Saturday Updates and Feature

Journal Entry: Sat May 25, 2013, 11:17 AM
Hey guys! It's Saturday again, and I'm back for an update. So. I may have fixed my Wacom. :D I'm not sure how either. The only thing I haven't gotten working is the pressure sensitivity (it draws in SAI again now) I think after all my fiddling it just needs a reboot now, but haven't done it yet cause I'm lazy. Imma enjoy my weekend and get around to doing that at some point. Yes, I realize this sounds ridiculous but I usually have 20+ windows open on my computer at any given time, working on various projects, so rebooting is like.. a major task. I have to save everything I'm doing, keep track of where I was, reboot, hassle with the Windows 8 image lock, and then restart all my programs and load up the projects again. I promise I'll get to it, I'm just too lazy to do it at this moment. That aside, I have got a bunch of articles I need to post up over at my book review blog, cause I'm behind, I need to do some reading, laundry, dishes, and somehow find time to pick up my living room - that once again looks like a bomb went off. XD

Also a big thank you to all my commissioners who have filled out my survey so far :). I sent a survey out last night to everyone who'd commissioned me at some point (who hasn't left DA) to get feedback on my commission process and how people think I handle it. It was completely anonymous so people could be honest, and it's been interesting to see people's responses. So far 9/10 of the responses I've gotten so far have been exceptionally positive, so I'm pretty happy. It's given me a pretty good idea of what my strengths and weaknesses are as far as communication, quality, prices, and overall experience. Hopefully the rest of my many commissioners will find some time to fill it out soon as well. I'd love to be able to quote some of the written responses I've gotten on my commission page, and may do so at some point.

Anyways, here's some art to keep you entertained this weekend. I hope everyone's having a great couple of days. It's hot as hell here -_-. As always, these are all pulled from my favorites folder. I don't descriminate based on popularity or exposure, so if I thought it was worthy of favoring, it can end up in one of my features :) be sure to go visit these awesome artists and let them know what you think.

I was guessing as much, forgive me, I'm just an impatient person at times :P
I'll try to quietly watch this space for news *angelic innocence*

True. I'm glad to hear that you're alright. :)

I'm doing pretty good, too. Doing part-time work at DD, though I'm trying to work my way up to management (thanks to our illustrious President, many places are cutting out full-time employment from everyone except salaried positions) and am looking for more PT work in the meantime.

Also moved. I now live in sunny Florida - Fort Myers, to be specific. :3
