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!
I’ve been posting some clay sketches over on my discord, join my Patreon at $2 and get access to my server, where you can view some works in progress, share and promote your own art, chat and get feedback!
Your support helps me with new projects! https://www.patreon.com/monarobot
So long story short my dad took $350 out of my bank account without telling me and refuses to give it back. I am now $350 short to pay off my bills. I'm opening up emergency commissions. You can find the list here: http://fav.me/dd6xfa4

hello! i’m reposting my #commissions to add on some News, 1st: I’m back at college! i’m currently working on getting a part-time job, but until then i’m entirely dependent on patreon and commissions. and 2nd: i’m going to be studying abroad in the Netherlands for my spring semester! any funds from commissions are going to go into groceries, gas, and any study away fees (i.e. passport), and I would greatly appreciate boosts!

The third #lunaugust prompt: Full Moon.
Made of stardust, wishes and dreams.
I've been waiting to do something with the pencil sketch I did last month and this felt like the right time!
The sketch that i did back in July was done following a tutorial which I found really helpful! For anyone who might want to have ago here it is: https://design.tutsplus.com/tutorials/how-to-draw-a-deer-step-by-step--cms-30023
This is more WIP territory, because this is SO rough, but I was listening to certain music and was feelin' it xD
My Commander Adrexolai, at the end of Heart of Thorns, after he spent so long fighting in the jungle by himself, persisting on pure rage and adrenaline. By the time he shows up to the fight, he's amassed a small army of spirit weapons and acts more like a feral animal: lethal, desperate and exhausted.
Ignore weird anatomy, this is just a fun sketch thing
