Greetings everyone, my name is Numberz. This is my personal blog where I post my thoughts as well as share my YouTube content and Drawings. I create a varity of content covering Open Source Software, ranging from the topics about Fediverse Software to Open Source games. If you're interested in these topics please consider subscribing to me!

As for my drawings. I'm still learning but if you have any constructive feedback I'd love to hear about it. Especially if you know how to draw in Krita.

I hope you enjoy what you see my friends ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿป

I literally can't handle how much you all support me. First my co-worker and now all of you too? Thank you... You've all made this awful and horrible day so much more bearable for me โ€‹:aqua_happy:โ€‹

Okay that was a landslide victory for the drawing stream... wow... I actually didn't think this idea would have been so popular! โ€‹:neocat_dizzy:โ€‹โ€‹:neocat_laugh:โ€‹

I'll need just a little bit of time to get my camera setup going but I think we can make this happen pretty quickly โ€‹:ablobcatrainbow:โ€‹

Mtn dew isn't making me awake anymore. it's just making the tired feel nasty

@mir I used this trick when I used to have to do an overnight watch. Take an object and place it in your hand, something heavy but not dangerous. Then hold it over your foot. If you fall asleep it will drop from your hand and on your foot which should wake you back up.

Is this annoy and painful? Yes. Does it work? Also yes.

Sharkey, to random

Clarification on some discourse being brought up

  1. Why is the joinsharkey.org site not available

A: the site was very buggy and wasn't of much help and we currently don't have the resources (as in developers) to work on a new one, as we like to focus on Sharkey itself not marketing, we have started redirecting the domain to the documentation and have fixed any links in the docs.

  1. Sharkey funding for server hosting issues is used to run a minecraft server

A: We did have hosting issues but those were not responsible for the website being down. Sharkey is a project of TransFem.org, that means it runs on the same servers as TransFem.org, we did have a funding campaign for collecting funds to use for hosting TransFem.org this was reposted on the Sharkey account as Sharkey is a part of TransFem.org, it was also stated that said money would be used for hosting TransFem.org and it was never said it would solely be used for Sharkey, with that said yes there is a Minecraft server running on the same servers as Sharkey is, that being the TransFem.org servers which said Minecraft server is for. just like the TransFem.social fedi instance that runs on the same servers because its part of TransFem.org

  1. The lead is just playing minecraft instead of working on the project

A: this is partially false, the project lead isn't much involved in actual development and more in sysadmin and management and has recently taken a bit of a break for mental health reasons and started playing on the modded minecraft server, that said they are still helping out when they are needed and this has no effect on Sharkey whatsoever

please keep in mind we are just a bunch of hobbyists working on this software, we do this for free, in our own time, the money we make with donations goes to hosting costs of the entire TransFem.org

I'm kind of up against a deadline. I was supposed to make a video yesterday for this Saturday but I blew it off because I was pissed off and decided to take a nap. I'll get it done tonight but I really should start working on my videos more consistently โ€‹:neocat_laugh_sweat:โ€‹

Trying to think outside the box. Anyone want me to do a video about my first 30 drawings and my retrospective on my first month of learning how to draw?

I think it might be inspiring to look at my best and worst drawings and talk about my learning experience along the way.

@ChloeCat It never hurts to have alts. A lot of servers are hosted by very generous, talented but individual developers. Anything can happen to them at any time and there isn't a team around the clock that can fix those issues, having multiple alts on multiple servers is a very good idea.

I also suggest reguarlly backing up your Fediverse data into a drive offline just incase the instance your on gets nuked off the face of the earth randomly (cough, cough hetzner)

I keep this hung up at my desk at work. I feel like some of my friends need to see this. Myself included. Weโ€™ve got this. We can overcome anything together.

So I've been putting off my long form videos for about two weeks now waiting for my new avatar set to be ready. Absolutely worth the wait but now I've run out of excuses to put off making any more videos โ€‹:neocat_laugh_sweat:โ€‹

New long form content videos coming this Saturday and that will be my standard release day for that content going forward.

If I can't fall back asleep I might do some drawing. I found a few interesting pictures online earlier that looked really difficult and fun to draw.

I picked the first one for more hand and more detailed face practice and the 2nd one to work on overall body shape and figures.

No matter what I pick there is a good chance it will look nothing like either of these when I'm finished โ€‹:neocat_laugh_sweat:โ€‹

@ChloeCat @ielenia @NotThatDeep It's also a lot different than the microwaves I had growing up. The one I used to have was a beast. It had the old school turn dial nobs and I think it could straight up cook a decently sized turkey โ€‹:neocat_laugh_sweat:โ€‹

NumbersCanBeFun,
@NumbersCanBeFun@shonk.social avatar

@ChloeCat @ielenia @NotThatDeep Okay, I couldn't find the exact one I grew up with but this is VERY similar. Even had the wood trim on it. Yeah, let's just good by temp indefinitely with a single switch. That's probably safe โ€‹:neocat_googly:โ€‹

I feel the need to say this because a couple folks cite me as an inspiration to start drawing and I just heard a way of phrasing it that helped me articulate it:

"Draw every day" is bad art advice.

It's bad because it's incomplete. It's possible to draw on a consistent schedule that is not daily and improve far faster than someone who is drawing every day. The thing that's missing is the need to put together a study plan to consciously and intentionally address the areas and concepts in which you are wanting to improve.

NumbersCanBeFun,
@NumbersCanBeFun@shonk.social avatar

@LianSirenia I'm still just doing this for fun. I like having something where I can turn on music and tune everything out for a few hours. Honestly, I really needed something like this in my life.

I have zero expectations in anything other some feedback on how I can do it better next time since I'm going to put the effort in either way.

@LianSirenia I've been there before with the piano. It's really hard to learn piano and playing it every day poorly also pisses your neighbors off a lot โ€‹:neocat_laugh_sweat:โ€‹
