Time for an

I have returned to Mastodon! I chose the art community because that is what I like to do and share when online.

Currently, I am working on a webcomic project about and alchemist and a demon. Still working on my buffer!

In my day job, I am a manager of electrical engineers. I used to be a field engineer myself. If anyone wants to know how electricity or airplanes work, ask me!

I also curate an artistic resource doc. Feel free to use it!

I am having too much fun with the colorize tool and now I am playing with gradient layers. Somehow I think I made a ghost.

Colorize on Clip Studio makes it look like I know how to use digital watercolor.

I am so tempted to just do a comic all in sketches instead of lineart and color it this way. Seems so much easier!

This is Kel. She's a pirate.

Since I am figuring out how this works, I'm gonna start a hashtag for my project.

This is for

Astrath is a blacksmith. Her favorite things are her hammer and using other people as armrests, as she is taller than anyone else in the story (even her brothers)

work: inclusion, diversity and equity 

Hey fedis! I'm working on ID&E initiatives for my org and I'm looking for feedback from others about programs they've built or seen built that provided specific, measurable results.

I am fighting for dedicated headcount allocations, so I need to be specific about what work we'll use that allocation for and how we'll measure the impact of that work. I am specifically targeting team-level, tactical stuff as opposed to top-down initiatives on education, awareness, etc.

If you identify as a member of an underrepresented group within your workplace, and you have examples of actions your team/org/employer has taken that has either made material improvements to your experience and/or tried but failed to do so, I'd be very interested to hear about it.

Boosts welcomed for reach. Thanks!

Things you are allowed - nay, encouraged! - to say here on .art:

Punch Nazis
Black Lives Matter
Trans Rights are Human Rights
Be Gay Do Crime

What did I miss :artblackcat:

Here are some pieces! from my upcoming comic, Tangled Threads.

We have, from order upper left to lower right:

Mel talking with Scyene
Seth crashing down on Nys
Mel as a Magical Girl (she is much too timid to wear this clothing in the story, but she looks good in it)
Scyene reference sheet (I took away his hair)

CW: Nudity. Nothing explicit, just a pretty redheaded woman sitting on her heels. This is a figure practice that turned into a color practice from back a few months ago. I am working on color and light, and even with all the technical flaws, I like this one a lot.

This feed is gonna take some getting used to. Ever tried eating something with a fork with one eye closed?

Its sort of like that. Everything looks familiar, but not exactly where you expect it to be when you reach for it.

I am champing at the bit to post more art - but I don't want to stress the servers when they are clearly having it rough :D

Anyhow, I like to draw people in a heavily inked style. I wanna share!

I was actually on the .art instance several years back - made a new account though, had to leave another name behind.

I'm looking forward to things here though!

Gonna do the Mastodon thing now. Meet one of my horrible children!

Her name is Astrath and she is a demon.
