I'll be livestreaming on Picarto.tv tonight at 10:15 PM CST! Feel free to pop in and watch. ^^
Update: Eeeeeeep. Running late tonight! Streaming now!>.<
- Listening to: Nothing.
Where does this ocean go?In light of the fact that it's been nearly a year since I posted anything here, I figured I should pop in and say... something.
Last week, I did a sketch. It's not posted, and probably won't be -- just a doodle for a character who's been bopping around in my head for a bit. That sketch is the first art I've done in... months. Literal months. I don't remember the last thing I worked on before it, but it's safe to say I haven't drawn anything in months. I haven't done anything productive or creative, really. I haven't had the desire, or... really, the ability to do anything I love. No art, no voicebank work.
Basically, the last several months have been pretty bad in my house. Everyone's okay -- no one died, no one's gone to jail, I'm fine, everyone I love is okay -- but, it's been a really, really hard time, on everyone I live with, and stress of the situation basically wiped me out creatively. I should have posted something indicating I'm on hiatus months ago, but I couldn't
Building Cross-Compatible Voicebanks with MacI originally wrote this as a help topic for an UTAU forum, then decided to make it available elsewhere.
When I first started using UTAU-Synth, there really wasn't a lot out there when it came to help resources for Mac users. More to the point, there weren't many that addressed the hiccups and quirks specific to UTAU-Synth. So, being a Mac user, I decided to try and amend that a bit.
This resource is primarily written for people using Mac/UTAU-Synth, specifically users who want to be sure that the voicebanks they're making are cross-compatible with PC-based UTAU. This resource is also here to answer questions that PC users have about Mac-built UTAU voicebanks, and UTAU-Synth, since they may not be familiar with the program (or the differences between UTAU and UTAU-Synth) for obvious reasons. I'm not an expert by any means, but I hope that others will find this collection of notes and such to be helpful.
About 90% of this article was originally written as a response to a thread abo
Need a web host?Here's the deal. I’ve had my domain (amazoness.org) for over 10 years. During that time, I’ve done very little with the absurd amount of space, bandwidth and resources I have at my disposal, and that’s not likely to change anytime soon. So, I’ve decided to test the waters and see if anyone would be interested in some low-cost, ad-free web hosting.
Basically, I’d be offering a nice chunk of space, bandwidth, email, and access to all the fun stuff that Softaculous has to offer (WordPress, the ability to host image galleries, wikis, e-commerce stuff, etc.) for a small fee. Pricing would basically depend on disk space allotment and bandwidth needs. Right now, my initial thought is something like $2.50 a month. The only reason pricing would ever change or increase would be if I had to adjust the domain’s hosting package to accommodate disk space and bandwidth needs.
For the curious, I've been using AMS Computer Services (formerly Below10Host) for the enti
Livestreaming on Picarto.tv!I'll be streaming for about an hour or two on my channel at Picarto.tv, starting now! Feel free to drop by and see what I'm working on! ^^
*poof*Sorry I haven’t been super active lately! I recently went back to work (and also landed a new part-time job,) so I’ve been pretty distracted as of late. I’m hoping I’ll have more time for art next week, if not this week.
Let's Sketch Live!I now have a channel on Picarto.tv, which I'll be using to livestream while I draw. Woo!
I don't have a set schedule quite yet, but I'm planning on livestreaming regularly, at least once or twice a week in the evenings while I work on a particular art project. Currently, it's turning this sketch of Maki into a large, full-color piece.
If you'd like to watch, you can check me out here: picarto.tv/mochamoon.
Hiatus Update: Back now.Aaaand I'm back, sooner than I initially expected. Whee.
I'm taking a break from stuff for awhile. If you need something leave a note -- I'll pop in to check messages, but I'm done uploading things and working on art for awhile.
Internet IssuesJust so y'all know, I've been having some internet connection issues for a couple of weeks. I'm limited to my phone (and it's slow internet hotspot abilities) at the moment, so if I don't respond right away to messages or notes, that would be why. ^^ Here's hoping my internet issues will get resolved soon.
In Which a Commission Noob Mumbles About PointsI keep going back and forth on this idea of using DeviantArt's Commissions platform. On one hand, I suspect it'd probably make it a bit easier for people who are interested in commissioning art from me to do so -- one less hoop to jump through. On the other hand, I'm… not exactly enthusiastic with the way DA's Commissions system is set up.
Most of the work I do (with the exception of sketches) is generally going to take longer than 14 days, which is how long DA holds transactions in review before they can be withdrawn. I'm all for receiving a deposit before I've started working -- that shows that the commissioner is actually serious about the work, and can act as a kill fee, so that I get some compensation for the time I spent working on a project in the event that the commissioner decides to cancel. However, I'm personally not super comfortable with the idea of someone paying me up front for work I haven't yet completed. (Let me be very clear: that's not a knock at people w

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!

Printed Minky Reviewedit to add: yes the printed minky is washable! I didn't wash mine, but according to spoonflower "Wash separately in cool or warm water using a gentle machine cycle. Machine dry using a low temperature or permanent press setting and remove promptly to avoid wrinkles." Although please don't machine wash a plush, ahah. Just the fabric.
So I recently got the chance to play with printed minky! Here's a sort of review about it
Bought from: spoonflower.com
Price: $28/yrd. Very expensive, but for a very versatile product of this quality it's definitely justified.
Shipping: Only $6 to Canada, with tracking, took about a week and a half to arrive once shipped, no duties. A+
File prep: spoonflower has very simple requirements that are easy to follow. I scanned my pattern pieces, cleaned them up and colored them, then I copied them into a file that was set to spoonflower's specifications (150dpi, set to the width of minky. I added length as I needed it). To make sure my pieces
