Hi! I'm thank you and I'm very glad to be here!

I've been kind of living on the internet the past couple years, so finding nice places on it is always fun.  I'm not old enough to have been on a lot of forums but the ones I've come into contact with have always felt really cozy to me. I'm an art student and I'm in my 3rd year now. I work in a lot of different mediums but my major is in painting. Recently I've been doing a lot of coding and website building which has been a pretty nostalgic experience because of how long ago I learned to code.

I always kinda feel that I have nothing to talk about but art so I'm not gonna do that. Instead, here's some things I like in no particular order

  • Ghibli movies (howls moving castle is the best one this is not my opinion I'm just correct /j)
  • 3d modeling
  • walking empty streets at ungodly hours of the night
  • petty crime
  • cyber crime
  • obfuscated c code
  • Secret little haven
  • Rainworld
  • black coffee
  • fucked up looking stuffed animals
  • video essays

Ye!

Some of the channels I like are philosophy tube, folding ideas, Jacob Geller, and Big Joel. Jacob Geller's stuff is prob some of my favorite, they're all really polished and they bring up a lot of ideas about media (video games mostly) that I don't think I'd have ever thought about.

this one is still my favorite video essays like 4 years after the fact (yeah really doing a lot to not talk about art lmao)

aw thanks!

3d modeling isn't something I've had a tonne of success with, the only thing I can remember actually finishing with it is this model of a gar that you can spin. I tried doing v-tuber models a long while ago when 3d models where more common, but I never really got the workflow down, which is the case for most of the times I've come CRAWLING back to 3d modeling. Now that I'm actually kind of getting it though I wanna keep going with it.

I use blender. I don't really know of a better pay for program that I can "legally acquire", and its pretty impressive that a free project is packed with so many features! My biggest problem with it is that it tends to chug more and more the longer its open, and some of the shortcuts are just like why??? why would you choose that????? but other than that its great.

if anyone has any suggestions on other 3d modeling software I'd be glad to hear about them! I'm pretty new to the whole thing so I'm not stuck in blender

Tysm!! Im so sorry I missed this before! I'm trying to take a lot of Cronenbergian fleshy shapes and mix them with old computer elements if that makes sense? I haven't done a lot with the computer bit of that but this blog by Ken Shirriff (definitely worth a look if you think old computers are neat!) has a lot of the kinds of imagery I wanna put in there in the future. Stuff like magnetic memory units and a lot of cables being managed with various degrees of success.

Woah! I think that they way these computers look really reflects the fleshy shapes you've used in a way that makes the computers seem biological. :ha:
