... this journal rises from the ashes, born anew
Sorry, that was really cheesy
. But yeah... it's been over 2 years since my last journal update, and the main reason I'm updating it today is to take advantage of Free Premium Membership Day so I can use a different journal skin
. I don't usually have a lot to say in journals, being as boring as I am, so don't be surprised if I don't update my journal again until whenever the next Free Premium Membership Day is (if they even have another one after this)
. So, time for some randomness and rambling!
I've always been one to get bored of art projects easily, hence why I have dozens of unfinished pieces scattered around the house and saved on my laptop, and don't post too much here. But this has been made even worse since last summer; my laptop's hard drive died and needed to be replaced. So I did that. However, I was a giant derp and forgot to actually check the speed of the new hard drive before I bought it and had it installed; turns out that it's slower than the one that came with my laptop (old one was 7200 RPM, new one is 5400 RPM), and so it can't even keep up with my graphics tablet
. Which pretty much means no more digital painting for me, probably until this lappy finally decides to kick the bucket. It lags whenever I try to draw a line, either making a line with several corners in it when I try to draw a curve, or else takes a second to actually register that I've started drawing a line and leaves gaps everywhere. No amount of fiddling with settings seems to have fixed this issue, and it seems to be a problem whether I use Photoshop or GIMP. So yeah... that's why most of what I've been submitting lately is stuff that can be done without a tablet. Bummer
Oh hey, lookie dat! I just noticed that today is the 5 year anniversary of when I joined DA
Aaaaaaand I don't know what else to talk about now, so it's time to insert another promo for my DA group,
