The only hobby I had for a long time was gaming. Recently I quit cold turkey and I need something else to fill the time. I've been reading instead and that's pretty fun but it isn't as comfy as gaming. I need to find something that makes me want to wake up in the morning but everything I try I get bored of. Sometimes it's a few months, sometimes a few years, sometimes a week, but I get bored. No hobbies really sound interesting to me, and even if they do there's always something shitty about them. Should I just go back to gaming?

If I start to hate a hobby, should I get another one? I used to love playing piano but now I don't. I can't tell if it's because I'm depressed or because the hobby has just become boring to me


Personally I never had a hobby or interest that stuck with me for a very long time, except maybe reading but I don’t read that many books anymore. However, I started learning blender and 3D modeling because I wanted to make some weird visuals and custom avatars. It had a steep learning curve but I literally use it every day now. When I’m bored I’ll just open up a blank project and have at it. No idea why it got my attention so much but it makes me happy at least.


hobbies are for normalfags


fuck off crab

I will give this a shot later, usually I'm too retarded to get stuff like this running.

Follow this tutorial closely and it should all be ok. I had problems a couple of things, but I think that's because I dick about with my computer settings too much. If you follow this one, make sure to download 3.10.6 python, because it doesn't work on newer or older versions, surprisingly. And when installing python, make sure to check the box for adding a path variable. If you get stuck on a step make a post here and I or someone else might be able to help get it started. It isn't brilliant with human figures and faces, but for actual artwork I can see why all the web artists are frightened.

I can't stop making loosely inspired Gerhard Richter seascapes at the moment.It even gets the canvas effect right.

do not ever use software that
-is not a self-contained binary
-does not have a simple one click installer
-requires techbro youtuber faggots to explain how to install and use the thing

get a gui for stable diffusion. i personally use 'NMKD' because it takes care of installing stable diffusion and getting all the bullshit it needs, it does it all for you. but any gui or frontend for sd is better than nothing

when you eventually learn enough about how to run and generate images, next you will want to experiment with different models. go to https://civitai.com/ to find stuff

unrelated but here is an inpainting demonstration using nmkd. you select the area you want to replace, see what generates. when it doesn't look right you crank down the image influence and let it go wild and basically RNG something aesthetic. when you get something good, you can raise the influence just enough so the image remains visually constant but there is enough variation to allow you to see any possible improvements. when you find something good, you use that as your new starting image and adjust the mask to fix any areas that aren't good. you do this repeatedly until the whole is something you are ok with. this is my process at least


Never use software that
-isn't FLOSS
-you don[t hage to compile for yourself
-requiresmyou to type ~/configure make make install
-has less than 15 dependencies
-doesn't require specific versions of some dependencies
-you can install without having to modify the makefile
-takes less than a day to compile with 4 processors
-doesn't throw warnings throughout compilation
-doesn't require rust
-doesn't require dbus
-doesn't require systemd
-comes with proper documentation


FLOSS is cool but i like the unlicense better, all the rest of that is actual aids hell

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.

slowly getting there


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.

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.

potato stuffed flatbread, holy fuck rolling out the breads was way too much work. I'll probably just eat the filling instead next time. Also my pan was too small

Pork's feet. It's delicious, there is a high proportion of bone, but its a great thickener, and I love sucking the marrow.

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)
