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!

One of last year's calendar pieces :) I usually have one piece with a dragon! Last year's theme was "collecting".

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.

This is one of the old outfits I had for Matteo LMAO

2 years is a lot!!! He looks so different not only in style but like...in actual design??? I remember being SO proud of the old art sfnjddkjsf

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.

My artist stats! I spent more time than I'd admit painting those headphones, maybe I'll post a better pic when I'll scan it
(also, I hope the image description is readable, I had no idea how to transcribe this)

Hello! I'm new on this site, but I hope I can get along with everyone here! 🤗

Hello everyone! I'm glad to be part of the community.

Wow, it's my first post with art in it! I have a lot of art that I can post right now, so I won't spam with all the drawings, but I hope you'll enjoy them. ❤️
