    Shouldn't this thread now just be called "Creative Work"?

    Or for traditions sake, "Creative Work that Does and Doesn't Deserve a Thread"?

    I don't think you'll find anyone making a thread in GD about their specific artwork as that will be instantly buried. The thread is already used as a dumping ground for artwork that deserves a thread to begin wtih as well.
    Creative Work [that] Doesn't Deserve a Subforum.

    So now it's a megathread. Neat, but i always wondered why there are no such things as gigathreads or terathreads or something. How about becoming one of these?

    Okay guys, I really liked the grunge but this one fits the concept more.

    yeah the original was missing something and i think that effect suits the design a lot more than the other one

    what are you going to do with a drawing table. And I get that you're going to draw, but how does a drawing table serve better than any other table, unless you're a high on demand professional.

    I don't know about the ergonomics of working on a slope, but I imagine a proper tilting draftsman desk would be a healthier option in the long run given that you're not hunching over as much. To be honest even though I'm a hobbyist I'd kill for a decent tilting desk

    for someone who doesn't draw much a drafting table would be a waste of money. Not saying YOU don't draw much, but I don't think nightfury needs one yet. Tho of course not my decision, but my answer to "what drafting table should I get" is not to get one yet and see if you really want to pursue art.

    Don't know where to post this, so here is some poetry:

    You send your children out to die
    The surprise when the flag arrives
    You wonder what could've been done
    But you send another one

    Now that the forums have been reshufflled it feels a little odd posting work here, like now that the subforum has been cut down to a megathread nothing that I could possibly produce would be good enough to not be a waste of space That said, here something I drew recently that I'm pretty proud of.

    Looking back at this I was trying to experiment with lighting and it really shows. Constructive criticism super welcome.

    @Detlef, thing is that our desk broke time ago and there's not a proper space to sit and practice. Lately the thing that comes closer is the desk of my PC but it's a really small space so it's what I was thinking about. But well i'm not sure now of what you said if it's the right choice. Could get a desk but i don't know.

    if you have the money get one of those desks than can be adjusted to be a normal desk or at an angle like a drafting table. Shouldn't be too expensive

    (also I'm working on two different monitors, but I'm not sure which one of them is the most correct color wise. Does the picture seem warm or cool to you?)

    Well, maybe, but i doubt that. I have a pretty good vision (which is surprising considering how much time i spend staring at screens). The problem is not that i can't focus my eyes at all, it's more like these stripes make my glance slide away along them to the very edge of the picture.

    My issue is more that the contrast between the pink/red triangle and the darker background is way stronger than any other contrast in the picture, so when you're trying to focus on Neil Armskellington the eye keeps getting drawn outwards to the bright triangle

    Edited:

    Would creative writing also be accepted?
    You can, but from experience it won't get as much attention as images, which is a shame because there have been some great text pieces posted here.

    Ah, okay. I kinda see what you mean. They could be a little more faint, or maybe remove the stripes over the skeleton guy?

    Or something. I don't know.

    Okay guys, I really liked the grunge but this one fits the concept more.

    Final:

    this is nicely executed but tbh (and no offense) it looks a little too much like all the other Neon Retro 80s Nightforce Drive Techno looking things that have been very prominent lately (and a bit overdone..)

    So, I made myself a book cover for my story. I'd like some tips on how to improve it. The picture itself... I'm proud of it, but it could be better. It was taken with a cellphone (yeah, I know) but I would like some advice on it anyway, if possible.

    -snip far too big-

    Anyone remember how to do thumbnails?

    wait how does this work

    if you put cocoa powder in hot water you just get water with cocoa powder in it, right? you need sugar in addition to the cocoa and also milk instead of water if you want to make hot chocolate

    i don't get it
