How come Deviant Art isn't doing any pranks this year? I kind of enjoyed them.
I remember when they changed every one's avatar to Team Twilight characters.
Maybe too many people freaked out when their accounts were messed with.

Hope every one's spring is off to a good start.
Our ducks are back. Only a male and a female so far but the numbers should
increase as the females are ready to mate. We get some pretty crazy fights in the pool
when they start mating. We've had big chunks of feathers floating around from the
boy battles.

Just finished coloring a monkey for my good friend Nicole, aka :iconwingdthing:
She asked for some unusual colors so it was really a blast to work on it. I'm going to be throwing in a little surprise with it
that she won't know about until it arrives. :)
I'll post pix when I'm able to.

Coming down from The Walking Dead season finale...Whew what a ride!
It's always a bummer to see it go for the summer but now we started watching Mad Men on Netflix so that's
going to help a little.

Finished coloring The Skeptical Turtle and will be dropping it
off at the shippers so it can make it's way to Kauai.
Can't wait to hear how she likes it when it arrives.

I'd better get off this computer and back in to the studio.
Thanks again for all the messages, new watches, faves etc. !
Take care,

Do you use a scanner to get digital images of you art? Or are you using a camera? I've just been taking photos because the only scanner I can use whitewashes everything. But it's hard to get the right lighting (for colour) and clarity in photographs. Anyway, what would you recommend? Thanks! -Also, I love the profile picture :P
I do use a scanner for sketches, and for scanning older printed photographs, but for sculptures and for taking newer photographs, I use a digital camera.
Both ways though, I always use photoshop to get the image to look like I want them to.
You can get good scanners for fairly cheap.
Photoshop brand new is pretty expensive unless you can get someone to burn you their copy.
Ha haha...thanks for liking my profile pic! That was manipulated in Photoshop. :)

Ok, great. Sounds good. Thank-you.
I just use the photoshop program, GIMP because it's free. : P
I'll have to invest in a cheap scanner though.
