SO, first toot! Figured I'd sign up and see what this platform is all about. I'm not so great at the twitters and bookfaces and all this digital screaming into the void, but I'mma give it a shot anyhow.
Also, here's an experimental #painting I'm currently working on, not a mastodon but close enough, not finished but I think you can see what it is . Feedback always welcome ^_^
@MJBlacke Oh, that's really nice :)
Welcome to :)
here's a brief introduction if you need it: https://gist.github.com/joyeusenoelle/74f6e6c0f349651349a0df9ae4582969
And I'll definitely give that page a read, looks helpful. Thanks again! 😁 👍
@MJBlacke ooohh this painting is really good
@MJBlacke That's lovely. Welcome to Mastodon. :)
@MJBlacke Welcome to the Land of Toots! That is an A+ elephant :D
@MJBlacke Welcome and I love the piece!
@robert Thanks so much! 🤗
@MJBlacke I like it!
@bstacey Ooh, thanks for the tip! 😀
@bstacey Thanks! 💖
@MJBlacke Bienvenue ! (yes, I'm welcoming you in French !(is "welcoming" correct, used that way ? Not sure))
@dada Merci beaucoup!
Oui, c'est correct!
...but I'm not going to risk trying much more French than that, I'm still learning 😅
@MJBlacke Keep learning ! Well, you could turn into a french 😅
@dada LOL! love that pic!
Learning more is always the goal! I've always loved French as a language, but I've got a long way to go. I suppose I'll have to follow you so I can practice my reading 😉
@MJBlacke There's plenty of french down here. You'll get as french as you want ! Btw, why are you learning french ? Is it because you live in Canada or something ? :p
People learning french are basically crazy : this is not really useful and we are a pain in the ass for native English speaking guys :D
And, if I may, we, french, do not speak and write our own language correctly. No worries is you do mistakes :)
@dada No specific reason, I just like learning.
I would like to head over to Europe one day (I'm in Australia, so it'd be a big, expensive trip, and it's just a dream for now) and spend several months going around historical and artistic sites as I'm a bit of an art/history/architecture nerd. Not just France, but I figure I have to start somewhere :D
But for now I'm a broke artist, so it's just learning for fun, even if the grammar gives me a headache :p
@MJBlacke I have no art expertise whatsoever so here's my very non-technical feedback: wow, awesome!
@jkb Aw, thanks so much!
(non-technical (nice) feedback is always great, it feeds my hungry, hungry ego 😜)
@MJBlacke the void says hello, there!
@eloisa Hello to you too, void! 😘
It seems a very nice void, so far. Absolutely the friendliest void I've ever screamed at 😁
@MJBlacke the void giggles and blushes. Aww, you! Thanks!
We expect plenty of toots like this one 😋
@zorglubu Oh bollocks 😅 I've stitched myself up a bit here, haven't I?
I'd best rush back to the drawing board, seems I have work to do 🖌 🤔
@Satsuma Will do, thanks so much!
@MJBlacke Welcome! I only arrived today myself. That painting is amazing, I'm looking forward to seeing more of your work.
@MJBlacke Wow, that is beautiful MJ!
