So excited that we were finally able to share the Mastodon Artist with y'all today. I had a ton of fun making him. :) It was an honor, and I was very happy to make our place a little more unique. I have to admit, I put a little of myself into the design, although this character is meant to be androgynous and represent us all :)

We recently changed the .art rules to remove the restriction that any explicit NSFW art had to be posted unlisted.

It's working great so far! Everyone has been CW-ing their art appropriately :D

I'd like to introduce some refinement to it, to cater to our users who want to see none/some/all of the NSFW art.

If you're posting something explicit (that goes beyond artistic nudity), can you also tag with ? This will allow users to filter out the more extreme content :)

Thanks all!

Some old sequential pages I did as portfolio pieces.
I grew up as a huge Ultraman fan, I owe a lot to these so-called "sub-cultures" to kept me drawing for so many years.

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:

Some general 'best practices' for new Masto users! :mastoart:

As our rules state, any art that's adult/NSFW/sexual/violent etc. in nature needs to be hidden behind a content warning (the 'CW' button beneath the toot window) or with the media marked as sensitive (you'll see this option after adding media to your toot). It's not enough to just hide the media, though - you have to say *why* it's content warned, otherwise users can't make an informed decision on whether to click or not.

Wow, sorry if I've missed any notifications from friends recently. There's so much activity here lately due to recent events.

Ya know, it's fine that Storyboard Pro crashes several times every time I use it. It's not like it's industry standard, required, pro software that costs $70/month or anything.

My process:
Read script > make beat sheet/shot list > thumbnails > roughs > cleanup

Not counting revisions anywhere from thumbnails to final cleanup.

It's really been helping my mental health lately not to grumble, but be grateful.

I had to park far away yesterday. I can complain about sucky parking, but it helped me a lot to remember how grateful I am for that car, my first car that's less than a decade old.

Personally, I think the problem with modern animation is that there aren't enough dragons.

He friends, what's the most free and open search engine? Any recs? I've been using Duck Duck Go for a while, and it's decent as far as search goes, but I'm not 100% sure of how free/open it is.

Hopefully this makes sense. I know it's not software, per se, but I'm not a fan of certain search engines that control what you see.

Was going through some old drawings and found these guys. (Number 11 will shock you, etc.)

It seems we have a wave of new arrivals here at Mastodon.art! Feel free to ask questions of me, the other mods or @Curator as always :mastohi: ☺️

An post with hashtags of your interests is always a great way to get started here and meet new friends.

Take note of our local timeline which is specifically just our .art community posts.

And our TOS for more info: mastodon.art/terms

Welcome, welcome!
