I’m making an entire folder for them because WOW
here you go
Yeah sorry I don’t have that many :/
it got better!
I found more the other night
CAUSE I SERIOUSLY NEEDED SOMETHING LIKE THIS WHEN I WAS YOUNGER. I HOPE THIS HELPS YOU GUYS.
Don’t forget that drinking plenty of water and tea, eating a healthy diet and daily exercise will make a HUGE difference with your complexion. Touching your face frequently is also a big no-no. Everyone’s skin is different, so experiment with your own treatment routines and find what best suits you!! I think this is a topic that’s almost taboo to talk about, but everyone has it, so we might as well help each other out with what we’ve found successful, right!?
OK so I never thought my weird knowledge of skincare would come in handy, but here we go. All of this above is really good advice but the actual products you use to wash your face, can actually increase your risk of acne! And what’s worse is that these are typically the products marketed towards people with acne problems!! FOR SHAME! Anyway, steer clear of foaming cleansers. I know they are fun and available everywhere, but they are bad news for your face. Your skin has a slightly acidic layer on top of it with a pH usually around 4 and any product that is foaming is going to be basic (pH greater than 7) and it will strip the acid from your face creating a breeding ground for bacteria.
If you use exfoliators, make sure to avoid ones with the little beads in them. These beads, instead of exfoliating, grab the bacteria and drag it around your face dropping it where ever it pleases and essentially increasing your acne area. Go for exfoliators that are more like a chemical peel (but super super mild) there are a lot out there and it’s like a face mask and they tingle a little and may cause redness, but you use them 1-2 times a week and they are great.
Be gentle to your skin and take care of it. There are a lot of great products at the drugstores/ high street really stepping up their skincare game. CeraVe is a common product in America that has a moisturizer that comes in a BIG tub and costs about $15 that also fights acne (it’s really helping mine). Salicylic acid and Glycolic acid (which is an AHA - Alpha Hydroxy Acid) are commonly found in products to help fight acne as well as Benzoyl Peroxide (proactive). Find one that works best for you and use it. Try to avoid products with mineral water as this creates a film on your face and prevents the good ingredients from penetrating into your skin and helping it out. Another point, no matter what your skin type, MOISTURIZE. I do not care if you leave oil on your pillow every night, slap on some moisturizer. It takes about 20 seconds every night and morning and it helps so much. You can use a lighter one in the day if you wear makeup and don’t want to risk (extra) oiliness.
If you have any more questions, I’ll be happy to help and send you in the direction of videos and blogs that I’ve looked at that have helped me get a handle on this really annoying topic.
I’ve been playing so many RPG-Maker games lately so I’m gonna make a little recommendation posts for my own reference, and for anyone who’s interested.
- Flesh Child - It’s an exploration-based game in the very early stages of development so there’s only two areas accessible, but what’s there is very original and very interesting (and fairly disturbing too).
- Yume Nikki - I know everyone already knows about Yume Nikki, but I’ll list it anyway. It’s huge and it’s beautiful, and it’s inspiring enough to have a whole wiki devoted to the fan-games it’s spawned.
- .flow - A pretty popular Yume Nikki fangame, with much more emphasis on horror than that game. Still focuses on exploring a surreal dreamscape to find effects, but it’s a little more lucid and outwardly scary. There’s a few jump scares, but most of its horror comes from the absence in between. Some great pixel art and character designs too.
- Ib - A story-driven horror adventure about a little girl who gets lost in a museum, where the way you interact with the other characters drastically changes the outcome of the story. Some good puzzles and memorable characters.
- Lisa - A big trigger warning on this one, and the only one I would say I didn’t actually enjoy. Because you aren’t meant to enjoy it. It’s meant to be disturbing and upsetting, and it’s very good at it. It’s not quite horror and there’s no jump scares, but it’ll leave you feeling uneasy for a while.
- The Mirror Lied - An abstract story that leaves so much open to interpretation, I don’t think I can even summarize it. It’s very short though, and it’s worth checking out.
- To the Moon - By the same people as The Mirror Lied, but much more straight-forward and, I think, more enjoyable. Some extremely well-written dialogue makes the characters feel very real, and it even made me cry. It’s the only game here that costs money, but I think it’s worth the price. The link leads to a trailer that summarizes it well.
- Penpals - A cute and short (yet deceptively unsettling at times) game that’s been floating around tumblr. The art is great and it’s full of weird little bits of personal wisdom.
- Schuld - A horror-action game where you start off as a man wandering through a dying world in which human limbs are the only thing of any value, and it only gets weirder from there.
- OFF - The link describes OFF far better than I ever could, but if I could only recommend one game here, it’d be OFF. Probably the largest amount of original content I’ve ever seen in an RPG-Maker game, it’s an actual turn-based RPG full of great surreal art and some kick-ass music.
- Misao - Anime-styled mystery game with cute character designs. If you liked the style of games like Ib you’ll like Misao. While the graphics aren’t all that particularly gory, the game is still pretty disturbing and involves collecting body parts as a main goal. Can also sometimes be a little silly.
- Ao Oni - Another mystery solver but with more of a threat level than Ib or Misao. Involves searching a mansion while also being on alert for a demon who can give chase at any time. Sort of reminds me of Clock Tower.
- Backstage - Horror-action mystery. Story of a man ultimately trying to figure out his reality and his relationships. He was just using the bathroom and then everything got intense. Trigger warning here for some very mature themes in the plot.
- Clock of Atonement - Slight trigger warning- you play as a girl’s stalker who has the opportunity to change what happened. Very very short.
- Mad Father - By the same people who made Misao. A slightly disturbing horror adventure about a little girl trying to help her father. Very nice graphics work, all things considered. Collect all the gems in the game for a special ending.
- Happy Birthday - Fairly short and fairly new, but a fun mystery game nonetheless. A girl is dead at her birthday party and the female detective on the scene must find out what’s going on.
- The Longing Ribbon - Horror adventure game where you explore a mansion as a group of lost teenagers. The frustrating battle system is mediated by cheats, and the dialogue options are ridiculous in a humorous way (“:)” says a giant dragon). There’s one exceedingly trippy scene.
- Miserere - A very moody dream exploration game that’s rather reminiscent of Yume Nikki et al. Best played in the dark, headphones in, etc. “Miserere” is Latin for “have mercy,” fun fact. The mind of a space station’s sole inhabitant.
Middens - A surreal exploration game, almost Yume Nikki-esque, in which you play The Nomad, wandering a patchwork dimension after finding a talking revolver in a puddle of blood. Genie, the revolver, urges you to kill the usually peaceful denizens of The Rift, insisting that it needs a cleansing, a “blood bath”. There’s no right way and no wrong way to play - you can go straight to the boss area when prompted, or explore as much as you please. Nobody is telling you to do anything, whether you listen to Genie or not is entirely up to you. NPC dialogue is often oddly humorous (see: Pimpin’ Ride Guy), but there’s a #suicide tw (also an epilepsy warning) in there, and things do get pretty heavy. Also, there’s absolutely GORGEOUS collage art. Middens is a game you shouldn’t miss.
Gingiva - A game that occurs in the same “world” as Middens. You play as Gingiva, an escaped factory worker in search of her missing head. It keeps Middens’ sense of humor, but it is a more serious game overall. Fair warning, I cried. Also, epilepsy warning, and there is a disturbing image in the background of a couple scenes. There’s also extreme institutionalized misogyny in the situation the protag escapes from and up to the end. Good news: you can straight up murder almost everyone who gives you any nonsense. Gingiva is a lot more linear than Middens, especially during the last segments. Also, more gorgeous collage art.
For future reference.
this is a lot of shit to go through but i’m not gonna pretend like i haven’t thought about it
Hate that horrible silence while you’re working/studying? Perhaps your music is annoying you? Or maybe you just want to relax. Try these to help you fill the silence:
- Coffitivity - Coffee shop environement stimulator

im not even an artist and these prices are hurting my feelings
This is what I have to dig through every time I look for new jobs to apply for.
For non-artists, let’s give you a little perspective.
For me, an illustration takes a bare minimum of 6 hours. Mind you, that’s JUST the drawing part. Not the research, or the communications, or gathering information. Just drawing.
That’s if it’s a simple illustration.
My art deco or more detailed stuff can take 20+ hours each.
Even simple, cartoony things still take at least 3 hours.
Let’s go with the second one. 2 illustrations for $25. Figuring 6 hours each. 12 hours total, for JUST the drawings. That’s approximately $2.08/hour.
Asking these prices is an insult. But what’s even more hurtful is there are people out there that will take these jobs. Which only encourages rates like this to be acceptable. And there are people who will try to say these are just what you have to do to get started.
I believed that. So my first coloring gigs were just $10/page. The day someone offered me $25/page for just flatting work, I realized just how wrong I’d been. I’m still not making the rates I’d like, but now I refuse anything below $25/page. Because there is value in my time.
In any standardized industry, even ones that pay piece rate over hourly, these numbers are criminal.
Do your fellow artists a favor. Never accept jobs like these. There are others that pay legitimate rates. Or at least closer to legitimate.
Such baby bullshit. Don’t even get out of bed for these rates.
If you are an artist who wants to make money off their art, I highly suggest you buy The Graphic Artist’s Guild Handbook. It goes in depth about copyright issues and even contains contract and model release templates. The 2013 book *I believe* states the average professional charges $72 an hour. This article calculated that to make a 40k annual salary you would need to charge about $60 per hour.
After graduating from Art Center in 2012, I think I asked for somewhere between $35-45 an hour and got laughed at by multiple big name clients, which was infuriating, sadly expected, and terrifying with over $100K worth of student loans staring me in the face. If they tell you it will be “great exposure” that’s a red flag. Ask yourself how their exposure can compare to your Tumblr, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, Flickr and Facebook pages combined?
And when you do get a decent paying gig, PROTECT YOURSELF. You have the right to negotiate and revise a contract. Do not start a job until you have a contract signed. If they don’t provide you with one, MAKE ONE. And make sure you have your bases covered. You can specify in a contract that maybe two revisions are included in your cost, and if they ask you to revise the piece more than twice, they will have to pay extra. In terms of payment schedule, I usually do the 50/50 Method (50% before, 50% after) or the 3/3/3 Method (1/3 before, 1/3 in the middle, 1/3 after all work has been received). Both of those are pretty standard in the industry, as they guarantee you will get compensated for your time, even if the job goes bad.
Remember you have a skill, and you have spent time honing that skill and you deserve to be adequately paid for that time and effort. You will have clients dismiss you because, honest to God they think, “Well, I could do that if I wanted. Hell, my five year old does it now.” No they can’t, because they didn’t, they don’t, they won’t and they probably never will. And good luck hiring a five year old. They can’t keep a fucking deadline.
And in a last ditch effort they’ll say, “But that drawing only took you an hour!” Son, that drawing took me 20. fucking. years.
10 Dollars for 1 minute of animation. Oh my god my heart. It took my team 6 months and a team of 12 to make a 4 minute short.
I second this book! I’ve had it for several years now, and it’s been a HUGE help in my work as a freelance artist. It gives great advice on what to charge for different areas of art!
