>>17853 Keep at it fren :) Nice work btw
>>17853 Anon, I'm sorry to say but this is just too mediocre to have a chance at being lucrative. Even in furry you will see hundreds of really competent artists going even for the most vile themes and not always succeeding beyond subsistence on commissions and then burn out because commission work is exhausting.

>>17853 Not into sexy furries, but nice work but you'll hve to really do some R and D and advertise yourself and a patreon (or something like that). The only thing that you may have to deal with is having to do full out nude pinups or porn if you want to only do these kinds of works, though you can easily hide this with keeping it private and/or on Furaffinity >>17857 Are you kidding? I've seen worse furries who charge (and get) hundreds of dollars for something more mediocre than those, pic related.
>>17853 On reddit you can upvote yourself, just be sure to use proxies for the upvotes and put a bunch on each proxy. You'll get banned doing it on your own IP.
>>17859 Well, I was under the impression that there's thousands upon thousands of people there who draw like that or about like that, and when I visit their pages it's always such a miserly sight. Just look at the frontpage or forums' art sales section. The ones who are worse and make bank are mostly just happened to be there earlier. Picrelated seems to be better at construction and perspective even in this rough tbh. The example of someone to look up to if you want to succeed on fa in 2020 is someone like hriscia or reykat. Or Miles DF if you have lower standards.

Cats Anonymous Comrade 06/28/2020 (Sun) 06:19:33 No. 10931 [Reply] [Last]
Do you think cats can pass the mirror test? My cats seem self aware, but aren't interested in mirrors. They also have zero understanding of computer screens, and keep crawling behind speakers looking for the source when you play recorded cat meows, no matter how many times you do it. I really wish I could communicate enough with animals to explain how technology works sometimes, or how certain things are dangerous to them. It would be more fun if I could teach cats about light switches, or if we could design VR video headsets with games that cats would like to play.

>>16486 I always do. Most of them end up warming up to me, though. They can't resist my top-grade petting skills.
>>16449 Hunting mice and birds just to show off to owners is standard for domestic cats, at least where I live. One of my cats caught a giant rat once and displayed it on the front door mat. They still prefer eating canned processed shit even if they hunt.
I wish I could post cats without doxing myself to a ludicrous degree. I love my four cats. Although my oldest is my favorite. There's absolutely nothing better than an old as shit cat. If you treat them with the most basic respect, they'll follow you into the gates of hell. Younger cats are much more work, and aren't content to be your conjoined twin.
>>10931 Yep, it seems that, after initially being confused about the "other cat", they quickly learn that it's a reflective surface, then they lose all interest, not even being curious about the "room" that's visible behind their reflection. After all, reflections are also found in nature, like in the water.

>>17806 I've kept all my strength despite not lifting for 8 months due to corona but I lost all my definition, mad as hell because I am too busy with work to go to gym and train regularly, feel like a flabby sack of shit.
Stopping by from 4chan's /fit/ Thanks for gifting the world that wojak edit, I'm so fucking tired of /pol/ coming in and setting up shop there. Some of us just want to lift and not have obese political assholes shit up the discussion. Hammer curls, preacher curls, and regular curls all work out different areas of your bicep and this concept can be applied to other movements for a more complete workout.
>>17821 Containment boards don't work. /fit/ and /k/ became totally fucking unusable once the retards from /pol/ started showing up with their "lifting/prepping for the race war and daddy Trump" garbage.

>>17085 You look big... how long have you been working out for? On a side note, I heard that working out heavily makes you go bald sooner due to increased hormone production. Is it bullshit?

>>17752 Fuck the Gifted Program, all my homies hate the Gifted Program. Do you know if you talk to most any burger with knowledge of this they will fervently defend the segregation of students into different ability castes? WHICH IS ALL BASED ON SHITTY ASS IQ? GRR. People implicitly know the education system is absolute garbage for most people, but this shit gives bourgeois parents an out to identify their shitty kid as special, and be able to hoard the scarce educational resources onto a small section of the student body. The irony is that this shit doesn't work, studies show kids will learn more by being all integrated regardless of ability, the kids who are singled out as "gifted" just learn to give up at the slightest adversity because they couldn't possibly need to struggle to learn something. Rant over, sorry for offtopic post.
>>17798 >Fuck the Gifted Program, all my homies hate the Gifted Program. Based.
>>17798 I don't remember too well, but when I was in second grade they put me in retard segregation for a day because I would ignore everything the teacher said and stare into the abyss. Then I guess I did well enough there that they took me out and gave me and IQ test, I got a big number, and then I got put in the 'gifted' program for the rest of my days. I don't necessarily know if there really is a Bourg element to the 'gifted' program, but it is absolutely an exercise in IQ-based segregation likely with roots in eugenics (if I had to guess) I would definitely agree that 'gifted' did absolutely nothing to help me nor my fellow students in it in terms of developing intellectual capacity, but the program also did get more resources than the rest of the school: great efficiency there, eh. If you were in the program of course, you would get priority if you applied to go on any field trip or outing, which is some real IQ-based caste shit. I always did pretty shit at half of the gifted stuff anyways and was always really bad with socializing compared to the rest of my 'fellow ubermenschen,' so I'd guess my 'magical big number' was more a side effect of a certain spectrum if you would. Or some other manner of non-neurotypical disorder; I would say they should have kept me in 'special' for some help instead of 'gifted,' but I doubt they actually help all that much, and just serve to keep you cordoned away from the normals. Pic unrel again
>>17757 Couldn't agree more. That is an actual design from the man himself for the National Life Insurance Building in 1923-25 that never got built. The few buildings he designed that weren't suburban houses commissioned by bourgs were truly splendid. Makes me think how nice it'd be to have Soviet style mass-production of real Prairie stuff, that doesn't abandon FLW's actual style and aesthetic. Folks here are quick to judge him I feel since he did do mostly suburbanshit for bourgs, but it was his intention to build stuff for working folk. Just couldn't actually work out that way due to material conditions. An architect is allowed to be a bit of an idealist damn it. As long as they're not a fucking NAZI like a certain Herr Speer. sage for off-topic

>>16739 >I'm still amazed that TNG looks so good in its visual quality Did you watch the HD remastered version?
Okay, so I watched the first episode of STD, spoilers ahead. It was pretty boring and the world-building sucked. Basically, Burnham got herself catapulted 1000 years into the future, already this notion sort of destroys the suspension of disbelief. From a technological angle, they barely made any achievements. Warp technology got replaced by the quantum slipstream we saw in that Voyager episode. Oh, and transporters are now portable (but have a 30 sec recharging time which makes them worse than portable transporters during the TNG era). Other than that, no significant changes, aesthetics have just moved towards a more Apple Store based design which is fucking ridiculous. And of course, Burnham has seemingly no problem immediatly being able to use all the technology and weapons. It would have been way more believable if they got her 200 years into future instead of a fucking 1000, what was the point of that? In that episode where Scotty returns in TNG, he already has no clue about how to use stuff and that's just been 70 years. Apparently Burnham can just pick up an interface from 1000 years into the future and be an expert with it (meanwhile Jay-El can't even push a button on a starship anymore after his retirement in Picard). Ship design, as it was an issue with the Picard series already, is practically non-existent, we never get a full shot of any vessel and if we do it's a complete cardboard ship designed by a 14-year old after watching the Star Wars prequels. Again, it has a pretty Star Wars-ish vibe to it with rouge traders, Coruscant-like cities, mercenaries and the chad Burnham immediately hooks up with even has Jedi powers. Burnham also gets on a drug trip that was supposed to be comedic relief but it didn't came over that way because she just isn't endearing enough as a character. She also gets eaten by a gigantic worm, sadly the thing spits her out again. They moved on from the grimdark shit of the last seasons and seemingly try to be more optimistic, but it's still full of needless action and shaky-camera shots, again, more like Star Wars than Star Trek. Even in the slower, character-focused moments we get a shaky cam. There is also a scene where Burnham kills 4-5 Andorians and Gorns (!) with in single combat with a weapon she never saw before because it's 1000 years more advanced. Like I have no problem with action scenes but this isn't the fucking Expendebles. Federation is gone which was seemingly caused by some apocalyptic event 150 ago and we don't know what empires or factions exist, it all seems to be gone and only city-states and rogue traders exist. Apparently an apocalyptic event destroyed Starfleet that had something to do with the warp drive causing all warp-powered ships to go down (which would imply that every other faction including the Borg or the Romulans would also be reduced to shambles?). I guess we spend the rest of the season trying to find out what really happened with Burnham helping to rebuild the Federation, as there are sprinkled elements of the Federation still active. Discovery is also coming back and based on the trailer we see how it will get equipped with 32nd century tech, what the fuck the point of that is I don't know. It's basically trying to make an aircraft carrier out of a 15th century Spanish galeon. My prediction: Less outrageous SJW shit, still Burnham-centered but they'll try making her look less of a bitch (but she's still a Mary Sue), there will be more optimism, but overall it's probably gonna be super boring. Oh, and they are bringing the "Empress" back from the mirror universe, saw her kicking some ass in the trailer.

I don't know if this will remain relevant with the financial failure of Lower Decks, however > Alex Kurtzman Planning a New Star Trek Animated Series > Development on any further Star Trek films appears to have stalled, but the franchise continues to prosper on CBS All Access. Apart from current titles, the network is planning to extend its reach beyond the live-action realm. In a recent interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Alex Kurtzman revealed that another animated Star Trek series is in the works for the streaming service. > “Our goal is to not only expand the definition of Star Trek and what has qualified as traditional Star Trek, but also to tell stories that are both self-contained in a very short period of time that also connect to the larger picture of what we’re doing, not only in Discovery but in the world building of Trek in general,” Kurtzman said. “And you get to tell these very intimate, emotional stories that are side stories to characters. So you get the benefit of the experience in and of itself but then when you watch Discovery you’ll see that these were all setting up things in the world of season two.” > Kurtzman didn’t share any specifics about the new cartoon. But when it launches, it will be CBS All Access’ second animated venture after Mike McMahan’s (Rick and Morty) Star Trek: Lower Decks. That series offers a comedic take on the adventures of a Starfleet vessel’s support crew. “[Lower Decks] is totally different from anything we’re doing on any of these other shows and we decided to tell that story and make those people the heroes,” Kurtzman explained. He also indicated that additional animated shows are possible down the line. However, he insists that “each show has to have its own identity.” How utterly delightful, not https://www.superherohype.com/tv/432069-cbs-all-access-planning-a-new-star-trek-animated-series

If there's something I've learned in the past couple of years is that a considerable amount of animators in the industry are austists, degenerates or both.
