Thank you very much. Yes, it's paint and canvas board.
(I did rather fancy having a dabble with digital art, but unfortunately this computer is so old and basic that it doesn't seem to have the memory/capacity to cope with that and just keeps freezing every two minutes. I don't mind too much, as I do like "real" paint, but I would have liked to have been able to have a play with digital art as well.)
What a pity! I think you'd be very good in drawing digital too But I think it's good to do a bit of both. You can learn much from traditional but play a lot more with digital. Anyway great work and keep it up
Yeah, it was quite frustrating, I saved up and bought myself a Wacom Bamboo and was so looking forward to really getting the hang of it. But as soon as I try and do something like creating more than one layer the computer can't cope and just freezes and closes the paintshop programme down.
Oh well, one day when I get a nice shiny new computer I'll blow the dust off the Bamboo and give it another go.
And many thanks for the kind words and the encouragement.
Yes, I wanted my RL to be anon from my fandom life. My sis gave out my user ID to people, and too many people knew me as texasislandr anyway, so I changed my AO3, DA, and tumblr to texasfandoodler and only left my LJ because I can lock post on there ^^
I can totally understand that. While one isn't at all ashamed of fandom artwork, that doesn't mean you want people at work etc trawling around it. (plus there is a big prejudice against fandom stuff by non-fandom peeps. There is still the trainspotter/loser prejudice attached to anything fandom.)
There was a bit on the most recent episode where Athos, Porthos and Aramis were watching D'artagnan duel, and Porthos and Aramis were moving and talking and smiling, and Athos was just standing totally still and a little apart... I find that slight distance/reserve about him very interesting as a character. (not to mention he has lovely eyes )
And many thanks for the nice comment about the painting.
Ohhh! Thank you for that site link it was exactly the type of thing that I was looking for and couldn't find. (Though still not enough Athos on it, and he's my favourite. However there is a really yummy photo of him on there that I haven't seen before and will have to paint I think.)
Thank you. I probably will have a go at the other musketeers as I've gotten quite into the series at the moment. (The first two episodes I thought it was terrible...and then suddenly it seemed to really improve and it's rather super now.)
