My brand new computer is working! 8D

Thank yous to a friend of my brother's who had a spare screen lying around unused, I now have a working computer. And I even managed to get my scanner working with it! Yaaaaaaaaayyyyyyy! I just hope the colors aren't too horrible, the screen had some interesting calibrations (DA's background looked almost white when I first tested it) and I'm not sure if I got it fixed properly.

Gee, I feel so behind everything. There's three weeks worth of internet to catch up!

But hey, Pokémon.

A friend of mine hired me to help her showcase some Derwent pencils at Turku night of arts in a couple of days. Derwent Inktenses being one of the products I’m supposed to be showing off, which I’ve never even touched before. I have a package that I bought years ago, but I've never actually got around to do anything with them. Figured since I’m going to be using them to try to sell them in a couple of days, I could as well learn to! And, well, Pokémon happened.

You might be able recognise these if you've followed my Nuzlocke comic run [link] . Started out with Happy Max the prinplup posing epicly in a totally stupid place on the paper leaving plenty of space everywhere around. Then came Osamu, who's colors got a bit screwed up ("this pencil looks blue. Good enough" *inserts water on the scribble* "Oh"). ... Actually, looking at it now he looks better on screen than on paper. My scanner seems to have fixed something on the way. Then there's Auri the shiny shinx (wanted to see if the Inktenses would smudge pencil lines. Yes.) and Päike the ponyta, who turned out displaying pretty darn impressive gradient. Seems like you can do that on Inktenses. I’m liking these now.

You should at some point color your Nuts Lock pages and publish them. I would buy it in a heart beat.

I absolutely love this, mainly because I am more a colour fiend than a greyscale fiend, but ever since I saw your work I've been converted. I adore Wurr and your Nuzlocke series has made me begin my own, with hopes of drawing it as a comic to help me further my own abilities as I've been a bit lacking recently.

Wonderful work, they practically jump out of the page!

The gradient looks impressive indeed. Never used Derwet inktenses before, so, how's your opinion on them?

They are interesting pencils for sure. When dry they are softer than Derwent Studios that I'm used to, and are nothing special, but when you add water it's a whole different thing. The colors really start to shine when they're brushed with water, and once they dry, they're permanent. You can't erase or wash them away after that. A friend of mine told me that she had decorated a shirt with them.

Really? They sound really cool, special that shirt part. I use Derwet studios myself so that's why I became curious. Will give them try myself.
