I have, like, fifteen things I want to color and no time to do it! And when I do have time, my stupid wrist hurts. Wah! Wah, I say! Wah!
Anyway, I finally discovered openCanvas a little while back, and have purchased myself a copy. I love it. Hugging and squeezing doesn't begin to cover it. I still like Photoshop too, but the ability to just...draw on my computer...YEE! I'm finding myself far more inclined to actually draw backgrounds using that. They're such a hassle for me on traditional paper. I draw the figures, and then lose interest. But noodling around in a medium where I can just click a button to fix mistakes? Oh yes, please!
Oddly, it's a bit harder for me to draw people, in some ways. I begin to discover the allure of a larger tablet. Mine's a widdle 4x5 guy, which generally is enough for me, and more than enough for my wallet, but it feels a bit odd compared to having a swathe of paper before me that I can roam about on unimpeded by edges and the need for scrolling. Not that the scrolling bit would be helped by a larger tablet. That'd need a bigger monitor, and *that* is not happening anytime terribly soon. Mine's 19" as it is, which makes me feel like a whiner.
Yes, alright, so I am a whiner.
In other news, I'm feeling the burn of RAM--or rather, lack of it. I cranked my virtual memory up to around 3 gigs, which is making my programs run more smoothly, but my onboard RAM is a measly 256MB. And there it will stay until I get a new motherboard, because my computer is that damn old. While I'm at it, I would like newer USB, a case that isn't decrepit, and, oh, a new CPU, why not? Mine probably won't fit anything currently on the market anyway. The happy thing about all this is that with NewEgg, I can actually purchase all this shininess for about $250 to $300! And then I'll probably cart it northward and bond with my dad over computer innards. He loves this stuff.
No, there's nothing of significance going on in my life. Why do you ask?
