JFC I SHOULD BE ASLEEP ALREADY
but i had this idea in my head and it wouldn’t get out, so yeah. it occurred to me that i never explained what ‘paps your face with love’ meant (not that ‘paps’ actually means anything except for like…pap smears maybe LOL) but this is more or less what I have in mind when i type it out to people.
also some alice because she needs some love.

Tired of dealing with your Wacom tablet losing sensitivity all the time? I figured out a quick fix for this a while ago but never remembered to share it in any shape or form, so here it is for everyone who’s fed up with having to restart their computer every time it happens. 

**Please note that the specific instructions are for Windows users, but I’m sure it won’t be too hard to figure out the Mac equivalent of them**

This method takes a bit of pre-planning, but it’s more than worth it in the long run. The first thing you want to do is to go to your Start menu, and navigate as follows:

Start menu > All Programs > Wacom > Wacom Preference File Utility

image

The above window will pop open. At this point, you will want to click Backup… to save a copy of your current preferences. This should be done while your tablet sensitivity is still working.

The file saving window + file will look something like the image below (Backup.tabletprefs). Try to save it to somewhere that you will have quick access to and won’t forget about. In my case, I just chose my Pictures folder.

image

…And that’s mostly it! Sort of. The next time your tablet loses sensitivity, save your drawing files, close your drawing applications, and go back to that Wacom Preference File Utility to perform the following steps:

1. Click All User Preferences > Remove

2. Windows may ask you if you want to allow Wacom to make changes to your computer. Click yes.

3. When the preferences are removed, the window will automatically close itself. 

4. Open it up again. This time, hit My Preferences > Restore…

5. The file navigation window will pop up. If it isn’t there already, find where you saved the Backup.tabletprefs file and double click the file.

6. Wacom will ask whether or not you want to replace your current preferences. Click Replace and let the program run. When it is finished, a small window will pop up to state that the restoration was successful.

7. That’s it. That’s the whole process. Shouldn’t take more than a minute or two, really. Feel free to start up your art programs again and get back to drawing!

Disclaimer: I cannot and do not guarantee that this will work in all cases, because all I know is that it works for me and the few people that I’ve shared this with. Settings may differ slightly with newer Wacom products.

If you like this post and/or it works for you, please feel free to share it! Hopefully it’ll save some people the grief of having to reboot their computer every time this happens. ; v ;

my end of an art trade with lileekat and quite possibly the only completed drawing I’ve done in a very long time.

ten books meme

as tagged by skyvault e v e <3

Rules: In a text post, list ten books that have stayed with you in some way. Don’t take but a few minutes, and don’t think too hard —- they don’t have to be the “right” or “great” works, just the ones that have touched you. Tag ten people, including me, so I’ll see your list. Make sure you let your friends know you’ve tagged them.

  1. The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry
  2. The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald
  3. Me Talk Pretty One Day by David Sedaris
  4. Bunnicula by James Howe
  5. The Merchant of Venice by William Shakespeare
  6. Enna Burning by Shannon Hale
  7. Howl’s Moving Castle by Diana Wynne Jones
  8. The Tipping Point by Malcolm Gladwell
  9. East by Edith Pattou
  10. Politics and the English Language by George Orwell

In no particular order. To be honest, that last one is actually an essay LMAO. I have a very deep love for short stories and essays, largely in part because they’re condensed into something that I can digest in between reading 5+ books for my actual English classes. BUT I SHOULD PROBABLY STICK TO THE RULES AND KEEP THIS LIST MOSTLY TO BOOKS.  //TEAR And tagging whoever wants to do this.

So these are relatively painless and easy to do in a short time frame, so I was considering commissions with them maybe. It would probably be easier if I just made a base, but that’s just too boring.
