@sylvia_ritter These are astounding. If the praying hands waterfall is ever available as desktop wallpaper, I'd love to know!

RT @FRENDEN The best advice I’ve gotten on character design was to start with silhouettes and use a brush bigger than you feel comfortable with. It helps keep you loose, doesn’t allow you to obsess over small details, and ensures your silhouettes read at distance.

My process boils down to:

1. A sheet of silhouettes.
2. A value painting of the best one.
3. A color layer over the value.

@Bonesnail This is so...twisted, yet...straightforward (and so, not horrific). I like it. :D

@rienlen adulting is just THE WORST sometimes. (It's extra bad if you have an inner Budget Dragon like I do.)

RT @AesAthena @mrSRH Ever considered online ateliers, like Oatley Academy or Schoolism? oatleyacademy.com/mb2-beta/
schoolism.com/
Or Taught By a Pro?
taughtbyapro.com/
Or Tales of Amalthea creature design?
imaginationinternationalinc.co

These are niche (because I like animation/storytelling/creature design) but they're taught by industry pros.

My head is down (offline) trying to get this new Christmas cat story done (hopefully) before Thanksgiving...It's turning out a lot longer than I expected.

Also stress. And money stress. (I know y'all know what THAT'S like.) OTOH, despite the stress, I'm able to buckle down and write 100 minutes a day, using those pomodoro sprints. It's good to know I have that superpower Just gotta up my consecutive days.

I'm doodling, but by the time evening rolls around the last thing I want to do is scan stuff.

Also there's a lady in my congregation whose husband has some taxidermied gazelles or antelopes MUSSSST GET MY HANDS ON THEEEM to draw my gazelle dragons better.

THE END 😁

When I joined masto, I gravitated towards following creative peeps and noticed a thing that's pretty common to all of us: we feel guilty for promoting places that people can buy our work or otherwise support us financially. So I started the #CreativeToots hashtag for that very reason. Got an Etsy page? Online store? Patreon? Selling a piece of art? Throw that tag on it. Do it with unfettered abandon. Everyone else: Look at that tag for artists to support. Buy their stuff. Help them create. <3
