GOT MY HUION GT-220 V2(8291)Pen Tablet Monitor WORKING FINALLY! My father very generously lent me the money for it but when I got it the light pen wasn't being detected even with correct driver installation. I contacted Huion customer service who were brilliant and mailed me (From CHINA no less) a replacement pen. Unfortunately this wasn't working either so I removed the driver and tried the GT-220 V2 driver which worked but the alignment of pen location to cursor was off but a lot. I then installed the GT-220 V2 (8291) driver while the previous one was still installed and ran the calibration test and low and behold it worked. 2 weeks i had this awesome piece of tech and not be able to use it and now that I can I'm sick haha. Well I guess I can wait a couple more days : ]
Fur Faced Friend
Originally I was only going to create just the head based on a quick sketch I made but got carried away experimenting with some Fur Brushes.

Time Taken: 4 Hours

Apologies to the creator/creators of the brush/brushes as I cannot find the list I was compiling containing brushes I have used from which artist but please rest assured I am not using this for any monetary gain.
The Brushes I downloaded for Photoshop were as follows listed under 'Grass & Foliage':
Pelt 1
Pelt 2
Fur Fluffy
Fur Thin
Fur Winter

Been trying to make some inquiries about possible crowd funding to purchase either a Huion GT-220 V2 Black Graphics Drawing Monitor or XP-PEN Artist22 Pro 22inch HD IPS Graphic Pen Display Interactive Drawing Tablet Monitor (both £400) as I just feel I cannot improve any further on my standard no screen tablet. I don't really want to do this cause it feels desperate and what with all you see and hear of similar practices even by companies such as Cloud Imperium Games (Star Citizen) taking it to an extreme I'm only looking for advice at this moment until I can find a way to get the money myself. Any advice would be appreciated as navigation through the forums is a nightmare.
The Character:
This remind me of those old fable books about monsters and folklore. The figure's distorted body posture is reminiscent somewhat of a spider with it's bow legged legs and comparative low body position. Or perhaps she has birthed this new being and is cleaning it (I like not to go with the most obvious depictions if possible).Another arachnid similarity is her eyes. They are dark and life-less yet conveying something that lurks beneath. Along her forehead I see some smaller formations perhaps implying (again much like a spider) many more eyes. The red leaves being very bloody coloured and at the contour to which they seem to be falling down again imply yet another beautiful contradiction. Life leaving one body to be given to a new.

The Scene:
The colour palette choice was a very professional one. All too much these days people douse too many of their works with a plethora of saturated colour, rendering the piece a bit generic and in some cases causes an eye sore. Yet you have shown a lovely understanding of realism in context to your scene. It's a foggy forest which seems to have been drained of life. Now here is the contradiction that art can shows us. Which brings me to the point I made earlier about the Hag possibly giving birth to this being in the water. To me, the 2 trees in the foreground represent open vaginal lips and further in, the womb. Water being a symbol or element of life to which was given to this new born. The Trees in the background are also perhaps illuminated from the inside slightly again implying the light of life. Forests also provide shelter and resources.

In Closing:
I do not know whether what I have seen in this wonderful work is accurate to what you envisaged or made you think of once completed, but art is open to interpretation and thought provoking. If it doesn't make us use our brains sometimes (not every art work needs an in-depth analysis) then a medium can become sterile. I adore this piece. I can vividly see it inside a book of Tales of Ye Olde of some sorts.

Great work, you have earned a fan : ]
Last night finished a piece after a heck of a lot of stress from the programs being used. Felt very anxious but persevered. Didn't want to wake up knowing I still had to finish it. Today woke up with pain in my hands again. Has been happening here and there since I started getting back into my art. Gona go doctor's next week. Hope it's a passing thing just body getting used to it again but it's been 2 months now. Let's see
