Kickstarter Update 7: The Call of Cthulhu D20 coveOne of the best parts about writing an art book is getting the chance to explain old stories about the creation process of various pieces. In the seventh update for my art book Kickstarter we share insight into the development of the old Call of Cthulhu D20 cover created by A.S. Koi and myself back in 2002.

Art Book KickstarterI have been working on an art book for nearly three years and we just launched the Kickstarter this morning. I partnered up with Strix Publishing for the book and have been focused on sculpting rewards for it since the first of the year. The book itself is a solid retrospective of my work over the past eighteen years. It has been an amazing project!

Thanks to everyone who supports this project!
Thanks all!I just got home to discover I had received a Daily Deviation for my bronze Carnivean mask! Thanks everyone who commented! I am running out the door to get dinner after a long day of work, so replying will have to wait. Just wanted to say thanks!
Daily Deviation!!!Thanks everyone for all the kind words. A little while ago Vektar text to tell me I had gotten one and I just got home to see for myself.
Watcher is one of my favorite pieces and I was very happy for the opportunity to cast it in bronze. Of course now I want a second for some added symmetry, but there you go.
Unhallowed Metropolis Revised pre ordersFor nearly five years my writing partner Nicole Vega and I have been working Unhallowed Metropolis, the gas mask chic role-playing game of Neo-Victorian horror. After the initial print run of the core book sold out back in 2009 (it was released in 2008), it is finally coming back into print from Atomic Overmind Press and is due for a worldwide release this September.
From our publisher:
"Set two-hundred years after the advent of the zombie Plague, Unhallowed Metropolis, Revised is an apocalyptic Neo-Victorian dystopia written by Jason Soles and Nicole Vega. Inspired by the works of Mary Shelley, Edgar Allen Poe, and Robert Louis Stevenson, and painstakingly researched by the authors, Unhallowed Metropolis provides a rich role-playing experience steeped in alchemy, mad science, and undeath."
The game features truly amazing art, including a full-color cover by photo-sculptor George Higham with int

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!

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!
