World of Warcraft: "Nom Nom Nom"
Posted: Monday January 9th, 2012 by

Taks played some WoW this weekend for the first time in forever. And during one of the breaks she took, theKid asked "what are we having for dinner". Her response was "Basilisk". The rest was my doing. Oddly enough, the kiddo just laughed with us instead of asking "daddy, what does stoned mean" like he usually does.

Thanks to the barely-used, hand-me-down parts I mentioned previously both Taks and I upgraded our computers this weekend. The result? World of Warcraft handling graphics set on ultra. I'm not sure but I think it may have laughed at me before moving on.

Well, as part of the upgrade, I moved to Windows 7 and have been jumping through some pretty ridiculous hoops for days. I wrestled all day with getting Photoshop to accept the permissions I'd already granted myself, before Stormy reminded me of a conversation we had nearly a year ago about Admin accounts in Windows 7. (Thanks Stormy.)

After that problem a much more insidious one stumped me, leaving me in the lurch for an inked final product. That's why the comic today is just a blueline sketch. Seems there's some issue between Windows 7, Photoshop CS, and my Cintiq. Even though I can see the pressure sensitivity levels in the Cintiq's control panel Photoshop isn't letting me control line width via pressure setting like I've been doing the last few months. It's very frustrating because I can see Tantalusian fruit on a branch just out of my reach.

I'm still working on it and am hoping to have a full color comic tomorrow. And then maybe I'll do a live feed of finishing today's comic.

How was your weekend?

----- Update -----

The full color version is posted now.
