Hi everyone! Capu here
Well so here's my excuse this time.. *insert dramatic sigh*
I acknowledge my increasing absence and lack of activity this past year has been less than satisfactory for those expecting more commission openings or trades or anything of the like.. however as much as I want to do them all, I have to admit..
I'm experiencing the never-ending stress of college applications and SATs that plagues highschool students! And primarily seniors I suppose..
This is actually my senior year of highschool! Time sure goes by quickly.. It's been about 2 and a half years I've been on deviantART already and I only wish I could be as (crazily) active as I was the first year.. which would be.. around my freshman year of highschool. Oh the GOOD TIMES XD
I feel like an old fart now saying this, but for those of you who just entered your freshman year of highschool.. please enjoy it O___O
I was never the studious or diligent type in comparison to many of my high-achieving classmates so I guess now's the time I hope that my portfolio weighs much much more than my GPA or SAT scores when I attempt to apply to an art school..
Needless to say, I am still slowly but surely finishing any owed commissions because I do not wish to rush any of them.
I am also slowly but surely working on opening another batch of commissions when everything else underlying is finished!
Thank you everyone for the continued support and understanding! And I'm so sorry I haven't had the chance to stream or do fun stuff lately...BUT, to end this on a wonderful note!
(drumroll please!) In my vacation this summer visiting relatives I had not seen in about 6 years, I had a marvelous time and to my surprise got many gifts that look something like this $$$$ right before my flight back to the US. Well... that amounted to quite a bit and I admit I spoiled myself and bought a Cintiq.. 24HD to be precise.
I have a bad habit of leaning over my previous (Intuos and before that Bamboo) tablet while drawing since my laptop adds extra space between me and my screen, so I went through many phases of back problems that never stopped as long as I continued my art habits.
Now.. problem solved! With the awesome move-able arm-type-thing of the Cintiq 24, I get to bring it to a comfortable position to draw in. And it definitely improves my work flow! I feel guilty about owning one as I guess I never dreamed of getting it in the next 5 years even.. however I can't say I would've used the extra cash for anything else!
And since my laptop has been breaking down for the past year almost with multiple overheats and random crashes, I also got a new computer that was on sale! A nice 24 inch, 32 GB RAM, Intel i7 gen 4 processor.. needless to say I'm lovin' it! My programs definitely run so much faster and the bigger screen is definitely great! Not to mention it has a DVI port while my old laptop only has a VGA port.. All in all, it was quite a deal!
I should not have a problem streaming with this bad boy so I think I'll try it out sometime in the next few weeks :3
Oh.. not to mention I have a new HD webcam which'll be much nicer for streaming traditionally thanks to the 1080p resolution XD Compared to my old webcam which was not even close to 750p resolution..
I don't generally get birthday presents on my birthday anymore so this all will probably suffice for my next decade of birthdays lol!
And as long ago requested, hopefully I can remember to take a picture of my work-area and supplies in the future! Gotta organize my more-than-messy desk first.. Hehe x___xSo yeah! Please have a good week everyone, and I'll see you with the next post~
