Donate to Ko-fi, help my mom's dogSo my mom's dog got suddenly sick today. We're not sure what the cause is (plus I'm all alone right now, the rest of the family rushed off to the vet before I could get all the details), but we're pretty sure it's something called nystagmus. He's dizzy, and his eyes keeping moving back and forth.
So please, we would all really appreciate it if you could chip in. Here's the link to my Ko-fi page: http://ko-fi.com/tymime
UPDATE: Just got an update over the phone, and apparently it's vertigo. Still could use donations, though- an emergency checkup is expensive!
Photoshop brush recommendationsNow that we have a tablet, I've been poking around deviantArt for free(!) brushes to use in Photoshop, and I've discovered some really good ones. I thought it'd help if I shared the ones I've found, and maybe give a boost to the artists who made 'em too.
Photoshop CS1-CC Pencil Brushes Tool Presets by BerolEagle
Looks very much like our own pencils, great for touching up scans.

WE FINALLY HAVE A TABLETAfter literally over ten years of saving up money (plus two or three years of hoarding Amazon gift cards), we finally had enough to buy a Wacom Cintiq. Being able to draw directly onto the computer has been a long-time dream of ours, and finally, finally we’re able to do it.
No compromises by buying an iPad and hoping that a third-party app and a third-party stylus would do the trick. (It didn’t- there was no pressure sensitivity and the lag was terrible. The iPad eventually locked up and I never made a backup.)
No buying a used Cintiq off eBay and finding that the darned screen- the whole point of getting a Cintiq- doesn’t work. (It must have been a very old model anyway, it was clunky and looked and felt like a Windows 98 computer. It didn’t have pressure sensitivity either.)
Up until a week ago, I was sure we were going to get a new iPad Pro with an Apple Pencil, since Cintiqs were and are stupidly expen
Patreon?Would anybody be interested in supporting me on Patreon or Ko-Fi? I haven’t actually had a steady income at any point in my life, and I can’t seem to get any kind of art job despite any work I show in my portfolios.
My current setup would only allow me to do pencil drawings for “rewards” or whatever I wind up doing. (I’ve mentioned it before, but I have no tablet of any kind.) That is, if I want to get them out in any sort of reasonable time, since anything more elaborate would take too long (cleaning eraser marks and other smudges is more time-consuming than you’d think). I promise I’ll NEVER make it a paywall.
Anyway, I just added a link on my Tumblr* about commission prices to give you an idea of what I’m asking for/capable of. If you don’t wanna do Patreon, just a commission is good too. I really could use the work.

S'more musicMy own spin on the "chillwave" and "downtempo" genres, which I made in less than a day, deconstructing its elements into something else. (It actually took longer to make the video.)
So throw together a bunch of major-seventh chords mostly in Lydian mode, an accidental polychord, and away you go.

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!
Regular Payments / ABs
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!
You can also scroll to the bottom for links to other tut
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 -
