How I make stars (and spells): I use masking fluid before painting
And it's always magical when I remove it 🌟

I'll leave you with some more art and wish you all a good night/day

For those new to .art, I am still bowled over with gratitude and excitement that I was blessed with the great opportunity to make our mascot. Still so proud I had the chance, and that our very own Curator asked me to. It was an honor, and I hope you guys like our masto-friend as much as I do :)

FYI - it was asked so I will state that I do not make a profit off of this site and never intend to do so. If there is ever a surplus then it will go to graciously supporting Fediverse artists. I'm not running a company either but y/our art is professionally hosted. I have spent more money on hosting, MastoArt'ist: commissions, kofi's, kickstarters etc to probably never even break even.

...but you see the artists posting, how can you not want this much inspiration and beauty filling your life‽

Some thumbnails & ideation for the last design!

I tend to throw a lot of stuff at a wall before something sticks. The thumbs are on top of my research notes, where I usually try to find some strange and interesting costumes, attitudes, and people to pad my brain with :)

Oh yeah, I also paint rocks to spread kindness around my community. Painting in a physical medium is completely new to me but it has been so fun and pushes my boundaries.

Here's the latest batch I sealed (note to self, take more single rock photos).

i'm hoping that in the next animal crossing installment we get some reptile villagers.
funny enough this got flagged on tumblr haha.

sticking to a simple set of values and applying those to directional planes help volumes read clearly!

How do y'all draw your OCs (original characters) without your perfectionism getting in the way? I used to draw mine often, and now...I don't. Because they never really match the vision of what I have in my head. (Maybe this is a general art perfectionism post).

i put together a ton of one-image beginner-friendly drawing tutorials that folks here might find helpful, including this one! megathread below 👇

paint better materials (in this case, wood boards) by making sure your forms read clearly and the texture doesn't get too busy!

even well-rendered materials can use a boost to be more eye-catching. entirely painted with the hard round default brush in PS.

i am just a smol kitten and my best is very small but i do my best

i am sure you do your best too even if you do not feel like it

everyone does their best

Also if you are a fan I would like to point you to this excellent fanfic: BRIGHT MOON, WHO GOES FARTHER STILL archiveofourown.org/works/1642
I am normally allergic to fanfic but this is so well done, it is now part of my headcanon. Gives us a doe hero (and a doe's perspective) to the proceedings without breaking the original book.
