All aboard the HMS Allies!

This was a nightmare and a half to colour with my Cintiq still buggered by that Win10 update, but I was determined to have a proper picture before the end of Pride Month. It takes a while for Louis' crew to warm up to him, but they get there in the end!

If they seem to look familiar, it's because they arrr ...

Are these pirates your OC's or are they just REALLY familiar?

Glad to come back here and find that you've come back to us as well, Sak. (:

Wow, I thought it was just me with apparent tablet problems? I just installed a new PS program my mom so graciously gifted me and apparently it, my computer, and my tablet do not want to play :/ 

Regardless though, your coloring and forms look so beautiful in this piece. And belated Happy Pride Month

This hit so hard in the feels!! In all the right ways! Things have been really tough for my kids and I, all of which fall outside the gender and binary norms. But this was an amazing, priceless thing.

I love how they're so supportive and kind! Thank you so much for sharing this!

Aww, what a lovely crew Louis has!

My Cintiq got messed up by Windows 10 updates about a month ago.  I found a fix with Photoshop to get it to use WinTab instead of Windows Ink and it has worked like a charm ever since!  I dunno if you want to give that a shot, but here's the Reddit post that says how to do it - www.reddit.com/r/wacom/comment…

Best of luck!

I love the diversity of the crew. They all have such unique personalities! The textures and patterns of the fabrics are a really nice detail too.

Having recently discovered I’m Bi and actually coming out to a few people, this makes my heart smile. I wish that more people were understanding like this. At times I wish I had Louis’ confidence because there are times I wish I could come out to certain people like my family but I know that would end badly since not only is not well looked upon in my church, my mother is incredibly old fashioned and it would end badly if I ever said anything. 

So thank you for making this and making my day a lot better. And thank you for making Louis

Quarter-Virus 

Hey, so saw you were having trouble with your Wacom Cintiq.  I am not entirely sure the issue but a few months back when they did an updated my Wacom Intuos Pro stopped working.  There are several fixes one of which was issued by Windows themselves after the problem arose.  But I am not entirely sure if it is the same issue.  The issue is with Windows Ink and the easiest fix is to go into your cmd prompt app and type the following:
reg add HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Pen /v LegacyPenInteractionModel /t REG_DWORD /d 1 /f

All the other fixes failed me but this one is what fixed all the problems I had.  I am hoping the issue is the same for you and you can get this fixed.

Hey! Thanks for the advice. The problem I'm having is alt + right click no longer working to change brush size, which really messed with me. The forums I found dated as far back as four years ago and there still doesn't seem to be a reliable fix for this problem.

I downloaded the latest Cintiq update just today--and it was a big one--but it still did not fix the problem. I used the bracket keys [ ] to change brush size instead, which was the only reason I was able to finish this.

I tried turning off WinInk following one suggestion, but that just god rid of pressure sensitivity as well! I have not yet seen your suggestion in forums and may try it ... I am not familiar with programming and generally avoid poking around in cmd.

Give it a shot simply because it's pretty easy to remove if that does not help all you do is change the add part of the command to delete and you delete that registry key and things go back to normal.  But to link you in to one of the many places I found this fix: answers.microsoft.com/en-us/wi…

I pretty much went through all the fixes for the issue I had before I found this one.  But it was sadly not the same issue.  I wish I had a Cintiq so I could help you out.  I have wanted one for a while honestly.  I hope it does help and if not the information on how to undo the edit comes in handy.

The problem with the Cintiq seems to arise because Win10's updates are designed for their tablets, and fuck what everyone else is using! So the issue may not be the same as I never had problems on my Tablet. It seems to be a surface thing.

Got to love Microsoft and their updates.  Happens the same way with my Wacom Intuos Pro.  Windows updates for their tablets and such and we get screwed in the process.  Loads of fun.  I just wasn't entirely sure what the issue the update caused for you.  Wanted to give you what helped me since Wacom makes Cintiq and Intuos Pro.  I adore your art and I know what a pain it was when it happened to me and how long I spent trying to fix it and I had an art payment deadline at the time.  Good luck Sak, I hope something works in the end for you.  Hell if nothing else call Microsoft and tell them to fix their shit.

I also have the wacom cintiq problem on the new win10 update - "glad" to hear I am not alone on it, and should you find a solution somehow, let me know.
Regarding the picture I think you did splendid, and I like that extra detail with the patterns on the cloth patches. Great portrait! :)

Thanks! I hope things get resolved for you, too.

It's horrible that the problem seems to be an ongoing issue for years. The problem I have involves alt + right click no longer working to change brush size, which felt like I was colouring with one arm tied behind my back. The help forums I found dated as far back as four years ago, and they still haven't fixed this problem. I downloaded the latest Cintiq update just now, and it was a big one, but it still did not fix the problem.

I had to use the bracket keys [ ] to change brush size. It worked, but it was still painful.

I experienced the same problem, and the way I found the solution was by not holding the pen to the canvas, but hover it close enough to let the canvas register its presence: Otherwise, instead of adjusting the brush size, it would select colours. 

My main issue has been that the pen pressure randomly disables, so that I have to redo every second line I draw. Sometimes the lines would also be drawn as odd, wobbly lines, and I'd have to restart the whole computer: It's a pain during the clean up progress. 
Krita has also been fucked up, so that Lazy Nezumi no longer works as intended for me there. I liked to use it for 2D animation, but not even Lazy Nezumi's customer support could help.


I saw that wacom recently just updated the driver, but I haven't tested if it's improved yet.
