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 :)

Does someone have a tip on how to be able to draw digital just as good as traditional?
I may have mentioned it before, but somehow I struggle a lot when trying to draw something digital. I've got and iPad, so it's not the "where-to-look" difference exactly. The strokes just don't translate the same, even though the pen is pretty much similar.
Is it just patience? Keep on trying? Are there exercises to get used to the slight difference?
I haven't posted here in a while, but I've got a drawing project in mind that keeps me motivated during work and when doing these practice sketches.
It's marisha ray from critical role and.., not to boast, but I think I improved from the very first sketch at the top to the portrait sketches at the bottom. I won't be posting these practice sketches anywhere else for now.

Art Problems Show more
I mean, I probably know my problem.
For some reason when creating digital, I always have the "This has to go faster than that" thought in the back of my head. While traditionally... it just flows on its own and I take the time I need for it.
If someone reads this, is this just me or do you have that being-rushed-feeling with digital as well?

These past few days (or weeks) I always tried to draw on the ipad - it is convinient, I have every colour available, and no paper to throw away if it doesn't turn out the way I wanted.
But for some reason, whenever I draw digitally, it never looks the way I want it - which makes me frustrated after a short while.
Today I picked up a pencil and sketched a portrait on a scrap of paper - why is it so much easier to sketch with on a piece of paper...?
My first D&D Session as the DM (and my first ever D&D Session) Show more
It went surprisingly well! :D
I think everyone had fun, which is the main thing. :) And I got a few compliments and thanks in the end.
I was nervous as hell at the beginning, but I guess it is like that if it's something new :D
One of my art goals this year is to improve on values and being more bold with colours. Another is to be able to create nearly realistic digital paintings, but that one is for the future 😀
Today I took some time to do a photostudy of this photo https://unsplash.com/photos/T5LmLI8nmBQ with some unusual colors. I stopped at this point, since I was nearing the frustration mark - good place to stop I figured :) I’ll try to do one or two more of these in the upcomming week

Still no job, and freelancing has pretty much dried up completely.
If you've got a couple bucks spare I could use the help. :/
(And thank you. I hate to ask *again*, and I can't wait until I'm the one able to *send* money to folks in need. #transcrowdfund )
Today is my Masto-birthday :D
Because my first day on this plattform has been so amazing, with people being nice and everything, I wrote down when I registered on here last year. And well, it is no a whole year that I've joined mastodon.art :)
Thank you for being such a nice place, even though I'm not as active these past few weeks. :)
I wanted to post a few photos for a while now. These photos have been taken in april last year.
I love that time of year, when it is about to get warm, but it's still also cold. You admire the sunshine, because it warms you up. The birds are starting to sing, and it just creates this warm calmness all over.
I'll try to post other photos I've taking since last year during the next week. I'll also post these on my pixelfed account first @julloyart #photography #nature #spring
