Happy belated New Year to everyone, I've been so focused on RL issues and completing my commission queue that barely got time to post anything else written wise.
As for updates in general I decided to get Clip Studio Paint Pro (aka Manga Studio) and basically "mothball" Paint Tool Sai as I needed a program that offered me more flexibility and creative options. SAI served me well for the last 3-4 years I used it and maxed out its possibilities, ending up outgrowing it at the same time I grew frustrated with the complete abandon SYSTEMAX has allowed the program to stagnate and become obsolete. I really do not understand how they can sell a painting program so bare bones when similar priced programs such as Open Canvas or Manga Studio can do so much more for about the same price. I really don't see Systemax staying in business for much longer if they don't do something drastic. A real shame since SAI really did a lot of things right.
Currently I'm 275 pages in the Clip Studio Paint's manual (of nearly 900!) Yeah it is going to take a while but so far since the program is so similar in many respect to Photoshop, a lot of prior knowledge overlaps. The brush options alone are mindbogglingly deep and I can't wait to fully get a grasp of what this program can do. In the future I hope to upgrade to the EX version which would be great for a future comic project I have in writing.
On another front I'll be uploading some of my art and WIP and even stage by stage progress pics plus other stuff that might not qualify to be uploaded elsewhere.thescificat.blogspot.com.es/
All in all it was a interesting year, and I hope for this next year to be even more productive than the last.
As a side note, 2016 seems to be a huge year for animated movies that appeal to the furry audience, with Sly Cooper and ZOOTOPIA looming on the horizon these is a really big chance that if these movies prove successful, there is going to be a lot more studios willing to create more in the same vain. This is going to be interesting.
