So we all know about my ongoing love/hate saga with my Surface Pro 3. When it works, I love it. Drawing directly on the screen is just the best. I would LOVE a Surface Studio with the Surface Dial. However.... when it isn't working, I'm very, very frustrated.
On Monday night, as I was getting ready to draw this sheet, my Surface pen broke. My THIRD Surface pen. Thankfully, my dear engineer husband rigged it up to work for now and I ordered a replacement pen. I'm trying a third-party pen this time around because 1) dropping a hundred dollars on new pens is starting to annoy me and 2) if it's a cheap pen and it works, great. If it doesn't, at least I didn't spend a hundred dollars on it.
So that's my rant for today.

I didn't include hats today. These are evening dresses and I really didn't feel like drawing hair. If nothing else, I try to be honest! And in that spirit, I want to tell you how much I honestly LOVE ArtRage 5! This whole series has been created primarily in ArtRage, and I couldn't be happier. I sketch with the pencil tool, ink with the technical pen, and it looks great. One big thing I love is the flip function. In Photoshop, if I copy and flip something, it flips on a weird axis. In ArtRage, it flips my image more intuitively. Pictures would help....maybe I'll write about it in the New Year.
Anyway...barring any more technical difficulties, I'll have another sheet on Saturday!
