Screwed around all day. Nice day and all but after I mowed the lawn, it all went straight downhill. Aaaugh.

Villons!
Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.

Ooh, I like these.  Nice change of pace.
Probably not a Goat, either.

Gauph, that looks nothing like a space gator. You're a terrible artist and you should stop drawing.

Seriously though, that's awfully nice. I rarely see you color things so this is quite a treat to see from you. :)

Yeah, I miss it. It's certainly been awhile.
I'll probably be bugging you about SAI a bit while I try to figure the damned thing out. With my pen, I use one of the two buttons as undo. In SAI, this works, but it also brings up the move function briefly.
And it gets stuck and locks the program unless alt+tab. This is exactly why I stopped using the bloody thing last time. Now I totally remember.

Tried to sort it out in keyboard shortcuts and stuff but I dunno. I guess I'll have to fiddle with the tablet's software settings a bit too.

How do you draw your stuff anyway? I've always wondered that. Like do you have a stand for your tablet and you've got one hand with the pen and another on the keyboard or what?
My tablet can't go anywhere but my lap and it's a pain in the ass. Reaching for the keyboard for stuff could help but it's just slightly out of the question.

Bleh.

Yeah, SAI will ignore your tablet settings over it's own. But you can change that under Help/Config > Options > Tablet.

The bottom section for button settings should let you change it to any key binging you want. I like to use the hand tool on my pen button, right-click on the second pen button. I put the undo function on my tablet's buttons. One of the reasons why I really think the Intuos 4 is super useful is it has a lot of buttons. So I try to put all of the important shortcuts there and keep my other hand on the tablet.

In your case, I would try keeping your keyboard close and getting familiar with all the shortcuts. I still have to use the keyboard to change the pen opacity with the number keys.

And yes, I do get the hand tool stuck occasionally. I usually click the secondary pen button (right click) or any other key to snap out of it.

Alright, thanks. I'll probably be asking some more things as I go along.

For today, I just fiddled around with more doodling. Pretty tired after a bit of a party yesterday at someone's place, might have picked up a bug. Not totally sure yet.
Could have been a bad day for drawing. I kept bumming myself out. When I realized what I was doing, I told myself to piss off.
Then I drew for awhile.

I thought today I'd mess with the background and pen colors again. Still effectively dark on light, but I thought I'd see if it affected my drawing.
I'd certainly say it did.

Second from left in the middle.

No tv and no beer make Homer... something something.

Unless I am mistaken, he appears to be flanked by some intriguing versions of Marge Simpson and Peter Griffin.
What meme is relevant right now? Look, just imagine I'm riffing on that. Updating signatures is exhausting.

More fiddlin'.



Can you decipher the language at the top?
Try for a bit and then hover over the spoiler for a hint.


It doesn't mean anything, you dork. Give me your lunch money.

Even more fiddlin'.

First is the warmup I did while listening to music. Took about half an hour.
Second took about an hour and forty, messing around like usual but still making some pretty neato stuff.
