Elements 13 works great- Podcast 69

And another podcast. We phonily discuss the shoot for Hobo's Brindle ( we just stopped for 10 seconds and faked our reactions to what occurred the next day.)
This makes me appreciate the effort Marty puts into his personal commission work.
This kind of stuff kicks my butt. I'll post the color version here as well.
Things were going dandy. Then the iMac started to slow down.
I suspect that using PURGE on photoshop did something to it. Of course I only started using PURGE after the computer slowed down to PC 286 speeds.
It may be the Imac 's last hurrah. I hope not.

It won't boot past the apple right now. Can't get to it to mess with and fix it.

The painting was going OK. I used reference pictues and then filtered them 1. with brush strokes- 2. with cut out. Gave me a nice limited color swatch selection to play with.

The finish. Done partially with Elements 13 and the monoprice tablet.
My commissioner may acquire CS6 for me.
If he does that, he gets a freebie commission. Definitely.

Field tested the new pen for the old monoprice graphic tablet.
Worked great. The drawing is nothing but messing for a solid half hour.  Lots of other imagery went before this doodle. The pen now works and keeps working.

I sent for a replacement pen for the monoprice tablet. For 10 bucks, that may end up being a genius idea. For the short working window it makes a good tool. But the working window tends to be about 5 minutes of time. It is likley the pen. I forgot and twisted it several times to get it apart. It's a simple pull apart design. Probably made the connections short prone.

This guy really likes his girlfriend. Good for your commission stream. Pray that they never break up.

The one with Supergirl is just a good friend. This is for the real girlfriend. The first and only one for this girl.

I hacked away for about an hour. In Elements there is no way to achieve the line art trick with locked transparent pixels. I checked Chennel selection in Elements on the internet. One of the things it doesn't do.

Elz, this commission thing is great...but the next page needs to be coitus...and post-coitus.

OK, that's working too blue for this family website. And now Blair's reading over my shoulder--she'll be appalled!

I have to listen to the the one cast whee you discuss the pre-shoot planning was all FAKED???

Oh, boy.

Great work on Tumblr lately Marty. Yes, we took about a minute bbreak and started another podcast where we rave about how well the shoot went. We weren't far wrong actually. I just listened to it. We should have brought Chris into it more. But it's good if you have a podcast to have a guy like DL Nelson. He's smooth, can always be talking.

Davis Chino said...

But wait--did you record both podcasts AFTER the filming--or before???

I'm confused.

MrGoodson2 said...

Recorded both podcasts before filming. Faked the post filming evaluation.
