between everything else I managed to not post a new #editbacklog in over a month.
(Inktober is also still happening, I have a backlog of like 10 drawings)
2018, Istanbul #Turkey
Just your average sunset.
Mastodon's own @awhaleslantern contains this following gem:
#inktober2018 finally starting to catch up.

@eylul thank you for your thoughts. what i like about fediverse is that we can have longer conversations than 140/280 tweets.
I agree that there's a unsuitable, improper force at work, where to stay relevant contemporary artist has to produce a lot more than artist used to. it is an inherent property of increasingly faster life fueled by later capitalism. the incessant acceleration and drive for growth.
It seems like #Krita is still looking for someone to manage their #Peertube channel. They already have an account, so it would probably just be a matter of taking the videos from Youtube and uploading them to Peertube. Hopefully there is someone willing to help them.
Here is my new #ubuntu animal illustration :). Inspired by Ubuntu release 18.10. https://www.deviantart.com/sylviaritter/art/Cosmic-Cuttlefish-766515479 #art #illustration #mastoart
@eylul Apparently you can warm up masking tape with a hairdryer and it should melt the glue and make things come off easier. I'm usually using gumstrip for watercolour so I haven't tried it myself though.
I think it's beautiful how imperfections make art. Software developers work really hard to add imperfections to art programs and CGI, because humans can sense when something is too perfect; we're made uncomfortable by it.
We love the grit and grain of the page and the graphite. The rough and irregular edges of ink and chalk. The imprecision of the human hand.
Don't be perfect. Be you. That's what people want. That's art.
#humanalgorithms posting this only because I posted the WIP and I am trying to be better about posting about the process rather than the results only.
Sometimes things go wrong. This one won't make it to any portfolio. Its a bit unfortunate because I like the resulting drawing. However, the masking tape related tearing and inexperience with acrylic damaged the paper too much...
Mastodon doesn't punish you for living your life.
It doesn't actively take metrics of your interactions to gauge your social or cultural capital.
Never will it demand that you post this much to be or stay relevant to the community, disappearing into the void if you don't meet The Quota.
So please, for the love of toot, take breaks whenever you feel you need to! We'll be here when you get back!
