a while ago i reblogged a paypal tutorial with some extra info / warnings in the comments, but the site updated so i figured i’d make my own tutorial with all that extra info added in
- if you’re new to paypal, “Send & Request” is at the top of the page - click that and then select “Pay for goods or services”
- paypal says they will take a cut of the money when it gets to me but it’s only 2.9%, meaning anywhere from a couple of cents to a buck with the rates i usually charge. if you wanna be nice you can add that 2.9% in but i don’t expect people to and i don’t mind if you don’t
- MAKE SURE YOU SELECT “NO ADDRESS NEEDED”. if you select the other options paypal will think i’m shipping you physical goods and expect me to cough up proof that i did - and they’ll flag me if i don’t!
- as mentioned in the photoset, i need to be very careful about what people mention in the payment notes so that paypal doesn’t think i’m up to any fishy business and lock me down for it. all i need is for you to tell me who you are (tumblr / DA / FA account name etc) so i know who’s sending me what. if your blog name is ballslappingsex69.tumblr.com then consider using a nickname.
Always good reminders if you’re unfamiliar with how paypal works, because it’s so damn handy! That said, pretty sure trying to slap on charges to cover that 2.9% afterwards is against paypal policy and as the seller of whatever you’re expected to cover it. Adjust your prices accordingly BEFORE taking commissions/etc to account for it.
I’m continuously frustrated by paypal’s policies and habit of locking accounts over innocuous things, using some nebulous and poorly-defined “moral standards” to basically say “I know person A paid person B some money, but neither one has access to those funds anymore and I guess by default we get to keep it oh gosh golly.” It should never be anybody’s business how I make my money.
But in the meantime, find a workaround.
Guys, there is a much simpler way to do this and that is through INVOICES. With an invoice, you control what is said, what the settings of the transaction is and I don’t believe there is ANY way for a customer to leave a comment (correct me if I’m wrong). You can also send a reminder if the invoice hasn’t been paid.
All that you need to send an invoice is your customer’s email, they don’t even need a Pay Pal account, just a credit card to pay.
Take control, use invoices!
That is very true. Invoices are the best way to do it. I always forget about invoices.

Tuesday Tips - FOLDS
More on folds today. I will eventually cover all types of folds but today is about simple folds on everyday clothes (t-shirt, jeans). The key is to know what to expect and then applying what you know to simplify what you see in front of you (when life drawing). A lot of the folds dynamics on shirts and jeans come from the “memory” of the fabric itself. Denim is thick and is likely to keep some form of wrinkles or folds around certain areas (knees). A lot of zig-zag patterns around the knee is very likely. When pushed down on the feet, the denim fabric will bunch up and combine with the zig-zag pattern. Shirts and t-shirts will react to the twist and pull of the arms and torso. Identify where the pull (or tension) is coming from and work from it. I tend to draw the seams because they clearly express the volumes underneath.

My copies of my first publishes children’s book arrived today!!!! #childrensbook
why is it considered rude to give unwanted critique? As long as it constructive its not harmful at all. Since op did nothing wrong i think its not okay to make him/her apologize, just because he/she is unpleasant to someone.
It’s kind of like when a guy goes up…
Just my personal two cents but…if somebody DOESN’T want a critique on any of their artwork then they probably shouldn’t be making any. (That is, if you are training to be a career artist)
When I went to school, we were taught (and understood) that critique is a vital role in the creative process and essential to an artist’s growth. If you want to be an artist as a career you HAVE to develop a thick skin. It only gets tougher when you enter your art career. Without those training wheels in school one could be in for a shock when they have their first real client and have to deal with revisions, differences of opinion..ext.
That being said, don’t be a jerk just for the sake of being one. Be careful how you word things and try to speak to the person the way you would like to be spoken to. If the other party really doesn’t want to hear it, it’s their loss because they are missing the opportunity to grow.
A couple of times when it is not appropriate to critique… (imo) at least in public…
1) Work that was made for a client (you never know if it was the client’s idea to use that horrible color scheme and the artist begrudgingly had to go along with it for the sake of their job)
2) Works in progress (sometimes) If the idea is barely fleshed then this is a good chance to “catch” mistakes early, before you render a lot. But it’s also hard to judge where they are going if the work is incomplete. So tread carefully.
3) Something deeply personal that they made for their own emotional outlet. In this case, the art only needs to make sense to the creator. Ask permission before voicing any harsh critique.
I was one of the only girl’s in a group of male artists back in school and they were sometimes HARSH. My fiance is an artist and he is HARSH as well with his critiques at times, but as much emotional and prideful pain it has caused, it pushed me to be better. That’s not to say that I would have appreciated a gentler hand at times, but you get my point.
Eplans.com is a website that sells blueprints for houses.
This might not seem that helpful but if you want a characters house you can make selections based on what sort of house you want them to live in.
Then browse through the results and find the house you want. Then you can view the blueprints and have a room layout for that house, which can help with visualising the space they live in.
It makes describing generic homes so much easier.
Gift for an etsy client
do you think that if we get enough people caring about this we can get them to make a game?
I’m not sure I could handle that honestly.
At first i reblogged this because it seemed cool, then I watched the video. Holy fuck. I mean, just hell, in 7 minutes I was so submerged int the story I almost cried. This needs to be something, a game, a movie, something.
That tore my heart out someone make this into something a game a movie ANYTHING
They need to make something with this!
As I’m currently unemployed, though I’m trying very hard to get out of that position, Etsy is currently my only source of income. That and I’m living off my parent’s life insurance money which won’t last forever.
If anyone can help get the word out that will be HUGELY appreciated!
I have different levels listed for rewards.
Thank you all!
