calling all drawfriends! the English translation we're working on for the Black Book of Capitalism ( >>>/leftypol/1122230 ) could use a nice cover ( >>>/leftypol/1164715 ). post ideas, sketches etc here
I have a Makefile the builds the pdf of the book, and it could be adapted to convert one or two images (front + back) into pdfs and then those pdfs using pdfunite (found in the pdfjam package)
there are many ways to go about this, see https://tex.stackexchange.com/questions/17579/how-can-i-design-a-book-cover

Engels would be proud.

that's literally amazing, did you draw it?


Does anyone know who this topless woman is? Was it someone Engels admired? Or just a random nobody?

Adobe literally assumes you will pirate their stuff. It's part of their business model to assume students will pirate it to learn the skillset that they can then use when they get hired by a business who pays for the software or they buy a personal license.

I wanna learn how to draw. But where do I even start? What's my study plan? Is it even worth it considering I'm in my very early 20s?

Hey anon I just started learning to draw in my early 30s, so you can't be worse off than me.

I suggest going over to 4chan ic and download their torrent - you really just want the Glenn Vilppu lectures - and then never go back that place its a shithole, but the torrent is legit. Then buy the picrel book, a used artists anatomy book (Rubens, Richer or Goldfinger) and Bridgman. Start Vilppu's drawing manual which should get you comfortable enough to do the master studies in the Hale book. After getting more comfortable with anatomy draw Bridgman twice:

How do they do it? How do they get away with making careers out of such bad art and commentary? Is it possible to make actually good political cartoons? What would that even look like?

post some or make some too I guess

>23.6 mb video of a still image


How did you reduce the filesize that much without touching the video resolution? Audio sounds a bit more dull, so is it due to better video compression? I want to learn how to be better at video editing.


Bitrate is more important than resolution.
Lowered the frame rate and video bit rate as much as possible in the editing software without ruining the quality (software more suited to a still image could do even better). It's a still image so you could have below 1 fps, although Vegas kept crashing during the render if I didn't give it at least 4 fps.
The audio uses a lower sample rate, because it doesn't really affect it that much and you don't need high quality audio to get the joke.
>is it due to better video compression?
I could convert to webm and it would probably be better but no this is an mp4 just using a lower bitrate and frame rate. Most frames in typical video codecs are only concerned with the pixels that changed since the previous frame, so on a still image you should be able to get a low bitrate without ruining the quality. IDK how to adjust how often the keyframe is rendered, but you could reduce that as well. I think there are even video codecs that just use a static image instead of rendering it as a video at all.


Thank you for explaining. So you used Vegas? I'm using Shotcut for now. It's pretty gud and simple to use.


>Bitrate is more important than resolution.
Holy shit I've never thought of this before.
Fuck I'm dumb…

Ok, so this started out as a joke; a commie dommie mommy I made: Tsarina Svetlanna. It'd be a great addition to the imageboard. Course Im not artist; So how bout this: Take this character, and draw her however you like. You can tweak clothes, proportions, faces features, etc.; as long as Svetlanna's still recognizable.


Btw, some facts about the Domina:
-Red Hair
-Green Eyes
-White skin
-From Moscow
-Sadistic owner of the means of reproduction


Looks kinda fun, a little bit like that character from Camp Camp.


I forgot the freckles


Ok come on, I dont mind!
