Singing with Charisma (4 hours)

The mind-killing schedule at work has loosened up somewhat, but unfortunately school is here again. But if I put in a couple hours every weekend, I’ll finish these eventually. Worst case, I’ll finish them in summer when I don’t have school.

I’ve been getting error messages on my computer saying “Please reinstall the tablet software”. I click OK and move on, but when I go to Photoshop the pressure sensitivity on the tablet is gone – the lines always have the same weight no matter how hard or soft I press. I went to the WACOM site and downloaded the driver for my PTZ-930 tablet. Installing it fixed the problems – until I restarted the computer. The “Please reinstall the tablet software” returned. It didn’t seem to remember that I had installed it, and to make things worse, Photoshop started asking me to register and accept the license agreement, which is something I did a long time ago. Going online showed that I was indeed registered, but it didn’t know for some reason.

I know I could just reinstall the driver every time I plan to use Photoshop, but I felt it wasn’t worth the effort. The below image was drawn without pressure. All weight variations are obtained by drawing repeatedly over the same area to widen the line.

    I think your line art might actually look better this way…

    I’ve always liked your work here. But something about this picture so far looks exceptional, I just can’t put my finger on what it is.

    FYI, if you go to Start: Programs: Accessories: System Tools: System Restore (on WinXP, might be slightly different location on Vista and Win7), you can restore your system settings to a previous date. It’s what I do when nothing else works (e.g. uninstalling any newly installing programs, scanning for malware if applicable, etc.).
