Haven't shared my Croquis in a while, quite happy with this one :) NSFW for artistic boobs

I never shared this one.
Back from when I was in with @Jennahos - Fox Village~

My dad and I are both rather reserved people who like to let loud music speak for us.
He invited me to see with him. I didn't care much for it but knowing that is his favorite band I went along.
On our way there I asked him whether he had seen them live.
"No, but I saw the LiveAid concert and it was the best I'd ever seen."
This concert is the climax of the movie. He sat still as ever, but tears streaming down his face. I joined him. Introverts bonding.

Trying material studies in black and white~ Specifically shiny and glassy surfaces. I think glass needs a bit more work. I thought it would be interesting to share my thought process though~

Linus Tech Tips | Microsoft should be VERY afraid of Linux gaming now.

Noob's guide to Linux gaming.

Finally a video by a mainstream youtuber covering Linux without inaccurate information! Probably the most Linuxy content yet seen on that channel.

What interesting times of growing transition away from Microshaft and its cronies towards, not macOS, but indeed LINUX.

My SO is going on a business trip to . We usually communicate via which is blocked unless you use a - he considers getting and I also found . In case either fail, is there an easy way to communicate with him? Does good Ol'fashioned E-Mail work?

My dad works/used to work with renewable energies and the whole supply cycle, like organizing trash disposal/recycling for our city. It makes him an amazing resource for questions on . Hes not a fan of Sci-Fi or Fantasy, but I just managed to interest him in helping me figure out the world of my story. Not only did he have ideas I didn't even know were options, he also brought up a whole new set of things to work on that I would have never considered. Amazing.

I recently discovered the tool for plannimg and plotting a novel (or in my case comic). Its really comprehensive and helping me a lot with my long-term-project. However I think I wouldn't have understood it without having read a few things about story structuring before - I read a few books on that last year.
So if you're into structuring your creative works I can totally recommend it :D

I've posted before about my wonderful granddad who passed this christmas. He was an amazing artist and architect. A cousin uncovered works from when he was a college student (Bauschule, not to be confused with Bauhaus even though my Granddad was obviously inspired by it)
The works are from 1950 and show his love for lettering and accuracy, even at age 21.
Looking at my own college notes I am ashamed in comparison.

Go where it hurts. Learn to know what you avoid, then try to learn as much as you can about it. Don't get discouraged if it takes some time to get better, eventually it will! And it will be worth it.
I held myself back for years out of fear of failure. But: It's okay to fail. It's even good to fail! Just try to learn something from failing.

I saw a video on and thought this scene looked eerily familiar... Like something that I worked on...

Hi everyone! I'm an undergraduate student studying translation studies with English and Spanish as my complimentary languages. Studying in Heidelberg but currently living in Salamanca, Spain.

As my current objective is to become a conference interpreter, I've always been fond of other languages but I wouldn't restrict my interest to only this scientific field.
Looking forward to meeting others and participating in interdisciplinary discussions!

One thing I was wondering about: Couldn't despite its actual intents lead to a decentralization of the Web and a new rise of self-hosting and aggregator websites so content creators can more easilly oversee their own work?
Sure, we don't have the monetization infrastructure for that now, and it's definitely not the intent of the thing, but is it a possibility?

Edit: Nevermind I forgot the monopoly corps will get exceptiond.

I just came up with a little comparison.
Tech designed "for your convenience" but actually keeping you tech illiterate (eg Apple Products) is like selling people picture books "so you don't have to learn that pesky reading". There's a lot of information going under your radar because you're encouraged to stay away from more conplex information.

Sooo one of the Dreammakers pages on Tumblr got flagged by the algorithm. Apparently the depiction of Dike slamming into a street sign was too sexually explicit!
