does anyone know why I'm not getting any notifications from Mastodon to my phone? I have my phone settings set to show them 🤔
do I work on my game art project or do I do an acrylic painting of an owl. Decisions, decisions.🤔
Hi there, I'm FlipFlop I'm an illustrator currently working on my colorwork with a focus in concept and editorial! This piece is from a project called Opposites Attract and is titled 'Forget Me Not' #introduction #mastoart #art #illustration #painting #digitalpainting #digital #elephant #flowers #forgetmenots #conceptart #concept #hithere #retropost

Advice on breaking into commercial illustration. Show more
I was just asked:
"Can I ask more about how you broke into the field? I dropped out of art school and it feels like there aren't many paths to proffesional gigs without the connections"
I'm a high school dropout who entered the field while living in a rural town of 600-ish folks. Zero connections -- unless my pet rooster was an agent and I never knew about it.
Success is partly luck outside of your control, but only you dictate your volume of work. I made tons and posted it everywhere.
More work in the world = better odds of people seeing it. That part of the equation is entirely up to you.
Trying to add more backgrounds to my characters. Any tips on how I could make pieces like this work better? I'm always struggling with the background overtaking the subject, so usually I don't use backgrounds at all, or end up blurring them like this. Open to critique and suggestions! https://mastodon.art/media/EimSnxmrfwwdKlrpmtA
Finally have some time to post some art on here. Hello! I love exploring diversity and creating D&D themed art as well as doing photo studies. Always looking for ways that I can grow and improve ^_^ #introductions https://mastodon.art/media/XyiRp4VT13G55STQQ0k https://mastodon.art/media/NA2SICIFU1ig6MFv09g https://mastodon.art/media/vc8ujL1Mb7fWtHW0Zq0 https://mastodon.art/media/eq81vu8c6VB9E2FX42o
I also don't know how gifs work on here so any insight would be grrrrreat
bad days at work just really make me wish I could be at home doing some art. What does everyone here like to create when they're having a difficult day? I tend to paint powerful women.
