Hello Mastodon 👋 My name is Julia and I've introduced myself before, but it was time for a new introduction :)
I like #art, I like creating in every form. I do #traditionalArt (#WaterColor #coloredPencil ) just as much as #digitalArt (#3D #krita #procreate )
I've got a webblog and do some #webdesign and #graphicdesign for it.
I also like to try new ways of creating like #needleFelting #bookbinding #origami #caligraphy
Quick information for everyone:
I love to follow artists, especially artists that are still growing.
Why? Because I'm able to see a sudden jump in their skill after a week, month or a year. It always gives me a happy smile on my face when I see that someone has grown with their art. Even if they themself don't notice it yet. :)
So if you follow me or interact with me, I'll almost definitly follow you :)
To have a first artsy piece on here as well, I'm uploading my #meettheartist drawing I did last week. It describes me somewhat well, so who wishes to follow me, has an idea of me :)
death of a friends relative, advice needed
So yesterday I got news that the father of a friend died. What would be the best way to help? I know that grieving takes time and helping for a day won't fix it. Apart from just being there, mostly listen if she has to say anything, any other advice? She has a s.o. and another friend who are helping her with organisational stuff.
I've never been in the position, I have not yet experienced grief myself or supported a friend through it before.
What a great workday... not 😐
So much for the homeoffice rule. In the firm I currently work in we have a software to access the computer we develop on. Well, the IT depardment managed to update that software away. Now whoever needs to access a service with that software is just sitting there, doing nothing.
quick question to the #debian 10 users here: How does one change the keyboard layout from english to german?
I didn't find the time last weekend to start the basic html/css tutorial, I was busy melting in my flat 😅 But I at least registered on neocities yesterday and did a bit on the landing page (which is only a link collection for now). Next step will be to get the page for HTML basics created. I'll inform those who were interested on the original toot personally when I have the "first step" page done :)
The whole day was somehow shitty.. I might have ruined the "relationship" with my landlord by just asking some stuff I didn't know (relationship as far as that goes with a landlord thats > 70 yo and keeps a kind of friendship contact with his renters). I got a washing mashine yesterday and the pluming stuff under the sink is broken. Wasn't when the renter before moved out aparently... And well, work day wasn't that productive, because internet didn't work until 10 (I start at 6).
Is someone here on art interested in getting into Webdesign/HTML/CSS?
I was thinking about it for a while to make something like a "quickstart" for artists to have the basic knowledge for HTML and CSS to build a simple website. Just want to know if there is interest here to make something like a tutorial for it :)
Covid Vaccine - how I react to it [in case someone is interested]
I got my first shot today!
No sideeffects so far that I don't know already from the flu shot I get every year. Arm started hurting a bit a couple of hours after, can't really raise it high without a bit of discomfort, but I have that with the flu shot as well sometimes.
A portrait I've started yesterday and finished today in stream. All done in @Krita
This is a character from a player from our D&D group that I'm dming. He's a tiefling bard. When I asked im what he looks like, the only visual trait that I got as a response was "Red like youtube or coca cola" 😅 Not sure that I got that color right, but thats how skin works. :)
It has been a while (again) that I posted art on here - sorry about that 😅 I have a few pictures that I'll post every day/every other day until I run out (so probably somewhen next week).
Here is some character art of my S.O.'s dnd character Parcival, half-elven monk. Made in Krita

It's my birthday, and I'm streaming most of the day on https://www.twitch.tv/tjea_creates
Some art, maybe some blender, maybe playing some sims 4, I don't know yet, but I definitly want to art :D
I haven't stopped drawing by the way, just .. didn't have time (and kind of forgot) to post here. The most recent one is my feeling about instagram and it's algorithm and hunting the numbers. But it's sort of a comic, and too many pages to post here into one toot. If you are comfortable with it, the link to the instagram post is behind the CW. It's kind of late here, I will see that I add the pictures here tomorrow for those who don't want to visit instagram. :)
thoughts on birthday, getting older
Anyway, thanks for coming to my toot-talk 😅
I feel old.
thoughts on birthday, getting older
Truth is, I achieved nothing of that. I've got a job that I sometimes like, but not love, more often tolerateable and sometimes even hate.
I'm not married, I don't own a house and I don't have kids.
But why is a perception of my 9 or 10 yo self putting that kind of pressure on me? I know that this kind of vision is obsolete nowadays and society has evolved. But the same society still puts pressure on me and every women-passing person. I hate it.
thoughts on birthday, getting older
It's gonna be my birthday this thursday (1st of april) and I'm turning 30...
I don't know exactly why I'm somewhat afraid (?) or anxious about turning 30, but I need to express the thoughts somewhere not verbally, but still out there.
I mean, I have a vague idea of why I have that anxiety about that age. When I was a child, I had this idea in my mind that I would have my own house, already gotten married, had kids and a job that I love while I still in my 20s.
Is someone on here who has experience with a Samsung tablet? Especially trying to find some opinions from artists, who draw on those tablets.
A friend is looking into getting a tablet, I told her the advantages I see with my iPad, but also want to give opinions on android tablet for drawing digital.
I personally use both my ipad and wacom equally (equally meaning whenever I feel like using one of them).
In case someone wants to join my artstream, I'll be streaming on twitch in a bit
I'll be working on a piece for an artchallenge a friend of mine is hosting on instagram starting tomorrow. Mostly have it finished, but something needs a bit of rework. Depending on how long I need for it, I'll maybe start something new as well.
Quick question: What are your inspirations? And I don't mean only inspiration for drawing/creating art etc, but for life - if that is the right word in that case.
For instance, my biggest inspiration for live are two tv shows: Ojamajo Doremi and Doctor Who. Don't know why, but those two shows always bring my spirits up, keep me curious for new and unexpected things, and other stuff. Do you have such inspirations as well?
