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 ...

The amount of love I feel for this cannot be described in words!
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!
So thank you for making this and making my day a lot better. And thank you for making Louis
Gorgeous drawing by the way, everything is so awesome in in, and look at all the pretty faces !!!!
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.
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.
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.
Regarding the picture I think you did splendid, and I like that extra detail with the patterns on the cloth patches. Great portrait!
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.
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.
