– Disaster. I’ve been struggling with my computer since Sunday evening, trying to get either the Yiynova to work or the Bamboo to re-nstall. After getting a replacement pen for the Yiynova on Friday I was ready to get back to doing color strips. But after uninstalling the Wacom drivers for the Bamboo pad I’d been using I havn’t been able to get the Yiynova to recognize the new pen. I eventually gave up on that, but now I can’t get the Bamboo to re-install either. This was already going to be a busy week, and I ended up wasting almost 3 days on this. And now I’m behind and have no color work to show for it.
I’m very frustrated. If I could afford it I’d junk the whole thing and go get a new computer and pad. the Yiynova works great, but it’s a nightmare to install or uninstall, and I’ve lost over a week of production time just because the pen stopped working. Worse, there’s zero documentation or support available online.
So more black and white strips. I really wanted to do this one in color too. Oh well.
– I’ll be at Kumoricon this weekend. Right now I have zero enthusiasm for it, but hopefully that’ll change once I get there. Ben Hsu and I are doing a webcomics panel at midnight on Saturday and my friends and I will be running role playing games (like Panty Explosion Perfect and Motobushido) in the gaming hall all weekend. Other than that I’ll be in the artist alley. Please stop by and say hi.
Send me an email, and let’s talk about what I can maybe do to help with this computer situation. I have class now, but in a few hours I can look over what you need and maybe figure out a way to help.
Thanks! I’m just going too sleep now, but I;ll sen dyou the details when I’m up.
I’m sorry you’re frustrated! If it helps, I’m excited for you to go to Kumoricon.
Yikes, unintended, you’ve provided me with the best Yiynova review I’ve been looking for! Hang in there, computer problems can be super frustrating.
I think I may have said before, around the colouring book time, that I DL the B&W strips to colour them myself. OK I haven’t actually done any yet, but this happens to be the most epic of all the B&Ws, I look forward to cracking out the pens, For personal use only natch. 😀
Sorry about the computer problems.
Well, I’m glad you’ll get some use out of it.
Wait, is that Carlos? Or Carlos?
Looks good anyway
Well–and I don’t want to sound facetious–with all these B&W pages being put up, you could run a Medusa Fan-Fill contest. People would take a stab at coloring one or more (of your excellent B&W) pages, and submit them. Your final, personally-colored work would be canon, of course. It would be interesting–and potentially fun–to see how other people interpret your work.
That’s a neat idea.
That’s why I stick with pencil, pen and paper. I don’t have to worry about those things crashing, having incompatible drivers or not recognizing each other and then requiring a system upgrade. Folks can say what they want about low-tech methods, but they’ll never throw a wrench in your works!
That sucks! But it still looks good anyway. 🙂
…By the way you never replied to the email I sent you with the chibi characters attached to it. Did you ever get it?!?!?!?!?
Sorry, I got busy and forgot to reply. But they look great!
Thanks. I hope things work out better for you soon! 🙂
Yay! They aren’t dead yet!
That rope… It is Placed in such a way as to make the Comic’s title… A little less innocent than the strip actually is. If you catch my drift
GASP! Why would you point that out?!
