Yeah man, i was really sad to hear that.

It is a sign that this place is aging. From the mod side the cracks are really showing around here. The captchas utterly fail to prevent anything, and legitimate members join so rarely It's hard to get to them in time to keep them active after i check them off as real people.

I still think about doing something about that one day, and i do have a few educational projects i want to startup properly that i may be able to direct people here for. But i would need to do something about the captchas before that happens.

Oh shit. That sucks about Sev.

After a shitty drawing class in high school I kinda lost my drive for art. I still doodle stuff here and there, but I haven't sat down and really worked on something in a while. I devoted all that creative energy to comedy and I write for @midnight now.

I think what Jeanox is saying is true. Forums are just kinda dead now with social media. People just share their art on Tumblr now. I know I'm following Jeanox, but if any of you guys are on there let me know, so I can keep up with your work.

It's good to see some people are still keeping the dust off this place.

(Glances at the "Join Date" column for each of the posters in this thread, then at the year on the calendar.)

Whoa. All things considered, I'd say this forum has been wildly successful.

If anyone knows of (or finds) places that have that kind of focus, then please: share them. For now, the best use I've been able to make of social media is posting daily sketches on tumblr in coordination with another artist (posting on their own tumblr) to support each other and keep ourselves accountable.

I try to check in from time to time, but I've been pretty lax for a while. I've gotten super busy coloring a bunch of comics, that I barely have time to gather food to eat, let alone do anything else. Glad some of us still pop our heads up occasionally.

I saw the forum say it was your birthday a day or two ago. Happy late one.

I was always more lurker than regular, but I still check in. Although, I have been afraid to check as of late, because I assumed it would be too sad to see this place dead and decayed.

I just turned 30 last month. I work at Johns Hopkins and I live in Baltimore. I still draw when I can, but as a hobby. I have two drawings hanging here in my office right now.

I still remember the good ol' days back on the eZboard when I joined in 2001 (!). I am glad you recognizable faces are still here to make it feel like some vestige of the old place still remains.

As a side note, I am friends with a good few of you on Facebook, and I like trying to suss out which of you is which from here since I have long forgotten.

Default Bonjourno Is everyone dead

Just wanted to let everyone know that I am not dead. You probably havent heard a peep from me in a loooooong time. Over a year in fact. Someday soon I am planning on resubbing and getting back into the flow of things. Just been a lot going on with school lately. Fairly soon though. And boy do I have a lot of stories to talk about since when I last made contact with you guys. But yeah....Not dead.

But it is not this day. An hour of bots and shattered keyboards when the age of the Internet comes crashing down! But it is not this day! This day we POST! By all that you hold dear on this good Earth, I bid you awaken! Oldies of PK!



So uh...what's everyone been up to?

Got a full-time job that sometimes involves art, most of the time no.

It's been sucking up almost all my time and energy. Otherwise I'd have a lot more to post.

For the foreseeable future, unfortunately yes.

I can free up time to paint... but it makes my schedule look like sleep work paint.

That sucks...well I hope you'll be getting something good out of all those longs hours you're putting in.

Anyways, its kind of weird that social media has pretty much taken over what forums used to do for artists, but it has pretty much failed to replicate the critique and improvement system that sites like PK and ConceptArt had. I mean, its pretty much impossible to get any real feedback on any of the social media sites. Even the critique feature they implemented seems just like a more dedicated way of not saying much. There are probably some private groups dedicated to improvement but the useful ones are not ones anyone can get into. Its not like PK where you have really great artists taking their time to help out new artists.
