Help! Problem with Bamboo tablet! (Update: Fixed!)UPDATE! IT'S FIXED! I called Wacom this morning, and the solution was so damn simple. The guy had me uninstall Bamboo from the programs in the control panel, restart my computer, install the latest driver only from Wacom's website, and voila! I HAS PRESSURE SENSITIVITY! Thanks for all the suggestions, guys!Help! Problem with Bamboo tablet! (Update: Fixed!)3 years ago in Personal More Like This
So I just bought me a new Bamboo Pen Tablet. The problem? The pressure sensitivity isn't recognized in drawing programs--I've tried it in Photoshop CS5, Corel Painter Essentials 4, and Open Canvas.
I installed all the drivers on Wacom's website.
I made sure Windows 7's tablet pen settings in the control panel had the "press and hold = right click" disabled.
I restarted my computer.
Made sure all the drawing programs had pressure sensitivity enabled.
Went into the Bamboo Preference File Utility and removed preferences.
But the eraser end of the pen isn't even recognized--the cursor doesn't move.
I did go into the Bamboo preferences and checked the pressure sensitivity leve

Sesshomaru's Name....This time, we're going to take a hard look at Sesshomaru's name and it's translation.Sesshomaru's Name....2 years ago in Personal More Like This
"Sesshomaru" breaks into three kanji characters:
殺 生 丸
or Sesshomaru together.
Let's look at them one at a time:
This is a ten stroke character that is pronounced "se-tsu" or サイ.
Generally, it can mean one of the following:
kill, murder, slay, suppress, stifle, smother
It is character 488 in A Guide to Remembering Japanese Characters, and appears on page 150.
If we dissect setsu, we get the following:
The first half of setsu is a corruption of the character for "pig" (character 1670 page 533) and the second half is the character for "strike/weapon in the hand" (character 153 page 43).
Together, they make up the single kanji "setsu" and it represents to kill with a weapon.
The next character of his name is 生 , which is a five stroke character, (number 42 on page 12 of the aforementioned book), and while in thi

DA's Insular Taste PhenomenonIt's been quite a while since I wrote a preachy "THINK ABOUT YO' ART"-type journal, and some of my newer watchers may not know that this is a particular(ly annoying) habit of mine. This is a subject I've had on my mind for quite some time for a number of reasons, and it's recently coalesced into a semi-soluble form so here we go. (As an aside- this journal does have some recycled ideas from a previous post of mine, but obviously I hadn't really said everything I wanted to on the subject.)DA's Insular Taste Phenomenon2 years ago in Personal More Like This
It's no mystery that I love this website. I came in at the tail end of the pre-critique wonder years, when the internet discovered and exploited that, yes, we don't always produce the highest quality art here. There's a lot of unpleasantness directed towards DeviantArt. At RISD, I made a point to never mention that I had an account here, because of the looks of disgust I would get haha and people would think about me differently. It was
Win 100 points!!!!!!! Winners Announced!EDIT: So, first off, I feel the need to let you guys know that my love for all you're entries just caused the biggest heart attack of my life! I came to the lab across from my dorm to take an on-line quiz and when I got there I remembered that this contest ended today. So, of course, I decided I would update this journal before I started. Anywho, my need to let you all know how fabulous (and they truly are) you're entries are took over an hour. After finishing the entry list I checked the quiz and spotted the "due by 11:59 pm" and just froze solid and started freaking out. (Um, yeah, I know now that 11:59 pm means right before midnight. But when I saw it I had a brain fart and forgot that little fact.) So, there you go. My little tripping-balls experience for the day, lol.Win 100 points!!!!!!!
