Please Donate! + Premium Brush Set incomingHey guys!
I've been working on a big project lately, in particular a premium brush set that will go commercial in the near future. I'm working on a personal website at the moment to launch this premium pack on, and I'm asking you guys to help me with that.

2 Years!Hey guys!
I just found out that I once logged in for the first time on this site on July the 8th, 2009. Since then I filled this page with all my creations and shared them with all you amazing people, for more than 2 years now! More than 45.000 people visited this site, visitors from 159 different countries. My first brush set, Midnight City, got viewed more than 100.000 times (and downloaded on other sites by a lot more). All these figures tell one story: you guys are awesome. All those comments I get every week make me feel relieved and proud, and I can't thank you guys enough for all the support. These past 2 years are just the beginning, as I will continue supplying you guys with awesome resources. I'm also thinking of setting up my own site (help appreciated ), so please stick around!
Again, thanks for being awesome!

My Second Daily Deviation!Hey guys!
As a part of Vector Week on dA, I've been asked to kick off with showcasing one of my brush sets as an ' example of vector work'. All of my brushes have vector shapes in them, but one of them is just filled with them: Infinity Brush Set. I chose to feature this one, because it is in my opinion a good example of using vector shapes alone for a brush set.
Here's the link to my second daily dev:
Big thanks go to:

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!

1 Year!Hey creatives!
My stay at deviantART has lasted one year now! This site has been my main stage for showcasing the work I make, and has connected me to some great people. In total, 30.000 people from over 150 countries have viewed my page! That's awesome! I want to thank all those who support me and like my work. I will be here on dA for a long time to come, and I'm currently thinking of launching my own site/blog, so stay close!
Thanks guys! Off to a new year of creativeness!
