By far the best thing I've ever bought. by solid-alcohol
By far the best thing I've ever bought.
I was sketching last night on my new Huion GT-190; a 19" pen display monitor tablet type thing. It's all very splendid.

This thing cost me about £300 (including p&p) and is SOOOOOOOO good value for money, especially as the Wacom Cintiq is massively expensive. This is literally all I want from a graphics tablet though. Good size, sturdy build, pressure sensitivity, accurate digitizer if you excuse the very minor gap between pen and actual work surface, weighty stylus, and a modest price tag. Compatibility helps too but I have been having trouble with photoshop but this seems to be an issue on Adobe's end and not Huion's.

That said, I LOVE this thing and would urge anyone to go out and buy one. I'm having so much fun and I have already noticed how much better I'm drawing digitally now that I feel less disconnected than when I was using my Wacom Bamboo Pen and Touch (still a good tablet. More like a portable thing now though!)
Hardware update!

I've just purchased a new graphics tablet; the Huion GT-190.

With the Wacom Cintiq being WAAAAAAY out of my price range and pen tablet digitizing technology becoming cheaper and more accessible, I decided to give this Chinese brand a shot. Hopefully this will have a positive impact on my digital work, making drawing feel a lot more natural.

I've already had a taste of drawing on a screen with my phone (Galaxy Note 3 - which is an awesome bit of kit by the way, especially for an artist) so I'm excited to get to start working on a screen 19" HUUUUGE :D

I am excite >:)

Name change and gallery purge

Journal Entry: Fri Sep 12, 2014, 6:47 AM

So, I recently decided to change my username to something a bit more mature. I've been rocking the same handle for some 13 years or something like that (back when I was about 15) and the name had started to look a bit immature and didn't represent me in the way I wanted it to. I felt something more mature and respectable would help give me a more... professional image?

Anyway, with a new name and self image came a new gallery. I have just purged my gallery of some 120+ deviations. I was tired of seeing my really old, low standard work being shown on the 'More by...' panel on my deviations as they no longer represent my current ability. I feel like people would see them and not have any interest in looking at my other work.

I've been a user here for 10 years. Attention isn't something I've really been successful with and I've kind of grown out of (or grown tired of) looking for it. If people like my work, they will follow me. If not, it's cool. DA is a heavily populated and competitive place. The best I can do is present myself and my work in a way that shows me as a bit more respectable rather than... what I was.

I've also finally been dipping my toes into the forums; a place that I was kind of bewildered by. It's fun to go out and interact with other artists and have an actual discussion rather than posting your work and hoping people will come. It's like arranging a party and not telling anyone about it. Nobody will show up and it might just be better to go and talk to a couple of people, rather than waiting for a crowd that will never come.

Anyway, not really big news or anything. Just expect me to be around a bit more often. I was going to migrate my account to a different one but really, there's no point. I'm sorry to those who had certain pieces of work in their favourites. You won't be able to enjoy them anymore, but this is my gallery and it really needed an overhaul.

It's an informative piece (that I haven't yet read all of.) Well worth coming back to. Well done for taking the time to write it.

You are welcome!  If you like my look and ever need reference photos, I would be honored to give some to you from my private collection.  I have thousands that are not posted on dA (that also fully show my face) - everything from classic nudes to highly erotic.  Keep up the great work!

That's awesome. I was actually going to ask just that. I'd love to use your photos as reference. You have a beautiful body which you should be proud to flaunt! Thank you. I'll be in touch I'm sure :)
