Pinned toot

Hi everyone! ❀
I'm Naki and I'm trying to figure out how this works! So I'm just throwing some of my pics in here, enjoy?
Nice to meet y'all! πŸ˜€

Instance suggestions needed + smut. 

Just to emphasise, the battle isn't over about #Article13:

"But there’s also opportunities for the courts to rein in the Directive – or even throw out its worst articles entirely. ... Article 13 is meant to be compatible with the older E-Commerce Directive, which explicitly forbids any requirement to proactively monitor for IP enforcement (a provision that was upheld and strengthened by the ECJ in 2011)."

This could take many years to happen with many possible twists.

Something different! Made this cyborg P.I. for author Mark Renshaw over on birdsite. Still working on the big illustration for the bjornament.

I'm on finally! :D
Who's around there, too? I want some art folks to follow :D
Also I read somewhere I could import stuff from instagram there, anyone knows how that works?

Talent is a myth.

Don't let anyone tell you that you're not "gifted" enough to do art. All it takes is patience, focus and discipline, and those can be trained.

Look for the right teachers and learning material, surround yourself with artists better than yourself, and generally work a shit ton - you can make it.

Thank you all for all your help in figuring out which hashtag to use!

Thanks for all the recs here! ❀
I'm going to check this out ❀
Atm I'm wondering how this will work on a platform like mastodon, since posts like this (with multiple answers) tend to become messy pretty quickly 😬 How do you discuss ideas??

Hey folks! Are there any comic writers/crime fiction writers around?
Im looking for some active groups/discords/tandem partners bc I'm alright at being a comic editor but I SUUUCK at writing a script πŸ’ͺπŸ˜…πŸ˜‚ ❀


Use reference.

There's 3 types: 1) Inspo - other (concept) , styles you like etc. 2) Direct Reference - real world objects similar to what you're designing 3) Indirect Reference - unrelated, but has aspects you want to integrate.

Here's my reference sheet. For 3) I chose an armadillo/pangolin combo for the back shape.

From my thumbnail I do a rough sketch, starting to figure out perspective. Next: grid and using ref

Three of my Ocs, Alessa, Richard and Shar. I started this trio to draw cute fashion and ended up hating the paper πŸ˜…
Anyways, enjoy? πŸ€”β€

Why arguments against a 70% marginal tax rate for income over $10 million is absurd (look at all that money they'd STILL have):

(Semi)professional creators out there!! How did y'all choose the name you're putting your stuff out there?
Was it spontaneous and just kinda stuck or suits you have a decision process before? Do you publish art under a pseudonym or do you use your real name?
I'm thinking of pucking up freelance work 4real but I have to register myself at the tax authorities and well, I have to give them a name πŸ˜…

Hello! I'm Mo.

I'm a life-long artist who got burnt out in graphic design school. I'm finding my creative footing again with painting and sculpture, and I'm always looking for inspiration.

I am also a clown in training! I work and learn with @RussSharek in the classical art of European silliness. Along the way I've picked up juggling and ukulele. I'm looking forward to learning to walk on stilts and ride a unicycle this year!

I'm on Mastadon because facebook is the worst. : )

Little Law sketching feelings.
Law is one of the few OCs of mine that actually draw/paintb themselves πŸ€” A good bunch of them are creative in various fields, like music, fashion, crime or writing, but I'd have to scan my notes if anyone else of them draws.
Guess Shar does, a little? πŸ‘€

I have surgery in a week, but in the meantime if anyone wants an icon drawing in this style for $15 message me or email me.

Little Chess on the roof, longing for the world and adventure ❀
She doesn't know about the cruelty of that world, or how dangerous her adventures will be...
Watercolor paper has this annoying format between A4 and A3. I know it's so you can just cut it down after you streched and glued it on a surface (so it won't get wavy while working w water) but STILL πŸ˜•

Just a reminder: Succubi and incubi are gender-neutral terms according to linguistics.
