This is sort of a bad-news-good-news situation.
First the bad news:
There is not going to be a Fidget, Didget and Midget comic again this week. 🙁
Between website re-design, starting moving my office, which is moving to my dining room, our wedding anniversary this weekend (so wanted to spend as much time as possible with the wife and kids), my folks visiting from Spain, and still catching up from going away last weekend, I have had no time at all to complete a comic for this week. 🙁
Actually I did sort of get one done, but I’m not happy to upload it. It was very rushed and I feel like I was selling the story short. The last upload I did I wasn’t happy with either as that was also rushed, but it’s there now, and I would rather not do that again if I can help it.
But don’t worry, we will have a new F-D-M-idget uploaded soon!
So that’s the bad news.
The good news is that I have just been told by my wonderful wife that I am to receive a gift in the mail this week:
A brand new Microsoft Surface Pro 2!!!
Why is this good news to anyone but me? Well, up until now I have been very limited when and where I can create the comic. I do most of the work on the comic in Photoshop, and as such I have to wait until I am at home, and none of the kids are around.
Now I can literally work anywhere and anytime!
Also, I will be drawing directly on the screen in PS and I predict this will help improve my accuracy greatly!
So in theory there should not be the delays making the comic there has been in the past, and they are going to be improved in quality. At least this is the hope! The Surface arrives on the Thursday, so I’ll let you know how that goes.
Also, this will allow me to use apps like ZBrush and Blender on the move and progress the 3D projects I have in the pipeline here. There is a particular project I have wanted to get moving for a while, and now I see no reason that can’t progress.
This will broaden the scope of DustyGhost.com greatly! More will be revealed on that later.
So, no comic this week, but will be back soon, and there is even better stuff is on the horizon!
