Drawing Request Show: Episode 62 Recap

August 26, 2016

@twitchcreates #creative #drawing #request #inkscape

Official first look at the new Intuos 5 (Intuos Pro) I just got from Wacom and the first run during a stream. Works fantastic. The huion was an attempt at almost bootlegging this in every way, from the size, design and function but theres a reason the Huion was 70 bucks and the Intuos was over 200. 

Highlights include
-Show and tell of Intuos5 and its accessories
-Warmup/Demo to show its working just fine
-Giveaway winner TamTam
-Epic WreckItRalph vs DonkeyKong piece with simultaneous Poll of who would win the fight resulting in a back and forth and final winner (ralph) as if they were really fighting. Was awesome. 
-This show had mostly large pieces from 20 minutes to one that was 32 minutes to the ralph vs donkeykong which was 40 minutes. So there are less pieces in this episode over all.

Excited for future streams cant wat to do it again Tuesday! See you then! Enjoy the recap video on EWG YouTube below!

Drawing Request Show: Episode 61 Recap

August 25, 2016

@twitchcreative @twitch #drawing #creative #requests #art

Got the Intuos 2 to hang in there till the new Intuos Pro arrives. Realized my Wacom Intuos 2 even having 'aging' issues is better than the Huion I tried to use Tuesday, I fired it up and went with it and busted out 11 awesome drawings not including the 'going live' announce drawing and the warmup drawing. The Huion required all these factors for getting it to work right that I had to watch YouTube videos and research forums to figure out and it still didnt work. Yes, I installed the drivers first then after a restart plugged in the tablet. The thing didnt work unless you were close enough to the tablet surface and even then it would randomly click and grab things and jump around the screen on its own. In contrast, I uninstalled the Huion/ deleted all tablet related software drivers and folders off my computer Tuesday and was going to wait till I get the new one and try to get back into action next week. But Wednesday when I decided to give intuos 2 another go so I could do a stream, it took 10 minutes total to install the latest driver, restart and plug in the intuos and setup my preferences in the wacom tablet utility and it worked flawlessly. I still notice it jumping around and having the occasional wavering accuracy issue. But even with that, which I've learned to work with, it blows the Huion out of the water. And the Intuos 2 is a 15+ year old tablet Ive had before I even worked digitally on a serious level. Whats the excuse Huion? Crap. Is the Excuse. Its Thursday morning as I write this and my sexy new Intuos Pro (which as I understand it is an Intuos 5) is coming. And I cant wait.

Thanks to all who came out and made this extended length stream an awesome one! Keep those awesome requests coming!

Missed the stream? Heres the recap on EWG YouTube channel below:

And hope to see you at the next Drawing Request Show at twitch.tv/eryckwebb!

Intuos 2 On Way Out - Replacment On Its Way

August 22, 2016

#ripIntuos2 #upgrade #newequipment #replacement

Its official, I was about 75% through inking my first commission work today when the sine-wave problem returned. And it came back more regular and problematic than before. All the research points to either buying a new pen (which I just cant seem to find even on ebay or something) or replacing it. So I located a cheap replacement and it should be here tomorrow. Sorry Intuos, its ben an amazing run. Had you since I used to live in Virginia and you were the bread and butter of my business till now. Its officialy making it nearly impossible to work correctly so I will switch to penciling approval sketches on my Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 in sketchbook till it gets here. And hopefuly have it up and running and ready to roll in time for Drawing Request Show tomorrow. If it is not, we'll move episode 60 and the special $50 giveaway to wednesday. Or perhaps I can do the giveaway tomorrow and do the requests on my tablet as I can still do high res stuff on my tablet. We'll see. If you have a preference hit me up below. Will look forward to new fresh tablet upgrade and getting that rolilng tomorrow. Till then, will probably stream today drawing on my tablet till quitting time. 
You've been a good one Wacom Intuos2!!

Intuos 2 Sine Wave Issue Resolved ( Heres How )

August 21, 2016

#wacom #intuos2 #sinewave #issue #drawing #troubleshooting

So I wanted to do a quick post about a problem that I've been dealing with the last week or two. It might have developed about two weeks ago but I didnt really notice till the Drawing Request Show streams I was doing this week. Theres a problem, that I've found is pretty common after browsing google searches and wacom forums. After years of use the Intuos2 from Wacom suddenly starts having fits of wavy-ness while drawing diagonal lines (and in the case of drawing circles, creating some crazy arse ovals). While irritating and throwing off my timed-drawings on the twitch stream on occassion, I was able to change location on my tablet or just deal with it till it quit doing it 10-15 seconds later. I was sure Inkscape maybe started having issues and needed reinstalled. But I went down the checklist. Heres a forum of folks with similar issue:

1. Updated/reinstalled Wacom tablet drivers.
2. Tested the stylus in Sketchbook pro and Photoshop as well which proved that it was doing it in them too. So it must be a universal influence in windows, or perhaps the tablet itself.
3. I went into 'Tablet PC' and 'Pen and Touch' options in Control Panel and made sure all that stuff was off. Pen and Touch had a few things on that might have interfered and it did seem to work better after turning them all off. 
4. As you can see at the top, on the left is how it has been for years. Your first clue on how used it is might be the stained/ worn grip area above the button. I decided to replace the drawing tip. And also swapped that grip and button for a buttonless extra grip that came with it. Kinda nice as I didnt use the button anyways. When i took the button and grip off, you can see lots of inputs/ sensors for the buttons etc and a little screw. I shot some air in there cleaned it out a bit. When I took the nib out i blew in there a bit incase there was any dust or whatever in there too. Put a fresh nib on and the nice new buttonless grip. 
5. Afterwards I read up on it more in the forum. Peoples solutions ranged from buying a new tablet, to buying a new stylus to removing the button and cleaning the gyzmos inside. Short of buying a new tablet I sort of inherently did this by removing the button, cleaning out the inside of the stylus and putting some new thingies on. Also turning off all that pen and touch stuff that seemed to be messing with it. 
6. A final note, in the pen and touch area theres an area where it says 'automatic learning' where it collects info and learns about your handwriting style. I switched that to dont use automatic learning and delete any previously collected data. I have a suspicion that messed with stuff too. Who knows!

So it seems to be working normal again now. I believe the culpirate was the dirty button/ inside, cleaning it out and turning off any interfering utilites in windows. Time will tell though. At this point if it develops any new issues i might invest in a new offbrand tablet like huion or something. They're making competative desktoppads far cheaper than wacom...

Will do a follow up edit to this post if anything else happens. But for now, the steps above worked for me. Goodluck out there.  

Amendment 8/22/16 - yeah the sine wave problem came back and twice as bad. I dont know if it ever really went away. Time for a replacement. Its ordered and on its way. #ripIntuos2

Wednesday's episode 58 of Drawing Request Show featured a trend towards InstaWin requests, (free requests won by a spin at the gratitude wheel for above and beyond supporters). These were the result of the stream's other trend, a ton of wheel spins today lol. But had some awesome moments, some awesome unique and refreshing requests and was a really fun one overall. Look forward to doing it again Thursday 2pmET! Only at twitch.tv/eryckwebb

Will be composing a elapsed recap video of the week's three streams together at the end of the week! (Just to give myself more evenings off).

Hope to see you at the next Drawing Request Show!

DRS 57 Drawings Recap

@twitchcreates #art #drawing #creative #twitch

Cranked out 12 fun requests on Tuesday's Drawing Requeset Show. The stream started off with some connection issues for viewers due to some settings in my video encoder area. I restarted the stream got it running good and rallied to do a lot of really cool drawings. Also a noteable is this was the first stream where I successfuly got a mini-raid to pop off correctly.
Thanks to all for the requests! A video will be produced end of the week featuring  an elapsed recap of the week's streams 57-59!
