I never noticed how much difference color modes had over RAM usage until recently! (This program in the gif is Krita).

CMYK uses 41.5 MiB per layer, RGB uses 33.2 MiB, and Grayscale uses 16.6 MiB! It probably doesn't sound like too much~ that is, until you accrue X amount of layers while multitasking other programs. Save often and back up your important files, everyone!

I've been using this old McCalls pattern and let me tell u......it feels so complicated for no good reason. I've been working on making alterations+ experimenting with altering my fabric because it's /too/ stretchy and warps with all the tiny parts. Maybe I will sell some once I'm happy with them? 👀

Today I learned the G in didn't stand for graphics. I don't know how I missed that one for twenty years!

Happy Tuesday, my lovely Masto.ARTists!

Today I have the task of informing you all on some moderation policies we're going to be following in a much stricter sense from now on.

As we know, a very popular Free Open Source art software called the Gnu Image Manipulation Program exists, and its very popular acronym is also an ableist slur.

From now on, we're going to require that when referring to the program, folks use the full name, or the term "Gnu IMP/GnuIMP" instead of the popular acronym.

Are you alive and doing okay?

Not sure what else to do with this one. Maybe it's done. I'll have a lil rest and check on it later.

normalize scheduling your chores into smaller chunks, and be at peace with taking breaks between those chunks. there's no shame in giving four quarters ass if that's all you can do at a stretch, because .25 will add up into 100

@noelle last time I checked the older versions of clip studio paint from before the "new online sign in registration" worked on wine.

Even then it'll be quirky so browse the workarounds or browse for the OS you're using. Best bet is with an older version though!


I had a weird dream about magic pencils. Me and a group of people were trapped in a cave but we were each drawing with a magic pencil. Then suddenly some pencils went missing and they started blaming each other. I got accused of stealing by one but they studied my pencil and said "no, this one is yours I can tell because you always over-sharpen yours". I woke up and no? I do not 'over-sharpen' my pencil?! But now I'm going to wonder.
