Never really found a program to calibrate my monitor properly over the years (even for my old laptop) so I 've always been resigned to using LCD laptop screens that are dull and desaturated. Well, no more!
I kinda eyeballed the settings while watching Cross Game across dual display screens until the colors matched. Now its as if I got a brand new laptop screen \o/
 The new anime seasons starts today, WOOT! If y'all are looking for dates and stuff for the new series coming up, Random Curiosity lists them on this post
 Note to self - check out:
- Random.org - no writing down numbers on chits of paper for drawings \o/ Ok, so I've never actually conducted a drawing, but its good to know easier options for the future, just in case XD
- The Typographic Work Book: A Real World Guide In Using Type In Design
- Webletter from blambot.com // Miserable from acidfonts.com (fonts used in the Hanna is Not a Boy's Name comic)
- James/Teddy/Scorpius fic: In Which Three is Also Company (OMG MY OT3!)
 Its going to take years of practice to get anywhere with my art. However, comparitively, I find it much easily to work from references (photos for drawing sketches) and even better is taking a photo and painting over it (which can really work with enough effort). The sad thing is, I've never really viewed photomanips as art in the traditional sense.
I think my favorite ones haves always been by artists who can sort of blur the line between whether its a photo or a high quality painting. I think I'll try doing a test run with a stock photo in the next week or two and see where it leads me.
 Long overdue but have finally closed my american paypal acct - no more online purchases ;_; In the long run, I know its a good thing, but it still doesn't stop me from feeling all mopey. Commissioning artists is what I splurge on and now, I'm pretty much done D:
 Was wndering if anyone has played ANY of these games: The Last Remnant | Archlord | Atlantica | Darkensang | Avencast | Pirates of the Burning Sea | Risen | Jade Empire | Fable | Pirates
Aion and Guild Wars have kinda spoilt me when it comes to eye candy and graphics, but I still want to give one of the above titles a try - just don't know which is worth it.
