Pinned toot

A Word of Caution... don't be like me & buy the wrong hook-ups. The tablet has a cord that goes from two USB + HDMI to USB-C to work.

Being low on those ports, I bought a USB-C hub that takes care of all that... forgetting that I use a graphics card for my video. And my CPU has no built-in graphics chips to run my on-board stuff.

So my USB-C port - my last open on-board port - can't output video. The rest of the hub works but I needed an adaptor for vid.

Double check that Before you buy. -.-

Yet Another Tablet Update!:
It's been a few days w/ the XP-Pen Artist 12 Pro & I've played w/ it a bit. Nothing too crazy, just taking care of some things I'd have normally taken care of on my Tablet PC thingie instead of on my Main system (read: Where all my art & reference is).

1st Impressions - A solid unit. It's quite the upgrade from my other devices. No multi-touch but it come w/ a free glove & stand. Great response times, colors & pressure lvls, too. A Lovely little beast, indeed. = )

TABLET UPDATE! :
After doing a few days worth of looking into reviews and current prices, I ended up ordering an XP-Pen Artist12 Pro. I was going to roll with the Huion Kamvas Pro 12 as both products seem to get pretty solid scores for a small penabled screen (when the Kamvas has the latest firmware update) but the price was slightly better with the XP-Pen.

It should be in sometime Sunday.

Thanks for everyone's suggestions! You folks rock! = )

Hey MastoArt folks, I got a question!

I've been looking at digital art stuff lately and I Think I'm ready to pop for a proper Cintiq-styled tablet. I love my Tablet PC thingie but my new rig has more than enough HP to survive digital work while streaming where my poor MogNet Tab PC doesn't.

Any suggestions for a small dedicated pen-abled screen? Not looking for an iPad setup, just a screen to directly work on at home.

Alrighty! The stream went off w/out too many issues. Not a lot of dropped frames, things ran way smoother than before. My new rig handled streaming like a champ.

Unfortunately, I need to fix my programs so I can quickly/easily do stuff. You know... the fun part. -.-

The one non-Biff pic I was working on for January is sitting at 600dpi so... double my standard working res. I like to stay around 300dpi as it's printable while remaining small-ish but I wanted to try for bigger this time around.

Ha HA! It's been a fun few weeks. -.-

I'd love to do oine of those warnings about an art flood after trying my best to stay offline to work on things but... yeah. No. Not this time. I did get a couple of things started & the usual comic stuff so there's that. I'll get that up once I finish a little more work (And scale down some of these working files 'cause They Big).

Verdict: It Worked! = D

I still dropped frames during the stream but that's more 'cause I didn't do my normal pre-broadcasting stuff like killing every stray process that wasn't needed. The real test was seeing if I straight up lost connection again. Thankfully, that didn't happen.

Now I just need to save for a proper parts swap. My trusty CPU from 2013 isn't getting much love from my newer programs.

Been offline for a bit (hence the lack of comic updates despite a new one having been up for a week) taking care of things & stuff. Not a fun time away but time away nonetheless.

But I'm Back! And I'm going to attempt a broadcast. Going to be doing the text & tones on the next Biff strip. And yes... I'll post the normal details for the last one 'cause I messed up & left here & my strip's devArt mirror hanging!

Bringing it all in with Part 4! : sillyvamp.com/?strip_id=50

Out of all the strips I've done over the years, this story bit still makes me smile. It's also the only one I'd absolutely love to redo at some point. As much as I dig it... it really does show its age. = P
