art is hard and thats why you gotta put time and effort into developing it

people who dont do art ask me how im so good (which is. subjective bc my work is deeply flawed) and i tell them six and a half years of practice

people who dont do art say im talented and like?? thank you for the compliment but saying its talent implies i could always do what i can now.

art is a skill and like all other skills you gotta put time and effort into improving if you wanna get better

theres nothing wrong with tracing animals and things to get your footing n how things work and how lines connect. tracing is only an issue when you trace artists work and try to redistribute it as your own. a way to incorporate tracing and making it your Own thing is to trace vague lines around like...an anatomy image from the 1800s, for example? and then just, again, go ham with colors. its kind of just like coloring in but you also have the additional benefit of having done the lines--

have you ever noticed that someone post a screenshot of text without providing an image description, preventing you from being able to read it? or maybe they posted a huge amount of text that just can't possibly be described with the image description feature?

simply tag @OCRbot in a direct reply to the image. it will download the image and scan it using tesseract OCR to output the text contained in the image!

because OCRbot runs on fedi.lynnesbian.space, it has a character limit of 65535, so even the longest images should work OK!

check the reply to this image to see it parsing the attached screenshot!

hey, adobe color CC? why did you pick the literal worst color scheme possible from this image? this is a very colorful image but you basically picked 2 colors when you're supposed to pick 5. adobe, how do you mess up this bad

so i have a gif avatar now, but when i hover over it, my character looks like they have a bunch of tails instead of just one. why mastodon

honestly, i wish most websites had something similar to DA stamps because filling my profile with forest aesthetic and cat stamps is actually really fun

so i usually carry some of my school stuff in a lunch box that has a strap on it (my school has a rule against backpacks and it's technically not a backpack even though i use it as one so they can't get me in trouble for it)

im gonna try using a smaller bag bc carrying around a big lunch box sucks tbh. im just hoping nobody gives me crap for it. most teachers dont enforce the rule bc they just dont care but a few do. i think its too small to technically be a backpack but im worried anyway

some people say that you cant feed birds during winter but i just saw the fluffiest woodpecker i have ever seen at my bird feeder today

it was basically just an orb of feathers with a head and wings and i loved it

haunted.pizza redirects to vote.org and i am very confused
