WELLLL guess who's new Wacom Intuos5 Pen and touch tablet came in the mail today?!
I have to apologise to Tay and Robo while skype calling with them though, I wouldn't shut up about it
But at least I can start digitally painting more like they said I should do.
It's an amazingly feeling having a tablet that I wanted for a long time and its a big thing for me since I have been using the same old and cheap thing for 4 years without changing the nib (I lost the extras and you can't replace them)
And using this was just....wow...so smooth and professional like I felt like I'm about to improve in my work all of a sudden
Also yesterday I managed to get ahold of some mental health workers and I actually got my first taste helping speak up for patients who can't focus on what they want to say. So yeah, I'm studying for a cert and then a degree in Mental Health.
I have first hands experience from both sides; being the patient but I fought hard to get where I am now and I was asked to help in wards because they need more people who know what its like to take those rediculously large amount of meds.
And my career advisor studied this and said I'd be suited since I love to help and live for service so why not
Best thing is I've always had a thing for how the human mind works, keen observer and had first hand experience like a lot of successful people working with this.
So nuuu, I never wanted a career in art, its just a hobby and my home job; which I started taking commissions ^^ [link]
