You know what I miss? I miss necroposting.
"Necroposting" was the act of replying to a months-old, or occasionally years-old, thread in forum software. Since the forums were typically displayed sorted by "most recent reply", this would pop it out of the third or fifth page of the forum to the top of the list, where all the regulars would see it again for the first time in a while.
Usually people would bitch about this old thread rising from the dead. But it wasn't uncommon for them to then re-visit the topic, discussing how things have changed in the time since the old post.
Really I just miss forums in general. They've been largely embraced, extended, and destroyed by commercial sites like Facebook and Reddit.
Huh. Telegram now has animated stickers - and they are fully vector. Sadly the way to generate these involves After Effects and holy crap that is not a program designed for fast, fluid use. Just looking at a few of the video tutorials that show up when I search "advanced character animation after effects" looks super fiddly and tedious. Yes, even more so than Flash.
Page Mix-15 of Parallax is done, I think. Gonna sit on it and look at it again in the morning before I decide for sure. Maybe needs a lighting finesse pass, this is some complex stuff that's gotta be blown-out but legible.
Mix-14 is pretty close, I just gotta slave over an elaborate background in the first panel, then cut and paste it and add PAINFULLY BRIGHT LIGHT.
I keep on looking at this piece in a nearby used furniture shop and wanting to turn it into my work desk. It’s wide enough. But I’d have to install a slide-out shelf for the keyboard and tablet to be close enough to where I’d end up standing and I don’t think I wanna spend that much in resources and time (mine or a specialist’s) on top of what they already want.
Maybe if it’s still there in a few weeks and they’ve dropped the price and I haven’t found anything simpler. Like there’s a cabinet at the same place that I could make work as-is or with a tiny bit of modification that’s only $60.
Shit's definitely getting more sustainable down here. Rent is less than 2/3 of what it was in Seattle, and Nick's started paying half of that. My Patreon earnings for another low-production month came to almost half of what was left. And if I get off my ass I should be bringing *that* up soon.
(as always, thanks to the folks who support me being an artist drawing aggressively non-commercial comics!)
Sp apparently Gab is using the domain exited.eu. Guess what domain I just silenced and blocked all media from?
Hey since Twitter is full of people freaking over their current rules maybe banning all furry porn: have an invite to my Mastodon server, dragon.style.
https://dragon.style/invite/Guo3wbfY - good for five people.
Check out the rules: https://dragon.style/about/more
It is not up to date, but it works. I generally try to block freezpeach/pepe/troll instances as soon as I see a report of them. Post all the furry porn you want, just put it behind a CW (content warning) so nobody has it leap out of the timeline at them at work.
oh and if I start getting a lot of reports of you being a jerk you *will* get a talking to, and possibly an account revocation.
scammy-looking links that may well actually be from who they purport to be from
these links totally do not look scammy
and yet the headers look legit to me, it ultimately comes from amazonses.com which is "Amazon Simple Email Service", "a cloud-based email sending service designed to help digital marketers and application developers send marketing, notification, and transactional emails", which sounds like a thing they'd spin out as a product from what they use
either way I'm sure not clicking on it
Hollow Night sure is a pretty metroidvania that I don’t think brings a single thing to the genre besides “it’s really really pretty”. I downloaded it and played what feels like most of it (got to the castle and back out of it) tonight and I’m really not sure I feel a need to finish it.
Maybe I’ve just done all the metroidvanianing I need to in my life.
Dracula Pride flag (inspired by https://raggedfeathers.com/@signalstation/102374054911277476)
The central colors represent the blood of the (hopefully) willing victim and the two fangs of the healthy Dracula, while the black represents The Night.
Also the trailing end is adorned with tattered lace to represent the decaying finery of a proper Dracula.
