Hey Ghost,

I helped develop Sketchbook Pro. Neat little app. Not a Painter killer but everything a sketcher needs.

Cool. That must've been a lot of fun to work on. Gosh, I have to take advantage of my academic status and get some of these apps.

Wow, everyone is so talented!

looks good cept, I'd make your sig smaller, don't make it a part of the artwork.

The rest is just presentation, how do you intend on delivering said picture?

I say black matt board frame and a foamcore backing. Its cheap but still functional and it looks decent.

Does anyone have any recommendations for getting their digital works printed? I'm printing the above work for my friend on mounted canvas from FinerWorks. I have no idea how it'll turn out since it is my first time using them. We'll see in a couple of days. Any suggestions? Thanks.

that's so nice!
yeah - i agree about making the sig smaller other than that she'll love the fact that you made it for her!

most of us girls are suckers for guys who take the time and make something for us!
take care Beans and good to see you around the boards!

How true is that? Like... give me a percentage. I'm sort of in the same boat. Good luck to you, beanie. I'm sure she'll love it!

I can't speak for most girls but I'd say about a good 89.5% i guess. My roommate once made a girl a chopping board in the shape of a slice of bread - I thought that was the coolest thing ever. I guess she didn't dig it because she stopped going out w/him shortly thereafter - what a dummy!

In the sixth grade, I was a sucker for this one boy that would make me mixed tapes! I really appreciate a guy that would create something for me - if he thinks I'm special enough to spend all that time creating well then he'd be so worth my time!

ahhhhh perfecT! no sig.

I don't even like how it looks but always thought that people thought it cool or something. :-)

I want to fix the pants, but have no idea how, other than to add shadows, but that really sucks, since the legs are a weird angle to begin with.

ok so imma get rid of sig, and give her a kiss soon after!


thanks a lot for the well wishing ghost, and hope you turns out better than what I'm hoping for out of mine.

I just want to have a nice conversation with her one of these nights.


she just got back from france and I haven't seen her in about 5 months.

...anybody know a good program that can simulate watercoloring? I have Painter IX, but I can't seem to dial in the right settings. I want something that can do bleedy edges and blendings.

well, it's $111.00 for glossy, stretched and mounted so the quality better be good for that price.

But to be perfectly honest I've gone to Kinko's and had decent print quality. Sometimes thier colors are off but you come to expect that going from digital to print.

Is there any particular reason you chose finerworks? Did it have to be on canvas? I mean there's alot of choices when it comes to paper and the inherent print quality and probably won't cost you near as much, especially since you're only printing it once maybe twice.
