While I'm at it, I'm going to make one more thread of posts, and that's about how you can support :mastoart:•ART.

As many of you know, to accommodate our recent influx of new users I had to purchase a server upgrade to handle the extra weight.

Our instance is fully hosted and managed by @mastohost, who does such a fantastic job keeping us updated and running smoothly!

But it also costs money every month, and we rely on the support of our users to keep going.

Mastodon.ART also has a Profile directory:

:mastoart: mastodon.art/explore

You can opt-in to add yourself to it in your Preferences page. Any hashtags in your profile will be used to help find you in the directory, too

Check it out, and consider adding yourself if you feel comfortable with it. It's a great way to find new folks to follow! :make_like_edmonia:

I'm going to start a thread of quick for new users. Apologies for any hiccoughs, these toots aren't planned, so they may seem a little haphazard. :da_sweat:

First of all: Welcome to Mastodon! If you're coming from Twitter you'll find some things very similar. Mastodon is a microblogging platform for sharing thoughts, photos, music, video, etc.

Posts on Mastodon are affectionately called "toots". You can laugh, it's OK. We found it funny too when we first joined. :dali_persistance:

:mastoart:•ART will never serve you ads, track you, sell your data, or charge you to use our site. But there are still costs related to running one of the largest artistic communities on Mastodon, and we rely on the generous support of our users to keep the lights on.

If you have the means and inclination, you can support us in two ways:

:patreon: patreon.com/MastoArt

:liberapay: liberapay.com/masto-art

Otherwise, just keep on inspiring the :fediverse: with your amazing art! Thank you!

Meet Rieta, she's a tiefing who I played like twice on an online DnD campaign. She's a rogue but I've been making her slowly loving the pirate lifestyle more. She used to have a pet mouse named Paws but I changed it to be a cat lol

I tried to draw gorgeous pink unicorns and make them the background but it was too hard.

Here is the prog on tha bat btw!

This is the practice run where I am making/perfecting the idea + pattern before I use some nice fabric on it

First pic is the just the head w ideas for a face

Second is head + ears and body, both of which I think need to be adjusted in size. Ears BIGGER. Body slightly smaller.

And finally, the actual pattern I devised for the head itself. The nose is made by gathering a chunk of the head after you stuff it

(05/02/2020) Alright, time to post some WIP!
I wanted to learn 3D sculpting and decided to try creating my new D&D tiefling character!
I'm still learning and most of it is still block-out shapes still but I wanted to share the progression instead of never posting anything like I usually do

I finished a new large #watercolour #drawing. It's again a very detailed one, and it took many, many hours.
It is mainly based on a picture I took at the Gion Matsuri in #Kyoto some years ago of musicians in a festival float, but I gave them all kitsune masks. I will write a blog post about it with more details.
I used Derwent Inktense, Conté Aquarelle and Faber-Castell Graphite Aquarelle pencils. The paper is Fabriano Artistico 56cmx76cm 300g/m2 rough watercolour paper.
