Hello, setting up shop over here on icosahedron.website since I feel like it's probably time to move to someplace a little more uh home feeling than the larger instances. Refollow if you like; or don't!
Think I will shift off to a smaller instance sometime soon since mastodon.social is uh overloaded.
Friendly reminder: this isn't Twitter.

You've left the swirling fire vortex of rage birdsite created to keep investors and advertisers happy. Live free! Live well 👍
was gonna try to do stuff tonight but it appears life has had other ideas
i am assuming mastodon.social got another influx of new users because it is powerfully slow tonight.
There, added and integrated facial expressions to all the characters.
Just a few pixels of motion adds so much to storytelling, even as goofy and simplistic as it is...
pretty happy about how stuff is coming together on the goofy puzzle game project thing.
i suppose i should probably write one of those introduction blurbs for this account since i'm using it more again. maybe tomorrow, kind of out of gas here tonight...
#1 most effective way to notice things wrong with your drawing:
Post them for other people to see, you'll notice in like two seconds.
approximating curves with pixels is kind of tricky; to make something look 'smooth' you have more limited options for curvature, which tends to make roundedness harder to make clean than just having long lines that curve over a range
migraines Show more
migraine i was expecting to have hit yesterday, when temperatures rose back up from 'bearable' to 'death by summer', finally landed today.
i expected it so i took pre-emptive medication for it and i'm not in a lot of pain here today, but i have the mental focus of a fish in addition to very high sensitivity to light and sound and light dizziness.
better than being in a world of pain on top of all that, i suppose
the new dwtd release that came out today is really doing it for us:
pet peeve: watching a stream of a game with a unique art style and seeing a stream of 'wow, must've done drugs' comments in chat
like, anything creative outside of the normal bounds of Videogame Art Styles is viewed that way and it's so disappointing
most corporate social media has trained me to explicitly _not_ talk about/to my friends in semipublic spaces much because I don't want to send unsolicited garbage their way.
one of the things about mastodon is it's a lot safer here... but I still have the urge to keep an eye on potential 'what if people go digging through my history' that is just such a tiring form of anxiety.
