In context to my last post, I have been struggling with art and social media for a long time. Before my physical disability hit I would come home from work and spend my free time drawing.

Tbh without getting on a soap box I was drawing for the wrong reasons. I wanted to be a cool internet artist that people liked because I wanted to be liked and validated. When the disability hit I had to stop and like any craft I got bad at drawing and I had to stop and look at what I was trying to do.

I was in over my head. I know that now. I still want to draw (when my pain and adulting allows me to) but I need to lower my ambitions and expectations a lot. I also found that the reasons I wanted to draw and post art online over ten years ago and now don't match up. In the old days I wanted to draw to start a conversation and have a narrative; and you cant find any of that anymore easily.

SM is full of soulless, lifeless, story less art. Its a war for views and a popularity contest. This doesn't mean that people who engage with adoptables, trending fan art, or commission work are sell outs. It's much more complicated than that. But for me I hate that and I am embarrassed I tried to be that for a period (and thank god I failed)

I have started to cull and curate what information and content I consume on SM so that the cacophony of the internet can stop being so intense. WF is still quiet for me (mostly because I suck at navigating SM I am an old person now) and I think that puts it into a prime position for me to curate positive SM interactions as things were back when the internet was a baby.

I'm sorry to the three followers I have here as I can't consistently churn out content but maybe I'll come in and out of hiatus or surprise you with some nice doodles.

Can someone recommend some artists to follow?

I'm more interested in OCs and general creative drabbles these days but still interested in fan art too. (well of course I am, I mostly post fan art)

You are absolutely allowed to recommend yourself.

Sketchtember 03

Just finished Gundam Build Divers. It's the first Gundam I have ever watched from begining to end and I really really enjoyed it, so I had to draw Hiroto. There were tonnes of cool characters I'd like to try drawing from that series (maybe a few gunpla if I'm brave) ... and yes the consol is there because the legs were not working for me oops

Sketchtember?

So hi dead person talking.
My hand is doing much better lately and while I have generally no time for anything, I’m wanting to do Sketchtember for the month of September.
My challenge is to spend no more than 30 mins each day to draw a character. (If that sounds too long for a sketch then you are right I am just that unskilled.)
So I am looking for some prompts to motivate me and that’s where you the internet people come in!

Fandoms include!…

Fire Emblem (all bar Judgral and three houses)
Zelda
Berserk
The vision of Escaflowne (though dont expect much I cant really do that style)
Black Clover
Magi (pre Alibaba vs Ren as i need to finish the manga)
Zubat and other batmons
Probably others that I can’t think of so just ask?

Even with no prompts I will do Rossine from Berserk (or at least try to)

Kamen Rider Fake

I have been a part of Page Productions for over a year and I am really looking forward to this webseries coming out!

The biggest challenge was filming during a pandemic, and yes we social distanced like pros!

As youtube has taken down over 10 years of content (which was unmonotised) we have decided to make it a patreon exclusive, so for $1 you can enjoy the series when it airs.

Meanwhile you can hang out and talk all things Rider or Toku in our discord server!

And lastly I ask if you are not a toku fan please reblog and share this around as indie film making is difficult at the best of times; but being Scottish indie film makers during a pandemic is even harder. We are looking at this being our last production (which is a shame because we want to make a season 2!) so we want to give it everything we got, and who knows maybe with enough interest season 2 might be a reality!

Thank you and Henshin on!

Toner Bun (Kofi) v2

Please take a look at V1 !

The only difference in this one and that one is that I used water to wake the colours a little and help blend it. I still need to practice more but I am interested to know if you have a version you like better.

Avatar was made for Kofi please check out if you have time.

Toner Bun (Kofi)

Did this a while back to advertise my Kofi, but health issues and stuff has kind of made me die a little online.

I'm goinh back to traditional drawing as digital is not as much fun for me. Will still do some digital art but thats going to be for other projects which seeing as I go at a snail's pace will probably be some time before I can share

Will share another version so I'd appreciate it if you check it out and tell me if there is one you prefer,

Keep hopping along.

Toner
