paralysis and then some wacky shit begin to happen, and then, if i was lucky, i got a lucid dream.
Anyway my best dreaming experiences were with normal dreams, but i can't deny that thoose lucid dreams were funny as hell lol


Just watched a Shawn Keller interview last night, and I have to say, he's quite possibly one of the most wizardly animators alive today.
>60+ year old virgin
>A man that has no need for *o*en, only making cartoons
>He can pump out a completed professional 11 minute cartoon in under a month, something an entire studio takes 10 months to make
>Dude's been around the oldschool comic fetish/furfag communities before even usenet existed, got fucked over by furries he was kind enough to help out, but still forgives them, like a wizardly furry Jesus
The interview's still up on YouTube, and they're going to be doing another one today at 3:25pm EST. It'll be streamed here cytu(dot)be(slash)r(slash)mlp-con2

God what I would give for some official Maid Marian porn.


This guy was a professional Disney animator but i'm wondering where you're getting this 60+ year old virgin stuff from? yes i know this post was made a year ago.


It's baseless projection.

I have this hobby, I like to save pics I see, I have 1000~ pics for now but Its what I really like, then I go through my folder looking at my picturs I saved from internet


It's my hobby too. I tried to sort them into folders (e.g. Architecture, Memes, Cars, etc.), but now I think it's better to keep them all in one place, because sometimes it's hard to decide on the folder for saving, if there are multiple objects in the pic (e.g. a street photo has both cars and architecture in it).


I do this too, I made folders but didn't use them at the end and keep all my pics in one folder, my firend


I do the same with porn

Anyone here interested in researching serial killers? I find some of their backstories and psychiatric evaluations really interesting…

All homos have some unresolved mental condition


Does fantasizing about homosexual rape (recieving end) as a straight wiz count as being a homo?


depends;is the rapist a muscular, hairy man or an androginous,boyish femboy?


Any… This is for my wizfriend btw.

he is a gang leader(narco/los zetas) and not a serial killer, but he personally executed 320 hand-tied inmigrants so I guess he counts. (mexicans bitch about USA border but they themselves kill central american inmigrants like its nothing)

I've found myself perusing books written by governments. It's really weird, because it feels like some bureaucrat spent an immense amount of time studying, compiling, and writing up a book that feels so oddly disconnected to them. Some of them are well known:
The 9/11 Commission Report
The Army Survival Field Manual
Some are stuff you'd never hear about normally, but it makes sense that some people would know about them:
Airplane flying handbook
But what I really find interesting are the ones that are really obscure and clearly had loads of work put into them, or so ridiculously specialized that you wonder who wanted it, or you'd figure there's already a textbook about it why would the government want their own? E.g.:
A book about Mulberries
A report about U.S. shipping
Finite element analysis for bridges

https://catalog.gpo.gov/ is a good place for a lot of these.


>It's really weird, because it feels like some bureaucrat spent an immense amount of time studying, compiling, and writing up a book that feels so oddly disconnected to them.
This characterization reminds me very strongly of Chinese imperial records, written in Classical Chinese. Imperial bodies used to record a great deal, though of course the vast majority of it is buried in chinese academic sites. There are a few very famous instances, such as the zuozhuan (左傳) which would be roughly equivalent to the roman annals from the regal period.
A personal favorite of mine is the story of the efforts of astronomical prediction in ancient china, described in the book "Heavenly Numbers: Astronomy and Authority in Early Imperial China" by Christopher Cullen. Of course, I wouldhave never heard about any of it otherwise.

who's in making a video game together? I was thinking about a visualnovel, with japanese style design. I was thinking about something horror-y like higurashi or corpse for example.
making a japanese style would be great, and I think a lot of people would like to.
I think theres a lot of otakus/weeaboos who would love to make a project and I think wizardchan can be a good platform with solid people.
what do you think?

I think there's programs available to make mega man fangames and mega man romhacks which should make this a lot simpler.


mega man is for crabs


Just play this. The gameplay is fun, the maps are good, and the weapons/setting is all pretty faithful to the series


i remember before i could program, i had no problem making assets and art and stuff. but that is boring as hell now. the most interest part of a game is the programming, solving problems with trying to create code to define the game. but once those problems are gone or the problem isn't interesting… no desire to continue

im sure this in some form can be generalized for other parts of game dev, besides programming. and so i feel the only way for certain people (who will never make a game) to actually make a game, is to do some sort of game jam and rush something out, before you become bored and disinterested with it


so…are we starting?
