Pinned toot

Hi, mastodon.art! I'm Crow, I draw (...sometimes), and I'm here to spend time around artsy people (and probably rant, sorry).

My tools of choice are watercolors, pencils and liners.

A.I.nktober prompts are live! Now you have your choice between the official list of reasonable #Inktober prompts, or these entirely bonkers A.I. generated lists.

Oh shit, October is in four days!😵

I was really hoping that this year the month will be calmer for me and I'll finally manage to complete Inktober, but nope! I'm starting a new job on 2nd. 😱 RIP me.

Honestly getting tired of "advice" how to get over self-doubt/self-criticism that boils down to "uh... just don't?"

It's a mental thing, I get that; it's all about changing the way one looks at their art and themself. And I'm sure those well-meaning advisors didn't use a controlled process to get through it, so it's like asking someone to teach you how to look at those funky-patterned 3D pictures. ("You just squint and it's there!")

And yet. THIS IS NOT HELPFUL, DAMMIT.

I'm also kind of in love with this photo editing Android app. The GUI is a nightmare but it can do some freakishly advanced stuff for a mobile app - levels/curves, pasting images, text, color editing...

Hey fediverse, here's a lucky pencil for you! 😄 I wish you a lot of art time - because even if it doesn't go well, at least it's GOING.

P.S. This isn't a chain post, I just love to finish pencils like this. SO satisfying!

P.P.S. I use a pencil holder, I'm not a masochist.🤣

Two plein-air I did couple days ago. I'm not happy enough with them for Instagram, but they are a step further from anything I've done recently, soooo... yay, I guess?

What I like: how I managed focus by varying the level of detail in the marker drawing
What I don't like: muddy colors; the horrible decision to add the background on the pagoda painting (instead of leaving it stylized, just on white)

I want to jump on the bandwagon, but I haven't seen Blade Runner yet (I know, I know). So, here's some replicATOR instead of a replicANT.
