    There is something so freeing about shaving all your hair off (ok, not all, there is a tiny amount left lol).

    Probably not the most flattering for me, but it feels like such a confidence power move. Hat season :slight_smile:

    Ugh. I got targeted by one of those AI scams recently. Basically they message artists asking for specific samples, which they use as a base to feed into AI programs and then layer prompts onto it.

    It was pretty obvious from the message that they were just looking to steal, so I blocked them and didn't respond. Still, I'm almost flattered that someone thought my work was good enough to be worth stealing. I do hate what those generators have done to the industry though and the ways people try to trick others.

    Canterpiece.....I haven't followed you as well as I would like to have...so I don't remember right now what kind of an artist you are...mea culpa! I'm a musician, so a "Musical Artist" I like to think. If you are a "Visual Artist", would you consider sharing a piece of your work by placing an image of it on an album here on Empty Closets? I'm sure we would all love to see your work! :old_smile: However...no pressure!! If you'd prefer not to do so, it's fine, it's just a thought I had. And I'm glad that you didn't get caught by the scam!!

    As a fellow musician, I completely subscribe to the idea that we're artists. Our pallette is sound with which we construct aural landscapes.

    I'm glad you avoided the scam, they seem to be becoming relentless. Like quebec, I'd be interested in seeing your art too, if you're willing of course.

    I'm mostly a visual artist. Although I have been known to write the odd fanfic. I've tried writing original fiction before, but I often end up abandoning them (whoops).

    Anyway, a lot of my work is either branded content I can't share (client contracts) or sketches that I tend to share elsewhere that would identify me. However, if I make any new sketches in the new year, I might share them here in the gallery.

    I'm currently trying to improve on anatomy.

    Fair enough! Having no visual artistic talent I'm endlessly amazed at the pictures other people are able to create. Good luck on the anatomy, I would imagine that getting the relative proportions correct relative to the viewing angle is quite tricky.

    That you're all beautiful. Its weird to think my thought process has changed so much from pure negativity but I'm so much happier. I hope you all take care of yourselves.

    My friend made me happy today with the christmas postcard and using my chosen name on it. :grin: It really made my day, since I've been misgendered a lot despite people knowing.

    It can take a bit of practice. I only started painting my nails in recent years and they can be a bit messy. I'm improving though at it. What colours do you like to use? I use black for my inner emo. :sunglasses:

    I hate crowds, I hate shopping, why do I torture myself every year and leave so much holiday shopping to the last minute?!?

    Why must holidays be so stressful and people around you won't make it any less stressful.

    Yeah, crowds and shoppings are dreadful. They deserve all our hatred.

    Now that's a smart idea, give that man a cookie!! I'll do the same, spare myself the misery. I've not long come back from shopping and, to be fair, I was presently surprised. The roads were surprisingly quiet and I found a parking space right away. Only one long queue in one shop, but the staff had that queue moving quickly. Now to wrap presents. Oh, and I still haven't put any decorations up...

    I finished today, the 24th. Am I a disaster? Absolutely.

    Happy holidays! Merry Christmas for all the members of EC! (yeah, I know that, theoretically it's tomorrow)!
