Second-largest TV network is now airing patriotic ads, one of them bearing "Brasil: ame-o ou deixe-o" ("love it or leave it"), an infamous slogan used by the military junta in the early 70s, when it was at the height of its popularity and radicalism. This has been the source of much worry and criticism. I'd say it's just a devious ploy to draw attention and get a few viewers.
I've seen a lot of maps like these popping up recently. I'm guessing these come from people who learn European history through Paradox games. This hurts my eyes. >us wanting to unite with the Swedes, let alone the Dutch and Austrians >Balkans, let alone the ENTIRE SLAVIC WORLD wanting to unite >apparently, Istanbul and much of Asia Minor is Greek, yet Königsberg and the rest of Prussia is Slavic >the Flemish are part of pan Latinism >Cornwall being that big >Finns, Estonians, and Hungarians are apparently part of the Indo-European world, but Basques aren't represented in Spain and France >neither are Caucasians represented in the Caucasus >Ossetia isn't included as part of the Iranian world >Evropa, yet the guy who made this map is likely an American who speaks English
>>20640 <The party's emblem is the whirlwind (in Arabic Zawba'a زوبعة). It was designed by the SSNP students at the American University of Beirut while the party was still clandestine and before the French authorities had uncovered it in 1936. Saadeh stated the whirlwind was found engraved on ancient Syrian artifacts, and it is known from for example Sumerian art. <Each arm symbolizes one of the four virtues of the party's mission: freedom, duty, discipline and power. <According to SSNP lore, the black color symbolizes the Dark Ages of Ottoman rule, colonialism, sectarian division, national division, and backwardness. The "Zawba'a" allegedly represents the blood of the SSNP martyrs bound together as Muslims and Christians through freedom, duty, discipline and power as a hurricane to purge the Dark Ages and spark their nation's rejuvenation and renaissance.
>>20641 >it is known from for example Sumerian art. I'm not sure about that. But can be created with that wedge-shape the cuneiforms consist of. >four virtues ... : freedom, duty, discipline and power. Since when fukkin power is a virtue? Otherwise it's kinda noble with all the other was written but it's always a job to write nice things. Not many group can be successful with such marketing that tries to paint themselves as evil bastards.
H.R.6747 is a Republican-backed anti-gun bill that would put a so-called "safety grant" program in place, effectively providing funding to states for the implementation of GVRO/ERPO programs.
GVROs/ERPOs result in confiscation of firearms without due process, and this bill would encourage ALL states to adopt such programs at the expense of taxpayers like yourself.
This dangerous, anti-gun bill MUST be stopped, so we need your help.
Using FPC's Grassroots Action form below, send a message to Congress and tell them to OPPOSE H.R.6747

Main news poster here: Over the next few days I'm going on a trip to see some relatives so I'll be gone and won't be able to post any news for a while. Just want the BO and other readers to know that, maybe you guys can keep this board alive and going by posting some news.
I would also highly appreciate seeing an update on the Brazil election when I get back here. That election will be on the 28th, and I won't be here to report that. I'll post some news updates today (the ones I couldn't post because endchan was under DDoS attack) and tomorrow I'm gone.
>>13093 I would also appreciate very much if someone were to keep tabs on the invasion situation at the border. If the US govt/military stands down, let us know about their treason. Unfortunately I likely won't be here to report it.
>>13116 Thanks for that update. Glad this dude won, commies BTFO. I'm back today and must play some catchup which will take a while. Will be posting news here and on 8fags too, later on, when I get enough news to gather up and post. Remain patient, I'll be doing some news gathering today and it might not be posted till tomorrow.
NOTE for BO (and fellow readers): main news poster here, my daughter's family is coming to visit tomorrow and they'll be staying over for a week. I likely will not be on here while they come over and visit for Thanksgiving holiday. Expect a few days without any news from me. Hope you guys keep the board going while I'm gone. Thanks.
Just days after taking back the House, a Democratic Congressmen has proposed outlawing "military-style semi-automatic assault weapons" and forcing existing owners to sell their weapons or face prosecution.
In a USA Today op-ed entitled “Ban assault weapons, buy them back, go after resisters,” Rep. Eric Swalwell, D-Calif., argued Thursday that prior proposals to ban assault weapons “would leave millions of assault weapons in our communities for decades to come.”
Swalwell proposes that the government should offer up to $1,000 for every weapon covered by a new ban, estimating that it would take $15 billion to buy back roughly 15 million weapons - and “criminally prosecute any who choose to defy [the buyback] by keeping their weapons.”
As NBC News reports, this is a major departure from prior gun control proposals that typically exempt existing firearms; as in the past, Democrats and gun safety groups have carefully resisted proposals that could be interpreted as 'gun confiscation', a concept gun rights groups have often invoked as part of a slippery slope argument against more modest proposals like universal background checks.
And sure enough Swalwell's egotistical over-reach - going full "Australia" - prompted anger across social media. But it was one particular thread that caught our eye...
John Cardillo, 'America Talks Live' host on Newsmax, tweeted in response: "Make no mistake, Democrats want to eradicate the Second Amendment, ban and seize all guns, and have all power rest with the state. These people are dangerously obsessed with power."
Make no mistake, Democrats want to eradicate the Second Amendment, ban and seize all guns, and have all power rest with the state.
Earlier this week, DoubleLine's Jeff Gundlach held his latest webcast with investors in which he warned that as a result of rising hedging costs, US Treasury bonds have become increasingly unattractive to foreign buyers. This can be seen in the chart below which shows the yield on the 10Y US TSY unhedged, and also hedged into Yen and Euros. In the latter two cases, the yield went from over 3%, to negative as a result of the gaping rate differential between the Fed and ECB or BOJ.
This is also why, as the next chart from Gundlach showed, foreign holdings of US Treasurys have been declining in recent years, and dropped to just over 36% as a percentage of total holdings, the lowest in over a decade, as domestic holdings of US paper have risen to just shy of 50%, and near all time highs.
Which brings us to today's latest monthly TIC data which showed that, as Gundlach would expect, the holdings of the two largest foreign US creditors, China and Japan, declined to multi year low.
As shown in the chart below, China’s holdings of U.S. Treasuries fell to the lowest level since mid-2017 as the world’s second-largest economy sold US reserves to stabilize the yuan which has been depreciating in recent months due to the ongoing trade war.
Chinese holdings of U.S. Treasuries declined for a fourth month to $1.151 trillion in September, from $1.165 trillion in August, a $14 billion decline. Despite the drop, China remained the biggest foreign creditor to the U.S., followed by Japan whose Treasury holdings also dropped by $2 billion to $1.028 trillion, the lowest since 2011.
Investors have been searching for clues whether China is dumping its vast holding of U.S. Treasuries to retaliate against U.S. tariffs, though Beijing has given no indication it’s doing so; meanwhile while the TIC data is relatively accurate, it tends to be revised rather materially which is why it is certainly possible that China's real holdings, when adjusted for valuation and currency changes, are far lower.
Of course, instead of selling Treasurys, China may have decided to hold on to its reserves and allow the yuan to depreciate against the USD, but not too much: so far 7.00 has emerged as a "red line" for the PBOC. The Chinese currency has already depreciated more than 4 percent against the dollar in the past year amid signs of an economic slowdown and capital outflows. In September, China’s foreign-exchange reserves stockpile fell by $22 billion to touch the lowest level since July 2017, however much of that number was due to valuation adjustments.
Going down the list, while Russia's Treasury liquidation was well documented in June and July, two new aggressive sellers of US paper emerged in the latest data: France, whose Treasury holdings declined from $118.4BN to $97.7BN...
In a week which began with warnings from YouTube about the potential negative effects of the EU's Article 13 proposals, an interesting development is being reported by Julia Reda, MEP for the Pirate Party. The vice chair of the Greens/EFA group reports that YouTube CEO Susan Wojcicki has visited Strasbourg and now appears to be lobbying in favor of upload filters.
As the heated debate over the EU’s controversial Article 13 proposals continues, YouTube is becoming ever more vocal.
Relatively silent in the run-up to the September vote which saw the European Parliament vote in favor of proposals put forward by Axel Voss’ EPP group, YouTube now seems very concerned over the possibility of being held liable for infringing content uploaded to its platform.
“While we support the goals of article 13, the European Parliament’s current proposal will create unintended consequences that will have a profound impact on the livelihoods of hundreds of thousands of people,” Wojcicki wrote in blog post earlier this week.
Wojcicki’s statement carried a stark warning that liability for YouTube under Article 13 could force the platform to block content from EU citizens. No company could take on such a financial risk, she said.
Thus far, the Article 13 debate has been polarized, with the entertainment industries hugely in favor and companies like YouTube and pro-Internet freedom groups strongly against. Now, however, a new development has created an interesting split in the ranks, with Julia Reda, MEP for the Pirate Party, warning that YouTube is now lobbying in favor of upload filters.
As detailed in a release from Reda’s office this morning, YouTube CEO Susan Wojcicki has made a number of statements in recent weeks that indicate that the video hosting platform is in favor of pre-filtering content before it’s made available to the public.
Of course, Google has its ContentID filtering system already in place, meaning that it would be in pole position to further dominate the video hosting space, if the filtering option is adopted by the EU.
Yamanaka was a prolific author of children's fiction who serialized the novel Daitō no Tetsujin (Superman of the Great Orient) from August 1933 until the end of 1934 in the periodical Shōnen Kurabu (Boys' Club), read mainly by Japanese boys between the ages of 8 and 12. The hero of this story is the detective Hongō Yoshiaki who battles the villain Sekima, head of the shadowy Zion Alliance, a Jewish secret organization seeking to undermine the Japanese Empire. A typical quote from Superman of the Great Orient:
"There are about 13.5 million Jews scattered around the world. Hundreds of years ago they gobbled up all the world's wealth. Especially in the United States, Britain, France, and in other Western countries too, there are many rich Jews who do whatever they want with the money of the people...This wealth is used to increase the invisible Jewish power throughout Europe and the United States...These scary Jews have a secret society called the Zion Alliance. The goal of the Zion Alliance is...that all nations be ruled by Jews...This is a real global conspiracy."

К «Парижскому призыву к доверию и безопасности в киберпространстве» присоединились полсотни стран. Среди них не оказалось РФ, Китая и США.
Президент Франции Эммануэль Макрон сегодня на Форуме по управлению Интернетом представил «Парижский призыв к доверию и безопасности в киберпространстве» (Paris Call for Trust and Security in Cyberspace). Меморандум призван обеспечить мягкое регулирование Интернета.
Соответствующий документ опубликован на сайте Министерства европейских и иностранных дел Франции. Его поддержали 51 страна, несколько сотен коммерческих и некоммерческих организаций — всего более 370 подписантов.
Отметим, что среди стран, присоединившихся к документу, отсутствуют Россия, Китай и США.
Вместе с тем, документ подписали две компании из России — «Лаборатория Касперского» и Group-IB.
Согласно тексту документа, все, кто поддерживает Парижский призыв, подтверждают, что «права, которые закреплены за всеми людьми вне онлайн-пространства, должны защищаться и внутри него, и что международное право прав человека применимо в киберпространстве». Также они обязуются, в частности, укреплять предохранительные меры и сопротивляемость по отношению к злонамеренным действиям в онлайн-пространстве, защищать доступность и целостность Интернета, сотрудничать во избежание вмешательства в избирательные процессы, совместно работать над недопущением нарушений прав интеллектуальной собственности при помощи киберсредств, принимать меры против кибернаемничества и агрессивных действий негосударственных субъектов.
Как отметил Макрон, существует два подхода к регулированию Интернета: калифорнийский, который предполагает полную бесконтрольность, и китайский, когда государство полностью контролирует Сеть. Как сообщает РБК, президент Франции не является сторонником ни одного из этих подходов. Он убежден, что государства должны защитить граждан и от неправильного использования их данных, а также от вредного контента (детской порнографии, террористического, связанного с травлей в Интернете, выражением ненависти и т. д.).
Французский лидер уверен, что число подписантов документа будет расти. В то же время он признал, что реализация положений, предложенных в декларации, остается «крайне сложной задачей». Чтобы эффективнее решить поставленную задачу, Макрон предложил наделить Internet Governance Forum (IGF, Форум по управлению Интернета, входит в состав ЮНЕСКО) дополнительными полномочиями.
Согласно планам Макрона, IGF должен получить от ООН мандат, позволяющий форуму вести мониторинг реализации принципов, указанных в декларации.
>>2545 I knew I was forgetting about something important. The fact that I was looking at ourselves is that we may not have only written like 1100 or so from each other.
The most surprising things is that you have accepted almost all the ideas I have wanted to apply without complaints and witb a chill mentality. That's unexpected to see especially in an anonymous board.
I didn't expect to see what I wanted with so much freedom and lax mindset for anything. I have felt overwhelmed about the liberty I have had and even felt unoriginal to myself because of that lack of restrictions and complete access to anything.
Maybe it would have been stupid stuff yet it went much further,much more developed than I initially thought and having to recreate the situation,following it up properly.
You have praised me for opening new ways of editions or inspiring you for stories and those results weren't in the plans.
Although to be honest,nothing save those first days of December were planned.
PD: I see that you have decided to revive the WEBM thread as well....let's see how it goes
>>2542 >well, we are going to reach the 400 post mark soon. So yeah, I see it coming. I can feel it in the world of the bridges of Dolores...
>If you couldn´t apply it this year, why wouldn´t you read your own story months after posting it so you could not only enjoy it during that night but also getting your own feedback while getting comfy? That is a good idea.
>>2543 >In fact, he criticizes everything and no one is safe. He is defined as the 20 year old that has discovered the world of politics and tries to be nihilistic. You would say he is a newbie artist that has entered into the fame a few years ago but he has made like 8 albums before his character came up since 2003 so he perfectly knew what he was doing. Not a hero to listen but more like a drunk messenger that has caught the spotlight in a forced way while accidental at the same time. Almost respectable, though not a leader who rallied anybody to a cause, but someone who chose to scream from the outside. Perhaps fruitless and edgy. Still I find it intersting that I didn't run into somebody ranting about it in a certain light.
>Even if it does, as long as the views are understandable or have an artistic context to convey in their works, I just don´t look down at them for having different mindsets. There are other times in which one would use the artistic skills with obnoxious techniques and plain messages that I mostly pass. There are certain things I can't stand, but others I don't care about. Somtimes I can even enjoy something with a little lefty spirit to it. Especially when I can agree or partly see where it is coming from.
>the best thing is that despite the message or political intentions, I have checked that the album itself (A Space in Time) is worth it. Probably heard the album long ago, but it's not in memory. Glad that you can give that recommendation.
>>2545 >what else can be done? Just that I am wandering around the written lines around here and saying to myself: "Damn, have we written all of this?" And there are few things to celebrate unles we reach 5 digits which is too far away from the realistic expectations.
Yep. Unless we get an extra few posters I don't see 5 digits at all. What we have now feels like a curious experiment. We build something. Something which is larger and stronger than we thought, yet we have no idea where it going or what to do withit. It's fine as long we don't tire ourselves and keep it manageable, but it still doesn't answer the question.
>it was an unexpected stumble. Defining the board beyond the 8chan period and trying to put something else. I have wondered if I will get run out of ideas soon and my surprise comes from the fact that our minds still get a few new ones despite having posted the holy bible of our lives and stuff.
The fact that I'm working on two full stories at once, plus one shitposty one on the side is a testament to that, plus REDACTED
>It´s just that I posted my thoughts because I actually stopped caring a bit about the future and looked a bit about ourselves yesterday, feeling surprised and overwhelmed that two single fans could go that far because of.....ponies. It's haunting isn't it? How much time, yet how little. Though I cannot say how much, I can say this place had an influence on me. Never thought I'd ever have greens I'd wanna post or other such aspirations in the sort term that's for sure.
>>2548 >The most surprising things is that you have accepted almost all the ideas I have wanted to apply without complaints and witb a chill mentality. That's unexpected to see especially in an anonymous board. Perhaps been too chill, eh? As far as creativity s concerned, it can be helpful to have some boundary and such an environment can breed creativity . I have not pushed back on much simply because I've always had a very open personality on things I didn't like sense pony. I mean, like with your gay fic experiment from early on, I am an absolute moralfag with stuff like that, but I went ahead and gave it a chance because I had no idea what you'd bring to the table and as long it wasn't outright sexual I'd could probably read it okay, and my logic was : "if allowed on /mlp/, why should it be banned here?". Maybe I'm too laid back but I have been this way with many things and you really haven't done much that I've had any reason to disagree in concept or execution so far; at least not before I'd give it a chance anyway. And simple things I just tend to roll with or add to over push against. Though perhaps I should at least offer a bit more contrasting ideas at least.
>You have praised me for opening new ways of editions or inspiring you for stories and those results weren't in the plans. No they weren't. Just arose the board moved on. And they weren't the most revolutionary things in the universe or anything, far from it. But I enjoyed most of it pretty well. There was a interesting perspective to some of'em that I found different to the mentalities on Fimfic or /mlp/ greens. My biggest challenge with them was criticism, as when I like/find something at least interesting I just tend to mention why I liked it or what it made me think/feel for the most part over an assessment of quality itself . So most criticism was only restricted to non harshly delivered mentions of narration over overall assessment. Perhaps I should get a bit more critical over just my enjoyment of things (it's the same struggle I have with the show) I can understand this whole freedom to experiment and being free to have a fic that fails or sucks being seen for both it's blessings and it's problems honestly, even when discounting some things that should be abandoned from /mlp/'s mentality in the name of experimentation to occur.
PD: I see that you have decided to revive the WEBM thread as well....let's see how it goes
I know, crazy ain't it?
>>2544 >I must say that I also daydreamed before in 2013 and 2014 about PKMN or diverse things so I have only made it more obvious and paid it off with these fics and ideas. I cannot do that because otherwise one would call me crazy or too autistic to even consider a normal life when in fact I hide everything pretty well and very subtly as if ponies never happened in my life.
I daydream to music sometimes. I even have a few songs associated with certain ponies or situations, but your's seem deeper than mine. The way you speak of them reminds me of things of childhood even if it is somewhat recent. The personal things that you hold intimately out of an understandable fear or embarrassment though not necessarily ashamed off in their own right.
>One of them was about trying to take a picture of Thorax disguising himself as Twilight in the Canterlot garden that started all. After taking them, I wasn´t convinced about it and I just nodded no to him and threw that copy of the old days to the water. Interesting. Almost seems more like a sleep dream.
>I have daydreamed about Nightmare Rarity singing a la This Day Aria the song The Falconer. This fandom has always liked to ponify celebrities and pop culture. Well, I must say that I have considered Nightmare Rarity as the ponified version of Nico, singing about her misery in gloomy yet beautiful places but I have hardly the backstory defined. There's some potential in it, but it ultimately depends if inspiration strikes.
>you cannot catch a break,uh? At least I still have my favorite congressional lolcow.
First thing first: That dude of the Primitive Technology channel and all his copycats have a great advantage: access to unlimited supply of bamboo. Unlimited to their objectives. That stuff is great, tuff as shit, light as feather, can be used to many purpose with little modification and not too much work.
I also read most of this: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/General_Data_Protection_Regulation#Responsibility_and_accountability I think technology and it's use are running forward and lawmakers lag behind. Those who spent any time in the past two decades on the internet have a giant heap of data about them. I think Bernd posted a video about a security eggsbert, I think he works kind of a private investigator many time cooperating with officials and he said in that video anonymizing data worth nothing it can be de-anonymized with ease, and both companies and govt agencies do. Now this law was passed at 2016. This year the EU countries have to start implementing it. Who knows how long it takes until it finishes. The whole stuff is kinda vague (it can be modified when necessary tho), and I don't know for example how the EU can force a foreign company to do whatever? There are sanctions but what jurisdiction the EU has over a US based firm for example Facebook and how the EU will force the sanctions onto for example said company?
Painted the keg. Wanted to test it out tomorrow but forget a program I have most of the day, and when I'll get back I'll have lost most of the daylight. I expect a few more sunny days, but from the middle of the next week it will most likely rain, so next weekend is probably out. Now I'm planning to put it to it's place in the morn and leave it to the family the rest and listen their report when I get back. The sun heater isn't complete, I have to check some plans first and how to do it. Oh it needs glue ofc, would be more cost (by not much tho) but I got some from wörk. If I have enough foil I will make a smaller reflector, just a cardboard bent twice so it has three faces and can be put behind the keg. Will see.
It's snowing, wtf. Well I'll report back when a suitable weather arise and until then I'll try and make the sunny cooker as well. I think the main problem will be the Sun's and the sunny cooker's angle. Might look into ways to correct it. But little reflection from the back still will be more than none.
Maybe we could use the /end/ for archiving comics and check them out if we are bored or we have nothing else to post for hiatuses or dead periods.
As far the way a comic should be posted, instead of posting 5 images in just one post, I think it should fit a balance: 1 image for the first (the cover) and then two pages, feeling like you are a reading a physical one. I am posting Tempest´s one for now but yayponies has all of them and we can share some opinions or make them visible over here...just because.
>>2333 >So I suppose that the patrician choice is lurking on Ponychan because of its unpopularity and some early fan MLP chan before /mlp/ was created. Most patrician choice probably would have been the old FiMchan. Lot of earlier artist hanged out there, though nopony else so it died a long long long time ago in fandom years. I'll honestly have to think before I decide today if /mlp/ is considered plebeian, but that be my pick if you wanted something to be really uppity about being part of an elite club.
>>2335 >with the attack going on right now we are having other issues anyway! (btw, this is not isolated just to the /end/ either 8chan too has been other attack from what I understand) yeah, not sure if the Russians have something personal with /endchan/ or if it´s the usual walk around from the security intelligence. I was a bit surprised when I noticed that 8chan was affected as well this time around, I guess they want to ruin the alt chans a little bit. Anyway, there is always an advantage for that and you know what it means.
I could have prevented the digits because I was mostly unaffected with the .org version of the site.
>it was a fantasy setting and many anon simply had little to work with, especially for the first season. the first season brought the lore but you could barely do anything with it, not to mention that it barely showed episodes that would cut the edge unless you count Party of One or the cockatrice from the Stare Master. So many introductions but too little and too soon to use them. Basically the fandom was starving in those times yet when it hasn´t been hungry, it creates less content than the period when the show didn´t deliver. Time doesn´t always makes justice
>rules that now seem ridiculous like normal unicorns being almost unable to kill things with their magic (which died durring the use of combat magic in the canterlot wedding) or the most surface tier innocent world. Amazing what you can do now just with hasbro's canon. but time is a funny thing as well. It gets even more hilarious when almost all the villains are unicorns or display magic of any kind.Save maybe Cozy Glow, unicorns have dominated the villains department. Those who said it may laugh at themselves for saying that and eating their own words. Who said that Hasbro wouldn´take those risks? I guess we all underestimated the show capabilities for what it can offer.
>I love low stakes action mixed in with secondary adventure. Think Canterlot Wedding or when spike got his wings over high tier fanservice. Nice fight but I almost consider it a mistake would have ta make a whole other post on that though to explain myself and it probably be more fitting in the season 8 thread fanservice at once like Slice of Life doesn´t do many favors in general because it either becomes too awkward or out of place. Spike´s growth or A Canterlot Wedding added progression for the show (character development and a new species) so they can be justified with proper arguments. The mistake or that fight....go for the season 8 thread.
>So many side characters now some of the originals have lost their once huge fandoms, not that is a bad thing though.
>>2337 >Most patrician choice probably would have been the old FiMchan. Lot of earlier artist hanged out there, though nopony else so it died a long long long time ago in fandom years. that´s what I meant, the old chans created as a protest because of banning ponies on 4chan in general until the both of /mlp/ happened besides Ponychan. If nobody went there, then it´s no wonder it faded into obscurity that quick. Also the design and interface look really primitive (early 00s), considering that FiMFiction was created before it.
>I'll honestly have to think before I decide today if /mlp/ is considered plebeian, but that be my pick if you wanted something to be really uppity about being part of an elite club. shame that I never had the chance to join the elite club and point out the rest for going into plebeian routes....oh well, we´ll have the /end/ anyway. It balances the pleb taste a little bit.
/mlp/ is plebeian to my eyes because it holds one of the main roots and columns of this "meme fandom". Not to mention that the anniversary party always gets an article from EQD. In addition, the 4chan Cup also received some attention from outsiders so if it´s not plebeian, I don´t know what it could possibly be qualified with that term.
>>2549 https://www.equestriadaily.com/2018/11/andy-price-teasing-new-mlp-character-on.html "This may or may not be that character. Over on Instagram, Andy Price shared the image above with the tease "She's Coming... Look to the Stars". That seems to go against the male gender announced at the convention for Cosmos. It could have been a derp at the panel, a late change, or even another character entirely. Whoever it ends up being, that is one creepy eye."
I know it's not fair that I do this but sometimes I think good quality images are not going to be eternal. Someday we will arrive to Deviantart core quality and we all know what that means.
However,I can solve a little bit their colours. It's artificial yes but at least,those edits make it pleasant to the eye and serve to post something between the good ones. These two have like 10 upvotes or so and I am putting in the thumbnail which ones are edited.I can link them perfectly though.
>>2541 >I expected a positive reaction but not with that comment of mastering illusions and subtlety even though I love the fake realism concept (Blade Runner) and subtle conflicts/details (season 8) to point out above the main moral. >>2525 > Not calling you a master of illusion or anything but I am impressed. It opens up new avenues in editing as this is probably the best change of situation you have done. I recognize that you are not a master of illusion and it merely was a simple edit of many of pictures of ponies, I was still impressed with the thought put into it. and the fact you removed the bobbles so well. It made me think of doing removals and such and my mind just ran a little with possibilities.
>well thanks. I am glad to have offered something else with the same old tools and that comment relieves me because I felt like I was running out of ideas or punchy material to add over here. Don't worry about ideas. You're not here to impress. Most of this is from messing around without an afterthought. Sometimes leaving stuff to be desired, sometimes, cool ad in a few cases downright awesome. Just do what you feel lke in our own time.
>I just wanted to make an experiment and hide the fact that they were underwater. Focusing on the cuteness and simplicity served to hide the rest. This is why the eye betrays a lot and psychedelic abstract images exist. You said it was about romance and it served to hide one element (their cheeks) and just pretended that it was very simple, nothing special to mention around it... That was mere joking sarcasm on my part. It was a Pinkie Pie tier trick. It amused me, but it wasn't anything I saw as truly amazing.
>>2552 My 3rd least favorite edit of this group. Celestia's head and body look off in a slightly uncanny way that isn't salvageable in an edit. The pink sun looks worse in my opinion. Back to the picture itself those feathers look excellent, almost too detailed compared to that body.
>>2553 This is my favorite edit in contrast. The change of pink to black is just common sense with how light that pink that was. Love the colors added around the outside.
>>2556 This image wasn't that flawed in the first place but things look a lttle smoother in the edit. I like it better black and white and centered on Luna. Things look more defined. Tear standouts more in particular.
>>2554 >>2555 These are my first and second least favorite edits. Even if I never got to see them. The fact that these images are unmemeable goes against the very core of this fandom's blood. Agreed on deletion.
