No he wasn't just a random person, he seemed like an actual artist. Guy only had one sample image of his work though, which I thought was odd. I liked his style based on the sample, but the guy clearly didn't have much reading comprehension or command over his own eyeballs, since he provided me only one sketch which looked nothing like what I asked for, despite very clear instructions and reference material. My adjustments were fairly minor too, (change expressions, alter the arm and pose a bit), but the guy wouldn't even bother to do that much and even seemed to be downright incapable of it. The fact that he decided to start coloring without my permission was a clear indicator that he didn't give a shit about what I was asking for and just wanted to sloppily rush my image to completion and then expect me to pay for it. After that experience, I don't know where else to go. All the other artists who do dakimakuras on Artists & Clients.com seem just as fishy as that guy. Barely any sample images of their work and what are probably just fake reviews shilling their abilities as an artist.
She looks adorable. Where is she from and what do you mean by "investment"? Will it be worth a lot of money one day?
She is a character made by Fluff Kevlar. She is an android.
She is a good investment because I'm so alone and I needed someone.
If you're interested, I got her from Fluff-Kevlar's Etsy page.
what a waste
Its a picture on a pillow not a person.You will become the wizard version of buffalo bill in no time.
Watch what you say.
She is special.
Go away tourist. Or are you gonna complain about waifu threads on /jp/ of all places?
go back to reddit, succubi arent people>>33815
arch bro here to back you up, remember
>never apologize for your waifur>always be willing to duel another man who insulted your waifur's honor >it doesnt matter if you call Ara a she because she's a waifur and not a succubus and succubi arent people
You're a real wizbro.
Yeah but it's a pillow.
Hell yeah broski
And don't listen to that faggot, he's literally been just saging every thread. He's a sperg crab.
My 7ft Miia pillow is what brought happiness into my life 3 years ago.
I've been truly, genuinely happy since then.
You've been truly and genuinely happy since then? Did it help you during a depression period and helped you getting your life in order? Or is all the happiness attributed to the pillow? I've been considering getting one but it does still seem kind of like a novelty to me. You're not the first wiz to say that their daki helped their mental health a lot (see the guy with the Ara daki)
A pillow with a drawing on it will not cure depression. But they are cute and comfortable to hug. So maybe you’ll sleep better and this feel a bit better, but depression is something you need to deal with deep in your soul, not with a pillow.
It gave me the motivation to start working harder and do things. I also tried LSD around the same time which seemed to have reversed my 7 year severe depression (I'm 24).
Since then I've been treating my life as a bit of a meme, buying things to flesh out my house and plushes of the other monster musume characters. I work in Ecology so I kind of decorate each characters room how I imagine their animal form would like it (though I have a small house, so it's only Miia, Papi and Suu while the other rooms are left more general).
I second this guy's statement. I will say that, depending on how insane you are, it probably can help to somewhat cope with lonliness and isolation to some extent.
I play a goofy waifuist stereotype when I post Ara. She has definitely helped me in some way, but she hasn't solved the root problem. She does however provide some form of escape from the real world. In this way she is special to me, and I reassure myself these things.
I'm not fully awake yet, so forgive me if this doesn't make much sense.
I wish you guys a good day.
So what Ive gathered is that I need to take some psychedelics and buy a waifur pillow and then I will stop feeling depressed and anxious… right?
It's worth a shot, whats the worse that could happen?
The "psychedelics method" from the outside seems to me to be a risky dice roll due to some of the possible adverse effects like bad trips and whatnot. People who have actually done psychedelics may or may not agree with me I don't know.
And buying a waifur pillow may or may not be a good investment for you. I'm sure it's not a universal fix for lonliness, but it helps me since obviously I don't have anyone else to hug at night. As long as you are truly alone and won't suffer any embarrassment from it, or you don't care, or whatever, it's worth a shot.
I hope all goes well with you and that you have a good day.
Bad trips almost always come from poor preparation, like normalfags taking LSD then going in a club with drunk people and having to 'act normal' around police. Or taking it with your parents at home. Stupid shit like that. if you're in a safe space, alone and well-prepared, then the risks are negligible. Only some people have enlightening life-changing experiences though
If you sleep with one of these are you revoking your wizard status?
I can't imagine why sleeping with a pillow would do that.
Maybe, but do it anyway
I can't see myself particularly giving a shit even if someone's home turned out to be some super advanced bdsm dungeon. You and most others tend to overvalue their importance in others eyes. People are so jaded and have their own shit to deal with so at best they'll go "ok" then forget about it and go on.
Besides that, like 98% of them will have done things waaay more gross and obscene than sleeping next to a big pillow with a print on it or whatever you're planning to do.
Definitely bad for your already poor reputation. If you believe that it will negatively affect the way others see you, and in turn have a drastic impact in how they treat you, then you should care not to let them know and hide it.
Yeah, I guess you guys are right. Fuck normies, I'll do whatever I want.
Shut up you degenerate faggot, why the fuck do you have a fucking furry animal daki?
Wow. I am at a loss for words. Archwiz is cheating on Ara with Carmelita. I cant believe you'd do this to your waifur. What will you do when she finds out? Anyway, what prompted you to buy another one? Do you sleep with both at night like that? It seems like it could either be cozy or smothering. Hope you're doing alright, dude.
Hey man. It's been up and down lately, but it's great to hear from you again.
Now that you say it like that, I'm a bit ashamed. I would never do anything to hurt her. :^(
I don't think she'd mind having some company while I'm away and I do my best to split the love evenly.
I really liked the Carmelita one and decided to go for it along with another inner. Turns out Comodo doesn't seem to have a solid standard of how much stuffing they should put into the pillows. Turns out Ara has been quite heavily stuffed this entire time, while Carmelita feels rather thin by comparison. I might try to equal out the stuffing later as there is a zipper to access the stuffing directly.
Sleeping with them both has been a bit squished, but quite nice! It gets really warm when I'm in between them. I am fully prepared for winter now.
Also, regrettably I am using Windows at the moment as this Intel NUC came with it. But I also got a Unicomp finally. Mine has a trackball on it. It has a low DPI, but it's quite nice to use.
Anyways, I hope all is well with you and I hope you have good days ahead. :^)
your keyboard is awesome
is that custom made?
It's great to hear from you too, dude. Awesome keyboard and NUC! I expect to see your wizard's grimiore (sudo pacman -S waifur) in a few months (=ↀωↀ=)
Carmelita sure is qt, but I think you still like Ara the best. Until an Ayn one is released. jk :^) I still feel sort of conflicted about getting a daki myself, but if I do ever get one, it will be with the best fabric and print quality available. Because why would you spend any less on your waifur? The only problem is which character to get and the even bigger problem of what if the store does not have the character daki that you want.
How is that little NUC device? It looks cool. I also was considering getting something similar sort of like a rasberry pi or EOMA68 type device. Maybe Ill just buy another thinkpad idk, I also had a cyberdeck project on the backburner for a while.
Thank you for the kind wishes, I hope you have the best of luck too, dude. By the way if you're interested there is a bit of a programming colab project we are doing in the programming thread in /hob/. Stop by if you're interested!
this thread has convinced me to get a daki once I move out
Yeah, Ara is still my love. But I still give Carmelita a lot of attention.
If you're sure you want a daki, just get an inner and a sleeve. You can always buy more sleeves.
Here are some shops:
Inner pillow I've heard is great (No slipping apparently) - https://dakimakuri.com/shop/item/inner
Inner pillow that I use (150cm x 50cm) (Great, only gripe is that the sleeve slips around sometimes) - https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07DHT7NPV/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o02_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
Some furry sleeves in these shops:https://lemoncre.me/collections/all-products?page=1https://www.furrydakimakura.com/collections/dakimakura
Etsy also has a lot of them. You can find Fluff on there too.
The NUC works very well for what it is. 16 GB of RAM and an i5. Graphics aren't that great, but I can still run some games on it.
Cyberdeck sounds like a cool concept. I've gotta look into that.
And sure, I'll check out that collab project. Thanks for telling me about it. I wish I knew where to start with programming though. Haven't fully immersed myself in it to be honest.
Have a good one!
Also on the subject of dakis, make sure you buy the right size sleeves for your pillow. They often come in 2 standard variations: 160cm x 50cm, and 150cm x 50cm.
>slept alone for years, never once considered these
Honestly curious what type of person needs these. They are cute, but they seem like theyd be uncomfortable to try to sleep around.
>>34495>Honestly curious what type of person needs these
Those who sleep on their side, especially so if they have wide shoulders or excess body fat. When the arm on the upside is rested, it compresses the chest and also puts strain on the shoulder joint. Equally so the hip joint and thighs are strained when a big fat wizard leg is allowed to hang freely. It's healthier to keep pressure off the genitals by forcing a gap between the legs too. It's why thigh pillows are sold wherever regular pillows are. Shove a pillow between your legs and you might notice an increase in comfort. Bodypillows also keeps fatties like me from rolling on to our chest in our sleep and suffocating to death several times each night. Even if you sleep on your back, the weight of a heavy pillow has the same effects as a weighted blanket. Also, when the sleep paralysis kicks in, it's nicer to see the waifu instead of the devil.
I find my daki uncomfortable to sleep with. I cuddle with her before I go to sleep and right when I wake up. I leave her on her side of the bed when I sleep. Its more of a security object then anything. Its pretty great to cuddle with if you're an anxious person. Very calming.
People will shit talk and judge you hard for having one though.
>>34504wouldnt it be funny if you posted a pic of your "desktop" that had a throwaway discord id or something hidden somewhere… ha ha ha…
Really though, you seem like a legit cool dude. By the way, what are your thoughts on fk's character Tala the smol wolf? I think she's pretty cute.
Have a great day.
Throwaway kingarthur#0054 thinks Tala is super cute!
