Adjusting my DA participationI have moved most of my images for sale to www.SaatchiArt.com/RBCD While I enjoy DA very much and have participated, I have not had a return on investment. I will stay on for the other artists I have come to appreciate here, the ability to print magnets, etc. I would also like to keep engaged with this site in case they ever come up with a formula to reimburse artists. One idea that I find compelling is to charge for likes. For a while I have been paying artist with DA bucks each time I liked one of their images. I think this should be part of the process when a person clicks on likes an image then a screen pops up asking what the collector wishes to donate to the artist, or accesses a minimum charge. People who collect images can then contribute to the artist's effort. Collectors could even earn a new type of badge... I recommend that DA do something like this and make the DA Bucks conve
December Month of DollsHello, well this doll thing is running full tilt. I have work available at D&H in LA, UU Art Guild in San Diego, Downtown San Diego Bar Basic Pop-Up show hosted by Thumbprint Gallery, and a fun raiser of sorts for Art on 30th in San Diego. Contact me if you would like to go to any of these places and chat. Here is some of the recent work:
and some of my forites by other artists on DA:

Dolls and GMAGSo the doll thing is kinda fun and I had a good time at GMAG;
here is a few of my favorites from around DA
Stepping Forward!I have the studio, I have the time, you will get the art!
I noticed other people are already working...
Sooo, whats happening with ChauDavisAlright, ya know I have stopped selling paint and am onto the art kick full time. Part of this is fixing up the house/studio and making it livable in winter and summer so that Maria, I and Lora can all live and work year round. Almost there! In a little bit Maria and I will be taking our big vacation and seeing wonderful things up North. I had hoped to slip one more show in but ran into a glitch so had to back out (it was graceful with no damage done on either side). I have developed deep affection for Thumbprint and hope to work with them when I get back. I would like to have regular drawing/photo sessions at my house. Working with having an artist (who likes their privacy) become a sort of guest artist at the house. Should have more work in August and if you want to visit there is always Taco and Tequila Tuesdays... Here are some of my current Fave's by other artists on DA...
A few pictures from Jazz Jam at Panama 66This is happening every Wed night at Panama 66 in Balboa Park, San Diego. These artists are all painting the musicians jamming on stage (occasionally pulling other musicians out of the crowd). Here is the Facebook link to the event Carlos Castellanos Wed Night Jam Session at Panama 66. Brian Meyer is promoting the visual art side...
A few ones I like from other artist on DA...
Dragon Ball Z Tribute Show (Cosplay Encouraged)Thumbprint Gallery is hosting a Dragonball Z art event at Bar Basic in San Diego 1/26/2016, I created 3 little acrylics taken from the opening sequence of season 1. Drop by, here are some of the details:
Here are few others I found on DA:
That was interesting...I was able to show it all in front of the T bar in Hillcrest, still processing the experience. Stayed to 10:30, True stayed longer, he is a champion. I think that bargain bins are called for. I could do an extension of the trash series and have the 99 cent bin. A more compelling interactive piece is needed. Protection from the evening damp would be good. Art cards need to be framed or available for swapping. Couple of cool interactions, one couple came by twice... One did a quick scan and told the other 'you are not interested in any of this.' The other starts looking immediately and I tell her 'you can any one piece free. She took a good one I had created for the postcard show. Very satisfying for both of us. Another person apologized extensively for bargaining me down to 20.00 dollars for a piece she loved, felt she was being insulting...didn't buy the piece. I tried to console her. Try again next Thursday, see what ha

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

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!
