... If you see sococo following you it's me. I jumped ship with my art shit again. Pixels only here. Woop woop!
Sketchblog Update #2I've drawn a bunch of stuff.
Still doing studies focusing on head and figure proportions/lay ins. It's hard but fun. Started timed gesture drawing yesterday and boy am I shit at it haha. That's going to be the slowest improvement I think it's hard to turn off the "draw the outline of everything" part of the brain and focus on just action lines etc especially when all the poses are like contorting gymnastics insanity with extreme foreshortening. All the sites I have do not have the best images to be honest at least from an extreme beginner perspective. Oh well really struggling with this part of my studies but I hardly ever did it so it's understandable.
I've really buckled down and created a nice work space, made a study schedule etc. so There's a lot of new stuff on the blog haha. Having fun though! <3
I start an AutoCAD drafting class next week more professional development stuff which shouldn't cut into my art studies too much. Once I'm done this co
Sketchblog Update #1I'm really digging into drawing properly once again lol. I think it will really help me in my career so why not. Time to stop procrastinating and just get my pencil moving. Stop being chicken shit, paralyzed by fear of failing etc. lol.
So I'm just cataloging my progress on my very bare bones blog. Weeeeeeeee
p.s. I don't anticipate much finished work for a while so my page here may suffer. I don't find deviantart to be much of a community for pursuing getting really good at the art thing unless I'm missing it because there is so much shit to wade through. What's with social media sites just trying to be everything to everyone in life? It totally dilutes the experience and loses sight of the point of the community in the first place I think. Way too much going on here for me to find anything lol. That rant wasn't really intended but yeah XD
Sketchy BlogWell I brought back my sketch blog. I already posted more in the last week than I ever did and I started back in 2011 lol.
Like I mentioned last journal it's been almost 3 years since I last updated! For the last 2 years I've been working on indie film productions, have joined the local union, and started an apprentice program in the Art Department. I always knew I wanted to be in entertainment involving art somewhere. I still want to work towards concept art but figured in the meantime I should just get into film at least to start somewhere and get some experience. Anyway finally left Porter Airlines and have ditched the indie film fun for actual paid work However I'm still in the early stages and need to add to my portfolio hence the sketch blog and coming back here to get some sort of daily routine going.
I decided to mess around with watercolours. I had this idea for a thing I wanted to do and then I started buying art supplies like a mani
I'm dolling!!!Haha wow it's been what almost 3 years since my last update. Lots of things have changed but I still sometimes miss dolling. I need to actually beef up my portfolio a bit for professional purposes but well can't hurt to throw a pixel or two in. Actually I don't know if I'll do anymore or not it's been pretty painful and I've wanted to quit several times and move on to my other art but I'm sticking it out! Woooooo!!
If anyone's still there XD... look out for my entry to FionaCreates' Digital Dolls Contest!. Having fun with it but I sort of forgot how to doll!
thank you!!just writing this quick little guy to say thank you for all the recent watches and faves everyone!!!
i really appreciate it ever so very much! i know some people don't like it when you thank on their page so i've decided to stop this forever XD. i may just make a page block thing for it hehe.

Long PhotoJournal: XMas 2011Hi All! I was bored and needed a break from my faery pageant entry so I decided to gather up all my seasonal winter pics and put them together. Rather than uploading them one by one and driving you all nuts, here's a nice loooong photojournal lol. I'll update a bit later explaining each pic. Tree lights, and chocolates, and skating and such!
Party Time! (happy new year)edit: wow!! someone gifted me a 3 month premium membership thank you so so so much whoever you are!!!! pls note me so i can give you virtual hugs and kisses XD. this is greatly appreciated thank you again so much !!!!

so i dolledthe last journal claiming how inspired i was to doll was a bit of a joke lol. i DID add a new set of poses to coco in the six month time period since that journal but yeah. pathetic attempt really.
i'm doing my layout. i've been slaving over the layout doll/layout all yesterday. like... all night seriously. it felt like the good old days where sleep was not even in my thought process XD. anyway the layout's coming along well and it's sexy. i'm excited to finally finish!! it features the latest doll i uploaded.
in other news merry belated christmas everyone! hope everyone's had a lovely holiday. i ate altogether FAR too much and was sent home with even more food than i know what to do with as my mom's like "I'M STARTING A CLENSE RIGHT NAO", and sent me home with all the carbs, candy, and meat. not that i'm complaining i'm set for a month's worth of turkey and ham samiches. was a nice quiet one with just me and mom and all the usual xmas movies, tons of food and drink and lazing

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

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 it
Bought from: spoonflower.com
Price: $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
