    Hello again, my fellow anime fans and welcome to this years Spring AF art contest - A Reverse Isekai Challenge! This fun contest is all about bringing your favorite anime characters into your world, instead of you going into theirs. With this in mind, all you have to do is pick a character that you wouldn't normally see in our modern clothes or perhaps a school uniform, and draw them in one instead of their usual outfit. Lets see what we can come up with! If you'd like to participate, do so by replying to this thread with your entry no later than April 15th. This will be a community voted event. The community will vote 1 winning entry to be featured for the remainder of Spring in the art block. 2020 Spring Art Contest Participation badges will be awarded for each participant and can be showcased with the rest of your awards and trophies on your profile. Feel free to discuss this contest and your decision making process in this thread as well. Lets all have fun~

    I find the 2019-nCoV response by the population at large, the media, and the politicians to be pretty bizarre, frankly. The fact of the matter is that the reported death rate for people aged 10-50 is 0.2%, and the actual death rate is probably far lower, since a lot of people with the virus seem to have mild, or even no symptoms and thus go unreported. (In fact, that's one of the problems in trying to contain the virus.. people with no symptoms can nevertheless still infect other people.) For MOST people, certainly anyone between 10 and 50 years old, the worst that can happen is you feel like shit for a few days, you stay in bed, drink your fluids and watch TV, then you get well. That's it. To be sure, there' a serious problem in that there's no vaccine yet. Even the regular flu would be pretty serious without a vaccine. Even if there were a vaccine, this virus is (slightly) worse than the usual flu in terms of symptoms and its contagiousness. If you have very young children or are older then there is definitely some cause for concern. I'm 55. My mom is pushing 80. Even for the normal flu we do tend to get our yearly vaccination. Without a vaccine the major problem is this older/younger cohort of people, large numbers of whom will die without a vaccine. Especially if they all get sick at once and modern medical services get overwhelmed. For instance, there's ~60,000 ICU bays in US hospitals. About 20,000 of those are already in use, mainly supporting people who have fallen ill with the regular flu. If we have 1/3rd of our resources already taken up by a disease for which there IS a vaccine, what's going to happen when the one for which we DON'T have one gets out of control? THAT is the real problem here. Unfortunately the press is all about revving people up these days, not informing people. Our "leaders" too have their heads up their behinds. So we now have people in the general population with little to no actual science or medical knowledge being directed by inane Presidental tweets or listening to uninformed talking heads in the media, and then panicking over shortages of toilet paper. I hate to imagine what they're going to do when the body count of old people dying from the disease starts climbing. We are truly the descendants of the B-shippers.

    Been working on this for @madeyalook . Did a rough sketch with the expression she wanted. But I scrapped it and got a bigger sheet. Added some details, made some lines sharper, added a personal pose. Prepped some watercolors for the painting process. Then I thought, why don't I make this larger? The sheets I'm using are already pretty sizeable. Each around fifteen or sixteen inches in length. It actually turned out to be another rough sketch for the sake of size. Given that I really thought about this person having gone through surgery. They deserve something better. So, after work today I picked up a poster board. It's 42 x 38. I'll also be using a mix of paints and spray paints for more Ertegun-ish aesthetics. That should be fun!

    Did a little sketchy-sketch using the oll tablet, since I still wanna get used to using it :3 I'm having fun just making experimental-chill peices, all just utilising different brushes and things I've never used before... Came out looking alright, I think!

    These all look amazing. PLEASE PLEASE keep working at it. Everyone starts somewhere and has the ability to improve our find their own style. I can tell you've been putting a lot of focus on understanding dimensions in face proportions, hair and are working at finding your style when drawing eyes. Keep at it and you'll find it will pay off in the long run ^^

    Thank you to everyone for the welcome! Yes, this could provide a distraction from quarantine but I really hope to stay on here longer too! Thanks for the advice on the username change, part of me didn't think this username would be free which is why I don't know if I want to stick to it, I had the expectation of being able to make a username including this word! Maybe I'm kind of feeling it now. AND YES. Salsa dip and tortilla chips are the way to go, but I'm loving nacho cheese a lot these days. As for my favourite anime, I really can't choose! I look forward to being here and joining in the discussions!

    Yesterday, I started talking to a family member about some personal issues that were leading to a lot of stress for them. We got around to improvement suggestions and it seemed to alleviate some of their worries. Especially when it came to addressing better time management habits. Putting things aside to get more rest, balancing hobbies and pre-planning in a manner of priority. The situation got me thinking, there's a lot of people out there that can benefit from a community they visit on a regular basis. That way advice doesn't feel like a fleeting article that's been randomly stumbled upon. Here, you can always come back and communicate your experiences or progress and growth. You can share anything in your life that you're wanting to improve or are in the stages of improving. You can comment about identity, dreams, physical/mental health, employment, potential, talents/abilities, diet and exercise, personality. What works/worked for you, what doesn't. How things have improved or how they haven't. Minor stresses to problematic issues. Perhaps a bit of advice or acknowledgement from a good place/source can have a massive impact? Lately I've been stressing myself out too much. I have decided to set a timer on my cell to jolt me out of the zone when invested in specific hobbies and take a break. Maybe stretch or catch some air. At least until I get used to the idea or it becomes second nature. I'm also dividing time between hobbies and rotating them so many days out of the week. This includes aggressive workouts. The past few months I've had this rather stubborn idea to see where my physical limits are and it's finally taking a toll on my energy and muscle groups. Actually, in dealing with it, I've noticed that the more mentally stressed I am; the more I try to physically shake things off. Lastly, going to cut back on artwork for now, after a few projects that are in progress are done. I've been having terrible neck and wrist pains from the constant work and positioning.

    I'm currently back at home with my university studies seemingly on hold for the forseeabe future. I'm in a lucky position as I have a fair chunk of student loan to fall back on, plus savings if worst came to worst. Others are not so fortunate. The UK is likely to follow a similar course to Italy and Spain due to the slow initial response of our government. The economic impact of Covid-19 will be far more damaging than the actual virus and will persist longer than it too. People think that C-19 has caused this economic crisis, but in reality it has only catalysed an already existing issue. There was going to be a major crisis before 2030 and it's just come sooner than expected. It'll be the same again - bail out the banks, a few $Trillion to big business, workers/vulnerable/unemployed told to grit their teeth and pull through as best they can. A sorry state of affairs, and perhaps something we may be experiencing a lot more over the next century. I'll try and be optimistic though and say that this crisis could spur on the radical political and economic changes the globe needs.

    I work in what is classified as an "essential" industry here in the US so my job is safe for the time being. A manager where I work came up with the brilliant idea of having shirts made that say 'I'm Essential' on them & honestly, it made my stomach turn. How distasteful can you be? People in our community are getting laid off left & right, businesses that people have put their all into are being closed down, & this idiot wants to run around town wearing a shirt that literally rubs it in their faces...good grief! As for myself, I've got savings & I'm in good health. I'm also listening to the experts & keeping my distant from others. Stay safe, everyone!

    I'm honestly wondering how my country, Austria, is doing compared to other countries. We border Italy and had the first cases of infected some weeks ago and since then a steady rise of infected. We had an exponential growth, then we went into lock-down and since then an almost linear rise. That's odd, since as long we are not flattening, which would happen before a decline in cases, i.e. more cured than newly infected, the rise would still be exponential except somewhat slower. Also, while many people have respected the lock down so far and we didn't see any people panic buying anything (just a couple of idiots but nothing extreme like in other countries) its odd to see especially older people sitting in cafes in the cities. I guess they're the first one to not believe the media and shout "Fake news" and "hoax" and what not. (despite the media over here reporting the situation fairly well and neutral... if we ignore the tabloids) I guess in this regard it's no surprise that many of the confirmed cases are people above 60, although that might also be the case because predominately more serious cases are being tested. Locking at the stats, we've done barely over 35 000 tests in total. Germany has been doing hundreds of thousand of tests per week. (However, the tests per 100 000 citizens is almost the same... I just don't know what that means for a pandemic...) If we assume that every country is just x weeks behind earlier infected countries like Italy (which typically holds true for countries with similar measures) we should have a surge in deaths in a few days to one week, while Germany probably still has some time (despite the high number of infected. They just do a lot of tests compared to other countries). Countries like Spain, France and the US are going to be interesting. 3 countries where the virus could spread for weeks until the governments started doing something... they'll probably have a rough time in 2 - 4 (ish) weeks. I just hope that these countries see Italy as an example of what could happen if they don't do enough... so far it doesn't seem so. Yeah, stay at home if you can. Wash your hands regularly at work and after/while you went/are outside. (of buy deinfectants. Or mix high % alc with a drop of bleach or something like that.)

    Went for a drive today just to get out & clear my head. My city is beginning to look like a ghost town with businesses closing down left & right & very few people out & about. This is just becoming very surreal & extremely worrying. Hope everyone on this forum is doing well.

    Going to place under spoilers so that none of your precious eyes fall out, looking upon this wall of text. @Anime loveer @RZ. @The History Kid Lastly, I love you all. It's easy to overlook the types of struggles we're going through, individually. Not from intended neglect but because we're out here, trying to do our thing as best as we can. Your toils are recognized! Big or small.

    I also crush them up & sprinkle them over cakes & brownies right after I bring them out of the oven. I generally frost them with either melted candy bars or devil's food fudge pudding first & them top with the crushed cookies. I haven't made one of these treats in almost a year since I've been working on losing weight & being more active but believe you me, I am looking very much forward to making them again!

    On their own I take on side off, eat the side without filling, then the side with filling. I've recently discovered the art of crushing them up and sprinkling them on ice cream though so perhaps that's my prefered method

    I work in leisure/entertainment and currently experiencing a heavy drop in hours due to the virus so either way I have extra free time. Im in a mood for something lighthearted and Himouto! Umaru-chan has been on the list for a while. I heard things about Your lie in April and Nichijou. I also need to see the latest season of My Hero Academia. Understandingly my anime society has closed its doors for a while and I have been really into Seven Deadly Sins so I can enjoy the rest at my own pace rather than waiting every week.

    In my lowest, during holiday; the cold of Winter. I sat in silence near a busy stream. The air that filled my lungs with a sudden calm seemed so ancient to me. It was here that I thought of my father. It’s been so long but I remember following right behind him, up the cliffside and to a towering summit. He could have said something, anything, but he did not. He just took a deep breath and listened. As the snow collected on my shoulders and the wind raced by, I heard my father’s voice. In the form of wild things—then I understood. I heeded and thought where the quiet had lifted. And there were many things being said.

    A little late but I have a few suggestions. If looking for something similar to Arjuna, try Magic Knight Rayearth. It has similar pacing, is a magical girl type, and similar art. Then if you like Rayearth, consider giving Ronin Warriors a try. It's art style is very close to Rayearth and although not a magical girl type, it is a true classic. For something like Solty Rei (I loved that anime!), try Outlaw Star for starters and possibly Galaxy Railways. You have a scifi/space opera component and older looking graphics.

    Finally gave up AT&T and called Spectrum. They're definitely the second choice in terms of uplink and downlink speed and ping times. OTOH, they actually managed to get their shit working, unlike that other utility. And OTGH pretty much anything beats AT&T's old 8mbit DSL.

    my neighbor's husband went to our local walmart and the shelves were empty. this older man had the last three packages of toilet paper and wouldn't give anyone who actually needed them. the husband snatched the toilet paper and walked off. its so bad down in florida. luckily my boyfriend buys them in bulk on a regular basis online (cheaper than buying them from the store). im just so confused as to why people are stocking up on toilet paper? like. what does it have to do with the virus? i can understand cleaning supplies. i guess people are hoarding up just in case they have to stay inside for a long period of time? i've no idea

    Welcome to the forums, hope you enjoy it here For an action series I would recommend Demon Slayer (Kimetsu no Yaiba). For something with a lot of awesome fights but is more philosophical too try Dororo & Vinland Saga. VS is particularly epic, but also pretty bleak. For series that are more psychological & suspenseful try The Promised Neverland, Deathnote & Shiki.

    I don't know. From what I can gather is that you have a remarkable gift for making others feel welcomed. You have a great personality and not only are you a wonderful listener but your advice has been truly grounded and open. Additionally, you put a lot of generous time into others. It's one of the things I really appreciate about you when I come across it. Where did this person come from? BOOM! Godsend. I think you are the talent.
