Y'know what? 35 followers is way more than I was expecting, considering I only draw a specific character from a specific franchise.
Honestly, I'm starting to doodle Jiro so much that I feel like I should keep it all over here since my followers on Twitter are 100% only here for my drawings of Ibuki 🤔
I mean, I'll totally tweet a couple of them, but... I could see myself losing, like, twenty followers that just don't care about BNHA if I started posting every single picture lmao...
One of the things I was originally planning to do was to have posts have a note to say if they were edited or not, similar to the [deleted] thing that shows reblogs have been deleted.
But I'm kind of wondering if that's a good idea or not - on the one hand, I'm big on accountability (i.e. owning up to previous mistakes) but we also live in a world where people will go through everything you've ever said over the past 30 years, find the one thing you've said that might be slightly offensive and completely rip it out of context to destroy you as a human being so I'm wondering whether that implementation is ACTUALLY a good idea until we move as a society past that
I think the way [deleted] posts work right now works fine, but speaking as someone who edits a LOT because of spelling and grammatical errors (hello, dyslexia), I'm not sure an edit tag would be very useful. I feel like most people out there really only use editing for that sort of thing as well, and instead reblog their own post if they want to add onto, clarify, or change the original thought.
It's honestly really funny to me that hundreds if not thousands of websites have figured out how to implement JPG conversion to reduce a picture's file size without absolutely tanking the quality, but Twitter's still out here making people's small resolution artwork look crunchy.
Another thought to go with this: my artwork is usually no bigger than 2 MB, and in terms of artwork on the internet nowadays (considering there are people that draw at stupidly large resolutions of like, 6000x4000), that's very small... and yet Twitter's still out here like "doesn't matter, shrink it down". It's a feral little website doing things its own way.
Breaking news: Twitter sucks the life out of all artwork by running it through the image equivalent of a meat grinder. More at eleven.
(Also she's in a Metric tee because I wanted it, ok)
I finished reading BNHA recently and I have a new favorite, because I guess I have a thing for lady musicians 💦💦💦
Also sorry for the six million tags, I wanna make sure I hit all the right ones.
Every £3 donation the Ko-Fi gets, I've been going out to my local nursery and buying acorns. They're pretty expensive (it takes up most of the donation to get one that's garunteed-ish to grow), but the local council gave me approval to plant them in the local recreation ground once the works there are done. Y'all have funded eight oak trees so far.
I feel like it's important to note that I've been mentally referring to my fursona as "Panko" this entire time... because I'm Pan. And she's a little me.
This is also important because my brother got me a pink stuffed dragon as a get well soon gift (I had a nasty fall earlier that's made me kinda unable to walk for now), and he said "It kind of looks like your fursona, right?"
So I've decided her name is Panko for that very reason. 😚
I wanted to draw something really detailed, so I did, and now my hand hates me. But joke's on my hand, because now I can sleep!!!
(Also, this was entirely a self-indulgent excuse to draw Ibuki with my own, real-life Stratocaster. Don't judge.)
I... I rambled to my friends about how cool electric guitars are and was met with radio silence, and now I'm all embarrassed...
But like, I can't help it!! Because my dad was a guitarist, I grew up around guitars all my life, I even own one myself... I'm just naturally inclined to look at one and go "NEAT" -
They're cool!! They have so many different shapes because as long as they're not hollow, the shapes have zero effect on the sound!! You can have an electric guitar that has a body the size of a soda can if you wanted because it's entirely based on the guitar's pickups, the length of the neck, and the settings on the amp you're using!! If you wanted, you can have a guitar that's shaped like a photorealistic cat as long as there's enough room for its electronics!! You could make a guitar out of a car if you want!!! They have guitars that are literally just floating pickguards attached to the neck out there!! Wanna make a SNES into a guitar?? Do it, sky's the limit, you can do whatever you want!!
And that's neat!!!!
Found a fun little hack for the upcoming colour schemes that mean transparent images will automatically translate to whatever the user's current background colour is. That means that any fancy dashboard art (i.e. Saitama dancing on your dash) will always work, regardless of whether I decide to give you all a migraine one day.
So you're saying I should stop drawing art with transparent backgrounds and creepy things drawn in white because no one can see it on WF's current color scheme, then?
- Oh, wait, that said blog title, not blog url. Yeah, no, that's still "why" with a bunch of eldritch runes because I love it too much to change it.
It used to be sparkles, and Waterfall decided it wouldn't have any of that, so now I'm keeping it forever as a memento.
Concept: I design Thell a fursona based entirely on what I've gleaned about him via watching him build this website from the ground up.
#pantxt #this idea brought to you by my brain spouting "staff-assigned fursona" while i'm mid-doodling #i guess this also depends on if he has a secret fursona already that he's hiding from the masses4 notes
Me, losing my mind: fire rabbit???? fiRE RABBIT??!!?! FIRE RABBIT!!!!!!!!
Not just fire rabbit
If it ends up being Fire/Fighting, I swear I will package it up neatly with a nice little bow and huck it out the nearest window.
