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
I create line art for colouring, digital mandalas, photography, writing, crochet and jewelry. Places you can find/support me:
Progress! Now I need to repeat those two corner mandala segments on the other side. They take about 1.5 hours each. #MastoArt
Another Skyrim screenie. I'm playing with a mod that puts jewelry in the game that lets you summon animals. The first item I found was a ring that summons a saber cat. So now I have a pet saber cat wandering around with me. ^.^ (The animal stays active as long as the item is worn.) I'll take some screenshots of me and my giant fuzzball tomorrow. :)

I made Alwyn, the MC from my Warden novella, in the game. XD
his pack contains 15 decorative hand-drawn mandalas to download, print, and colour, for the low low price of $5 (though you can 'tip' extra, too <3 ).
It includes my two most recent hand-drawn mandalas that I've had requests to have as colouring pages!
(If you're one of my Patreon supporters at the $4.50 tier, I'll be making a post shortly that has this pack included :) https://www.patreon.com/welshpixie )
@WelshPixie I totally understand what you're saying. I've been through that.
Everyone just sees the final product. They should spend a day with an artist to understand the process of creating art. Artists do not sit all day and chill as most people believe. On the contrary. We have to work sometimes more hours than people who do regular jobs. I think societies, after all these centuries, are still not educated to understand that.
Phew. Scanning all those hand-drawn mandalas, tidying them up, making them into PDFs, creating sample images from them, and uploading them for sale and then creating the social media posts took three hours.
This is the behind-the-scenes work you don't see creatives talking about, but I assure you it's tedious and draining and bleh, and yet has to be done.
This* pack. Oops.
