Let's get you all caught up!
'The Littlest Knight', my first childrens picture book, has been doing great! we're coming up on half our initial printing sold. That's 250 copies! Regardless if we sell out of the full 500 I'm really proud at how my first publication has come along.

We had a public signing for the book at a local store, Tag Along Toys, which turned out to be a great success. 31 books sold in just a couple hours and some very happy children who were given colouring pages I redesigned from moments in the book, stickers that the author had printed up and buttons minted off my brand new button maker!! YEAH!

A Brand New AdventureI just received the first copies of my children's illustrated book titled 'The Littlest Knight' The author (Tanya Chang) and I have been working very hard and with great big smiles on our faces as we took the plunge into creating this lovely and adorable tale about a boy learning that not everything is as it seems in life.
Tonight I go through a few dozen of the 500 copies to sign and prepare them to be shipped out to eager fans who have even gone so far as to place pre-orders with us on the book! For those of you who are interested in the book we have set up an Etsy store that has shipping costs included in the sales information for North America and International shipping.
The Etsy store can be found here: http://www.etsy.com/listing/130631365/the-littlest-knight-a-dragons-tale-a
I encourage you to buy quick as they won't last long!
It's a great gift for a family member or friend and knowing that this will be read to little souls around the world fills me with joy.

One step at a time.Things have been pretty interesting the last few months!
I've finished several commissions for artwork and begun two fairly large projects!
One is a children's book called 'The Littlest Knight' which should be completed in about a month and a half.
The other is creating conceptual art for a kickstarter campaign for a game called CoreTechs.
Both are very different in their styles but have helped me really vary my portfolio and skill set. It's exciting!
I'm looking forward from hearing back from another few prospective clients and in the meantime have really been hitting the 'networking' scene. I've been trying to get all my sites updated and add a few more places to post work.
For example, just this morning I opened a facebook page dedicated to my art brand.
I also have to get on posting more of my work to Tumblr ( http://huetwoart.tumblr.com/ ), I've never really used it

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
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

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 -

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!
