Didn't know about the variance
>Does fall make you feel like a new year has come?
Honestly, I have a hard time even telling it's a new year.
It feels like we're still in 2020.
What about you?

>Nobody would buy merchandise advertised on imageboards anyway.

Maybe it's time to pivot...
Let's mix gacha gaming with imageboards!

Yeah I still think the covid pandemic started last year.

Actually the automatic reply feature was my attempt to add gacha amusement.
Many other boards have fortune telling features too.

I think fortune telling would be amusing, but it may also be a bother to add as a feature.

It is fun to think about how to seriously monetize an imageboard seeing as it's rather difficult to make any B2C[1] business. Especially considering the target demographic.

Content-centric businesses are hard to make profit out of in general.
People who want to make more social media are a dime-a-dozen too.

If I had to be serious, I would first make an account on ko-fi or something to accept donations. It may not be difficult.
Then I could try to add premium account features where premium users can use special emojis or something. I might open art commissions too.
Selling mod rights as subscriptions might be an idea.
But such money-grabbing features can ruin the essential charm of imageboards and anonymity.

Also, the biggest challenge is that once I start to receive money, I have to bear far greater responsibilities.

>once I start to receive money, I have to bear far greater responsibilities

But what if you get ikouchan at a steady revenue and you can live off of it without working for someone else ever again?
I think it'd be funny to make a chan and call it 'shillchan' where the whole premise is blatant.
People are here to sell you stuff, so let the best shill win.


>But such money-grabbing features can ruin the essential charm of imageboards and anonymity
The charm of imageboards is also its downfall in my opinion.
Money talks; it says, "Value is exchanged here."
Everything has a price...

Can i get some help rendering translucency manually in traditional art.

Like how the value are placed and so on based on the form and placement in the scene

So far i only know that the color will multiply whatever is behind but then the refraction and caustics comes in and reflection makes it all confusing

I can see how one would enjoy the merits of traditional art more.
I just think that digital art is more versatile.
You can take the digital art you make and then make a Visual Novel to sell out of them!

I don't know.
When I think about the art I want to make, I think about how can I create something that resonates easily and effectively.

how does illustration gets graded in anime manga industry, either for portofolio/studio, or in the social media?
like how does it get its score

from anatomy to color, how would each of it becomes the value it has, counted, or however it is measured, transalted

Good sleep could work.
I also suspect it may be about how much you believe in its meaning.

For example, people often believe there's meaning in just chatting with others.
And we can convince ourselves in the meaning of an anime plot.
It's up to you to discern which has meaning...

When you have to put up with the BS of technical support and the turning-wheels-to-nowhere of corporate living—compounded with the doldrums of the day-to-day relationships—one is forced to conclude nothing has any meaning IMO

I mean, that's what happened to me (still fighting it at times)
I just try not to think too much about it—or anything, for that matter.
Lately seems like thinking is a parasite of knowing language.

I know the feeling.
JoJo references are everywhere and people keep saying “Is this a JoJo reference?” everywhere.
I didn’t expect JoJo to become this popular overseas.
Despite never having watched it, I feel like I’ve had enough of it.
