@argr Few know this: Pinterest is actually extremely powerful. If you collect a few examples of a genre of image, it finds you 10 more. The genre doesn't have to have a name. I reached satiation on a pinterest about the specific aesthetic of artfully naked postorganic humanoids from the a game I was worldbuilding in 2015 pinterest.nz/strange_door/star

The algorithm *knew what I was talking about*.

@argr would it be anything if we started a Space Marine pinterest.
Annihilation beast/mutationkult/postfurry geurilla force pinterest would probably end up being more visually interesting, but I just came across youtube.com/watch?v=aFdBcYN3sN and want to file it somewhere

@metkis Is there anything you are grieving that others too soon forget? Is there a game that you facilitate for others, but cannot yourself play? Have you ever loved the eternal, the universal, the necessary, which stands in opposition to the arbitrary, the transient, or the parochial?

No artist would ever knowingly use the deformed coordinate system, but I'm concerned that a lot of artists might be suffering it unknowingly right now.

They don't seem to believe me. It's been like this for so long that I think they need to hear a second opinion. @rek, @ritualdust your voices would be appreciated here: gitlab.gnome.org/GNOME/gsettin

Gnome desktop does something absolutely horrible with tablets right now, the default aspect ratio isn't 1:1. It defaults to compressing the X or Y axis to fit the screen. This meant that for the first couple of months of having a tablet, I couldn't draw a circle, I didn't know why, I thought the problem was me.

It turns out it was because the desktop environment was deforming the coordinate system.

I can't imagine how bad this would be for someone learning to draw.

Some glaive. The blade was initially blue and glowy, hence the reflections on the knob. Should have made those a masked layer.

You vs the Dragoon that The Vizeer told you not to worry about

(DA thinks they might be directing a semi-realtime actionpuzzle type game and although I burned out on making that type of entertainment content, I will try to support them with a few drawings)

Hi everyone! I'm a programmer who is obsessed enough with cities that I started going to grad school for urban planning.

I'm interested in finding ways to make cities cleaner/more sustainable, especially when it comes to transportation. tl;dr, I'm all about making more space for people and less space for cars.

In my non work/study time I've recently started working on my own wiki/digital garden, which you can find here: stevegattuso.me/wiki/

I'm very excited to be a part of merveilles!

("them" being makeplayingcards.com sry, which I still recommend for prototype runs)

why is their printer THIS off lol, the distinction between field and forest barely comes across

oops, mis-edited that, meant to be "about creating particular types of signals with your modular synths", I don't know whether it has your specific modular synths in it. it might

Is anyone playing Signal State? store.steampowered.com/app/157 It's kind of like a zacktronics game with your modular synths (I'm not playing, but I want to know if you are, for reasons)

I decided to look in on Athens properly. I'm not currently able to say that we have an excuse to be a separate project from them. This is basically the neschat concept: twitter.com/AthensResearch/sta

They're already making the underpinnings. I can't see any substantial incompatibilities with the note-taking functionality and neschat's forum/chat/wiki feature cluster.

Someone finally went and made clothes out of some vantablack type stuff (IR Flock Sheet from Ko-Pro Japan). I notice they're turning up the contrast on the camera pretty high though. Other issues: It has no stretch, and it absorbs all IR so it would be extremely hot when the sun is out? (oddly he doesn't mention this despite being a chemical properties youtuber)

If you'd be interested in contributing to this: merveilles.town/@faun/10751108 project, please say so in a reply to THIS toot (not the toot that I just linked).

I've written up the "everything is just a tree of objects" forum/wiki/chat system concept: makopool.com/neschat_design_ov

So, tell me what you think. Shall we make this?

Revel in the marvels of the universe. We are a collective of forward-thinking individuals who strive to better ourselves and our surroundings through constant creation. We express ourselves through music, art, games, and writing. We also put great value in play. A warm welcome to any like-minded people who feel these ideals resonate with them.
