Thank you for another year.

On behalf of the 2019 executive team we would like to congratulate you on finishing finals and the conclusion of another academic term. With this comes a goodbye as well from the 2019-2020 executive team. We would like to thank you for the wonderful year, from heroes and villains at Halloween, icing gingerbread men at Christmas, finding your knight at Valentine’s (via otome game style) and finally the wonderful memories from our weekly events.

We would like to thank each member of the 2019-2020 executive team for their hard work, creativity and time. We would also like to thank every volunteer and everyone who made it possible. With that, we wish you all well and welcome the new 2020-2021 executive team.

Valentine’s Social 2020 Recap

Akira (CV: Cole) is at last united with one of the members of the hivemind otomes who completed his route.

A huge thanks to everyone who came and participated! It was an amazing experience, and we hope that you felt the same. We really tried switching things up significantly this time, so we’re really keen to hear your thoughts on how it went. Feedback on how this event was received is really important to us, since club reception is what decides if we repeat something like this again!

Artist meetup Drawpile tutorial

We will now be hosting a Drawpile session during every weekly artist meetup that isn’t a workshop/event! Participation is completely optional. You can also join remotely from the comfort of your own home! Just keep a lookout for the room code and password in the #art-discussion channel of our club Discord when artist meetups start at 5PM.

Drawpile is a software that allows multiple artists to draw simultaneously, real-time, on the same digital canvas.  This will be a simple tutorial on how to get set up.

What you need:
– Computer with internet connection
– A method of drawing on said computer of your choice, e.g. graphics tablet or mouse.
*Currently does not work on mobile devices.

  1. Make sure you have the latest version of Drawpile.
    Download it from the website. To our knowledge, older versions don’t work!
  2. Click Session > Join.

3. In the popup window, type the 5 letter room code that execs will put on the projector and in the #art-discussion channel of our Discord server.

4. You will be prompted to enter a password, which will be projected alongside the room code.

5. There are layers and brush controls like most digital drawing programs. Have fun!
