I haven't been keeping up with this very well. i've got a TON of new art that has not been uploaded here. To be honest, if it weren't for a few faithful friends on here ( waves at
and several others ) I don't know if I'd still be posting anything since I haven't been getting much interaction
It's kinda depressing. But for those of you that still read these, still look and comment and fave, thank you very much! I'm still trying to post things for ya! sorry about the long periods of silence in between...I'm trying to be better.
You'll note that most of my art lately has been supernatural related - i've been in an art slump for a while and outside of commissions, i've been using fandom to kinda keep myself going. Sometimes it's prompts, sometimes it's for a story, sometimes just a random idea i've had...I don't know what's wrong with me, but if there's something I can keep drawing, I'm gonna draw it.
Also, so I had to get a new computer and I'm having a few issues with the transfer process. Meaning I've lost access to my NORMAL art programs and have been doing this weird juggling act to do any scanning and coloring at all. I'm still using the old laptop to scan using the old copy of photoshop I don't have a replacement for. then dropping it onto the new one via dropbox.
then I color it in Art Rage (because I literally CANNOT find my beloved Manga Studio 5 disc. Seriously, I found the box and the cd sleeve. No disc. like, WTH did I do with the disc???) which has been an interesting learning curve but it IS a neat program. However, with ALL the free programs I got with my intuos pen and touch a few years ago, (or, for that matter, GIMP which i've been assured is just like photoshop - it's not) not ONE of the programs can set up my ink linework for coloring the way i want it to.
trying to transfer all my old files from the old laptop to the new one is taking forever - the only harddrive i had big enough to do the transfer is KAPUT. it was nearly full of stuff to begin with and now i can't get it open - on ANY computer. Which means I've lost ALL my old art files - probably about 6-10 years worth? and without that external drive, there's no QUICK AND EASY way to transfer everything on the old laptop. so i've been using the dropbox and OH MY GOD it is slow. and i completely blame the old laptop - i have some pretty hefty folders and one of them took ALL DAY to transfer up off the old laptop...and 5 minutes to download onto the new one. Yeah. it's not my connection. *sigh*
Hope everyone is doing well! Talk to you (i hope!)
