Sylvania Bowowski by gaucelm
Sylvania Bowowski
Sylvania Bowowski, a German-shepherd lady detective. She used to be part of the police force, but had to turn her badge after getting too ruthless in her investigating methods. But it doesn't matter, as she became a private investigator who has a bone to pick with crime!

Did this for a character design contest (she is inspired by VI Warshawski).
I've just bought a new tablet today to replace my old Bamboo CTL-460. (Just because the latter's cable is damaged at its base, causing it to disconnect frequently.)

That new tablet is a Wacom Intuos CTH-480. And after installing it, already it is awkward and irresponsive.

I tried to set up the pen options so that the sensitivity and speed is to my liking.

I try to put everything on "firm" to be more comfortable with it.

But the pen. Just. Lacks. Pressure.

It is weak and doesn't "click" like a normal pen.

I try to click links, close windows, select things by pressing once. 2 out of 3 times it does nothing.

I try to draw simple lines in Photoshop, but the lines are too thin and light.
Even if my Brush Tool pressure size is quite big and I press hard, it doesn't do the full circle: it barely does half.

This is unsettling, awkward and very annoying.

I have tried to go to "Services" several times to restart the "Wacom Professional Tablet Service". I have done this dozens of times, and it doesn't improve things (except the odd times where the pen does the classic trick of losing all pressures and making only even lines).

Can anybody help me on this? I tried to Google for answers, but can't find anything to help me.

Thank you so much.
Slimer by gaucelm
Slimer from The Real Ghostbusters with some Ecto-Cooler!

I loved this cartoon as a kid (didn't know the original movie!); I never had a chance to try the Ecto-Cooler drink, though (wasn't sold where I lived).

On my French blog… and English one…
Mattyreyrey Banner by gaucelm
Mattyreyrey Banner
I have been paid by YouTube user Mattyreyrey to draw a banner for his YouTube channel, where he does Let's Plays. You can see it here:…
(the banner can be fully seen by TV)

He asked me to draw him (he's in the middle) with characters from Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, League of Legends (thus Katarina) and Minecraft (thus a zombie, and cubes, and planet). I have never played these games, but that's no problem! He was very nice.

Fully drawn in Photoshop!

On my blog:…
  • Mood: Artistic
  • Listening to: A Dream Worth Keeping
  • Reading: Three Young Investigators
  • Watching: Back To The Future
  • Playing: Sexy Parodius
  • Eating: McDonald's
  • Drinking: Coca Cola Zero
Hey, didn't upgrade my journal, like, a freaking long time.

I still need to finish the illustrations for a book. And I've less than a month to do it. Thank goodness, I have time for that. So that means, you're not going to see much new stuff for the moment.

I am now 28 and am decided to be more disciplined with my life and handle my priorities with more seriousness.

I have moved to a new apartment which I feel great in, so I can go on a fresh start.

I am also on my last year of studies so I cannot really afford to goof around.

So yeah, a bit of the same stuff I said in the last journal, but I mean it more this time. :D
