I liked the result of my last attempt, so I decided to try out a couple of ink attempts. I say 'attempts' because I didn't properly finish either. All I wanted to do was get a feel for the tools. Both are the same character, sketched within Krita on an animation template even though I … Continue reading More Krita Doodles & an Update
Without a 'working' copy of Photoshop on my PC (aside from Elements 5, thanks to an old CD that came bundled with my Bamboo fun tablet—and Clip Studio Paint, whenever I get around to properly acquainting myself with that interface), I decided to test out some 'alternatives' for casual sketching. Here's a quick Krita re-sketch of … Continue reading Krita Doodle
So, it turns out that my Windows 7 DVD (the one I've been pulling my hair out for the last couple of months trying to find) had been safely tucked inside a clear plastic bin labelled "nightstand".

The downside is it has no pressure sensitivity at the moment (I'm still fiddling with drivers and such, if only to be able to adjust basic … Continue reading New (Old) Tablet
Usually, I wouldn't expect to find a laptop newer than ten or fifteen years of age in Value Village, but I've been lucky once before and found the exact item I was hoping for: a copy of The Sims complete collection (with all 4 CDs!). It only set me back about $4. Because of that, … Continue reading New (Old) Laptop?
