GOT A NEW HARDDRIVE!

Journal Entry: Tue May 13, 2014, 11:01 AM


Just wanted to quickly inform everyone here that as of today I have a new Harddrive that I will install in my computer very very soon (probably today even) and that because of this, new pictures and work on models will have to be delayed for probably a week until I have this system in fully working order again.
This is absolutely necessary btw. my Computer is as slow as a slug, it takes over 10 minutes for it to be usable once I hit the power button and I have barely any space free (right now I have 10 GB of free space left on a 1TB HDD), and a simple reinstall of the OS won't do me any good either since I don't want to delete a majority of stuff just to get a few gigs of space again.

Hopefully this will also improve performance for games a little! ^^

The New Harddrive is a Western Digital "Blue" WD10EZEX, its again a 1 TB Capacity one and has 64MB of Cache on board. My current Samsung one that came with this PC has lasted me for 4 years and still does, but I feel it's time to upgrade before it starts to fail on me one day.

Only one thing left for me to figure out, I wanna connect the new one as a primary (master) Harddrive and the old Samsung one, at least temporarily, as a secondary (slave) one so I can grab all my stuff from it over the configuration period.

With that said, I hope you guys will understand. :)

Hey!  Love your Copic works!  Picked up a few of my own a couple of months ago, so I'm hoping to learn a bit from your own foray into them!

Cheers!

Thanks! :meow:
The markers are great so far, easy to use and mostly streak free. Blending though, that's what I'm struggling with, I kinda understand it but at the same time not really. ^^;
I doubt you're gonna learn much from me, but who knows, I'll make sure to share what I learn as I continue to work with them.  ;)

From my (very little!) experience with the markers, blending and other effects like that become much easier when the paper becomes completely soaked, which is much easier (and less costly) on decent marker paper (I use Strathmore 500 series Marker paper).  The bleeding issue you were talking about in "Calpain Says Science!" is also much less prevalent on the good paper, too.  But I'm sure you already knew all that :)

I'm sure I'll learn a lot from you.  According to your webcam image over there, you've been 'hooked on drawing' since well before I was born, so I think that learning about these things vicariously through you, so to speak, would expedite my own learning!

Actually, that's a bit of a gag, I was born in 1989, I just wrote that since I've pretty much been drawing stuff since I can remember. ;)

I actually have marker paper here, you probably know about it, Copic's own "My Bleedproof Marker Pad" paper. it really doesn't bleed much on it and through it since it has this film on the back of the paper. But blending on it is even harder and the Blender doesn't have much effect on it either if I want to do effects or push colour back into the lines (it smudges and just makes a mess).
I've been hearing that many people use Canson Comic & Manga Paper for their Marker pictures, but I also heard that it does bleed on it and also through the paper itself.
I'm mainly interested in paper that's cheap and has good quality (and works well with the markers), the Copic one has 50 sheets and costs 6 Euro, it's the paper I used for "Maud Pie!" and "Sweetie Shopping!".
I like the Copic paper to a degree, the colours are rich on it, I save ink with it since it's very thin, I can easily trace drawings (even pencil ones) without using my light table. But like I said, blending and Blender effects on it are tough, and while the thinness is great, I like thicker paper a lot more.
I wish shops would give away free paper samples, it would make things much easier!
