#introductions Hello 👋 I'm Nathaniel or "Nate" (he/him).
Life long #Apple enthusiast/hipster (I liked them before they were a juggernaut).
Long time Twitter user increasingly nervous about the direction of that platform.
Wow, almost 2 full days of work on this #procreate painting?!
Can’t really speculate on when I’ll finish it yet, but it’s taking shape… Fortunately progress is accelerating as I get practice with the brushes, style, and subject matter.
No evidence was found that #FaceApp is bulk uploading photos without permission but still see some FUD today…
Funny because most people give Facebook/IG nearly unfettered access to their data & photos without blinking an eye, this is not much different. https://techcrunch.com/2019/07/16/ai-photo-editor-faceapp-goes-viral-again-on-ios-raises-questions-about-photo-library-access-and-clo/

I’m still a bit slow at painting but I made good progress on my latest digital painting tonight. It’s definitely my most ambitious Procreate project yet so it may be awhile still before I’m ready to show it... I don’t want to spoil the finished product with unfinished teasers, as tempting as that is.
I’m really loving my iPad Pro, it’s my best tech purchase in a long time. I’m glad it’s helped get me back into making art for fun (as intended).
