Ugh what didn't I do as a weeb? Back when myspace was the place to hang my page was covered head to toe in ridiculous "OMGZ SO RANDOMZ XDXDXD" icon shit. I was "married" to my friend, my anime twu wuv changed every week I found a new show and I roleplayed as various oc's for hours. They were all obviously from Japan and had sad tragic backstories. I ran up my mothers phone bill ($200+ charges) by buying all those clothes and elementals and shit for your avatar on Gaia. Around the same time my parents went through a rough patch and separated which allowed me to develop my own uber tragic backstory and start dressing like the cool kids which meant going emo/scenester. I was totally edgy cutting my hair super short and listening to My Chemical Romance while teeheeing at teh yaoiz because omg boys having sex omg I'm reading something meant for the 18+ crowd!

My (now) friend and I have done email and have really liked doing so through face book because we know when each other has seen or is just taking their time writing... its really heaven compared, no more having to be late to a promised time and being able to do so with phones is just soooo convenient. As for starting, I have a few saved because I would type them up in word. Basically you're putting a character in a situation that would allow others to join. I enjoy the tavern setting because it allows for a lot of different characters to interact at first and wouldn't seem out of the norm for two different walks of life to meet.

Yeah, I'm a closet weeb too. Never let it out into public past middle school because I started hanging out with normal people. It wasn't until I starting dating my husband that it became a thing for me again. But again, only in private.

>> No.7377863

I was always really shy, so even in my weeb phase in high school, I was never obnoxious and loud. I was still pretty weird, though.
I think I started drawing anime with pokemon and then digimon, I can't quite remember, but I did quite well, since I'd been drawing other types of cartoons already. My drawing caught the attention of people who liked anime. This one girl, though, I think she might have been a bad influence because I noticed my behavior changing little by little. Maybe I just admired her bold and outgoing behavior, as I thought it was back then. She was one of those weebs who would act like an obnoxious squeaky anime character. She'd whine and make cat sounds and she was aggressive and spoke random japanese. She'd push her yaoi onto me and it made me uncomfortable.
I picked up some of these habits, though. Not to the extreme she did. That just wasn't in my nature. But I did some really weebish things like wear cat ears to my afterschool club. I wasn't the only one doing it, though, but I'm still a little embarrassed. I guess my weeb phase was just a phase I went through where I thought my friends were interesting and i wanted to fit in. I also thought I was cool to shout japanese insults at people who I thought were picking on me, and doing that anime thing where you stick your tongue out and pull your eyelid down. That was pretty stupid. Also, I did the lol so random XD thing online, too.
Oh, those were dark times.
I'm pretty sure my nonweeb friends still talk about me and the embarrassing things I did in high school.

I was 13 when I drew this.

I'm incorrigible. I still have this OC and still use the nickname I share with this character (because she'll always be my kawaii catgirl fantasy self). But it feels really comforting and I try to keep this side of me on the downlow when dealing with people in real life. Close friends know and share some interests with me so I know they won't judge me, but I really don't want to be seen as an obnoxious snowflake by anyone else.

My husband also doesn't mind and even thinks it's kinda cute.

How much does teaching English pay anon? I also saw an anon on another thread aiming for this job.

>> No.7379190

Most programs have quoted me about $3,000 a month, that's on top of free housing and flight reimbursement though, and considering rent prices in japan that's pretty dang good. If you are certified to teach ESL you can get higher wages, (It's oddly not required by a good chunk of schools... but its a good perk that gives you a step up in getting hired) and I've heard of some teachers also taking up tutoring for some extra dough.

It's by no means a job that will get you rich, but you get to live in an exotic country for decent pay plus free rent, and most other countries will only quote you about 1.5k to 2k a month and not offer help with housing.

Hong Kong and South Korea also are really good for ESL teaching. They pay about the same or higher than Japan and from what I hear also help with rent and hat not.

If you don't go through a program like JET for instance (the most popular choice) you have better say in where you get placed and can maybe negotiate a better salary. I'm not as much an expert in it as I want to be yet, I only recently made the decision to go for it and I still have like a year and a half till I'm done with uni.

>> No.7379468

A former classmate of mine at uni was paid $45k per year to work 25hr/wk at a private English school in Seoul, and he received a good stipend for housing/living expenses on top of that.
If JET wouldn't look so good on my resume/CV, I would apply to other places. I might still have to considering how competitive it is. Like you, however, I have another year of school before I have to worry.

>> No.7379503

Yeah I was nervous about the price quote because it does really depend on your school. I'm going to apply directly to the private schools hopefully, since they pay a lot more.

And yeah it goes up and down in competitiveness, I'm taking a year off before I go straight there so I can get as certified as I can to teach and do everything to give me an edge over the competition. Thankfully I've got a pretty good resume building up behind me.

I also really laugh when people tell me you don't need to know japanese. Like I've heard you can get by with out it but I'd rather air on the side of caution and learn it.

My current plan, if I can, is to teach for a bit in Hong Kong, Korea, and Japan since they all pay well and I don't do good being stuck in one country for too long.

I think the one thing I'm really concerned with is I wouldn't be able to go home for christmas or back to the states at all much. Their holidays and times off are so different, not to mention teachers are often expected to work on holidays over there. I still have a pretty strong attachment to where I grew up and I know its going to be hard moving so far away for so long.

I never understood this even in full weeb mode. I thought it was really weird that there were people who did that. Tumblr nonsense makes me cringe incredibly hard.

People mistake me for being a halfer(always Chinese Korean or Japanese. Though more often Korean) and it just kind of annoys me, even in my weeb phase when people asked I informed them I was quite white.

Literally get asked 2-10 times a year, even my chinese boyfriend I was at least 1/4. My ex's friends apparently made a bet with him that I was at least a little bit. I think they're just retarded and see pasty olive skin+round face+brown eyes+dark hair=AZN

I think the worst I got was some Korean kid pointing to his korean basketball shirt during some kind of conversation about it and saying "You know what I'm talking about" or this Chinese girl's relative ((during her birthday party)suddenly speaking to me in Chinese and then a giant OHHHH when she explained why I was confused.

I have a friend who used to/still does to some degree act as a fake boi online, it kind of annoys me but I'm still sad that we live in different parts of the country now since she was a good friend.

Low self-esteem, feuding parents and an alcoholic dad. Seriously, it made me embarrassed to be their child and always made fun for not having a dad who's a lawyer or a doctor, as if I can help it.
So, being 14, I made shit up. Suddenly my dad was successful and I was happy for the time being. Then I moved away to college and away from them, so I didn't need the schtick anymore.

These are kawaii as fuck.

I wasn't a drawing weeb, I was a roleplay weeb. I saved all of the roleplays I've ever participated in, and they number more than 300. I keep them mostly to see how I've progressed with characters, comparing the ones I have now to my old mary sues. I also keep them for cringe factor because every one of them was a yaoi roleplay, and we would always move onto a new plot once our characters had sex in the current one.

I did all the other weeby things though. We would give each other nicknames. For each anime that we watched, we picked a character that we were and I was always the strongest, and wouldnt allow anyone to be stronger than me. For example, I was Lord Aizen from Bleach and no one could be Ichigo, and I was Giratina and no one could be a legendary Pokemon. I tried to be edgy and dark, always talking about horror movies, ghosts, and demons and shit.

I thank the Lord that I never went on 4chan during my weeb phase, and I never had a Gaia either. I was on Neopets, though, and made them my own Naruto squad. I also had a Deviantart where I posted my shitty writing since I couldnt draw.

I think part of the problem was that I was afraid to really describe it. I've literally never told or hinted at it to anyone in my life, besides that.

The worst thing ever is my dad trying to convince me to work at a camp during the summer semester. It's not that I would do anything stupid, I still know what's right and wrong, but I wouldn't feel right having them placed in my care.

I think this is more for /ic/, but since everybody is talking about their (weaboo) past, why not.

I'm not pretty confident for drawing atm. You can say its an art block, but I feel like no matter how much I show progress, my art still is unnoticed even for my close friends. I love to draw to myself and the few people that does notice it, but still feel its not enough and I really envy when someone does a quick sketch and gets hundred of comments and favs while a pretty ass watercolored pic of mine doesn't. I remember a topic about envy here, so I think I'll apply it too. (Pic related, the last pic I'm working in).

There are a few records (read: literally like, 2 or 3 cases) of people being arrested for having 2d stuff in Australia, yes. Because they're so infrequent, though, and the laws apparently vary by state, nobody's really sure what the actual policies on this shit are.

>> No.7388441

For the trees it was supposed to be on 30 minutes (speed painting purposed), but I saw it will take me a little more, so I dropped that and I'll put more details on the trees for sure. In general I spend 2-3 hours (traditionally) and 3-4 hours (digitally).

>> No.7388467

That's a shit amount of time for a finished digital piece, and even shittier with traditional media. If all you do is speed painting then slow down a bit.
Try to work out where the lights are coming from, and spend your time working and reworking the details, refining them as much as possible. Especially those trees.

Don't be afraid to use a reference to recreate the textures convincingly, mess around with brushes more, use bigger brushes, etc.

It would also be more appealing to the viewer if there was some composition, instead of just a flat background covered with the same color, and an interesting color palette (think saturation, values, all that color wheel nonsense that you can fuck with in digital)

Anyway that's my two cents, you can probably go to the /ic/ board on one of their stylization threads to get proper verbal abuse.

>> No.7388471

Thank you, anon. You really have good points and I'll use them from now on.

>> No.7388485

Another anon, but speed painting is generally not the best idea when you're still learning more basic aspects of art. Get yourself to a more comfortable level and understand how digital media works a bit more before giving that particular aspect of practice a shot.
Other than that, that anon knows their shit and if you can dredge through the shit, /ic/ is pretty rad.

I think it's probably normal to actually be chemically attracted to other races, dat delicious genetic diversity. Whereas it's probably socially easier to find people within your own racial group.

Unfortunately, the lighting in my hotel bathroom was way different than just average lighting, and I didn't realize how dark the makeup looked - I looked like I was wearing blackface, and people kept glaring at me and I didn't realize why until I passed a mirror and screamed, I was so mortified.

Australia has a national firewall, and as long as you don't run into blocked sites a certain amount of times there's very little chance of police ever discovering what you're up to (they can't wiretap without probable cause). If you do get a message telling you a site is blocked, you're still not in trouble if you stop right there. A few times is considered an honest mistake, but do it many times and your ISP will tattle on you. When you know for a fact that even shota is being blocked, consider whether you're addicted to such a degree you're willing to pay for a speedy encrypted proxy.

BTW if it's your own personal AV suite/firewall saying a site is blocked, then it just means there's probably a virus at the other end. Apart from the heart attack it's nothing to worry about.
