Howdy do! I draw sometimes.
Last thread hit its bump limit, so let's start oven-baked fresh. I'll try to do more requests this time around, but only when I give the word.
May occasionally contain NSFW.
I thought you went away for good.
Glad to have you back!
gastrictank never leaves
i can count the number of my fans on a single hand but i cant let them down
Worth a shot to ask.
Requesting a human having sex with the female gargoyle from Tales From the Darkside. Make the gargoyle say "Promise you'll never tell."
I tried to get a good depiction of what the gargoyle looks like for reference.
man i aint takin requests right now
ya gotta read the op
this is one of those times where i post a naughty bit
I can't believe you even posted about this on tumblr
gotta show all your fans how you aren't perturbed by the silly anon hate amirite?
gotta lash out against criticism where everyone can see so all your fans can click "like" or "reblog" and agree with you. so your fans can tell you that you aren't some kind of gimmicky "chumpstick" who draws fat tits on ms paint with a mouse. who will never improve because improving means dropping the gimmick.
so go and post about this post on tumblr and show everyone once again how cool you are
Radical insults man ya' got me! I feel so bum blasted right now. I can barely sit on my tear-soddened chair.
Hey. Dingus. It was just for a chuckle. Calm down. Don't take a shitpost so personally.
is there really any reason you type like this?? there's no way you talk like this irl
everything about you is a gimmick. the least you could do is drop the ms paint style. it really is the worst thing about your art.
also have you ever once replied to criticism without a shitty sarcastic comment and a reaction image that you mad yourself? you act like you're so much better than andrew dobson but you fucking act just like him.
we done got ourselves a wet blanket here folks
soaked with tears
i will spare you the sarcasm but the reaction images are a must
S'alright. Anything bitter anon and thirsty anon say after my last post don't really matter for the sake of argument.
Thread might be slow for awhile, I'm for the most part caught up on anything worth posting.
I myself am not a fan of Gastric's work but to say that binary objectively looks bad and that its not taste is wrong, there are many "binary" artists in /i/ Oolong and Gastric being examples, outside of 4chan, Cubesona, Binarypen and Shwig... many more I don't know the names. Art is a matter of taste for some pixelated art is the devil while for others they think that for realism there is photography.
while there are many things you can critic about gastrics work, this is /i/ not /ic/
Binary has that effect where your brain anti-aliases the picture for you, which make the picture more engaging
For Gastric's shit I find it helps create the illusion of motion he's so good at creating
But objectively, yeah
It's a bad style for pin-ups and static images
S'not to say I won't make do with traditional brushes.
I personally just enjoy binary. It's a lot more manageable in some areas, too. Like creating a flat colors layer or manually tapering lines without having pen pressure.
now i know you're just shitting around and i don't care for gastric's stuff either, but whether something looks good or not is an opinion (beauty is in the eye of the beholder).
also this is an oekaki board, which usually binary, even if no one here wants to use it for that
Did you seriously make a post begging for attention on your tumblr, Gastric? Come on man, you're better than that.
Regarding that post; I wouldn't call your porn "cute." Praiz's stuff? That's cute porn.
Ain't nothin' wrong with a request for a little signal boostin'. When it gets to the point where it's a recurring jam 'n' spam then it becomes unwarranted.
Not that you do requests Gastric, but if you're still in the mood for drawing booty AND pokemon. I humbly ask for a crack at Jessie, but you know. You do whatever, and we'll love it ( except for that autistical hateboner anon )
I'll take you up on the booty, but may I choose the Pokemon dame? Got any other possible candidates?
How about Misty with a huge badonkadonk and huge hooters that the suspenders cut into, and get some high heel versions of her sneakers. That or Cassie. Maybe even nurse Joy or officer Jenny. Or hell, get a crack at Lorelei, someone with little to no smut of at all.
Lorelei I will do, but not the anime version. FRLG and all following games have best iteration.
Except something within the next day or two, I'll be out tomorrow.
There's a story behind that actually. Friend had an itch to draw a Shygal, so he did. Without telling me what for, he asks "What's the first name that comes to your mind."
"Dingus", I said. "Dingus."
Also here's a tiny thumbnail preview of the Lorelei drawing, I'm still deciding on how I'm going to go about lining and coloring it, in terms of binary/nonbinary, thin or thicker tapering lines, etc.
Lorelei's gonna be on the backburner for awhile, I gots a handful of junk I still gotta do for my patrons and commissioners, and that's all while trying to force myself to find the motivation to do these things.
designing pokemon trainer outfits based on pokemon is pretty fun tho
Hey I love this guy's design so I had to doodle 'em
keep up the good work man!
Well, you can argue that is is /i/, the "doodle fucking whatever and have fun board, so shut the fuck up anon"
I'd rather say that his drawings are best described as "dynamic and cartoon-y"
So exaggerated proportions of all kinds are probably what he likes to doodle the most; and does the best
He's still a salty fuck though
This anon is so easy to rattle; I love it.
But hey ho, where did this body-type jazz even come from or did that "slender woman" joke doodle just fly over anons' heads.
I mean c'mon anon I ain't even mad of course I can draw different body types I just have preferences. I'll call you when I feel like drawing something less ample, but don't wait up, it'll be awhile.
you're the one who was acting like a twat and now you're going "lol u mad"
your backpedaling won't work on me. you could have made a simple reply in the first place instead of making "quirky" sarcastic replies. you even posted this one on tumblr
every time you receive criticism you call the person a mad anon and laugh it off while showing all your fans your reaction. you're a hack my man
Of course I'm not gonna answer you seriously, what with your initial passive-aggressive remarks that you claim to be artistic "criticism". Ya' gots to be nice to be treated nicely.
I don't think the disposition matters. You show minimal signs of improvement and no form of criticism, nice or mean, has pushed you anywhere outside of your comfort zone. You're just gonna keep drawing the same shit because people already eat it up. You have people actually paying you monthly for it so why even bother?
All improvement, no matter how minimal, is still improvement; my bud Oolong will tell you any day of the week. Ya' gotta look on the bright side, pretty much. That said, I'm not in any sort of rush to break the 'toon mold, but that doesn't mean I'm not truckin' along. Thanks for the concern though.
Have you even been watching his art? Dude's art often changes and he very often draws dynamic poses and characters. I'm not sure how anybody with any real knowledge could think he's not improving.
Keep it up, GastricTank.
I just want to see something substantially different. I apologize for assuming that you don't care about growing as an artist, it's just that some of your posts really rub me the wrong way.
Oh, how foolish of me. I shoulda posted the screenshot.
Might start adding a little more flair to the characters, but still retaining a lifelike simplicty
I’m clearly nowhere near good nor motivated enough for the audience that is the internet. I feel like even my friends and acquaintances could care less.
I think I’ll finish August’s and September’s Patreon works and then refrain from posting for awhile. Gonna start studying some more, practice digital painting, etc. Commissions will still be open.
Mmm mmm! That post earlier wasn't me, but I will say that I did post that on Tumblr. Some of the words were poor in choice in the heat of self-doubt, I will admit.
Alas, I meant what I said, although to a much less sappy degree. I personally feel that my art is lacking in interest, even amongst friends. So with that said, I'm going to poof!-vanish for awhile so I can focus less on socializing and more on honing my art, and finding a job too.
I'd be lying if I said that it wasn't because I want more people to like my art, myself included. But hey. It's a goal.
I'll see y'all later.
Thanks! Ordering a drawing tablet as I type this.
Splitting for real this time. whoosh
Sorry anon, not yet. I resumed posting on that conflabbit navy blue website but I think I'll limit my posting to the other, more fun threads that occasionally pop up here.
For now, at least. Might come back with a new thread. Maybe requests, maybe some interactive stuff. Something that's more than me just dumping the doodles I post there anyway.
He just doesn't post as frequently now. He's got a lot of metaphorical shit on his plate.
Mmm... I'm not really the one to answer that question. You might catch a well-drawn face by me on a good day but other than that it's mostly just silly dots and lines, picture related.
If I knew a little more about your process I could probably steer you at least somewhat close to the right path.
Gastric, you belong on facepunch so don't drag your normie spastic drawings over here, thanks.
