First update in a while. Been busy; now getting back into the swing of things.

Got a Cintiq 13HD a couple of weeks ago. At first, it didn't seem enough of an improvement to warrant its price tag, given that I already own an Intuos 5. However, finally got around to using it with Painter, and found the experience substantially improved. So it's a keeper. :D Time to put the Intuos up for sale...

Thanks for the livestock to the reserve Llama Truck

I appreciate your recent foray into the politics forum and your points about culture.

I likewise appreciate your post of support. :beer: Internet debates tend to be futile, but many impressionable minds lurk on dA, and I'd hate to see something irrational and irresponsible like that go unchallenged.
