I'm probably the only artist on the planet who struggles with online tutorials.
A Bad Art DayEver wondered what it looks like to have a bad art day? It looks a little something like this.
OC Remix artwork Chronology: A Jazz Tribute to ChSo I can finally really speak on this one. I did a couple of art pieces for this Chrono Trigger Jazz album earlier this year, announced today.
The two pieces I did were for 1999 A.D. and for The End of Time.
Tutorial: Preserving OpacityOh hey, I finally made another short tutorial about Paint Tool SAI. This time it's Preserving Opacity.
Sadness and artI've been holding this in for too long, and I just need to get this off of my chest. Yes, I still get very depressed from time to time. I don't talk about it much because I don't want to be an emo negative-nancy all the time and would rather just post a million chibi Mikus instead but fuck do I get depressed as hell sometimes. There are various reasons, but the one I really want to get off of my chest today is the one involving my art.
Here's the thing. Most of the time, I think people think that when I say that I'm depressed over my art, it's because I think it's not good enough or that I hate my ineptitude at art or something. And to be fair, I did use to feel that way. But to be frank, while there's definitely a TON of room to improve and I won't stop trying to do so, I don't think my art is bad. I don't cry because my art "sucks" or whatever; for the most part I like a lot of my new art even if I can see some of the problems in certain parts. No, the sadness and depression I feel c
*insert witty Questionnaire title here*I was tagged by :MandarinSwift: with the following:
I have to post these rules.Each person has to share 13 things about them.Answer the 13 questions asked to you and invent 13 questions the people you tag will have to answer. Choose 13 people. I chose 10, so I broke the rule anyway.You have to legitimately tag 13 people. Except I already broke this rule so I faaaaaaaail. XD
You can't say you don't do tags.Do what you want. These things shouldn't feign enforcement - it makes them sound like a silly chain letter threat. ; p
Tag-backs are ALLOWED.YOU MUST MAKE A JOURNAL ENTRY.
NO COMMENTS. Unless you're commenting about the actual entry.Actually just kidding you don't have to in my opinion.
13 THINGS ABOUT ME
I love cute things. Especially chibis. Especially chibi Miku. Hnnnnnnnnnnng.
Stupid sexy Flanders....I hate the internal conflict of liking sexy artwork (and wanting to make some of my own from time to time) and also being something of a feminist who feels there should be less of it. orz
*sigh*I tried out a new coloring technique for the last few hours. It didn't work out. I'm gonna just... sulk in a corner for a bit.

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!
Regular Payments / ABs
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

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!
You can also scroll to the bottom for links to other tut
Open - Animated Painted CharactersPrice starts at $30 and may increase depending how complexity of character~
2 Slots Only~
I will only make feral/alien creatures, no humanoids!
(But things like, werewolves and stuff are fine)
Transparent version must be requested before I start, once the animation is complete, i CANNOT go back and edit the character.
Because of this, if the character is complex, I will be making sure I have drawn the character correctly.
A none moving transparent version will also be made for you.
COMMISSIONS (on hold)
How to order:
Use commission widget with description of your order (for points), note or comment (for PayPal)
You could withdraw your request anytime, until I accept it.
But when it was confirmed, that means I started to draw and there is no way back.
Payment: Points / PayPal
