So I have a new computer - YAY!



It's been about 3-4 years since I've updated my computer. My previous computer was working well, but it was high time for an upgrade. Things have been so much nicer since.

...Although I will have to upgrade my scanner as well -- since one is not 100% compatible with Macs and crashes every time I scan something... and the other is over 10 years old and the drivers cause my computer to go crazy.

So I've been sketching my strips directly in Photoshop. I'm not totally comfortable with it... but we'll see how things turn out. Let's see if you can tell a difference. ^^;

So awesome! I was just contemplating what my next computer should be, but I think I'm going to continue with just buying notebooks. If I do go back to a desktop, it'll definitely be an iMac and not a Mac Pro, though.

A Cintiq is tempting, but I'm so used to tablet that I think I should just keep it up... ^^;

It was either the iMac or the MacPro- but considering the additional cost of a monitor, space, and any other additional upgrades -- the iMac seemed to be the best bet, especially since I don't do 3D work. But the upgraded ATI Radeon video card is very nice.

The Cintiq is nice - it's less stressful to ink directly to PS, precision marking is less of a guessing game, and it's nice to have a second monitor, but it does have some cons. The color isn't as great as a real monitor, it's heavy, and it gets really hot. It's also hard to keep clean. I've a few miniscule scratches on the surface and it annoys the hell out of me. T_T; And it's definitely not portable... so I still have my Intuos3 as backup and for demonstration purposes. :D

Nice rig! Makes me wanna go buy electronics!

Dock on the side?! Your Mac is trying to be a PC!

I just wanted to say that I love how much your comic has progressed in the world. I am and was always a big fan of your art. I smiled when I saw ads to meet you guys in J-town in SF-- you're so famous now. I am so proud and happy for you, and I appreciate your talent and hard work.
