[Revised] How to Protect Yourself Against FraudThis Journal is currently Under Revision.
Points have been brought to my attention that have caused me to need to revise this journal.
I am still digging around on my free time to see if I can find a way around this. I will update daily.
Please note that this is specifically for Artists who use Paypal to sell digital goods.
OK, so there has been many artists being scammed lately through Paypal with large chargebacks. If you have been hit by a chargeback recently please feel free to note me and I will try my best to help you out.
The rest of this journal is information on how to better protect yourself against scams, fraud, and/or chargebacks.
What is a Chargeback, and How do I protect myself from one?
So first we need to understand what a Chargeback is.
By filing a chargeback, buyers ask their credit card issuer to reverse an approved transaction.
Common reasons for char
Draw whatever the hell you want.Alright...
I'm pretty sure this is going to be a rant (not that I have ever posted those before ) but bear with me because I just... I got to say something about this subject.
"You have a lot of talent and you waste it on drawing stupid dogs!"
"Don't you understand that series is for CHILDREN? You're too old!"
"If you want people to take your work seriously, stop drawing stupid animals!"
"All you draw is cats. Can't you draw anything else? I'm so done with your unoriginal bullshit art."
"Wolves, wolves, wolves. All you ever draw is wolves! BORING!"
"Are we ever going to see anything but shitty cartoon dogs from you?"
I'm sure all of us at some point in our artistic lives have dealt with someone who decided it was a good idea to rag on your choice of artwork subject matter. If not yet, you will... trust me. We ALL go through it.
It's hard enough to deal with it from strangers but it's another thing when it comes from people you know. Family, friends,

The Pixlett fraud has been fixed!I have some AMAZING NEWS ;A;
Everyone who has been scammed by Pixlett / ToxicMutagen is getting fully reimbursed by Paypal for our losses!
First off, the other night, when I logged onto Paypal, I saw messages that the chargebacks filed against me had been closed! :'D
In the "Status Details" section, it appears as though Paypal actually decided to investigate against Pixlett and realized that maybe HEY, THIS IS SUSPICIOUS AFTER ALL
Then, when I checked my email last night, I had some emails from Paypal.
They wrote that they are making an exception to the chargeback rule, and fully refunding me ALL money that I lost due to Pixlett (from the first incident in July!)
(P.S. I don't know why the percentage signs are showing up in the email, but the amounts are how much I got chargebacked for.)
So yes, this means that WE WON.
After being told by Paypal over and over that
things i lermed for how to do art-sketch when u feel a burning flame in your heart.
-keep a list of things u want to draw for when the flames are burnin but the brain's not churnin
-don't try to draw if u feel empty and sad, go outside and flail ur legs back and forth instead, write off entire weeks for exercise and doing real life instead of art if you gotta, it's not something u'll forget how do so don't stress
-you can draw anytime even in the morning if you want to
-especially try to do the good lineart on the faces and eyes early in the day before the coffee kicks in
-don't start with the eyes don't start with the eyes DON'T start with the eyes start with the hair to warm up your pencil THEN do the eyes
-pray/dance/meditate before u pencil the eyes
-don't erase it, just transform tool on the computer
-what is traditional media? its where you lower your standards and try to calm down, good luck with patience
-back up BACK UP hold ur paper far away from your face and unfold that pretzel of a spine to check on
