Hello my lovely #MastoArt-ists!
Looking for other creative instances to try out? Take a look at these excellent choices:
While I'm at it, I'm going to make one more thread of posts, and that's about how you can support •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:
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!
I'm going to start a thread of quick #MastoTips for new users. Apologies for any hiccoughs, these toots aren't planned, so they may seem a little haphazard.
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.
•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:
Otherwise, just keep on inspiring the with your amazing art! Thank you!

“Breathe in the Vapor and awaken the senses. The Celestial Starfields are home to many creatures that can only be observed after Enlightenment. So breathe deep and experience a new reality.”
I wanted to include the original sketch with this one because I liked it so much😊

I hope you don't mind seeing really old art.
I use to draw everyday, multiple pieces.
Then life got crazy and I lost all energy. From 2012-2017 I didn't really do any art, aside from sketches. I was in a point of life where I just lost interest in everything.
In the last 2 years, I've been slow with art but I've been able to create more and more.
I'm in a better place mentally and actually happy with my art.
Heres a few of my favorite pieces I did before I had a hiatus from art.
Well, digital dump is over (for now).
Now for some character intros and reintroductions for Foody Blues (working title).
This here is (name tbd), she's the cake baker of the gang.

Nouveau bonnet dans la boutique ! On est dans les tons bleus cette fois
“Every age, it seems, is tainted by the greed of men.
Rubbish, to one such as I, devoid of all worldly wants! Hmmm, I dunno, maybe it’s just the way we are.
I’ll stick you in my prayers. A fine dark soul, to you.”
