Re: RGB FANTASY


This is my first try at a derby, so I stuck with something simple and wearable.
Any advice for those of us stuck with an old school mouse would be appreciated.

Re: RGB FANTASY


Welcome to the crazy derby, dalekempress. awesome username, btw. big dr.who fan here, btw. I recognize this tee right off. it's the darlek tri-dimensional astrocommune signal, a coiling particle-wave that collides with recepient antennae like droplets, right?
gmv!;D

Very cool, I also gotta chime in and say, I love your screen name. I managed to watch an entire season of Doctor Who in 4 days... resulted in lots of dreams with the Doctor in them. Not that I'm complaining or anything ;-)

I like how this design looks, it manages to stand on its own without knowing the reference to the show and just look cool.

I don't know what advice I can give you about using an old school mouse, but I'd definitely suggest saving up and buying a tablet. It's totally worth it and makes designing/making art on the computer more fun and much simpler. Until then, drawing and inking designs on paper, then scanning them allows you to get crisp line art in. Mess around with it in photoshop or gimp and up the contrast can give you good line art. Coloring is easier with a mouse than line art because you can do fills which will help.

Thanks for the support! The shirt is actually not Who related, DalekEmpress is my handle on many sites (twitter, tumblr) so I used it here. You will see Daleks in the future though with the draw and scan tip. I use Illustrator for work so my Photoshop of late has been correcting/altering not creating.

For this shirt I was playing around w brushes and patterns and liked the way this turned out.

Re: RGB FANTASY


i have a bamboo tablet but can't ever get accustomed to the small pen stroke area. plus the disconnect between looking at the screen and where your hands are. really want to try those bigger ones..

i knew it wasnt' really a darlek signal ;D just joshing :D should mention though, that even tho woot has the 'out from nowhere' w the tardis crashed into the delorean, they seem to no longer be accepting anything close to copyright characters/things. who material gets rejected alot. although this derby has the tardis w clock hands. might have slipped thru because there's no text on it?

That explains why I couldn't find anything about it! Hahaha

I have a bamboo fun, costs about $200, $170 from amazon. I love it, it's got a nice big pen area, 8.5"x5.4". It does have a bit of a learning curve, but after just using it for a while you get used to moving your hand down on the tablet and seeing the mouse move on the screen. I'd have a really time entering these derbies if I didn't have it, definitely worth the purchase.

I've mentioned this before here on some other threads, but I purchased a generic tablet from MonoPrice http://www.monoprice.com/products/product.asp?c_id=108&cp_id=10841&cs_id=1084101&p_id=6251&seq=1&format=2
I was a little skeptical before buying it, but figured for $40 and the huge 10"x6.25" drawing surface I'd give it a try.
And it actually works great. Has excellent pen tip sensitivity and is recognized immediately in GIMP. Although, I couldn't get it to work with the 64bit version of GIMP, so I had to revert to the standard 32bit version.

Thanks for the tip! I've been skeptical of trying out I brand I'd never heard of. My sister has been looking for a tablet though and didn't want to front the $200, so she'll be glad to hear this.
