Pinned toot

Hello, my name is Philipp and I'm a concept artist & illustrator.

I love science fiction, open source, Linux, and VR. I paint in , model/animate/render in , and design in VR with . My non-client work is by-sa. Lefty, vegan, life drawing lover. Occasionally nsfw art.

Homepage: mooncube.space/.

Hit me up if you have questions or requests! ❤️

For the longest time I found it difficult to enjoy painting (and often even drawing), it was always just a necessary grind to get better. But now that I’ve improved a bit it’s starting to grow on me! Which is a weird feeling when something that is “supposed” to be work/practice suddenly starts being fun, haha.

Have you had a similar experience with any part of your craft?

Through the Warrior Painters group I’m discovering so many amazing artists – right now I’m in love with the colours in Anthony Val’s art, so intense and friendly. Here’s some more of his work: anthonymval28.wixsite.com/port

Good day, MastoArtians! :D

It's emojo time! :bob_ross: :louis_toots_too: :make_like_edmonia:

We'd like to add a few more custom emojos to our roster, and give you lovely creative people an opportunity to design your own and submit them ^.^

Criteria: 32x32px transparent PNG. It would be extra nice if they're creativity-themed, but that's not essential. Make them fun! :D

@Curator I want to share my old work! The little leaves are cute and easy to draw.
But I now use free brushes :P

Hello there I'm mopani, nice to meet you. I do traditional art since a couple of years and started digital art about two years ago. I'm an instagram refugee because I coulnd't handle the sh*t show over there anymore. I hope to find a new home for my art over here.

If you want to support me you can buy me a coffee or become my patron. I will post new art first on patreon.

Somebody tell me more about , I’m considering signing up to the .social one. So far I’ve mainly seen photos there, is there an art community to speak of? How much gets posted there/how fast is it? What’s the vibe like, is it similar to here? Any admin drama you know about?

Thanks fam. 🙏

(btw @ me if you post art and I don’t follow you yet, I need to seeeeeee - follow recommendations welcome as well)

Every time, only on Masto. 😊

Me: “Wow, that’s a really cool piece of art, let’s go check out their profile!”

Their profile: “✔️ You follow each other” 🥰

Some animalistic vibes between all the landscapes. Again playing with contrast of saturation, it’s very satisfying to pull back most of a painting and then create small islands of really intense colour. Painted in .

What’s your favourite art book? I love the exhibition catalogue of the Star Wars Identities show, it has so many fascinating old sketches and designs from the original trilogy. This is what Yoda could have looked like!

I’ve been thinking about it for some time, but now with so much time working from home I finally did it: Got myself a dual monitor arm and an ergonomic chair. Not cheap, but I think it’s a good investment for future you, if you have the means.

Or just use reams of paper to improve your setup like this! ⬇️ 😆 🔥

I find this illustration by @Gynux so adorable, and there's many more like this:

Hi everyone, it's August.
I am from Taiwan and I am studying English and looking for a job (commission?)
I used to stay in Art Alley, but the management here is more active so it is very attractive.
I often draw anime and pixel!

If my English is strange, please teach me! I still mostly use Google Translate.

Your worth is not tied to your productivity. Create because your art deserves to exist, not because the rat race of social media tells you you’re useless if you don’t produce “content” fast enough. Otherwise we’re just unpaid workers for big tech’s profits.

I'm so grateful that the Fediverse feels very different in that regard. 💗

I painted these two a while ago, but I still like their colours a lot. The green is really intense and contrasts well against the less saturated backdrop. Saturation contrast is a great way of leading the eye. Painted in
