Hey! I'm Ren.
I'm a grey fox, an artist (primarily with watercolor, ink, and acrylics), a nonbinary trans girl, and I dabble in just about everything creative. I also struggle with severe depression and use platforms like this to discuss and process it.
I have a terrible tendency to avoid initiating social interactions, but please, feel free to talk with me! I'll open up rather quickly.

I often wonder when I see someone type "macos" what exactly they are talking about.
I am under the assumption that it is "Mac OS." And not a macaroni and cheese taco.

It really annoys me that, with all of these suggested queries from a search on the reasons behind the popularity of crystal healing, none of the answers when expanded are a straightforward "There are no measurable benefits from crystal healing." A few of them at least have a disclaimer that there is "no scientific evidence" behind it, but that's still buried under paragraphs about chakra and some nebulous and undefined "energy."
Mysticism as an emotional and spiritual tool is perfectly fine by me. But misleading people into thinking it can be used as an alternative medicine is dangerous.

My brain just isn't working right now. I want to get page three of my comic done (yes, I am working at the pace of a small, shelled, terrestrial gastropod on this), but I just can't picture anything or come up with words.
And this same inability to *do* has been a major part of my life recently. It has been a source of significant stress.

i'm vaguely looking at Talkspace or similar therapy-via-text options; does anyone have experiences with these things?
bonus points if you're (polyam / trans) and had issues relating to that to talk about with them and had positive outcomes!
A lot of people who want to learn art give up very quickly, believing they don't have the ability to learn.
Talent is a lie though. It doesn't exist.
Sometimes people will try and not learn as quickly as they think they should. Yet nobody would pick up a violin and expect to learn to play all on their own without anyone or anything to guide them. There are scales and techniques to practice.
For art, this involves re-learning how to see things, so you can form specifics about the shape, rather than just creating a symbol of it in your mind. And this involves developing the coordination for mark making. And how to construct shapes so they look like something.
It's no wonder people get frustrated and give up when they try to figure out the entire history of art on their own.
Use some resources and learn! I promise it's a lot more effective to practice *well* than to just hope that scribbling on paper will make you better.
Hi I'm a fox.
My two emotional states are shameless demand for affection and horrible depressiveness. These are not exclusive.
Oh, and I make art!
