gonna try out inkblot.art since they're opening invites for closed beta this weekend

might be interesting

zylphide

got my invite today, used it for a couple of hours, here's my ~review~:

general info:

  • visually, it's a mix of dA/instagram/tumblr (you have "latest" and "explore" pages like dA, posts themselves look instagram-esque, your personal page is like a blend of tumblr and instagram)
  • you can like, reblog, and comment on posts and use hashtags for discoverability
  • meant for ages 16+
  • you can upload nsfw stuff but Bad Shit (hateful art, sexual crimes, etc) is prohibited

pros:

  • reblogs only show up on your timeline/dashboard and don't clog up your gallery
  • there's a bit of customization for your page, you can upload a banner pic and change the color if your buttons/background/text color (there's also widgets but right now those are for pro members only while they debug it)
  • there's a dedicated comics upload section
  • can mark your account as mature (for 18+ ppl only)
  • works on mobile (no app tho yet)

cons:

  • user engagement feels a little low (people tend to like but not reblog posts), might be because user count is still low while they're in closed beta
  • still some bugs to iron out with the UI
  • some parts of the site are confusing and not explained well (there's a way to mark your stuff as having a cw but i don't know how to do it, i only see the nsfw/gore toggles; people not knowing you can add hashtags, etc.)

if you wanna try out this site for yourself, they open their signup list on the 3rd weekend of every month (friday-sat US time). signup slots are unlimited but they send invites in batches of 100 spaced out every 2 days to make sure servers aren't super strained.

@mier commented on this post:
oh nice i still havent got mine but im waiting for it

definitely check your promotions tab if you use gmail, mine landed there instead of the normal inbox (probably because of the word "invitation" ) so i didn't see if for a while rip

an almost fullbody portrait (head down to the knees) of an oc, cecil. they are looking off to the right with their head facing slightly to the left. they have green eyes with black scelera and long, slightly wavy brown hair. their body si cybernetically enhanced with lots of circuit markings on their skin and black patches around their neck, abdomen, and underarms. they're wearing a black and gold oni-style mask that covers up most of their face, except for their eyes. they're holding two swords, although only one of them is colored in. the background of the image is a drab olive gray, but there is a red sun or halo behind their head.

2021 is cursed, both my grandpas died this year and one of the outdoor strays i was feeding disappeared :(


transparent image of a t-shirt design featuring 3 hexagons next to each other. one hexagon to the far left is yellow colored and has a red R framed by 2 blue roses, with the words

made a design for a t-shirt contest for my department

ngl i hope i lose because
1. the prize is just a free tshirt
2. the people who are voting on this are cliquey and don't deserve it
3. i want to use this for my lab's tshirts instead

marpleblarp

zylphide

 fullbody reference drawing of a reptilian humanoid with light blue skin, dark teal scales, and long, wavy, black hair with cyan highlights. they are facing three-fourths to the left, with their right arm bent upwards with their fingers in a clawed grasp. they have a smug expression with a toothed smile on their face. the left half of their mane is braided, but the right half of their mane is flowing free they have two large horns growing next to their brows, both horns curve backwards and are segmented with spikes coming out of each segment. their legs from the lower thigh down and their tail from the base onward are cybernetic and skeletal. the dark teal scales on their arms and legs have spikes coming out of each segment. they have white tattoos over the scales on their torso and thighs.

another god from my homegrown worldbuilding project, their aspect is life/death and disease

maroon monochrome painting of a figure standing in the rain. they're standing to the left of the frame facing three-fourths to the right, but they're looking off to the right. a concerned and slightly alarmed expression is on their face. the figure is holding an umbrella, but their long hair has still been wetted by the rain. they're wearing a thick choker around their neck, a single sleeve around their left arm and shoulder, and a half-robe around the right side of their body. a sheer sparky wrap hangs offtheir right shoulder and wraps around their left arm.
