Dacker the Tracker

You woke up in a pile of dirty clothes and puke. Someone shaved a smiley face in your pubes. Grandma! The last thing you remember about last night was playing strip Mancala with the old bitch. It looks like she slipped you something and ran off with your last twenty credits. But not before she pissed in your mouth. Always with the mouth pissing. At least she's consistent.

Given her head start, she could be anywhere in the Craplands. But it's too dangerous to go out there alone. You learned that the last time.

There are only five people who can find her.

The other four are previously booked.

Looks like it's time to hire Dacker. He charges more than you like and he smells like cabbage farts. But what choice do you have?

Just be prepared - he may find more than what you were looking for.

I dunno what the hell this is. I suppose it's what I get for listening to the new Lady Gaga album while I draw.

Sketchbook Pro

I just got a copy of Sketchbook Pro on sale on Amazon for $30. So far it seems pretty easy to use but my drawings still look crappy. I like how quickly you can get to drawing and how uncluttered it is.

Drawing on the computer makes me realize I like the drag paper gives. It seems to help me control my line better. The Cintiq screen is just so baby-butt smooth. And jumping from program to program all the time is messing up my macro skills. (My keyboard hand keeps wanting to do all the buttons for Storyboard Pro.) I prefer to board on the computer now for the flexibility and speed, but for drawing and doodling I still prefer a paper sketchpad.

Here's an incredible one I found in Japan. For some reason it jumped out at me... I can't really put my finger on why.

Actually, the FO refers to the paper size. I'll really be sad when I use it up. I should've grabbed a few. Oh yeah, and the paper is nice too. It's thick and textured... hmm, with the context of the name, maybe that's not the best way to describe it.
