Lately when my job has gotten me down, I’ve been giving people money to draw me cute zebras, and it’s really helped my mood!
So much fun to just let other artists run wild with her, while I get to be as vague as possible about what I’m asking for.  Every time someone else draws her I think I find some new technique I want to try myself.  I just need more time to draw and less time at work.

I believe not! Their way of making people buy their stuff I guess, heh.

I WANT to buy their stuff but it’s still in beta, I actually have no idea when it will be released, hmmm. 

Considering that the reason that I had to stop using SAI was it’s atrocious handling of large file sizes…  From throwing errors when trying to transform layers, making most information on layers just delete itself, and even just refusing to open a file it had save moments before…

There is no way I’m touching a beta for a program that doesn’t test it’s most critical feature, and I’ll probably never touch SAI again.

Anyway, Manga Studio 5 does everything I ever complained about SAI lacking anyway.

Let me clear this up for all of you…

Two weeks ago, during the live Twitter event for THREE’S A CROWD, an LARGE group of BRONIES (their description) attacked Sibsy, Meghan McCarthy, and all other show staff present for the BRIEF background appearance of Flash Sentry on the train platform. He did…

Many truths contained therein.  

As fans of mini horse adventures we are incredibly fortunate to have had such unprecedented feedback and interaction with the staff, cast, and even Hasbro.  As with most things, the vast majority of pony aficionados appreciate this and conduct themselves appropriately.

But when I see people on twitter arguing with the writers and animators and voice actors- ARGUING their own head canon and expectations from the show, or worse being downright insulting and violent…

It makes you not want to identify yourself as a fan.   It takes away the jot of being part of a community.  Nobody wants to be associated with that kind of behavior. 

Again, most people conduct themselves with awesomeness.  But the ones that don’t really know how to make a show of rotten behavior. 

I’ve given up on bronies, and can’t consider myself a part of the fandom.  As a group they just react far too badly to any little thing that comes along, and it’s just embarrassing for anyone to behave this way anywhere.

I think the actions of these so called fans have gotten so atrocious that it’s affected the quality of the show they claim to love.  There is no way after more than 3 years of being exposed to the constant insults, berating, and just overall rudeness of bronies that the show staff hasn’t begun to internalize the hatred that they are exposed to and incorporate it into the show.

I haven’t really liked a single episode this season, and you know why?  Because every single episode some one acts like a jerk.  Whether it’s just one line, or the basis of the entire episode, it ruins the tone of the show. But it’s exactly how bronies behave!

Luckily, as an artist who isn’t prolific or popular, most of the brony vitriol has missed me, but the few nasty comments that come my way are about enough to make me want to just quit the internet.

Now imagine what someone who’s actually popular faces.

As whole bronies try to offend and drive off the show staff and every artist that draws for them!

You guys really need to rethink your lives.  If you can’t actually act in a civil manner, you don’t need to be in public.

Dude I’d get a lenovo x230. It’s a convertible laptop with a pressure-sensitive tablet screen. It’s a bit more convenient than a cintiq in my opinion.

I’ve gotten lots of suggestions for alternative tablets over the months, so I’d…

Having used my Cintiq Companion for just over a month now, I might as well throw my 2 cents into this conversation.

I absolutely love the thing.

It’s got me to draw more in the last month than probably the last 6 months combined.  I’ve got a folder full of in progress pictures that I want to finish, but got sidetracked by new ideas.

It’s fun to use and has a very nice feel to it.  It’s only held back by how infuriating windows 8 is to use.  But even that is rather a bonus. Because instead of getting side tracked by other things, I tend to stay in my actual drawing program more, doing actual work instead of goofing off.

It needs to have a screen protector though, because the surface has the classic wacom paper texture, which eats nibs, and causes any speck of dirt that gets under the eraser to try to scratch the screen.  This changes how it feels, but I much prefer not worrying about the screen when I’m drawing.

There are a few problems with sensitivity of the stylus around the edges of the screen, which causes it to drift away from the intended target especially around the close/minimize buttons, but for the most part while actually drawing you don’t notice this.  I’ve taken to putting tool bars either side just to keep anything I use out of the problem areas.

The battery life of this thing is also phenomenal, I’ve used it for the entire night, looked down, and realized it still had a few hours left.  Which makes it really quite  portable, and it’s nice to not have to be tethered to a cord all the time.

The two things about the companion that I find confounding are the placement of the cameras and the power button, but maybe those were made for left handed people instead of right handers like myself.  After I turned it off about three times while repositioning it, I set the power button to do nothing when pressed, since It was right where I put my hand.  One camera is positioned directly under where my arm goes while I’m drawing, and the other is half under the cover/stand, which makes it a hassle to take pictures with. 

But really, it’s an awesome piece of equipment, and it really makes drawing on a screen pleasurable.  And I for one wouldn’t even bother with a drawing tablet that didn’t have built in shortcut buttons, because really, I hit undo every other action, and it’s a waste of time if I have to hit an icon for that when I could just use my thumb.

Now I just need to keep drawing stuff so that such a fancy thing isn’t wasted on me…
