Life Cleanse - What I Did
  • Deep clean your room - I’m talking about stripping the bed, going through clothes, papers, and belongings and having no mercy. Sweeping and damp mopping the floors. Dusting surfaces. Finding new homes for those miscellaneous items that just sit there in the way.
  • Delete old contacts - I went from having maybe 30-40 contacts to 14. In other words, delete contacts you haven’t messaged or called in the last two weeks to a month (if so long). If they text you don’t be afraid or feel guilty for asking who it is.
  • Go through your music library - Play all your songs and if you skip a song delete it without hesitation. The next time you hit shuffle on your playlist you won’t even notice it’s gone. What if you get in the mood for the song? That’s what YouTube is for my friend… or just add the song back onto your phone.
  • Go through clothes - That dress you haven’t worn once in the past year- toss it. The shirt you swear fits if you don’t raise your arms- get rid of it. Those worn out clothes- dump them. *Of course there can be exceptions but within reason.
  • Journal - Write down any thoughts to cleanse your mind. Any ideas you might have. Good things that happened that day. Bad things that happened. Things you’re grateful for. It helps so much. Try it for at least three days straight and you’ll notice how much better you feel. Problems might not disappear completely but it’ll give you the strength to get through another day.
  • Don’t try to force things to work out - It’s so hard and it can be upsetting when things don’t, but sometimes the best thing you can do for you is accept the way (some)things are.
  • Don’t be hard on yourself for messing up -  It can be easy to physically or mentally punish yourself for making a mistake no matter how big or small, but I’ve learned that doing things like starving yourself, beating yourself  up (literally), or just scolding yourself repeatedly doesn’t improve the situation and it doesn’t improve yourself.
  • Cut toxic people off - Remove them from your life physically (which sometimes takes time). Unfriend them from social media. Remove prominent traces of them from your life. It’s like suddenly a weight comes off of your shoulders.
  • Practice self love -  I write/say this so often and sometimes I feel like it’s so hard to do sometimes but it’s not. I’m talking about taking a break when you need to. Drinking water. Moisturising your skin. Getting enough sleep. It’s the little things like that that count as self love.
  • Don’t runaway from your problems - It’s tempting and hard but it’s important to face any problems you’re facing. No one is saying you have to be strong 24/7, only that you should try.
  • Delete old files - Go through you computer, tablet, phone, USB drive etc. Delete old unimportant documents, old photos, music, apps and more.

Had to bring out the old tablet since my new one decided to stop working… This old tablet drew many Jasons in its day… so here is another one.

my new goal

WELP….. I FUCKED UP GUYS…

For one thing, I have already said before that I was having tablet issues. As an update I finally got my cable a week ago and have been trying to work things out. When I tried to go back on my tablet it wasn’t working correctly. So– me being the not so brillant in devices– tried to fix it. At first I thought it was the tools on Sai and tried to switch things. But nothing was happening and my strokes weren’t good or to my satisfaction. So, I thought it was the program itself. I don’t know how to really update it or update a whole system, reluctantly I thought of uninstalling my tablet drive and reinstalling it would help.

IT DIDN’T.

Now, my tablet is useless. The tablet itself is great. It connects to my computer. The tablet is nice and new. I have a new fine pen as well. Its just the drive.

What makes it worse however is that my tablet is a wacom bamboo tablet cth-470- the new one. Which is known to have problems, especially for downloading/installations. The previous owner of the tablet gave me a link that actually worked and it lasted me for 5 years so far. But now- since I installed it, it has ruined my tablet connection and none of the installations are working and has only caused me problems.

AND NOW– I have come to the conclusion guys that I can no longer digitally draw for now. I can only traditionally draw things– which of course is not bad but it is a downer.

As of right now, I made a goal now!! I am going to save up for a

Wacom Cintiq 22HD ‑ USB Graphics Tablet!!

I know its expensive– what tablet isn’t? But I hear lots of good things about it and its great for professional illustrators. A lot of artists both on here, other professionals and some companies use these cintiqs.

So, throughout the year(s) I’m going to try getting the cintiq and once I do– I’M GOING ON A DRAWING SPREE AND DRAW ALL KINDS OF THINGS!! Especially when my pateron going, I’m going to create all kinds of rewards and drawings.

I’ve never really created a donation pool or anything, but I really want to boost on the commissions so I can get enough money to buy one. I’m searching through to find a really good but cheap one. PLEASEEE If you guys can find the time or try to save up and commission me I’ll greatly appreciate it!!! (Especially as of now, I’ll boost my rules to where I do not mind drawing sexy scenes if anybody commissions me to. I really do not mind)

SO PLEASE– I WOULD GREATLY APPRECIATE IT IF YOU GUYS TRY TO COMMISSION ME OR DONATE TO ME SO I CAN BUY A CINTIQ SO I CAN GO BACK TO DRAWING WHAT YOU ALL LOVE THROUGH MY DIGITAL WORKS. WITH YOUR GUYS’ HELP, I’LL BE BACK IN BUSINESS AND WOULD DRAW ANYTHING OF WHATEVER YOU ALL DESIRE~~

Thank you for your time guys and I’m off to drawing some more and just trying to save. If you guys have questions or concerns, fill free to message or comment or note. And if you are willing to commission you can check out the page here:Again, thank you so much you guys. Love you all my friends!!

DRAWING TABLETS!

So what is a drawing tablet?

It’s a device that lets you draw digitally, but it simulates the feel of traditional media, and most digital artists use them!

They usually look similar to this:

There’s the body of the tablet, which is the “tablet” part (duh), and there’s a special pen/stylus that goes with it. More often than not, the tablet and the pen will come together, as a pair. You’d also might need a USB cord. Not all tablets are the same so make sure you check out what cable you might need before you buy the tablet. One last thing: tablets have this thing called a Driver, which is basically a kind of software that lets your tablet work on your computer. You need to download a specific driver for your specific tablet make and model. Without the driver, you can’t use your tablet on your computer at all.

Some of the fanciest ones like the Cintiq can be up to $3000, but there are plenty of tablets that are sturdy, reliable and under $70! Here’s a little list I made of some cheaper tablets I’ve heard about. This is in no way an exhaustive list, but it’ll get you started on finding the tablet that’s right for you!


This Small Wacom Bamboo is pretty much the one that I have. You can get it used for like $50. I usually wouldn’t recommend buying a used tablet, but I’ve had mine for 8 years and it’s the sturdiest piece of technology I own. It’s not anywhere near fancy but it gets the job done and bonus points for being from a reliable brand.

I’ve heard a lot about The Monoprice tablet. Apparently the driver is very difficult to install, but once you’ve got it going, it works like a dream. I’ve personally never used one but for the size and the price, it seems like a great deal.

Then there’s Turcom, another brand with a few cheaper options, around $40. The cheapest one I can find is the ts-6580, which is the same size, if not a little bigger than the small Bamboo tablet. There’s also another option with a TON of hot keys. I’ve heard from a lot of people that Turcom is a good alternative to Wacom.


Well that’s all I’ve got for ya! I’m by no means an encyclopedic source on the matter, but I hope it gave you some tips for buying a tablet!

cosmiboi  asked:

What do you recommend to use to draw digital art with a 0.00 budget

aa ok let’s see 
Imma  start from your cheapest options and work my way up 

Note: almost all of these require a laptop/ computer so i can’t help you there 

1.
A mouse 

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Mouse-2-4GHz-Wireless-Optical-Gaming-Mouse-Computer-PC-Laptop-Blue-I6T4-/282399085934?hash=item41c04c156e:g:Hm8AAOSwuxFYzQnM

contrary to popular belief, you don’t need a fancy tablet or anything like that to do digital art
i started off with a plain mouse and laptop and even though i was still learning at that time some of the stuff i made is pretty good (at least i think so)


if you are using SAI and a mouse there’s a type of layer that u can use called the linework layer and it basically makes u able to manipulate lines 

2.
Cheap Tablet 

But if you are already set on buying a tablet than for a beginner i recommend getting the cheapest and simplest one
There’s no need to buy an expensive tablet and than realize art isn’t what you wanna do.
Start simple 

Try this

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Genius-EasyPen-i405-4-x-5-5-inch-Stylus-Graphic-Tablet-with-USB-Interface-/292140537441?hash=item4404eed661:g:ufcAAOSwR29ZNJMV

It’s a GENIOUS easy pen tablet and it was the first tablet i ever had.
It did the job and was very good at it.
the only downsides are that the pen need a battery and it is a bit heavier than most 
but you get used to it 


3. 
Scanner

This ties in with the mouse kinda but listen for a sec 
if you are already used to traditional art and just wanna spice your drawings up a bit than i recommend getting a scanner

They are cheap and affordable and get the job done.
@glamist-art had a scanner for a while and she would finish her drawings with a mouse and they turned out amazing.

That’s all i gotta say about that.


  _______________


I think that’s all the advice i got 

Just remember that you don’t need some high class expensive tablet to make your art good.
You make your art good not the machine.

Good luck!

freakierthanthou  asked:

Tell me a story?

(Apparently Agent Starshine and Jason are a series now.)

The spy in the IT department needs feeding.

Ethel is good with spreadsheets, bad with her new desktop, and very good with guilty young men with obvious secrets. The first time the new IT boy comes up to help her with a virus (she’ll have to call Brian and make sure that he knows he sent her an attachment with a virus in it, he’ll be horrified), Ethel has him read in moments, from the way he walks like a bewildered lion thrown into a human body and the way he looks like his smile came out of an infomercial.

Her ex-husband went to Quantico. She can spot a special agent at a hundred paces, but this one looks sort of bewildered and obviously didn’t study up on his cover before coming to Bellwether Labs, so she’s not as annoyed by him as she is with most spies on principle.

Besides, like most men his age he clearly doesn’t know how to make anything but scrambled eggs, so she pulls out her emergency brownies and is pleased that her baking can still reduce grown men to near-tears.

Kyle: Well Stan is my super best friend so there’s lots of things I like about him. But if I have to pick one thing it would probably be…he’s always there for me I guess, I mean Kenny can be supportive. And Cartman is……Cartman. So Stan is my one friend I can usually rely on.

Kyle: Kenny is… well I worry about him sometimes. But what’s great about him is that even when really shitty stuff happens to him he almost always bounces back. He has a terrible home life, but always puts on a smile for us. Which in my book is really awesome. Maybe not so much for him but there isn’t much I can do about it.

There are a lot of things I feel about Cartman. I think he’s a fat, short, asshole who doesn’t know how to mind his own business. He’s always ruining shit and getting in the way of of everything. If something bad happens it’s usually because of something this dumbass did. But I figure you weirdos won’t leave me alone until I say something positive about him..So I guess he has nice hair. Are you happy now?

My newest Cintiq alternative review is finally ready! Today we’re taking a look at the UGee 1910b!

Why Sequencing DNA in Space is a Big Deal

… And How You Can Talk to the Scientists Who Made It Happen

Less than one month ago, DNA had never been sequenced in space. As of today, more than one billion base pairs of DNA have been sequenced aboard the International Space Station, Earth’s only orbiting laboratory. The ability to sequence the DNA of living organisms in space opens a whole new world of scientific and medical possibilities. Scientists consider it a game changer

NASA astronaut Kate Rubins, who has a background in genomics, conducted the sequencing on the space station as part of the Biomolecule Sequencer investigation. A small, commercial, off-the-shelf device called MinION (min-EYE-ON), manufactured by Oxford Nanopore Technologies in the UK, was used to sequence the DNA of bacteria, a virus and rodents. Human DNA was not sequenced, and there are no immediate plans to sequence human DNA in space.

The MinION is about the size of a candy bar, and plugs into a laptop or tablet via USB connection, which also provides power to the device. The tiny, plug and play sequencer is diminutive compared to the large microwave-sized sequencers used on Earth, and uses much less power. Unlike other terrestrial instruments whose sequencing run times can take days, this device’s data is available in near real time; analysis can begin within 10-15 minutes from the application of the sample.

Having real-time analysis capabilities aboard the space station could allow crews to identify microbes, diagnose infectious disease and collect genomic and genetic data concerning crew health, without having to wait long periods of time to return samples to Earth and await ground-based analysis.

The first DNA sequencing was conducted on Aug. 26, and on Sept. 14, Rubins and the team of scientists back at NASA’s Johnson Space Center in Houston hit the one-billionth-base-pairs-of-DNA-sequenced mark.

Have more questions about how the Biomolecule Sequencer works, or how it could benefit Earth or further space exploration? Ask the team of scientists behind the investigation, who will be  available for questions during a Reddit Ask Me Anything on /r/science on Wednesday, Sept. 28 at 2 p.m. EDT. 

The participants are:

Dr. Aaron Burton, NASA Johnson Space Center, Planetary Scientist and Principal Investigator

Dr. Sarah Castro-Wallace, NASA Johnson Space Center, Microbiologist and Project Manager

Dr. David J. Smith, NASA Ames Research Center, Microbiologist

Dr. Mark Lupisella, NASA Goddard Space Flight Center, Systems Engineer

Dr. Jason P. Dworkin, NASA Goddard Space Flight Center, Astrobiologist

umhgh

|| i got a new computer. which is lit. buttttt…………. since its newer than my tablet, the usbs or whatever arent compatible. idk. so all art is on hold for now! im really sorry!
