mini word post:
i got an art tablet. i have been THINKING about buying such a thing for YEARS, and finally actually did it.
i got my tax refund money and decided to get myself a present. a FANCY present. i bought a Cintiq. let me tell you, this thing was crafted by WIZARDS. i can't BELIEVE the marvelousness of using this thing. but, because of such marvelousness, i have been practically inextricably tethered to it for a few weeks now. i've been in the middle of a MASSIVE fan art project, and without the Cintiq, this thing would have been next to impossible to create. i have been using the big project as a means to learn and get used to the tablet, since i have never used one before. as a result, the pictures i have been working on later look much nicer than the earlier ones, causing me to go back and tweak the old ones. this project has been a series of 24 drawings, and now i'm down to one left. this project has had my near full attention for weeks, and as a result, have been slacking in other areas. you should see my house. someone really needs to pass a vacuum in here. i just wanted to give y'all a little info here, since i haven't been posting for a bit, not shown new art, have some CDs to mail to people now that their address are posted in another thread, etc etc, blee bloo blah. that's what's up.
