Bump limits and reply limits on threads have been changed across the site. Instead of the massive 500/750 it used to be, it's now 150/225 for the Anime & 2D Media board and 250/300 for the Japan/Otaku Hobbies board. We're hopeful that this will encourage the creation of new threads instead of having everything sit in months/years old "general" threads.

I've had a VERY cool idea for a character thing:

Some sort of evil creature (demon king?) who was so powerful and evil in the far past, that all the kingdoms/heroes ganged up on him. However, he was SO powerful that he was impossible to kill. Instead of banishing him to a different realm (or w/e), what the heroes did is that they SPLIT him into many many weakened clones. Tens of thousands of creatures physically identical to the original, and spread all over the world. The evilguy's power was also split into tens of thousands, so each individual clone-creature only had a tiny amount of power, maybe even less than the typical human.

However, whenever such a clone is killed/destroyed, his tiny amount of power is evenly distributed between the remaining clones. This means, the more clones are killed, the more powerful the remaining clones become, until eventually the power is consolidated enough to be a danger to the world again…

Have you seen any interesting dreams lately?

I just woke up from a dream where I was living in a banged up hotel room sort of thing and I got a new porcelain toilet seat delivered. I was with some anime girls who I recognized as my dead relatives and I extolled the grandness of a porcelain seat. After replacing my crappy plastic one I went to get breakfast from a donut stand in the hallway and waiting in line was an old friend I haven't seen in over ten years. We didn't really talk though and the lady behind the counter was singing some weird song about baking to the tune of the first stage song from Perfect Cherry Blossom, as she was bringing haggises and danishes and stuff out of the oven. There were two streams of the waiting line and so somehow I got in front of my old friend even though he was already there before me but he was already holding his haggis somehow despite that. He was still waiting in like though which is strange since you have to actually get to the counter to ask for something in the first place. Anyways I got a cream cheese danish and was going to get an apricot cream cheese danish but I saw a blueberry one so I got that instead and I also got a haggis. The dream ended when I paid and started walking away and bit into the blueberry danish.

>>29737
well to be fair, I did draw the whole body before drawing clothes and hair on her, I just didn't want to redraw it all. It's supposed to just show you what construction is, not be a step by step guide lol.

you obviosly have to know what the body parts should look like at the position you want it and where its supposed to attach to the body, I'm not very good at anatomy myself so I cant really give you a rundown but here's a piece of advice I've found pretty useful:

Try to find a reference image for the pose you want to draw, if its a specific outfit or character, find one for that too, having an image lets you KNOW what it looks like, so you don't have to guess what goes where.
There's no shame in looking toward pros to help you learn stuff. That's basically what drawing the same images from an artist is, you're seeing what goes where, why the clothes fold certain ways, why the arm is attached like that etc.

of course you might want to learn anatomy eventually, I remember my mind being blown when I learned the elbow is always in an arc from the lowest part of the rib cage, so good by overly long or short arms hehe.

no half measures only full measures, you have to try and want it
its hypocritical coming from me because i havent always put in the effort necessary but you gotta do it
>That flannery face is leagues better than where I'm at
doesnt matter if someone is better or worse than you, you're the only you in the world so you gotta be you, cant compare your progress to others
there are 13 year olds drawing professional level shit while i'm drawing absolute shit in my 20s and its embarrassing but i keep going
no need to apologize i just want to prevent you from getting into the absolute shit mindset i've had for years
at least spend 30 minutes to 1 hr to something you want to get better at daily
30 secs a day for a week is only 3 minutes and 30 seconds
30 minutes a day for a week is 3 hrs hrs and 30 minutes and 1 hr a week is 7 hrs a week
you can see the discrepancy between times and obviously see how spending 7 hours a week on something adds up way more than 3 minutes a week

No need to feel bad. That's great, I'll get in touch when I have a time nailed down, and I'll let you know a bit sooner ahead of time as well. I'm thinking of maybe making it a monthly thing but we will see. If anything I've learned that doing it too often creates waning interest.

I don't want you to think I don't think these are good threads or don't appreciate the effort you've put into them because I do, but unfortunately the software doesn't work on a thread wide basis and patching that in would likely end up as more of a headache then it's worth.

This OP made me realize that the default text color on this site isn't black, but in fact brown. Let's take a moment to appreciate the Miko theme.

The quoted text is actually black for some reason possibly because quotes don't work in the OP (pls fix this Yuno I just fell victim to it as well)

I figured that instead of continuing to post threads for one off historical topics, I'd make a dedicated thread for me to dump some neat info in every now and then.
It will also offer a place for other Sama anons interested in history to post their anecdotes as well.

>Japanese engagements with Austria-Hungary

To me it's entirely bizarre to think that Japan came into direct conflict with the dual monarchy during the Great War. While Japan was on the side of the Allies, the Austro-Hungarian role outside of the Balkans was very small, however I've found at least two Naval engagements between the two countries.

Between September 5th and 6th, during the Siege of Tsingtao, a Japanese Farman MF.11 biplane launched from the Japanese seaplane carrier Wakamiya attempted to drop bombs by hand onto the Austro-Hungarian protected cruiser SMS Kaiserin Elisabeth, as well as a German gunboat, stationed in Qiaozhou Bay.
All bombs missed their mark and the Elisabeth's anti-air fire was also ineffectual, however it's noteworthy in that it was the first ever seaborne airstrike in history, and launched by the Japanese at that.

On June 11th, 1917, the Japanese destroyer Sakaki was torpedoed by the Austro-Hungarian submarine U-27 off of Crete.
While the Japanese suffered between 59 and 68 killed, more than half the crew, the Sakaki miraculously stayed afloat and was salvaged and repaired.
Other than the Siege of Tsingtao this engagement had the highest combat related casualties for the Japanese in the war.

Nothing specifically; however the stuff about the 1874 Expedition to Taiwan does include sections about the Japanese Navy; ships, Admirals and contact with the fledgling Qing Navy, namely.

However I do have two anecdotes that aren't .PDFs you may find interesting.
Firstly pic related, Jiunzo Matsumura, the first Japanese citizen to graduate the US Naval Academy.
Secondly, a former Confederate ironclad that was given to the fledgling Japanese Navy https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Japanese_ironclad_K%C5%8Dtetsu

I hope these are of interest to you.

It's interesting that the main focus here is the "transmission of power" to the tank rather than the remote controlled scheme as we'd expect to read about today. Goes to show how much of an impact electrification and the combustion engine made on the average person way back in the day.
