Ceci n'est pas une personne.

(no subject)

So I took my new laptop and I wanted to watch a couple dvds on the train ride today, and neither Media Play nor VLC would play the dvds. WTF?!?!?! They work fine on my 10yo dvd player, but not on my nice new shiny laptop?

So I started up gimp and drew the whole way to PDX. The train jostles around quite a bit, so the lines aren't very clean. And the trip ended before I finished the drawing. It might never be done. But anyway... This is why I shouldn't be allowed to be bored with image editing software....

I still needed to color the rudder and propeller. And I wasn't to add a pilot at the wheel and someone on the bow with a top hat looking through a telescope. But... Yeah, you get the idea. The idea is, I really need to take a drawing class. I look at the photo realistic images people do from scratch, then I see my stuff that looks like a crayon drawing by a 5yo, and... Yeah. I'm not quiting my day job.
