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!

I think that I have put down roots

Everyone's favorite hypocrite, Parasite Tree!

This was originally going to be part of a larger piece, but I decided to make this its own individual piece. Even going as far as to make an alternate version (right)

#SpringEevee #1 Protect
Eevees make people happy so I decided to start another daily Eevee(lutions) project. At first let's start with 14 sketches. After that... we'll see :)

For a while I've been thinking that it would be nice to set up an group for together, talking and helping each other. 🙂

What do you think? Would you like to take part? Do you have hints how to set this up?

Please share/boots and comment! 🙂

@naugeleh has a magical ability:

To find the right thing to say when I'm struggling. Today it came in the form of someone else's words, which means I get to share some amazing wisdom by proxy about trying to be , and making during our current circumstances.

Being reminded that I'm human, and not some perpetually squeezed tube of magical art paste that oozes out amazing results on demand made me feel a lot better about having a low day.

Little follow-up. I've gotta say that making my own black walnut ink and using it as a stain on horn carvings is one of the best decisions I've made in doing this stuff.

Day 64

Moar fruits, one more villager and then we will catch some bugs and fish and pixel new designs in animal crossing 🥰

Starting in a few minutes
