Ok so I have been getting a lot of messages recently from people saying they have the same problem with paint tool SAI so I decided to update this journal so everyone can go on working and saving files in SAI.
I don't know if there is a way to completly fix this bug but there definately is a way to avoid it!
I would like to thank FlumpyDuck for her very helpfull response:
"If you open a PSD in SAI for some reason it has a meltdown and won't save anything as .sai, so if - like I had - you've just done a couple hours' work and you don't want to lose everything, you /can/ save it as a .psd file and keep editing it from there. If you absolutely need it to be a .s

YEAH GUYS we want a mascot! Read on for guidelines, rules and prizes!
What's this contest about exactly?
A group mascot is basically a little character that the group displays on its homepage as a,,, well, a mascot! Mascots are just a fun little patron for the group, a symbol sort of. If you enter, your job will be to design a character like the one I just described. The winning character will be selected by the mods, and judged by quality of design and not necessarily artistic skill.
What should the mascot look like?
The mascot should look like a humanoid, anthro, or kemonomimi. It does not have to be themed on adoptables, but by all means it can be! It should be able to be chibi-fied, too.

As you know, form time to time I write about the life of being an andmin of a group and how you see a lot of different reactions around here on DA...
You have probably heard and read a lot of such literature before, some of them probably here on ASA.
Funny how big groups attract all kinds of people, not even trying to be disrespectful here but come on...some of this stuff is too funny not to laugh at.
Recently I came across a submission that had been declined, and there were some hate comments on it, as usual when some people get declined...sort of what happens in some cases... wouldn't you say.
In this particular case I got a proper laugh out of it, as I was just reading through the hate comments and the way and points the person brought up made me well, LOL...

Carciphona volume 1 sold out not long ago, and I’ve finally restocked those this week!Shipping prices lowered as promised in the past month!
I’ve been working on figuring out a new shipping company last month, and I am ready (I think LOL MAYBE) to switch over! Shipping has always been the bane of my shop because I’m in Canada. I’ve got tons of questions about it in the past year that range from confused to outraged. But it’s in my best interest to find ways to lower shipping prices, because while some people are in such disbelief that Canadian shipping can be that bad (it can) might even think that I bloat shipping prices to make more money, high shipping costs actually makes me lose business because SURPRISE, no one wants to buy overpriced things.
The new company ships through USPS which means I can lower shipping prices to USA by as much as 70%

(CLOSED) AUCTION - Sketch ''Shy Kitty''Here's the third pencil sketch auction. If you missed the previous ones, the idea here is that I'm selling original physical copies of some of the pencil sketches I did earlier this year. This time it's a sexy catgirl in bed. See below for details on the item, links to samples, and instructions on how to bid! This auction is open for roughly 6 days, ending on 25th.More Like This
BONUS FOR PARTICIPATING:
Everyone who bids on a sketch auction during December will participate in a raffle I'll hold at the end of the year. The randomly-drawn winner of the raffle will receive at least two items, which can be either original sketches/doodles or leftover prints (probably one of each!). Your bid doesn't need to win an auction in order to participate in the raffle! Bidding in each auction earns you an additional raffle ticket (but only one per auction item!). So go ahead, up that bid. Even if you don't win the auction, you might win the raffle.

(CLOSED) - AUCTION - ''Beach Pranks FTW''So, I figured it's a shame having the pencil works I did earlier this year just gathering dust (well, not literally, since they're still in the sketchbook, but I'm sure you get the idea), so I figured I'd sell off some of them. For how much? I dunno! You tell me! So, let's try an auction! I'll start off with the older ones and if this goes well, then I'll move on to the newer ones! I'll probably post some promotions and reminders about these auctions again, so bear with this campaign bombing your updates every now and then.More Like This

What sucks is that both Luis and I are struggling as far as cash is concerned. I got some projects I'm working on and would like them to get colored. Luis is in super cheap mode so he doesn't want to shell out a lot of money for color work. Granted I could just let him color my projects .Its just he is not consistent or as good as the other people with commission for color work. Still he is an option.

Is it Me? Or is Deviantart Dying?I was chatting to some art/writing friends online, and it seemed to be something we agreed upon.More Like This
Deviantart seems kinda dead, or like it's dying or something. Or is that just for me ( and the people I've spoken to?). Honestly, I think a lot of the changes they made are responsible.
Disclaimer (because I always need one for some reason). This is my journal. It is my opinion. If you have a different opinion I'd love to hear it. I'm not out to offend anyone (kind of sadly hilarious I have to post these more and more lol ).
I've been here a long time. Well, I suppose I wasn't active for many years. I lived in Japan and Deviantart has no presence there. But then 3.5 years ago I decided to teach myself to paint, so I suddenly became active.
I think a lot of the recent Site Updates to Deviantart have really made things hard for those of us who are serious about artwork ( or maybe everyone?). Usually, it was fairly standard that when you post a new

To sell anything (pictures, writing, crafts...etc) you need first to be discovered and seen by potential customers. Here is how you can make that happen!
