soo, #introduction or #introductions i guess?
im kinda new to this tooting thing since i never used sth like it ever before.
I study computer science and am interested in #art.
Highly interested in #opensource, #privacy, #linux, #lineageos, #netzpolitik.
Also in love with #books (TheMessenger, BraveNewWorld, ReadyPlayerOne, Zero,... ),
and a wide range of #music (#metal, #folk, glitch-hop, #rock, soundtracks,...).

There's always more to learn.

Finally finished this necklace for a friend. I used 32 gauge (0.25 mm) round sterling silver wire 🐈 He liked it, yay :D

#Art #AI #Music

Imagine an AI reads past newspapers and can produce realistic-looking newspaper artists. Is that AI obsoleting newspapers?


Because something crucial is missing: The connection to the real world. We don't want to read newspapers because of the way they are written. We want to read them because they tell us about things that other people have observed in the real world.

At most, an AI can help a human journalist to write the actually relevant content in a pleasant format.

#Art #AI #Music

How does this translate to art? My point is that art is also a form of communication.

We make and consume art for two reasons:

First, yes, also because it's pleasant. Beautifully played music, a well-done painting etc., they're all worthwile in themselves. We like art because it contains ARTISANRY. This is the part that AIs can do well, and are quickly getting better at.

Second, because there is a human being at the other end. Because through art, we are communicating.

#introduction V2~! Hey Mastodon, i’m Hannah and full time comic artist and part time magical girl 🌞 I draw a lot of dreamy prismatic things and I like cartoons ✨ I also read stars and fortunes. 🌠🔮


#mastoart #art​

im super excited to be posting this piece, it's one of my favourites i've worked on probably all summer. it's a spin on the Lovers tarot card, just with #lesbian undertones. :heart_sp_les3:

if you like this piece, here it is on my redbubble (!

#pride #procreate #DigitalArt #MastoArt #FediArt #art
Two girls, one painted in all blue and one in pink, float in the foreground. The girl painted monochromatically in pink is facing upright, with a hand on her cheek, staring off to the side. She wears a glowing white shirt and white lip ring. Next to her, a monochromatically painted blue girl is upside down, staring off in the same direction. You see her profile. She has a white earring, and a white shirt on. Behind the girls is a circle with rays extending outwards across the gradient background, which goes from blue to pink. Text says "VI" on the top of the image, then "THE LOVERS" in all caps across the bottom.

sooo.... 👀 i put up the zine i made on kofi! it's based off of louise gluck's poem called "the wild iris."

if you'd like to check it out, it's completely free to download and comes in PDF format. and if you do read it, let me know what you think! comments and critiques are always welcome. 😊

'how can one be a woman & not be a feminist?'
#art/#history: i'm giving you a retinaful of snarly-soft-smarty, debbie harry, who was born #otd in 1945. although she made her debut in miami, she's more strongly identified with the big apple.
her adoptive parents were from new jersey, you see, so she grew up there & escaped to NYC in 1965. you all know her musical history & the contributions she made to pop (arguably including the first female rap as well as a shimmery risk of a disco single that proved to be a timeless crossover hit), but did you know that she's not afraid of the f-word? to wit, she wonders, 'how can one be a woman & not be a feminist?' debbie's heart isn't made of glass. it's forged from purest gold. in 2014, she was instrumental in having a new york city carriage driver's license revoked. she wrote an impassioned plea to council members imploring them to retire all carriage horses to sanctuaries. she's also an unabashed cat lady. #blondie #mastoArt #debbieHarry

Hello Mastodon! It's #introduction time, the existence of has enticed me to add yet another social platform to my life 🙂

I'm Nat, an aspiring comics creator and digital artist based in Nottingham, UK. I work full time in an IT job and I'm not great at finishing projects started in my spare time.

I have lots of experience of forcing myself to do extreme daily art challenges, at the expense of my own self-care, but I'm still working out how to make digital art and comics in a more sustainable way.

I'm interested in comics-life balance 😉

As well as a day job free of drawing, I have hypermobile EDS and a constellation of developmental neurodivergent conditions - although not dyslexia - I tested negative for that one!

Those are a big part of why trying anything except for daily 'Got to draw it, got to finish it, got to post it on social media' routines has failed for me in the past.

I had some scary burn out last year that I've only recently recovered from, Inktober put me back into some worrying patterns so I stopped after 20 days.

It did prove to me that I can finish one page comics I'm proud of, if I spread the work out properly though.

For examples of my style, here's a selection of my Doctor Who fan art from 2008 to 2012. See my deviantART or Instagram (same name) for more.

#art #mastoart #doctorwho #fanart #digitalart
A moody full colour digital portrait with black comics style outline lines and airbrushed photo realistic colours depicting harsh lighting and shadows. Early 1970s Doctor Who character Alpha Centauri is looking pensively down and to the right, towards something out of shot. The green skinned, 6 armed alien stands on a bronze-coloured diffuse background, a little like a professional photography portrait backdrop.
Comics style digital portrait of a sad 'uncultivated' Ood from Doctor Who: Planet Of The Ood. It's moodily lit in a prison cell, looking wistfully down and to the right while cradling its own hind brain in its lifted hands. There are twisty tentacles in the place of its mouth and a white twisting cord between its tentacles and the miniature brain it holds. Signed N.R.T.
A digital painting of the werewolf from the David Tennant episode 'Tooth And Claw', howling upwards in front of the full moon. Signed N.R.T.
A "super deformed" cute/happy version of Dalek Sec's casing opening at the end of Daleks In Manhattan, on a bright orange glowing background. Signed N.R.T.

Reminder that I have three short story zines. Each one with an original story and its Spanish translation.

They're pay what you can; it is very much ok to download them for free specially if you're trans as well. What matters most to me is that people read my work. You can always pay me after you read them ;3

Check em out!! And spread em around.

#introduction because i for some reason haven't done this:

I'm Katie Ampersand! I make a bunch of stuff, some of which is hopefully cool! Some of it is here, some of it is on my website (, and some of it is still in my head but I'm trying to get it out of there before the end of my lifetime

I don't make one single type of #art, but most of what I make is #drawings, #GameDevelopment, #conlangs and #worldbuiding, but I try to reach beyond those mediums

I hope the stuff I make is neat!

Hi there, bien le bonjour, guten Tag 🙂
I'm a french guy struggling to find his place in Germany. I'm here to share mostly my analog black & white photos and sometimes musics or videos.

Hi I am Anja, i am new here on - thanks for having me! 😀 May I introduce myself with some snippets of my work, starting with a

A re-#introduction: My 1st computer was a TRS-80. But it wasn't cool to be a nerd then, so I became a drummer and made a living at that for 10yrs, cruiseship #piano bars for 5. Now I do #songwriting for #art. Along the way I came back to the computer and learned to run my own servers for my website and #livestreaming and do my own #recording and to reclaim power through #selfhosting pretty much everything. Finally escaped Win for #Linux just last year ✊ #Arch btw lol
