I'm trying to make myself a quote poster on my computer.

Ooh, are there prizes of we know who the quotes are by? xD (no google-ing/cheating allowed of course!)

 

I recognise one from The Dispossessed /Ursula le Guin, one from Douglas Adams / Hitchiker's Guide (I think?), the 'armour yourself' one is Stoic, either Epictetus or Marcus Aurelius, but I can't remember which! (I'm gonna say Epictetus, final answer!)

Sure :D
You're right about two out of three. The third one is George RR Martin. I have no ancient philosophers on the board I'm afraid. The oldest one is from 1847 :D

There's one from David Mitchell's Cloud Atlas, which also occurs in the movie. One is very, very easy, from the Shawshank Redemption. One is from Carl Sagan.

That quote is so unforgettable, Season 1, Episode 1 ! xD

@TheThing lol that error message, where did you get that?

I found it on the internet, public domain image, I don’t know where though... one of the vaporwave people in the Amino community found it. Can’t remember where.

I made an art series I guess! It’s making photos with art. Well, it is part way though with lots more coming over the holiday break! (Thank goodness, I have finished for the year! Now time to focus on art.) dcttf9k-304548aa-e838-4d5b-8f59-e5bc4fb4testing_things_by_foreverforestthing_dctdcuso6n-4ab1229a-8b24-4ec6-8159-0454ea69lone_school_iepling__two_out_of_three__blonely_school_iepling__three_out_of_thredcuso0d-8abf9992-f013-4790-b446-45cdae82

A drawing I made because I admire and love Keith's and Shiro's (brotherly) bond in Voltron Legendary Defender

And some plants in traditional fashion (with their scientific names)

I made a couple of aro dragons a while back but I'm too scared and paranoid of the internet to post them right now. other than that I have some other dragons that I'm also too paranoid to post.

I also can't figure out how to put images on here so there's that.

@awkwardchickenpotatodragon I uploaded the images I want to show to an external platform,  e.g. here, and then just clicked (lower right corner)"Insert other media" -> "Insert image from URL". The photo should appear in the post then. There is probably another way but I'm a noob with forums.
I'd really like to see some of your dragons (I love dragons) but I understand your feeling of discomfort. It took me quite some time to be comfortable with sharing my scribbles.
Just to say, I don't think anybody will laugh or devaluate your works.

@NotHeartless Thanks! If I do end up posting something I'll do that!

It's less that I'm concerned about what other people think, it's just that I have a weird paranoia that someone will track the picture back to me in real life, despite the fact that the pictures I want to show I have not posted anywhere else.
