And right after the show ended too…
Shhh. No spoilers! I’m only on season 4… though I already have a feeling my favorite character’s going to die. Nooo, poor Jesse. I always seem to fall for the doomed-to-die characters.
(For anyone who lives in a cave, I’m talking about Breaking Bad.)
In other news, I decided to make a little paperchild for a friend of mine who’s a big fan of the Tenth Doctor.
Chubby little Tennant with his sonic screwdriver. Hee.
Well anyways, I don’t have much else to upload at the moment. Too busy watching BB and applying to post bacc programs. Ugh. Life.
A big thanks to all my new followers (broke 2k a few weeks ago! I’ll draw something to celebrate soon :D) and sorry for the inactivity. I’ll find my mojo again eventually.
|Anonymous said: Hi! I saw your review on the Yiynova MSP19u and as someone who uses Paint Tool SAI I wanted to ask if it behaves fine? I heard it had issues with dual-monitor set ups but I was wondering if you had it working just fine either way? Thanks!|
Yes, the Yiynova works perfectly fine with SAI for me and the dual-monitor set up didn’t cause any issues. Some people have said that the pen jitters a lot more on SAI than in other programs but I haven’t had that issue. I did have an unbearably jitter-y pen when I first started using it but that was because I hadn’t uninstalled my other tablet driver before installing the one for the Yiynova. Yes, you have to uninstall all other tablet drivers before installing the Yiynova, but if you’re like me and prefer to switch between tablets, you can always re-install the other drivers after the Yiynova has been properly installed. Installing other tablets after installing the Yiynova has no affect on the Yiynova. :)
One thing that has started to bother me more and more about the Yiynova, however, is its screen resolution. It really has a very low ppi for a tablet this large. After staring at it for long, my eyes start to blur or hurt. Then again, I like to draw with at least 80% of the canvas in view so it’s more of an issue. If you prefer to zoom in really close, the low res shouldn’t cause too much of a problem.
My overall recommendation to anyone who’s looking to get a Yiynova is still pretty much the same. Get it if you really need a Cintiq-esque tablet but can’t afford a Cintiq. If you do have enough for a Cintiq, definitely get the Cintiq. And, if you don’t really need a Cintiq-esque tablet but want an upgrade, just get an extra large wacom tablet.
I have been so art blocked lately it’s not even funny…
Five minutes into trying to draw anything, I’m like:
And then I’m all like:
Halp. Someone give me a prompt, an idea, a song, something.
Preferably a song… since that tends to inspire me the most.
So, not only am I overwhelmed with work but I’m also incredibly art blocked. In the meantime, have some random origami for a change:
I present to you the tortoise and the hare… and the elephant and the dragon. Some messed up fairytale going on here.
Equally random, here are some lovely Hobbit moleskines that I just couldn’t resist! (under cut)
…cause I’ve been busy with grad school prep. Harumph! :T
I’ll be back with real art soon-ish.
In a hole in the ground there lived a Hobbit.
(They look too effeminate… sigh.)
