A sketch a day...

As part of a birthday present to myself, I got the upgrade to ArtRage 2.0, which makes painting on the computer at last possible (in a price range I can afford). But it's still a question of mimicking the subtlety of hand/pencil gestures with an aged Apple (wired) optical mouse. Pressure-sensative tablets have gotten cheaper and smaller, but only after I've run out of funds, and they're damned hard to find in the middle of the Baltic. So I'll struggle along with what I've got to learn the basic skills - there are surprising levels of complexity in the software now. I'm not displeased with the above, although it seems to be my one and only standard subject these days (la recherche des temps perdu).
