Just a tiny test using black colored paper I recently got, with gel pens and pencils, with also gold. Just practicing with pencils a bit.

it is good to try new things.

IIt's important to note that Masto (and the fediverse) is not an 'alternative Twitter'. It's an entirely different platform that has its own unique culture. We don't chase likes or follows or popularity, we don't present as brands or 'personalities'. We care about each others' personal lives and wholesome engagement on a more individual level.

If you're going to use a Masto to Twitter crossposter, please keep this in mind, and ideally, cross post from here to there, and not there to here.

artist problems - personal 

I also seem to have an issue with my breaks tonight.

I managed to stop working on the canvas, but now doing mini drawings with my colored pencils.

I am tired, I can tell I am tired but keeping going.

also the original is definitely more magenta than red.

This painting hides a secret, which is the reason for some of the technical and choices. Can you guess?

Since there has been a ton more people coming over from Twitter I thought I should reintroduce myself. I'm a ceramics artist from southern California, emphasizing astronauts, aliens and dinosaurs (because I'm just that way I guess). I spend my time working on this artwork, and spending time with my partner, two cats, and an incorrigible pug! #introduction #reintroduction

I don't know how I feel about this. I haven't painted anything realistic in a decade, and never this tiny, but it was fun?

Did you see the news that all of the #JWST instruments are aligned now?

Check out this comparison of one of the newly released calibration images from the MIRI instrument compared to images taken of the same region of space by the WISE and Spitzer space telescopes! Look at that resolution! So many newly resolved stars and structures! 🤩

I can't wait for all the new discoveries we'll make with JWST! #Science data starts in only a couple months!

MyPaint is a Free and Open Source art software that focuses on distraction-free digital painting, with lots of keyboard shortcuts and a minimalist expanding canvas. It's great for sketching, but I've also seen some truly beautiful professional works done with it!

It's available for Linux, Windows, and Mac OS X :D

Check it out, and please share your #MyPaintArt creations!

sometimes I forget troubleshooting and buying equipment is part of work too. (then I try to figure out why I got no work done. - I did... it just feels like I didn't because there are no tangible results)

⇒ various forms of electro-funk and bass #music

⇒ ambiental drone, noise and sonic experiments

its been a bit difficult to focus on work this week between influx to mastodon and some real life hiccups. so instead of trying to keep working on existing projects taking a couple of days off to switch gears and try new things.

one very early and one proof of concept.
