I know I had one of my own kicking around once upon a time (probably from mortal combat), but who knows where that's gotten to.

You absolute menace. Soon enough I'll get back on there, once we are both past Sai then we may exist peacefully in the top 10.

Only because it puts me near the top 10 :P (Manimal watch your back you're next)
Yeah half the top 10 aren't so active so it shouldn't be a problem

We all have the power Suuper. No need to wait on me. In fact we have a whole Bleach board still, last time I checked.

Hit a big milestone - went past 4000 A4 pages in the last month or so. Finally scanned all the pages in and could count them.

Spoiler

oh and while I'm at it I noticed I'm 9th in post count now :P

Good Lord Suuper! Is that literally every drawing you've ever done?

Congratulations!

I literally said 'Holy sh**' when I saw that. Hot damn and you managed to organize them in folders too!? That'd be a lifesaver for me man. Serious props Suuper! Lol I want to steal those and see them so badly. I'd take your insane output over a curated sketchbook any day. I just love A4 papers.

How much does that even weigh?

haha thanks lego glad you're impressed. I'm sure if you sorted yours out it would be just as impressive though :P
fortunately I kept a lot of it in chronological order so it was just scanning the whole lot and hole-punching what I hadn't already.
apparently an A4 sheet weighs 5g, so thats just over 20kg haha XD

Well, I scanned them all in......I might upload it all now haha (actually I need to back it up on google drive anyway)
to be honest my art gallery is a decent summary of my output over the years :P

Thanks v. much. I too love A4 paper a lot.

talking of milestones and Lego doing the 1000 hands challenge, I stupidly came up with a self-level system that would help an artist to see how much work they do and where they are lacking.
mumbo jumbo explanation
It's not really comparable due to every artist studying differently, but it would work for oneself. I will probably do this once every 6 months due to it being a real pain lol. it would be great to compare with others but it would be impossible to manage :P

Basically each skill (hands, faces, body, hair) is split up, and the amount you have done is counted. so for example, Lego has done 1000 hands. each skill levels up on a power of 2, so 2,4,8,16,32 and so on. that means his hands skill is at level 9, soon to become 10 (2^10 being 1024) (I think)
your artist level is either based on the average of all your skills, or you gain 1 point for every level of every skill, with the same 2,4,8 level boundaries.

This doesn't measure skill, but output, but since these are heavily linked I think it's worth a count. shame it's such a pain to measure. each level boundary being double is a reminder that you have to put in a lot of effort to significantly improve from the level you are at, and it's noticeable which area you haven't done much work in.
maybe double is too much but you get the idea.

I made this stupidly the other day on a high but forgot to post it and now I've reminded myself. based on the 10000 hour mastery but not actually related since I sketch a page in 25 minutes average :P
I wanted to do this again but with the levels thing I said above.



red and blue for HP and MP obviously :P

EDIT: here's a mini cool random mockup that would work as a profile image/signature (just about, given the tiny profile images)
If only I could put as much effort into things that mattered like manga lol

Holy crapatoa that is amazingbeans and you have too much time on your hands in a really good way haha! I'm making one for myself. It's punishing and encouraging enough to give you a sober idea about how much you actually invest in drawing. Man I want to be level 10 in lots of things now haha.

Damn, that will be a great thing for you to be able to back everything up. Lucky bastard.

Can't wait to see it!
Maybe make a new thread for it and make it "official". we can discuss rules and stuff (I'm wayyyyy too serious now :P)

True. It certainly gives you a kick up the backside if you aren't doing enough :P

I have a local hardrive backup but online is the way to go. If the house burnt down I don't think I could handle losing all that paperwork. My digital works aren't really backed up either T_T

Again, I say "Good gods, boy."
I assume eventually I'll be up there in the top ten as well, probably by around this time next year. Just wait until I catch up on all the happenings and non-happenings since I've been gone.

Rule 118 forever.

@suuper I did a prelimenary count of what I have so far on my PC, but I definitely need to gather up all my drawings and at least weigh them to get an idea of how many papers I have. As of now though I have about 1,700 digital drawings so I could count that. Because I'm focused on making sequential art and manga I counted how many pages I've done so far (410) and gave myself that overall level. The other meteres are my own vague impression of my self: Low accuracy, low rounded knowledge, high output lel.

Go ahead and make the topic dude! I'm interested in finding out how to standardize all of these sorts of things. I know I've got some points for cubes and mannequins at least, but it'd be nice to see how little or how much I've done for stuff like animation and the like. So yeah.

1.7k digital is nearly double my digital works. thats a great amount of work!!
You can also measure the height of the paper stack, each sheet of paper is about 0.6-0.7mm high (0.5 when new in a ream)
I've probably only got about 100 manga pages. I can't seem to stick with it before I start going on skill grinding :P
