I'm a lil' camera-shy and don't post many selfies on here yet, but here's a middle-ground

also, I should make a sketchbook zine. A lot of these are actually pretty good. I've been meaning to make one for years.
One of my pals made a fun suggestion - which was to let him and my other friends (also artists) curate my sketchbook zines. I might take him up on that offer when we're all a lil' less busy.

more free prompts for anyone (born outta re-named scanned sketchbook files)

It's never too late for :D

In an establishing shot, if your focal location is strongly to one side, it can read as "arriving" or "departing", depending on whether the reader/viewer looks across the surroundings first, or looks from the focal point to the surroundings.

In a comic, this usually depends on the reading direction.

Nearly finished with the kickstarter! Just need to design an A3 poster as a reward. To help me, I've cherry picked some of my scanned sketchbook drawings, and re-named them. I figured their file names could be a fun prompt-list, so go wild.

This one's gonna sound real dumb, but it's something that often doesn't occur to people.

You can just lay a ruler on your tablet and use that to draw a straight line.

Same thing with French curves and circle guides. 👍

Language is fun.

English: I am thirsty

Fr/Sp: I have thirst

Gaelic (h/t @kiki_d): Thirst is on me

Hindi: To me, thirst is coming

Hm, with everything going on, it's been hard to put up art. I remember having fun doing really non-committal pieces for goblin week - so I may do something similar, just to de-stress whilst juggling family stuff/sluggishly drafting my kickstarter

Hello my lovely :mastoart:•ARTists!

Yesterday I changed our sign-up option to the new "request registration" feature. This allows new users to fill out a form to request an account here, rather than relying solely on invites from current members.

This is an experiment! We'll see how it goes. I'm sure 99% of the new users we get this way will be great, but just in case, please keep an eye out for spammy accounts! Report any you see and your excellent mod team will deal with them. :bear_hugs:

19 The Sun for . This one was nice. Different from the other ones I feel, much more clear and crisp, but that's what the sun does, right?

Picture shows a bright painting of a big glowing sun above a sharply lit meadow. Two figures stand on the light, outlined in by the harsh light. The sun is a bit 2 dimensional, the rest rather naturalistic.
