    This map is incredibly fun, I'm surprised I haven't seen more like it since the addition of elytra in 1.9. Seriously, good job on this.

    I would like to point out that anyone who cites OS-native apps as a major reason to pick one OS over another is at best a beginning hobbyist, as the best software for almost any type of work is going to be third-party software. For example: if you actually want to get into video editing, and you're serious about it, even as a hobby, then you're sure not going to be using iMovie for very long. Pick an OS for its features, not its first-party applications. If you need to run a program that you can only run on OS X (or if you need to develop for iOS), and there are no viable alternatives for your situation, then get a Mac. Otherwise, don't.

    *is at the point where i can draw hair decently but draws crappy faces* bleh

    also u can tell by the coloring quality that this took me like ten minutes lmao





    It's because you've drawn different parts of the face in different perspectives. In terms of viewing the head from above or below, the eyes are seen from straight on, but the nose is seen from below, and the lips are seen from above (they are tilted too far up at the corners, giving the appearance that they are angled off the of rest of the face). In terms of how far the head is turned side-to-side, the nose is turned slightly farther than the eyes, the mouth is turned farther than the nose (the far corner isn't visible where the eyes and nose suggest it should be, giving the impression that the mouth is pinched in horizontally, accentuated by the fact that the bottom lib is too big), and the chin and far cheek are turned farther still. As a result of the bottom half of the face looking like a near-sideways angle and the top half looking like a 45-degree view, it looks like the far side of the face is caved in, or like the whole face is smushed to one side and narrower than it should be.

    There are other minor things, like the nose is a tad too low and the mouth is a tad too high, and the farthest-in point on the bridge of the nose is lower than the eye line, giving the impression that the area just above is swollen, but I think the inconsistent perspective is the main thing.

    Sorry for the wall of text, I need sleep and don't have the presence of mind to be more concise.

    if I did have a tablet, I don't think I would have the correct plug in cable


    If your computer doesn't even have a USB port, you've got other problems.

    I've borrowed a working tablet from a friend who wasn't using it, so I may start drawing things again. But in the mean time, here's some arts I did in Blender (huge images beware):

    posted a message on Is Americans wearing kimonos cultural appropriation?
    Quote from Scorpionius»

    Clothes are sometimes more than just clothes. In Roman times, a purple line on a tunica showed other people that you were an important person. In medieval times, if people could afford colorful clothes made of expensive fabrics, they could show off their wealth.

    And now that color dyes are dirt cheap, we do the same thing with expensive suits and dresses and jewelry. Oh, how the world hasn't changed.

    As for the thread, how about you ask any Japanese person whether they care at all if an American wears a kimono. The answer will probably be exactly what you expect.

    Well, as normal as you can get when you only have one nostril and your fingers and hair look like limp sausages.
