Yeah hey Velskud. I know you’re actually a really cool guy and all but you hit me harder than the Apocalypse does so like CAN YOU NOT PLEASE?? It is NOT cool for you to wail on my warrior like that you meanie face.
Also Geraint I love you but wtf Abyss mode go and die can.
My adorb fluffbutt Moonlord/Lunar Knight, Thlayli. :D
I’ve got a little guild made up of friends and we’d love to meet new people. If you happen to play Dragon Nest SEA, Westwood server and are currently guild-less, you’re totally welcome to apply. No requirements, all I ask is you not be a fartbag. The guild name is Valkyrjur, we’ve got a recruitment notice up but you can always drop me a message here too.

10min sketch…Argenta from Dragon Nest
Doodle doodle doodle. Breaking in the new equipment.
Recently, I made the decision to go back to using an Intuos5, or Intuos Pro, as they are now branded.
The Cintiq 24HD was amazing, but after nearly a year of using it, there are a few reasons why I decided it wasn’t for me. Don’t get me wrong, it’s a wonderful piece of equipment, and I did enjoy using it during the time I had it, but there were issues. For those who are considering investing in a Cintiq 24HD, take note.
1. The size and sheer bulk. The Cintiq is nearly 70cm across and weighs close to 40kg. It takes up SO much space. To start work, I’d have to push my keyboard tray away and use a mini keyboard mounted on top of the Cintiq because there would be no space to put my full-sized keyboard. It kind of made transitioning between working with the keyboard/mouse to drawing kind of annoying, versus me just moving my keyboard to the table top and immediately being able to draw. If I’m done drawing, I can simply put my keyboard on top of my Intuos versus having to shift everything (including the Cintiq’s display)
2. Parallax error. The Cintiq’s surface is made of glass. This means that no matter how hard you try your pen tip and cursor are never going to match up 100%. Calibrating it certainly helps, but I realised that where I clicked with the pen, was not where it was reflected on the screen - it was close enough, but it was never EXACT. Once, the calibration borked itself and I spent nearly half an hour trying to get it such that my cursor wasn’t offset from my pen by like 5mm.
2a. Back on the glass point, the surface feel just isn’t as toothy and textured as the Intuos is. Not really an issue, but I miss the texture. And unless you want smudges all over the screen or having your skin stick to the glass, you probably need a glove.
3. The screen can get uncomfortably warm if you’ve had it on for a while. I’m not sure if it’s just my unit or if it’s an actual issue across the board.
4. When you draw, your arm/hand will inevitably block part of what you’re drawing. I suppose the same can be said for drawing on traditional medium but it’s nice to have your digital canvas not be obscured by your arm.
Not everyone will have the same feelings as me, this is just a personal opinion of why I feel this piece of equipment didn’t work out for me. It IS a great thing to have if you’re serious about art, but for me, I think I’m better off with a normal Intuos.
You’re the same level from when I left off months ago. :o
I’m actually 44 now…on my way to 45 XD
I’m very sure I’m not the only one who’s done this.
Geraint from Dragon Nest. Bish glitched out my main quest and forced me to restart the dungeon a few times but eh, I still like him anyway.
Trying to get re-acquainted with an Intuos Creative. @_@ It is proving surprisingly difficult.
Quick doodle of my Screamer from Dragon Nest…
carlottablackwell asked: I tend to tell other people what I like about their art and there's one thing about your art that I miss out and I forgot to tell: the quantity of realism and anime that you have in your drawings. Hope that makes sense. *sweatdrop*
Realism and anime don’t really go together though, I feel…
carlottablackwell asked: Just saying that I can't wait to see how your finished unhelmeted Valkyr and also your original potrait of Tiramisu will turn out! :D
I abandoned the Tiramisu portrait. D: Didn’t like it in the end.
Goofing around in a new software.
