Inspiredplease, if you have a moment, have a look at my newer of two blogs.
my scattered thoughts, meanderings and murmured musings are loosely gathered here.
BLOG AND ARTICLES, AWWW YEEEEAH!So:
Squeeze has a blog. It's about food. Go and follow it NOW.
Squeeze has also had an article published!! AWESOME.
Go and look at both! Let me know what you think, homies!
OpenQuaking, steel wing-tipped butterflies
brush insides out to out,
set me down gently,
let me shiver through your darkest days
let me warm the summer storms
and unbraid the skin from the hips
the sighs from the lips
let the rain fall down and cleanse
the very gravestones from the past
does it even matter,
when I leave it all alone,
and watch your slender fingers pattern tabletops
there is little left to do
but wish you were my own.
ShalomTo all those who are alone. To all those who loved and lost. To all those who are the trees, standing decorated and smelling of pine. To those with newpaper blankets and a pillow of stars. To those with more bones than memories and silent smiles in lips sewed together with barbed wire. To those whose mouths taste like cigarette smoke and longing. To those who tangle their hands in long hair and breathe in the scents of napes of necks. To those with violet cream breathing, tangled in faerie lights underneath the lights of french skies. To lovers with lying lips and bruised hips. To the hurting, the crying, the screaming and the damned. To the happy, the joyous, the glorious and the glowing. To the dark, the light, and the grey. To the librarians, to the fighters, to the awake, to the slumbering. To the religious, to the heathens, to the dreamers, to the realists. To the motel mothers, dime store sweethearts, with a penny and a bunch of fives, grinning at a free meal and the clasped hand
Unideen of Abiversity!OK.
For those of you who didn't know, I'm at University! I decided to go a year early; I got the grades, they wanted me, and here I am! Here a year early as well! It's crazy, but it feels like the next part of my life has just taken off and is flying towards the stars!
Definitely the right decision to make, and whilst I miss my friends from home, I know I'll enjoy their company all the more when I'm home for holidays! The same goes for my family - I'm definitely looking forward to some home cooking!
There was period in my life about 6 months ago when things were really black. Events occured around April/May that shook me to my core and left me with little pieces of my heart scattered everywhere. I wanted to thank all the people who've helped me sweep them up and put them back together. The glue was pulled apart by certain individuals, but they could never truly unstick me from those who loved me throughout this period, despite the fact that I was more than a little hollow.
HOLEEEEEEEDAAAY!WOOOOOP! I go on holiday tomorrow, to Mauritius! It should be mega awesome - I'm looking forward to the Sun, and getting my exam results (EEEEK!!!). Needless to say, you can't get t'internet on the beach! I really appreciate all the commments and faves, and I know I'm TERRIBLE at replying, but I promise I will. Eventually.
I will bring you back whatever it is that they have in Mauritius.
Teeeeheee! Love y'all loads - hoping you like the sketchbook stuff!
Lovelovelove and sparkles, angelfaces!!!!!
Kisses and Hugs etc xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
Especial love to Michael, Jenny-Chan and Rozzle, Dante, and everybody!!!!
Unsubscibage sucks...But life is full of sunshine!Hello to all you GORGEOUS SHINY PEOPLE!
I thought I'd write y'all a little journal and update you all on the rainbow goodness which my life seems to be infused with at the moment!! Shiny, happy, marshmallow-flavoured goodness...
My main reason for joy? My exams are very very nearly over!! Unfortunately I'm also back to school the very next day, but I'm salsa-ing on Thursday - wish me luck.
And guys? CRITIQUE THE WORK! I really appreciate all comments you guys make - helps me to see what works, you know?
Love you all LOADS!
(I do, I do, I do!!)
Philosophising.There are two types of people in the world.
Springs and drains.
I'm glad I've found so many of the former on dA.
At the moment I'm in a little boat without sails, and there's a very big wave coming.
I'm very glad I can breathe under water.
I love you all. So much. You make internet fun!
On a somewhat lighter(?) note, read the latest deviation, and let me know if you need something turned inside out and stitched up. At the moment I'm in the kind of mood where I know I'll do my best.
Thank you, everyone.
You mean more to me than you could know.
Enough slushy stuff! Haha, see you later, little chickens.

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

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 -
Icon commissions OPEN
Each one is 6$
animated (head boop) 8$
the limit you can buy is 3 until they are all finish you may buy more
You must always pay before i start.
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
