Mental health rant:
Sorry I haven't been posting over here that often. My brain has been doling some awful things so I've been taking time out for self-care. I have a nasty habit of comparing myself to the various professional artists who work 8 hrs a day on their work to myself who often has less than 2-3 hrs a day. Not only has the T*mblr debacle got me riled up, but this too.
I had a few people ask me why certain herbs ,spices and flowers were used on that fire piece, so here's a brief explanation of their symbolism:
Rosemary: Love + memory, specifically fidelity
Clove: Friendship + good luck
Red Poppy: Pleasure
Nettle: Protection + expulsion of bad spirits
Cinnamon: Love, happiness + wealth
Orange Rose: Desire + fascination
@Corvusheart Thank you! <3 I'm quite happy with how he turned out... I'm now trying to work out how to get him on my D&D notebooks. XD
Loyalty is a tough critic to please...
"Yes...yes! This portrait is sufficient!"
Darn it, Loyalty. #artwip
@dona Just looking into it now and managed to find a supplier that produced gasoline and turkey stuffing scents.
Yes, I am aware volcanoes smell like sulphur.
I don't think you guys want that as a scratch and sniff scent.
Important things I am now considering if this is ever printed:
- how expensive is scratch and sniff?
- do cinnamon, rosemary and rose scents go together?
- what do volcanoes smell like?
So this weekend, I've been channelling my inner Bob Ross and painting happy little volcanoes.
@micahdraws This is far too cool for words. <3
Having a little bit of a muse for my water genasi/tiefling design.
I've always considered tieflings as having hooves but this doesn't make sense if the tiefling has connections with the ocean. Hooves don't provide a benefit adaptation for ocean life. Yet, if a tiefling has frog-like legs or otter-like legs, do they still read as tiefling? Abyssal/deep sea tieflings like this though are definitely a fun concept.
I've decided to drop the the big blue photo social network and get myself a Pixelfed account. I have very little on there at the moment but feel free to come over and say hi! https://pixelfed.social/froginajar
Sometimes I geniunely worry what Apple are doing.
@jfml It's definitely that hardware less than a generation old aren't upgradable. I find it a bit worrying that expensive products are wasted, that's all.
