I recently got a new computer last month after my old one died on me. Its a nice swanky Alienware Aurora. Its not top of the range, but its 10x more powerful than my old one which was drastically overdue an upgrade.
I found that openCanvas3 didnt work with windows 7 so I pruchased SAI Paint Tool (which I had been meaning to get for a while anyway) and like it very much. The lineart layer in particular is very handy with its vector control points.
I'm just happy to have a computer that will let me draw art again without running dead slow or crashing. For a while I was forced to do art on my DS using a homebrew app. >>;
I'm having a go at the Pixiv Fantasia IV thing with a few friends, it seems like alot of fun even though I dont really understand the half of it. Lemmie know if theres any other fellow english speaking PFIV participants out there, especially if you feel like joining an evil pirate crew of sorts for the star/meteor fragment side. Come to the dark side, we have cookies and boobies!.
