"Sky Pirates" - a bit of an experiment in letting go.

I'm calling out no one in particular but if anyone here is being paid to mention a particular #art program or has been given a free or discounted license to try it &/or mention it — it would be ethical to mention that to others. Also, I'll delete you if I find out otherwise & you have not posted a disclaimer. We allow NO advertising here. All mentions of your fave tools & work-flows using them are fine as long as you are representing YOUR personal brand, career or hobby, without bias. Yes, I realize a few of you are sponsored... Just post a #ArtDisclaimer note.
There are laws (that I present merely as a guide guide to justify this post).
Bodies in Motion has a lot of acrobatic/gymnastic poses, yeah, but a lot of other variety of action-y poses as well: https://www.bodiesinmotion.photo/
The photographic Height/Weight chart gives a lot of examples of body types at various height/weights: http://www.height-weight-chart.com/heightweight.html
And the Humanae tumblr is a fantastic resource of different faces! http://humanae.tumblr.com/random
(That link will give you a random face every time you click it, or you can go to the main blog and just scroll through at your leisure.)
Hope this helps! :)
Passively consuming the cool niche stuff you enjoy is a great way to ensure you're stuck with mainstream stuff.
Some of us struggle to stay motivated if we're not getting feedback. Tossing our stuff out into the void is anxious and scary, and it's hard to keep doing it if we don't hear anything back.
Pay, boost, link to, and thank the people who make the things you enjoy. Otherwise you might lose them to a dull normie job where they're paid money to do things and don't have time or energy to create.

Are you #ArtsyAF‽ & thank you $upporters! Show more
Thank you 🐘🎨.ART $upporters
I’ve added a $4 #ArtsyAF (http://artsy.af) tier that gives a secure email hosted on tutanota.com (web + apps on ios & android) either using @artsy.af or @masto.art AND a you.artsy.af or you.masto.art subdomain to point to whatever website or blog you host (even tumblr). If you are a student, you can have this for $1/mo (< co$t) - please use your university email domain to contact me/or patreon.
If your means to $upport the running of your home here are understandably limited, supporting others by boosting, saying hi & interacting away from 'those other' networks here on #Mastodon is 😍 more than wonderful.
Truly heartfelt thank you to the folks that help you inspire others from .ART
Marketing in Mastodon (tldr, don't!) Show more
I am going to answer this generally because I have seen several non-individual entities (companies, organizations, blogs etc) stumble on mastodon (welcome!) and be very confused about this issue of gaining traction in this new medium.
First, there are no algorithms here, or trending topics. You won't be penalized for a toot with less likes, or your account having less followers. So you don't have to compete against better promoted content just to be visible. :) Every single toot will be visible to your local instance. Followers and boosts will carry your posts across the fediverse.
Other side of the coin is that Mastodon is not a platform to mirror your existing content only, or to gain a one way audience.
Interacting with people, and being part of the ongoing dialogues (and quality/relevance of your content) is what will help you more in becoming part of one of the many voices within the community. :)
@ExilianOfficial I hope this is helpful and welcome to the fediverse. :)
Anyone else, feel free to disagree, correct, add..
Rambles about Mastodon Show more
I'm glad that my worried pessimism from yesterday about mastodon not being able to hold up long-term to the mass exodus that's arriving is slowly fading away. I was really worried how servers and things would handle it given it's such a small outfit.
Mastodon.ART has proved otherwise - it's great to see the curator doing a bang up job of keeping everything stable. The community feels so warm and thriving right now, I think we all might have found a new friendly home.
I know Twitter's a shithole but remember that it's not JUST the admins' fault.
Fleeing from the constant negativity, vicious flame-wars and harassment? Those things are just as likely to happen here, if we're not careful.
Mastodon is not popular yet, but it's growing. One day it will be. Security by obscurity is not security at all, as I'm sure you're aware.
We need to be on our best behaviour, promoting the values we want to see on our networks.
It's not someone else's problem.
