mental health, where I've been 

So, I haven't been on this account too much recently. There are a few reasons for that.

First of all: I've moved! To a different account I mean. I'll still be using this one to boost important things and artists I like and to post my own art, but my musings and depression posting will be elsewhere.

Second, I wanted to have a more private account with restricted follows. So pardon if I don't advertise it here. A few close friends have already found me there, but that's about all I'm comfortable with.

Third, my depression has been very severe recently. Extremely. About as bad as it gets. So I haven't been able to do much more than sleep, work (barely), and try to keep myself alive.

Anyway, I'll be around. Just a lot quieter than I used to be.

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.

> "What musical instrument do you play?"

"The Mandelbrot Set and other fractals!"

> "Uh, okay, what does that sound like?"

*emits a wide range of harsh discordant tones reminiscent of dial up modems, plus some calming musical notes, too*

Here's a super weird piece of music I've been working on!

I'm probably going to restart on it, though. It needs a lot of work, and while this was a good exercise to get ideas, I'm not sure I accomplished what I wanted to with it.

More ice crystals. These are 2-3 cm long each, formed on a marshy meadow near a river over night.

Just finished this older piece that I've had lying around for a while!

I may come back to it at some point in the future and redo it, but for now, I'm satisfied enough with it.

I've been learning how to do printmaking, it's really fun.

Here's some tunes I wrote!
I hope they're good, but they're quite different from anything I've done before. They even include some of the worst key changes I've ever had to do!

IMPORTANT: I'll be doing these *after* I catch up on my other commissions, I just have some bills that need paying before then, so it may take a couple weeks. Keep this in mind!!

Who wants some eye candy from me playing with masking fluid? Unfortunately I discovered that the textured paper does NOT work with it and it got all ripped up but that was the point of the exercise so it's fine 😅

If anyone with or without experience in music could tell me what they think of this piece so far, I'd be grateful.

I'm trying to get opinions because I did some weird things with it, including perhaps the most difficult key change I'll ever have to do (two scales that share only one note), so I'm not sure what to think of it myself. Does it flow well? Does it sound too wonky? I'm fine with some dissonance, I just want it to sound intentional.

Une commission fleurie que j'ai adoré faire. Hate que ce choker aille rejoindre sa nouvelle maison ✨

I still have a bunch I wanna do with this, but here's a dragon-sona!

Well, a wingless, furry dragon that probably does not breathe fire.
