Dunno if I have the same problem. In my case it's just laziness. I didn't do any drawing practices for weeks (except for trying fur and hair one day) and if it wasn't for the friday flood, I would not draw anything at all.


Maybe after a thrilling Friday Flood, we should have a Saturday Stickam.

Yeah and after chilling for the sunday we can discuss everything in a Monday Mumble and after the regular Tuesday Timing we should try new things in a Wednesday Workout....


Just kidding, it sounds like an interesting idea

The worst part of having artist block is when you are so inspired to draw something but don't know what. JohnnyUtah's line thing makes me want to draw so badly but idk man idk

Meh, im not too fond of his sound, its awfull flat, and his phrasing is just terrible. Hes playing his sax like it is a keyboard.

I thought the whole thing was lame. They went overboard on trying to make things seem cool. That violin part introducing it was simple and unflattering to the song. What was with the violinist rotating while playing? Added to that, there's the fact that an LED bow is hardly practical. You should never sacrifice sound for appearance.
As for the sax part, I'm not impressed in the least. The intonation is lacking, the rhythm and notes are simple, and I've heard so much better.

The year before, a violin playing and singing dude won, so they wanted to jump the bandwagon and put the emphasis on the violin.

And after Germany won with "Lena", there will be many young crazy singing girls with a wierd english accent, next year. JUMP THE BANDWAGON

Ok, so nobody seems to like the song.
But you have to admit, Epic Sax Walrus is pretty epic.

Well the song is not bad.... but not great.

You should check out, Ukraine's entry "Sweet People". At first I thought another blonde Britney.... but I was wrong.

I know she's not a perfect singer, but still.

Yeah, it is.

The reason I don't like the song is because I'm looking at it through classically-trained-tinted goggles. I feel like you shouldn't be getting paid to play the violin if you're not at least good enough to play something like this.

For the record, I'm not a fan of Mozart, but I love the way this guy does solos.

Anyways, it's not a terrible song if you like pop music. Just nothing spectacular.

Just gonna go on the record and also say that I'm also fixating way too much on the violin part. Sorry for that. I'm a violinist, so it's a big deal to me.

I feel the same disdain towards Yellowcard.

Hahaha, I hear ya man.
My cousin is a violinist, moved on the viola, and went to UBC for it, and now lives out there looking for gigs and what not.

It's funny because I only got attached to that collab like 2 weeks ago, yet I still got co-auth'd.
I'm so awesome.

I don't like it, too many sprites. The ones with voices were pretty funny. I really wish there were more good collabs and that more of the good animators and perhaps artists visited the forums.

Alright then, question 2, does the graphics card you have installed now have enough power to run the tablet properly?
It's either something to do with graphics providers or your tablets fucking up in some way

I'm genuinely out of ideas, however, if it's only 2 months old, it should still be under the manufacturer's warranty/any warranty you may have purchased when you bought it, so if it is busted, a replacement shouldn't be too difficult to get, no matter how inconvenient.

I don't own a Cintiq, so I'm just browsing a few sites.

This forum suggests that you
- Check that you're getting a signal to your tablet, or your monitor.
- Reinstall your drivers,
- Check that you haven't bust your graphics card, or the pins in your connectors, or
- See if you're getting enough power for the job.

This DeviantART thread suggests
- You check your display settings, and
- You buy some extra kit.

Out of interest, what Operating System are you using, and is it on a laptop?
