Pinned toot

Time to reveal the new covers for my midlength noir romance OUT WHERE THE SUN ALWAYS SHINES. I put off painting this 'cuz I wasn't sure if my portraiture skills were up to snuff for the pro market (and then I had to go and add a train!) but I'm really happy with how it came out. I used gamut masks for first time, but not to set up the color scheme--just to reinforce color decisions I already made!

Anyone know of someplace I can browse free instrumental music for sleeping? Looking for something along the lines of Steven Halpern's "Relax into Sleep At the Speed of Sound" or Brian Eno's Ambients 1, 2, 4, The Pearl, that kinda thing? My tiny phone does not put out enough bass, so I guess I'm looking for piano type music.

Finally reading Emily Wilson's translation of The Odyssey right now and it is just STAGGERINGLY compelling. Direct without losing the beauty of the language. I'm flying through it.

good cactus boy for my desert art prompt, also based in the mh world...diablos would have fun

For those of you curious about my writing projects, I just wrote a blog post about what I'm up to and future plans. Ends with a review of RED THUNDER and EERIE, INDIANA and a quick recipe. c:

$100 CAD per month is nothing to support a community of thousands of artists, but it is a lot for one person to afford. And that's where we have to ask all of you for help!

As stated in a pinned toot on my profile, we have two places where you can donate to •ART:

:patreon: patreon.com/MastoArt
:liberapay: liberapay.com/masto-art

Many of you are already donating, and you have our gratitude! The rest of you, if you have the means, it would mean the world to us and our artists. :bear_hugs:

Just finished a session of SECRETS OF RAETIKON and I haven't had this much fun nosing around a 2D world for secrets and false walls since DONKEY KONG COUNTRY.
And controlswise I think they took a page from ECCO THE DOLPHIN...so fluid. And you have a (sort of) birby echolocation. I went in expecting a voxel first-person 3D birdflight sim, got something really different and special instead! Highly recommended!

PSA: Boosting costs nothing, and is a super great way to help people out.

Also! It won't appear in the local timeline, just to your followers, so you won't be spamming.

Also, also! Anyone who wants can hide boosts from people they are following. Then you don't have to see boosts anymore if you don't want to.

Everybody wins!

i used to be really into having the newest computer gadget. now i use refurbished hardware. it's so much cheaper. it lasts. it reduces landfill waste. it's great, and i don't really feel like i am missing out on much tech-wise.

here are some tips if you need tech stuff but don't want to spend a lot of money, support horrible companies, and such (1/n)

And here are some works-in-progress Thumbnailed with Crayola markers and a template I made for myself.
I skewed the girl's face digitally from the original sketch to dewonkify it.
I liked some versions where he looms over the scene, but it felt contrary to the story--she's the one on his mind.
MANY THANKS to @DirkGrundy for helping me with the trenchcoat!!!

Looking into some more beautiful plants to study: Hibiscus flower, the Amorphophallus Titanum, Aloe, and a Banana tree. Shape design is everything with plants, so much input and inspiration out there in nature!

Does anyone know if ZBrush can run on Linux? What are the obstacles, and or quirks?

Blender and Meshmixer aside (I already tested Sculptris and Meshmixer and they both work), I specifically need to know if anyone has tried Zbrush.
