new instance means new pinned toot! 🌟

I'm Rusty, a red panda with a love of crusty old electronic things! I play lots of old video games, pull them apart and document them, and sometimes stream them over on Twitch. I'm also trying to get better at drawing!

alternate/18+ account:

her eye color is something I didn't settle on until fairly recently, and I'm actually kinda tempted to change it up once in a while 'cause I really like the green here. we'll just say she's wearing colored contacts

why am I not allowed to turn these notifications off? why is it always "see less often"?

oh, right, because ~~engagement~~

my private account is not my main account. I use it very, very rarely. I would greatly prefer any notifications I get on that account to be actual human interactions and not some algorithm deciding that I really really need to see the inane bullshit that someone I'm not even following tweeted because I haven't logged in in two days

your preferences literally do not matter. you can click "see less often" as many times as you like and it won't change a damn thing

it's extremely cool and normal that Twitter keeps sending me useless notifications on my private account despite indicating repeatedly that I do not want to see their damn notifications

something I made a couple months ago and forgot to upload: a flyer for the iPAW, which Forrest developed after becoming an amputee. I'm fascinated by prosthetics, and wanted an excuse to draw something a little more detailed (and show off the flowering vine pattern on Forrest's arm)

ideally, I'd like to have both, but the idea of a Rachel avatar is just................more exciting

wanna be the chaos gremlin

the more I think about it, the more I want to commission a 3D avatar...

...but of Rachel, not Rusty


in that uncomfortable spot where there's nothing going on, I want to just sleep, but I'm not tired enough to sleep

I mean, it's not like I've been perfectly consistent with this in the past. Rachel's prosthetic foot has three toes. I don't even remember why I drew it like that, but I guess the in-universe explanation could be that she specifically requested it just so people would ask questions

I accidentally drew five fingers on a thing and now I'm having an internal debate over how many fingers my characters canonically have

what the fuck do I have to block to get this to go away and stay away forever. it keeps coming back and it keeps getting worse

having one of those nights where I'm trying to squeeze words out of my brain but just giving myself a headache in the process

maybe Rusty should spend less time playing video games and more time running from the cops 🤷

commission by sonokido on birdsite!!

"nothing is stopping you from making more OCs, dummy" but my drawing hand is tiiiiiiiired

red pandas are cool, and I am absolutely biased, but having 4 1/2 red panda OCs feels a tiny bit excessive in retrospect

imagining Rachel as a fennec/tanuki mix and screaming at what could have been
