that sucks. Sorry I don't really do much anymore artwise or I would participate more in everything.

Every once and a while I'll doodle and fail unfortunately. Like recently I was inspired to try the "imitate an art regs style" thread and came up short in my attempt to do a laserkarl tribute. Someone else did one with his style tho and it came out really nice.

If i can steal my parents scanner i'd have an easier time just to do my line work on paper, scan it, then color it in psp. This would probably make my ideas less of a hassle since I'm a perfectionist and get fed up when I try to draw something in my head on the computer and it looks like shit and I scrap it. I tried using a tablet but its really small and I'm not too good with it.

On another subject, I was just wondering if I could get your take on the pivot thread. I get a lot of hints that pretty much a lot of people hate it, but mostly I guess it's just ignored and people just accept the fact that its there. So im just wondering what everyones opinion is on it (i don't mind if you hate it)

I find it as an interesting medium because your challenged with making artwork with just dots and lines with the added bonus that u can give movable joints and make a little movie with it. Some focus more on the movie part other like to get more detailed, just depends on the person.

Sure this results in the inevitable stick guy, but even some stick men are creatively thought out and not just a bunch of lines slapped together.

So yeah just curious.

There's a Help/FAQ page for a reason.

Hey, I'm planning on getting a tablet. Well actually I'm planning on ordering it tonight. I'm planning on getting this Bamboo tablet. I'm planning on using it just for sketching, nothing serious. Please tell me if this is a good choice or if you know of another good tablet around the same price range.


I need Monet, to buy DeGas to make my Van Gogh. I tried to Hale a cab but my Whistler didn't Turner 'round.

I'm using the exact same one right now (well, this one is black), but I really like it!! I had just gotten a second Graphire3 for home shortly before they got me this Bamboo here at work, and I'm regretting my purchase! I like the Bamboo a lot better for some reason. Damn my impatience!! lol

Get it! And have fun!! :D

Thanks, what size is yours? And is it big enough? I'll probably get white, I have no idea why I just want it..

It's the small size, whatever that is (same size as a mousepad). It's the only size I've ever worked on so I can't honestly say if bigger is better in this case, but it just seems like it'd be a waste of desk space. I know some people like to hold them on their laps while they work though, so, yeah.

The first one I ever got was white too... it matched my keyboard! lol :P

Well. I don't know if you guys like starfighting or whatever, but my deviant art page has a few starfighters on it. I'm sort of in a holding pattern here though because I ran out of ideas, but if you want, give me some suggestions and I can make you your own custom starfighter. :) (link to my deviant art page is in my signature.

Hey, forumites, It is in my signature, but ppl apparently think I am joking. But no, pm me if you have any art related questions rather than making a thread that will just be locked. I will give you advice if I know the answer, or find out the answer and get back to you.

Didn't mean to drag this up from the depths, but didn't know where else to post this. If anyone is interested in the next doubles showdown, it is going to be a bit over a week before I post it up, since I'm going on vacation. I think a little break in between is good anyway, to hopefully peak some interest in everyone again when it comes back.

I was thinking along the lines of Dr. Seuss or Mother Goose type stories (all levels of appropriateness welcome), where you guys write 'em, and an artist from the art forum does the illustrations. We'd throw a few together and submit (a few to ensure that all Writers and Artists are coauthored). We could pick a day, say ...sometime in January? Sort of like a clock or madness day... we could even have a custom preloader, narration, and use that page turning animation thingy, you know the one! :P

I just think it could be a great opportunity for people that don't know flash but have amazing writing/illustrating skills to get some love!! ...what do you think? good idea? ...horrible idea?? ...no one cares?

Above is a post I made in the writers club/crew thread. Figured I'd throw it in here too to see if it's something anyone would actually be interested in ...from an illustration standpoint. There were no takers on the writers side, so we might have to write our own shit. Comments?

It is an intriguing idea - especially since I have no flash skills whatsoever.

Do like the idea v. much. I'm probably not able to write anything though apart from some gay, gut-turning dribble.

Well you already got my PM and responded and everything, but I will show my support here that if anyone needs a writer then I will try my best. The subject isn't really my strong points, but I can adjust my writing habits a little bit. If anything it will help me out changing things up a little.

Tablet help, plz.

Dudes, my tablet is totally fucked i'ts self right up it's own arse.

Anyone know a good store, online or not, to buy one?
One that will be compatible with the pressure sensetivity in flash CS3, because this one currently isn't. (Too old or something.)

I've looked in local stores and on the internet.
But all I can find is those rubbish A5 ones.

The thing I loved about my old one was that it was 1:1 to my monitor.
Makes life easy.

It's size is; 22.8cm x 30.4cm
That's about 9" x 11"

Any help?
