This is just too much for me to handle right now....
School starts in less than 2 weeks and I am going to need so much money to pay for all my new supplies and textbooks, my gas/parking....this seriously could not be worse timing.
I'm sorry.....I feel like a terrible person asking for help. I try very hard to be completely self-sufficient mentally/emotionally/financially. But despite what many people on here think, I do not have a lot of money, and $2,000 is not a small amount to just have robbed back you out of the blue.
If you would like to donate, even just a dollar, my paypal is firstname.lastname@example.org ;-;
Seriously...anything is beyond appreciated in this stressful time.
I need to get out of the negatives as soon as I possibly can. /:

Because of the amount of notes I'm receiving regarding this matter, I decided to write a journal entry (though I think it's obvious, but oh, well (TwT; ).
I don't draw art for free (except when I draw for myself, but that's a different matter altogether).
I'm sorry if you don't have money to buy art in general, or if my commissions are too expensive for you, I really am. In an ideal world, I would finish each pic in 10 seconds and move onto the next pic, and then I'd give free art, lower

Paypal TransactionsJust a small, yet important update for future commissions/sales if I'll open, for anyone whoever pay via Paypal system:Paypal Transactions3 years ago in Personal More Like This
1. If you are sending a payment to me, please never send under "friends and family", "gift" etc. categories which doesn't chrage an additional fee when I receive the money. I will accept the fees on Paypal! Here is an explaination:
"You can never control what your commissioner is going to say. If they select "send as gift" or other options, you are breaking their ToS and you will be so very banned if they catch you doing this. It only takes one slip up for it to happen. I have seen this happen and never advise people to tell people to send as anything but a service.
Never try to stretch your definition of "friend and family" and hope that "teeechnicly it COULD be your friend depending on your definition heheh" will fly. Paypal will not split hairs with you. If they decide that this person does not qualify to be your friend, their judgment is final. I

The Pixlett fraud has been fixed!I have some AMAZING NEWS ;A;The Pixlett fraud has been fixed!5 months ago in Personal More Like This
Everyone who has been scammed by Pixlett / ToxicMutagen is getting fully reimbursed by Paypal for our losses!
First off, the other night, when I logged onto Paypal, I saw messages that the chargebacks filed against me had been closed! :'D
In the "Status Details" section, it appears as though Paypal actually decided to investigate against Pixlett and realized that maybe HEY, THIS IS SUSPICIOUS AFTER ALL
Then, when I checked my email last night, I had some emails from Paypal.
They wrote that they are making an exception to the chargeback rule, and fully refunding me ALL money that I lost due to Pixlett (from the first incident in July!)
(P.S. I don't know why the percentage signs are showing up in the email, but the amounts are how much I got chargebacked for.)
So yes, this means that WE WON.
After being told by Paypal over and over that

Improving your Manga-styleManga and Anime are a new generation of art, spreading all over the world right now. It is an important aspect of Japanese culture, a solid part of the youth-generation in the US and slowly starts spreading in Europe as well. Even though many people still dont know what Mangas or Animes actually are, most kids already know and they even try to draw this new kind of art themselves. This way the tolerance among adults starts growing as well, a good way to expand the Manga-culture.Improving your Manga-style7 years ago in Art Features More Like This
But as for any kind of art, many people have problems in improving their own style or even finding it. This news-article is directed to any kind of artist that is interested in improving himself/herself.</i>
Ive been asked multiple times how some artists manage to improve very fast and others seem to never improve at all and even though I first thought it has to do with practice I had to admit myself that it does not only depend on mere practice but much more on how you practice and especi

UtaPri CONTEST starts! Rules~Thank you very much to lovely people, who helped me with prizes, so I finally may to write rules a dates//UtaPri CONTEST starts! Rules~2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Well, the theme of this contest is Music ART!
You need to draw a work listening to one of this composition about love (and several of them about suffer and something like that). Usually, songs have something like a plot, so just understand it and draw the art about this song~~
The decision about particularly THIS theme was clear - Uta no Prince-sama is anime about music ^U^
All difficulty of this contest depends on the different random songs' plots and how you may draw UtaPri characters in this situation (music situation) using draw skills and your imagination
It will be okay to draw UtaPri guys in the count what you want ^U^ If you'd like to draw a couple, it will be AWESOME really!
The best way is to draw a classic couple (Haruka+somebody), not shounen-ai one
Fandom PainsSo I'm over on Equestria Daily yesterday, and they've got this discussion going where the fans have to think up their own episode ideas. And while a few people are taking it seriously and exploring new possibilities of the characters' personalities and the show's universe, most people are just coming up with the most disturbing self-gratifying shit. And without the slightest trace of irony, either.Fandom Pains1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I was warned about the unsavory side of the fanbase when I started watching the show, but I figured "Oh, I can just ignore that, it's no big deal." But they're everywhere. People who draw creepy explicit fan art. Or write vicious hate-fics. Or rant endlessly about how Twilight having wings is somehow a travesty to all mankind. Or have disturbing unhealthy obsessions with side characters. It all feels like they're feeding into the brony stereotype, not because they genuinely like the show that much, but as if they're just trying to say "Look at me! I'm a grown man who likes

The whole interview was posted a couple of days ago and I wanted to give an accurate translation (google translator can never be trusted) so here it is! c: (RP2 are the interviewers while HM stands for Hiro Mashima, just in case you're confused.)
RP2: The first thing to do is to thank sensei for giving us these minutes. We'd like to start with: why are your works always around magic?
HM: Because I'd love to learn how to do magic.
RP2: Do you feel comfortable developing stories centered on magic?
HM: Yes, I feel very comfortable because magic is what allows you, on one side, to dream while on the other side, gives you a big amount of freedom. In the end, it is a fantasy world, but the feelings of the characters have a special importance.

Fandom Pains, Cont'd.Allow me to clarify my point further. I don't mean to say "everyone has to write fanfiction the same way" or "don't draw this kind of fan art". People can write or draw whatever the hell they want, and I don't have to look at it if I don't want. But my main gripe is when the perverted vocal minority of a fanbase gets so loud and obnoxious that it overtakes the nice quiet people who just want to enjoy the show or movie or whatever. When the people who partake in the sleazier side of fandom take the spotlight and become the public's main perception of what all fans are like.Fandom Pains, Cont'd.1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Not all MLP fans are demented furries with a fetish for clopfic; most of us just think it's a cute little show with a great cast of characters. Not all Wreck-It Ralph fans are insane Turbo defenders or squicky Jawbreaker shippers; most of us just find it to be a very entertaining and inspiring film. But when those obnoxious fans start acting out more, whether it's just because they want to make a point or because the
SAI pressure sensitivity SOLUTION!!!Now, there has been a lot of problems over this I'm gonna tell you what to do with some handy screenshots.SAI pressure sensitivity SOLUTION!!!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
It gets really annoying when you loose pressure sensitivity and you're in the middle of drawing and that is because sometimes SAI can lose you're settings, after you have been told to remove all preferences and that, you, like me, may get no response from your pen but only when you press hard on it. I have found a great solution.
This might not work for all users, because of the type of laptop and the type of tablet because it has no sensitivity installed on it at all., but I hope that this will work for you.
Note: Before we go on I forgot to say that you need a tablet, Wacom preferably and you also have to have purchased SAI.
So, thats what it looks like. yours might be different though, but the next steps will help. Go to Others - Options - DigitalSupport

Contest Announcement~I am officially announcing my first contest, i have planned this for a month and finally i can officially announce itContest Announcement~10 months ago in Deviant Events More Like This
The idea of this contest is simple, draw one of my OCs Crow or Fox or both if you feel inspired!
They are my original characters. They are creatures with magic but that doesn't make the very special because they live in a world where many things are magical. Also they live in a forest. The place they live in has no cities or technology, only clans of different magical creatures. They have absolutely no contact with humans either although humans do exist in this world, these creatures just stay away from them. Fox is cunning and composed, while Crow is easily manipulated and sincere. Fox is blackmailing him and keeping him under her thumb because she wants to keep him close to her and that is the only way she knows how.
here are images of them for inspiration
