I think about our colorist when I work. Not just, "maybe this should be colored this way or that", but that he has a family and needs these pages, needs to make a living too.
And "nice" these days is VASTLY underrated. I'm pretty dang thrilled to find anything that's pretty nice in 2017.
Something I like about Mastodon so far: people seem to be willing to be a bit more goofy and a bit more earnest over here. IT'S NICE.

I've always been surprised at how much information has to go into a drawing. Mundane stuff. It's not just, "Hey, draw a pistol," for instance. It's, "Draw a pistol thta someone from the 70's would have." With more detailed information, you get a more realized image.
We talk a lot about uniqueness. Good art. But I think when we talk about good art, we're talking about fully realized things. Generic characters lack specificity. Unique pieces are thought through.
Did some poking around in the @usercount timeline. If I'm understanding this correctly, it looks like at the beginning of the month, there were 800-1000 signups at mastodon.social per week. But over this last week, there have been over 13,000 new signups.
Very curious to see where those numbers go over the next few weeks!
+32 in the last hour
+848 in the last day
+13,423 in the last week
Hey Mastodonians, I am doing a writing advice thread over on Twitter. https://twitter.com/skrishna/status/931151791290503168
Totally cool with Apple replacing the audio jack until I can't find that little dongle thingy or the headphones that work with the new jack and no local phone stores have the little dongle thingy in stock because, one store owner tells me while shrugging, "Apple."
Was chatting with @azalben (whom y'all should follow), and realized that all this joint needs to become A Thing is for us to post our random bullshit over here a few times a day. Really, that's it! #ChangeTheWorld #GoAheadAndPostYourRandomBullshitOverHereAFewTimesADayWhyNotRight
