 So, for the past couple of YEARS.
My old comp gave me troubles with attempting to up load new art.
Let it be known, I haz a New computer, and she is a Beast.
I will go back some time in the next month or so, and attempt to retroactively put up much of what I had wanted to show, but couldn't.   Lets see if I can remember How.

To be Honest...
I have not drawn much in well over a Year.
I could tell you health problems, life problems, depression,  financial, and time restraints, and all would be true.
But really, Its just Me.

How ever.
I started drawing a bit again recently, a few months ago now.
Now I am drawing a bit, almost every day.  Its a start.

I have new pieces I will be starting to put up for show soon.
(Maybe late next month when I can get out and get them properly scanned.)

But Hey, at Least I am Drawing again.
Sorry for the long wait to all whom for some reason added me to their watch list.  lol.
And yet, new stuff IS coming.  You can decide for your self weather you think the wait was worth it or not.

Remember though.  I am rusty.
Consider this stuff for a little while, a warm up.
I will try to do more complex pieces after april.

So, wish me Luck!?

. . . so you got the new computer in June and still no new posts (not even a new journal).  What's up with that?

This is a huge pen tablet by Huion that is inexpensive.  It is not a display tablet, so you draw on it while looking at the monitor.  it's a lot cheaper than my tiny Wacom Intuos.  My thought is that it makes sense to start with a pen tablet before going all in for a display tablet. That was what I did.…

In any event, there are a lot of options to consider.  This is only one possibility.  And note that it's wireless, which means it has to be recharged.  Personally, I don't like having to charge a tablet or pen.  (Never have to do that with Wacom products.)

Ah. Check out the Youtube videos.  You can learn a lot from them about the Cintiq and other displays.  I posted a few when I was looking, and some more after I purchased.  Should mention that despite the initial problems, the company worked out all the driver bugs.  While it took three months for that, the thing works perfectly, now.

Don't freak, Grant, when you see the notice that I'm watching you, again.  I don't recall removing your icon from the list.  Sometimes happens that I clean house and get a little too compulsive abou it.  

Happy New Year.  Hoping you work out the bugs that have plagued posting here at DA. :D :thumbsup:
