When I started doing digital art I was gifted a tablet, and it has served me for many years.

Goodbye old friend

Its a bitter sweet moment to say goodbye to my dear friend that has served me so valiantly for so many years and so many projects.

A trusted companion that helped me express the art in my soul, and helped me grow from Noob to where I am today.  I wont say I am an expert but has learned a lot...

But the time has come to upgrade to something I have wanted for a long time.

After many years of squirreling away money from my salary, and going without luxuries, I was finally able to afford this!!!

19" MSP19U Tablet Monitor

I have also upgraded my computer to be able to actually do 3D art, and more of the high end features of Maya and Photoshop.  My other computer was not able to handle it and regularly ran away screaming.  It however have served me well and faithfully for as long as I had my little tablet.

Soon my MSP19U will arrive and my new computer will be loaded with software and better graphics card and bigger hard drives, which in the end, cost all my savings.

So the time has come to take my art more serious, which mean 3D art.

In that i don't want to forget my wee tablet, for all the hours of faithful service it provided, and all the hours we spend in each others company.

A new chapter of arting is about to start, and I am wait to be able to draw my first art on the new screen.  So now I am enjoying some pencil sketches I want to turn into art.

There is no such think as great art, only AUTHENTIC art! Real art, come from the soul!
