RE: Issues with PS as of late?
Hi All - Wacom posted today that the Windows 10 April update resolved our issue. You can find the info on it here: https://www.wacom.com/en-us/support?linkId=51131044&guideTitle=Why-is-the-pen-scrolling-instead-of-drawing-or-selecting-everything-in-Windows%3F&guideId=c0fbe8d4-d7b5-41ec-93c8-368cf9dfe2d7
I just finished the update and turned Windows Ink options back on in my Wacom control panel. And all seems to be working fine in Photoshop for me!
RE: photoshop troubles-please help if you can
@chip-valecek - I did the exact same thing - with Photoshop and had to go and redownload all of the Kyle brushes and install them again, and arrange them the way i like them. So I totally feel your pain with all the troubleshooting trying to figure this one out.
RE: Issues with PS as of late?
@chip-valecek - Chip I had the same issuse on Thursday night after my Wacom updated. After much searching, I found articles online about MIcrosoft updates being the issue. On my tablet the update would not allow me to "uninstall" so I had to do a recovery of my previous restore point to get things back to normal. Then I found an article on how to prevent automatic Windows 10 updates (requires you to add a registry key) so I can hold off on that update until a fix is found. Any idea's how we will know if a fix is found and can start updating again?
RE: Book Cover Dummy Snow Happens
Hi Charlie Eve you are an absolute expert at working with textures and a graphical style.
I have come back to this post a few times now and the one thing I could offer is perhaps there is just a little bit too much texture/busyness going on in that top half of this Snow Happen cover. Like maybe the tree's could have less texture here? So that they would give our eyes a little bit of a break? Because with the snow splatter, and everything else going on, I lose the title a bit and my mind wants something to be able to rest on and that might be a place to do it? Like I said you are the pro at this so you might have a better solution but just a thought for you to consider.
I remember the portfolio pieces you had created for this story a while back when you shared them here, and they have stuck with me all this time. They were so wonderful. So I can not tell you how happy I am that you are turning it into a dummy and moving forward with the story, concept and style. I know it will be a real winner when you are done. Can't wait to see where it takes you!

RE: 360 Illustrations and Animated pictures- your thoughts?
@chip-valecek last Saturday at the SCBWI Chicago Area Illustrators meeting we had a guest speaker who did an entire presentation on creating 360 illustrations. Man I wish you were able to make it out to these meetings, I know you would really enjoy so many of them!
RE: Alice in Wonderland - illustration series
@smceccarelli for some reason each time I look at this the textures on her arms/legs almost makes me think she is very scraped up and raw or perhaps burned. Not sure but that texture is very rough and high contrast right now or the saturated red/orange color of it looks blood like to me.
RE: Another reason why SVS rocks...
@chip-valecek - I can not thank you and your son enough for coming out to the gallery show this evening, so great to have your support my friend! It was a real pleasure finally getting to meet you in person!
I absolutely could not agree with you more that SVS is truly a special place on the internet for bringing creatives together!
Hoping that you will be able to join in a figure drawing session sometime in the future - would be great to be able to hang out and draw together sometime!
Thanks again Chip, really so nice of you to come tonight!
