I bought the Huion Kamvas 221 pro. Will review

Good afternoon guys and gals. If you remember I was torn for a while between huion and another wacom for a size upgrade. The price wasn’t as huge of a factor since the expense will go toward work expenses but I felt like wacom tag price was still high while not perfect. I was eyeing 16 Pro in particular as other ones are too large for me, and it will be a while before I would consider the upcoming 24 model.

I managed to stumble upon a flash sale and grabbed one for 100£ less so figured it was worth a shot . It just got here and I will unpack it later in the evening or so. Time permitting.

I might do a video review because God knows I was always looking out for more so if I can help out someone else by adding my voice into the pile then i will.

Are there any features I should check out for you?

Let me know. Thanks.

Huion vs cintiq? (correction)

Correction: I meant gt 221 kamvas, the last year's model  >_<


Hey everyone,

I hope you're all well. I've been considering buying a larger tablet for a while now, and I was on the fence between Huion gt kamvas 221 pro and one of the larger cintiqs, or pro 16.
I currently use cintiq 13 and it's been pretty great for the past 3 years, the only faff really being driver turning itself off sometimes, and me needing to reboot or log off and log back in. I've looked at a lot of reviews so far, I looked at amazon reviews as well and so far cintiq 16 pro looks like a sore loser sadly. There seem to be way too many problems to toss such amount of cash on this 'professional' tool.

So my question is: has anyone switched to huion from cintiq? My main concern was the res, but seeing as even cintiq 27 is 1080p, my 23inch monitor is perfectly crisp at 1080p, i feel like huion 221 would be the winner here.

Thoughts?
Thanks

Hey everyone.

I hope the last few months have treated you well. I've been quite busy and in few places myself. Visited home back in Chicago which was pretty great after so long.

I wanted to announce I finally set up an instagram account, and while, initially, I thought I'd just fill it up with bit of everything, I think I will focus it more on personal, headworld stuff, and occasional unrelated pic. Commissions will remain here and in other places I'm already at.

In addition, thank you to the new youtube subscribers, you guys keep me motivated to post more. I'm planning on upgrading my pc in near future, and first of all reinstalling my windows because I think something might be bugging down some of the software, like video editing, so it's been a mix of crashes and testing different programs that often did not work which as you can understand might be discouraging. I do also plan on getting a webcam arm so perhaps I could start recording some traditional stuff like the art you saw me post here recently.

Now, if you wanna follow me on instagram, just go here : )

Sorry about the reupload. I had to find a pc because trying to post a journal on app or just mobile suuuucks.

***

I hope my excitement isn’t premature but I feel like I’ve made some big progress and would love to share with all of you about what’s been going on. 


As some of you may know I’ve been putting a lot of work into editing Remnants of Nysera whenever I had some free time. That included content editing, especially a lot in the older parts. I have now finished yet another pass in my physical copy and now I also realized I can make the plot much more cohesive by removing some characters that appear is second half. It would also require  changing couple roles around. I feel like it will make things shorter and cleaner. 

So. For now I left it alone and plan to tackle it again soon. And hopefully it will be an easy one this time. I would love to finish it this year. I would probably look into running it through a proper editor to make certain it’s the best it could be. 


Meanwhile I finally… And I stress… FINALLY… picked up the main novel you might remember as Who’s the monster. (ugh that title)  (The one with Azuryt and Rilah that I left in the first place to write remnants as, in  a way, the intro for bigger story. 


I’ve spent the last week or two tossing ideas around in my head. How to reboot the whole thing and where to take it plot wise. And as I started to write things out a theme emerged for all the books. (I’m planning on splitting the novel into two parts which will make a trilogy all together) and lo behold after years of pondering I finally got the titles that are as official as they can currently get. 


I wanna keep all of them under Remnants of Nysera as the series title. With titles: 


The Scourge of chains - novella /prequel 

The Sting of Steel - part 1

Unbound - part 2


This is very exciting and I actually feel like it’s not something just hanging up in the air anymore. That it’s starting to take proper form and is happening :) (Smile)


I know a lot of you have been wanting to read it for so long now and I thank you for all the patience and support. And I can’t wait to share more. 


Thanks

For someone who loves music such as from The Lord of the Rings, Skyrim, Witcher, Mass Effect, first couple albums from Two Steps from Hell and similar. I haven't been keeping up with music in recent 3 years, give or take, properly and would like to get back on track.

Youtube links will be very handy!

OK I think this is over now.  I'll try to get through the few remaining ones. Thanks for submitting.

___

And it's free! I wanna help some fellow artists. Maybe you can pay it forward at a later time to others too.

It's pretty simple. Post a link to a drawing you'd like me to have a look at. Creatures or people, and I'll give you some pointers to the best of my knowledge.

I won't do much changes design wise but I might do some stylizing on top of basic anatomy for better effect.

I'll choose a few from the submissions and you will be able to see the results on here : )

Thanks

Hello,

How is everyone doing recently? It's been a while since I asked. I'm quite busy on my end with job and filling the remaining time with some writing and whatever I feel like creatively. Now I also found some time for a commission if someone would like to snatch a spot. Perhaps something holiday themed as we're nearing dangerously close now. Options and samples provided above. The two bottom ones are the least up to date, however.

I'd love to do some creatures, maybe an interesting angle, dynamic pose if it's a character. Humanoids, humans/elves, or anthros will do.

Thanks : )

After a long time of tweaking and showcasing we released our game! And we'd love if you gave it a spin. It's free to play. Any bug reports will be of much help to us in the next few days especially.

In TV Trouble, you are presented with an endless conveyor belt of faulty TVs. Each TV is a micro-puzzle comprised of dials, button panels and antennae. Tune in and repair as many televisions as you can against the clock. Earn bonus points for speedy and efficient work.

Some of you may remember our last Game Jam piece Tv Trouble. It was chosen to be included at EGX this weekend in Birmingham so if any of you are around feel free to come say hi.  The nature of the game is bit nostalgic, and the goal is to tune as many old TVs as you can in a given time. It will be free to play.  We just put it up on Steam Greenlight and we'd love for you to have a look and vote.

Thanks

Just curious about those who come here daily especially, like myself. I know in my past journal I expressed how DA seemed to have grown too big for me, and in turn shrink in other ways, and I am on Tumblr and Twitter, FA, (some other sites I barely update too) I have my own portfolio page, and yet I'm here most often, even if I can't find as much will or time to draw for myself. I don't even know where I get most attention. Basing my knowledge on numbers and perhaps amount of comments and interaction I can get out of my posts it might be Tumblr. I guess I'm just too used to and comfortable here, also trying not to let it die since it's my most used account.

What about you guys? Where do you reside? Always looking for more peeps on tumblr and twitter : )

Hi everyone.  I am opening a few commissions slots.  Click at the above pricing sheet for more details and commission form.

I've been also considering opening commissions for 2d animation, probably starting with rough animation and seeing where it can go from there. If you'd be interested in a run cycle or a simple action animation drop me a note.

I'm not currently open for cellshaded pieces, but I would like to see if anyone would like to get a finished 1-2 character with background commisison. I've also removed bust option for the time being as I want to move my focus to portfolio quality work. I should also mention that both bottom examples on the sheet are pretty outdated (3 years at least I believe) So while you can see current character level, I can only offer last 2 years' backgrounds as sample.

I'm currently sitting in bed, propped up against couple of pillows, warm AND fresh out of shower. Life is good right now. So I'm in a bit of a chatty mood, which shall include some of my personal updates as well.

First of all, how are you doing? I ask this on an occasion but I'm genuinely curious. I know a lot of you are not around any more as you've moved on, maybe unwatched me or whatever, but there's a lot of new faces around here, and I'd like you to come out of the shadow if you would not mind as well, or if you feel like I wouldn't reply.

How has the new year been so far? Keeping to your resolutions? Any fun plans?

Actually, I want to ask if anyone here is writing any fantasy novels, big plus if you have artwork drawn for them as well. Do you have any stuff you'd like to share here? Maybe some of you are on Scribophile?

I've asked around last time for suggestions on critique sites, and I did the same on reddit and Scribophile came up few times. So I've signed up and got pretty hooked on sharing and critiquing. I think it's a pretty good setup they've got going on. So if you're there and want to exchange a chapter or two then hit me up.

As far as my new year goes, well, I'm hoping it will be a much better one than 2015. One of the new things I'm trying to stay consistent to is drawing a sketch/page a day in a dedicated sketchbook. I don't know if I'll scan much of it since it's a perfect bound, and I don't want to destroy it. We shall see what happens.

The book is still going, and I plan to resume putting out illustrations for my headworld again. I don't really like how I kinda let it die off again after bringing it back last year. But aside of commission work I'm also trying to expand my portfolio, which will be covering sci-fi and hard surfaces next. At the moment I'm just drawing a little fan art for Nameless One from Planescape Torment, which MAYBE will be done tomorrow.

I suppose that would be it for the little tid-bits of my life for now. And we shall see how the year keeps on unravelling.

I feel like this is the time where I'm pretty much ready to start showcasing the story for some critique. Ever since I got my laptop, and started making proper time for this, I've been editing almost daily. Once this pass is done, I want to start posting snippets, or first chapters for critique, and hopefully this year... finally publish it.

While I know some people here were interested in helping me out and lending their skill and time (please let me know if you still can, you'd be amazing), I want to ask if anyone can send me links to some fantasy oriented critique forums.

Also if anyone has contacts with a good, affordable editor and an agent, I'd love to ask few questions.

I was recently asked how I managed to get my animated files out of Krita into uploadable format. If you use the software, you will know that so far it does not support those sorts of files. And putting together all the exported frames might be a bit of a hassle for some, even with an editing software.

I was given a little custom script for an easy conversion to Video and GIF files and I thought I’d share with all you fellow animators.
