Pinned toot

Head's-up -- I intend to use this Mastodon account for everything: posting art, talking about my life, socializing, and so on.

If you're not here for that and just wanna see my art, you can just catch me on the timeline or in the MastoArt tag! Have a good day. 🌱

Sometimes I can't hear the difference between a FLAC file and a 320kbps MP3 file, and sometimes I can INTENSELY hear it, lmao*

*I THINK I can hear it, and that's important enough to me

work anxiety 

I had to take 16 hours of sick time from work this week, and every muscle in me is wound up for impact. Surely THIS is the time they retaliate and fire me for taking sick time, lmao.

On the flipside of my rant, I'm debating wiping this little laptop and putting Linux Mint on it, so I'm looking up Glimpse and Krita, lmao.

Hey yall!
Guess what! I started a patreon page!

Over the next few months, I'm going to be working on a 2D hand animated short to submit to festivals. I will be posting updates on how that's going weekly, along with my other creations!

As a patron you'd see unique illustrations, sketches, & content and you also get goodies too! If you want to support a black artist and join me for an inside look on my art journey, come check it out! 🖤

And more importantly, disabled people don't have to run across a seemingly decontextualized (but not really, slurs, like, SUMMON shitty context upon utterance) slur in the wild!! Amazing!!

It's amazing the number of people who mock the Glimpse fork project because of "snowflakeism". Like, if the name being a slur wasn't an issue, I'd like to see any of these people try to tell a higher-up at their workplace that they want to adopt the program for organization use with the name as-is.

That friction right there? That's enough reason to want to figure out an alternative.

It's also uplifting—it's nice that my personal, original art will be shared like this here. Usually, it's fanart that makes the rounds. Thanks, everybody. 🌱

Clip Studio Paint thing I only figured out yesterday: cropping by editing canvas size in the Edit menu has much better controls, like handles, than just using the rectangular lasso tool and hoping I get it right the first time, lmao

Okay, I don't hate it, but I AM curious why this self-portrait is doing these sort of numbers, shsdiuf

if you've spent any length of time on the fediverse and value anti-racism, community building, decoloniality, challenging oppressive cultural norms, and generally making spaces safe for vulnerable folks, then you've benefited from the work that @CaribenxMarciaX has done here

if you can afford a few quid each month, i highly recommend subscribing to show your appreciation and help them continue their work (and you get top content and updates straight into your mailbox!):

Aaron Frazer's falsetto soul music is queer. (I have no idea if he's queer, his music simply has the Vibes.)

Whenever any of those phenomenal Japanese food illustrators pass through my TL, I have this lifetime-in-a-moment fantasy of a universe where I ALSO draw food that nicely and get colors and textures so good that other people salivate when they see it.

The secret's out! 🙊Sway, Chester Till, Sybil, Catepillation, and more in the December 2020 issue of Underbrush.

I'm Erine F/22, doing some digital art when I can!
Working on some illustration and comic projects, but still figuring things out. I mostly do character stuff but I do landscapes and some environments from time to time.

I have no idea what to expect here but I hope it's nice 🤷‍♀️

So, in the year of our Lord 2020, I got a Blu-ray player because the landscape of streaming (and associated nonavailability and also instability) really drove home the need for me to have more physical media in my life. I'm slowly collecting movies.

I don't have the stamina for long-term work like an ongoing comic right now, but I'm toying with the idea of dedicating a month to a movie and doing studies and fanart just based off of that movie each month.
