Tripcodes are a way to identify yourself between posts without having to register with the site. To use a tripcode, enter your name as ‹name›#‹key›.You can choose anything you want as the key—it is private and will never be shown to other posters or stored on the server. For example:

Rarity#bestpony → Rarity!.4PK7yxdII

If you want a tripcode containing specific words, you can download a program designed to search for tripcodes, such as Tripcode Explorer.


Entering an e-mail is optional.

There are also code words you can enter here which perform certain actions when you submit your post.

  • sage — lets you post without bumping a thread.
  • nonoko — uses the original post behavior to redirect to the board index.

These can be used at the same time as an e-mail address by typing ‹email›#‹action›.

You can also use Skype names in place of an e-mail. The notation is the same as a link to a username on skype itself, which is skype:‹username›

And I was looking forward to seeing your art

I really want to encourage you and help you out, but I have to be honest. that's not a painting, it's just 3 smears of paint. I get what you were going for, a minimalist approach involving the 3 primary colors. but the shapes are not even coherent.

painting involves doing some linework too. getting the basic guidelines for your composition down helps a lot. I've used a projector for this purpose a few times. then you can paint in layers. an underpainting with dark colors, blacks. let that dry, go over it again with brighter colors. it looks great, you'll see. but you need an actual composition to work on!

I hope you're painting still life and stuff in class! Representational work will always be better received. Don't buy into the lies of minimalism and abstraction.

Good luck, don't give up! and remember, art takes time. a lot of time. don't just mess around for ten minutes and call it done. that's just a warmup, and will help you make something better afterward. but it takes time and effort to produce something worthwhile.
