Pinned toot

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!

Ok so why did nobody tell me how good Allie X's music is...? It's SO GOOD.

Also, I found the first music obsession of 2019... Neon Ocean by New Dialogue. They're a new band so they only have two songs out, but this one makes me hopeful!

Iโ€™m excited to make a big announcement!

I am launching a Patreon, where you can support my work and see more of it. The official launch will be January 23, one week from today!

If you like what I do and want to support me so I can keep creating, and if you want exclusive access to my art and process, youโ€™ll want to check this out!

The Patreon page will also be a community for learning and inspiration through a private Discord Server. Anyone will be able to ask me about my process there.

I started doing weekly spreads/to-do's similar to bulletjournal in my normal diary and it seems to be helping with staying organized and planning things. I can already see the ways to improve it next week. :D

I think it's time to start looking at what's written in the bujo spreads I see everywhere instead of just going "Oh, what a pretty design!" :P

(Mine is not ~designed~ at all, it's just quick freehand squares drawn with a ballpoint pen...)

A friend of mine asked for resources for her to study human anatomy, and I thought maybe I'd share the links here, too!

The thread will be a few toots long, so I'll put them under a CW. ^^

So here we go! Art anatomy/life drawing references ahoy! :bob_ross:

I really like the heart where you can encourage the troops! The way my character says "I believe in you" is so sweet. And I died at the book club joke. ๐Ÿ˜‚ Lots of really neat dialogue clips in this one.

[, no spoilers] Finished the latest episode and, once more, really liked the story. This season was some of ANet's finest work so far. The new map & the sound update made for a great experience too, it's very pleasant to explore and just talk to NPCs and follow the events.

Back to after the long break. Everyone recommended here is kind, helpful and interesting :)

@WandelStock - hiker and photographer of the German countryside
@Owl_Ask - comic and character artist. Lots of ink.
@AesAthena - Illustrator, books and more
@he_xie - fantasy/dark fantasy artist
@averybee - character artist with lots of color
@PalmerAnimates - artist and animator with a teaching spirit
@strawberry - artist of lots of cool things, including creatures.

This photo of Christina Aguilera is the most 00s thing I've seen in a while

๐Ÿ’ช During Day 4 of Yoga with Adriene's "Dedicate" challenge, I found a pose that does WONDERS to the pain in my right arm.

It's an extended child's pose with the arms reaching to one side (left to stretch the right side and vice versa). I can feel the pain from my scapula to the tips of my fingers, and this pose really helps stretch it out. Seems to work way better than any standing stretch I've tried.

Perhaps it can be helpful to someone!

:bob_ross: I've been trying to juggle several art pieces at once - something that I never do, as I tend to zone in on one thing and go at it until it's finished - and the most challenging part is switching the stages/styles. Like, right now I really just want to do pencil drawings all day, and digital painting sounds so unappealing.

I think I have trouble switching mindsets from one thing to another in general, anyway. Something I should probably look into.

I get so confused when people talk about how much they love The Messenger because all I can think of is this mess from 2000

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Mess

(Me and my friend used to think it's sooooo cooool, too...)

Okay, I think boosting my Pixelfed profile should work okay for some photo posts ๐Ÿค” I'll have to think about what I want to repost and what just stays on there, I suppose.

Does anyone know if there is a way, or if there will be a way, to automatically post to the Masto account? I realise I don't really understand how it works, lol. It would be so useful for art posts, though.

Sometimes the best self care is doing that hard thing you've been putting off.

I'm becoming more and more aware what kind of I want to make:
I want my art to be spontaneous. Like a feeling straight from the gut. No self-censoring.
I don't want to pack additional meaning into my paintings. I don't want to construct it consciously. Subconsciously has to suffice.
I want my art to be accessible. I want it to be raw, understandable without the need to know too much about art, art history etc.
I want my art to be easy to ship, without excessive amounts of waste.
