Now that I get the basic idea, it's time I Introduced myself.
I am a 2D generalist, composer and pixel artist working to make games and teach what I learn! I have been in training on http://streak.club/u/blkmkt to improve my visual art skills.
I made a selection of tutorial videos on KORG M01D and DSN-12, which are 3DS apps you can make music with, back in 2014! https://www.youtube.com/user/blkmktdotnet
Here is a selection of my notable works! https://mastodon.art/media/eYBhuXD67gJiQKLUFtM https://mastodon.art/media/cuBm9SixhoxKg2hXLPI https://mastodon.art/media/LCGamUlcu1RSE0eteNU https://mastodon.art/media/V8i49SaJV7Jad2fkYZo
I've finally launched my Patreon page! I'm going to use it to post tutorials, artwork and scripts that I have written over the years to help myself do my daily figure work. This thing is still a work in progress, but I'm glad I made it before the pricing deadline. Watch this space -- See you there!
Funds are low, so I'm doing some commission streaming today. I haven't been doing so as much as I'd like due to health concerns, but I'd like to try to ramp my streaming back up!
Streaming live now at https://picarto.tv/blkmkt and https://twitch.tv/blkmkt

Even Mastodon, Peertube and all the other related initiatives end up getting my support, but the overhead of figuring it all out is beyond what I've got available anymore. I end up really adoring the work of moonscript on twitter, who made things like streak.club, itch.io and all that. I can handle stuff like that, and I can recommend it to loved ones without having to be around to be tech support. That's the goal, I guess.
I'm always very sympathetic to the mission of FLOSS stuff, and donate to the ones I like when I can. Krita is getting pretty good, once you make its workspace more reasonable! But Inkscape does not an Illustrator replacement make, and just in general years of being around technical folk telling me to RTFM, and just the density of that entire world, Linux is something I dip a toe in sometimes but am weary to do anything more.
First issue, is I like Windows. Specifically Windows 10. I liked Windows 8. I like the priorities of that OS, its design language and the middle ground between Apple's intense control over what I can do and my past experience with Linux being "you're a grown up now, write your own drivers" and all that kind of stuff. I'm at the point in my life where a computer is an appliance to me and I don't have the desire or time to tinker anymore.
Yesterday I did a routine reformatting/reinstallation of Windows on my home machine and I get closer and closer to wanting to dualboot some flavor of Linux and try that out, but I got burned real bad last time I tried that. The tech part of me is always curious about it but the need-to-make-a-living-as-an-artist-and-graphic-designer part of me is still... skeptical.
hey ik a lot of people don't just intuitively know how to write image descriptions and alt texts so here's a resource! if anyone has any other resources re: image description and accessibility in tech feel free to add!
Eve is pretty respectfully depicted in the first game. In the second, she is instantly in a skin tight suit with an expanded chest and every shot of her is from a worm's eye view. I'm not Mr. No-fun-allowed but its so exhausting to see this every single time! I loved the first game but this new art direction is distracting in the sequel.

Yesterday was my 1500th day doing figure drawing and other training work using @thestreakclub - I'm proud of myself for sticking to it, but now it's time for me to rest. I'll be focused on larger scale work and doing 20 figures minimum no-matter-what will be unsustainable.
Hello newcomers! I'm an artist for hire. You can commission me at http://blkmkt.net/commission and watch me work. I will be launching a patreon where I will post my work, tutorials and the time saving scripts I write to speed up repetitive tasks! Thanks for following me!
The FOSS world must understand “just install Linux” won’t cut it. We must make “the whole widget” as Jobs would say.
But don’t listen to me, let Stallman make the case:
Richard: I’ve never installed the GNU plus Linux system on a computer myself.
Richard: I always found someone who knew how to do that. Got someone to do it for me.
Me: So it was so difficult that you have not installed…
Richard: No, it's just that I was so busy, I didn’t wanna learn how.
I just finished this piece as part of an art trade with @N0NREALIST! It's nice to explore how to solve problems in this art style, especially keeping colors constrained!
