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!

Great Jaggi! My first large hunt, many years ago, was this boi. He'll always have a special place in my heart.

He's up on redbubble: redbubble.com/people/kathuman/

And there is a process gif on Patreon for patrons: https://www.patreon com/kathuman

Re: Ohuhu markers, Im quite liking them! Im not used to using markers but I'm liking the process so far.

Swear I'm still alive! Here's the next in the series: "Guidance".

I used to doodle jet fighters in my school books in primary school, and here I am again 25 years later! This was 40 minutes in Procreate with the Derwent and HB Pencil brushes.

Was meant to finish this ages ago but here we are! A couple of chibis for my best friend :>

(I would love to hear your feedback/thoughts on this post! <3)

By using two sprite layers, base and lighting, I can use code to change asset colours while maintaing some cool, two-tone colour depth for the shading.

Saves me exporting out dozens of different sprites!

Check out our latest project update. We're kicking off development for a whole new year! 🎊
