@ShawnMalluwa-U04BBP8H9FA0spent a bunch of today remastering/remaking a bunch of backgrounds from chapter 2 of my webcomic. a short story:
we made chapter 2 in 2020, having shifted from paint tool sai to medibang, and were very much still figuring out what the fuck we were doing. I was still dumb and barely understood print media, but this was around the time i decided I needed to get it. Halftoning was a concept we explored in chapter 1, but didn't use super extensively past two pages because we decided to do chapter 1 in full color (among a lot of other issues with the original chapter 1, but thats a story for another time). This time, I wanted to get it right. I tried a couple different processes, mainly on creating halftoned shaders in blender. the problem, however, was that I just wasn't good at using the EEVEE renderer, and halftone shaders don't work in cycles. I then looked for a post production solution, and found an amazing paint.NET plugin which served wonderfully. There was one issue though: backgrounds were resized. I rendered every background at a standard resolution of 3840x2160, and @jeijii-U04GRS3T9J8 would resize/crop these to fit the panels. when a halftoned monochrome image gets resized, and you use bilinear scaling, it gets really ugly.
we didn't realize how bad it was until we switched to clip studio paint for chapter 3 and used it's built in halftoning feature. chapter 2 was left neglected, as we pressed forward with the rest of volume 1. UNTIL NOW! As we get ready for a print release of volume 1, we're going back and fixing/tweaking every chapter. this includes redoing chapter 1 in it's entirety, and remastering much of chapter 2!
@ShawnMalluwa-U04BBP8H9FA0here is my shopping list! it's just 7 projects so far, with some having already started and some not even past the conceptual phase. all things I'm super excited about exploring!
@cskartikey01/2 split cockroach 🪳.
I did not split, however, being a brave man, I zoomed it a few feet away. (With a broom ofc)
@EfeÖzülkü0Day 3 of learning (to) and making a website: Learning CSS text styles!
@ThomasStubblefield0Today marks the end of my time as the Dorman Hack Club leader, as I officially handed over the reins to Jaime, our club's next leader. I am excited to see how he leads his club and grateful for his decision to continue this space for makers at DHS.
In addition, today also marks the release of the Carolina Hacks mini-documentary (attached to this post). Carolina Hacks was a hackathon that my friends and I organized, and it was a truly unforgettable experience. Thanks to everybody who helped make it awesome.@Sameer0Loopey Loop!! @Shrey-Mehra@Shreeya:loophole:
@Sameer0Day 8 of WHW #hardware-party, I had to head out early because we had to go to our village :villager: for EID💫 . So, I woke up really early and did some wiring and assembled the bldc motor & tested the net thrust component, I got some reading around 1.1kg in net force, and then headed out. Rest of day was packed with EID preparation and i am awaiting tomorrow :akkoshrug: eagerly. Well, that was it for today! I'll see you all tomorrow! Bye, Goodnight!
PS: After being yelled at by my father for driving:driftt: , (In his own words) "weirdly" :weirddude: i tried some cool art filters and edited some pictures.

… that’s enough of that. We occasionally like looking at channel activity. Unfortunately, Slack’s official stats page SUCKS. Poor @KaraMassie has been, like, manually putting stuff into a spreadsheet every week for months.
So. I built her a nice little webapp to see weekly stats in a much improved form factor! Always fun making things from scratch :)
And since this stuff is cool to look at and helpful for everyone, it’s public and open to contributions -> slack-stats.hackclub.dev

So here’s what I’m asking from you 💬 in this thread, can you drop any ideas (as wild as you’d like) for features that’d help clubs!(and enjoy the short update video / weekly recap)@Omay03/10 of #10-days-in-public, i didnt have much time, heres me struggling (and failing) to solve virtual rubiks cube. i couldnt find my real one, because i brought it to school to show a friend@ian0Day 0: A [bad] clue
