Banged Out About 4So it looks like my skill is back up to where it was....but my subject matter that I really want to draw has...changed slightly, let me say. Menopause is demanding it. *wiggles eyebrows*
I drew 4 large sketches today, only one of which I decided to share. Since its on 17" bristol, I had to splice it together which looks alriiiiight...but not perfect.
Nevermind...Looks like they got the ornaments, too. They just mentioned the mugs in the notice. Ah well, thought it was fine what with all the non-official 'Michigan" merchandise.
Devious Journal EntryLooks like advertising a little via Tumblr, Google+, and Pinterest has started paying off. Would like to also use Instagram but I'm on PC and its kind of a proprietary bitch about it. I got a couple Zazzle sales today, of designs I've never had any sales on before, aaaand a copyright strike when they reviewed the Wolverine Cheerleader mug. It is, of course, because she's similar to a Michigan Wolverines cheerleader of course, minus the letters. They haven't picked up on the ornaments yet, tho.
POD SitesSo Zazzle's last crash that temporarily wiped out a huge chunk of my products (at least those which weren't wiped out by previous updates that I didn't notice until recently) has made me start considering, yet again, other POD sites. I think I might take the plunge and go with making a store on Etsy and sell products from several linkable POD sites, like Printful. I'll keep Redbubble, tho - I've gotten the most sales from them, plus they allow my pop art and cater to geeks that are my primary audience.
Does anyone have any suggestions?
I'm also TRYING to get an Instagram account going, but I need an Android emulator to get the app working on my PC, and the site wouldn't even just plain let me log in today. Argh.
Journal, JournalI decided to go with Dreamwidth, and thus did not lose any of my old posts. Anyway, I'm there under my good ol' furry name Zhora.
Well, Shit...Looks like I'll be finding another platform for sharing my art. I've seen deals like the Wix deal before, and they ALWAYS make promises about things not changing, that they'll leave the purchased site alone but just update software, and that the same protections will remain...and they all inevitably turn out to be lies. Especially since Wix has publically stated they're going to 'open up the repository of art...' to Wix users to just take for their own uses.
And dA so far is not answering questions adequately, IMO, when they actually answer at all. Hopefully they will say something tomorrow.
Time to fire up the Instagram account I made, I guess, and transfer the furry art all to FurAffinity finally...
Zazzle 'bout Gave Me a Heart Attack Last Night!I've been putting Rainbow Gator on products for the last few days, and last night I got a copyright strike and product removed!
So immediately I emailed back and asked what the actual problem is since its clearly my own design. Closest I could come was that maybe there was a problem with the name being almost the same as someone else's design name.
Turns out...it was more silly than that. The product was a 'thermal tumbler', which most people would know as a thermos...but Thermos doesn't like it when people use that in descriptions, or, as I had done, AS A TAG. Just an effing common word tag that allows people to find your product.
I don't know if I'm going to replace the product, but at least now I'm a bit wiser about my tags.
Low-key ChristmasSo so far this holiday season is very low-key for me. Which is good because I'm battling some throat issues. No idea what, 'cause I haven't been to the VA recently, but I'm using all the homeopathic and regular over the counter stuff I have, which is working.
I'm sure I've been annoying the neighbors with my foghorn cough, which has finally subsided except when I'm laying down, so I've had some late nights just because of that. Been watching a lot of movies and Xmas specials on YouTube as a result.
I'd advise against searching for Jack Frost on YT, tho, unless you don't mind wading through tons of (Rise of the Guardians) Jack Frost and Elsa soft to hardcore porn. I came across that while looking for the Rankin/Bass Jack Frost. Don't get me wrong, I like RotG and the pairing TOTALLY makes sense...I just got a little tired of wading though 13 pages of it before even getting to 1 R/B video.
And of course I ended up watching RotG on YT last night, too. I

Chiye [drawing references]
My mascot oc!
Means she pretty much fits to many themes and that I don't mind you drawing her different from the references ;3
• Name: Chiye
• Age: 17
• Height: 160 cm
• Details: Blue eyes, pink hair and fluffy pink tail
Very happy and positive, loves to talk with people, and is very expressive, but can be super lazy when sad or bored.
Despite being very positive, she is a lazy bun, so if you need help, she will cheer you up, but helping? Oh dear, too much muscles to move!
• Species: she is part dog, part cat and of course, part human.
Stop hating your art and yourselfSo this is something that I've been bottling up for a while and I want to address it. Now, before you harp on me, I am guilty of this from time to time as well. However I want to open up the floor to this conversation.
I try to stay kind and gentle in my conversations with people. However for this, forgive my blunt tone. I am giving people advice based on what worked for me and other professionals I've talked to. This advice is for ANYONE, but mostly visual mediums like drawing, paints, etc. Though if you stretch your mind a bit, it could apply to any medium.
Also I KNOW not everyone wants to be a pro. This is about being a pro. It's about bettering your art. I have people always asking me about getting better and improving, and this is my advice to you all.
A. Your art does NOT suck.
For the love of the planet, PLEASE stop saying this. Your art may not be at the same level as someone else, maybe your family member, your friends, classmates or id

Find Your Homestuck Troll Blood Color!Yeah so here is how it works! You need to figure out your sun sign, and your moon sign. There is a calculator similar to this one out there, but it doesn't take in account jade bloods or mutants. This also doesn't require rounding. Hussie has already stated that the only troll blood colors that exist are the ones we have seen in the comic + lime. I also had to take in account that the jade blood color is rare, but the odds of getting jade with the distribution unadjusted are extremely high, so I figured out a way to make it work so it makes sense. I also took in account that fuchsia blood is extremely rare, and so is being mutant. The distribution that I am working with is a pyramid. I'll explain the breakdown at the end.
