Streaming - Oct 20Streaming for a while, drawing/coloring comics, maybe other stuff, depends.
Come gawk if you are interested.
Heading to FurlandiaNext week I'll be down in Furlandia, which is in Portland Oregon on the Memorial day long weekend.
This is the first US con I've been to in three years! If you're gonna be there, stop by and say hi!
Vancoufur 2018 bound!It's that time of year again! I will once again be at Vancoufur 2018 (https://vancoufur.org/) happening March 9-11 at the Executive Airport Plaza hotel in Richmond BC. I will be in the Dealer's Den at table 26 selling prints, buttons, badges, commissions, stickers, yada. If you are going to be in vancouver, come stop by and say hi!
I will also be hosting a couple of panels, one on patreon and the other on drawing transformation art. So if you are interested, come on by! Schedule for Vancoufur is here: https://vancoufur2018.sched.com/
Late Night StreamingDoing some late night streaming while I color the next Shifters page. Come gawk.
Excuse the flood - Comics incomingI've decided to upload all the pages of Shifters Redux (and probably brymstone at some point) to DA, as its not as important as it once was to have them on their own site and shuffle people around. Most of my support these days comes in the form of either private commissions, streaming commissions, or Patreon.
Its more important to have visibility where people live than worry about just having it in one spot. Its more viable now to have your comics wherever people will read them, than drive them to one spot for ad revenue or something. I know a lot of my support has always come from DA watchers, and I hope having all the pages here will help people discover the comics.
But I've got literally hundreds of pages to upload, so I'm sorry in advance about flooding your inboxes.
Be amazing, help a dog get vet careMy Nieces and my sister have been through absolute hell this last year and a half. My sister is now in a messy, complicated, shitty divorce. There's a lot of terrible things that have happened, and unfortunately for legal reasons I can't get into the full extent of this, but suffice to say its bad, and she's in a very difficult position. She's a single mom now, with two kids, working two part-time jobs trying to make ends meet.
And now their family dog, the sweetest, most patient animal I have ever known, has lumps. It has been made clear she needs to go to the vet by a family friend who's a retired vet technician. (i'm guessing mammary tumors from the pictures) This dog is my Nieces' support animal, which has been helping them get through these tough times. Particularly the oldest one, who suffers from anxiety from the trauma of everything that's happened.
But because my sister's ex doesn't support her in any way financially, and has outright refused to help with the dog, my sis
Vancoufur, Badges, updatesA few things to talk about in this journal, so lets get to it.
Vancoufur is happening again! March 9-12 at the Executive Airport Plaza Hotel in Richmond, BC, Canada! (That's basically right next to Vancouver, BC for those who aren't familiar with the West Coast). Che and myself will be there vending our wares, including the brand new printed version of Issue 3 of Shifters! Also got lots of buttons and prints, and at table commissions, and I will also be doing panels on drawing and making comics. More information can be found about Vancoufur here: http://vancoufur.org
To this end I have 2 badge commission types open until tomorrow and I still have slots! If you are interested in a badge, please let me know ASAP.
The specialty ones (Starship Pilot or Bounty hunter) can be ordered here: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSdqoLOyban6c5b1GmIODEK6B0YA05O7k_SA-VXrpX0pfSaUWQ/viewform
For Patreon, what rewards do you value?So, I have a patreon. It's not much right now, but I'd like to rework it so it's got more value for people that support me through it. Its also got to be stuff I can deliver. Also right now it mostly is just around Shifters, but it could possibly support Brymstone too if there was enough interest.
However, I'd like to get an idea of what sort of patreon rewards you, the supporters, feel have value. I don't have core membership anymore, or I'd probably do a poll, so this will have to do.
So, here are my personal observations so far with Patreon:
I've offered things like exclusive livestreams and skype Q&As, and no one attends, so I feel like this has little value on a "patrons only" level currently.
I've got a strong feeling that people are mostly there just for the early updates of the comic/lineart previews. this makes some sense though, people are there for the /comics/ first and foremost.
I don't really get much feedback on the wallpapers or any ot
Streaming 08/20 - Shifters drawingDrawing lineart for shifters. Come and gawk if you want. Normally I'd be doing this for patrons only, but attendance has been sparse since its summer probably and everyone is out camping. Also other people might not even know I have a patreon for Shifters/Brymstone. It's here https://www.patreon.com/shadowsmyst if you want to check it out.
Some stuff is a little messed up though because they magically put my page in a beta for tagging and it screwed up posts. I haven't fixed yet. Doing this art first, then fixing that stuff.
So if you want a free preview of new pages, you can want to come and watch the stream. https://picarto.tv/ShadowsMyst

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!

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
TLECs 2nd Annual Training Show RESULTS UPSo, this is a wee bit late, please ignore the huge time gap. XD
TLEC has decided to once again, open its gates to the public for another large training show. This time, it was to be run a little differently. Last time was stressful, and thats not the point of a training show. With that being said, they set up the new list of classes and decided on a different judging style. This time, there would be playful classes as well, to make it more family oriented.
- No fighting or harassment, we are an equal opportunity stable
- All breeds may enter, but no unnatural powers may be used to get an advantage
- Judging is simple, both effort and rng for performance (guide will be listed below)
- Linearts, Photomanips, Trades, and Commissions may enter (tracing is allowed, at the very least list you have used a ref)
- Old entries may be submitted, but will receive a penalty for not fitting the setting
- No extra
Hi everyone!I usually hate seeing journals like this, but given that I’ve spent 13 years on this site and met thousands of people, knowing there are at least a few of you who would probably want to hear if something was going on, I figure this is the only way to tell you.
For the past several years I’ve been dealing with health issues that I originally attributed to being overweight and/or having a sedentary lifestyle.
A few months ago, I was dealing with a chronic sinus infection and drainage from hell. To offset my symptoms and maybe get some sleep for once, I went to bed with a breathe-right strip on my nose. I woke up with no nose strip to be found and a weird feeling in my throat, like something was there. I went to the emergency room assuming I had swallowed the strip; they looked in my throat and said they didn’t see any plastic strip, but they did see that my throat (epiglottis, vocal cords etc) was terribly swollen, and because I work at an airport, tuberculosis had to b
