This is a link to takamin paint chat. It's extremely easy to use, and you don't need to register a username or anything, just type in a name and click the button, and you're in.

For anyone who's confused about specifics, like changing opacity and whatnot, the following link is a tutorial:

http://www.dragon-tear.net/forum/showth ... post149795



Just a few base rules and ettiquite for Pchat:

- Please ask anyone in the room before bombing(erasing) the board. If someone's been working on something for hours, it would suck to lose it because someone was too stupid to ask before bombing.

- Your pretty much allowed to post any drawing you made in PaintChat in here, as long as it's not PORN.

- Make sure to ask if someone's drawing in a specific area, or if there's any free space on the board before you start drawing. When you first enter pchat, you'll start off with what appears to be a completely white space to draw on. Don't be fooled by this; there may be other drawings on the board, but they were drawn before you entered the room so they aren't visible to you.

- Not a rule, more like a little sidenote: in order to save the drawings from a pchat session, you need to hit print screen on your keyboard and paste the resulting screenshot in some sort of image editing software, like Photoshop or GIMP. This is on a PC; on a Mac, just do what you'd normally do to take screenshots.


That's basically it. Pchat isn't as advanced as most other programs, but the servers only go down for a few minutes per day, or whenever there's maintenence, and it's completely browser-based, so you don't host the servers yourself.

If you want to set up a day for a group PChat session, just post a date in this thread and show up if you can. Or just say "I'm in pchat, come join me!" or something similar. Whatever. Just doodle to your heart's desire. As another note, it's also very fun to play games like pictionary or even roleplay in there.:3

If it manages to stay active for a few weeks, it'd be cool if this thread became a sticky.:3 Takamin's been pretty stable, I've been using their pchats for at little over a year now. The servers go down sometimes, but it's usually for maintenence.

This is an infinitely valuable device for sharing art practices and working together, as well as just killing time. I'ma sticky this for the meantime to keep it in the public view.

I'll have to apologize. I have trouble drawing anything in the first place, much less with a mouse. XD

The closest things I can draw to an actual picture are pictographs, so I am the one responsible for all the moonspeak.

I'll be happy to give translations to anyone who cares though.

Tue Sep 11, 2007 7:02 pm

I actually somehow find it comforting that not every single person on the entire forum is an artist.

Tue Sep 11, 2007 7:17 pm

Well, just to give a summary of what it says on there.

It has Kamina saying "Yaranaika?", which is basically "Want to do it?"

Simon is saying, "A--... yarou... aniki...", which is basically, "Ah... let's do it... big bro".

And between them, in large letters, "GATTAI" (combine).

In the upper right corner near Yuki: "Pantsu wa haite masen." "I'm not wearing panties."

And beside the orange-haired girl, "Ano... H (ecchi) kudasai." "Um, please do some perverted things."

Aww wished I could've joined XD!! You guys had so much fun ^^!! Sad my works are all piled up...That's for being lazy hahaha XD

Thu Sep 13, 2007 3:07 pm

Mir@k, you don't need a tablet, I did the super sweet Edward Elric with guns using only my manliness and a old malfunctioning mouse, because I'm THAT Metal.

Thu Sep 13, 2007 3:37 pm

What about people who aren't Metal? Well, I concur wholeheartedly. Seriously, everyone needs to get into this stuff. I mean, it's a chat! Even if you can't draw, you can entertain the artists :P

Oh, and I want to post pretty pictures too!


Bubble girl drawn a certain samurai, the rest by me.

If anyone sees me there, it will be a miracle if I stay more than an hour, because my computer is an ass. But I'll go there sometime.

For those not in the know, if PChat ever dies on you and gives you a blue screen, just refresh the page and type your name into the box again. If it dies and you refresh and it the name entry box doesn't show up, then it's probably maintenence, and will be back up in a few minutes.:3
