I AM GATHERING UP THAT OLD CONCEPT ART AND I’LL POST IT SOON, but first, have something else I found while digging thru the pile.
This is a letter I sent to my mom sometime between the ages of 5 and 7. I think I was apologizing for being a brat…and then I got sidetracked? I have no idea.
Anicondamandandchoochinitis, you guys.
1000 snakes plus a butterfly.
I’m grown and I couldn’t even come up with a disease name like that holy what
After spending a week with the 6.25“x10” Monoprice, my Yiynova and Cintiq remain unplugged and I gave my Intuos away to a friend. The Monoprice tracks subtle pressure variances and small movements with less lag and more crisp fidelity than any of the others. It is, put crudely, fucking awesome, in both OSX Lion and Windows 7 x64.
Duly fuckin’ noted.
I’ve had my $80, 3.5x5” gaphire 4 for 5 years now, and have been absolutely dreading the day it finally kicks the bucket. (Yes, every digital piece I’ve ever drawn has been on a live area the size of a postcard.)
I am so getting one of these when this thing dies. Or maybe when the stylus dies… thing’s hanging on by a thread. (Let’s just say it’s been without a grip or buttons for I don’t know how many years now.)
Yay for companies not having a veritable monopoly on the market.
I have one of these, 10x6.5 I bought about two months ago for 48 bucks. It’s a billion times better than my old Wacom Bamboo and works like a fuckin dream.
wow I may have to invest in one of these dang
I’ll keep this saved just in case…
ATTENTION ALL PENNY-PINCHING ART FRIENDS!!!
Alright. Just got my new one of these beauties in the mail. It’s almost twice as big as my old tablet, at half the price. (and that’s Including shipping and other delivery fees.)
First impressions, it’s huge, but sturdy, and still works when I rest it on my lap instead of a flat surface (something my Bamboo failed spectacularly at). Works pretty good too. The only major issue is that if I switch to using a mouse, then back to the tablet, the sensitivity settings get wiped and wont reset until I unplug and replug the tablet. That’s a bit of a headache, but if you’re already used to using a tablet for surfing and clicking it shouldn’t be a problem at all.
If any long term issues arise I’ll address them then but so far, pretty spiffy. :)
I’ve had my monoprice for several months now; I use it like a fiend and the batteries I put in the pen in august are still running strong. It runs wonderfully on my mac and I love this thing to bits. I now use it more than my old-ass intuos 4. HIGHLY recommend it, especially for a first tablet.

I think this is going to be my next purchase.
Daemion and what is likely his 40th cup of tea of the day.
