Hello CYS members!

I'm trying to get used to drawing digital, so I would like somebody or anybody to give me a small little suggestion on what I could draw! Nothing inappropriate!
It might not be the best, but I'm trying! :D

A rabbit in a tailcoat.

Aw, adorable. ^-^

Do you want him (or her) to be mysterious?

Art Suggestions

Of course! There is no other type of rabbit in a tailcoat!

Sorry that it's small. ;-;

I think I've mentioned this before, but you really should just upload these to imgur or something. Uploading pics to CYS is really just for pfps. The file size restrictions are tiny and also when you use the RTE to attach them it breaks the thread this way.

Oh. 

OK. :c

Wait, then how does Hatter's Sketchbook hold up MHD's pictures?

Art Suggestions

Well, you see, it's all due to this one code called "<Img src='URL'>". This fun little guy displays the image remotely while it is being hosted on another site.

For example, if I put in the code:
<img src="https://i.kym-cdn.com/entries/icons/original/000/019/324/dogmeat.jpg">
The following image is displayed:
 

Alternatively, if you are currently using the Rich Text Editor (which I assume you are if you're using CYS to host pictures), You can just click on the lil landscape photo thing right above the "Size" option and paste the link to the image in there.

I hope that this helps you understand.

I'm a little confused, but I'll probably get it sooner or later.

You can "link" photos that are on another website, to this one.

So we can see it here, but in reality, it's "on" the other website.

If you right click one of her pictures, you can 'Copy Image Location' and then then paste it somewhere to see that the URL points to an Imgur address. Like this one here: https://i.imgur.com/xJrwNpX.png That's the site where her pictures are uploaded and stored, and the code Tim showed you is just a way to tell the forum to show them to us here. It was a very cute bunny though.

Thank you! :3

Also, I right-clicked Sir Jackson, but I only had these options.

"Open Image into New Tab, Save Image As..., Copy Image, Copy Image Adress, and Inspect"

Art Suggestions

Copy Image Address and Copy Image Location mean the same thing, your browser just labels that option slightly differently.

Could you possibly upload it to imgur or something for a better resolution? I would like to use it as my pfp on another forum if you don't mind :)

Art Suggestions

OK! How do you get a full resolution image? I logged on to Imgur and posted the Scary Duck image, but how do I get a full resolution image?

Art Suggestions

2 months ago
AL, you did the same thing again. You can't upload these to the site, they'll do that to the thread every time and the file size restrictions screw with the image quality.

If you put the picture on imgur, then give us THAT link. You're using the RTE, all you have to do is click the image icon.

Art Suggestions

I copied the image address. This is what I got.

A Scary Duck

Did I do it?

... Did you intend to make it that small?

Art Suggestions

I wanted it to be small to save up a little space, but it might be too small.

If you're putting it on imgur, you don't have to worry about file size.

Do you have a larger, clearer version on your computer still? The original before you shrank it down and it got all pixelly and artifacted? That's what Crvs was asking for.

Anyway, your a good artist, but you really need to get this uploading and posting thing down so that you can share the with people properly.

Art Suggestions

But, I thought I was a shitty artist.

Can a YT video help me?

Art Suggestions

I'm not sure what you can still be confused about. You draw the picture, you post the picture to imgur or something, and you show the picture here. There's no resizing or anything needed.

Art Suggestions

I'm getting the hang of it! >.>

But, I do wonder how to get the full resolution image.

Art Suggestions

2 months ago

The image should be at full resolution when you've finished drawing. There shouldn't be a problem. Unless, y'know, you're resizing them after you've finished drawing.

Art Suggestions

2 months ago

The full res image is literally just the finished product of your drawing after you drew it. You upload that drawing to imgur or a similar file sharing site and send the link, or embed the link however that works on these forums.

Pimped out baby yoda?

Art Suggestions

I have a question. What does "pimped" mean?

Art Suggestions

Just some chains and sunglasses work. Maybe add his cane, but more fancy? Honestly, that's a good question. Go crazy with it, A.L!

Art Suggestions

Crazy is my middle name! Along with wholesome.

Baby Yoda might come out like shit, but the accessories will be decent. Is that OK?

Art Suggestions

In this context, a certain garish style of dressing and unnecessary bling.





You can also pimp out a car.

Pimped Out Baby Yoda

I forgot to put my signature in there! D:

Just pretend it's there. ;-;

Art Suggestions

... What is this... "webp" extension...? Instead of having something like "BabyYoda.jpg" or "BabyYoda.png" it's something like "BabyYoda.webp".

A few questions:

Are you using a computer, or a tablet, or a phone or something to draw these?

What app do you use to draw these?

If you can, can you walk me through the process of uploading them?

(sorry if I sound mean, just trying to help)

Art Suggestions

2 months ago

Don't worry, I sound mean sometimes, too. ;-;

1. I'm using a computer (BUT WANT A TABLET SO BAD)

2. puddlebunni suggested Medibang so I tried it. Medibang is now the program I use.

So, in Medibang, we draw the drawing (XD) then press "Save As...". You can convert the file into a JPG, PNG, and a GIF. I usually convert the drawing into a PNG. I then upload the PNG to Imgur.

Art Suggestions

Art Suggestions

It's nothing to do with your pc, it's the way you're uploading the picture to the forum. Webp is basically a smaller version of PNG which is why it's so pixelated. Try looking up "convert webp to png/jpg" in google and use one of the converters.

By using the image source tag Tim explained to you in such a manner that you merely need to copy and paste it with the image URL plugged in (or simply click the image icon in the case of using the RTE...) look what I can do! This is really cute and much better than I could do. You figured out linking to the imgur albums, so I think you can learn displaying images on the forum as your next step.

Art Suggestions

Aw, thank you! :3

I do think I am doing a pretty good job with drawing digitally! ^-^

I still am having trouble posting the image onto the forum so it can be displayed.

Can you or Tim (or anyone) help me with that?

Art Suggestions

Aw, I think you did great (especially considering what I threw at you and that you're tabletless). You won't get any criticisms from me, but I hope you've been able to pinpoint the parts you yourself aren't happy with. Knowing is half the battle, after all!

Your art is not bad, you know. Certainly beyond what I would call beginners' work.
I also have a request:

A regular-looking person, but with a prosthetic arm that looks homemade, as if constructed out of spare parts and scrap. However advanced the arm is or how talented the person is in designing the arm is up to you--I am excited to see how you interpret this!

You don't have to have to set it to Share to Community unless for some reason you WANT to let an army of anonymous jerkasses on imgur vote on it. By default it's not public when you upload things.

Art Suggestions

I'm willing to bet the dislikes are from people who searched for Baby Yoda art--y'know, those Wholesome 100 Cute Heartwarming Baby Yoda wanting nuggies kind of people. I wouldn't take that individual picture's ratings seriously, considering the people who care enough to look up Baby Yoda pictures.
