The USSR had a lot of these ebin documents. Soviet officials awarded these pieces of paper to distinguished soldiers and workers. How is this thing called in English?
I have some interesting examples in my collection, this is rare type of document awarded by Ukrainian OSOAVIAKHIM ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DOSAAF ) for occupying the second place in the second republican team competition of Ukrainian skydivers in 1939 or 1940 year. OSOAVIAKHIM often awarded people with its documents, but I hadn't seen such type of blue paper with airplanes and paratroopers before.

They were worthless, it was simply a bonus whose task was improving the mood and productivity of worker. Of course in the modern world these things are collectible and worth money.
Pic related, somebody liked the look of the document and he put it in the frame. This is a very rare certificate awarded together with early versions of the order of the Red Banner, the document is most probably issued in the 20s or late 10s, you can notice the fasces at the top of the document.

Jesus Christ, why you are so butthurt about this? First of all, the USSR wasn't the first state to reward its people with useless items. Secondly, the USSR wasn't a wealthy state in the first place and the union provided citizens with what the economy could allow. It's not like a bunch of ebil Soviet officials sat in luxurious mansions and deliberately deprived workers of their goods.

Contributing. It is the board of a stupid monopoly ripoff game, where you actually have to break existing monopoles. Don't ask me how this worked, it was all about suing (=building houses) the companies (=the streets), and then if you sued them enough their monopole was broken. I owned it as a kid and always wondered why no one wanted to play with me. Now I know: The game sucks (and also I am Ernst, and thus boring as fuck).

Adding these two, these are the covers of a double album from one of my favourite bands, Therion, and I really like the artwork of those. Though it is not really a double album, they were sold separately, but they were released at the same date I think. It's a symphonic metal band, but it's hard to add a label to them, since they quite often changed their style, not always to the delight of their fans. But those two albums are as solid as it gets.

>A fat bottom is no shape for a girl

What caused the 1970s to have such poor taste? One of the few things I learnt in school about Early Modern Britain was how women even back then would put special cloth padding on their derrière that lusty men would poke at with their sword in a playful fashion. It's a sign of fertility after all.

I mean I get that this is women's fashion advice so what do they know but still, this is an issue you either strongly agree with or at worst even a homo would be ambivalent over.
No. 1816
It could be that men became less manly and therefore started prefering small asses and women with a child-like body (included shaving) because they're afraid of taking responsibility and impregnating a woman.
Another possibility would be that it came up after crimanlization of hebephilia when a lot of men suddenly got forced to suppress their natural desires. As far as I know underaged prostitutes were pretty normal back in the days.

nice projection. underage girls is not and can not be natural desires, for one simple reason: it is negatively selected by the fact that it causes serious birth complications and before modern medicine there were basically two options for teenage mothers: child dying for being prematurely born, or mother dying for child being bigger than her pelvis.
No. 1819
Cute little dream world you live in.
Please read up on a topic before posting about it.
It was normal for humanity up until the 20th century, the notion that hebephilia might somehow be not natural is a moralistic construction of psychiatry.
For start you might like to read the wikipedia page on history of child prostitution. It says that in Europe about half of all prostitutes were minors. We don't even need to talk about greeks, hindus, islam etc.
It was normal for nearly anyone at any time, do you think that so many years of human history people had un-natural desires and suddenly, by wonder became healthy and lost those desires in the 20th century?

Before modern medicine this option wasn't a big problem because you'd go and make another baby.
Also, when a girl starts to bleed, she's technically ready for pregnancy.
Here's law of VIII century, Ecloga of Leo III, 2. Titel, article 2.1 (page 94 of PDF file) - it forbids marrying before 13 years for girls and before 15 years for boys.

So you're saying that men are more manly now than in the 1970s. Interesting hypothesis but it doesn't make sense in light of broader trends starting around the 1950s.

>For start you might like to read the wikipedia page on history of child prostitution. It says that in Europe about half of all prostitutes were minors.

Fuck off with the history abuse, pedo. The steady rise in the age of consent was directly driven by horror over the practice of child prostitutes becoming exposed* just as child labour was legislated against following outrage over their conditions in industrial society. We can even see this in living memory with the resultant public reaction when the sexual revolution went too far.

You can talk about how sexy you find children all you want but it's not going to stop the rest of the community dousing you petrol and setting you fire for being the filthy child molester that you are.

*In Britain this was driven by daring MPs personally going into whorehouses and investigating whether they could get access to children in the houses care. This tradition being upheld even today by our brave politicians testing immigrant rent-boys and the rigorous sampling of cocaine quality

The only thing I said is that it was normal, widely accepted and natural. That's not abusing history, it is de facto history. You can close your eyes to this as much as you want, it won't change.
I didn't talk about it being right or wrong, that's not of my interest. All you do is is crying how wrong it is and setting yourself up as some kind of insincere moral authority, just because it is easy to do so having the tail wind of the rabble.

However at this point it is clear that you're not in your right mind and get all emotional over historical facts so I will condone your petty phantasies of violence. Feeble and rotten minds will always jump on the first occasion to start a witch hunt, even more in times where the likes of you are forbidden to stir up hatred against ethnic or religious minorities.

I hate when people on imageboards throw a fit about monthly donations for artists on Patreon.
The most popular and rich artists on the web are those who are the most corrupt, who are ready to manipulate the public or sell porn, yet even they're quite poor by Western standarts. Kuvshinov (horrible guy with almost zero creativity), the top Russian artist drawing cute semirealistic anime girls 24/7, earns $10 000 a month. Kuvshinov is very popular artist among normies and his girls are often used as reaction pictures on Western & Russian imageboards. Sakimichan, a weeb girl and the most popular artist on DeviantArt (being a female artist always adds you additional points and attracts attention from horny audience) is drawing shitty erotic pictures, I remember that she earned less than $30 000 per month a year ago, she was the richest artist on Patreon.

These people are top 0,001% of artists in the web, they spent many years earning reputation, skills and fans, they have shitty ethics and they're attentionwhores ready to do almost everything if that would bring them more money, but this "elite" isn't rich at all, and some of them will not be considered even middle class in Western countries. Nobody is bitching about many other professions where top 1% earn much more.

Don't forget that this is just voluntary donations and he receives pay for actual work too. He is one of the few artists who don't hide their income on Patreon, majority of those greedy kikes hide it from fans because the people donate more money when they don't know how rich's the artist. Btw, Kuvshinov posted on Russian imageboards in 2010, he has a gf, works for Japanese companies and now lives in Tokyo, he is the idol of many Russian weebs.

Thank you,Ernst.

Here is a panel from The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, a comic book adaptation with art by Skottie Young, and colors by Jean-Francois Beaulieu. The loose line-work was a big enough challenge, but trying to get Ernstwurf's coloring to match the other characters had me pulling my hair out. Anyway, here is my edit showing Ernstwurf's influence on the scarecrow, tin-man, and lion.

I really like swastikas, too bad nazis ruined the symbol. It is so weird when I think about it. Back in school when we were children it was a common joke to draw a Hakenkreuz in your friends notebook, I never engaged in that but sometimes got some of those. There are multiple interesting things about this I will elaborate. First, while the boys drew swastikas the girls used to spam their friends notebooks or exercise sheets with hairy dicks which was weirder to me than the swastika. However both actions have a taboo to them which probably made them so sweet for my classmates. When someone drew a swastika what usually happened was that the one whose notebook got swastika'd would finish it to make it look like a window, a box with a cross in it which broke the spell even though everyone knew it was a swastika once. I bet that a lot of the pleasure came from the swastika being verboten. The whole act of forbidding a symbol is so incredibly stupid and revolving to me and even if it's done for reasons of antifascism it's ridiculous too because you give the symbol so much power. I don't even know if these feel is understandable for non-germans even though I know that swastikas are forbidden in some other countries.

In whole west world swastica is no-no symbol. It already get so many meme power, that all fear it - even thought every year WWII are more and more far from us in time. However I always thought that swastika is not powerfull enough, we with friends more liked Wolfenstein symbol, black sun and kolovrat because how epin they look and because all that memes about PARANORMAL ENERGY and Tule and Anenerbe with secret bases, UFOs etc.

First two photos is abominations that called among people "Kerenki", from Alexander Kerensky republican goverment that was from February 1917 to November 1917, in short time of Russian Republic. They needed a lot monies, but previous TSAR monies was too expensive to print and they needed them like right now, so they started print this on very tiny peaces of paper based on consular stamps. This monies has no even basic protection and even has no serial numbers on them. There written that they "equal to normal bank note"

Second example on 3 and 4 photo is first commie monies. Young sovdepia needed monies, but had no opportunity to print them or create it's own design. So they used prints that was prepeared back then by Republican goverment. So you may see monies written on pre-reformed russian with Republican Eagle on it.

>starting with Alexander II
sorry it was mistype. I wanted to type Alexander III What I mean is that on each ballot was it's own ruler
For example on 500 roubels was Peter I

Classic and most famous soviet monies, that most well known for all people who ever seen soviet banknotes. Designed and set in procution in 1961 they was used thought all time to death of soviet union, althought at last days of soviet union there was created a little bit of new designs. On first and second picture there are two example of classic rouble and one example of 1991 variant. On 1991 somebody written something... I know who but it's a secret :D

On third and fourth pic is 3 roubels, 5 roubels and 5 roubels of 1991. On them printed different views on parts of moscow Kremlin complex, as you can see. Ulike coins where each year year it show year of stamp, banknotes show only year of extablishing of design. So on every banknote that was printed from 1961 to 1991 you will see "1961" number.

Funny that on 1961 rouble on back "One roubel" was written on all soviet union languages. On 1991 is just "О Д И Н" :D Well, this place in 1991 have some protection parts and so one as I know but still. All this monies was used untill official end in before you can exchange them in 31 december of 1993

25 and 10 roubels, both is 1961 variant. Funny, but you can still see that banknotes at least some of them, to 1961 keeped colors of it's imperial variants. 3 one is green, five is blue, ten is red. But instead of faces of different emperors, on that ones we see bust of one particular man that we all most probably well know. 25 roubels in 60s and even in 70s was very very big monies.

Funny video from 60s. About "current generation will live in communism" this is another famous meme, about communism in 1980, promesis of times of growing economy during Chruschow times But more important from here "without hesitation foreign representatives exchange one american dollar on 65 sovier kopeikas". This video become a mme on boards when in 2015 in one day Roubel almost hit 100 roubels for 1 dollar mark

Bonus - post soviet 1992-2000 belorussian roubels. I have 5 and 3 from this series, sadly. They was called "зайчики" because of Hare drawed on 1 roubel. From 50 kopeek to 100 roubels there was drawed different kinds of animals.

Also, on previous belorussian monies you may see old belorussian coat of arms that almost identical one to Lithuania that also known as Vytis (probably this is same word as Russian Vityaz'). You will rpobably understand why if you know history of Great Principaty of Lithuania. Current coat of arms of belorussia is edited soviet one, same as the flag.

On third and fourth picture there are 1993 banknotes that was used untill 1995. About 1993 money reform was said famous "Wanted do as best, but it turned out as always" that nowdays are pretty synonimus of everything about russia basicly. Mine 100, 200 and 500 roubels are not in best condition, as you see, around some of them someone drawed by a pen (me when was little kid ;__;)

And this phrase rinted on bill and this is most important part of actual banknote! Imagine this tier of inflation and poor money printing of monies based on nothing.
It is funny that Imperial monies was "backed by gold" but early soviet ones "backed by property of the Republic" whatever this propery means (clearly not gold :--DDD)
However I can understand commies, in 1920-23 they thought that communist world revolution be very soon, and all monies in world will be removed anyway so who cares

It often occurs to me that all the sites 4kanker likes to hate are probably objectively the much better sites than imageboards, deviantart being one of them. Even their fashion and music boards are on such a level of complete garbage it amazes me. I think their invasion seriously dragged down the quality of everything everywhere else they went, including ruining reddit when they invaded and assimilated it in like 2010. Speaking of which reddit is still probably a better site than imageboards just more decentralized. I often completely forget there is not just garbage on the internet. There is actually good and interesting music on soundcloud too. The problem is all these places are more decentralized and harder for me to navigate. Oh and even tumblr has some really good artistic...pages? blogs? I'm not sure what the subreddit or subforum or board equivalent word is for the site

You have good eyes. The line width is slightly different due to my particular process of copying from the original Batman comic. To do that, I have the drawing program 'extract' the lines, but not the color. I repeat this several times and combine multiple layers(each layer is a little different) to get the lines as close to the original as I can. Between version 2 and version 3, I added one more layer of lines, which I felt brought them closer to the original art. The reason I extract the lines and not the color, is to allow me to change or remove details from the original. In addition, repainting the whole thing means any items I add will blend in, and not stand out too much. That's my hope anyway. The picture is a screenshot showing some of the layers I was working with.

I know what you mean now-thestyle wasn't the problem, but just the line width, which was significantly thinner than the original Batman lines. When I thought you were talking about the art style I completely redrew Ernstwurf-making him a little more human, with defined limbs and such-closer to Batman. Well, no harm done since I enjoyed drawing it again, and it gave me a chance to practice my coloring.

This new drawing was my attempt to place Ernstwurf in a photo realistic setting. The trick to that is using an actual photograph. It's kind of cheating, but I did have to do a fair amount of manipulation to make the composition work.

I fixed it. The blue window layer I had in the original was only at only 15% transparency over Ernstwurf(pretty much invisible)and I can see now it didn't really put him outside. I tried a few different levels, and wound up increasing that to 45%. The result was good at showing Ernstwurf was behind the window, but washed out his shading-so I had to redo that part as well. While I was at it I reduced the man's color layer by 25% so he wouldn't stand out too much now that Ernstwurf was a bit lighter. I also fixed a few other details I didn't notice. Overall, the changes made a huge difference, and I'm glad you made the suggestion.

A personal favourite of mine would be to see the Ernstwurf in a Caravaggio like The Sick Bacchus or Cupid as catamite (Amor Vincet Omnia). But I admit that it would be damn difficult to match that style.

Thank you. You're right about the challenge in editting a Caravaggio. I couldn't remove any painted elements from the composition, and would have to find a way to create Ernstwurf in oils while matching the lighting. I guess that gives me something to aim for, but tbh right now I'm just hoping I can properly match a frame from Tom & Jerry.

Caravaggio Ernstwurf. That idea is stuck in my head now.
>probably the only person here who would like to so a caravaggian Ernstwurf
Even if that were true it's still worth doing. Heck, just the artistic challenge alone intrigues me. Can I do it? I don't know, but if it goes really bad I'll just announce my failure and bury the results deep in an encrypted partition. I've been playing around with Infinite Painter, and I think it does a good job simulating oil paints. As long as I start with a detailed underdrawing and then build up the layers of color I should be able to produce something decent. I'll still be limited to painting over a Caravaggio, but that should be okay as long as I can come up with a proper idea and pose for Ernstwurf.

This was a trend that started way before the elections. The elections just pushed it even more overboard.

That's how they originally came here and first they settled on /n/. Then /n/ got closed and turned into trains for some reason and moot opened /new/. Then stormfaggots proceeded to completely and utterly trash that board, so moot killed it and /r9k/ which is what spawned the first great 4kanker shitposter exodus onto KC. This was the origin of a lot of really awful boards and a lot of shitposting. Then moot made a containment board called /pol/ because they began shitting up every other board and the other boards cried out "moot, please do something against this faggotry" and so moot created /pol/, and it was not good. Then these faggots proceeded to spam every board on every site anyway even more furiously until even ernstchan and krautchan were completely destroyed by these fucking faggots.

The moral of the story is that raids always bring in site ruining cancer.

Do you genuinely not know any of this basic history? It was around the time /b/ was raiding Hal Turner. Even many years later they still were raiding people like Ghost
4chan itself was never right wing. Back in that thread you can see how stormtards were too stupid to realize /b/ culture wasn't some unironic cringefest of trailer dweller meth heads. It was edgy for the sake of being edgy and contrarian. The problem is it was around this time 4kanker got absolutely flooded with literal children and that combined with stormtards started perverting the actually funny board culture into cancerous self seriousness. That thread is also from a much later raid. The original stormfront raids were a couple years before iirc.
No. 8135
Yeah I know all that and I could even agree with most of what you said but no way did stormfront provide any influx of newfags. Likely the other way around, that kids found out about stormfront via 4chan. That's way more likely scenario than vice versa if you ask me.

4chan was surely never "right wing" but they surely were racist and it was one of the few places online you could post pretty much anything without getting banned, so obviously the racist minded people who'd get banned anywhere else eventually found their way to 4chan. I don't think stormfront had anything to do with that.
No. 8143
It was never done in a self serious and unfunny manner like poltards. That shit came in with the stormtards, who only found out about 4chan because of the raids (just like everyone and their grandma including Gaians, Habbo, Subeta, pick anyone). Most of us already knew about them because it was the retarded Nazi site back in the day. Everyone knew about it for the same reason they knew about pro-ana communities or whatever else.
No. 8150
Yeah, but I still don't think there was an influx of people coming in from stormfront. They were a bunch of middle aged boomers and not even that numerous. Meanwhile 4chan was just a rebellious website full of teenagers spamming edgy shit like racism, pedophilia and gore that attracted a much different type of people than places like stormfront.

This whole stormfront hysteria reminds me of jonneweb and the finnish imageboards. Even to this day people say how all the kids came from jonneweb even though it was and still is a dead site. Meanwhile all those websites that collect funny pictures, 9gag style, were huge promoters of both finnish chans and 4chan. It's quite obvious that 99% of new users came from those sites yet people still blame it on "jonneweb" even though it was always irrelevant. Same with stormfront.

I think the imageboard people just matured and some of them started to take their teenage edginess more seriously and that's why you got pol and stuff like that. The actual influence of stormfront is minimal. 4chan and /pol/ likely influenced stormfront way more than stormfront ever influenced 4chan.

Yeah but we're talking about imageboards a decade ago.

Still, especially now assuming that stormfront has some influence on 4chan and not vice versa is just stupid. 4chan is huge and influential while stormfront is small and irrelevant, always has been. Some people at one point even claimed that some antifas were coming to KC from some refleft site because antifa argie kept recruiting them. I'd be surprised if a single person from such a site came to KC and stayed. Even if that was the case their voice would be minimal and the actual leftists on KC would likely have never even been to this one gommie forum.

My point here is that stormfront absolutely did not turn 4chan into an evil bigoted racist website. The whole phenomenon was homebrew. Even without the existence of stormfront the same would've happened.

I finally finished a Caravaggio Ernstwurf edit. At your suggestion, I decided to work with Amor Vincit Omnia, and then to keep my own lines from looking too cartoonish I modeled Ernstwurf after an angel in another Caravaggio painting- The Martyrdom of St. Matthew. The biggest challenge in this one was Ernstwurf's face. Since I couldn't use any lines to define his features, I spent a lot of time blending colors and adding new layers whenever I got a shadow just right. I wound up with 29 visible layers in the final version and the file size exceeded 10 megabytes. Obviously I reduced it, the upload here is a 50% reduction.
No. 8548
Oh that is just brilliant.

The only thing I can put my finger on that could be improved is the contrast. Caravaggios paintings, just like Rembrandt, have extreme contrast in luminocity. Try to add some harsher shadows maybe and do a histogram spreading (the brightest elements become brighter and the darkest darker but the mid stays mostly the same).

Thank you, Ernst. I have a narrow range of things I'm actually good at, and drawing has always been one of them. I've only worked on paper until recently, but now that I'm trying my hand at digital art I'm glad my effort has contributed to board quality. And I like the other artist posters too.
I appreciate the input. Contrast. Once you mentioned it I could see that's what was missing. To adjust Ernstwurf, while leaving Caravaggio's work untouched, I had to export him on a transparent layer, then reimport the newly contrasted lines. The Snapseed App let me make adjustments using the Curves tool-Contrast, exposure, brightness and such all adjusted at once. But since it couldn't export the results as a transparent layer I had to make the adjustments manually using the Android image editter. It took a while doing some trial and error, but I finally got it about right-dark, but not too dark.

I don't know what software it is you are using, but you should really look into using Krita at some point. Best software for digital painting I've used. The task you describe there is trivial since you can apply any filter (or stack of filters) to single layers but you can also group layers and then apply filters to the group etc.

I just did a quick search and found a video that demonstrates the usage of layers in Krita [1] pretty well. It's by David Revoy, who creates the amazing open source comic Pepper & Carrot; he also has a longer video about creating an entire page of a comic [2] to show off workflow and technique.

Krita is not using GTK but Qt. It's GIMP that uses GTK (GTK Image Manipulation Program).
Not sure if you confuse Krita with GIMP or if you mix up GTK and Qt.

The interface of Krita changed significantly since version 3.0, though, so it's worth a look.
And gimp will get a new interface in the next version that is a 100% re-write, the beta is pretty amazing tbh. GIMP always was the ugly baby of the open source world because it had a good core but an unusable shell around it - but because it was the only thing that people recommended as alternative to Photoshop you had all those people coming from Adobe UIs, take one look at gimp and run away, never to be seen again. This is changing now, but they'll have to fight their legacy of having a shitty UI for so long.

>I don't know what software it is you are using, but you should really look into using Krita
I'm using Medibang Paint on an Android tablet. It's a good program, but after watching those videos it clearly isn't on the same level as Krita. I downloaded that this morning onto my PC, but I can only use a mouse with it for now. The pen I draw with is only for the Android tablet(it's the Noris digital pencil). And I also just discovered this morning that the Medibang App for Windows actually has more options and tools than the Android version. I can't really draw with it except with a mouse, but if I work on the tablet and export the mdp file then I can use things like the curves tool to make adjustments easier.
Thank you.

The original is a 20mb .mdp file. I'll attach that as a zip file, but I don't know if any programs other than Medibang can open it. I guess if you do open it that means you'll be able to see my lines up close. Feel free to fix my mistakes.

I have both wacom bamboo pen & touch and a large a4 sized chinese tablet.

The chinese tablet has MUCH better hardware. The DPI is higher, it feels better to draw on a large surface (wrist pain ain't no joke). It costs the same, but the problem is driver support. I was unfortunate enough to buy a non huion chinese tablet, so struggled with driver problems before they rolled out half decent ones.

Huion is much better on that. The other problem is that I bought mine before the battery less pen technology patent expired, so mine has a battery, which makes it a bit heavy. But replacing a duracel aa battery once in a couple months is not a big problem.

What do you guys think about a Jünger-related banner? "Ernstchan - On the Marble Cliffs"
The novel is mainly about literary personas of him and his brother living their lifes as hermits studying plants and having serious discussions while the world around them gets overrun by evil and decadence. First picrel would be nice but maybe too much referencing a single person instead of just the novel, so maybe you'd have some other fitting image.

That sounds like it would make a great banner. If you want to emphasise the subject of the On the Marble Cliffs novella, then I think your second picture would work better.

Here is my first edit with Erna. I went back to the Peanuts booth for this one. I thought I could do a more complete edit-using better coloring and a different composition. I pulled the parts from a few different Peanuts comics and modeled Erna after Schroeder. This was 99% finished for days, but every time I looked at it I would decide to put in more details. Some drawings are like that, where I'm looking for that small line that says done. In this case the last line was Ernstwurf's eyes. I'm not sure I've ever drawn him with eyeballs before, but in this case he looks a hundred times better with them.

But that's how glitch art is done.

Using data filtering algorithms is considered unkvilt because at that point you might as well use an image editor that does the same thing, but with a GUI.

Now that I think about it, glitch art is a rather shallow medium. Apart from the bitmap data itself, there's only a couple of fields in your typical image format that you can manipulate, such as phase, color space, etc.

You could cut up and edit it differently. Glitch art is not so random as it seems tbh. But whatever
I did not consider that charly a master piece nor most other glitch art. I stumbled across it by Florian Hecker or some other person, it is not clear who actually made glitch stuff at Documenta which goes beyond the simple colorful and bright images you will find on a tumblr or reddit mostly

In Audacity it's shown as wave form and you manipulate it with audio effects, is it the same as photoshop?
No. 9611
Depends on the definition of what "glitch art" is.
If the term refers to the process, as in, causing glitches, then only editing the file headers should count, since editing the bitmap data is essentially the same as drawing on the image.

If it refers to the "aesthetic" of the output, then the same effect can be accomplished with any image editor, as what they do is take the bitmap data and run it through some algorithm, same as doing it in audacity, only that the algorithms are different (nothing stops you from writing a photoshop filter that does the same thing, though).

I think the whole concept is contrived tbqh.
No. 9614
> I think the whole concept is contrived tbqh.

You don't need to invest much tome to get results, but still it's interesting to create patterns thru algorithms that you can or cannot control?

I mean the audio effects have different parameters that can be changed and I don't really understand their effects on the image and it also depends on the bitmap info I think.
Since I know what these effects and their parameters mean I feel I can control it a bit, not just gna random parameter value and badom it's there. The Hertz value in different effects e.g. wet/dry and different depths effect the image a bit like in audio but still it's not the same and the results are not the same every time.

There are available glitch art programs (closed though) which do the work for you.
It's possible to make a list of glitch art effects and how to cause them.
Palette shift or pixel shift are done in raw formats like BMP or PPM.
You can cause color change in formats with a palette in the file, like GIF (see example).

But you can do similar stuff with using GIMP/photoshop function and filters. I don't understand where the "art" is in these kind of pics.

thank you for the BMP tip, now it's much easier to do silly stuff

Some text replacements again

oh no what doned
Lossless formats are hardest to mess up with because, well, they are lossless. If something is lost, image viewer refuses to work with the image.
I think I would dig into JPG format to discover some interesting things, but I'd sure want to end with GIF format.

Speaking of JPEGs:
Messing around after bytes FF DA gives a similar effect of warping pixel blocks (data in JPG is stored in 8x8 blocks). I can't say more on this topic, study is to be done.

No, the pic from mine you quoted was a BMP raw edit, I simply converted it back to PNG in order to be able to post it here.

I wanted to post another BMP raw edit but I broke the file

C:\nananana\zombie_II__jpg.bmp : Decode error !

Invalid or unsupported BMP file.

You broke the file seriously, otherwise it couldn't become 200 x 125 from 1200 x 750

There is no art. It's art to the same degree as Macintosh plus is (lmao distorting an old song and playing it slower).

But it's fun to change every 5 to a 9 and get funny shit.

Continuing on GIFs:
LZW by design restricts any possibilities of breaking images.
In brief, what LZW is?
Imagine that you start numbering every pair of values, like, "Co" makes pair No. 1, "on" makes pair No. 2. You number them further, later you meet the pair you already numbered, like "ti" in "possibilities", so you decide to make a pair No. XX, consisting of "ti" and "e". And so on, and so on. Later you just write down numbers of pairs instead of writing down contents of the pairs.
You can't suddenly make a pair No. 5 after a pair No. 3. You must define pair previous pair, pair No. 4 first.
That's how it works in GIF.
And then you copypaste gibber in the file. Will it work? Most possibly, no, it can have numbers of pairs which were to be defined further, but you put them earlier than they could appear, and decoder just refuses to decode the file. Therefore, making "glitch art" from GIFs is inherently difficult.
Hope somebody sees the message in the systemkontra'd thread.

ah no sorry, it's that I simply copied the thumbnail (you know, right click -> copy image -> open Irfanview -> paste)

images: 1st is input -> reduce palette and dimensions in order not to get a behemoth -> bmp -> change w for 11 -> png
