Holy Party Hats Batman!Wow. thank you EVERYONE for so many happy-birthday messages.
Just want you to know that it hits home. It touches me very deeply.
I'm kind of stunned right now thinking about this whole internet thing. How, way long ago this 2 year old kid first picked up a pencil and scribbled some circles on the back of a piece of discarded assignment-paper my dad brought home from the school where he worked as a teacher. How over those awkward adolescent years when at times I hated my talent for drawing because I thought that was the only thing of value people saw in me and I didn't think it was valuable at all. But for some reason I could never quit. Through my college years when I finally grabbed hold of a dream, to be a professional artist. The frustration of seeing how far I had to go in skill and experience. And on then till today.
Life's still a struggle. I still always wish I were better at my art. Wish things were more stable and sustaining. Wish I had more time. But I figure we're all in tha

Art I like #2:iconMefitica:
The Italian artist Mefitica has a playful and fluid sense of line that I find very appealing. Her technique reminds me of Audrey Kawasaki but her character and style is all her own. Meftica's work is most compelling when her figures are simplified to their geometric essence. This gives them a very intensional, designed feeling, almost like they are icons. In her best pieces there lives a sense of delicate confidence.
Art I like #1I'd like to call attention to an artist I just came across:
Within the vast oceanic depths of anime art on deviantart, Yokko caught my eye. Just look at her compositions, amazing use of lush color and well designed shape making and I think you'll see why. Add to this unusual perspectives and incredible draughtmanship and you have someone you should be watching. Her compositions are complex and busy but through use of contrasting colors and value (that is, lights and darks) she manages to keep them from being disorienting or feeling messy- truly impressive.
I'm definitely inspired by her work. Check it out:
Change of plans...I was surprised find that I got some push back on my idea to buying commenters a premium account. After some thought about how I could give something back to the DA community I've decided to change directions- I can be a bit impulsive.
A few people requested more painting tips. I am going to make a goal to get more of those out. Also I'm going to try to highlight other artists in Journal entries and explain what I like about them. Hope these things can be helpful!

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!

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
TLECs 2nd Annual Training Show RESULTS UPSo, this is a wee bit late, please ignore the huge time gap. XD
TLEC has decided to once again, open its gates to the public for another large training show. This time, it was to be run a little differently. Last time was stressful, and thats not the point of a training show. With that being said, they set up the new list of classes and decided on a different judging style. This time, there would be playful classes as well, to make it more family oriented.
- No fighting or harassment, we are an equal opportunity stable
- All breeds may enter, but no unnatural powers may be used to get an advantage
- Judging is simple, both effort and rng for performance (guide will be listed below)
- Linearts, Photomanips, Trades, and Commissions may enter (tracing is allowed, at the very least list you have used a ref)
- Old entries may be submitted, but will receive a penalty for not fitting the setting
- No extra

Hi everyone!I usually hate seeing journals like this, but given that I’ve spent 13 years on this site and met thousands of people, knowing there are at least a few of you who would probably want to hear if something was going on, I figure this is the only way to tell you.
For the past several years I’ve been dealing with health issues that I originally attributed to being overweight and/or having a sedentary lifestyle.
A few months ago, I was dealing with a chronic sinus infection and drainage from hell. To offset my symptoms and maybe get some sleep for once, I went to bed with a breathe-right strip on my nose. I woke up with no nose strip to be found and a weird feeling in my throat, like something was there. I went to the emergency room assuming I had swallowed the strip; they looked in my throat and said they didn’t see any plastic strip, but they did see that my throat (epiglottis, vocal cords etc) was terribly swollen, and because I work at an airport, tuberculosis had to b
