LITERAL DESKTOP by julianwilbury LITERAL DESKTOP by julianwilbury
I never DID do the rather onrey "IMMA GONNA PUT MY LITERAL DESKTOP IN MY DESKTOP WIDGET!" joke yet, have I? WELP, here it is. EETS COVERED IN JUNK.

And yeah that's a mod of my own art for my desktop IT'S OFTEN HARD TO FIND ART THAT FITS A 1600X900 MONITOR WITHOUT EMPTY SPACES. And empty spaces annoy me SOOO MUCH.

And I TOLD YOU Tablet Type 40 is OLD. BUT SHE'S STILL AWESOME.

I just like to collect Eastern dragons (and gryphons) especially since stuff of them is far rarer than for the Western cousins. (Gryphons are even harder to find stuff of!) 

And yeah, I'm totally one of those people who was partially sold on FiM since it had a lot of mythical beasties. XD;

Lol I'm in the same boat as you when it comes to the beasties, I love stuff about mythical creatures and old world times.

Looking good! And three cheers for classic Wacom tablets. My old Graphire II is still kicking as well... a bit less pressure-sensitive than it used to be, but still alive.

I know when I visited you and played with your tablet while you were workin' I couldn't get any pressure sensitivity out of it opacity-wise. Kinda weird! Luckily mine still does both...for now.

You must have answered this a million times but...where'd you get an action figure of Lillian? Is it a modification of an existing toy?

I sculpted her! I have the photos up here..

May take new ones sometime as holy cow, it's five years old, and these photos were calibrated on my father's poorly-balanced CRT monitor. She is very much one of the bluest shades of blue. X)

Ah, I thought it was made of plastic. Which isn't a criticism. ;)

I had a dream I submitted her to PatchTogether, so I can imagine why you may have thought that. XD (That would pretty sweet...but I'd be afraid to since it means handing over some rights and LILLIAN IS JUST MY BABBY.)

That tablet model was the best. I had to get a new one when my stylus broke but I after a while I ended up using the new stylus with the old tablet <3

I've heard so many stories about the newer Wacoms being ridiculously fragile so while I've obviously been thinking of upgrading (Tablet Type 40 is going on 9 years now) the fact that this thing has survived and I've only had to replace the tracing sheet (because I press down too hard all the time) and the mouse (only because the scrollwheel broke and I am one of those people who are TOTALLY LOST without a scrollwheel) while other people with newer Intuoses and such say they always have to replace their pen after they just DROP the thing also makes me just want to hold onto it as something I ~*know*~ that works until it turns to dust. :X

I realized after sending the comment that 'non-working computer' might sound wrong, I obviously meant the computer I don't use for job stuff, only net surfing at home --my older laptop

Well, I actually just recently got a Cintiq, because it was time for a more professional tool and I thought I'd save up and get a very good one since I was doing this expense in the end (considering how long I've had the graphire 2, this must last at least just as much).
But as far as small tablets go, I generally agree. My second one was a graphire 4 and I disliked it a lot >_> I felt even the design made no sense and was no step forward at all. I won't say it didn't work fine though. The new bamboos though went back to having a funcional design. I never owned an Intuos so I can just guess about those, having used one at friends' just a few times.
Long story short, I'm totally with you at using the old tablet till it falls to pieces. I still use mine on my non-working computer too!

We have the same tablet, they're even the same colour. Only difference is that I had to buy a new pen. :<

Graphire 2? These things are made rock solid. I've only replaced the mouse (scrolly wheel broke and I'm one of those people who don't know what to do without a scroll wheel) and the tracing sheet due to my "pressing down too hard" problem. Still have never changed the nib though, huh.

Gaaaawd I want that monitor.

The opposite end of the spectrum is having a desktop that is depressinginly EMPTY. Like mine at my dorm, which is where I am now. Grant it, that's mostly because I tend to use it for drawing assignments that come and go, so this thing has to be ready to be wiped at a moment's notice. BUT IT IS STILL DEPRESSINGLY EMPTY.

I haven't been doing enough traditional art for that to be a problem, and most of the stuff I do like the inky stuff and graphite is pretty portable and such. (That, and I also right now use brushpens over real brushes due to the simple fact I just feel like I would knock over any well of ink or whatever sitting on my desk. Goodness knows I knock over my tablet pen enough.) But I know what you mean. People always tend to notice that I surround myself with things I love in my room, it's quite deliberate.

THAT MONITOR LOOKS SEXY.

And as far as desktop clutter goes, mine's pretty similar. xD Whoa that tablet looks like my old one (Graphire 4 or 1 or something) which I only ditched a few months ago for an Intuous =X I want to keep using it for my laptop or something but now I can't find the stylus for it rawrgh

I like seeing people's desktops... it's always a "oh I recognize THAT!" or "ohhay what's that I want one too" hahah. It's entertaining. x)

Long monitor is looooooooong.

Yeah, mine is a Graphire 2, when I was still holding down a job I was unfortunately working too little hours (not my choice) to make enough money to put aside some for a new tablet. But these things are workhouses; I've heard pretty much all the early Wacom models made in their Japan factories are built solid.

I'm kind of sad that my Search and Protect EVE couldn't fit inside the frame. (You can see her lightbulb on the far right if you look hard enough!) Her and M-O...and D-fib...and AUTO...>.>;
