Making $$ - recommendations?For those who don't know, a lot has happened in the many months I've been gone.
First and foremost, I graduated high school and moved out this year. I live with my boyfriend of two years but I most definitely save up enough money for moving out. Which was a major mistake on my end, but no one gave me any advice; I was excited and ready to "adult".. or so I thought.
Anyways, I have a full time job and was actually just promoted. I'm also a tattoo apprentice, hopefully soon I will be tattooing by the beginning of next year... I just want to be at a place where I can be making art for a living, or for a good chunk of it.
Financially, I've been VERY stressed and I'm looking for ways to making art and money again. My question is what are some of the best ways that you fellow deviants/artists/adults have been making much needed money either online or in the real world? I have a few different paths started that could help me out but I was curious if anyone can share their experien
I have returnedAfter maybe a year or so of a hiatus, I'm somewhat back?
I want to be drawing more than dogs and I have been outside of DA, go to my Instagram (@ desert_moose) or Facebook (Ellie Kosto) if ya wanna see some of that.
I may even post some because why not??
Anyways, commissions will open up again soon, I'd be happy to draw some OC's then. Give me some time to get back into this website and I'll be back into the swing of things.

the new and improved alaskassFor those who haven't gotten the memo yet; I'm focused on working towards a portfolio- meaning I want to show the best of my artistic capabilities, and call me lame but drawing furries only can get me so far.
I want to become a tattoo artist, and before I get myself settled into that career I want to explore and play with as many art mediums, styles etc.
Not only does this look nice in my portfolio, it's fucking fun.
SO before you guys start spamming me with questions asking why I haven't done commissions, well it's because my computer I used to work on no longer works for that purpose. My computer now is completely for school work, yay.
I still would really like to find a way to work on your commissions, I just don't know how to at the moment
SO if someone really wants a refund, let me know please, I'm sorry I wont have them done any time soon but I really do want to get them done when I have the chance to.

Offer to Co-Own Cinnas! Org. Cinna design and MYO!I have two wonderful cinna's, which I love so very much, but I don't use them as much as I would like.
After some time of thinking I'm finally ready to share my babes with some other people.
I'm going to search through both the offers and people, if you offer a lot but you have a record of being untrustworthy or problematic- I'm not interested.
I do have some simple rules though:
- use the character
- help build a background/story for the character
- commission art of the character and use it
- roleplay with the character
You CAN NOT (without permission or discussion)
- sell or trade the character
- alter the design/appearance of the character
- claim full ownership of the character
If you are interested, I'm mainly looking for money, but I could also use more art!
There is no deadline to offer, I'll give it some time but if I see a good offer from a good person I'm taking
I need a new computer-commission slots still open!
I am in need of money - I'm not worried about my car anymore because I can't drive it yet and my parents are making no effort to get me behind the wheel.
So NOW I'm saving up for a new laptop, this laptop currently is crashing a lot, the battery has a short life and the track pad doesn't work. (It's been like this for awhile but since I can still do stuff on it I never bothered to upgrade.) This computer has given me multiple scares lately, it doesn't run as fast as it used to even after I cleaned everything up.
My goal is to save about $700-$800, I'm not set on a brand or model, but from looking online most laptops that fit my requirements and needs are in this price range.
Although I would kill to have a Razor Blade like damn
Also, I don't think I'm going to buy it ASAP, maybe when Christmas comes around and everyone has insane deals~
I'll be opening commissions soon, I just need

Protecting yourself from Paypal chargebacksI decided I'd write something on this since it seems to be affecting a lot of my friends and artists I'm close to. I'll start with a few disclaimers.
I am not a finance expert. I have never filed a chargeback nor have I been in a chargeback dispute (fortunately). I have done some research out of both curiosity and out of desire to help out the community a bit. This is going to be quick(ish) and summarized. I'm also going to be changing some things to the way I sell as well (obviously).
This journal isn't about what to do in a chargeback dispute but rather, how to set up your sales so that you'll have the upper hand when having to deal with a dispute. I've included some useful links at the bottom for further information!
Regular Payments / ABs
Some believe that Paypal does not help in disputes over digital goods but a policy
Close To You - Lyrics - Sans VersionTHE FLOWERS OF THE NEW AND LAUGHTER OF THE PAST,
THEY'RE BEAUTIFUL LIKE YOU, BEAUTY UNSURPASSED!
GONE WITH A WHISPER, YOU FALL ASLEEP LIKE DEATH,
BREAKING THROUGH THE EARTH, YOUR SMILE SHINES AGAIN!
MY EMPTY GRATITUDE, ANOTHER EMPTY THANK YOU,
I FINALLY LEARNED REGRET, FROM WORDS I'VE ALWAYS SAID.
NEVER MEANT TO SPEAK TO HURT, YET IT HURT TO PUT IN WORDS,
GOODBYE WHEREVER YOU ARE, GOODBYE UNBROKEN HEART.
IN TRUTH I WANT TO FEEL, THE TRUTH I WANT TO SEE,
I'M TRYING TO EMBRACE YOUR DRIFTING HEART AND SMILE!
WHENEVER I BEGIN TO FEEL THE BURNING TEARS OVERFLOWING FROM MY EYES,
I KEEP ON LOOKING FORWARD AT YOU, HOPING THAT YOUR LIGHT WILL NEVER PASS ME BY!
I WONDER WHAT THE STARS THAT SPARKLE IN YOUR EYES ARE HIDING FROM MY MIND,
HIDING FROM MY OPEN HEART AND FROM YOUR OPEN HEART!
TOGETHER, YOU AND I WILL ALWAYS BE ALIVE, CONNECTED, CLOSE TO YOU I'LL STAY!
AS LONG AS I CAN HOLD YOUR HAND AGAIN AND AGAIN, FOREVER, I WILL FIND MY WAY!
YOU MAY NEVER ANSWER BACK MY CALL BUT YOU SMILE AT ME WITH

Reading Visual Novels Using AGTH/TA/ATLAS/ITH:icononewithrussiaplz::iconsaysplz:Greetings!
This tutorial will explain to you how to read (almost any) Visual Novel in English without prior Japanese knowledge using Translation Aggregator, AGTH or ITH, and ATLAS. These programs do not modify the games files, so they should be safe to use without causing issues with developers.
I will begin with a short explanation as to what these programs are, followed by steps on how to set them up and finally some extra tips and tricks you could use to further the translations!
Feel free to ask questions through comments. Just keep in mind that I'm no expert at these programs and I myself used a tutorial to understand the basics of the programs, so I may be unable to answer some questions. Most links I supply will take you to the developer forums where you can download and ask questions about the specific program. No better help than the kind that comes from the ones who made it!
You can also scroll to the bottom for links to other tut
Great book for learning about pixel artI read through this a while ago and have been meaning to plug it here since I've always found good pixel art guides hard to come by and this was super helpful to me!
This book is very thorough and goes from how pixel art was originally made for old games (which I've always wondered about and find super interesting) to basic pixel art concepts and on to more advanced subjects including animation! I learned some new stuff and it clarified other things I knew about but didn't really have a clear understanding of. It's also very visually oriented so there's a lot of clear examples of the concepts covered.
There's also a free preview available here if you want to check that out first -
COMMISSIONS (on hold)

You could withdraw your request anytime, until I accept it.
But when it was confirmed, that means I started to draw and there is no way back.

importantish? updates and junkI'm sorry for the inactivity - this summer was really eventful for me, and school starts this Friday.
I promise to finish up my to-do list this week so I don't blow it off till my next break, in fact I sketched most of them so they should all be done soon.
After I finish up my to-do list, I think I'm going to actually take a break from drawing furries. I honestly feel that I could be spending my time working on art that can benefit me, the only beneficial thing with drawing dogs is internet furry fame + money, and I'm not looking for that right now?
It's really hard to explain what's going on in my mind, being on deviantart stresses me out in a way? It's over run with copycat 13 year olds and whiny "I get what I want" adults; and I don't enjoy the atmosphere?
Sure of course, I'm going to be drawing dogs here and there, but I really need to focus on school because that is way more beneficial/important.
I'm not gone for good either, there will just be more art that I actually enjoy makin
