yep don't need the tablet anymore. only thing I'd like is pressure sensitive. but since I don't have Vista it wouldn't do me any good to have the tablet. I'll invest in a few more art books.
friend just told me that the hospital book sale (bigggggggg city wide sale) is coming up and they usually have ooodles of art books donated. and I should be able to pick up some quality books real cheap. I'm heading to that next weekend. so will see what I can find.
hows your drawing coming along? any more of those floating islands? they might be what I attempt next. I really like the looks of the ones you've done so far.
thanks for taking the time to look at my picture . I really appreciate that.
I'm working on another one, 7hrs of work so far and I'm only about half done. The clouds are giving me trouble again. I'm tempted to do the clouds in PDN, but I realy want to paint them myself.
I'd love to see a floating Island done in PDN, if anyone can do it, you can!
Tablets work fine in XP, though PDN doesn't support the pressure sensitive part yet. I'm eagerly awaiting 4.0, I want brushes! Thats about the only thing PSE does better than PDN. I may try GIMP and see how its brush system works.
to be mentioned in ASH's class is a great compliment. although I don't think I'm even close to his ability. He is a great mentor, from day one in paint.net he has been someone I tried to follow and I can see my work improve by doing so.
I'm really happy with this picture. and to be truthful, the more plugins and distortion effects they come up with just adds to the possibilities of better pictures. so as better and newer plugin come on line the ability to improve increases.
many of the final adjustments were done with the stretching and pulling and pushing and bending type plugins. On paper I'd have just erased and reworked in paint.net that manipulation of solid form was time consuming but with better results.
