Hey, do y'all have any suggestions for sites to host (is that the right word?) comics? My friend and I have no idea what's hip and popular anymore.

She was gonna post stuff on smackjeeves but I'm pretty sure that's almost a thing of the past? I remember there was a really sketchy thing that happened with one big site, but I don't even remember which it was.

I was gonna make a post about how I'm sparing my art twitter followers by keeping my Scooby Doo rants on my personal twitter, but I have twice as many followers there so maybe that's what the people want?

scooby doo discourse I guess?? lol Show more

Also, if you'd like to direct y/our artsy & creative friends to enjoy the power of the :fediverse: of artsy folks, you have many options: :squishygecko: :tootplanet: for your :tumblsink: NSFW friends

or search :mastodon:

Thanks for supporting the fediverse & inspiring others!

I couldn’t participate last time but I loved this design by PeoMichie (twitter) too much to pass it!

some ocs i never posted anywhere.
left is bosh, she's a lesbian con artist who flirts with the detective trying to arrest her. right is epi, he's a pan arms dealer who loves his husband and family v much.
i had a whole criminal found family thing but haven't drawn the rest of them :tialove:

I found the blog of an illustrator who makes high-quality enviro commission for next to nothing. I thought maybe she was very fast but it seems each illustration takes between 7 to 14 hours to finish. So I guess maybe she lives in a country with a low GDP? I can't find any info. Anyway, artists who sell commissions for peanuts lower the minimum wage for the whole profession. It impacts everyone, so if you're an artist, even a beginner, think about it and please don't do it!

Conflicted between keeping up with the latest social media trends to maintain (build) a following for the sake of my art and just fading into obscurity and taking a nap.

I have so much world building and, like, such specific expectations for the environment art in my comic.

But I don't think I can make it. Like, sure I can make it, but I will hate the process of doing so and I'm afraid that will ruin making the comic for me.

A long overdue half of an art trade with of his kick butt space bounty hunter and treasure hunter, Ava!

along with the exhortations to new folks to use content warnings, I would like to exhort masto veterans to be patient with new users, and to *please* include explanations of common abbreviations so the new folks can get a handle on them. examples:
pol = politics
uspol = US politics
mh = mental health
tf = transformation
+/- signs = positive or negative modifiers, so "uspol +" would refer to a story about US politics that is actually good (for a change).

feel free to reply to this with other common-ish examples if you can think of them!

Follow the artists more than this account. Star 🌟, boost 🔁, follow & enjoy being inspired by them daily. Buy their art or donate to their liberapay, paypal, kofi, twitch, picarto, or patreon etc bc you snagged that lovely art for your desktop or phone bg. …what’s hanging on your wall that’s original‽

Mastodon is server software. Anyone with a web server can set up a Mastodon instance.

If you're interested in creating 2D animation, you might want to take a look at the short film "Hero":

There's a brief set of behind-the-scenes clips at the end of the short to illustrate how it was made.

"Hero" was created on Grease Pencil, a set of 2D graphics tools in the open source graphics suite Blender.

Anyone can download and use Blender free:

Ahhhhh. I just tried to post something but it's not posted? I'll wait a bit before I try again. :/

was reminded this morning about Adobe's horrible subscription model and wanted to mention the Affinity suite. i've been using their PS and Illustrator clones for most of this year and they're great.

$50 each, no subscription, and do almost everything the Adobe stuff does and some stuff it doesn't.

their InDesign clone is in free beta right now, too. oh, and they have ipad versions as well.

no affiliation, i'm just ecstatic there's a real alternative.
