You can find me on artstation, Twitter, Instagram, and Tumblr all under the name @emmikatjohnson !
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.
#webcomic #help #pleaseandthankyou
scooby doo discourse I guess?? lol Show more
Why does everything about SDMI make me so irrationally angry?
Throwing this into the masto void because one of my friends on twitter actually likes it and I don't want to make them feel bad for bringing it up.
BUT my blood is boiling yet again over something that that show decided to change about established canon that they didn't even have to reference.
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:

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!
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!

HELLO NEW USERS!
Mastodon is server software. Anyone with a web server can set up a Mastodon instance.
Here's a guide to Mastodon, with many frequently-asked questions: https://github.com/joyeusenoelle/GuideToMastodon/
If you're on the mastodon.social instance, here are our rules: https://mastodon.social/about/more
If you're on another Mastodon instance, you can usually find their rules at <instance URL>/about/more, just like mastodon.social's.
Btw: If you need help backing up your #tumblr or their backup tool is not working for you I'll gladly help you save your stuff
(feel free to boost)
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:
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.
BFA in Media Arts and Animation, I'm currently illustrating a children's book with my dad!
