Going to put some W.I.P. stuff up here, I normally work in Blender making 3D dinosaur related stuff but I’d like to focus a bit more on drawing for a while.
The monitor died on my desktop PC so I’ve been mostly off-grid for the past few weeks. Rather than replace it I got myself a pen display from XP-Pen. It’s only 15.6". At some point I’ll need a new full size screen but my puny 13yr old PC is a bit laggy supporting 2 displays (it’s been tried).
I made a little frame to hold the screen upright for general use but allows it to be unclipped and placed flat when I want to draw with it. It’s a bit of a rough prototype but I’ll probably refine it at some point.
So lately I haven’t done much creatively but I’m sort of up and running again and keen to see how the pen display compares with my Surface-Pro.
As it happens I’m putting the dinosaurs away for a while. My grandson No. 2 now has his own bedroom and he’s asking for a Paw Patrol mural so that’s what I’ll be working on next, designed in Krita of course. I’ve measured the space and I’m gearing up for design and layout.
