The Stargirls by Botan
The Stargirls
And yet another present for another friend of mine. This time I kinda drew the two of us with another dear friend of ours. Guess which one is me. Since it shouldn't be so hard, I'll give no hints. :)

A present I did for a friend of mine. I remember once she told me she loved dragons, so I drew her one. Kind of.
She loved it. :) And I was happy I cheered her up. ^_^

Some kind of Mazinger by Botan
Some kind of Mazinger
A little favour I did for my boyfriend because he needed it for some project.

It's basically a Mazinger with some deliberate detail change.

This is really a test sketch to try out Corel PhotoPaint X7 on my Samsung tablet PC.

I like it so far. It needed some calibration at first, but after a few tries it got precise enough to feel natural and comfortable to draw and paint. The cursor is a little slow, but not so much to create huge problems while drawing. It might be uncomfortable when drawing small details, in which case you will have to maximise the view, which is actually quick and easy because of the multi-touch function.

Now, the "problem" remains the slippery surface of the computer screen, but I heard there is a cover sticker for this too. It's only the pen consumes faster...

Okay, so, here is the thing.

I am so used to and so comfortable with Corel Photo Paint 11, and I can do wonders in this one, which is easy and fun to use. The problem is that this program now is waaaaaaay outdated, I mean, old fashioned. And it's so old-fashioned it's even incompatible with my relatively new Samsung tablet PC running on a multi-touch Windows 8.

On the other hand, I was ALWAYS dreaming of tablet PCs and I find this to be the perfect technology for people like us, who like drawing and experimenting with digital and traditional styles.

Now, for a Corel Photo Paint user like me, do you have any good graphic editing software to recommend me? Considering PhotoPaint is a vector-based (correct me if I'm wrong) program, I guess I should search amongst other vector ones.
Also, it should support multitouch and should be well synchronised and compatible with Win8. Of course, if the interface is friendly with my CPP habits, even better, but I can adapt to new things too, so...

I was thinking of some newer versions of Corel PP, but I wanna know all that there is. Also, I hope there are some not too expensive (or even free) programs too.

I wanna fully enjoy the potential of my new tools of expressing my creativity. :)

하아아아안국 belongs to me, another story by the dirty 한국 rivers.... :boogie:

Okay, last weekend I finally arrived in Korea. The trip lasted 3 days in total if we include waitings, Umag - Zagreb, Zagreb - Zurich, Zurich - Incheon, Incheon - Seoul.

Now it has been like 3 days of my staying here and yesterday I went to visit the museum about the king 세종 (Sejong). And I liked it. The exterior part is just a monument, the statue of the king with some history explained and some of his most important inventions exposed. The interior is underground and its very building is cool, but that what makes it impressive is the amazingly wise combination of lights and shadows, as well as materials with reflection features and the high quality video screens.
For example, there is a set of war ships on a blue yet reflective ground that imitates the sea. The walls that surround that complex are video screens and the reflection of the video to the ground makes it, maybe not completely realistic, but very artistic indeed. You can obviously notice it is not just merely a coincidence.
Of course, the interactive features were not lacking. There were various games, photo machine, tablets to let the guests to try write in 한글 (Hangeul, Korean alphabet) and many other cool things.

Also, my man and I went to visit the artificial river as well, it was an interesting place. You got the modern city buildings, a real world metropolis, but down there it is made to look, hmh, not really natural, but compared to the the buildings and the city structure surrounding it, it's pretty much different, enough for reminding of the realistic Julian Beaver's street graffiti (these I have seen only in the photos, though), just this here is not a graffiti, but a real structure.

As for my first impressions about Korea and its people, well, I can't say I'm feeling like at home, I'm from a small town, I don't speak the language yet and I look different, but I'm feeling pretty comfortable. The people don't stare at you because you're different, sometimes someone notices you, but that's it. I thought I'd be much shier, but I'm fine.
The hostesses at the airplane were so proffesionally kind as well as the other plane officers.
And of course, my boyfriend is great as usual and his friends are nice guys.

The first day of my arrival the air was so heavy, the city felt like a bus, it all smelled like cars. But the second day, third and today it seems like becoming easier, and... normal.
