You'll never oekaki in this town again by General-RADIX You'll never oekaki in this town again by General-RADIX
Literally, because almost no one can get the applets working on modern systems; you have to either pull some arcane tricks with Java that I can't figure out, or do what I did and boot up the XP. (And then struggle with the hideously unstable mess that is Internet Explorer, because the much better Firefox can't run Java anymore)

There's many things I miss about the oekaki scene, and barring some unforeseen development, I don't think it'll really come back. Heck, I don't know if dA even still has the relevant category.

Anyway, the art itself--these were drawn at RPM's oekaki board, and checking my own profile reminded me that I hadn't posted anything there in four years. The top two are on there; the bottom weren't. May or may not be updated, for that depends on how much of my patience IE tries.

* For my first attempt, I used Durandal as my subject.

* And where Durandal is, Vince is usually not far behind.

* Experimental thing with Leela.

* Tycho invading Durandal's personal space; had Depeche Mode's "World in My Eyes" in mind.

Ohhh, I haven't heard the word "oekaki" in a long time. I actually forgot about it (though I never did it myself). :noes:
Something about this looks different from your recent stuff. The colours are darker and more vibrant. And the shading style is different?
Whatever it Is, I think it works well. It certainly made it "pop" and caught my eye in the thumbnails.

The first picture's my favourite. The blue one has a cool colour scheme too.

(There's a stupid flash ad on the right side of my screen that was lagging my typing or something. I'm so glad it didn't make me misspell "pop".)

Easy to forget about when Java does something that makes it nearly impossible to run. XD;

Maybe that has something to do with the monitor my XP's hooked up to? It's a lot brighter than I'm used to. (And yep, shaded these differently than normal)

Glad that you like how these turned out! ^^

It's really that bad, huh? That's a shame for a community like that to hit such a roadblock. :hmm:

Ohh, yeah, that would make sense. I've had that before. I'd colour something at work (after my work's done, honestly :paranoid:), then take it home and the colours are kinda off. :|

Yep. :)
