.If it hasn't been obvious, I've been going through a pretty rough time with depression and my art for the past few years.So I've decided to officially close my dA account. I don't want to lose all of the history so I just put everything into storage. I don't anticipate coming back any time soon.If you need me, I'm still around... at times. Send me a note if you want to continue following my art (I have another gallery elsewhere I update periodically with mostly sketches because I hate my art and never have the drive to finish it) or whatever.No worries about me, I'm okay. Life's priorities have changed so I just... I don't know. But I think I'm finally done with dA.It's been a long and bumpy ride, but I can't say I won't miss it. Hope everyone is well and will continue doing what they do best. Have fun and enjoy life.Signing off,BlizzardWolf
UpdatesSo I know it's been about 6 months since I've posted anything. Just as an update: I'm alive, I'm happy, and life is going so, so, SO much better.My new job (I got it in November) has been fantastic. I love where I work and the people I work with. It makes me realize how little the previous company I worked for valued me and I now view them letting me go as a blessing in disguise.I just got back home yesterday morning from a two week trip to Las Vegas and then San Francisco for work. It was great.Working on a commission right now, intend on finishing that one today and another one tomorrow. Hope everyone is doing well!!
yep.things 'n stuff.just letting you guys know i'm alive and am trying to complete commissions, however, my tablet has decided to poo itself so it's been very difficult to complete them. It's over 10 years old though so it's had a good run.(also I have a second tablet but that thing died a year ago, it never worked properly bakfjldskfjaslkj so yeah that one's 100% dead I asked for a new one for christmas)just giving a friendly updatealso i have a new job and i love it, so i'm happy about that
Lost my job.So I'm putting another shout out there for commissions. Reason being? I lost my job on Monday. I was pretty devastated, but I can't dwell on the past. I need to make money somehow, so commissions are open and I will take just about anything. I am expanding my options to include smut to increase my audience. However, please keep in mind that I will not draw underage characters in adult situations. I have a few fetishes that I wish to not partake in (No: Scatplay, watersports, vomit, cub, diaper... Limited: inflation, vore, and a few others). I am fine with things like BDSM/S&M, violence, m/m, f/m, f/f, etc etc etc.Please let me know if you are interested. I will churn these things out like hotcakes.Again, prices are as follows:ONE CHARACTER:Sketch: $7Ink: $10Cell Shading: $15Full Color: $20Full Color plus Background: $30TWO CHARACTERS:Sketch: $10Ink: $13Cell Shading: $18Full Color: $23Full Color plus Background: $33Additional characters: +$2-$5 depending on detail/int
Marriedhttps://scontent-iad3-1.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-xlt1/t31.0-8/12109749_10207543817972715_1629801086075574559_o.jpgThat's a picture of my new hubby and I right after we said I Do and started walking back down the aisle. He pulled out a selfie stick and snagged a picture - hilarious.We had a ton of problems setting up and tearing down for the wedding, but the ceremony and reception went beautifully.We just got back from our honeymoon and he has to go to work tomorrow, so I'm going to settle down and do stuff that I've owed since before the wedding. If you guys are interested in commissions, they're still open (and gladly welcomed to help restore our funds after being completely drained for the wedding). Now that I'm graduated out of college as well, I don't anticipate turnaround times to be long at all. It all just depends on if my tablet works or not; it's been very particular the past few weeks. I need a new one desperately. We'll see if I'll be able to afford one with my next paycheck.
Things just keep getting worse...10 week recovery time.I have to get married in a healing boot, which is a gigantic cast-like thing.My aunt died suddenly last night.I can't go to her funeral because of how fucked up my time off got because of this injury.I can't have a honeymoon because of this injury.I fear my job may be in jeopardy because of all the shit that's gone down this past week.It fucking sucks.I'm so miserable right now.And I have to go back to work tomorrow. I'm not ready to go back.
BedriddenHey guys.So uh, let me preface this by pointing out that I am *extremely* clumsy.I fell and hurt myself pretty bad at work on Tuesday and now doctor's orders say I am not allowed to do anything until tomorrow at the earliest, because that's when I see an orthopedic surgeon to get evaluated on if I need surgery or not. So if I get surgery it's a minimum of 4 weeks downtime (they said 4-6 weeks), or if I don't I'm not allowed to walk or drive for 2 more weeks anyways. So this will be fun trying to figure out how to do my job.But we'll see. Just a heads up. I'm gonna try to get some art done but it depends on if the medication they have me on knocks me out or not. So far its track record has me asleep for at least 6 hours every time I take a pill, so... yeah.Fun stuff.Plus, my wedding is in 44 days. I really, really, really hope this is all done by then. :/
Wedding CommissionsIn order to help pay for the wedding, I'm opening up commissions. I will draw just about anything unless it's majorly obscene (scatplay, watersports, vomit, etc - if you are uncertain, please ask!). Smut is questionable, please ask me what you're wanting and I'll let you know if I'm comfortable doing it or not. Shooting for a turnaround time per commission of 2-3 weeks. Here are my prices:ONE CHARACTER:Sketch: $7Ink: $10Cell Shading: $15Full Color: $20Full Color plus Background: $30TWO CHARACTERS:Sketch: $10Ink: $13Cell Shading: $18Full Color: $23Full Color plus Background: $33Additional characters: +$2-$5 depending on detail/interactionIf I need to clarify anything or if you have any questions, let me know! I will respond via messages, comments, or you may email me at blizzardwolf [ at ] teamartail [ dot ] com. Thank you!!
I'm alive. Promise.Life's just been absolutely chaotic lately. In a good way. Two important things:1. I FINALLY graduated college! It took 8 years, but I'm DONE.2. My boyfriend proposed!! We're finally engaged after being together for 6 years.So I'm still alive, but crazy busy. I have two commissions I still need to finish, but I'm going to get them done this week. I promise.With that being said, I definitely need to take commissions again to help pay for our upcoming Wedding (October 3 of this year), as we have to foot pretty much the entire bill ourselves. I'm gonna churn them out like hotcakes for whoever wants them and not take forever like I usually do (because I suck, I'm sorry).Love you guys! I'll see if I can post some stuff this week.

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.Disclaimer 1: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).Disclaimer 2: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 / ABsSome believe that Paypal does not help in disputes over digital goods but a policy

Printed Minky Reviewedit to add: yes the printed minky is washable! I didn't wash mine, but according to spoonflower "Wash separately in cool or warm water using a gentle machine cycle. Machine dry using a low temperature or permanent press setting and remove promptly to avoid wrinkles." Although please don't machine wash a plush, ahah. Just the fabric.------------------So I recently got the chance to play with printed minky! Here's a sort of review about itBought from: spoonflower.comPrice: $28/yrd. Very expensive, but for a very versatile product of this quality it's definitely justified.Shipping: Only $6 to Canada, with tracking, took about a week and a half to arrive once shipped, no duties. A+File prep: spoonflower has very simple requirements that are easy to follow. I scanned my pattern pieces, cleaned them up and colored them, then I copied them into a file that was set to spoonflower's specifications (150dpi, set to the width of minky. I added length as I needed it). To make sure my pieces
