Hey guys, I'll be on tonight's Critique Night from [link]
, to answer questions.
Not sure what awaits me tonight, but I'm looking forward to it! Pop in at [link]
and find out, too!
I've also finally, finally bought myself a new computer. You know I'm still working with the old Photoshop 6.0, but my workflow usually looked like this: click - wait... wait... wait... reaction. Paint a line... wait... wait... paint another line. Save image... wait... wait... wait... get myself some new Pepsi... come back... wait... wait... you get the idea.
Now this thing is so damn fast that I feel almost rushed! I'm not used to something happening as soon as I click! That's weird. My old comp had 1 GB RAM. Now I'm running (literally!) on 6 GB and it's mind-blowing.
The school term is pretty much over as well, and I can finally finish that Tolkien commission! I knew I was going to need a new comp for it too - the lineart file was already so huge that it was impossible to work with. Putting the watercolours together would probably have finished it off, and I wasn't keen on that.
