I am a lesbian artist and writer, and I am scared to try new things like this app, but here I am. Let's be friends. 😊

As promised, drawing different body shapes from the thin ones I usually draw.
TBH, this thin-centric problem probably has its roots in fine arts. I studied traditional figure drawing, oil painting, classic techniques in college. When learning human anatomy, we studied skeletons and muscles. We weren't taught to draw fat, in fact, we were taught to hide any "blemishes" when possible. It was ironically an unrealistic way to draw "realistically".
I have a tendency to draw the same type of figure over and over. Lean, thin, gangly even. I blame Egon Schiele.
Gonna challenge myself to branch out. 😐
Welcome to my Mastodon account, where I only share nakey scribbles apparently. 😋
This morning my girlfriend suggested we spend the whole day running around town and shopping, (not actual shopping cuz we poor), so that's what we did. It was greatly needed after yesterday's complete meltdown. I feel so much better. 👭😍💕
My two cuties. Cheshire is 7 years old and the sweetest boy. He knows 2 tricks. Louise is 5 months old, totally crazy, and can't decide if human touch is the worst or the best. She never sleeps. 😗

Twitter has broyght me to tears twice today, and not even over news. 1st was when I made a poll asking whether I should do a project or not, and someone voted no. Like, I only listed that as a joke, I clearly wanna do the thing, so why would someone shit on it? Rude.
2nd was when I shared how much money I raised for UNICEF, it wasn't much, but it was more than I would have been able to give on my own. Someone had to be like, "That's all?" Again. Rude. 😓
AH! I did it! Guys, I made this gif today, messing around with drawing apps and screen capture. Excited by the possibilities. :D
just wanna say thanks for all the boosts yesterday. 😚
Trying again: So I'm working on a project to catalog every lesbian film ever and draw reviews of them. It was originally on patreon, but I've collected the comics in a PDF now for sale here: https://alterici.selz.com/ Check it out, support queer creators. 😉
