I've moved here from mastodon.social, am entirely new to the world of all things art, and am merely aspiring at the moment. Got myself an iPad Pro and Apple Pencil and have been doodling around in Procreate. I'm hoping to get inspired and learn from all your amazing pieces of artwork.

I wish games like Destiny 2 had something where you could specify how much time you want to spend playing the game per week, and then the game dynamically adjusts the milestones and missions that it shows you to match what is reasonably possible in that amount of time. and maybe also used that number (hrs/week) as a guideline for multiplayer matchmaking.
