Already half of Summer is goneI can't believe it. Half of summer is already done. In only 4 more weeks I'll have to go to my new catholic high school. I know I need to go to school but damn I wish sometimes it wasn't a religious one. I mean I never really was a religious person even when I was young. So going to these religious facilities can be a real annoyance. The good thing is I get out at around 2:30PM at that school. So I'll have a whole lot more time than my middle school!
Well wish me luck okay.
This'll be shortI just want to tell you guys my summer is going pretty great. I've been writing a lot more so that is a good thing. I'm even working a bit (slowly) on a novel. It's all for fun of course. Well wish me luck.
This Story is Coming to a Wrap...From the looks of it my final year of middle school is coming to a close. Only 15 more days and I start anew. I am glad that it is happening, growing up and learning has taught me so much that I'm glad for. Even though I can say that everything is perfect in my life but I'm glad for this new road. So thank you to everyone who has and will watch me.
I wanna start commissions for points.I would really like to start commissions for my account because it wouldn't hurt now after being on DeviantArt for a few years. But now the question is bugging me where do I get started. All I can do is literature, poetry and anything that is writing based but I don't know what to price my stuff at and how it all works. Could people give me some advice, Id appreciate it.
Standardized Tests...New York has started the NYC State tests and I've been drained from that and school. So sorry if I am not too active. Hopefully I'll upload something to DeviantArt again.
School, then Spring BreakGuess what, today after I get out of school will be Spring Break. I am so excited for Spring Break because I will have more time to write and publish my art on to DeviantArt. Hopefully I will submit somethings over this break. Now I hope all of you enjoy your Spring as well.
Thank YouI know I have said this before but I just want to say it again. Thank you all for watching me and giving your time to check out my art. I have learned so much from it all and I get really sentimental when I look back at how I started. My first few submissions to this site were horrible but as time went by I kept on improving and look at were I am. I couldn't have improved if it weren't for all the motivation from this site and especially to you my watchers. So to end this I say: Thank You!
Also it's my birthday tomorrow so I might make another journal for tomorrow.
I'm back online...Apparently, my monitor is perfectly fine. I just needed a new VGA cord,so that is great. I will hopefully be updating soon enough. So, see ya.

Protect yourself against fraudAlthough, as an active member of the community, it's nearly impossible to have missed this huge issue, I think it's very important to warn people for this.
What happened is a large case fraud in which apparently one user (under multiple names) scammed several members of DeviantArt community. Leaving some people as much as $3000 in debt!!! Money they, most likely, never see back.
Even though the user is banned by DeviantArt now, there's no reason why it won't happen again.
After all, the problem is caused by a loophole in PayPal's rules. So basically everybody that's using PayPal for its business (and that's a lot of us) is at risk.
People doing commissions
People selling adoptables
To understand where all of this comes from, it's first of all important to know what a PayPal chargeback actually is.
This video offers a proper explanation of what chargeback is, and what it should

Art and not giving upDear, deviantart fellow artists
As artists we are constantly self-aware and seek for improvement and support. But there are times when it feels like everything falls apart, when things go wrong and doubts overwhelm us.
But we have to stay strong and continue.
Here are some of my thoughts about the topic and I hope that they might be helpful.
No one likes to fail. Yet, when it happens, we learn so much. For example – my first “inspiring” journal series where such a failure. But I kept going, as I have always had. As long as I can motivate, help and inspire others, through my journals or art, that’s what keeps me going. Also – things can go wrong all the time – the painting software could crash, ink can get accidentally spilled or It’s possible to unintentionally ruin the painting. It happens. Go through the struggle;
Artists Beware + A Chargeback FraudHello Lovely people,
Today, I stumbled upon several journals by members who all got scammed by one person. Pixlett / ToxicMutagen (who deactivated their accounts today) scammed more than 3,000 USD from more than 20 artists by filling chargebacks just after a while from paying for adopts or commissions. And apparently, they can do the same with points too.

I can't really do anything but to share this with you in hope you won't get scammed by this person.
Here are some journals written about this issue:
And your points aren't safe:
This is a great journal on how to prevent these chargebacks. Check it out:
Feel free to spread this around.

Art / Story / Comic Contest!
Ok, its time for an another contest. It have been some months since the last one, and im sorry for that, that goes to all my followers. Hopefully will I get more active again now. I did think for a long time for the theme for this contest, and I wanted something that's not used to much, but at the same time something everyone can use as an idea for their entry. I hope everyone like it. Its always hard to make a prize list to, that everyone is happy with. Some smaller prizes, and more winners, or a bigger prize, but less winners. Some people thinks "... why should I, I gonna lose anyway.. But wait, as much as 10 entries wins a prize, maybe i should join after all!," and others think "... Only 20$, not worth my time." I'm always trying to get a good combination of b

Glitch's Clothing Design Contest (USD Prizes) Introduction
It was nearing time for the new term to begin, and as always, Glitch wanted to change his outfit...
After all, that one got a little wrecked in the tournament. Oops.
And why not? He would be earning his degree in Elementalism the next term, and who wouldn't want to look absolutely STUNNING for graduation? Surely not him, as looking into obtaining interesting clothing for graduation was a high priority.
This is a drawing contest where you design a new outfit for Glitch, the elementalism student teacher of :iconotherworlde:! He tends to change his outfit often and he's looking for a couple new ones to add to his closet. Therefore, your task -- if you choose to accept it -- is to design a new outfit for Glitch to proudly wear in the next term, when he plans to earn his academy degree.
Simply draw Glitch in an outfit of your design and you
