Cyrene in her fancy duds. by NKato
Cyrene in her fancy duds.
Figured I'd do a human version of her in some clothes.

Holidaymas 2014
Here's Cyrene (a derivative of Ophelia and Na'amah) from my Demon's Debt project, wearing that meme-tastic keyhole sweater, and a santa hat. Because she was feeling a little bit festive. Because. Reasons.

Yeah.

Cintiq has returned and I am back in action. Oh, and studying A+ alongside CryEngine.
I've been told that my Cintiq will be in the shop for a week, maybe less, maybe more. So I've got other things to keep me preoccupied - such as studying CryEngine. Oh, and studying for A+ certification, as well.
Welp... by NKato
Welp...
My Cintiq 13HD seems to have decided to quit powering on. It's still recognized by the PC as a legitimate output device, but when I push the power button on it, it just won't turn on. I did a lot of research today trying to figure out what went wrong, and it turns out it could be either the A/C Adapter kicking the bucket (unlikely), or it could be the power button that decided to break. It's a membrane button, not an actual mechanical button. Membrane buttons break easily with frequent use, while mechanical buttons are much more resilient.

This is a huge kick in the balls for me. The tablet hasn't paid for itself because I'm still struggling to find a way to make my art pay for itself (contributing to my woes, not enough people are interested in commissioning me, despite my efforts to raise my visible profile, however mediocre). $1,000 is a lot of money to me. It could easily pay for two months' of rent, or keep my stomach filled for half a year. To have a product by a company that supposedly prides itself on quality construction, break or be defective, or develop problems four times in less than two years...that's not a good thing.

With these problems, in addition to the lack of interest from the art-purveying public at large, I'm seriously having doubts about whether or not being an artist would have been a good idea. Doesn't help that depression has decided to sit in the back seat and give me shit for the past year.

So, in the end, I should be still under warranty, but having such a tremendous disruption like this is a huge blow to my morale. Sometimes, I just want to give up.

And before you ask, the doodle was done on an Intuos 4...after having used a tablet like the cintiq, I honestly can't get comfortable with the Intuos at all. Plus, I do not wish to return to the days of suffering from knuckle pain for weeks on end.
