good news, everyone XDyesh, I has some "SPIKE" updates..good news, everyone XD3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I just wanted to tell you that I've finally finished planning pretty much the rest of the story! From the mid part and onwards to the ending. I wrote 7 pages of summary yesterday, and today I've just written 4 pages of a new chapter!
I know these news must torment some of you, since I don't post more chapters here.. And I'm really sorry.. BUT - this means I will be finishing "SPIKE" faster than I'd first expected! I'm hoping I'll have the whole thing done and edited by the summer, 2012, and then I'll send it to some publishers!
I kind of want to send it to some English-speaking publishers now, or soon, like, send off a few chapters and hear what they think. Because translating it to Norwegian just...it... argh, it's difficult because I can't "hear" my characters speaking Norwegian so writing them in Norwegian just doesn't feel right at all...
Do you have any suggestions for good publishers I could send some chapters to? And what makes you s
[NEW UPDATE]Methods of payment other than Paypal??[New update][NEW UPDATE]Methods of payment other than Paypal??10 months ago in Personal More Like This
So I have been made aware of a method to prevent charge back on paypal http ://viralremix.deviantart.com/journal/A-probable-solution-to-commission-chargebacks-444749482
Simply put it's to ship out a physical print to the commissioner so that it falls under paypal's seller protection. Which is great if you want to go with that method but for me is impossible. Prints cost a dollar or 2, and then a photo mailer is usually 3.50, and shipping a 8.5x11 sized envelope starts at 9 dollars in Canada. I can't eat the cost of this, and I'm not sure any commissioner really wants to eat this cost, especially when 9 dollars is starting, and can get up to 20-30 dollars if u do not live in North America. So all in all its not the best in my situation. If it works for you that's fantastic.
There is basically nothing else you can do to protect yourself when a payment is coming from a credit card. The card holder can always file for fraud and they will always win. My only solution to

BullyingBullying3 years ago in Personal More Like This
"A teacher in New York was teaching her class about bullying and gave them the following exercise to perform. She had the children take out a piece of paper and told them to crumple it up, stomp on it and really mess it up, not to rip it. Then she had them unfold the paper, smooth it out and look at how scarred and dirty it was. She then told them to tell it they're sorry. Now, even though they said they were sorry and tried to fix the paper, she pointed out all the scars they left behind. And that those scars will never go away no matter how hard they tried to fix it. That is what happens when a child bullies another child, they may say they're sorry, but the scars are there forever. The looks on the faces of the children in the classroom told her the message hit home. "
Copy and paste this if you are against bullying.

Nick.com worst video player everso, because Nickelodeon hates success and doesn't want a viewing audience older than 6 they took Avatar: The Legend of Korra off the TV and made it an online exclusive show. So that means the only legitimate way to watch it is to go to their website and watch it there. This site is horrible, in order to watch the video at all I had to register an optimum online username which was a pain in the ass (especially what they consider an appropriate password) but when I finally got the video to play it looked like PIXELLATED CRAP! There were no options to improve the video quality from what looked like 240p, and the SLIGHTEST jiggle of the mouse causes a bunch of site navigation buttons to appear right on top of the video, even if you're watching in full screen mode. I can't believe they haven't figured out how to do a god damn video player on the internet in 2014, it feels like the network is actively trying to kill this show so they can fill their timeslots with moreNick.com worst video player ever6 months ago in Personal More Like This

15 Years Ago...Today is a very significant day in cinematic history. On this very day, fifteen years ago, a film was released that would change the face of all movies everywhere, forever. A film so monumental, so influential, that it would shape the very lives and minds of all who viewed it. A poetic masterpiece, a shining monument to filmmaking, one that may never be surpassed in this or any other lifetime.15 Years Ago...3 years ago in Personal More Like This

I'm nothing if not terrible about telling you folks about things at the last minute, right? So let's not break tradition- I'm going to be heading down to LA this weekend for the Line Weight III show at Nucleus Gallery! This is a show dedicated entirely to traditional linework- I rarely get to sell originals, let alone six of them, so I'm pretty excited. Additional details:

Don't buy/sell art too cheaply!I recently stumbled upon this on tumblr and it's been circling around all my social networks. I find it really important to pass this on to all artists AND people who commission artwork. I see this way too often here and at conventions. Artists don't realize that they're affecting the overall view of how art should be priced by selling it for so low, and clients are basically paying these artists less than minimum wage for art that they think they're getting a "deal" on. To all artists and commissioners, think before setting on your prices. Is it really worth the artists time to pay them $20 for 6 hours of work?Don't buy/sell art too cheaply!1 year ago in Personal More Like This

My deviantART StoryOK I'll biteMy deviantART Story6 months ago in Art Features More Like This
I've almost been on this site for 10 years! In December it will have been 10. The only reason I started using my account was because my friend AmandaTurnage started using hers, and I wanted to be cool too, although I'd browsed here before that. The word "deviant" kinda turned me off initially (thought process "hey no I'm not deviant"), but now the word has lost nearly all of its original meaning, haha.
Without deviantArt I'm not sure I'd be where I am today, with just enough internet-cred to make friends with all the cool artists and get enough money out of my hand and to continue to put food in my mouth... but I've gone from idly doodling my characters (who got to go in The Meek 4 years later) and drawing reptiles/ dreaming of being an independent artist, to doing Avatar fanart, making tutorials and finally doing paid art for soulless corporations. I've circled back around now though and am spending my time again drawing my characters and planning comics, and doing meani

Each day, hundreds of thousands of pieces of art are submitted to deviantART. As more and more artists join, create, and share their work, it becomes easy for high quality art to miss its chance to stand out and be seen.
Our new browse mode, Undiscovered, aims to bring new, high quality artwork to the foreground.
Finding Hidden Gems
Undiscovered focuses on recently submitted artwork that has not yet drawn attention or recognition at the levels of Popular or What's Hot browse modes. Using an algorithm that identifies patterns in community behavior when curating content, Undiscovered generates a browsing experience that draws attention to creative art and talented artists that may not receive the same level of attention from other browse modes.
