*EDIT: Happy end of September! New stuff is marked with New! 
Hey guys! So on quite the regular basis, I have people, watchers or random strangers, come to me asking for advice on their art. No big deal, I do present myself as a teacher of sorts (though bear in mind, I'm still learning too!), but unfortunately, I just don't have the time to go through each one and dive deep into

Profile Presentation: Tips and Tricks
Your profile page can say quite a bit about what kind of person you are, and having a well-designed profile page will help ensure that your visitors leave with a good impression of you and your work. And if you do a remarkably fabulous job at designing your profile, people will not only be impressed, but they will also keep coming back to take another look. In this article, I will go over some useful tips and tricks for making your profile look professional but also personalized! :heart:
This article is mostly directed towards Premium Members, but non-Premium members can still use some of these concepts to personalize their page.
:note: In addition, for those who are new to profile decoration, I highly suggest reading my Decorating Your Profile tutorial first, as it goes over important basics of profile decoration.

TUtN Update

Mon Oct 23, 2017, 12:01 AM
Hello lovely readers and watchers,

First of all, YES I am still working on the next chapter of To Unravel the Night! These past few weeks have been...rough. Not because anything particularly bad has happened, but because I'm experiencing a relapse of depression. This last week especially was difficult...I had a couple of the worst episodes I've experienced in a long time. I'm doing better right now and I'm getting the help I need - first appointment in that series is later this week.

So, the next chapter is delayed, mostly due to mental health. The other reason is a much more pleasant one: with the better days I've had, I've been working on the overall plot, figuring out where everything is going, fleshing out some ideas, planning for things to come...it's something I should've done a while ago,  back when I first took the story into AU territory. Oh well - doing it now, and I'm eternally grateful for all of you who've stuck with the story this long and given me so much encouragement to continue! You make me want to be a better writer and live up to your expectations.

I got a good amount of both plotting AND writing done today, so I'm hoping to have Chapter 96 out within the next week. Thank you for your patience, and wish me luck as I get myself back to a more balanced state overall.

Final note: if you think you're dealing with depression, or something like it...don't hesitate to get help, be it a therapist, a doctor, a religious or non-religious counselor...One of the worst parts of depression is the shame and guilt over not being able to deal with it yourself, but if you don't get help or you keep trying to hide it, it becomes overwhelming. I'll admit: I've been dealing with Clinical/Major Depression for well over a decade, and I STILL have to be reminded that it's not a logical thing, that it's not something to be ashamed of, that it DOES have medical roots and medical consequences if I don't address it. So...don't hesitate. Don't procrastinate because you think you just need to "tough it out" until it passes. Let yourself get help.

So I started working on an in-depth profile for Kaiya...then realized that any time I hit "backspace" Stash was deleting ENTIRE SECTIONS of the thing. WTF?!
And now that I said that chapter is almost done...well, I'm trying to figure out the whole plot right now, and it's taking up what creative space my brain currently has. Next chapter is going to take a little more time, but I think the result will be better for it - for one, I'll actually know what's going on :P
Sooo it's Friday the 13th. Apparently there was a flight from Copenhagen to Helsinki today. Flight #666 to HEL.

Glad to hear that! x3
This was a commission so I would feel bad to make someone pay and others use it for free.
But I set down the download price, so if you want you can use it. ^-^
