Title: Internet Before Time [Updated 2020/11/18]
Post by: Stardisk on September 07, 2020, 12:12:30 AM

This is a very-very strange picture series that came to my mind last week.
These series will show, “What if the Internet was existing before time and LBT-characters used it?”
What would they post in social networks? What comments would they write?

I'll post here the "screenshots" of different social media sites with LBT-characters activity.
Why the word "screenshots" is in quotes? Because every screenshot will be drawn manually by me in vector editor. Every page interface detail, every avatar - everything will be drawn by hand. There will not any photoshopped real screenshots.

As a bonus, I'll post all avatars separately in PNG and high resolution, so the administrators can convert it to new emoticons.

So, this is the first pic from the series!

And the avatars separately:

Nice job on this! I'm not really sure what category this would go into, whether it should be fanart or projects, so I'll just leave it up here! Had a laugh at "What does B.C. in dates mean?" :P

The fact that Spike can't pteet made me laugh too!

If I may offer some feedback on the language used:
"Cera, what I told you about..." should either be "Cera, what have I told you about..." or "Cera, what did I tell you about...". Other than that it is  :SharptoothAmused

I'll see about converting those images later this week/next weekend!

This is hilarious, Stardisk! Cera's username is perfection! :SharptoothAmused Love how Mr. Threehorn jumps in and interrupts the whole conversation, leading to Cera getting cut off in the last pteet! :lol Those avatar emojis are wonderful, too! You've done an amazing job drawing everything by hand--great work!

Aside from what Mumbling said, as far as grammar goes I'm going to mention one other detail: Petrie doesn't usually use contractions. Instead of "Me don't mind," he would say "Me no mind." His grammar is easy to get wrong, though, so it's not a big deal, just thought you might want to know for future reference.

I had to do a double look this morning when I saw this in my groggy state. Why am I not surprised that it is Littlefoot to suggest they go visit Mysterious Beyond again? He always seems to drag the gang away from the valley into danger or then the others just follow him into it. Mr. Threehorn might just be the most qualified of the gang's family members, because he's actually one step ahead of them this time. Instead of waiting for the inevitable news that their kids have wandered off once more, he tries to put a stop to it. :o

Such a shame that Spike could not make it. But where are Chomper and Ruby? Were they not present in the valley at this time? Or did they finally come to the realization that they need a new group of friends that don't need to constantly go look for trouble? I really love that you took time of your day to do this. :) It's great! Criticisms have already been brought up by others, so I will not waste anyone's time by saying the same things.

I've seen a lot of mockup tweets, but never one in LBT style. Lots of jokes in the usernames, the profiles are cute, everyone already beat me to it this time.

Also there's totally a legit tweet generator: https://www.tweetgen.com/create/tweet.html (https://www.tweetgen.com/create/tweet.html) :OhYou

Hello-o-o-o everyon-e-e!

Thank you for quelling any uncertainties that Stardisk may have had with this idea he had pitched forth to me in private. And also, thanks for further correcting on some grammar that I've missed out on initially. You guys have definitely made his day. This is an awesome project idea as I told you dude, I had a feeling it would be a big hit among others here.

It's amazing project, Stardisk! Great job!

Wow, when did you draw these awesome avatars? :O Amazing!

One thing: I think "winter" should be renamed to Cold Times.


And of course, Pterano is here, in his PTerano's twEET and Pterano incorporated. XD

That is great that you have noticed small details which I added to the pic.

I'll consider all your corrections for the next pics. Your comments to my project are really important to me!  :duckyhappy

I try to make new posts every 4-5 days. So, the next picture will be ready this week. I have a bunch of ideas!  ;)Cera

Hey, I was waiting for this to arrive. This is simply great. The twitter post was fun, but I'd say this is even more fun, and I really like how there's even a live version of it. You would easily mistake this as a real YouTube video because it has everything. Thanks to you and ImpracticalDino for this. Are we going to see more in the future? :lol:

I really like the emoticons as well. They will be a great addition to the forum collection. :)

Now the word "nonsense" and my nickname are hidden in the pic is the feature of my project :D
Threehorns are supposed to be trolls (who they, in general, are)

Thanks!  I've tried to make the fully functional copy of Youtube page, so there are almost all the links are clickable, working search,  likes to comments are also functionally and you can post a comment :D
(but they are not saved)

Of course I will continue making Internet Before Time, I have a lot of ideas, and some suggestions from other users. The next part will be released soon!

Also having "This video isn't available in your time" is a nice little Easter Egg

Wow!! This one is even better than the last, Stardisk! :ChomperImpressed My favorite detail is the video by "Hyp(e)"--it took me a moment to figure out the username, which made it even more hilarious when I realized who it was! :lol I also love Strut's video, and Ms. Longneck's "Delete this" comment is great. :lol Even better is how the most viewed video is Littlefoot's embarrassing one of Cera! :lol And the way Cera writes all her titles in caps is so in-character. Fantastic work, once again!

Part 3 is ready!

Sorry for delay, I was going to post it on Sunday, but didn't have enough time.
Of course, new 5 emoticons have been done with this part!

I forgot to comment on the Youtube one, but it gave me a good laugh. Good audio track to pick for the video as well, haha!

#oops-eeps should definitely be a thing.

"View all 275 replies" oh man... :P

I added your emotes to the forum and some of them to the Discord channel. Please let me know if I forgot any!

Poor Littlefoot indeed, not his best moment at all. Can't help but notice that Cera is always a little jerk in these, but I guess that's just the way it is. That claw looks like one of Chomper's, so how did Ducky ''accidentally'' get this pic? Regardless, great work again, Stardisk! It was funny as always. :ozzysmug

I've tried to recreate the widespread mistake - when the finger tip accidentally covers the camera a bit.

I added your emotes to the forum and some of them to the Discord channel. Please let me know if I forgot any!
That's awesome!   :littlefoot
I'd been waiting it for a long time!
And there are all 17 emoticons, which I've created at this moment, everything is good!
Thanks a lot!

Hah thank you. Ducky has quite popular account in TreeStarGram  :ducky

You are right! I'm sure that Cera would behave exactly.

I didn't suppose Chomper's presense in this part, so, it is Ducky's claw. Also it is only the defocused tip, so I don't understand how you could define whose the claw is.
But thank you for your comment!

^Well, it is a bit hard to figure out who the character behind the camera is if all we can see is the claw, wouldn't you agree? I don't think that's fair since you're the one who made it while we're the ones watching it. :petrienotamused

Well, it was not supposed to be part 4.
I just wanted to draw a cover for the first message of topic, but while doing it I've got an idea to remake the whole LBT logo. So, I spent a lot of hours and draw a lot of pictures, and I think that the result can be considered as part 4!

Probably I will change the title, because it seems that my pics can move away from the initial format and even "Internet"-topic in future, but they will be still related to the modern times, technologies and other cyberpunk  :littlefoot

Yeah. Or in "The Corrupt a Wish Game" topic  :cerasmug

Though I thought Littlefoot would be not food for trolls, but owner of banhammer.  :rhett_grin
I wonder why did you thought so. Littlefoot's image of "food for trolls" is based on the original LBT-movies. Cera slightly trolls Littlefoot in almost every original LBT movie, Littlefoot always starts arguing with her and leaves the chat Gang, relying only on himself.

Well, I thought SOMEONE from Gang would have banhammer. :D And since there's no Chomper and his banjaws, well... Littlefoot is leader after all, and tries to make inner atmosphere inside Gang more calm and nice, so I think he's "moderator" of chat, even not being actual moderator or administrator. :P

I'm sure that Cera wouldn't like that very much. She'd want as much, if not even more power than Littlefoot and the rest of the gang would just get into the middle of yet another big argument. :littlefootscared :cerasmug

Well, I'm going to add Chomper in the future. But I'm not going to give any special permissions to anybody in the Gang, all of them should have equal rights.
Anagnos is absolutely right in this message:

Wow, a lot has happened since I was last here! :rhett_shocked I love how Ducky's fingertip snuck into her photo of Littlefoot, and the "oops-eeps" hashtag is hilarious! As for the logo you drew, I really got a kick out of the way you perfectly matched the Gang's personalities to how they would behave on the internet. It's so funny because it's so accurate! Amazing work, once again! :DD

I couldn't quite picture the concept of 'Internet Before Time' before scrolling down, and boy oh boy, it didn't disappoint!  70% of the time I was snickering uncontrollably!!  There are so many Easter eggs in these pseudo posts  :lol:!

The YouTube video by far my personal favourite.  Everyone's perfectly in character, even within this anachronistic scenario!  Trust Cera to edit it to 'You Spin Me Round (Like a Record)'.  Poor Ducky tried so hard to reel her in, only for Mr. Threehorn to give her the Father's Seal of Approval.  Funny how you can see that Littlefoot's the one watching the video.  Can't see his reaction, but it goes without saying that he was irked on behalf of longneck kind.  Wait a minute ... Littlefoot's 'A Little Creepy Crawlie Scares Cera' video got 1.4M VIEWS?!?  I'm starting to feel less sympathetic for Littlefoot.  The other video suggestions are a hoot!  'Crazy Stone Eater', 'Cera and Flathead are Dating!?!?', 'Ducky Plans for Great Valley Domination', 'Chomper Caught Eggnapping', 'Local Mud Brother Exposed'!  I'm still snickering  :lol: :lol: :lol:!

Easter Eggs are the feature of the series. And by the way, Youtube was the most complicated part.

I see that the Gang is taking the quarantine procedures very seriously in the Great Valley. Exemplary behavior from the young dinosaurs. :p Those rainbowfaces must have done something to Littlefoot because I don't think he's at home anymore. But more importantly, why is Cera the only one to have her webcam vertical? I think she might need some help in this regard. :thudLOL

Good to see this continue. Keep them coming! They're making my day! Where's is Ruby, though? She's not usually too far away from Chomper. :RubyCurious

She just placed her phone in the wrong orientation :D

I'm trying to do weekly updates for these series, but something goes wrong  :littlefoot

I see that the Gang is taking the quarantine procedures very seriously in the Great Valley. Exemplary behavior from the young dinosaurs. :p
Well, yeah. But when I started drawing that, the quarantine measures hadn't been tightened yet. Coincidence...

Those rainbowfaces must have done something to Littlefoot because I don't think he's at home anymore.
He just used the Zoom function "replace background" :D

But more importantly, why is Cera the only one to have her webcam vertical? I think she might need some help in this regard. :thudLOL
As I said earlier, she just placed her phone in the wrong orientation (references to the previous part)  :feelsgoodman

Where's is Ruby, though? She's not usually too far away from Chomper.
I know quite little about her. I've met her only once, in LBT14, and still don't know some details.

Well, there are no people in LBT-universe, so I've changed any people icons like this:
(https://stardisk.xyz/hostpic/LBT/Internet/5/invite.png)
Such icons also were in some previous parts. I'll think about changing the design of them in the future.

Very good, once again! I like that Spike is muted  :lol And yeah, Littlefoot is hanging out in beyond the mysterious beyond which is cool :D
Mumbling, thank you!
Yeah, it is the reference to Spike's inability to talk. Littlefoot's custom background is the reference to my interest in space  :littlefoot

This looks so fantastic! I love how Littlefoot added a fancy background to his video :littlefoot:) and Cera's camera is turned the wrong way! :cerasus   :lol  Muted Spike is perfectly fitting as well, and the change to the people icons is a nice touch. I also had fun looking for that "Stardisk's Nonsense" Easter egg you always hide in there...for a moment, I thought you'd left it out, but I was wrong. :D

Amazing job!!

You thought that I've abandoned the project, didn't you?
NO.
I just was too busy, so I had to postpone any creative activity. Sorry for that.

Part 6 is here!
It is a cumulative idea, which has merged ideas by @OwlsCantRead and @ImpracticalDino.

there is a real company named Ducky in our real world, and it produces very expensive keyboards

Not gonna lie, I had mostly forgotten about the Internet Before Time, probably due to how long it has been since the last update. But I can understand that often circumstances make it difficult to provide regular updates. I'd be more than happy to donate for this project. I love how Littlefoot is fully supportive while Cera is slightly questioning what this project can offer, both in contrast of their individual character. Now we just need to get everyone else in the Great Valley into this project. Who knows, maybe even outside the valley it will garner interest. :smile

We definitely need more backers in this project, folks. Spread the word, everyone. :p Once again, great work on this, Stardisk. I'll be looking forward for the next one in due time. :littlefoot:)

What does Ducky wear on her head?

I wonder: why exactly 980754 treestars? Why this particular number?

About emotes: Littlefoot and Ducky scare me... Seems their dark sides strike back... :O Cera seems to worry about them...

I will try to avoid so long delays between parts in future and release new parts every 1-2 weeks, not more.

Black and white Ducky is a parody logo of the real manufacturer of expensive keyboards named Ducky.

link, if you are interested. (https://www.duckychannel.com.tw/en)  not an ad

980754 is a just randomly typed number, there is no any hidden sense  :littlefoot
but there is another hidden sense - Littlefoot donated 50 treestars, and Cera donated only 2

Yes, here I wanted to exchange a bit their usual emotions

I just wanted to apologize for missing a lot of the new developments with this project.  In particular the developments from the last month is new to me, and I must say that I am greatly impressed.  :)littlefoot  The zoom call in particular is quite on-brand with what a lot of instructors and students have had to contend with lately, and your depiction of what the gang would be like on the Internet is quite spot on.  Cera the Internet troll?  Someone would be quite impressed!   :bestsharptooth ;)Cera  :taunttroll


Finally, I must admit that I have not been familiar with the Ducky brand of high-end keyboard products and that makes the latest entry all the more perfect.  If the products that Ducky has in mind with her Trickstarter are similar to the actual Ducky brand, then she might become quite the treestar rich swimmer in time.  ;)Cera


I look forward to seeing what you have in store for us next!  :)

Thank you, rhombus!  I'll try to release new parts without long delays! And I'm glad that now you've seen missed parts!
I hadn't been familiar with Ducky brand too, until ImpracticalDino told me about it and gave me an idea for this part.
By the way Ducky is the only member of the Gang who has fully functional hands and fingers, so who would have done it if not her?  :duckyOK

Title: Re: Internet Before Time Part 7, unusual
Post by: Stardisk on November 18, 2020, 02:38:54 PM
oh, I've almost finished this post and accidentally closed the browser...

Part 7 is here!
It is not usual part.

I got this idea while creating part 4 (the cover). I'd just redrawing letters from the original LBT logo (https://static.wikia.nocookie.net/logopedia/images/e/e6/The_Land_Before_Time_logo.gif), and thought about drawing the whole alphabet. So, now I've finished it. I make the whole LBT-alphabet, and some letters I had to invent by myself.
Also I've created the special tool (https://stardisk.xyz/projects/lbt/), where you can transform any text (120 symbols maximum) to transparent PNG-file where your text will be written in LBT-font.
And you can use this file wherever you want - to decorate (https://www.gangoffive.net/index.php?topic=16566.msg522360#msg522360) something, to make beautiful and bright heading, or send something to enemy (https://i.imgur.com/CftsiB3.png).

I tried to timed it to the 32nd LBT Anniversary and looks like I did it!

For example:
