life is too short to not be your whole, fulfilled self in order to try to look cool instead
On The Topic of Online Art Communitieschanceyreblogs
It's difficult to be an artist, that much is clear. And with the evolution of social media and the fast paced world, competition and self doubt runs the show nowadays.Not to mention the algorithmic changes happening with every other social media lately, it's nearly impossibly to gather and keep an audience, this is why it's important to uplift eachother instead of relying on "followers". I know I put out this post so that I could find new artists to reblog and support, which I take very seriously and will try to the best of my ability to deliver.
However that won't solve the problem of unseen artists. One person showcasing art is good, however I think something that was wrong with the Tumblr community was the lack of support we felt for one another. Tumblr had a fantastic way to allow art to come directly from the source and be shared around and networked, Waterfall has the same unique feature that could cultivate a perfect supportive community. However we don't seem to care for one another anymore, even I am finding myself less likely to look for new artists or try to help others. Everytime a post comes around that says "artists supporting artists" I see people just dropping their own page, their own info on how to see their own art, but not looking at anyone else's pages/websites/portfolios. I've done it countless times, hell even on the post I linked above people just reblogged it, but not gone in to the notes to see anyone else's page.
Even during the renaissance, the new art motion, artists have been supporting eachother. Artists have always been connected to learn and grow from eachothe, swap ideas, mediums, foundings, etc. Social media nowadays seems to be like everyone is in a giant room, taping content on their section of the wall, but not walking two feet to the left to see anyone else's.
We need to put in the effort to support one another. I'm tired of friends and mutuals becoming insecure about their art because no one will support them.
Spread love y'all, reblog art, look at other artists, use the searchbar and look at the tags ( #art #myart #myoc #artistsonwaterfall/tumblr/instagram)

Really really really old ass drawings from when cym came out, enjoy !
Dagger and sheath
"The dagger has a pointed and doubly-curved blade, double-edged, watered steel blade that has overlaid gold at the hilt in a flower and leaf design.
The dagger hilt has been fashioned in pale greenish grey nephrite jade. The main part of the hilt consists of a central shaft with an almost square cross section with a roundel in the middle. At the pommel end, two recurved sections emerge from either side of the shaft which then continues for a short distance before ending in a bead-like terminal.
On the blade side of the roundel, the shaft widens and a stem emerges and turns backwards to join one of the recurved sections from behind, forming a knuckle guard, with the junction being carved and pierced as a drooping flower bud.
The sheath has been fashioned in green velvet with gilt mounts, gold cord and tassles."
Late night watercolor doodle. I actually like how I colored it.
U know what kinda miffs me
When other artists get genuinely upset with u bc you praise an art work of theirs that was either low effort or they didn't like all that much
Like ok I understand being frustrated with ur work and that you'd rather attention be put on work u like/put a lot of effort into
But don't be mean to someone who is being genuinely nice???
If you didn't want someone to say something nice abt ur art just don't post it?
You know you're hitting that Adult™ time in your life when you literally dream of getting your own apartment and buying your very own washer and dryer
[id: an edit of pearl and marina's official renders. here, pearl's gloves and tights are shredded in a tiger-like pattern. she wears a pink shirt with short ripped sleeves underneath her regular dress. she has two lip rings on the right side of her mouth.
marina wears a short sleeved black jacket that's zipped up slightly more. her tights are higher and cover just underneath her navel. her shorts are slightly longer.
in an editing mood, so here we are ^D^
[id: various doodles of splatoon characters and personas. there are: two agent 8s, marina, mascot inkling girl wearing a sweater, calepsy, a random inkling, and three of the same fursona. the fursona is a chinchilla with lopped bunny ears and a swirly cinnamon bun for hair. end id]
Things I want to be remembered for:
Steel knife blade with a handle of gilt chiselled iron and mother-of-pearl scales, terminating in a lion standing upon a capital and holding an heraldic scroll
Um, what does orz mean? I've searched it but I found weird results fbgnvn
It’s a person on their hands and knees! Kind of an expression of exasperation or disappointment, I guess??? It’s fallen out of use, mostly, but I like it.
o = head
r = arms and torso
z = butt and legsazulazur
