Colin found his old Wacom Tablet from his home in MA and let me borrow it for a while for me to play and experiment with. Tried to install the Wacom on my laptop last night after work, and the installation software it came with was oooooooold, so it took me a while to get it off my machine and then for me to download the latest version from the Wacom website. But after that, it was smooth sailin'.
So yeah, above is my first ever Wacom drawing! Which is why it's a little meh-- could use way more work. The brushes/pressure takes some getting used to, and overall I just need to get more familiar with what Corel is capable of, and WHERE the various drawings tools ARE in Corel. I'll keep practicing.
But anyways, had a great weekend up in MA at the Radville's in Cape Cod (Sandwich), met some more of Colin's high school friends. Good times, lots of fun, lots of relaxing. Lots of poker and bocce. Since around, what, 13 of us were there at various times during the long weekend, Colin and I set up my new tent in the backyard to sleep in-- and also broke out the new air mattress-- in the open space to the left of the depicted hammock, actually. Maybe I'll edit the drawing later to include the tent. It was actually a really comfortable and gorgeous (was woken up at 6AM Saturday morning so I could "see the sunrise") place to sleep.Well, the edit will have to come much later, since I probably won't get to play with the tablet tonight at all-- darn school!
