    OtakuBoards: What Next?

    It's truly amazing this site is still around... While I don't post on message boards, I on a whim decided to check to see if any of the places I used to post are still around... Low and behold OB is the last board standing for me. It's crazy to think that I joined here in 2002 and last posted in 2007! My mind is blown right now...

    Anime Karas

    I know we would rather not revive old threads, but I didn't feel like creating a new one :rolleyes: Has anyone else watched the final three OVA's / episodes? It took about a year for them to be released on DVD, but I finally got to finish watching this series yesterday, and man was I blown away. I had to read the summaries for the first three episodes on Wikipedia since it had been a while since I viewed them but Karas is definitely among my favorite anime of all time. Episodes 4 and 5 were very well done... [spoiler]in most anime when the main character loses his powers he becomes a complete wuss but Otoha was just the man. He was even more heroic / badarse when fighting the mikura without the ability to transform into Karas than he was when he could transform.[/spoiler] Episode 6 was also good, it was just kind of odd that the final battle wasn't as good as the first battle between the unnamed Karas and Eko (it was still a great fight, and when you take into account the other events that occured as a result of / during the battle it was definitely more significant / emotional, but man was that first battle entertaining) from an action standpoint, but the dialouge was pretty deep... There are rumors that there may be a sequel movie / OVA but I guess only time will tell...

    Anime Gundam 00

    I've liked Gundam 00 so far. It seems like it's going to go a very similar path as Wing did and because of that appears as if it's going to be easier to follow, lighter on the drama, and full of more action... This is like my first post here in over a year... Wow I'm surprised I remembered my password... :rolleyes:

    Art It's Quiet Here... [Suggestions?]

    What you could do to really spice things up is to hold two signature-of-the-week type competitions a month and then have the winners of those two competitions participate in a signature battle against one another to determine who the "best" signature maker of the month was... *I suggest making signatures rather than any other sort of medium since they're fairly easy to make so lots of people can compete, and because this would be a long term thing and signatures rarely tend to get boring / tedious to make since... Anyway the biggest problem with the "Art Studio" has always been the fact that people will post their own work but not take the time to comment on others' work. As a general rule when I view a thread with someone's artwork in it I try to make some contribution to the thread, I mean if I clicked the thread I took the time to view their artwork so spending a few extra minutes writing what I think of it isn't going to hurt me...

    Art Vector Work - WIP

    Yeah the man boob-ism is something I'm having trouble with, but I'll probably end up throwing clothes or some sort of armor over the character anyway :'=]... But the clothes are actually where I'm running into delays right now, I don't want to use a simple shirt and pants design for the character so I might have to bust out the old pencil and try to get ideas that way... @ Boo [quote]Will you be using it for something in specific?[/quote] I'll probably be using it in part of the layout for a personal portfolio or blog. [b]EDIT:[/b] I added clothes but they ended up being the simple styled clothing that I didn't really want. I'm still working on trying to add a suit of armor to the character but I can't get it to look right... I guess I'll add wrinkles or a design to the T-Shirt since the bottom half of the shirt looks rather too flat...

    Art Vector Work - WIP

    There hasn't been a lot of time or motivation for me to work in Photoshop since starting college, but here's something I drew up while messing around in the early morning hours of the day... [b]As always if you view this thread I'd really appreciate a comment or feedback of some sort.[/b] [img]http://img205.imageshack.us/img205/4152/facecopybe2.jpg[/img][img]http://img167.imageshack.us/img167/4858/facecopydq9.jpg[/img] [img]http://img442.imageshack.us/img442/4093/facecopyvl6.jpg[/img] edit: I added clothes but they ended up being the simple styled clothing that I didn't really want.

    Art GameRef - Game Magazine Cover

    [url]http://img386.imageshack.us/img386/585/magazinecopy0sv.jpg[/url] Here is a quick updated version of the cover. I have to fix Snake's hand again so that it is behind the "E" but that should only take a few minutes. I'm still debating as to whether or not to add a barcode (I don't know how relevant it would be), and i'm still tweaking the "Final Fantasy" / other game text. I'm also thinking of removing all of the page numbers from the cover...

    Anime Anime that need a sequel/continuation

    As much as I hated the reused animation and horrible use of CG graphics (not to mention the complete butchering of the manga storyline) I would love to see another Buzzer Beater series that follows the direction/plot of the manga more closely. From what little of the manga is available to read online (legally) the development of characters and plot twists throughout the early story really hooked me... If I give this some more thought I'm sure I can come up with some other series that could use a sequel/prequel but I'm off to do some homework for me...

    Art GameRef - Game Magazine Cover

    - All right i'll adjust the levels a bit and see how the background turns out. - Dagger you are about the third person in the past 15 minutes who has complained about how Snake's hand cuts through the text :'x so i'll probably end up changing that... - As for the somtimes odd grammar... I guess I should fix that :animestun. All the text was meant to be filler text but I guess I liked my filler text so much that I have already started to write articles about the random headlines I created :=P Okee dokee i'll be sure to update the image again... edit: [url]http://img515.imageshack.us/img515/1279/magazinecopy5lr.jpg[/url] I'll update the first post later, but in the url above I added a slight "tint" to the "ref" text. [b]edit: I updated the first post yet again ~ 3:38 p.m. Also if anyone is interested in helping with the magazine just drop me a private message and wel'' talk :rolleyes: [/b]

    Art GameRef - Game Magazine Cover

    [b]Eh I updated the first post again with a new bg, larger text, and some other misc. adjustments.[/b] @ Tical - Thank you for the compliment @ Aaryanna - I'll work on blowing up the text or making it clearer since I got the same complaint on another board. @ Retribution - Yeah =P just comment on the new version if you would be so kind. I may change those squares with rounded edges to circles, but that'd basically require me to recreate/reposition the entire right side of the image :'x

    [url]http://img510.imageshack.us/img510/8324/magazinecopy8jy.jpg[/url] Ugh i've been working on this for a while, it's basically an online game magazine I plan on releasing on a bi-monthly basis in .pdf format. Some of the text is still just filler text and the "Pg.07" text and circle looks a little odd in my opinion but for the most part this image is complete. Any comments or criticism are much appreciated. [b]*Link Updated May 13th, 2006*[/b]

    Art Be Happy! (A Photoshop Doodle)

    I'm still working on this photoshop doodle but figured what the hell, just in case this image ends up in my amazingly long need to be completed list of photoshop graphics i'd let you all see my greatness... [img]http://img352.imageshack.us/img352/2369/untitled1copy3ja.jpg[/img] Mmm, as stated above this was just a for fun doodle, but honestly how can you look at that little guy and not smile =D!

    Art Why do so many people use photoshop?

    o_O; man i'm not even going to bother explaining Photoshop's superiority of GIMP, you need look no further than a large art website such as DeviantArt or Shadowness to see the results for yourself... Now if you were to debate whether PSP or Photoshop is superior you could make a good argument there. Generally speaking Photoshop is a more powerful program with more plugin options, I haven't taken the time to compare the differences in the newer version of the program but simply put Photoshop is the standard for graphic designers everywhere, that alone is a testament to its superiority over GIMP (and to a lesser extent PaintShop Pro). That's not to say GIMP is a bad program, as it is a great cost-effective alternative to Photoshop but if you're serious about graphic design sometime down the line you'll probably switch over to Photoshop and never look back.

    Art Operation6

    Image created for a graphics contest. As you can see the image is primarily text based, and although the "a" and "t" look odd the text is supposed to read: "Operation6" (I actually cleaned up the "t" a bit but decided to leave the "a" as it was in the default font): [url]http://img510.imageshack.us/img510/6237/splashround2copy3lc.jpg[/url]
