Carl typically does this, but I figured “why not?” So here I am, saying hello and good morning. How was everyone’s weekend? I had a good one. I took it easy and played with my tablet all weekend. It’s very comfortable to surf the internet on the couch while listening to your mp3s through your TV using the power of the Xbox combined with Windows Media Center. 😉
As I posted earlier, it’s alot of fun to draw on. So much so that I’m alot more enthusiastic about drawing again. Drawing on paper is fine, but it’s really messy and I’m almost never happy with what I end up with. Conversely, I got pretty comfortable with the Wacom tablets I’ve used on my main desktop, but you never truly shake the disjointed feeling and you can’t turn it sideways to draw a line easier here and there. This tablet is the best of both worlds. It’s like drawing on paper, but not nearly as messy, and I can even turn it any which way I please to get those hard to draw lines down. I’ll hopefully start producing some stuff I’m happy enough with to actually show off, like some character portraits. 😉
I also spent some time on the weekend assembling tanks for my Space Marines. I picked up these printable magnet sheets to make it so that the sponsons and turrets on the tanks could be swappable, but the stuff wasn’t strong enough to hold anything in place, disappointingly. Thus, I’m looking for some REALLY small Rare Earth Magnets that I can glue in places to hold things together. I looked around online on the weekend to see about retailers near where I work/live, but couldn’t find any. I guess I’ll just have to buy them online. :S
So, how was everyone else’s respective weekends?
PS: I’ll have your monday music video up later. Just need to decide on a video. I haven’t forgotten!
