Tablet works now  
Thanks to everyone that gave me advice on my tablet. It works now and the problem was I had to download the driver from the website. It's stupid the drivers and software on the CD's aren't any good. It worked in Illustrator but not in Photoshop. How dumb, but now it does work in photoshop. I mostly want it to be presure sensitive there for my shading. But as far as inking I'm looking forward to inking and outlining in Illustrator for once. Holy cow, never thought that would happen. Those of you that have been here a while know how I belly ache about inking real or digital. Gosh I hope having this new tablet will help me to make my art faster. I already have a budgie drawing that I'm going to try it out on. I drew it while waiting on a job with Chris. I'm also hoping that one day I can make a drawing really cool and completely on the computer. It would be so cool to not use paper again unless I want to. But I think I'm still quite a ways away from that. And hopefully this will make redoing the Cope and Thanatos picture much easier. I need to learn how to make brushes in Illustrator now.

I got about half the stuff mailed out today. I hope Chris will have time to take the rest out to the post office tomorrow. And I'm very excited about getting those sheet music CD's. I can't wait to start playing more metal. Chris taught me a new key. I'm now doing D major so I have to practice that and it's in the 5th position. That's weird. AND I'm working on a new 80's song. I'm working on Jessie's Girl. I love that song because Chris is Jessie and we've had a few morons in the place of the singer that were in love with me and jealous of Chris hehe. I love it. Losers. So that will be a fun song to learn.

Tonight and the following night will be cold. The budgies are back in the house. I'm sick of this cold weather. I want my warmth back now. Well it will be. I think the winter solstice is the 22nd. I'm not sure but I'll be so glad about that. I should make a Sorath drawing for it to celebrate the return of the sun.

Oh one last thing before I forget. Those of you that I bought paid accounts for, you should have gotten 1000 LJ tokens free. Make sure you got those and aren't getting gipped. You can use them towards 70 more user pics which is cool or anything else in the LJ store.

EDIT: Oh thanks for the card kyence! I sent yours off a few days ago so you should get it soon too.

Glad the tablet works! its usually driver related when its stuff like that although it's odd it didn't work on Photoshop when it worked on other stuff.
It will make art a lot faster although as for drawing right out on the computer, I still can't do that with big pictures lol!

Yes, it was aggravating, but I'm glad it's fixed now. Yeah that's what made no sense about it. Perhaps photoshop upgrades more often than the other programs.
Yeah, I can see how it would be hard to draw something totally on the computer.

I'm glad to hear you got your new tablet up and working. I do wish computer type stuff was easier to deal with--sometimes the least bit of a glitch will make you think the thing is possessed!
Stay warm.

Thanks. So do I. They can make it easier too. I don't know why they don't. Yeah, something so simple was preventing it from working right. :P

That's cool that you're working on "Jessie's Girl" now. I really like that song, too. It's got a great beat to it.

Yeah, unlike Anyway you want it the solo for this one is actually easier. But since it's new it's still tricky in the beginning. I think it will be nice once I learn it all.

Love that song 'Jessie's Girl'. Glad you're learning that one :)

It's one of the best of the 80's. It's fun to play so far.
