hello waterfy'all

sorry for the continued absence, you know how school and work get esp on top of the whole pandemic thing :v

but i have come online today to bring you happy news! I got a capture card this weekend and I'm going to start trying to stream regularly ^^

this afternoon I'll be doing my first ever gaming stream!! I'm starting with the spyro reignited trilogy

sundays are the only days i am for sure free so the plan is to do game streams sundays and find other times throughout the week for possible art streams

(also imma start posting the streams on yt so during the stream I'll be asking what format ppl prefer for that)

ok so i'm finally getting around to remaking and expanding my pride merms set, but i have a question for yall before i go any further than sketching

using the very first one i made as an example:

do you prefer clean and centered? (how i did the rest of the previous ones)

or with the name on it? (which makes it uncentered, but still is balanced)

(ignore the shading differences these were made at different times in the process)

also would u prefer handwriting (which will be a bit nicer than this one) or should i try playing with fonts for it??

question about selling on etsy:

ive read that people prefer cute and unique packaging, so im wondering if it's better to include some of the packaging in the photos or keep it a complete surprise and try to rely on word-of-mouth abt the personalized packaging??

I'm bored and curious tell me your most hated fabric(s)

my top three are denim, corduroy, and that nasty fake-silk stuff that's just pure polyester

opportunity

fake fur is my #1 worst texture-feel, but i cant stand any "snotty" fabrics or fabrics with scratchy stuff like sequins or tinsel either :v

so i just uhhh...

lost all my old art...


i put it on a flashdrive so i could reset my laptop a bit ago and hadn't transfered anything except this year's folder over to my new computer yet

as i was transfering the rest over my headphone cord bumped the flashdrive and pulled it out, corrupting the whole thing 🙃

so I no longer have access to any old art that i didn't upload online or only got submited on now-deleted accounts, which is quite a lot :/

hope I don't actually end up needing any of those files....

and any oc concepts i had in there saved for later are gone forever too...

the fact that all this art dissapeared in an instant from one little nudge is actually more devastating than when I lost that physical sketchbook by dropping it in the river. this is literal *years* of artwork i'll never see again, i've been trying to keep most of my art stuff since like 2015/2016

@UnidentifiedBlog thanks for the suggestion but the way it corrupted the data was like mixing up the characters for weird symbols and not having it not accessable like what it was talking abt in that guide

i did the properties>check thing it suggested just to see if it would recover anything and it... broke it more?? it went from looking like all the files were there but inaccesable to a single 0 byte nonsense file so yeah, now the data is even more gone than before

ok so random thought

tw: transphobia and use of a generalized "you"


I never understood the requirement for some transition things to "live as your gender" for x amount of time like??

i have been living as my gender for my entire life already, I just didn't know how to express it to others at first

is it because you want me to face direct transphobia for a while before making any decisions? are you hoping that will change my mind??

also if it's for surgery or smtn, do you know how hard it is to "live as your gender" when you are constantly outwardly viewed as your agab? I can't come out to every stranger that ever looks at me!

....

rly hoping i don't end up having to face smtn like this rule too heavily during my transition bc ugh it's already hard enough as it is

hello waterfyall! sorry for the absence

we found out the back wall of my room was badly made and water-damaged so I had to work every day this week so my dad had time to fix it (he also installed a window so i have natural light now yay)

we put an ac unit in the window too so i didnt sleep well bc new noises

so today im taking a recovery day, and ive got work tomorrow

but im considering doing a stream on sunday? i i got my new computer set up and id like to mess around with learning clip studio and trying out some games on it to see how it performs

if i do stream itll start maybe 3 or 4 pm central US time

ik im in a weird timezone for a lot of you, but i have to work monday so i cant stay up late this time ^^

the fact that im still deliberating on going back to college this semester and classes start in less than a month 🤔


if i dont go i lose my state funding and have to start paying back student loans, but if i do?? i have the chance of making friends ig but the risk of getting sick is higher sooo...

seeing whatever being discussed on twitter and how ppl seem to be acting lately im big time considering just dropping out of college tbh. i cant learn well in online environments and it seems there's a good chance in-person classes wont be safe esp by next month

but dropping out means i have to start paying back student loans (or at least my dad does bc he used most of the money on the mortgage) and idk if the store is going well enough yet to support that. i dont even know who to talk to abt setting up payments

im glad im not in a big populated state but i still live p close to the capital city of mine and i certainly cant afford to not work

I'll discuss stuff with my dad after the 4th rush and probably focus on getting a new computer and commissions/streaming to maybe make some extra money?
