I just checked out their front page for the first time in a long time and it's incredible how much the overall quality of art has gone down. It used to be mainly dreamy photography and fantasy artwork and such, pretty cheesy, but now it's all anatomy-illiterate anime, foot fetish, ponies, and the occasional big name artist from the olden days. Did everyone just move to their own Tumblr/FB pages? What really caused dA's downfall?

The 'premium' mode, perhaps? Also it's probably easier to get attention for art on sites like Twitter.

Anonymous 4618

>>4617
There is a premium mode now? I remember when they offered subscriptions/premium memberships, but they didn't really improve experience that much - I got one gifted for a while and it didn't really improve exposure either. Just some added profile stuff.

I noticed that it was easier on Tumblr to get notes due to the snowball effect, but the feedback was also a lot less verbal. Mostly reblogs and likes for appreciation rather than thought-out comments, and with users posting everything on their blog no matter if personal or art related, it was harder to find profiles worth following because I really don't care about someone's fandoms if all I want to see is their work.

The Promised Neverland is the first anime I've watched in a while (~2 years) and I reaally am enjoying it! My friend insisted that it was great so I tried and then binged the first 5 episodes and read the whole 122 chapters the next day, haha.

I don't think the anime really "ended", since the manga was still ongoing at the time.

Well, much like "steampunk" it's not really very "punk", bur it's alright. I think it's an aesthetic that's used to broadly and without meaning, like the way people will put vapourwave aesthetics over stock films of any old crap and think it's cool.

Basically it's fine but people misappropriate it.

Anonymous 4508

>>4501
It's not an aesthetic at all, it's a literary movement that started as a counter-movement to the utopias common in science fiction at that time and combines the rebellion of lower classes, liberation of the oppressed, "hacking the system", and self-modification using drugs, implants, cybernetics and such. Even when used as an aesthetic, that aesthetic still includes the cornerstones of the movement, like diversity, wealth disparity and all that (except for the bare minimum "cyberpunk" at the very surface of subreddits like OP described). Also, Vaporwave is rather soulless by design because that's the point - consumerism, nostalgia, and the fact that Vaporwave already started out as satire.

Anonymous 4513

>>4508
Posting again to say that the "punk" part doesn't come from the punk "aesthetic" either but from the themes of rebellion, social/economic castes, and grit. I think Steampunk really is more of an aesthetic than a movement or genre, but Cyberpunk is not.

Anonymous 4515

>>4513
Steampunk was a movement and genre before cyberpunk ever existed. The only fault is that it was long out of vogue before the internet could get to it. Themes of rebellion in it mostly revolved around Luddism, Ecology, and Autocracy, with the destruction and resistance against technology more prevalent than the usage of it against evil.

God I hate that kind of "artwork".
Ah yes, I always wear bikinis in bed while contorting myself to look at a screen. Also, a woman's favorite fabric for everyday clothing is vinyl and we love riding high-tech motorbikes in barely any clothes at all. What would a highly technological world be without titties?

Stuff you love to hate Anonymous 2891[Reply]

Do you read/watch things "ironically" or as hatewatching/hatereading?

I used to read the Twilight saga for the sheer ridiculousness, later did the same with The Hunger Games and 50 Shades of Grey. I also enjoyed reading "snark" blogs about Twilight back in the day, especially the LiveJournal sites like Cleolinda's blog.


Recently I've been watching Shadowhunters with my bf for the horrible plots and cheap CGI and it made me reminisce about those times. So yeah, let's talk about those stories that are so bad you just can't stop.

Other than vinesauce, the only youtubers I really pay attention to are dunkey and leah. They have to be the greatest couple to have ever lived and they make some of the most comfy videos in existence, especially when it comes to their livestreams together (if you watch them in 1.5x speed that is…). They're straight up uplifting.

I'm a huge nerd and I really enjoy Pikasprey's videos. He makes gaming related vids but in a really genuine seeming way. I stopped watching videos about video games for ages prior to discovering him because I was sick of youtubers trying to pander to 13 year olds or cash in on the algorithm all the time.

I used to follow a lot of goth/alt youtubers but i've gone sour on all of them aside from angela benedict and even then i barely watch her.

Karolina ┼╗ebrowska is a vintage fashion goddess and also has an amazing personality as well. So happy to see her mentioned in this threads

I never miss an upload from Overly Sarcastic (history/literature animation channel) or Steph0sims (sims 4 content, but makes it actually funny). I know how CC feels about trannies and overaly leftist ideology, but ContraPoints is pretty neat as well and I recommend watching one of her videos fully at least once for the set design alone.

No, get out and stay out. I'm not even against leftists (pretty left myself) but ContraPoints is an absolute joke.

Making music on a computer Anonymous 4572[Reply]

I want to get into making music, especially synthpop kind of things.

I don't play any instruments but have a basic understanding of piano and music theory. I have a MIDI keyboard and some software and synthesizer plugins and VSTs.

But I'm not sure how to start actually writing a song. How do I build the instrumental? Do I start with the basic melody and fill it up with bass, drum, etc or is there a rule I should follow? What are some good resources for songwriting? Does a total beginner have a chance to find people to fill in the blanks like with mixing or putting production touches on the song? I know nothing about places like SoundCloud and how this scene works.

>inb4 vaporwave meme

Not really but if it helps with practice so be it.

So far I've done some snippets of instrumentals, but I have no idea how to really change the sound into what I want and I lack the vocabulary to look up what I need because I don't know what to search for.

Any resources is appreciated and of course this thread can be used for general discussion and sharing.

mog - Multiplayer Online General
This thread was made so people can post about any game that supports multiplayer online and to make it easier to find others to play with.


I just started playing FFXIV and made a Lalafell because they are so small and cute. I tried taking some pictures of the one I made but I couldn't get the angle right. Does anyone else play it? If yes, in which server? I wouldn't mind changing servers if that meant playing with someone else especially because I just started and haven't done much yet.

this is TERA, it's very good because the castanic and elf races are very handsome (the humans too I guess but their huge hands are weird) and there is lots of skimpy armor like this. The only bad thing is a lot of classes are female only and there's lots of creeps playing as lolis dressed in equally skimpy armor but I guess I can't judge them too harshly because I downloaded the game just because the characters are so handsome.
