Nigga we all know felines are the supreme beings and are way better than dogs
I can't draw. But I'd like a fursona of a grey-furred blue eyed mouse. I'll need to find a nice artist to ask for a commission.
The beauty of drawing is taking everything as a thing of its own.
When i fuck up, i continue, and soon the picture grows into something.
You will hit a stage when you can do curves and lines real good, and you will start to shade, etc.
Drawing skills evolve if you allow it.
Go on, what piece?
(Also im the anon with the shark posts, decided to stay up some more)
Blue Renamon is nice.
I have no idea where to begin with it all. What type of paper, pencil to draw with, etc. I'm hopeless.
paper? plain A4 or a little notepad. Any will do.
And grab a pencil that's just comfortable for you. I use the same pencil for doodling as i do for drawing engineering diagrams.
You know what pencil you are good with, and how it works, its the pencil to start with.
Whats the PC for? Gaming? Work?
Still in thread. What got me into furry was seeing some of the fantastic art. Always liked wolfs, cats etc. So seeing this art i got interested and soon noticed i was into the whole furry thing. It's different. Not the same thing on repeat imo.
I've never been to anything like it. I look at some art, talk to people here and my friend occasionaly about it.
Also let's get some paws up in here. Paws4Lyfe
VR stuff? You got good funding mate.
Some of the art out there is amazing, real good detail and all.
For today, I'm going to bed. Appreciate the conversation.
Have a good week everybody.
Gnight anon. Was nice talking to you. Maybe we'll talk again sometime. Sleep well.
Hey there Hotshot! Finally made that FA profile. Thinking of making a mouse fursona, even if I can't draw. 8bit was gonna keep an eye out for a commission spot for me of some artists.
I forgot about Miu! I'll watch and think about getting a comm if he's open sometime.
Dude it's going to be fucking wild.
We're all going to do a group shotgun. At least once
Yeah, I'm okay I guess. Tomorrow won't be good for me but that's the path I've chosen.
On top of that I've got an assload of school shit to deal with right now. Three projects, an essay, and a final next week. And the semester isn't even over yet.
I saw that you got an FA the other day and followed me. That'll be a lot of fun, saving sucks but it is so worth it once you get to the con. Take time with your fursona, don't rush into it. That's my only advice.
I always get worried every con that there's not going to be enough alcohol, but there's ALWAYS enough alcohol.
I think that is a bulge under the flap.
Aw yeah, that's the way to do it.
>Take time with your fursona, don't rush into it.
Not sure if you read the thread. I saved a mouse today, a little grey one. I wanted my fursona to be a sort of reminder of that event. I do love mice, and really all animals.
Fun's over, I'm back.
Oh, maybe it is. Still, I think it's cute. I'll see what e6 has to say.
Dude there is going to be way more than enough booze this year. I don't think I'll be bringing a keg but I'm definitely bringing a few fifths, some handles and maybe a rack or two of some decent beer.
Nope, I didn't hear that. Sounds like a good choice and reason.
Well that sucks. How are you otherwise?
I'll mull it over before committing to it.
I'm off to watch a movie before bed. See you folks later!
OK, more or less. Kinda depressing that my mood tends to depend on these threads. But anyway, you?
I know you're worried about tomorrow...
Well, I'm glad you're doing alright at least. I don't think it's bad that a bad thread makes you mad. It can ruin anyone's night.
Yeah... tomorrow won't be easy for me. I'm expecting to have a breakdown at some point. Just preparing for the inevitable.
Now that the semester is winding down there's just a ton of stuff for me to do. A few projects, some essays and finals coming up. I feel overwhelmed with it all but I'll manage it, I hope.
Ya, these threads are like my only source of socialization anymore.
If you want to vent tomorrow (or any time) I'm always available.
I'm sure you'll finish everything just fine. I always find the end of a term seems worse than it really is.
Yeah, I can sympathize. Thanks man, I might drop a line tomorrow. I know it'll be in the back of my head, it's already there. And I... feel shitty.
I really hope that I will. I haven't started on this design project yet and it's pretty involved, I have to build a house. An essay due on Wednesday which I'm behind schedule on, a portfolio for my marketing class on Thursday, a final next wednesday and then another project for that marketing class.
The only cut and dry test I have is for COM100 and that's not until finals week
Bleh, don't let me distract you then.
Naw dude, you guys are never a distraction for me.
Cool. If you disappear though I'll assume that's why.
Did you pick your badge yet?
I'm not sure why I have this saved
Thanks man, there's a chance that I'll just be MIA tomorrow. Too busy crying or drinking on top of A Mountain. Or both.
I haven't chosen my badge yet. I haven't seen them all, just the ones that were at the last update. Some of them I like but some are pretty meh for me.
I agree, nothing too spectacular. I chose this one though which looks neat, though the image they have is tiny so I could be wrong.
Old Funeral was such a good band.
It's crazy to think that Varg wasn't even an adult when he was with them and they disolved
I like that one, I should log in and see what else there is.
I remember seeing one that I actually did like but I don't remember which one it was specifically.
Still, I wish they were like the MFF badges
I already forgot what the MFF badge was like last year, and I'm too lazy to go find it.
The "stock" badges aren't as neat as personal ones you commission anyway. Lots of artists doing ones to match the graffiti theme which is neat.
I'm more excited to get another poker chip. I heard the higher level sponsorships are supposed to get a bunch of cool swag.
Oh yeah, that one was neat.
Yeah, the non commissioned badges definitely aren't as cool. Or nearly as meaningful.
Yeah, the poker chips will definitely be cool. I wonder what this years will be like.
I'm a little tempted to upgrade my sponsorship but I don't know if I really want to or not
Yeah, it was the one I liked the most out of the lot.
The swag sounds cool, but probably not cool enough for the price.
I'm also getting a bead badge like this for pickup there.
Yeah, that's always the hard part. And if I get a bunch of t-shirts and stuff, I have to ask if I would even wear them
Dude you are? That's going to be sweet
I never buy anything other than plain t-shirts since I try to wear a sweater as much as I can throughout the year.
No sense in getting graphic shirts or something else if you wear a hoodie or something most of the time.
I know I haven't been wearing my concert tees for that reason lately, and now that it's getting hot I don't want to be sweating in them constantly or worry about getting them dirty
Why am I still listening to Requiem in D minor?
Not looking forward to summer.
People keep inviting people to the other room
Yeah, summer won't be fun. But I know that you'll find your way.
Well I mean weather-wise, but definitely that too. Thanks.
That's an interesting mix.
Akai came out with a synth called Timbre Wolf.
I like it.
Ohhhh, and I just got why their drum machine is called Tom Cat.
Damn that's pretty clever.
Oh I thought you meant work and shit, my bad.
How are the summers at your place? I would imagine pretty humid and temperate
Nowhere near as hot as you guys get I'm sure, but ya, pretty humid.
I'm not a fan of it, but most people are.
41.8781° N, 87.6298° W
Yeah once summer comes around it'll be about 40 warmer than it was today.
If it weren't so hot here during summer I would say that it wouldn't be too bad. I never cared much for the humidity either
The couple times I was in the desert over there I thought the heat felt much more comfortable without all the moisture.
Still would prefer 70deg or less year round.
that's extremely specific.
You guys are humid and warm? I woulda thought with that lake that you'd have a more temperate climate.
Heat and humidity kill me. I envy you.
Oh, it definitely is, but I'm like super sensitive to any amount of heat and humidity.
Won't get under 70 much unless its the dead of winter
And call me a pussy but 70 here feels really fucking cold.
