Haven't written this sort of thing in a while, but then I thought about experimenting with ai designed for it.

It was ok, considering how talentless I was at bringing these sort of things into fruition since I first discovered them anyhow. XP

And here's another Doraemon one, a Kuragehime one and a Bakuman one.

Honestly I'm just dumping these here cause this may have been a momentary thing I did that was but the friction that came forth as I finished another project that left me with such a hangover (I can feel it fading away already), and these are just the ones that weren't too random of ideas. To make it simple it was fun while it lasted, but work is like alcohol if being a workaholic is a thing =_=.

I've created a language years ago. I picked up words from english, german, latin and indo-european root words.
Here's some phrases:

" Bheheud ser, ek heer "
(tomorrow night, I'd be there)

" Nw Þonder "
(there's is a storm)

" Nw Þonder, ek ser bheud, sekzuheud "
(there's a storm today, I'll see you tomorrow)

" Ði mann sek ði deer "
(men and animals are different)

" Deer sek mann but Þey anwdeer und Þey mann ajwmann "
(animals aren't human but are living beings)

now here some words I've created so far:

I dunno, it just is silly. I'm not saying it's not worthy of being proud of and there are similar things happening between natural languages, but surely you can see my point?

No, I have not, but I have some experience with constructed languages: esperanto, toki-pona, klingon.

My hobby is casinos, where I can try my luck and skills. I am fond of gambling, especially games like poker, roulette and slots. They always offer new challenges and opportunities to win. One of my favorite places to play is https://linebetar.com/download/, where I can not only have fun but also get a chance to earn extra money. I believe that you can win in casinos by following the right strategy and controlling your emotions.

Old "show your desktop" threads on vidya, modding, and 3DCG forums were a goldmine until recently. With sites like Imageshack, Photobucket and such purging old images, the windows in to people's history on computers are being shut.

You could make much of it from aluminium beams, the kind that accepts T-nuts. The plank on which the lappytop rests can just be a metal mesh, allowing for better thermals and cable management.

to make it lighter i will probably just drill holes along the middle of all the studs to reduce the weight. this laptop conveniently has everything for cooling on the back/top, nothing on the sides or below even has vents, so it's not affected at all. also have cablestraps which work pretty good for holding the power cord. the power cord coming from the brick is barely long enough but it works

do any wizards like tea? specifically loose leaf teas? if so, any specific blends or varieties you like/recommend?


i recently got into gongfu brewing and it's pretty much the only thing i've been thinking about these days. i found this hole in the wall tea shop in the chinatown in my city and purchased a shou pu'erh tea cake that i've been picking away at.

As a wizcoded truvol crabpilled sigmacel, I decree that both coffee and tea, with any capacity of sweetness or dairy, is a worthy drink for a wizard who is thirsty.

Unless you use soy-based lighteners. Those turn your orbs in to little gemstones that resonate at a feminine frequency.

I've heard of that combination. I think it's pretty alright. Although, my chamomile is probably a year old or even older by now.

In other news, I've decided to try herbals from Celestial Seasonings. Their Raspberry Zinger and Country Peach Passion is pretty good. Their blueberry is very strong for one mug, and is okay if it's diluted a bit in a tea pot. It also smells like blueberry pancakes, for some reason. Their Orange and Spice is pretty smooth and has a delicate flavor. It's probably one of their best next to the Raspberry Zinger.

On actual tea, I still drink black teas like Earl Grey and Lady Grey if I find it. I like Lady Grey a lot more, but Earl Grey's still a great choice. I want to get into Moroccan mint tea, but I'll need fresh mint, which means growing some, since stores around me don't sell it. That's the only thing preventing me from making Moroccan mint tea, pretty much.

Yes, its possible to developed caffeine addiction, I had a huge caffeine addiction when I was young, I would get headaches if I didnt drink coffe and I had trouble to sleep. Its not that hard to lose the addiction, you just need to reduce the quantity of coffe that you drink. Also, avoid to drink coffe at night

I got for christmass a big 1.5l thermos and more often than not I start my day with making shitload of tea that I'll drink by evening. Highly recommend.

Lately I've also been experimenting with masala chai and I had a great time. I'm not a fan of just tea with milk, but this combo is delicious, definitely try it out: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8fQAxZahx_U

Pipe tobacco is a hobby, right? There's the element of collecting pipes and trying various blends, which resembles wine tasting in how elaborately some people talk about them. Any wiz pipe smokers here? Any favourite blends you'd recommend? Show me your wizpipe(s) (no homo).

Here's my pipe and some tobacco I'm currently smoking. The one in the tin is Old Gowrie

Your point implies that the anguish of not having a partner is diminished by your hobby. You arbitrarily set up romantic partnership as a form of ultimate wellbeing, that I can only conclude was derived from your own yearnings, to the point of you producing an "unequivocal" answer. It's unequivocal only in relation to your own mental state at best.

I somewhat agree and I don't recommend that hobby to anyone. That being said…
>Imagine wanting to ruin the precious lining of the lungs
You don't inhale while pipe smoking; the most you gonna ruin is the lining of your mouth.
>Say not to drug wizards.
I don't smoke my pipe at all during winter because going outside to do so sucks then. And even now, when weather is perfect for this activity, I don't smoke more often than once or twice a week. Does it sound like something a drug addict would say?

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.

Beauty this, good qualities that. I find beauty in the aesthetics of videogame succubi curves. I use art as a creative outlet for energy produced by semen retention. I don't really care about 2B, never even played her game, but I like her character design.
>made ugly worse
How if all I did was literally drawing her using several screenshots from the game as a reference? I am trying to improve rendering technique, not to create a Mona Lisa.

Hypofrontal argumentative capacity.
>but I like her character design.
Her design is one of endearment and the common qualities of healthy young succubus (2d) beauty. You took those qualities and flipped them on their head

Where 2B is round, you made angular
Where 2B is smooth, you made bumpy
Where 2B is fair, you added moles
Where 2B's expression was of robotic melancholy, you added smug seduction

You don't like her design, you like her outfit for its revealing qualities and you wanted to see some droopy-eyed, masculine single mother wearing it so that's what you drew. It doesn't matter how good your shading is, or your composition, or the cleanness of your lines; if you make ugly design choices, your work will come out ugly.

If you're going to draw ugly succubi, then create your own. Don't take someone who is fair and pretty and sexy and distort her to your own liking as those people who niggerize anime succubi do. It's dishonorable - very rude to anyone who connects with that character.
