Why people grow out hobbies like games, anime, metal, etc after a certain age? Anonymous 5408[Reply]

Silly question out of curiosity, and no, I don't care about what others think neither I intend to stop liking what I like just because society thinks I should.

I was just wondering a few days ago. I'm 29 years old, older than most miners I believe and I still like the very same things I used to when I was a teen. None of my highschool friends, who liked the very same things as me, like it anymore. I don't think it has anything to do with time as I probably work harder than most of them and hang out just as much (even though that's not that much when compared to the average person). Also now they're into other media (mostly western Netflix TV shows) that require lots of time too.

So, I was just wondering. Are anime, games, metal and things like this actually made for kids? Why do people stop liking them after/during college. About metal I can understand, most of your angst is gone, but the others still might be fun. Do you think it might have something to do with how society sees people with the so called "manchild" hobbies?

I don't think OP is talking about all-time classics like Black Sabbath or Judas Priest when she mentioned Metal; she's clearly talking about edgy stuff.

I'd Black, Death, and Folk Metal are mostly for angry teens. Overall, anything heavier and more violent than Venom can be fun to listen sometimes, but is cringe af. I also think Power metal is for teens even If it's not that heavy and agressive because it is a very cringe genre with limited musical qualities.

I do listen to all these genres sometimes, but I don't think it's a secret that most people abandom them during college. Hell, "grow out of metal" is one of the oldest /mu/ memes.

>I don't think OP is talking about all-time classics like Black Sabbath or Judas Priest when she mentioned Metal; she's clearly talking about edgy stuff.
That still doesn't make much sense. "Edgy" is a highly arbitrary and kind of vague term that people throw at anything remotely challenging the conventional idea of music.
>I'd Black, Death, and Folk Metal are mostly for angry teens.
I don't get it. I mean it did start as a youth subculture, but the amount of grown men that are listening to these genres as of today contradicts that. I guess cannibal corpse/mayhem etc. can fall into this category, but as some people posted above, they don't even cover the wide umbrella of sub- and subsubgenres(is that a word?) that sound pretty different from each other. Metal isn't memed for having 150 specific subgenres for no reason.
>Overall, anything heavier and more violent than Venom can be fun to listen sometimes, but is cringe af. I also think Power metal is for teens even If it's not that heavy and agressive because it is a very cringe genre with limited musical qualities.
It can only be as cringe as the person who listens to it is. Which isn't uncommon, but doesn't stop music from being good. What's heavier and more violent than Venom? Electric Wizard? Windhand? Cathedral? It's pretty subjective, for example all the Venom fans I've met were the edgiest, most pretentious teens I've met, because they take their music too seriously since it's a "classic".
>I do listen to all these genres sometimes, but I don't think it's a secret that most people abandom them during college. Hell, "grow out of metal" is one of the oldest /mu/ memes.
Abandon is a strong word. I think most people are just tired, not of the music but the life in general. There's less time and energy to spend on your favorite hobbies, and since metal is very passion oriented it becomes noticeable when they're not as passionate anymore. I've seen a lot of adult or even old metalheads who didn't look like it at all because it's not about the image for them anymore.

I think there's a few kinds of people that grow out of hobbies. There's type one who are only really in the hobby to fit in and when they don't need it any more they drop it. Type two who are just depressed and can't find enjoyment from it anymore. Type three who basically burn themselves out on a certain hobby by going all out on it and basically only having that as a hobby, so as a solution they go in the extreme other direction and drop it. Finally there's type four where they've become so picky nothing new satisfies them any more and they've done the old stuff to death.

What do you guys think of Marhot Robbie and the upcoming Barbie movie?

When I was younger I really liked that movie Life Sized (the one with the girl who tried to necromancy her mum back to life with a hairbrush but accidentally brings her doll to life). I was kinda okay with those iconic but also kind of awful animated Barbie movies, y'know like Barbie princess school and all that jazz.

I'm actually looking foward to it. So far it hasn't had any weird Twitterfag backlash either.

I wonder if it'll be a kids film

This sounds kind of like my boyfriend. Although I pierced his ear personally and he grew out his hair for me. He was a virgin when we met and he's a bit autistic. If only he hated porn.

My 2D husbando would look pretty different though. I insist on glasses. And maybe kind of dominant.

Fun Online Games Anonymous 19056[Reply]

When I was younger i used to play a lot of online games such as pixie hollow, a build abear workshop game. howrse, webkinz etc.

i have found that most of these games are now gone or changed a lot.

i know there is still girls go games which is fun, but i am looking more for the kind of game you make an account on and can play for a long time.

does anyone have any reccomendations?
(my favorite game currently is moviestarplanet but im looking for more games to play)

I played daily up until about 2007 and now I just check in every few years. It's unrecognizable to me, firstly because of the cash shop and dress up functions, but now all the flash functions are dead too. I think they're converting them to html5 but who knows how long that will take.

If you want Neopets but the modern Neopets experience is too broken, try Subeta. It's well programmed and aims to a pg13 audience so you can say words like grape and basement

does anyone have any tips for making more lively poses/forms? Whenever I draw poses from references, they always come out stiff, and I am just trying to understand how I can make them almost as lively as how you would see figures in cartoons or comics.

Do a lot of gesture drawing.
It means that you need to practice how to capture a pose (or more accurately, movement) with simple lines, instead of drawing the whole figure. Basically, the first step in figure drawing.

You want to find yourself a live model session somewhere in your city and practice drawing those poses in less than 2 minutes, sometimes less than 30 seconds. I won't say it's impossible to do from photographs, but the two major issues with that are
1. It's super easy to overindulge yourself as far as time is concerned, you want to force yourself to go fucking fast.
2. Photographs "flatten" the image of the human form for you. If you actually physically see a model pose for you in real life, you are forced to learn how to capture the general essence as any shifts in perspective will instantly change the subject matter, even a few inches.

this makes a lot of sense, one of my art classes had a live model, and I improved greatly during that time. We were timed too, w eonly had 30 sec to a minute to draw a pose. But now I have felt that my progress is slower or just not as constructive as before… Ty for the advice I greatly appreciate it, I will have to try implementing that again in some form

Inktober Thread Anonymous 1267[Reply]

Hey anons!

Inktober is right around the corner, and I am very excited to do it.

I don't know if this is a good idea, but I thought that it would be cool to share our inktober art with fellow miners, telling which materials we are using and stuff like that.

If you don't want to post your art every single day, you could post just the ones you think are the best, but it would be cool to post it every single day for the challenge. Also I think it would be neat to see possible evolutions, idk.

Anyway, if anyone wants to participate, feel free to namefag and/or link to your previous post!

YouTube and art Anonymous 3556[Reply]

I'd like to talk about art youtubers. I don't like to draw [anymore], but I like watching others draw and maybe talk in the background. Thing is youtube and the art community is full of annoying, unoriginal personalities with shitty, tumblr tier art styles. I'm having a hard time finding someone relaxing to watch.

So I've come to ask you if you know any interesting art youtubers, traditional and digital. Last year, I found LavenderTowne who's a really sweet girl with a quiet voice and I like her even though I'm not a fan of her cartoony art style. If you like cute drawings, people with relaxing voices, and art about character design, I'd recommend LavenderTowne.

how do i begin creating art like photo related? pop-surrealism/lowbrow. im so inspired and want to get good at it but as someone who is not the best with art or painting im not sure where to begin in terms of tutorials or help for this specific type of art.

Anonymous 17353

1C2A129A-998E-4ABA…

I’m not an artist but I’ll try and answer this. If you look at famous surrealist artists, such as Dalí, they all started painting very conventionally before getting more creative and developing a style. What this means is that you need to master the basics before you try something like this.

I asked on a forum ages ago about starting to learn to draw and the pic related books were recommended to me as good for absolute beginners. I haven’t gotten around to using any of them yet, but one of them shows a student’s before and after pictures and there is a huge difference so I do think this might be helpful for you to start with. I don’t have the books at hand so I’m not sure which one has the before and after but they all seem worth trying.

Once you’ve mastered that, what artists usually do is copying other people’s work they like until they are comfortable doing that style. Then gradually modifying things until they are able to create something completely new and create their own unique style.

Anonymous 17356

I love lowbrow art like this, I've been drawing for a good decade now but have sort of all but dropped it past few years, some things happened and I've fallen in a depression hole. Anyways, first thing is to git gud at the basics, you don't need to be perfect at everything. Like, pick the subject you want to portray, if it's humans, you can kind of get away with knowing less about backgrounds, enviornments, animals etc. And use references for when you want to draw these things. But the main subject, you need to practice that the most. In different mediums, see what you like. You could go on /ic/ for looking at what books are the most essential, loomis etc. There are some good youtubers as well. I love this sort of 'whimsical' almost art style too but I'm really saddened by how much pedos rule the lowbrow art scene.

Anonymous 21436

>>17352
like what >>17353 said, learn some basics, you don't have to be a Da Vinci, but just try to understand and practice them. At the same time, look for artists that you want to emanate and try to imitate their key features. Just learn and have fun! You will find your way

Most of it is written by men anyhow. Men who repressed that they're actually decent romantics and not the cringe M/f dynamic that gets constantly shilled as ""normal"". But they write about two girls because they feel it would be cringe if they wrote one of them as the guy he imagines himself being in that relationship.

We live in a society that has pushed out normal cute things into being "gay".

I always thought yuri and other lesbian stuff done by guys was just done by very insecure men that can't imagine a penis in a make-believe relationship because that'd be "gay", either that or some moids just like those sorta pairings, kinda like some women like yaoi better.

>cringe M/f dynamic that gets constantly shilled as ""normal""

Aren't straight relationships like… 96% of all relationships? By definition they are normal, since they are the standard.

Anonymous 21392

>>21262
Because normal stuff is usually smut with shit writing on top of it in order to call it "romance." Whereas lesbian fiction is full-on romance with little to no smut; the latter being better called erotica bits within a romance writing if it has thar little smut.

To add, I don't know if, at this point, you maybe have realized you were lesbian. But in case you have not, maybe you should read a good "clean romance" piece sometime before thinking that you are fully gay for not liking hetero stuff.
Though, at the end of the day, who am I to literally diagnose you with the gay? Nobody IRL can really do that but yourself, and yourself only.
