Attempting a ComebackI'm gonna make an attempt at being more active here on dA, starting with uploading a couple years' worth of art over the next few days/weeks/months/whatever. I'll try to do one a day and not dump it all at once. I'll also bring some older art out of storage.
Tumblr is still going to be my main place but I've gotten unsatisfied with how it works for displaying art. TBH I kinda left dA because I was feeling lousy as an artist after graduating uni and other stuff but I've been feeling better about it lately. Quitting my deli job after almost 8 years and going back to Hal-Con as a vendor helped a lot. Sooo maybe being able to see everything in a gallery will help too.
Crowbar's MOVIN' OUT!so yeah, my cousin and I have been planning to move out together sometime this summer/fall, and I found a listing on kijiji that didn't really have much on it but was in a super ideal location. less than a week later and it's OURS! ... to rent but w/e. The place is seriously way awesomer than anything else my cousin and I would likely be able to get.
The owner is super nice and I have a feeling her family would get along well with ours if they ever met.
The house is literally right behind our workplace, so we don't need to worry about transportation or awkward bus schedules. There's also a medical clinic, dollar store, bank, and bus routes nearby.
It's a 3-bedroom duplex. My cousin, and her boyfriend once he moves in, get the master bedroom and I get the two smaller ones. One of mine will be a studio!
The living room is spacious and there's a good sized kitchen with fridge, stove, and DISHWASHER! Also a really huge washer and dryer.
The owner is total

taggedGot tagged by Charanty to post five facts about myself, plus answers questions from her. I ain't gonna tag anyone so not bothering with rules.
1. this sunday I will have my BFA with a major in fine arts and minor in art history. o no
2. I have a couple hundred dollars worth of brushes that are missing somewhere inside the house. u_u
3. I really fucking love smokey chipolte BBQ doritoes
4. I can't smell most things when I'm at work. I had a couple freak days where I could smell everything, and it was disgusting. I was glad on the third day that I had lost my sense of smell again. >_>
5. I compulsively keep my nails clipped super short. If any white grows out at all it gets really distracting, and if I can't find a pair of nail clippers I go kinda batty.
1. Mars, Io or Venus?
Mars, most habitable of the lot.
2. What's your least favourite colour?
pukey pastelly colours
3. Is there a book you'd gladly burn with napalm?
I would not wish such a fate on any
Anyone use fountain pens?I'm trying to get used to using them and may start inking MW round with them instead of microns, but I just at least one giant gob of ink on every single drawing I've done before. Well, except one, but then I accidentally spilled a drop on it anywho. BUT YEAH does anyone have any advice for reducing ink blobs? Or any other advice with using them, really.
Not Streaming!I can stream digital arts now, like all the cool kids! :iconkermityayplz:
anywho, go here http://www.livestream.com/ctk_hullo
I'll be working on pages for MW round 1!

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 -

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
