It's rather sudden, but . . .
I have now returned with a recently-obtained desktop computer!
Unfortunately, though, I do not have my little Wacom Bamboo tablet properly installed yet, so the pressure sensitivity won't work until then, and neither is my flatbed CanoScan scanner ready to use. I'm using Ubuntu, an operating system I'm not all too familiar with, so I have to get a friend to help me out with installing these, since he's the one to suggest the OS. I think I regret it, even though I know Windows is a pain in the butt, but I just hope I can get these things up and running soon.
I have a large queue of linearts and sketches, mostly gifts, trades, and commissions, waiting to be colored digitally, so I'll be pretty busy arting on the computer for a while! I also have some pages from my sketchbooks to share. Having no computer for digital art meant that I had to give my sketchbooks some love, and they have comforted me through the past six, oh-so-dreadful months. I really can't wait to get started!
My old laptop, sadly, has not been repaired yet and I still don't know when I can get it fixed. But at least I can still grab my files out and salvage everything I need in there before it has to be reformatted.
In the meantime, I will be posting a few things I have completed earlier this year or in the last couple of years that I have not shown in public. I need to liven up my neglected gallery, so keep an eye out!
