Thanks for all the wonderful entries and the hard work! Judging will be done shortly. Hopefully, we'll have the results within two weeks, but it depends on how busy xDrifterr is as well :')
Cycle 8: Application open
Eight more days until the deadline!
Application from June 23 to July 8
Apply for three characters. There are no restrictions, only that they are canon characters from Final Fantasy or Kingdom Hearts (excluding the Disney characters) and no self-named characters—the same as always. You will get assigned one character with which you will ‘play’ this entire cycle.
How does it work?
After you have been assigned a character, you can join in any round – except consecutive rounds of the mini-tournaments if you were defeated or did not qualify – you like. So if you don’t have the time to join one, you can still join another round! The cycle runs for a year, so it should have something for everyone who wants to join!
More information about the actual rounds will be provided as we progress, but not all of them are tournament format!
If you have any questions feel free to ask!
Cycle 8 + DiscordHello everyone!
I am happy to announce that there will be a Cycle 8 and we have big(ish) news! We are now on Discord! I can imagine this is cause for a couple of questions, so I will answer them below! (If you have any more, just ask them! I'll add them to this journal as well.) Read on for the information you will need about Discord and the next cycle!
Now what does us having a Discord server mean for you?
Us having a Discord server means you can better coordinate your pieces with your opponent if you want, but it also means you can ask us questions quicker! Drifter and I will be online as much as possible and whenever someone posts something we'll get a pop-up, so we will see your messages sooner. You can also share your works in progress and ask feedback from your peers.
Do you need to have Discord to join this cycle?
No, you do not. It will remain on here as well. However, we still advise you to join if you
C7 Concluded! C8?Hello everyone!
Cycle 7 is now over! This means we have a winner~ I also have something about the next cycle and whether it will take place or not, but head over to the Cycle 8 section for that :)
Though I won't have time to get together with others so we can give our scores for a while, we still know the winners since the two entries were both from different brackets :D Congratulations to icecheetah for getting first place and to lemfern for getting third place! If you want feedback like the previous time, please leave a message and I'll try to arrange a feedback session asap :)
Thanks to everyone who participated this cycle!
Now on to the question of whether there will be an eight cycle since I know some of you have been waiting for a new cycle. To be honest, I am personally not sure whether this format still works. I am busy as well, so I complet
C7 FINAL ROUNDReminder: the deadline is tomorrow!
A little ahead of schedule, but I whipped up something for the final round! I can't edit the bracket file since that's Drifter's, so you'll only have this little text to go by :')

C7 ROUND 2 ResultsHello everyone!
Here are the results of round 2. (Entries are in alphabetical order.)
I discussed the entries with a couple of my friends and the judge's comments is a collection of what we all said :) I also included some (personal) tips for next time, since we are all doing this to improve our drawing skills and I felt like it might help you grow! If anything is unclear, let me know and I'll explain it differently.
Overall Artistic Execution: 12
Overall Brief Execution: 18
Grand Total: 58/100
We liked the glowing parts, which gave the scene vibrancy even though it's such a dark weather condition. However, it is difficult to see Linaly as a part of the fight. Initially my friends thought she was just a (random) bystander. Furthermore, it is not really clear that there is even a fight going on--the two in the back looking at Linaly while she contemplates her actions seem like a su
It's been a while since I last posted something since Cycle 7 is being handled by Drifter (and I actually sort of withdrew from the tournament before Round 2 started), but some of you have noticed that there have been no updates for almost a month! I, too, realised this and reached out to Drifter a few days ago, but unfortunately I have not been able to get in touch. Though I hope nothing serious has happened, I cannot wait any longer with sending out a message to those who have been waiting so very patiently. (Thanks for that! You guys are angels!)
I have closed the folder for round 2, meaning that it is hereby closed. Anyone who still wants to submit something is simply just too late (it's been a month after all). Hopefully Drifter will return at one point, but until then I can continue the cycle with the information Drifter provided at earlier stages of planning.
Now my question to you is, do you want to continue the cycle? I am quite busy with uni, so things will be
ROUND 2 CONCLUSIONA few more entries are incoming / late! We'll release results within this week, so get your entry in if you're still working on it! I'll be late with mine as well!
UPDATE: C7 - RESULTS - ROUND 2: COMMENCED! DUE TO POPULAR REQUEST, NEXT ROUND's DUE DATE HAS BEEN EXTENDED BY A WEEK. THE NEW DEADLINE IS FRIDAY, MARCH 23RD.
It took a few days, but the judge has gotten back to us! She is the wonderful Fei / Celeste - she does not have dA, but still took the time out of her day to judge us all accordingly. I am pasting all of the information here for you all to see. I was debating on just noting every individual their feedback but that's a bit of work!
Keep in mind this is all constructive feedback to help us improve on our own art! Everyone did an excellent job and we are always impressed by the work people put into art! Let's continue to grow together!
HERE GOES, DIRECT COPY & PASTE:
Overall Artistic Execution: 19

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!

Some believe that Paypal does not help in disputes over digital goods but a policy

SONIC MOVIE NEWS
update: 5/24/2019 since the critiques were harsh
the movie will be pushed back to next year. that's fair.
it's better than making the animators work harder in a short amount of time ; ;
update: 4/30/2019- Finally, a trailer! Um...well...uhhh...to be honest, I think this looks funny?
The acting/voice acting is amazing but the Sonic design itself still has its flaws I'm not too fond of. But.... yeah xD
update: 12/10/2018 (forgot to update yesterday)
I don't personally think this movie will ruin the fandom. That's a bit of a stretch.
There's always SOMETHING in Sonic that some of us like or hate. If this is something you hate,
go back to enjoying the games, fanart, or
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!
