Wanna read a new science fantasy that's overflowing with intrigue, adventure, and colorful characters you’ll love (and a few you’ll love to hate)? Then check out my latest novel, STEEL CITY, VEILED KINGDOM.
Excerpt in thread.

I've been drawing these characters for years, and now their story's out!

Left social media as a productivity experiment, and really dug the results. So instead of hanging around Masto, I'll just forward my art (and ebook release posts) from

Anyone know of a good way to update an ancient story to the modern version?

I had to take a little break for health reasons, but now I'm fit again and ready for more art! Tried something completely new today.

I know some artists here use SketchUp to help with their scenery and perspective; are there any web-based applications (or ) that y'all use? I need to make a room and be able to float a camera around in it so I can use the model for reference. I'm warily eyeing , but it looks awful complicated.

Anyone else nervous about upgrading Linux Mint 19.3 to 20? I know @9to5linux has an easy guide, but Easy Linux Tips Blog (easylinuxtipsproject.blogspot.) is saying to avoid an in-place upgrade.
I'm super happy with where my system is now, I'm not sure I want to mess with things. :C Advice?

Any 'donners out there have recommendations for budget PC speakers with subwoofer (2.1)? Mine, from like, 20 years ago, are acting finicky. Used to be if a wire wasn't in just the right place, the left speaker would go out. Now it's just worse, if I bend the wire wrong to fix it, sometimes the whole thing goes haywire (plays sound TOO LOUD and the power light is off).
I miss Radio Shack.

Just released a new short novel, called THE CAPRAMANCER NEXT DOOR. A down-to-earth mage and her magical goats must save their new neighbor from being mulched in this new upbeat fantasy adventure!
@GoatsLive (who helped me get my goat facts straight) called it "A great read!"

Can anyone help me find this YouTube art tutorial I watched?

It was an easy way to improve your digitally-painted skintones by making your midtone warmer and darker than you'd expect, then erasing your highlight layer on top. Gave it a really warm core shadow, it looked really good. More stylized than photogreal. I think the guy was working on a cute girl in a bikini or something barely-there. He did three different variants, too.

Same with , come to think. Can't tell if I got it from the repository (and it's just slow to update) or if I downloaded the file from the official Inkscape page.
I use almost every day so I want to make sure I'm updating correctly.
Hmmmmmm. 🤔

Hey users. I'm looking at my and can't tell if it's from the repository or if I grabbed a deb from the website a time back.
Is there a way to see if I installed something from a repository or not?
You know, want to be up-to-date with feature updates, bugfixes, etc.
Thanks in advance.
