Cute girl snuggling up close to >>405, so close that he can feel her warm, soft skin pressed up against his body and her gentle breath on the side of his face, whispering into his ear that he shouldn't kill himself because she wants to take pleasure in his suffering and she can't do that if he's dead.

‚¨‚Ν‚ζ‚€, it's >>179 again. I completed drawing 100/10000 today. That's an average of about 2.5 days per drawing since the last time I checked in, which is a 100% increase in frequency. Still not where I'd like to be, but it's progress.

I'm still primarily drawing gestures, and probably will continue doing so for a while. As my technique improves I'm getting a lot more comfortable with the basic proportions of the human figure. Previously I was just doing a simple skeleton, but I've added hands and shoes at low detail. It's amazing to me how expressive hands can be.

Currently I'm doing 3-5 gesture sketches at about 7-15 minutes each and calling that "a drawing" for my counting purposes, but I want to get where I can do maybe twice as many gestures at similar quality in the same amount of time. It still takes me quite a while to mentally process the pose and first bits of structure, so perhaps I should try some high-speed drills to make it a bit more reflexive. Also I'm starting to think maybe my skeleton model itself could use some improvement.

Off and on I've begun using r/SketchDaily's reference site, which is specifically designed for this kind of thing. The timer feature is nice, if a bit buggy. The image bank is about 20% useful to me by volume. Considering it's free, it's not a bad deal overall.

As for inorganic objects, I've been working on airplanes. The long lines and exact proportions are suitably unforgiving for working on pen and arm control in a way that rough humanoids aren't. I'm concentrating on military jets, for obvious reasons. Lots of neat prototypes out there that don't usually get a lot of screentime.

I've also experimented with a few techniques I haven't really touched before, including digital oil-style painting and meola-style splattering. As much as I want to think improving requires some sort of restrictive approach with specific incremental objectives, I'd also say a reasonable amount of fully unfettered play is equally important. Also, clouds are fun.

Inspirational artist shoutout: Salvador Dali. Ever whimsical and humorous, he had a very long and fruitful creative life. He's well known for a few particular pieces, but I'd recommend spending some time looking through the rest of his stuff too.

I just remembered some youtube vid where a college age communist was arguing with a Russian expat about the virtues of communism. I don't remember any of the argument itself, just that the Russian guy looked thin and healthy, and the college commie was a fat blob of a kid who looked like a six foot tall infant.

No wonder that tubbo wanted cradle to grave care.

Protip: it helps to actually click the Reply button instead of just thinking you did.

Right now I'm probably not in a situation that would allow for drawing classes, but I won't rule out the possibility in the future. There do appear to be a number of life drawing clubs and meetups within a reasonable distance. Even though they're likely to be very supportive and helpful groups, I'll probably wait a little while yet and build my skills and confidence before participating; as I mentioned, I'm pretty shy.

Those are from poses found on r/SketchDaily's reference site. Since writing that last post, I've found some more resources to try out as well. Will report back.

You're on the list.

I'm sure it's been mentioned enough times that people will have seen it, but do NOT take out their "free" protection. Its license agreement contains a clause that prevents you from taking them to court, suing them, taking part in a class action lawsuit against them, et cetera.

Was Data purposely written to be reminiscent of someone with an ASD/Aspergers? Not just in the meme way it gets thrown around on the internet nowadays but as in actual clinical autism. The strange, jerky head movements, the way he launches into an anecdote about something he finds fascinating but everyone around him finds boring but he can't read their disinterest so he just keeps talking, the way he's constantly presented as someone with "outsider syndrome", always observing but never participating, even the way he avoids contractions. Textbook ASD, I wonder if it was intentional.

443 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-8787 13:16

Also the way he just up and leaves when the information that was needed to be exchanged was exchanged and a conversation is "over".

You should write a Buzzfeed article. "12 Signs that Data is Actually Autistic. [GIFS]"

447 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-8787 23:59

So the real question is, why do writers and actors assume that robots will act like autistic people?

448 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-8788 06:03

>>445 I don't know any robots but I've known a few people with autism. For some reason they all like Star Trek, and they see Data and go "woah, yeah, that's me".

Perhaps they understand that creations will ape their creators regardless of any other intent.

452 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-8788 21:06

Correlation does not imply causation. Robots do not pick up on social cues. Autistic people do not pick up on social cues. That does not mean robots are autistic. Autism was not as well-known a condition during the writing of TNG as it is now, and the likelihood of them writing an autistic person in as a secondary character are vanishingly small. Imagine, for comparison, a gender-queer "Weslie" Crusher in a 90s TV show about space.

>>442,452 nah their take on all that was Barclay.

The reason Data can come across that way may actually be because they didn't have good direction on his character a lot of the time, so poor Brent Spiner got stuck with a default mode of tic-like head-tilting and confused scowls.

459 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-8791 15:35

Asperger was doing research in the 1930's. Rain Man came out in 1988, the year after TNG first aired. And even if autism had never been discovered, it still existed, and there's a very good chance that the people involved in making Star Trek had met autistic people in the past -- I mean, think about who watches Star Trek. Even without thinking the word "autistic," you can write a character based on a specific kind of intelligent loser who has trouble understanding people. Either that or Data was based on the real life robots that use overly precise language and actually exist.

*waves balls in your face* ensign, plot a course for the Gonad nebula

461 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-8791 19:03

Data's reliance on precision in language was, if anything, based on the real life computer systems at the time that required jarring levels of precision as they were unable to understand the nuance and ambiguity present in natural language (though they are still impressively awful at this task). "Tea, Earl Grey, hot" was another symptom of this lack of cognitive power which the writers assumed computers would still be encumbered with several hundred years in the future - short-sightedly, given the progress in the short years since, or perhaps to make the show more accessible to its audience (much like The Matrix dumbing down the human farming to be about power rather than computation).

That or Data was autistic, fueling years of episodes' worth of social commentary on one specific disability without ever mentioning its name, and Troi was incredibly dense to never notice his condition.

Capitalism=Surviving off grief seeds and witches
Communism=Fighting Wraiths

463 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-8792 07:49

A short addendum because I should be doing other things:
It is convenient that Data does not exhibit any of the behaviors associated with autism that make it a difficult condition to manage: he isn't easily frustrated, he doesn't have fits of violent rage, he doesn't have any obsessive compulsions, he copes easily with communicating with others, and doesn't shut down or melt down in unfamiliar situations and/or surrounded by strangers. He can cope without a minder in everyday life. These would be easy focal points for plot elements, but Data is not an autistic robot so they never surface. He also exhibits character development in his learning and becoming ever so slightly more human over the course of the series, which is a difficult thing to portray if the character had a disability which - almost by definition - prevented them from "learning" their way out of robotic-looking behaviors.

There's also the precedent for Data acting like a "robot" from all previous depictions of robots in sci-fi television and cinema.

472 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-8794 20:19

Try lying on your front, resting your weight on a cute girl. If no cute girls are available then a body pillow may suffice.

473 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-8794 20:27

I once considered this myself, and I came to the conclusion that a bed allowing the user to recline at adjustable angles would be useful. For example, I'd like to lean back at about a 45 degree angle or so, with my feet braced against a footboard and my laptop supported by a standalone tray.

I've also come to the conclusion that this is massively expensive, yet useless for pretty much everything except using a laptop, and so would be even less feasible than installing a projector aimed above my head at the ceiling, modifying dentist's lights to hold monitors, or various other ideas which sound much more stupid when you say them than "bed which reclines at adjustable angles".

474 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-8794 20:33

This puts some pretty severe strain on your neck. If you try to avoid the strain by letting your head droop down, blood starts rushing to your head.

This is only because you need a line of sight to your laptop, though. If you allow that line of sight to be interrupted, you could try resting your lips on the cute girl's (or the body pillow's). They should provide good support.

475 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-8795 07:30

I lay on my back, use a tall pillow or two to prop my head up, pull up my knees and put my laptop on them. So I'm kind of looking up at toward the ceiling and my knees prop my screen up facing straight toward me. I think it's pretty comfortable, easy to type too. When I get tired I just adjust the angle of my head and knees.

476 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-8795 09:21

I've always dreamed of having a bed, wireless keyboard and projector-aimed-at-the-roof combo, but I've never lived in one house long enough to make it a worthwhile investment. It definitely seems like the best solution when it comes to neck/back pain.

Or a dentist's chair and an IKEA concertina bathroom mirror to hold the laptop (use large screws).
