I haven't really been doing art but I think I'm mainly just going to stick to tumblr now sweet-sheepy-faces.tumblr.com/

At least in terms of what would ever be journal entries here. I might still archive art here if I ever draw any again. :V

School's out, time to draw maybe.

Not like I don't have a million things to do otherwise, though.
I should draw more, but I always hate the results, so I never do.

I think that maybe I should draw even worse, hate them more, and try to destroy this emotion.

Sounds like a stellar plan.
Quick rundown of what it is. This is a cross-platform network drawing program. And pretty much the only reasonably good one I can find that supports Linux (my OS of choice) and Windows (everyone else's, including my Mabi husband).
Their site is here drawpile.sourceforge.net/
It's sort of abandoned but it works nicely, nonetheless. My only real complaint is that layers are disabled in network mode. They fixed this yay~

Cool this was updated to 0.8.3 :D drawpile.sourceforge.net/get/

To install on Ubuntu you can add the getdeb repo as stated, but you'll probably need to add this one for the QT stuff, too: www.ubuntuupdates.org/ppa/ubun…

Alright, with a little effort I've compiled the latest version of Drawpile for Windows. You can find it here: www.mediafire.com/download.php…

I compiled for Linux as well but that's less of a butt and considering the variance in Linux it's more difficult to share. However there were some troubles in it so let me briefly explain what I did, to the best of my recollection.

1) Make sure you have git, cmake, qt4, and zlib installed.
2) Clone the git repo: git clone https://github.com/callaa/Drawpile.git
3) cd Drawpile
4) mkdir build
5) cd build
6) cmake ..
7) nano src/client/CMakeFiles/drawpile.dir/link.txt
8) Add -lz between -lQtCore and -Wl
9) Save (Ctrl+O) and quit (Ctrl+X)
10) make
11a) sudo make install
or 11b) su root && make install
12) For me, it installed drawpilenet.so to the wrong place so I did: ln -s /usr/local/lib/libdrawpilenet.so /usr/lib64 - Good idea? Probably not..

AS A SPECIAL BONUS here's the .desktop file I made for it. Save it to ~/.local/share/applications/drawpile.desktop

[Desktop Entry]

GenericName=Collaborative drawing program

Art class over, still too lazy to post all the pics. Haha. It's such a pain to photograph such large drawings. There are really only a couple more I care to share, anyway.

I'm pleased with my performance in the class, though. The teacher took a picture of the melted candles one as an example for future classes, and I think of that as some kind of high honor even if it probably isn't.

Anyway, that being over with, and my not having any plans for a future art classes, what I post (if I post, hehe) will just be my own hobby work. Time to figure out to to compile the latest Drawpile for 64bit Windows so my Mabi hubby and I can draw together. :d

Oh so I'm in an art class now. Expect pics when I get off my lazy ass and photograph them.

Also, I've joined a pen and paper game, and due to the artistic talent of the group, I may be learning to draw better with my tablet.

Just started here and will be posting my progress in learning how to draw well as I go.
For now just expect line art, maybe some CG work.

That's all for now, tata. ^_~
