Using a inkling

Ive had a inkling  since last year my  usage  of it varies  from month  to month and  I love  to draw I’m a graphic artist  after all, I love  technology  and  what it  can bring  to my artistic endeavours the inkling is one such  device it allows me to draw on paper  which i find  nicer  and simpler  todo  than  using a tablet  which i can find  tricky  but  it also  give  me the options of layers   which means  I can  put  down a layout  wireframe  for a drawing  then I can over lay  that  with  the final  pice all using the same device and  while still keeping all of this in layers  which  i can  strip away  latter

on the down  side it isn’t always  perfect  it  doesn’t  always keep  your lines  in the same  place which  does mean it  requires  some clean up after   you have  drawn  your  image  but  for  something that allows  me  to  bring  some thing into the digital  world that is  from the physical world  well  you  can  hope  for complete perfection

frackitthis  image  is one I drew on my  way back from my Christmas  trip to London side by side  you can  see  the difference  between  the  two and  where I’ve cleaned up/altered  the digital version  ill be honest the sketchy  feel  to the drawing in partly  due to the train and partly  due  to the way I was drawing on that day  it  did have  some  clean up in  illustrator  to make it clean  all in all i love the inking  for what  it does  and the interface it provides  to allow  you  to  translate  drawings  from paper to digital format with little hassle I would however like  to see  perhaps a updated version that  renders line positioning more actuarially


Self Employment

Its been a long time coming but final I’ve taken the plunge into self employment the fun of the chase the horro of  perhaps  not having  enough money to make ends meet its fun and daunting all at the same time I’ve done a number of jobs already and I’m rapidly increasing my client base though a great web site called People Per Hour  I Would totally recommend this  site for any one intending  to become  self employed .
