So I will be moving to my new account @ChrisTalleras as I think this username is more appropriate. So follow me there if you want to continue to follow me. 😀

I have Joined! :O
So what is this place?
i accidentally skipped the tutorial :p

More people are speaking out on Robert Brown's discord server that I called out earlier today, pretty interesting development. I'll keep you guys up to date with things if you want. Here is an example that was shared with me.

@Sofastrangler thanks for sharing! I think it's important for people to know about, like you say. That is a negative, arrogant community based off of selfishness. Elitism is for sure. Everyone starts at the bottom. That's one of the reasons I like our community here. We are all on this journey together and we support each other. And your art doesn't have to fit a certain style either. But yeah, we will all get there :)

I am sorry for bringing all this negativity to Mastodon today but I feel like this is something that people needs to know.

And also I encourage people to find out for them selves and make their own opinion. So here is the link to the server which I don't personally have access to anymore.

Please don't hang them out in the server either, if you don't like them then leave the server instead and spread the message. 😎 👍

To further elaborate on my shadow banning.

With a new rule on the server they wanted to regulate more what kind of posts the server had so that the server looks good something I am very critical of as they only want people who make them look good to post.

In this server I had posted these two images (below) and written "this is totally concept art" in a way mocking these new rules. I got no warning or no information about doing anything wrong. And then I got shadow banned.

To explain further, the modship of this server has a mentality of elitism and wanting to have more professionals on their server. They justify their decisions based on professionalism but themselves act in unprofessional ways.

Before I was shadow banned from the server there was talk about kicking people they didn't like the art of, particularly beginners as they taint the server.

I think this can be good to know for people before joining this server.

I want to bring some awareness about an artist by the name of Robert Brown. He has a Youtube following as well as a discord server.

In his server he lays out his own rules which is fine, but what is most curious is that the modship of that server acts with a certain kind of authoritarianism where people they don't like gets banned like me.

As it is such a big discord server I feel that I have responsibility give attention about this to the creative community.

A while back I wrote this quick little beginners look at how I use watercolour and basic techniques:

It also has the step-by-step image showing the layers that went into painting the clothing folds on my "L'Opossum" painting. :)

Watercolour is great, very forgiving, the paints last forever, and so much fun! Give it a try! :D

New YouTube trend idea; dye your hair with acrylics

@Krita is officially on Mastodon! Welcome - FOSS all the way!

There is nothing to worry about with this vampire, he is totally friendly, I assure you... heheh

Lately I'm kind of obsessed with Mastodon. I'm just so pleased with the UI and the community here. Find it extremely enjoyable.

One of the most interesting things our teacher is telling us is to never forget to have fun with drawing. Your pour your mood into your art. If you're bored or frustrated, it will be visible in the finished art. If you're engaged and havin fun, same thing.
