This year I got to work with plenty of amazing people and get a few steps closer to where I want to be creatively. I am insanely grateful for all the support and I hope we can make 2019 ROCK! ๐Ÿ˜Ž๐ŸŽ‰๐Ÿ’—

๐Ÿ‚ The Fall ๐Ÿ‚

Finally got some time to sit down and paint a portrait just for myself. I've been really inspired by the gorgeous fall weather, and the notions of the upcoming dreariness and rain...

โœจ EMOTE TUTORIAL โœจ

Hiii, it's finally done! I wrote a tutorial on how I go about creating emotes and other types of small art, including some things to think about, tips and tricks, and a "cheat sheet" for Discord, Twitch, and Mixer emote sizes and chat colours.

I hope you like it! Please let me know if you have any feedback, I'd love to improve this tutorial if I can!

BONUS: Download link for the layered .PSD and .PNGs you can use however you like. Just no commercial use, please! drive.google.com/open?id=15sGM

Is Pokemon Go SERIOUS about a freaking Eevee being the only weekly research reward for TWO MONTHS? I wonder what made them do this because it's quite disappointing.

โœจ August Wrap-Up (for one-off & monthly supporters) โœจ

In this month's wrap-up, I talk about art, learning node animation, and share some insights on the recent travels. Not much art that hasn't been published already this time! :D

Also, a heads up that Mastodonโ€ขART will be switching from Approval-based Registration to Invite Only sometime in the near future. I'll get you all a precise date soon. :dali_persistance:

We'll likely remain in Invite Only mode until we secure enough funding to cover our hosting/operating costs. Once that goal is reached, we'll open registration back up. :mona_kiss:

Ways you can donate to :mastoart:โ€ขART:

Interest in the GW2 announcement dropped with the "teaser stream" because I hate snow and snowy areas in videogames :T

(The teaser is a snowy background with what looks like ice-corrupted characters)

Also means more of those stupid ice elementals that slow you down uuughhhh

I really want to ~freshen up my hair colour, but I find dying it regularly so incredibly exhausting. I'm thinking of doing a henna treatment... it's been so long since I've done that. Hmm.

I watched a few VMA performances and some of them were actually good? I can't remember the last time I cared about the VMAs and feel like all the best performances are in the past (namely anything Britney did).

But this time, Missy Elliott absolutely killed it, Lizzo was super fun, Miley sounded good while toning it down, and even Normani gave me some Oops/Satisfaction vibes (wardrobe malfunction not withstanding).

Shitpost, kinda 

Not sure if there's a point to joining this round of hashtag visible women lol

But consider this a reminder that it's active on other social media if you feel like posting your art!

Ah imagine the future where we'll be able to mute faces and objects the way we can mute words now

I've decided to start playing Alan Wake, after a decade of (re)installing it every fall only to never play it. So far, this is the best thing about it: the Coconut song.

Suddenly a bunch of good music news o.o

+ Two new Lana songs in a video
+ Taylor Swift's Lover album is pretty fun
+ Poets of the Fall confirmed in Control videogame, including new songs and a "never done before" thing (???)

I'd like to take a moment of your timeline to ask folks to use CamelCase in your tags. I didn't know until I came to masto that this helps people who use screen readers parse them as words rather than jumbles of characters. When there are multiple words mashed together in a tag, try capitalising each one, for instance #CommissionMe #CallForArt #LookingForArtist

you can go to an online screen reader site like this one to check out the difference it makes: ttsreader.com #accessibility

>>In consonance with the pioneering 19th-century information designer Emma Willardโ€™s conviction that knowledge is most readily received when โ€œaddressed to the eye,โ€ Guillemin understood that the fundamental laws of nature appear too remote and slippery to the human mind. To make them comprehensible, he had to make their elegant abstract mathematics tangible and captivating for the eye.<<

I'm looking for Pokemon Go friends!

If you want to be friends, please comment or DM me (you can send your code or I can DM you mine, either is fine with me - I just don't like posting my code publicly).

I do my best to send gifts often and will gleefully look at the postcards from you! I haven't played much this summer, but I think I'll pick it back up again as the weather cools down. :)

One of my biggest 'small joys' is unloading all of my coin change in a store where they always seem to struggle with smaller bills and change. It always seems to make the cashier's day! :D
