Thanks. I'm actually aspire to eventually become a manga artist, but having good writing skills helps. That's part of the reason I'm pushing myself to write different genres so I can get even better at writing.

Hi and welcome. That's good your into writing and aspire to be a writer. I'm also into writing and mostly write fantasy though lately I'm trying to branch into different genres which has been kind of hard for me. I'm more into manga and illustration while my friend is more into anime and animation. Anyway it's nice to meet you.

break Room / Re: Mobile gameing
« on: June 04, 2020, 06:40:54 PM »
I play some mobile games. My current favorites are kingdom hearts union x cross and pokemon masters. I use to play a lot of pokemon go but haven't played that since the virus and instead have been spending more time trying to beat all my pokemon games.

Well, uh, all political rantings aside. I am finding myself going back down the hole of home improvement projects. Well, apartment improvement projects, which means I'm pretty limited, but hey, life finds a way.

I'm piecing together plans for a balcony/window based solar farm. I don't get great amounts of direct sunlight with my northern exposure apartment (only on summer mornings and evenings really), but I'm curious if I get enough indirect light to still run a few things. I want to at least stick my phone charger on it and a few grow bulbs. From my research I can definitely pull off some amount of solar power with a $200 budget. There's a laundry list of components you need to convert "wild" power straight from the panel to something usable, but in theory once I have those pieces in place if I wanted to upgrade my panels. Right now I'm looking at a device that you plug into the wall with a built in outlet that lets you monitor how much power whatever is plugged into it uses. I also found some cheap ~$25 panels that are about the size of a sheet of paper, which would be pretty mobile if they can produce enough power for small devices.

I swear, one of these days I will have a house that I can go completely off grid with. Not depending on the utility company is a will that lives inside me, probably powered by generations of farming ancestry that just wants to stick it to the man, man!

I can understand wanting to live off grid. I too have farming ancestry. My great grandparents were farmers.

I've been completely bored of everything in my life. I've struggling with my demons. I'm in a brethren point even before quarantine I was already socially isolated. Right now I've been just focusing on exercise, reading, writing and trying to be a manga artist too bored to do anything else. I just wish I can go outside and make friends. I'm actually 24 and been single this whole time that what bothers me lol
I didn't start dating until I was your age mostly because sex ed scared me when I was a teenager to the point that as a teenager I'd push the boys away and wanted nothing to do with them. Also seeing my cousins all have kids as teenagers I knew from an early age I didn't want to have kids as a teenager. Now here I am almost 30 and still no kids. However, I would like to at least have one kid. I'm just waiting for the right time in which I'll be ready.

Yeah I'm very lucky to have my job not only because everyone is losing their jobs and because it's a source of income for me but because it was so hard for me to get a job in the first place. And yeah staying in touch on the phone with my friends and boyfriend has helped some and yeah I get what you are saying about feeling wanted by someone else. Hopefully being away from my my friends and boyfriend will make us realize how important our relationships are and make us even closer in the end when things get back to normal.

I've been a bit depressed. I've mostly been depressed because I'm unable to see my friends especially my new boyfriend. It's got to be really hard for college students right now. I'm kind of glad I graduated before all this but my friend who is still in college is struggling with classes being online and has to retake a class in the fall. Also with everyone losing their jobs I'm glad I still got my job.

I'm starting to realize art is really more of a hobby for me and not really something I want to pursue as a career. I feel as though I'm really meant to be some kind of leader though I'm kind of reluctant about it.

Graphic Softwares / Best Free App For Digital Art
« on: March 08, 2020, 11:58:09 AM »
I managed to get out my wacom tablet and am thinking about getting back into drawing on my computer. Now I'm wondering what would be the best app for me to use on my computer for digital art.  I mostly draw manga style and want to eventually make a manga someday completely digitally. I have read a book on how to make a comic digitally on the computer using Photoshop. I use to have Photoshop back when I was in college, but I find it too expensive and besides I'm finding drawing is really just a hobby for me so I'd rather use something free. Currently I have sketchbook pro and krita installed on my computer which are both free and plan on comparing the two programs to see what's best for me. However, I kind of want to hear what you have to say. 

Music / How Has Your Music Changed
« on: March 03, 2020, 12:59:48 PM »
I'm just curious how has you're interest in music changed over the years. Growing up I would listen to whatever my parents would listen to which was country. As I got into middle school I got into pop. Back then pop was very different then what it is now. By around 2012 I stopped listening to pop as much except for some of the pop I listened to in middle school and switched to rock.

Sorry but I just dont believe autistic people are actually smart. There just seem to be too many stupid people in this world and I worry I am one of them.

Manga Artists Tools / Re: Tool Recommendations?
« on: February 22, 2020, 10:15:13 AM »
This is just my preference but I prefer traditional wooden pencil over mechanical I guess I can sharpen it and get a good fine line. Besides it's annoying when the lead in a mechanical pencil breaks. A regular HB pencil should do for drawing but if you want to shade with pencil you might want to get a softer pencil. I prefer to shade with a 4 or 5b pencil but its different for everyone. As for inking I use a set of microns in varying sizes as I hate using nib pens because of how old fashion they are. The only problem I have with microns is it will smear as I color in my drawings with copic markers. As for carrying your art supplies around to school I would recommend using your school bag if it's big enough. If you want to keep your supplies safe and organized I would get a makeup bag to put your pencils and pens in then put that in your backpack. I was an art student in college and that's exactly what I would do. Also if you're a middle or high school student I would only reccomend drawing in school when you got time like if you got nothing to do in study hall. But I know how tempting it can be to draw during a boring lecture.

True even if you are born with a natural talent for something if you dont practice every day you won't get any better. Still I'm starting to see my talent for art as not much of a talent especially if even stupid people can make art. Still I would like to have a talent. I just wish I had a more useful talent.

I've heard that autistic people are usually naturally good at art but what's the point of being a good artist if you're stupid. I guess art isn't such a great talent to have after all.

break Room / Am I A Natural Born Artist
« on: February 19, 2020, 06:47:06 PM »
I'm suddenly wondering if I'm a natural born artist. I'm reading that most natural born artist are into art at a young age. I didn't get into art though until I was about in 2nd grade and started getting inspired by all the tv shows I would watch and stuff like that. When I was younger though about 5 I didn't have as much interest in drawing and would draw people as stick figures. By 4th grade though I won 3rd place in a state wide art contest, which I consider my biggest accomplishment. Also I come from a rather artistic family on my dad's side. My dad has mentioned to me that back when he was a teenager the family would get together and play music. Also my uncle use to oil paint. I often doubt in my own abilities though, but I guess I'm my own worst critic. Also I have a hard time staying on task and focusing for very long.
