About This Hangout

The place to share creations, projects, and ideas!

  1. What's new in this hangout
  2. This time I decided draw the same character that they were drawing, mostly because I wanted to try and draw a specific face, and because HORNS! But, because we're so busy with all the various announcements, changes, and the Community Assembly, I'm probably not going to be able to finish her this weekend, so here's my sketch! I tried drawing her way bigger than I'm used to, mostly so I get to focus on details. As a bonus, earlier, I also did some practice drawing the faces straight on. The top two were based on the same scary terry, and were mostly a practice of differentiating the same base. These are also twice the sizes of faces I usually draw, and I'm quite pleased with them tbh ? The one on the bottom left is an even bigger face, and I wanted to try an expression. It's the first time in a long time that I've drawn an open mouth of any sort (the last one I drew made @Wolfie yawn every time she looked at it), and I'm pretty pleased with how it turned out ? I got distracted and also drew the dude's body ?. As you can see by the eraser smudges, the hand on the hip gave me tons of trouble ?
  3. Hey hey! It is Wendesday, so it's time for another episode of Pub Draw! I was a bit worried that if we do it every week it'll be too fast, but turns out that some of the episodes will be practising and improving stuff we've already learned, with some advanced techniques. It also features Laura drawing on a tablet, so anyone who's not using paper, now you wont feel left out! ? This episode is another head drawing episode, this time it's from a slightly different angle, so that we can better learn how to work with heads as an actual 3D object rather than just flat faces drawn from straight ahead. Timestamps: 2:08 - Skip the ad 3:30 - Intro 6:15 - Start drawing If they're gonna keep starting so quickly, I don't think I'll keep including timestamps ?
  4. I'm way too busy to start these but they've been on my watch later -list since the beginning. Maybe I find motivation for this from this discussion. I really would love to learn to draw but I've always been "too busy, too bad, too critical" etc to actually do it... Maybe now is the time.
  5. And here's what I drew after Episode 1! I didn't draw Keyleth, the character they're drawing, instead I went for a merfolk, cause I love drawing merfolk! ? ? She's not very symmetrical, but rather than keep erasing and fixing things, I figured I'd focus more on working with my errors, noticing them, and then trying not to repeat them when drawing something else. If you want, come along on this journey and let's have some fun! If anyone else is following the tutorial, post what you drew ?
  6. So, despite spending most of my school days doodling away and actually spending more time drawing than taking notes, @Wolfie can tell you that I never actually practiced any techniques, and that's painfully apparent in my anatomy, hairy lines, and just general lack of consistency, so I thought it would be really cool to actually learn how to draw with some basic techniques, and it might actually improve my skill ? Enter Pub Draw And lo and behold, just recently, Critical Role came out with this brand new show called Pub Draw, where seasoned artist Babs Tarr teaches Marisha Ray (and occasional guests) how to draw! The goal of the show is to basically teach us how to draw a character - like your D&D character - over the course of a couple episodes, so it'll even have some cool stuff for drawing other races! I thought it would be really cool to follow the show and post what I've managed to cook up, and maybe some other people might want to join in too! Don't be shy! Here's Episode 1: Because this is a live show, it does have a little bit of extra chat, but during the actual drawing it's nice cause it gives you time to draw and catch up ? Here are some useful timestamps though: 5:30 to skip the start and the sponsor shoutout 13:00 to skip the intro (which is mostly going through tools and encouragement ? ) 15:57 to jump straight into it and start drawing! ? Also, if you want to do some extra credit, before Pub Draw became a show, Babs and Marisha actually already did a similar drawing lesson, which basically functioned as a pilot for this show. It's basically the same procedure as in this first episode, but I also watched that one because I thought the practice would be good ? The episodes come out once every 2 weeks, and so far there's only been I think two or three, so once we catch up there'll be plenty of time between each episode for everyone to participate without a huge time pressure!
  7. Lastest LEGO MOC, small office desk mascot for my life partner:
  8. Hey everyone! Welcome to the brand new Creators' Corner! We've transformed the Community Showcase forum into the brand new Creators' Corner, to create a better environment for people to share and discuss their creative pursuits! ? It makes use of the IPS Clubs feature, but don't worry, it's not an exclusive kind of club where you have to know somebody who knows somebody to get in. To start posting, all you have to do is click on the "Join Club" button on the top right. Then you're in and you can start posting straight away with no wait times or confirmation shenanigans! Note: If you posted any threads in the old Community Showcase forum, you were automatically added to the club. You can leave and rejoin at will. What is the Creators' Corner? This is the place for people to talk about their creative pursuits, share pictures of projects, WIPs, or discuss inspirations or share cool crafty stuff from the internet. Whether it's drawing, painting, crocheting, music, or culinary attempts, if you're the kind of person who likes creating, or simply likes to see what other people create, this is the place for you! Where do I post? What am I allowed to post? Aaaa help. The post area (where this post is located) is carried over from the Community Showcase, and you can simply make posts about anything you create or anything related to arts, crafts or other hobbies. And don't worry if you're not sure what you're posting belongs in here - the worst that can happen is that it gets moved to a more relevant area ? Feel free to talk about anything and everything in here! You can also check out all the old posts - most creators tend to keep one thread per project or theme, so you can easily follow up with anyone's work! Using the Gallery - Artists rejoice! The Gallery is a new feature that's more suited for sharing works or projects that are mainly pictures, such as if you're an painter or other type of visual artist. If you go to the Gallery tab, you should see an "Add Images" button. Click the button, and you'll get a popup asking if you want to add images to the category directly, create a new album, or if you want to use an existing album. If it's your first time posting, or if you're beginning to post a new project, the best option is to "Create a new album", so all your related images are contained in the same place. Once you've created the album, you can upload images to it at will, and users will be able to comment individually on pictures, or on the entire album. You can also post updates or link to the album from anywhere else on the website. Following the content you like! One of IPS' best features is the ability to follow specific things, and set how exactly you wish to receive notifications regarding certain things. When you click Follow on a particular thread, forum, gallery, or any other database, it will give you a notification of your choice when something is posted. This makes it really easy to keep in touch with the things you like to see! You can choose to follow specific threads, people, or even entire categories, and individually set the notifications for each one. For example, if you'd like to receive notifications whenever anything, from posts, to images, to comments, is posted in the Creators' Corner, you can follow the Club Overview, alternatively, if you just want to get updates when new images are posted in a specific album, you can follow that. Overall, Clubs offer us a lot of features, which can be added or moved around at will, which means depending on how active they get, they can have mulitple post areas, or gallery areas dedicated to different things, or even a blog or calendar, so we can tailor them to our needs! If there are any permission issues, or other issues with the new features, please let me know! I'm really excited to see where this goes! ?
  9. Launch Yourself Into The Sun With Pippin's Music
  10. Hey peoples ? So if you've heard of me, you've probably heard that I'm a massive music nerd. I work as a sound engineer, and in my downtime I sometimes make music that I feel isn't enough of in the music world. And then I upload them here! (Oh wow, there's even a massive Soundcloud feature.) I find it hard to describe it all with one genre, but I tend to just say "progressive rock". It's 99% instrumental, and everything's played by me. There's not really lyrics or anything, but I do my best to conjure up a very specific mood or sort of tell a story with just noises and sounds. Sometimes it's about strange architecture, sometimes it's about an android having an existential crisis. Enjoy, and lemme know what you think! ?
  11. and you will make mine if you'll take the photo! EDIT: btw guys, if perhaps you only view the forum and don't have account to be able to send a private message to me, then you can contact me on Discord (JoannaBanana#0602) or in game if you have any questions etc: Jean Green.7208
  12. [deleted message with pre-t pic and asking for help with video for contest and stuff, won 50g, I'm rich, you know]
  13. I'm huge fan of LEGO since early '90s and I hope I'm not alone with it here Just few years ago I can get enough bricks to make my dreams come true and start to build reall stuff. Some of My Own Creations [LEGO community is calling it as shortcut: 'MOC'] can be watched on huge exhibitions in my country. Favorite topic is of course Star Wars, the original saga and old canon, now called by Dinsey 'SW Legends'. Here are few pictures of my MOCs: Tusken Raider and his bantha after sandstorm on Tatooine. Rey's Speeder from "SW Force Awakens" modified to xmas theme Marsz Wilków ["March of Wolves"], taken from movie scene that you cn find HERE Modification of Corellian freighter YT-1300. One of modified models of it was famous "millenium Falcon", my own was build on LEGO set 7965, with few new features MrGutsy of Fallout 4
