It has been a long time since my last post, due to a busy and joyfull time in my personal life. But now I promise that I am back in buisness, as far as blogging goes anyway.
The last couple of days I have also been working on material for a drawing contest, which I have decided to enter. I am getting close to the end on that project by now, and hopefully it will give me a nice place, let alone some cold cash. ;) First price includes, besides a cash payment, a comission on a regular basis. The only thing that bothers me, is that the manuscripts they send me, for the comic-strips are totally NOT funny to say the least. But thats the life of a comissioning-cartoonist. I will just have to make the best of it.. So wish me luck! :)
Also my laptop is still not up and running, but things have changed a lot in that area though. Th company that was supposed to repair my laotop, lost the damn thing. So they ended up refunding the entire amount that I paid for it to begin with. This resultet in me purchassing a new laptop. I stretched the buget a little further, and ended up buying the 14" ALIENWARE, with an i7 4700mq processor, nvidia GTX 765M, and 16 gigs of ram. This should deffinetly be able to run photoshop well for quite some time. And a couple of games! ;) I promise to give a firm review of this beast when I receive it, and have it tested.
Here is a preview on the material I'm working on for the contest. The style is very traditional and kept really simple, which i deliberatly. This makes it easy to produce on a regular basis... and also the "audience" is typically quite traditional.. ;)
Take care! (And a late happy new years)
