ITT: Talk about what "bara" means and what counts as bara and what doesn't.

For me, anything with VERY defined and large muscles, a defined jaw-line, and at least 18+ age classify as bara. Anything less (toned, short, under 18 looking, pointed chin, fem style) i label as yaoi.

And then there are sub categories like chibi bara, furry bara, chubby bara, 3d bara, etc.

My point of view from an english culture. This might be different in asian culture.

For all those years I have been using the term 'bara' myself for everything and anything perceived as 'manly'. The more drastic the comparison to just regular 'male' artwork the better it is. Just compare artists like for instance Mazjojo(Blackmonkey)+Hutoshi Miyako(TomCat) with artists such as SengaMigiri(UGCP)+Jin(Jamboree!)+IchikawaKazuhide(KAZ)etc.

This is just my personal opinion but circles such as TomCat or BlackMonkey I would never ever consider bara at all. Merely applying some "muscles" to an artwork of a "beautiful boy" is just not sufficient enough.

Of course but they all have that 'one thing' in common that differentiates itself from other porn featuring, at the very least, anatomical males. And what that 'one thing' is you can easily guess by either browsing through the content threads on here or simply asking yourself why you've specifically visited barachan and not some other place like 4chan's /y/ or aarinfantasy or yaoiotaku.

I really want to get back into posting bara artwork online, but where's a good community to do so? And by good I mean active and engaged (commenting, requesting, commissioning etc.)
Furaffinity is nice, but I'm really bad at drawing furries and my human artwork doesn't do well there.

I've had a gallery on tumblr before, but I didn't really like how cut off the communication was. I really like reading comments and talking directly with followers but tumblr's design doesn't really work well for that.

I know what you mean. I used to be a part of a forum style art community and it was the best environment for me. I realize that it is outdated and doesn't have the convenience of a gallery but it kept the community from becoming insular. You don't have to be a fantastic artist to be recognized there either. Just post on every thread providing positive comments and helpful advice and you'll gain a good reputation. People would post work in progress for the community to come with technical comments and critiques and you'll see it progress from start to completion. Professional inkers would post line arts and encourages beginners to use them for coloring practice to be re-posted as a collaboration. There were monthly event which was a weird mix of collaboration and competitions. Unfortunately, it was designed as a beginners proving ground and the managably decent so I've outgrown the place.

I feel like tumblr is just an extension of a gallery were professionals posts to advertise their portfolio.

Yo if you're still around, hopefully you read

Judging by what you posted you should be off to a great start on Tumblr assuming you tag your stuff correctly and do plenty of fanart to attract some fans. Open your ask box and don't be an asshat (so people only visit your page to witness your asshattery), be open open stuff, etc. And yeah, no comments, but chances are if you're renewing your online identity you're not getting many comments until you gather a few followers either way. Getting the tag reader on the new XKit extention DOES potentially reveal what people think of your art when they reblog it, though. Also, compared to twitter, your artwork has massive reblogability and doesn't expire in "coolness" the first few minutes you post it.

Furaffinity has had a few exoduses in the last couple of years or so, making it even super slower to garner followers, but it's complementary.

So Twitter would be a good bet seeing your preference for talky stuff. Be sure to draw often on this platform, though, since it's easy for your artwork to drown in millions of other posts your followers might read.

Hello everyone!

French lurker here; I've been wandering on this website for a while now and I'm posting here because of its nice community.

I'm a developer. A game developer too. I learned game development myself and can now create almost anything in 2D. I hate pre-made engines like Unity or UDK. I understand why people use and like them, but I just enjoy building things from scratch, and even if I can't reach a professional engine render myself, it's sweet to have control over your own code.

I tried to build an indie videogame studio with a friend I met during my scholarship, but it didn't worked out quite well, and I lost almost a year of my time and my work. I took it as an experience tho, not good or bad. It simply taught me things.

Now I have a full time job, but I still code and enjoy game creation on my free time. I recently built a nice point and click engine that could be used to create a good-looking game. I planned to use it for a scenario I wrote (bara/erotic/orcish), but couldn't find an artist willing to build that game… Later I decided to release the game's engine for educational purposes, and for it to be used by game makers.
While I continuously work on improving the engine, I'm gonna begin working on the documentation, which is a long task to achieve.

So before doing that (not that I'm just lazy, I prefer to make something with it AND I'm lazy!), I wondered if any of you guys is looking for a developer, or would like to form a team. I'd really enjoy working with people to create something. Even more since my previous failure.

Bonjour à toi ~
Do you have some kind of public account somewhere ? Like Tumblr or a dev account? Any example of the engine (incomplete game or anything) ?

Is it something like this ? (scroll down a bit, right before the "Download" link)
http://baramangaonline.com/eng-scent-bioshock-infinite-the-raw-end-of-the-deal/

Actually I've been figuring out how to create something like the example above but I'm more on art department kind of person so … yeah ..

Not really. I have a profile on Develteam, but I only used it to contact people. Not much to see there.

I attached some screenshots. Since it's just the bare engine the art used is random and the user interface is pretty crappy, thanks to my design skills. I don't think the screenshots show a lot of what you can do with it.

It's not exactly like the game you linked. It's more like old school adventure games filled with riddles solved by items you combine and use. Check out games like Myst, Gabriel Knight, Broken Sword series.

Godspeed with your endeavor. I'm curious. Which coding language(s) will your IDE support? Will your engine be able to publish with a web playable game? Besides point and click, can you perform any other simple input like mouse overs and click and holds? Lastly, does it support sprite animation.

What exactly are you intending to create when you get some people who is willing to draw the assets for you? It would be nice to see a clear intent and goal before anybody would want to sign up especially with what happened the last time this was attempted. Mentioning that it involves bara orcs is a start. Also, admitting that you are lazy doesn't instill much confidence.

Thanks for the support :)

I don't plan to make an IDE for this engine. All levels (backgrounds, examine zones, NPCs and move zones) are all created in Tiled (http://www.mapeditor.org/), a free and open source map editor.

All data not included in map files (like dialogs, sprites, scripts, items, …) are stored in XML files placed in a precise folder tree. I made some tools to edit those files, so instead of having a single software to build the game, you have a few tools. Since I often edit the engine, I update the tools alongside some kind of step in the engine. It's basically just the XML reading/writing part tho.

Since this engine is made with Monogame (http://www.monogame.net/), I can only build for iOS, Android, MacOS, Linux, all Windows platforms, OUYA, PS4, PSVita, and Xbox One. No web compiling is available right now, but the creators are talking about it here and there. Maybe it will happen one day.

The screenshots aren't showing much of the engine as I said earlier, but some inputs are already handled. Of course, it's not that hard to change something or implement a new feature, since I know how the engine works. Grabbable items are available. You can hover over an item, which displays the name of the item beside your cursor, and one click makes you grab it. An inventory pops up when you hover the bottom of the game's window, and you can place your item there to use it later on an NPC or on something else.Post too long. Click here to view the full text.

You are aware of your limitations which is good. What happened last time was was the absence of realistic goals and achievable features. As you have noticed earlier, timezone conflict means that some people miss team meetings. The lack of the managerial position lead to an abundance of artist but with little support on the programming side. Which is what makes me wary if you are the only one knowledgeable of your own engine. But then this would depend on how big your project is gonna be. I asked for the other method of user control because I was wondering if you have considered something small and can be completed in a short amount of time just to showcase what you can do. Something along the lines of a JO games that uses mouseovers, a game with branching dialogue much like the Monthly Manfuls or a dress up game. Content creators won't have to invest too much time drawing assets and there a change you might be able to finish a bara game. If the project falls though, it isn't too much of a waste of time. There is a severe lacking of game devs on the bara side so it's not that hard to stand out and people will seek you out.

There aren't any official art that I've found of the trainers. All I found were screenshots of the models in-game and pretty good fanart, both of which are quite rare.

How are things looking for you guys? I looks very much like Trump is going to get the Republican nomination against REASON. It's the fucking twilight zone in this country, officially. It's gonna be a trip seeing how the presidential debates will go considering the man repeats the same 8 words over and over and has nothing solid on what a Trump presidency will entail.

On the Democratic side I don't know what's going to happen between Sanders and Clinton. I'm rooting for Sanders because Clinton is a moderate republican as she's always been… but Sanders' is not near perfect either. I'm leaning towards Sanders because he is the best candidate but it might also come down to Hilary V Trump.

Let's share our thoughts on the 2016 elections.

So I have to come to bara since I know this is the one place my boyfriend knows I lurk…

We've been together almost 7 years, married and soon will be buying a house. But one that's constantly, and I mean constantly coming up the issue of adoption. I don't want kids, for many reasons I just feel like two men shouldn't raise a child regardless of adoption laws.

Then there is the fact he has a form of blood cancer. And was hospitalized recently and if he dies (which if you've been together long enough, trust me when I say this conversation is normal, not morbid) I'll be single, incur his debt, a child of whatever age and a home.

I'm trying to apply logic to him but it doesn't seem to work. His biological clock is ticking and he wants me to join in on it. I just don't want any part of childcare! And he's moving into guilt territory by saying "it's OK, just remember that every day you wait our daughters birthday will pass and there's another one on the streets."

It's really fucking annoying at this point. And I just don't know to tell him my mind won't change without blatantly saying "Fuck off! It's not going to happen!"

Bara please for fucks sake help. I can't take this shit anymore.

See the last sentence in my first response in your current fictional thread. I love being right. Its hard being me and being right so consistently.

I'm actually very happy to hear this story is a fake because it would be devastating if the any state decided to place a child with someone in this situation and with your mindset. Thankfully there's a long and arduous and costly process for adoption and most of the unfit are weeded out. Poor kid would be going from the frying pan to the fire.

There are other ways to 'have children' than to actually have children. When I was 16 I had some kind of insanely strong urge to have children, even though logically I knew I couldn't possibly support one. Luckily that feeling subsided when my niece was born.
But if I didn't I had already started researching different ways to emulate parenting….. sounds weird, there has to be a better way to say that…… ANYWAY. There are certain programs that you can volunteer for that would place a newborn in your care. These newborns are sometimes being put up for adoption, and sometimes the biological parents aren't 100% ready to take their child home, so the volunteers take care of the babies temporarily, as if they were their own baby. (obviously there's training and screening and things involved before you can do that)

There's also big brother programs and other things for slightly older children. So the point is that there are ways that you can both win. You don't have to lock yourself into an 18 year journey to experience parenthood, and he can still foster children.
Also, how about a pet? Kittens are like babies that grow into teenagers when they become cats. And dogs are like perma-babies. It's not really the same, but they are nice.

There is no way of knowing for sure. From what the mods say, OP from this thread and OP from >>4653 have the same IP address. I'm not sure if this is the user's dynamic or static IP address, but in both cases it's quite possible for multiple users to have the same IP address, even if it's somewhat unlikely.

In either case, though, whether or not OP made that other thread, this one is useful to have regardless because it talks about adoption and the conditions necessary for it to happen properly. It's likely there are others on here who may have also considered adoption, or who may have the same reservations as OP, and so this kind of discussion is helpful in figuring out how to go about evaluating the topic, discussing it with your partner, going through the process, etc. Derailing it out of spite towards the OP will do nobody any favors.
