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 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

Hi all! I'm moving to @welshpixie :) *scampers off through the bushes*

Progress! Now I need to repeat those two corner mandala segments on the other side. They take about 1.5 hours each.

Sex Education on Netflix. Do it. Do it now.

My first dragon fight on this character in Skyrim. See that one pic where the kitty comes into view? Dragon still had over half health. Kitty pwned it.

Still playing around with Delaunay Triangulations and Voronoi Tessellations :D

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. :)

the next part of Warden!

It's a m/m gay romance in a fantasy setting. Light-hearted, safe for work.

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 :) patreon.com/welshpixie )

Took me 35 minutes to do the shading on that mandala bit in the left corner...

@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.
