Default Man PK is dead huh?

I have noticed that very few art critiques are done and even lounge is dark.

Does seem like it. I wonder if there's another forum PKers go to now.

Yeah, kinda. I feel like I should be blaming myself; I've been working on a contribution for the Writer's Forum for so long (and inconsistently) that I'm not even sure if I want to put it up until I have a hundred pages done.

And don't even get me started on the art.

I usually upload stuff on my sketchbook every week. Mostly. Recently i got sidelined by Dead island riptides weekend offer last week and clocked in 10 hours of it. But a more depressing bug bear is that i'm trying to study for microsoft exams and frankly i'm floundering and i'm getting depressed that its getting no where and i'm seeing no progression with my life.

I don't really do any updates on the critques pages as namely for 2 reasons:

1. I know the problems of my work and i just have keep practicing.
2. By the time i finish the sketch theres really no reason to get it. Whats done is done and can't be changed. Best to log for history.


I should do something more adventurous but frankly i don't have that practice yet. Part of the problem is that i really don't want to spend hours on a single lost cause of a art piece and simply move on. Problem with working quickly with numerous attempts i don't learn anything with each attempt! Damn if you do, damned if you don't.....

All i can do is just practice and keep at it not much to say beyond that really.

Been occupied with stuff myself. Haven't been drawing anything particularly cool in ages thus not feeling like contributing either.

Me too! I have 2 weeks until my wedding is over, then I'll have free time again. I have a sketch exchange to do. Also, going to start digging into a series of drawings I've been thinking about for awhile. Gonna go back to traditional.

We need new members, but all these kids are too busy playing call of duty and whacking their weenus.

I think a good number of us lurk here still. But like you say many have migrated away, either for a more populous site, or life / profession kicking in.
I'm active on Deviantart, but I lurk here pretty much every day.
After overloading on artwork as a job I usually don't feel like handing out critiques, and most of my work is client stuff so I can't really apply others critiques to them, hence I don't post much of either.

Last week I met Hunterkiller and Flashies in person pretty much by chance. Started by having a conversation at a convention without even knowing who each other were. Pretty funny.

I lurk, but an amazing piece of sexy cat cyborg knight is coming up today or maybe tomorrow. Yay. Other than that. I love pk and dont go to any other art forum, so just post up anything you doodle guys. Even though you know whats wrong with it, apart from crits, there is always the curiosity factor. So what are you guys up to?

I spend more time practicing and doing random sketching on my sketch pad on week nights for the last 30 minutes. Sadly with no scanner and the digital camera dead, i haven't really done anything. Most of it is garbage anyway. I should concentrate on a particular subject or an aspect of the body and develop my skills.

i demand you post it immediately! there hasn't been another thread in that forum for months and it's a waste of electricity.

I lurk all the time and post stuff in my sketchbook; most of the stuff I do for schoolwork I don't really feel like putting up for critique.

As for another forum... no, not really. I do post stuff on dA as a concession to (kind of) drum up a little bit of publicity, but I dislike the whole pat-on-the-back fanart culture that thrives on dA.

I lurk constantly and post rarely.
Haven't done any art in months, been focusing on some other stuff.

I lurk as well. I've been doing some things, but slacking on posting them here.

I think we should all get into the habit of giving crits more. It'll make it seem more alive even if people don't have anything new to show.

November is here soon. Maybe NaNoWriMo will liven things up a bit.

That is very true. I'm going to have to try to stick to something smaller this time, though; what was supposed to be my novel last year is still being worked on.

Forum membership is also closed off to new comers unless they email mods.


I think this needs to end. We'll get spammed with bots though, but I think it's better than the slow attrition of lack of ease of access to this place.

The Battletech forums have a system where your first few posts don't go online until a mod clears them, and you may have to type a captcha too. Means pretty much zero spammers make it through, though it's still an involved process for the mods.
