A probable solution to commission chargebacks.
Artists who create commissions know one caveat with accepting PayPal: their Seller Protection doesn't cover services, so they can and will be SOL if the buyer decides to dispute the transaction. While Buyer Protection doesn't cover services either, PayPal is notorious for ruling in the favor of the buyer, so the seller needs to look into other ways of protecting themselves. Which leads to our discussion here, of how we can leverage Seller Protection to ensure scamming buyers can't run off with the money after the service is completed -- by converting your commission service into a tangible product.

Using HTML on deviantART
Hello! Hello and welcome to my little html tutorial. I've been working with html codes for a couple of years and I'm going to teach you what I know about using some basic html on deviantART. This won't make you a html expert or something and I'm not an expert myself but it will give just enough knowledge to make your journals, comments, news articles and other neat and lovely looking. :) deviantART actually has FAQs about html but I still wanted to do this because they look a bit unorganized, in my opinion. Also, why would you want to look for those FAQs when you can just open this news article where you have everything in one place? :dummy
Tracing IS legal. Sort of.
Don't get your panties in a knot. We all hear the tooting of angry horns around here about the recent "defining" of traced artwork on dA. Some of you reading this right now are probably groaning in your chair about how much this is "blasphemy" and "contradictory to the spirit of artwork and community" and blah blah blah. fourteenthstar (https://www.deviantart.com/fourteenthstar) mentioned that they have a lawyer. A very good lawyer. And that this lawyer had gone over, in depth, the issue of tracing and told them that it was perfectly legal for users to upload traced artwork to dA. So I did some sleuthing of my own on copyright laws, their protections, and violations to find out what was

How long have you been on DeviantArt?
Almost 6 years!

What does your username mean?
It means there is some smart-ass using my intended nickname for an abandoned, ghost account. >:O

Describe yourself in three words.
Procrastination. Insatisfaction. Honesty.

Are you left or right handed?
Sinister!

What was your first deviation?
My avatar in full-res. It was merely a placeholder but I never got around to change it to something else. Now I'm kinda attached.

What is your favourite type of art to create?
All of them. And that's basically my problem!

If you could instantly master a different art style, what would it be?
Probably the style of Kim Jung Gi. That is some insane skill and would allow me to learn any other stuff without obstacles.

What was your first favourite?
kinpatsuyasha.deviantart.com/a…

What type of art do you tend to favourite the most?
Regarding themes, if it's cute and/or gorey, I'm game!
Regarding skills, I love good use of colors and remarkable silhouettes. Strongest points in my book!

Who is your all-time favourite deviant artist?
I have always been really, really bad at picking favorites...
But I miss hearing from sachsen, does that count?

If you could meet anyone on DeviantArt in person, who would it be?
The guy who registered under "Marcotonio". To punch him in the face.

How has a fellow deviant impacted your life?
Well... they haven't. Some of the ones who did are around here, but I met them elsewhere. Feel free to impact me, though!

What are your preferred tools to create art?
Paint Tool SAI + Tablet. I just love how smooth it is with little to no effort. I've been testing Photoshop for ages and it can't beat SAI's simplicity in a lot of cases.
But once my art gets more complex, I feel I'll have to Photoshop a lot...

What is the most inspirational place for you to create art?
If I had any, I'd be there right now! I would live there! And lick its walls every day! And have a little Chihuahua named Pedro to keep guard.

What is your favourite DeviantArt memory?
One time there was this girl who deleted all of her stuff from dA, including a piece I had favorited.
Some months later she made a journal about her Hard Drive failing or something and losing all the work because it wasn't backed-up at dA anymore.
Ha-ha!
