Hi, I am getting error messages when I try to send a completed Chibi paint drawing. I made the above noodle in Shi - that one seems to work for me. Is anyone else having this issue?

This is the error message I am getting:
Robert Lorayn @ Wednesday, August 12th 2015, 11:38 PM
so here's the story:

Java has updated its crossdomain security policy requiring a higher level of control on the server itself. I ran into this issue myself a couple months back so i'm trying to recall what the details were.

Basically right now java will try to establish connection to the IP of the server but without explicit approval in the server's crossdomain.xml file it won't allow it to create a connection. While we might have some crossdomain control at the domain name, we dont (as far as i know through our hosting service) have it at the IP level.

The fix, where server control isn't possible, is to downgrade java to before it instituted this policy. I want to say that version is 7.25- but i'm running on months old fleeting memories.

Unfortunately not ideal, but i hope it makes sense.

Thanks for the info, Robert. Am happy to report that I just switched to LinuxMint and their IcedTea-Web plugin handles Chibi with no dysfunctions that I can see. Am looking forward to some CCDS fun outside the increasingly unbearable Windows environment!

Love this.
Also, I bet we're neighbors.

Thanks, and possibly!

I really dislike these towers, we have them here in mall parking lots. Wish I could just drive them off a cliff. Sorry for taking it out on your picture.

Some drawings are motivated by love and some by other emotions -- that's all I am at liberty to say.

I always love the way you shade things. Here I like the skull-like seams on a few of the 'ventricles'. Thanks for this

Is this the end of Spider-Man?

Mary Scahill @ Tuesday, July 2nd 2013, 2:10 AM
is this edible?
Tom Moody @ Wednesday, July 3rd 2013, 10:59 AM
Before you asked that I would have said this was the least edible thing on the Web. Now I'm not sure.

that pastel pink makes it pretty peaceful (personally).

nice brushing techniques! :-)

Thanks - I like these Chibi brushes (pen and watercolor).

so good, you make awesome blobs.
Tom Moody @ Wednesday, March 13th 2013, 1:42 PM
Thanks, your use of the stripe pattern got me thinking about ways to punch up this drawing.

Thanks - "gunnera" in Google Images gives you an explosion of green but only one stealthy cat.

Something about this drawing makes the plant look... predatory?

thanks - as far as I know it's not ingesting whole Namibians.
Sara Ludy @ Sunday, July 1st 2012, 5:32 PM
I bet you could make a good gunnera drawing
Tom Moody @ Monday, July 2nd 2012, 11:09 PM
Will attempt one - Wikipedia has a good choice of models posing with gunnera leaves.

Ha ha well I hope he knows his webcam theatre has made him a dump meme (I'm sure he does).

Pixar just emailed: they're interested.
Tom Moody @ Sunday, May 13th 2012, 12:44 AM
This was supposed to say "modification of a drawing by Michael Manning" but I resized it to 500 x 500 and lost everything, including the attribution.
Tom Moody @ Sunday, May 20th 2012, 10:43 AM
The above comments apply to an earlier version of this drawing.

"This is....ATHENSSSSS!" cried the young artists.
Michael Manning @ Wednesday, May 23rd 2012, 8:24 PM
nah we'd be all like "THIS IS SPARTA"
Tom Moody @ Wednesday, May 23rd 2012, 11:00 PM
That was supposed to be a This Is Sparta joke.
Tom Moody @ Wednesday, May 23rd 2012, 11:33 PM
Was thinking about a "It's Only Humanist"-style essay that considers "300" as the dark side of Greek New Media, "expressing young filmmakers' yearning for manly virtue and ancient rituals of violence in the disconnected, affectless time of the Internet. In contrast to the aestheticized holistic beauty favored by the Athenians, The Spartans' CGI abs and pecs conjure a warrior cult of the body: free-floating signifiers of sweaty buffness but also a grotesque cyborg 'skinning' of the human form."

There are many applications to fuzzyballs, one of which could create a slicker substance than teflon. A fully fluorinated buckyball would create the slickest molecular lubricant known to man, C60F60.

Sara Ludy @ Tuesday, March 6th 2012, 2:08 PM
This drawing has been sitting in the back of my mind ever since you posted it. It is so bizarre and stunning. The colors remind me of an old botanical illustration.
Tom Moody @ Wednesday, March 7th 2012, 1:08 PM
Thanks, Sara. The feedback is much appreciated. Some of my favorite science fiction stories deal with far-future worlds where plants have mutated into quasi-sentient life, e.g, Hothouse by Brian Aldiss. I'm glad if any of that weirdness is getting across.

Robert Lorayn @ Tuesday, February 28th 2012, 1:45 AM
love this. Especially that blue and its smudges.
Tom Moody @ Tuesday, February 28th 2012, 11:44 PM
Thanks - I can't really say why but I like Chibi Paint smears more than Photoshop smears.
Robert Lorayn @ Thursday, March 1st 2012, 12:58 AM
To tell the truth I'd never actually used photoshops smear tool at all. These applets were the first time I'd tried them out. Which is probably why I use them so much now. In any case I really envy your color choices.
Tom Moody @ Thursday, March 1st 2012, 9:28 AM
Thanks, re: the color. Chibi's smears handle more like paint than Adobe's -- Photoshop just sort of averages the difference between smeared and unsmeared and then makes you really work to drag the "average" around the screen. The end result looks exactly like what you did - drag some average around the screen. (Maybe it's just the versions of Photoshop I use that come bundled with a scanner or printer, but I doubt it.)
Duncan Alexander @ Tuesday, April 17th 2012, 9:39 PM
I hadn't seen this one before. Warped wires piercing flimsy goop of some sort... Nice. The difference in "medium" really makes it.

Adam Sammons @ Sunday, February 19th 2012, 4:49 AM
the texture is great
Tom Moody @ Monday, February 20th 2012, 9:39 AM
Thanks - halfway through it started turning into 1950s medical illustration and I just went with it.

Robert Lorayn @ Sunday, February 12th 2012, 5:25 PM
this is really great, like it a lot.
Tom Moody @ Monday, February 13th 2012, 9:36 AM
