Hello Ernsts, once again I have an Idea for a banner. Do you know the holy mountain Athos? A few hours ago I wondered if we ever had a female visitor on this page and I sincerely can't remember or imagine that this could have had happened. Also in comparison to KC /int/ there's barely any pornographic lecherousness here. So on the mountain Athos there is the Monastery of Simonos, a place where no women are allowed but only men can visit the reclusive christian monks and their island. Wouldn't this be a nice ironical simile about our board?

I have found this photograph (ot's from wikipedia) of the top of the Athos with this cross on it which could be used as the "t" in Ernstchan. It seems though like it would be extremely hard to put this into perspective with the missing clouds and sky on the right side. We could use ancient/modern greek as a font and it would look extra ebin.

I wanted to do something with Dragonball featuring Erna, and figured it was a good opportunity to also try out an Ernst comic with sequential images. The smaller first panel was an easy edit, but main picture was the result of piecing together parts from three different panels. If you were curious, the boy in the comic is saying Discussion(in Japanese). To balance the composition I needed an additional visual element, and I thought that would go well with the Manga theme.

No it's literally what being an incredibly stupid person is like. The joke is that the Pentagon is a geometric shape like the Star of David and is controlled by Jews. That's literally the entirety of the joke. It's like people saying "Obama = Bin Laden!" It's just the way incredibly stupid people think.

A more sensible thing would be to point out that war is kind of a Satanic or demonic type of enterprise and note that a pentagon is the inside of a pentagon/pentagram. However, what these types of people are too fucking stupid to realize is this is what old forts were shaped like.

Actually I still am probably trying to read more into it than the author intended.

Once again we need artists' help.
We will allow users to hide thumbnails of images they post, or saying simpler, spoiler images.
Hidden (spoilered) images will have their own thumbnails.
Images to be used as thumbnails for hidden images must have 200x200 resolution. Such images should have the word "spoiler". Desirable, though not necessary requirement: the image should be related to Ernstchan.
Desirable number of thumbnails for spoiler images is five, though one will be enough as well.

I made a couple of banners based on your concept. I tried using the picture of the cross on top of Mount Athos as the central image, but that seemed to put the focus on the Christian faith, rather than on the monastic lifestyle. As a compromise, I decided to just use the cross as the T in Ernstchan, as you suggested, and lay that over a photo of the monestary itself. I hope I captured the spirit of your idea.
Those are amazing.

It's possible to use as many pictures as Ernsts provide, so if number of images exceeds five, it won't be bad.
Now two images with Erna and two images with Ernst will be good as well. I highly appreciate your desire to draw one more, you're welcome to do so.

Posting my favorite video game cover art

1.Ulima 5 - in my opinion, very powerfull art. Fallen friend, not really ready to battle awatar and shadowlords that cover world of Britannia in darkness. Something... very unsafe, very cold and creepy in this, awesomely show atmosphere of actual game.
2.Eye of Beholder 3 - I like SSI ADnD games artwork, most often it is brilliant but this one is something that I absoluetly love. Like design of this undead guys, absolutetly epin thing that show power of classic west roleplaying and fantasy stuff style.
3.Indiana Johnes and the Fate of Atlantis is one of the best Quest/Adventure game ever created. I absoluetly love this cover art - for many people fate of atlantis is true 4th indiana johnes movie, and cover in classic movie style clearly showing it.
4.Not a masterpice, but MM8 cover art is something very unique for year of 2000. Same as game kinda was outdated by time of it's release, and this hand darwn cover art looks like something from roleplaying games of late 80s or from some old ADnD2nd edition rulebook. It's very very rare when you see something like this in modern games and books.

1.Ads for Ultima 2 and 1 with full art that then will appear on Ultima 2 box. I like it - Ultima 2 was indeed very strage game and it's atmosphere I perfectly associate with this art. Something very misty, something in shadows of swamps with a bit of crazy science fiction.
2.Full art from cover of Might and magic 6 Mandate of heaven in biggest resolution I can find. Another example of most west classic fantasy roleplaying style, indeed this is something that for me is absolute opposite of japanise anime style stuff.
3.Original warcraft cover. Clearly shows how feel and style of early warcraft games was different. Realistic medival knight is opposite to mongol-like green dark ork with very dry skin
4.Cover of original release of Ultima 7 The black Gate. You can find covers with little infor on them nowdays, but back then it was something very fresh - instead of classic WRPG art with knight, dragon or something like that you just have absoluetly black box of game with name and small amount of screenshots on back side of box.

No actually. Is it tactical strategy like something between total war and paradox games? I not ultra huge fan of those - I want to get into them one day but I only played mixes of classic rts and tbs elements like wh40k dawn of war addons and star wars empire at war/forces of corruption.

It is funny that if you google "best video game cover art" it be shitty lists like that https://www.creativebloq.com/video-games/15-best-video-game-cover-artwork-11135451 which include or currently popular or all time popular console classic games.

When I count as masterpices such things as original wasteland for example. This cover art is truley somethibg special - I don't know how to describe it but it by one picture show more post apocalyptic atmosphere than some movies. I like stalker art, which one more like a cheap photo comilation but still there some mystery and atmosphere combines that clearly show best sides of what you can expect in actual game. Or this famous art from dune 2 cover. Indeed dune 2 game is it's own thing that not that much connected with book or lynch movie, but this art show that this game can offer something interesting and new but with same kind of spirit of classic science fiction. And dungeon master - timless classic that show basicly everything about classic roleplaying, lol.

Different pices of cover art from old star wars Expanded Univese comic Shadows of the Empire. While SotE is not the best comic series and story project overall, it indeed feel like actual movie between episodes 5 and 6 with many key elements important for plot of actual 6th movie - like how Bobba Fett delivered solo to jabba, how luke builded his new lightsaber, where Liea get her Ubeze bounty hunter costume etc. And indded cover art for this comic very cinematograpgic in mine opinion.

Some artwork from old X-wing comic series. While it has sometimes kinda not best separate plots, overall it was a great adventure. Set in early post-endor, it feels like very good adventure TV series. I imagine if something like that was on telelvision back in 80s - it was one of the most popular and beloved television series of all. Sadly, nowdays we will never get things with such atmosphere and narrative on big television anymore.

I love cover art. Here is a site I like to browse-particularly the section with old Pulp magazines.

>The Great Depression created a tremendous demand for escapism, one quickly filled by an explosion of pulp magazines. Named for the cheap paper they were printed on, pulps were intended to be read quickly and then discarded. Artists typically painted one cover a week for an average of $50 a painting. It meant giving up creative control and artistic integrity, but $50 was decent money in a time when employment was as fictional as the covers they painted. "They figured they were going to go on beyond this," said art dealer Steve Kennedy, "This was just to cover for rent and food during the depression. Little did they realize, 90% of them, this is what they'd be remembered for."

I hate filoni 3d clone wars. It illogical, childish, contradict with other EU and suffer from all problems of long running TV series of old formant. And Ahsoka is most cringy marry sue character ever.

I like Ventress in 2003 Tarrtacovsky cartoon - when she appears and dies since her only purpose is be dead from hand of anakin so anakin can make new step in a dark side. In 2003 CW she not a minor background meme villian from mourning cartoon, he said like 3-4 lines in whole cartoon and most awesome moment hat show her as character - her last seconds before she died, when she relised that she has no real hate, she is not sith... but Anakin HAVE HATE. It feel very sad for her.
https://youtu.be/3VB_vjVxcic?t=321 (video timed)
And also anakin killed her with same type of hate as Luke almost fall in episode 6.

>How can you tell it's a girl?

Yes I watched and it shit. It pretend to be adult and "serious" but it was set of childish and illogical series that not care about universe with same repeating clown cartoon villians, plots and overall concepts. I tried rewatch it year or two ago but it aas too painfully cringy and I don't seen any clone wars here - it was just terrible low budget teenager drama. Existance of this is insult to name of "clone wars".

This new resistance is basicly bottom in all therms of how deep disney can actually fall - disney always surprise me with more and more trashy products every year.

Yeah, this is why from new year I will try to start collecting PC BIG BOX of games that I love. I see some on them on Ebay, but they cost too much and with shipping from USA even more, but I think I will give myself a birthsday present and buy at least some of them.
Here are some of my favorite SSI games artwork. First one is fuull art from Pool of Radiance. If anybody know where to find others without other cover elements, just as art - I'd very like to find those

Same here. I find it motivating to see other artists at work-particularly if they are leaning over a desk, surrounded by pinned up references, bottles of ink and cups full of various brushes and pencils. I've always wanted a full studio set-up like that.

Probably because too close to home. All I see is stereotype of average Slavic girl. One nice thing is I often can't even remember what should depress me.

Added some color.
The fundamental and quite difficult to accept nature of visual art is that the more detailed you make your work, the more you lose in compositional clarity. Once you start adding color and rendering, you lose some of that sense of "epicness". Simply because there is limited bandwidth of meaning a visual piece can convey, so if you only have a black and white sketch, such sketch conveys 100% of the compositional idea, but once you start adding detail, the compositional strength weakens to make room for color information, detail, etc. Mastery of visual arts is in minimizing damage to each of those elements: composition, detail, color, squeezing most of the informational bandwidth of a painting. It is very difficult to accept that the more you work on a piece, the less impressive it looks, but it is a sacrifice that every artist must make, and one that it took me too long to accept. Everything has its price, and "finishing" a work has its price as well: a price of expressiveness. A finished work can never look as dynamic/expressive as a sketch, but without finishing it, you will never make it relevant in the first place.
Learning humility was my greatest hurdle as an artist.

I agree.
It all comes to limited attention span. I am quite shit at drawing, since I spent most of my time in art school learning the fundamentals of painting, and my drawing is sorely lacking. So I expended most of my concentration trying to get the anime style right and couldn't properly allocate resources on such important stuff like: composition, color, character portrayal, line fluidity, shading, etc., etc.

But I must say, doing this was quite therapeutic. I have changed my art philosophy to "do, then think". I used to be really idealistic about my art, thinking that I either have to make a masterpiece, or I have failed and am worthless. Now I've found meaning and excitement in doing something just for the fun of it. And although it came out flawed, I still can appreciate my own work just for the fact that I did it, even though it's clunky and imperfect.

Here's an obfuscated picture of me, so you can know what I look like during my lows, when I'm too depressed to shave or cut my hair :-DDDDD. I am quite ashamed of my extra weight, since it reflects poorly on my virtue. I've been losing weight, but it sure takes a while to lose 30+ kilograms of fat.

I rarely draw anime, but when I do, it has to be moe.

I mean, what's the point of indulging in the most escapist of mediums if you can't make it as cute and wholesome as possible? Anime is for cuteness and love, not edgyness and angst. Even I can see that, even though I don't like anime. There's enough angst in the real world, let's keep anime out of it.

To answer the last, it is the hope that I shall attain every bit of jaded cynicism, pessimism, bitterness, and misanthropic outlook of a 77 year old Vonnegut by the time I am 40. And what then? Well so we shall see.

Definitely know that one. My prime number obsession is the biggest culprit for me. Nobody ever appreciates the aesthetics of arranging things in abstracted forms of primes, preferably prime factors of 3 for maximum aesthetic value. It'd be less of a pain if people didn't seemingly go out of their way to destroy prime beauty in the world though. If I had a dollar for every time I've organised things into primes and then had some NT add another piece and mess it up, I'd be a very wealthy man.

Another attempt to merge Ernstchan and Dragonball. My biggest challenge here was the composition. I had a decent concept-Erna riding with Goku and passing a hitchhiking Ernstwurf, but the original had the camera shot pulled too far back. That took focus off of Erna, and also left Ernstwurf in a kind of no-man's land in the middle of the panel. After cropping most of it away, moving a few a lot of things around, and tilting the whole thing 4 degrees I finally found an arrangement that works.

That happens a lot when I'm drawing too. It's hard to push forward and finish something when you can see all of the imperfections that are kind of baked into the picture and can't be fixed. At least with digital painting there aren't material costs to consider.

I'm impressed by your ability to so efficiently diagnosis the original artist's errors (and my inability to do so explains why I draw so slowly).

Thanks for the quick response, much appreciated.

I have decided to work on this again, maybe turn it into a spoiler template. Not sure what to put in her hand other than a gun as expected. Maybe there's some Erna lore that the mods could share, regarding an appropriate item to put in her hand.

Although I feel this is becoming a polished turd, there's many things about this image that I'm unhappy with, namely the hair, which I couldn't get right. And many other details that would seem like nitpicking, but boy is that keen eye on compositional errors a double edged sword. I can't help but look at this and cringe. I was really determined to see this one drawing through to the end to counter my bad habit of never finishing anything I start, but such a commitment on a piece I don't like has only made me procrastinate on it.

Maybe it IS sometimes better to scrap works and start over.

Although, there's one thing I feel satisfied with, and that is emphasizing the chin so it evokes the same expression as that of Arnold on the original cover. Oh and the redrawn font came out ok I guess.

I've been thinking of starting an Ernstchan drawing club, either as a general or something like a telegram group. I'm leaning towards the latter because the immediacy of being in a chat room with someone else, in real time, puts a pressure of expectation that tends to motivate. After all, you'd look like a fool if you joined a dedicated drawing chatroom and didn't draw (t. doer of such)

Is it just blue-eyed nostalgia on my behalf or has the Europe (especially Germany) of yesterday actually been a much more beatiful place?
I mean, can anyone in his right mind visit a german town, look at old photochromes and say: yes, those concrete bunkers without any form and style and towers of metal and glass are way more beautiful?

Architects have mastered the art to argue for some concrete bricks without facade because of le beauty of le material.
I like to insinuate that they just argue for such simple architecture because nobody of them would be either able to construct nor to build some Jugendstil stuff or similar things. They get mad :DDDD

Luckily my city still looks like 100 years ago, but especially this fact makes it's inhabitants very mad when modern buildings are constructed close to popular land marks.

It's simply economic reasons.
Everything has to be cheap, so people make do with what they have, and highlighting the aesthetics of the material is one of the best ways to do it.

Not everyone can afford a hand crafted mechanical watch, so they buy cheap quarts watches in minimalist style, and still look fashionable wearing them. Aesthetic follows utility. Same with architecture.

I still posit that building another Sistine chapel in modern days could bankrupt a country.

i for one like old style buildings e.g. jugenstil and modern bauhaus inspired architecture equally, if done well by architects and craftsmen, that is. either can look awesome or terrible. personally i tend to prefer nice clean and efficient structures over square, bulky, symmetric structures with lots of ornaments, embellishments and whatnot.

In general, I think pre-WW1 europe have beautifull style. For example, I can't stand modern British places with mix of classic and new style that actually very meh, but old england is awesome. All this mix of 16-19 centuries towns with early "new" tech like trains and cars... there is something about it. When even ads was not something ugly plastic things, but hand drawed with soul.

Of cource, late XIX early XX centuries was still shitty age, with not very high quality of life for majority of people, with many problems and many bad things. But sometimes I want just extract all best and most awesome things from this times, did it as VR-matrix like simulation and never leave it.

>people make do with what they have, and highlighting the aesthetics of the material is one of the best ways to do it.
This describes the Brutalists:
>Immediately after World War II, large swaths of Europe lay in ruins. Concrete, which is both sturdy and cheap, swiftly became the material of choice for the apartment blocks and municipal buildings meant to accommodate a ballooning, often displaced population. Eventually, the aesthetic of raw concrete structures became known as brutalist, after the French béton brut, or “exposed concrete.”

Buildings were to be made from concrete and the architects, unable to hide it, seemed to embrace it. While a lot of construction ended up looking like poured concrete slabs, I find some of them are actually beautiful and have a strange otherworldly quality.

Were they already called that back when being built? They do not strike me as exceptionally tall telling by the pictures. But that might be just because there have been so many much bigger buildings since then.

>Were they already called that back when being built?
I honestly never thought about when the term came into use, even when I was referring to the buildings as such. I looked into it, and according to Britannica:
>The name first came into use during the 1880s, shortly after the first skyscrapers were built, in the United States. The development of skyscrapers came as a result of the coincidence of several technological and social developments. The term skyscraper originally applied to buildings of 10 to 20 stories
Further research using Google Books Ngram Veiwer led me to these pages from a British magazine published in 1905. In addition to presenting photographic examples of early skyscrapers, the author of the article demonstrates a strong bias against this new American construction:
>Lest our photographs should not show up sufficiently this monstrosity of modern America, we would direct the attention of the unwary reader to the fact that the proportion of the buildings in New York robs the skyscraper of half its horrors.

>They do not strike me as exceptionally tall telling by the pictures
That 2nd picture is a bit deceiving. It shows the top of the Woolworth building, which reaches a height of 241m(792 feet).

Thank you for the information. I somewhat felt very stupid for asking that question. There is, or for very long was, a strong opposition against building skyscrapers here in German cities, Frankfurt or "Mainhattan" being one of the few exceptions to that rule. To my knowledge the biggest argument against them was that no building should be allowed to be taller than the church towers.
I quite vividly remember seeing a city with many skyscrapers for the first time as a kid. I got very dizzy from walking down the street and looking up the whole time, imagining those huge piles of stone might just topple over burying me under all that rubble. I guess that British journalist had the same feeling.

Or the rest of the allies firebombing the shit out of you and others in retaliation for German shenanigans like the V bombings. God only knows how much has been lost in just that war, just in Dresden. I am curious what art was destroyed there or if there even was a list of all the precious artifacts in that city. And while I also don't know what was lost in Stalingrad I do know that poor Poland got bombed into so much rubble that a lot of Warsaw doesn't exist anymore and that most of that city is new along with a few restoration projects iirc.

I'm butthurt about all the modernist art that was burned in germany.

It's interesting to think that both fascism and socialism were once hip, progressive ideologies for young edgy people. But then backwards bydlo came into power, abolished modernist art and installed soc realism.

It's also quite interesting how it still looks "modern", despite being invented a hundred years ago. Compare 2000s web design to 2010+ web design (which was inspired by avant garde and shit), the former looks dated, the latter looks hip and modern.

Did they also do the Metropolis poster, or was that just the common style of the time? I am really uneducated regarding art. The last time I went to an art museum was when they had a big exhibition on Dali and his peers in my city, and I only found two or three objects among hundreds that I really liked without now being able to recall any names, even though I looked them up back then and tried to keep them in mind.

Another thing these posters, (or should I better call them paintings or artwork?), remind me of are the Sowjet or Warsaw Pact advertisements for American movies. I had more of these. But I can't find them at the moment.

interesting topic. i too find it disappointing that the development of european modern arts took a serious nosedive after almost a complete century of quick evolution, however i don't blame "bydlo" for that. common folk not involved in creating arts just consumes the arts, regardless of who's in power. i'd argue that blaming average joe would be like blaming simple office clerks for the outcome of a decision made by the corporation's executive board. so the average person's taste in arts wasn't the source, but a symptom. as was what got presented in galleries/museums, presented on stage or published in different media back then.
i blame overly authoritarian politicians and opportunist artists of the time, but primarily politicians. when narrow-minded control freaks get into power they want to control literally everything - and want to get rid of everything that doesn't appeal to them at first sight. in the worst case they would employ terror tacticts and violence. so they force their respective political narratives, ideologies and of course personal preferences onto artists, who then either voluntarily or involuntarily commit. please note that i am aware that under more decentralised political conditions the arts aren't free of political influence either. they are not and might be subject to "soft power" of different interests. which does give more room to experimentation and variance though.

>Italians were pretty based and stayed based, though.
i don't want to belittle the italians at all, but during the late 19th/early to mid 20th century they created futurism and that was basically it. all other significant innovations in arts and architecture originated either in france, germany/austria/switzerland, russia and the usa (they built the first skyscrapers and commieblocks) back then.

I wouldn't say they're the same style. Deco is all about excess, optimism and enthusiasm for the modern world which enables it. I'm not an art school person so maybe I'm wrong, but I'd say the Metropolis poster is more modernist with the shared geometric motifs being the shared impact of cubism which had huge influences on basically every branch of early 20th century modern art/architecture.

By bydlo I mean specifically bydlo philistines in the ruling class.

Interesting phenomenon in modernity is the disappearance of the aristocrat class. You think all those polymath scientists from back then were somehow special, they just didn't have to wage.

Nowadays, everyone has to wage, and if not, then pursue someone's interests (state/privately funded academia). Aristocratic scientists just had to live off their family money and pursue science on their own terms.
Genius is an aristocratic concept and actual geniuses were a peculiar phenomenon exclusive to aristocratic cultures
nobility gave you creative license
To b urself. Now everybody is socially interdependent. Genius is a product of prerogative or a sense of self providence
Thats why it's inherently aristocratic
That's why so many intellectuals in the past seemed like polymath superhumans. They weren't expected to specialize so much, and intellectual work comes with a defined social role. The professional class cannot be creative and undefined while also submitting to the career systems and publication systems, and all the fornalisms

Y'know, the way that that's actually done has always bothered the shit out of me, possibly moreso now that I can also actually understand the mindframe of doing LSD specifically because while you can plainly see that sort of calm, detached, intellectualized approach to things (or maybe I'm projecting?) that the actual subject matter is still quite horrid. You can recognize at once that a kitty cat is, by its most very basic and fundamental nature, an actually kind of malevolent little thing, and that it has only been by barest dint of human interference that it is anything else than a truly demonic creature. I think this just amplifies the sense of horror, and I mean real, actual horror not just fear, by making not just any ordinary object but even a comforting one at once appear suddenly foreign and threatening, but so much so not out of some kind of delusion but much, much worse, the sudden realization that it was actually always this extremely malevolent, hostile, and threatening thing you brought into your home and simply were too blissfully ignorant to have previously noticed.
