dA@14 and My Favorite ThingsIn honor of deviantART's 14th birthday (yay) I'd like to say that dA has very much so helped me to grow as an artist (along with having inspired the very expensive purchase of a Wacom Intuos4 and Photoshop CC that isn't compatible with Wacom). Anyways, dA has continued to inspire me every day, though more so it is the amazing people here rather than the website itself. You are all amazing.Onward:Its been a while now since I've shown off a few of my favorite things. Many people use my stock and I enjoy each image that is shown to me, but while I save every image I see that uses my stock, very few actually make it into my favorites. I hope that you enjoy this small bit of the collection as much as I do.:bigthum

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.Disclaimer 1: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).Disclaimer 2: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 / ABsSome believe that Paypal does not help in disputes over digital goods but a policy
