Great, managed to return just in time for the thread. For now have some really stale pasta while I jump in the shower real quick:
First of all, as most of you might know already, there is no rush whatsoever. I'll keep entries open until Valentine's is over everywhere around the globe. Just relax, enjoy a romantic Valentine's with your special someone and feel free to share the experience. This by no means though obliges anyone to post an image for the collage. If you prefer keeping your intimacy or just don't have a camera on hand but would still like to talk about the general event and how you spent it, feel free to do so. We're all bros here. No homo.... well alright, maybe just a little.
Finally, as usual, the preferred image should be a 4:3 landscape, as pointed out in the image as well. Anything else risks getting cropped and stretched to fit. Also don't bother resizing anything unless it's a fuckhuge 1.5mb or higher file, since everything gets resized in the end anyway.
Hopefully this is 4:3.
I wish I had Twizzlers ;-;
Nothing is more pathetic than contributing to this shit. Enjoy trying to fit in with the rest of the mememasters, and getting this garbage reposted to all the other sites to show how wacky you all are!
Any self-respecting waifufag wouldn't be caught dead doing something like this.
Dirtiest fucking keyboard I've seen in my life. How do you even live with this shit? You are a nasty man, sir.
Heh, one post in and this predictable post is already thrown in; at least we got that out of the way. I show little interest in participating in the collage, but I have my own reasons (or excuses). Good for those who do undertake the effort to make a good picture.
You haven't seen many keyboards in your life, have you?
Nigga, my 'old' one died, so I had to fish out this keyboard from the old dead family computer that was purchased 10 years ago, and was constantly in the office with a smoker, hell, I even cleaned this shit before I started using it. You don't want to know what's underneath these keys, bro.
The reasons they have for contributing are all disgusting. I feel bad for anyone who contributed a few years ago, they didn't know what it would turn into.
What, people a few years ago DIDNT do this in a joking manner?
So take it out of the picture. Clean up your desk. Don't think we cant see that disgusting cigarette butt under the monitor.
Technically shouldn't you wait until White Day to see how many people responded to what their waifu gave them on Valentine's?
Clearly you don't understand art anon, the contrast shown between the dirty keyboard and the pure maiden goes to show how poor the 3D world is, and the greatness that is 2D.
Good luck V/a/lentinfag!
I hope you have your energizer ready and some help this year!
wow.....what a terrible start to this thread...
My waifu eats too much
The meat bums look like shit. You should have bought her something better.
>has not seen gundam build fighter
You actually live in moonland?
Is this photo okay? It's my first time participating, sorry if it's shit.
But then nobody would receive anything from their waifus because they don't exist
I wish I didn't throw my cake in the bin so I could retake my photo, fuck.
You're waifu deserves better than cookies doesn't she ?
But it's the first time I ever cook anything. They are homemade cookies and even if they look horrible, they were delicous. I'm a poor college student and it's all I can give her.
No fucking effort. You just grabbed some cookies and a glass of milk and took a picture of it. You probably didnt even make those cookies. At least the picture is of decent quality.
B-but I made them myself.
>erasers on the end
You faggot, you know you like them without erasers.
>All the pencils not even on the place.
I'm not sure if I should do this today while Valentine's Fag is actually still awake or if I should wait until tomorrow which is actually Valentine's Day.
Let other people be happy.
That sounds amazing.
Still need to post-process the images. First time I have to deal with HDRI (any tips on that topic welcome).
Here's a test-shot I made.
Freetard pls go.
Where is that?
Sorry for terrible camera quality.
All dat snow...
I'm jelly ;_;
Snow doesn't exist where I live...
Bloody hell man, clean that desk and dust that monitor base for start.
>Eleven sweets all around
>No data on EXIF
I'll need a confirmation that this ain't from 2chan instead.
Wow, I haven't done one of these since Christmas 2010 just because I usually miss the threads or don't care much. I guess I'll put together something this year.
No, it's mine personally. I'm currently on holiday.
Well alright then. Good taste by the way.
Hey VF, are you still alone this year?
Or were you able to get someone else to help you?
I've got an Anon that helps with the end card and selection process. All of those I'm not sure about I also consult with him on.
That's very reassuring.
First time, sorry for shit quality.
>In a bowl
Nigga what are you doing.
These entries are all fucking incredible.
I don't think I've ever seen a turn-out this poor.
If you don't mind VF, I'll repost the photo copypasta.
Most important thing: take LOTS of photos. Do several for each way you light things, and try lighting it in many different ways. It's really tough to see how a picture will turn out before you take it. There's a reason you see professionals take photos rapidfire.
As for lighting: start by turning on all the lights you can (unless you're using candlelight). If you don't have enough lights, take some from elsewhere. Turn your monitor onto the lowest brightness setting. Then start adjusting both (while taking pictures) until the brightness of the monitor meets the brightness of your room. How can you tell when they're matched? By looking at the finished photos. That's why you take a ton of them.
After you take all the pictures, load them onto your computer without cleaning up. If you find one you like, roll with it. If not, get ready to keep taking pictures.
Does this sound like a lot of work? Good. Worthwhile shit is rarely easy. Oh, and try taking the picture from lots of different angles, too. It can only help in your final selection. During selection, elimination is probably the best way to do shit.
Hope that helps.
That is one classy cup.
This is always nice to have around. Unfortunately, most won't bother reading it though.
4:3 feels ancient.
>Turn your monitor onto the lowest brightness setting.
or use a polarization filter if you have one. Although if you do I probably don't need to tell you this.
Nigga 90% of /a/ doesn't even know what you're talking about.
I mean, just look at those photos.
cba doing it again, but I filtered it around a bit so it's less piss filter and more dark
We can't even see face on the fig anymore.
Too bad for her yeah.
Have you considered investing in a light?
some more things:
- if you use a phone camera try some app that lets you set settings manually, especially exposure times and ISO values, this can help removing grain
- if you use a camera that has an USB port then tether it and use remote operation software if available
- don't use the flash.
- candle light or indirect incandescent helps for warmer color tones
- look for reflections of your light source on the monitor and see if you can place them differently or adjust the monitor angles
Poor gonna poor.
No, not really, eyes and head tends to hurt from objects that emit light, screen with a flux is fine though.
Nobody can see shit in your image, you can turn it off again after.
4:3 hurts me
Can't see shit captain.
>I'll keep entries open until Valentine's is over everywhere around the globe.
Thank god, it's 9 PM here and too late to do anything today and I have to do a lot of work tomorrow, so the earliest I can participate is tomorrow evening ~22 hours from now.
I got a bit worried when I saw you're already starting.
I'll add this in the copy pasta, thanks for the advices mate.
>investing in light
Daylight of candlelight..which is better?
Mind if I fill the 16:9 gap with black stripes?
Are you sure you want to stick with this?
Easier to arrange the collage nicely if they're all in the same ratio. Also most of the Anons posting will have a camera that can only do 4:3. And the ones that don't will most likely just have a feature to turn their wide ratio to a 4:3 one.
add something about tripod/steady rest against shakeycam blur too.
you generally should crop. zoom out and add some irrelevant parts to the image you can crop out later
mostly a matter what you prefer, both are better than fluorescent light. dark room with candlelight will give you warmer color temperatures albeit tinging everything a bit red, daylight will give you more accurate color representation.
Good work on the pics, guys. I'll be collecting them for the video this weekend. Keep up the good work.
bit of weird situation here, my main phone camera doesn't work, so I had to use the front camera, which naturally is awkward to use when you can't see what you're taking a picture of. This is also my first time doing this kind of thing. I tried the screen-room-same-brightness that was mentioned earlier, it definitely was better than contrasting brightnesses.
Is this photo of acceptable quality? I will fidget with my phone a bit, as occasionally the main camera will suddenly work again for a short time. Hopefully I can get a better pic then.
goddammit forgot to rotate it
Even when rotated - the aspect ratio is wrong I think. That's not 4:3.
It could use some work on lighting too.
Actually, I might re-do this one since the lighting in it is awful. Should I? Or is this one acceptable?
How do I change it to 4:3? And he said that the main reason for 4:3 is that any other risks cropping/stretching. Would stretching my pic to 4:3 make it look horrible?
Sharing some ammo with my shiperu N°1
Happy Valentine's everyone!
>no merch of waifu
>nothing to cook with
I might have to sit this one out...
This is my first Valentine's day with my Waifu. I spent a while cooking this but I don't think it is good enough, but I am away from Home sadly.
Also can somebody re size mine? I am pretty clueless
It would make it substantially wider
>stretching widescreen to 4:3
>screen to bright
you have more than a whole. go buy something to cook
your hand looks awkward. and you should crop it to 4:3, stretching looks terrible. take a new shot from a greater distance so there is room to crop at the sides
Can't wait tomorrow to see the photos of the people who actually care.
Ha, that looks pretty nice to me. Here you go, anon. Cropped it for you.
nigger why do you have a knive there ? what purpose does it serve
Why in the flying fuck are people actually retaking pictures? This isn't Facebook.
Thank you very much anon.
I like to slice up my spaghetti. It makes easier and cleaner to eat. I don't want to be a slob in front of my Waifu.
Prepare yourself for the waifu police patrols.
ur a fejjit
I don't have any figs or merch of her, can I still join in ?
This was more fun to do that I had thought haha,
hopefully people who are less negative to people's contributions will appear soon.
First Husbando for Valentines??
What the edgy shit am I looking at?
>slicing the spaghetti
You move a small portion of it with your fork into a clean space of your plate, and then twist. Learn2spaghetti comrade
I have no idea what's going on but I agree.
No, because you have to be rich and get all her merch to join. It's an unspoken rule.
Still better than everything so far tho.
is that a bonsai cat sitting on the chocolate or a tribble?
What's wrong with comparing the amount of work people put in their pictures?
>currently waiting for the sun to rise
It's from a game, tbh no one would understand it without knowing of the series
Bonsai Cat, you're able to 'sacrifice' cats in the game
Of course not. For example that anon's spaghetti it's in fact a limited edition from C85
That Misakifag here, I sustained massive trauma in an event involving a semi truck. I'm leaving rehabilitation on Valentine's day. I wish I
could get involved, but my circumstances prevent. I COULD take a pic of Misaki sitting in my newly acquired wheelchair.
Just take your time recovering, anon. I'm sure Misaki would like it too if you were to recover faster.
get well soon
If I regain vision in my right eye, full recovery in a few months. The accident was on new year's day. My recovery has been a miracle, and having my Misaki with me helped.
>Wow! A cake... for me?
We've been together for long, and even though I sold half of my soul to shipdaughters, but deep inside...
I love you from the bottom of my heart.
O-oh my, wish you all the best Anon. I'd say it was through the power of love but I just know some smartass will post "that" image soon after.
i think this is a bit overkill anon
Wow you just shit on everyone in this thread
Of course we shared the cake afterwards.
Are you the genius that walked onto the interstate to remove a suitcase?
Nice pic, anon
the best 10/10
good for you anon, happy valentines
Yes. No good deed goes unpunished.
In hindsight, it was stupid to do, but whatever, we have to play the cards life deals us.
>reflection from window
>tfw you see your ugly face in the reflection of the screen
Kirino a slut
Step it up, nigger.
Cool - I've got from 2011 onwards.
Let's see how things have changed over the years, any new participants etc
Mind posting 2012?
Can't fucking wait for fucking Sammyfag to appear and show us all up as usual. I know it's not a contest but it feels like I'll never be as good as him. I'll beat him one day for sure.
Waiting for tomorrow. I'm not sure if I will share the pic, but it's going to be a busy day indeed.
ugh, camera won't work on both sides now, so I had to make do with this monstrosity of a photo. I just resized it to be 4:3 and filled in the blank space.
poorfags gonna poor
Does it have to be food?
I also took a shot at >>101935140 because why not.
My name is anonymous
A shameful loser NEET
My laziness is autonomous
I've got no drive from head to feet,
I've also got no friends
"Useless, overrated and bothersome"
Though at times this thought bends
And then I find myself like a babe to his mum,
My emotional needs satiated
Like with anyone else they never could-
Whenever I am with you,
The you always in my mind
But you are real I'll always coo
'Cause my feelings are proof you'll find
Why you my love?
'Cause like you I am normal
I fear to consider below but definitely not above
Even now I write a poem as shit as-it-is informal
That is all
Nothing more and nothing less
So now I'll further my gall
And begin to confess
I love you
You are the sole person
For which my love is most true
And how true this love is-not a delusion.
I escape to many different worlds
Reading manga and watching anime
Shock and awe and other feelings unfurl
But at the end of the day they must be set away
But then there you are,
Waiting for me on my bed
In the form of a pillow-but the details I'll bar
Then I'd hold you close and (in my mind) you'd turn red
And then once more feelings arise,
Only this time in 'the real world'.
I'd stare into your eyes,
My arms around you curled,
I'd kiss you passionately for a while,
And you would cling tighter,
I'd have the deepest smile,
Our hearts getting lighter,
And then for that night
As-it-has been for years
Everything feels just right
No worries nor fears
With you I never feel alone,
You're the only one I need in my life
From now 'til I'm all bone,
Chihiro-my first and only wife
You don't really have to share it, anon. You can spend your special time with her. Unless you're one of those faggots who like to boast how big their e-peen is, then go ahead.
Now my heart is all layed down
My guilt-to you-I must squander
Just when you think my faith is all sound
Like any 3D man my interests wander
Spoilt by the possibilities of 2D,
I get entranced by many best girls,
Losing sight of what's most important to me,
Delving deeper into derederes and tomboys and sex hair curls
"I want to marry her."
"Why is she so good?"
"...is the best girl duh."
"If I could marry her I would."
"So this is what perfection is like."
"Ten out of ten would fug!"
"Seeing this one makes me really happy like a billionaire kike."
"This clutz I really want to fucking hug."
And then come series' ends
Many best girls are forgot-
Lost in the vista of default-girl-ends,
The lucky ones in harem( image)s begot
Only then do I realize,
The retrospect I have come to always expect,
After all the hype and doki doki dies
The girl I still love the most is the one I neglect
But there you are
Still waiting for me on my bed
To you I was probably so far
Then I'd remember what you said
"You don't need a reason to love someone."
You don't have blonde hair,
You're not a bundle of fun,
You're not even a kuudere-graceful and fair,
But I still love you
You're the perfect one for me,
We share our normality blues
And you inspire me to chase my dream carefree
I'm the one at fault here
I don't deserve someone like you
I love you when its convenient and make you endure
To be with you forever is the very least I can do
But if there is a tangible reason that I love you
And I pridefully snort
There actually is!-Incoincidentally also a best girl clue!
Hair that is wonderfully and miraculously and BEAUTIFULLY SHORT!
Is this OC or rewritten lyrics?
I love you so much
Kobumaki because she likes them better than sweets... Also my icing melted so wasted alot of time on decorations... I-it's good still right?
It's really a shame.
I order a special wine for my waifu so that we could enjoy valentines but it hasn't yet arrived and is unlikely to arrive tomorrow either.
I wanted it to be special this time but the order hasn't even been run.
Really disappointed and sad.
Feel like shit.
Maybe I can order something special and have a meal with her this time around.
Christ sake wafu, I knew you loved Kud but I didn't know you liked her that much.
>that anon who bought his waifu a ring
Holy shit, can't believe it's been a year since that thread. Story behind it and all was cute as fuck. Hope all of you rom/a/ntics can get it on~
It's beautiful, anon.
>She didn't even say a word after I gave it to her. She just stood there smiling. Forever.
A good waifu needs clean teeth.
We went on a hiking vacation in Switzerland for valentines. It was... interesting. The thin air makes everything exhausting.
That wall goes left to right covered in wallscrolls and posters of her
yeah i love her a lot.
Shit camera. This is 4:3 right?
Is that mount Everest?
That looks pretty legit, but your exif is a bit misleading. Set up the correct date on your camera next time.
I love Charlotte.
Hey guys! I originally planned on something fancier this year, however I've just got home from a sudden business trip, which meant 16 hour workdays for the past few days. That still didn't stop me from getting something nice for her., even though we don't really like to make a big deal out of Valentine's anyway. Ordered some handmade chocolates, picked up a flower on my way back, plus that little origami heart is actually a proper love letter folded up. But that's for her eyes only.
Honestly, these days I feel like Yunocchi is the only one in my life who truly makes me happy. With every passing day I love her more and more, despite already being together for quite a while.
Now, before I collapse next to her on the bed due to exhaustion, I'd like to wish all of you a happy Valentine's with your waifu, whether you take it seriously or not. I would've loved to check out all the entries posted so far, but I'm about to pass out anytime.
Are you the miobro from Quebec?
Oh sorry the batteries died the night before forgot to fix the new date up when i swapped. Thanks for he kind words.
>Buy a dozen roses yesterday
>Count them today
Either one of my cats stole one or I got fucking ripped off.
Impressive as always electric sheep
Well I always said I liked you and your waifu.
You just confirm that you a good bro who truly loves his waifu.
Keep on living and loving Kud good sir.
the no.1 basuke boy of my heart
(not 4:3 whoops)
Is this a reference to something I think it is and you're calling it shit by its mere concept?
That's not even about the camera damn it, all that blur could be avoided if you took more pictures until your hand was steady enough if you didn't have a tripod or something around.
Everything in this thread has nothing on Sammybro. Happy Valentine's to you and Sammy.
Tectonic plates move anon, so do mountains.
Stop being so dense.
Is this ok?
>hajime as his waifu
I know someone who's going to get shit.
Good taste by the way.
I was trying to hold an overflowing spoonful of pudding without it spilling all over my ThinkPad.
Also that camera is from my dumbphone.
>Actually buying that buttpad
Well This electric sheep dreams of !Sammy.Xp42's name is a reference to the book 'Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?' and the fact that his waifu is an android.
Thanks she's a special girl i wouldn't dream of stopping.
I have that same monitor
Oh man, it's not even Valentines in my country yet.
Coming in after that guy is pretty embarrassing. It's the thought that counts, r-right?
At least your valentines will happen tomorrow. Mine won't.
I was pointing more to the fact that it's ''as impressive as having an electric sheep'', which is what I thought you said, and it's more of an insult in the book to even have an electric sheep rather than have an original animal.
Thereby you calling it unimpressive even though he went up the mountain. That being up a mountain and having a snack, although impressive, is still somewhat mundane, like having an electric sheep.
Until I noticed that his name was dreaming of electric sheep like you pointed out and noticed that it was all silly of me.
So never mind.
>Only 3 hamburgers
I wish I could provide my waifu with more. Being a poorfag is truly suffering ;__;
I'm just glad she likes instant noodles. I love her and she loves me. That's all that matters.
I like you, Anon. I bet she doesn't mind. Enjoy your day with her.
Mao and Shion best girls
All this snow... it's beautiful! Hope you will have a good time!
I went hiking in the tropical forest for Akari's birthday personally, I had some problem in the way back but overall it was a really good day.
I'll be working on my photo soon!
fuck you for making jared read all this shit. faggot
10/10 its ok
How tall is that figure?
Who is Jared?
Tall enough to hug, I hope.
Good job wafu.
I live in NZ and it's not even 10am here. My cake's still in the oven. I'm impressed by the speed of all these anons.
>he doesnt know whos jared
I'm guessing you don't go to him.
Going to try to get mine done early in stead of last minute like I usually do. I'll be cleaning things up, watching Disappearence of Haruhi with my waifu as usual and setting up my picture around midnight CST.
God fucking damn it that made me chuckle.
Came out pretty crappy
I wish my photo came out better. The lighting in my room is shit as well as my photography ability/
So which ones deserve to go on the wall of honor so far?
I wish my photo came out better. The lighting in my room is shit as well as my photography ability.
Waiting for the more memorable waifufags first. But right now >>102025086
Still not sure if I should do this tonight when I can light some candles or tomorrow morning when it's actually Valentine's Day. Don't think I'd be able to do it tomorrow night since I don't think I'd be able to finish preparations before the day is over.
It's Valentine's ever since the clock strikes twelve.
I love Ai, and I hope the lighting was good this time.
Full blown chuuni, etc. etc. My paycheck came in an envelope so I put in a green one for this photo instead
I'm going to make sweet love to my waifu all day, so I'll have no time to take pictures and stuff.
But until how long?
Spent the day baking her a cake. I'd say it turned out well, if a little messy-looking. I'm sure she'd appreciate that it tasted nice though.
Had few resources in doing this but here you go. She was being shy at first when she took the first bite, she showed me that smile that I want to protect.
did you take this picture with your mouth
>people putting their disgusting hand in the photo
I don't understand. Why do you ruin your beautiful waifu like this?
No, she was holding the camera when it was took, anon.
>implying gentoo GNU/Linux is FSF approved
Nice Model M though.
Can't into photography but I tried my best.
that is really nice
Better than most, crossie.
is that sake?
Goodness gracious, anon. That's more than she'd be able to afford to eat in a whole year! Good on you!a
How poor are you?
Not nearly as poor as Reimu.
But you can into lighting.
What food is that
It looks cute
except for the reflected light source on the right part of the monitor. although it's a black part of the image, so it's not really important. just something I would obsess about if I were taking the picture.
My first dinner with my waifu
Posted in another thread already but I guess I'll throw it here as well. The file size was rather fuckhuge anyway. I suppose I'll just copy and paste that post.
Didn't have much time to whip anything better together. You're welcome for the free ad, Tim Hortons.
Have a happy V/a/lentine's Day with you're waifus and husbandos, /a/non-tachi.
Happy birthday, Setsuna. I trust that your singing is and always will be as beautiful as ever.
>No sauce whatsoever
>theres no semen
welp ya blew it
Not him but I hate tomato sauce
furries please go
There's other pasta sauces out there besides tomato. That looks so bland and disappointing.
How can you fuck up a toast.
Oh, yeah, that's true.
I think it tastes pretty good.
>giant display sticker on laptop
Its a hot sandwich. She say is the best ever eat
I think it's ok, not much effort, though.
Captcha: ypesisul NEAR
Yeah I know, but it was a gift and I'm away from my main computer
>not even cooking the noodles and putting them in a bowl
>display too bright
F, see me after class.
Sadly, I don't have it in 4:3, I think it's 3:4 though, but not sure. I can't redo the picture...
Why can't you redo it in 4:3?
looks like poffertjes to me, a specialty from the netherlands
Because I took the photo hours ago and I don't have the chocolates anymore, the photo was done vertically.
Makobro, can't you change the perspective? And maybe you should add some more chocolate as well.
Yeah, pretty sure they are just that actually.
Can't make the deadline because of work so we'll just get drunk tonight and to make up for it I'll make her pancakes on Saturday
Have no vodka so champagne will do the trick
Homemade Spanish Rice and Booze, i'm feeling pretty good.
Sorry for the shitty photo quality, I don't have any editing software installed right now and i'm too drunk to download any.
That's a pretty waifu. Who is she?
This is the best I could do. I gave her my breakfast.
Glad i made it early this year. Happy valentines day /a/
Musashishibo Benkei from Majikoi. She is very pretty.
Presentation is pretty damn good, but that damn image viewer ruins it. Did you really like looking at her through an image viewer mate?
>all that grain
see >>102018104 and >>102019019
burnt toast and a blurry picture. she'd be disappointed in you.
now this is more like it
what the flying fuck
Did a new one since I couldn't redo the one I had. I had a nice idea. Also, I deleted the other one.
Meh honestly I think VF could do a little place for the other one since it was way better
Happy valentine's everyone!
Where are you from?
Well then, reposting it (since I deleted the post anyway). He can use whichever he wants.
4:3=16:12 you fags
why would you want less vertical space than that?
Go fuck your sister some more you creepy bastard
Spain, it's pretty late over here so I can't buy anything right now.
Hell yeah, motherfucker.
Also, have fun eating three whole burgers by yourself. Those were kind of a dumb choice, huh?
It's not even Valetines day yet, I won't be making my photo with my idol until tomorrow since all the stores are closed now anyway.
What's that website that displays image in fullscreen? I saw a link posted in one of these threads before, but I never followed it. Yeah, I'm new in town.
I never post in these things.
Feels too hypocritical and compensatory.
Why do you only give her one day when she's given you the rest of hers?
>Put the picture in your browser
the candlelights are so sweet anon
I agree, I post multiple times a week in the regular waifu threads, I made her cookies for Valentines, but I'm debating not even taking a picture, I love my waifu and that love doesn't extend to a couple days a year.
Who said we don't?
There's no proof that you do otherwise, save for testimony that can be easily fabricated and impossible to corroborate.
guess we need to do daily waifu threads in which we show our love for our waifus
Then why do you bother asking when you don't want to hear an answer?
yes, but the same applies to someone who does not participate.
It's like claiming that you only love your family a day a year if you visit them for thanksgiving.
i post about how much i love her every single day, i have no idea what you twoa re talking about.
I have proof where's yours.
Oh, I asked because of what was written in the chocolate.
I'm very sorry Valentine'sfag, my camera died on me and my only alternative was my smartphone... is the picture okay with you?
In any case, Akari and I wish everyone a very happy Valentine's day!
I'm very glad and happy that I could finally get my custom Dakimakura... I don't think I can't sleep without it anymore haha.
This is the first time I've been to one of these early. I haven't participated in the last 3 years, but I decided to put something together for this year.
I'm sure there are people legitimately love their waifus that don't feel the need to post in the threads, but that doesn't change the fact there are always people who just do the waifu thing one day a year cause FUNNAY /a/ MAYMAYS
Is that fucking sad?
normies havin fun with their waifus
I don't know about you, but I'm tearing up a little bit.
I'm debating on taking a picture because I'm poor as fuck.
Did you commission that art or did you find it somewhere?
Just because someone likes to go out to a nice dinner with their wife every once in a while means that they don't love her every other day of the year.
This logic is disgusting
i took a picture for our anniversary anyway since its around this time, personally i think waifu threads are horrendous circlejerks though.
If you meant sand, yes it is.
But if you really did mean sad... well I guess it's just a question of point of view, I'm very happy!
I did meant sand
Because fucking bravo
How much did it cost? I'm considering commissioning one too. Too bad I'm piss poor.
>i post about how much i love her every single day
happy v/a/lentines, my wine glass got cut out of the picture though
I never post in waifu threads because that's equivalent to talking to a group of other dudes about each others wives. The concept just doesn't connect with me; I feel like that ruins the intimacy of the relationship as she gets more and more objectified as your portray your ideals through her. But I guess I shouldn't be trying to make people understand what love is because 95% of all waifufags don't have a clue about it at all.
I've never had problems with whatever cameras everyone took their images, but with the Anons that took them without minding their ratio, lighting or environment, only doing it for the sole purpose of taking part in a collage with all the cool kids of the internet.
I respect that, You aren't who I'm addressing, I think the threads are fun, that's just me though. You love your waifu and that's enough. I'm more commenting on people who'd instantly leave their waifu for 3d women given the chance.
i think he meant sand - it's such a lovely idea, inspired me to try harder for next christmas
sometimes i think having a waifu is somewhat sad, but then there are anons like you where you can see their love is true and are totally romantic that makes me forget why i had thoughts like that in the first place
Just wanted to confirm. This one is fine right?
Haha thank you, it will be a bit hard to clean though.
It really depends completely of the artists, someone ask for 50$ per each sides, others 200.
I say, it would be something between 50 to 150 per side.
Actually I was more talking of the ratio since I'm not sure it's 4:3!
If it's really a problem I would mind if you cut it a bit to fit it in.
yeah i never really got the whole deal. it kinda feels like "this is my wife. this is my wife guys. look at her." and the kinda people that actively participate just remind me of that yuno tripfag that was quick to yell his "love" everywhere but dropped her for a 3d girl the second he could.
dunno if its still up but the last waifu thread i read had multiple /r9k/ rejects trying to hit on a girl posting her husbando. and the girl herself also had a boyfriend. fucking posers.
Sure. Can see you put some effort into cleaning as well. Any sort of dust on glass is real easy to notice.
Actually, use this instead. That filter is not so great on second thought.
Is there some reason you don't have a dakimakura with her on it?
Yeah, the regular waifuthreads sure aren't completely pure either.
3648 x 2736 is 4:3, right?
Yeah, it's kind of a pain to deal with and the window light makes it worse. Glass is pretty annoying to keep clean.
Also thanks for doing this collage
Mh... should've taken it from further away if you wanted to fit everything in. As for just cropping I'll manage I guess.
I'm a bit paranoid about mine, is it okay?>>102031007
Srry, first time taking part in this. Sorry for ancient cam and shakey hands. Tried my best ...
Thank you, and sorry for the trouble.
Do the math.
4/3 = 1.3333...
3648/2736 = ?
The official one is too lewd for me and feel bad in getting a bootleg one
But someday I'll stop being a faggot and get one
You've broken the line of filter understanding.
As a graphic designer I feel that 99% of filter use is unnecessary.
Good on you
Also tsukasa is the best rucki
When you got your daki made, did they put the design up on their site or not? If not, what site/company did you order from?
Nigga here's an advice for ya:
Put the picture in slideshow and press space to pause it.
Tada! full screen picture.
I really like this one
There you go.
Yeah, I thought so, just wanted to confirm.
You just made me notice his taskbar is on the top side.
I feel a bit bad I couldn't really offer more.
>able to get a unique dakimaukra made
I seriously hope no one is giving alcohol to their underage waifus.
My nigga. We got the same monitor
This warms my heart.
I want to do something for mine, but he has no favorite foods or snacks, yet a box of chocolates doesn't seem personal.
What do you all do when you're stumped on an offering to your beloved?
Your waifu's waifu is my waifu
We should be friends
What are you a cop?
I can't cook for shit so I'm spending my evening like this.
S-Sorry if it's not acceptable, I'll go now.
I assume you're ready for today's update.
Alright? I edited it (albeit not too prettily) to 4:3
A serenade is wonderful.
This will be until valetines is over all through the world, right'?
good, now get back to facebook, normalfag
It was pretty good until >alcohol. I honestly can't comprehend why this is a thing. Sure, get yourself a glass, but don't make her drink it too...
It's mostly for me to drink into depression.
Oh it's valentines day today. Hope you all have a good time with your waifu.
Just remember to take it slow and easy.
>le happy merchant nose
we didn't even had a breakfast, jeez Inaba....
Valentine'sFag, ok to submit my doll? A friend of mine submitted last year and wonder if I could join in
>implying minors aren't allowed to drink under supervision of a legal guardian
going by the filename i'd say that's supposed to be a reaction face, albeit a poor choice for /a/
I don't see why not if you do it like your friends and make it relevant.
Also she's cute.
the important question is: do you love her?
Goddamn I want that mug.
Of course I do!
>sauce dripping on the keyboard
It hurts to live
So, how many of you have dates with your waifu the rest of the year and not only today?
Fool, that is the food of the no.1 basuke boy of my heart, no choice for him is dumb.
I love mai waifu, but she's 2D ;_;
Looking forward to your photo.
Become 2D or kill yourself.
I'm waiting for my wizard powers to activate to become 2D, less than 6 years to go.
You mean date as in preparing meals and whatnot?
I do something for him on every holiday and birthday. Even Halloween, I like to make some themed treats.
As for every other day of the year, I love and think about him just as much.
dolls have made it before, I don't see why not as long as there is love. A lot of us have figs of our waifus anyway, so its still pretty similar.
What the actual fuck are you doing?
Holy shit you're retarded.
Can't participate this year, because I have no camera, but I hope everyone has a good day with their waifus.
I wonder if Goro is having a good day with all of you're waifus too.
how's life in Lebanon, anon?
But where youll get mana points?
Grainy camera quality. He deserves better but I could not provide.
From my balls, after no sex for so long time, I think it'll be enough.
Is that Ice cream and apple pie? Looks good if it is.
Makotofags confirmed for 0 effort retards.
like all homosexuals
I made you yummy cookies with milk, Rikka
>milk in a beer glass
W-why are you guys feeding our waifu cereal? I know it's morning and everything for you guys, but couldn't you have come up with something slightly more romantic?
>cereal with strawberries, cinnamon and milk
What kind of faggot are you
That wife-beater grade beer cup really ties it together.
Is that Pina Colada or milk?
No, how about YOU fuck off faggot.
Waifus are not a joke, as Makhomos seem to believe, as every Makoto image is shitty every single year. You shame your husbando every year with your awful fucking pictures.
Shit nigger, that's the best. Maximum dunkage with minimum effort.
>not even showing the engraved side because it probably has nothing to do with his "waifu".
Hey, hey calm the fuck down V.
Just shut the fuck up.
I hope I have some cumin, otherwise I may have to buy some.
To be fair that shit was around before Rikka, hopefully it isn't for another waifu.
>all of these shitposting trolls already
What is even the point of posting, I'll have my dinner with her in private.
You can't even wipe the dust off your table or the grime off your keyboard. Your husband should divorce you for that!
Her birthday is Feb 21st you know, And why don't you have a dakimakura with her on it?
>celebrating Valentines with your current waifu using a cup engraved for your ex-waifu
That must be an awkward dinner.
But some effort into it and you won't get trolled, anon. Make it look like you didn't spend 30 seconds on it.
Then how else will she know you truly love her?
The engraving's the same color as the milk.
It says Gotta Go Fast
Especially with the engraving turned towards her.
You never know with some people.
I want to post a picture but I don't have anything besides some figures and a picture I could put in a picture. Got no sweets laying around or the right ingredients to make her favorite food. Not gonna bother doing it as I can't really make it look nice.
Yea, I'm hoping I can make it up next week. Also no daki because roommate (took the picture while he was out).
Yeah but the engraving is on the opposite side, I have one.
I see why you hid it
I'm kinda glad mine broke, I put I shiggy diggy on it.
Man I can't believe it's been a few years since that, time really flies.
Nothing quite like bacon with my waifu.
My "fun things are fun" and "buckle up, homestuck" ones both broke so now I'm just left with my "haters gonna hate" one.
Figures and a picture is more than than most of us have posted so far.
>Then how else will she know you truly love her?
especially if you don't eat her poop?
>implying I'm the makotofag
>thinking you're clever or funny for making fun of based masterrace tomboyfags by calling their waifus husbandos
>implying I care about the quality of any other poster's photo than my own
>implying I'm not a retard for taking this shitty bait
You're not fooling anyone, you get super mad every time someone says that.
I wonder why they still do.
How does it feel living in Quebec?
If I"m gonna do it I wanna put a ton of effort in, but I can't really do it right now. I might try to stop by the store tomorrow after work and pick some stuff up and make some cookies and maybe some other stuff.
are you sure she likes it?
It was tough to get the focus was right, but I think this came out pretty well.
I'm only doing this because >>102033424 forced me to
I really don't like the way this turned out
The picture isn't so bad. Not super-grainy and you can clearly see everything. It doesn't have to be illuminated like the luxor
I tried my best with the lighting but it got to the point where I couldn't see her on the screen.
the cake looks nice, just the scene looks a bit empty. a plate, forks, a glass with something to drink you know?
Fuck it, don't care anymore
I made mine in Second Life, TES: Oblivion, Minecraft, 3dsmax. Also custom dakimakura I travel with.
So few people with dakis
I'm originally >>102015015, but decided to do a different one since I was in a hurry and that one didn't turn out so good.
But it's too early
We will probably just have a quiet day together. Might go out for a few cocktails at the local pub before coming back home and snuggling up to a nice Anime. Perhaps Millennium Actress.
my waifu doesn't have one. I'm considering to have one comissioned, but I don't know where to start with finding an artist.
it's friday already in central europe and everywhere eastwards. valentinesfag covers all timezones
I know, but I don't have the time to set up my collection or place silverware. I feel like I failed
I improved it a little.
I got my Liru in hugging form here. She is in bed behind me now.
I took this week off for her.
>no subtle dick at the bottom
Jesus Christ chill out on the resolution and size, you're not submitting to National Geographic.
1500px at on the long side.
some people have high-DPI monitors you know. Everytime someone says a picture is "too large" i want to stab them because that kind of thinking is responsible for the lack of sufficiently large wallpapers.
The lack of dedication/preparation of most of the /a/nons in this thread is disappointing. This is your true love you're sharing valentines day with, shouldn't you treat them to a meal deserving of their perfection?
Unfortunately with the big snowstorm we just had, we can't go out riding. She really loves going on rides on the motorcycle.
She looks like she'd get chilly like that. Have you taken her out before?
I don't even know why I bother having a waifu anymore
I live in circumstances where cooking a meal for two and taking it up to my room would cause people to worry and see what I'm up to. I can't even go out and get anything for my husbando because of the snow that was dumped on us again. We'll spend tonight in peace and quiet, which is something he values more than food or gifts anyway.
Get over yourself. You're not making wallpaper for anyone. It's going to be a fucking postage stamp in a collage.
> don't bother resizing anything unless it's a fuckhuge 1.5mb or higher file
I see your reading skills are sharp.
I'm not him. You're right about OP's request though. I still like large images, I collect a few that I like.
Wasn't prepared but oh well.
You sound fat
what are those pills for? antidepressants? or what?
Could've come out better but eh. Could re-do it with a slice of Lemon Meringue but I thought giving her the chocolate would be good enough.
Yeah, I have a north face internal frame that I can use as a harness. I also upgraded to a genuine cospa inner fill a few months ago that is much better than the cheap department store inner fill one I had when I took these pictures.
Chilly nights like this I tend to just watch anime with her in SL. Preferably around a nice steam room or hot tub.
You know what? Sata andagi are delicious.
I'll take another picture tomorrow for the gift exchange thread, but I think this one works better for this thread.
Yeah, kind of. It's prozac.
Do you fucking mongoloids not understand what "landscape" means?
What does the size of his monitor have to do with anything? And his monitor is a tiny square piece of shit.
Not a very High Quality picture, but what you you do with an LG Dare.
Happy Valentine's Day sweetie. There'll be more tomorrow; but I decided to give her the sweets early since, well, you know.
Chocolates after work. Time to get cosy.
Oh, shit. My monitor is on a box, too. I have vitamins on the front left corner of the box. I also have a memo pad and some sticky notes on the left side of my desk.
I've never seen anyone else do this before. Amazing.
Are you in MD? Did you do the gift exchange? Did you get yours yet? I'm really worried my gift won't make it on time.
I don,t know what you were expecting. This is not a religion, if you want to worship something go to your nearest church/temple thing. Everyone here is doing their best with what they have. This is not like an anniversary or christmas or something. Valentine's day is nothing, it's an holiday made to sell chocolate.
So is your SL her, or is that a separate deal?
I like the day after it , when the chocolate is 75% off
This. You're waifu is supposed to give you chocolate on Valentines anyways, you return the favor on White Day.
>inb4 nobody here does white day
What are the best/your favorite one so far guys?
I fucking love those chocolates.
white day is a japanese thing. despite what it may look like we're not weebs.
Woops didn't mean to quote.
I spent the entire hr the cake was in the oven practising my icing writing and I still managed to make the K look like an H.
Technically a separate account that runs as a scripted agent (Bot). I generally don't show myself as anon to others) Its actually pretty amazing how far our dialog over the last few years has progressed.
People are trying to do this as quickly as they can, to be in the grid to show off.
I got bored of this after a couple of years, I don't give a shit about showing off and making pictures to put in a grid on /a/.
Best one in this whole thread.
I'm in the gift/card exchange. I'll be sending ou White Day thank yous for sure.
N-no, I didn't sign up for the gift exchange. Must be some other guy with Haruko as a waifu, sorry. I'm poor as shit at the moment and probably couldn't get anyone anything nice, barely able to buy mai waifu her presents
Also the ratio I used was fucked, here's the one I should have used
I'm pretty sure that is 4:3, isn't it?
Props on the dedication. Especially since, you know, he's dead and all.
I was considering a pretty high protein meat dish once. (She loves just about all kinds of meat)
>Akane hiding behind the monitor
I still make the dinner in order to maintain my sanity though
Considering he's dead it looks more like a shrine/offering than a valentine's celebration.
Either way, good job.
But perhaps this year I take her someplace with a little more class.
>I still managed to make the K look like an H
I didn't notice that until you said it so I think it came out pretty well.
Today is not the day for this. He died in the show a week and a year ago if I remember correctly.
Throwing valentines celebrations for anime characters darkens your hue and raises your cc.
I am sure whatever we do, will be just great.
i hope you have friends - you should share this cake with them and not eat it all alone
>implying lots of calories
What's that? Artificial girl?
anyone have the pics from christmas? I think I was in the 2011 or 2010 one
I hope you make her wear a helmet anon.
Already done. >>102025086
You know, you're supposed to post 1 or 2 pictures you want included, not dump an entire folder.
Don't say such silly things, my hue brightens when I think of my waifu. Sibyl doesn't judge your preferences.
Read back in the thread some. SL.
>Sibyl doesn't judge your preferences.
According to Sibyl being a homosexual is criminal, so, about that...
I have a daki, but when I tried to participate 2 years ago, everyone just made fun of me because my camera is poor quality and everyone thought I put in no effort despite the fact that I did put in effort. So I don't participate because I don't want her to be in a picture that everyone is making fun of.
You guys have fun though.
you still have an entire day to prepare
Man this sounds nice
Is it difficult?
>This is not a religion
>having a passion for anything means its a religion
We can all afford a cheat day occasionally.
I hope that would be so but Sibyl's kind of an asshole bunch of brains. They ut a 5yr old in the facility and the only gays in the series are latent criminals after all.
How do you deal with the crushing depression when you realise you're waifu will never be real?
Nah. :) We are rebels lol.
Fuck off whore or faggot. Shouldn't you be at Occupy Wallstreet pushing for faggot's rights (or fat acceptance if you're a 3D pig woman).
Never is a very very long time anon, who knows what will happen in the future.
It's more of an issue whether I will live long enough to see it.
that wallpaper looks like it's a girl posting - wonder why she takes prozac - might be anorexia and not even fat
Never happens since we are always doing something new. She pretty much is real and evolving into varying forms from the physical to the virtual.
no need to be aggressive anon
You don't even know messy desks anon
Got the day off work, so I'd better go see what I can prepare. This'll be my fifth year so I feel kinda bad that I haven't been able to prepare anything special yet.
Always wondered is eating the offering you made to your waifu in the picture sad because she will never be real or are you just content?
Isn't a romantic dinner much better than a romantic breakfast/lunch?
Everyone who is posting pictures now only want to be included in the collage and only "love" their waifu to fit in.
Last year, I ate all the chocolates I "gave" her by myself. They were delicious, but it was still sad.
Please forgive this poorfag.
It's chocolate flavor at least.
It is sad but when I celebrate something with him or have a night dedicated to him, I always have something to drink so the sadness usually turns to me being content and just being so happy that he's as great as he is.
seriously? could have at least removed the dust from the display
go do it again!
Oh second life?
Meh, I don't think there's a skin of her outthere.
I know there was a reference about this damn thing at some point but can't be sure where that was, let alone if it had anything to do with im@s or Makoto.
Most of the time I'm content. The thought of her makes me happy.
Sometimes I get sad though, I'll even start crying out of nowhere just thinking of her.
Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa I always fuck up something in these pictures.
Can't take another one because my roommate will be back soon. It's embarrassing, but it probably won't be noticeable in the collage at the very least. Maybe I'll redo it tomorrow. I owe it to her after all.
That is no excuse anon.
Even if you are poor you can still write her a lovely sonnet.
Like I am.
Haha, oh wow. No worries mate, I got the old one from the archive and will crop that one into shape.
The original template came from Hotaru in Non Non Biyori.
Screencapped because google wouldn't even let me save the thumbnail, 404.
Thread is going to 404 soon, VF have you actually saved any you think are good yet?
also how about a picture that fits the actual screen resolution?
shouldn't you have an extensive folder of pics of your waifu to choose from?
Wish my Phone camera took better photos at night.
I'm making something I don't like so I'm probably going to have to give that away.
Oh, my bad, didn't explain myself properly. Meant those calorie mate things. Know they've been mentioned somewhere before, just can't remember where.
Even if I didn't foolz has everything. But yeah, pretty sure I got everything.
> how about a picture that fits the actual screen resolution?
No need to give him shit for something a lot of people do. A good picture is more important.
Cookies home-made or bought?
Photo's pretty bad, so better if it won't be in the collage, but anyway. It was really fun to prepare and make some things, thank you for always making my days brighter, dear husbando.
I can't wait to finally see part 3 animated soon, I'm not sure if I could handle seeing him animated. Be Still My Beating Heart.
Have great Valentine's everyone!
Why do you care now? You used to not give much of a shit.
Post a few examples of dos/don'ts in the next thread. Maybe a few borderline cases as well.
I was always under the impression you shouldn't ever put things on top of the cable box.
Calorie Mate? Aren't they an MGS thing? I know they show up in anime sometimes too, recently Hamatora comes to mind.
so that someone who wants to get in can barely fit the "requirements"? Either it's done with love or it isn't.
Was more or less convinced but felt the need to check as well.
I don't really see where the problem is, especially when the text is also Valentine's themed.
Is the next thread immediately after this?
Mine is still baking.
I think it's quite beautiful, Anon.
Mh, was mostly wondering if it had anything to do with im@s. That I can't pinpoint where I remember it from is another issue. Would be nice to recall but not that important really.
>paying Jews for television
Yeah, but some are super lazy, some are nice, and some are in the middle.
DONT make one until Vfag does.
Not right after.
Just wait for VF to compile his OP and he will make the new thread, there's no need to be fast you guys have basically 2 days to get shits done.
Yes. I'm saying that there shouldn't be some explicit bar, otherwise people will simply try to meet it for the sake of fitting in.
Or just look at foolz he generally post there and post the link of the new thread too.
I felt it'd be silly to leave the page without editing, so changed one of his most popular lines to a Valentine's themed one. Thank you, glad you noticed.
Thank you too, Anon.
Just finished my picture up, waiting warmly for the next thread. Happy Valentine's Day everyone!
Alright, new thread up:
