How to draw during 365 daysMore Like This
By the beginning of 2014 I started this account and uploaded a doodle a day during a year. It was the most challenging thing I ever did and it helped me loads on improving my art.
I've seen a lot of mentions on my inbox about artists that are starting their own 365 Days challenge and I want to write this journal to share what I've learned through my experience and maybe encourage some of you to join this long term journey.
It's okay to start simple!
My first doodles were waaay more simple than the other ones. If I had to start the project again I would still do them simple. Of course, starting this challenge is very exciting but it's a dead end if you put a heavy load on yourself at the beginning!
Focus on knowing your pace first. How much time does it take you to finish your drawings?

Blatantly breaking my Terms of Service will result in blacklisting from my closed species and banned from ever purchasing from me again. This includes, but is not limited to;
Failing to pay me for an adoptable in either an auction or a trade/sale.Attempting to scam by selling/trading an adoptable from my species that you do not own.Filling a chargeback. The buyer is then forbidden from using the adoptable, and further use will be considered as a violation.

By buying an adoptable, you’re purchasing a partial right to a design. I have t
The time for publishing is at hand...almostIt's been a while since I've written or said much, but with graduate school approaching quickly, it's time to get some things in gear. And one of those things...More Like This
I've talked about this subject in the past, but I have not had the time to really tackle it yet. But now I am running out of time, and the only way this is going to get done is if I try and do it right now. Unfortunately, this has proven to be a problem, as in my research I have learned that copyright laws are pretty strict...and getting permission from a company like GAME FREAK inc. to use their copyrighted material is proving to be less than possible...
Right at the moment, I still have some things to take care of, namely the fact that I will be taking part in a Japanese documentary this next week involving the paleontology work I conducted for my senior thesis. Now, I'm not thinking that my work here will ever come up, but...well, at this point, stranger things have happ

How to Pay artists using PaypalI'm still getting payments for digital artwork that require shipping because people forget to click the 'no shipping required' box. I can have my account flagged if I don't ship items that apparently need to be shipped. Please be sure to take care when ordering digital commissions from artists! Here is a super cool Tumblr post that shows you how to do the right thing when ordering digi-commissions. I'll be using this helpful post when people order my commissions so people have a visual ref.

EDIT: Paypal recently revamped their site so everything is set up differently (I kinda liked how it was set up before) Here's how the 'goods and services' page should look: http://fc08.deviantart.net/fs70/f/2014/185/8/d/image_by_araktugage-d7p8w6w.jpg
See how the address says it's optional? It's best not to choose any address when sending a payment for a digital commission(s) unless there's something that do

“Yes.” Sherlock nodded in response.
Silence. It was silent again. John grimaced. Not that this was going to ever be a comfortable conversation or situation, for that matter, but still—
“John, I am sorry. Listen, I can explain—“
“No.” John interrupted brusquely, his eyes downcast. “No. Wait.” His eyes now reluctantly shifted back to meet Sherlock’s as he attempted a small smile. Removing his coat slowly, John walked over to the chair and slowly sat in the chair across from Sherlock. He then sighed, uncertain of even his own feelings. He should be happy, should he not? After all, he had spent the last two years of his life thinking about the man now sitting across from him, hoping that somehow, somewhere he was still alive and well, even though he himself had witnessed his death.
John sighed again. The man had not changed one bit since he had last se
