It ain’t art


…but I sure am having fun!

I really like this thing as a monitor, just for tootling around the web. I’d like it even better if it was touch screen, but I suspect that’s what the expensive ones are for.

Have a good weekend, y’all!

John F. Kerry is thinking about running for President again in 2020. Think of the artistic possibilities! And you have shiny new tools.

It may not be art, but those tail feathers look astonishingly well done to me. I can’t wait to see more results from your fun. (-:

Serious note: Mme. Ermine I do hope you have a properly set up ergonomic work area. Panels such as your new one, usually placed lower and flatter than more commonplace monitors, put extra strain on neck, back, and shoulders and not supporting those bits can result in very unpleasant pain.

It’s a paintover, Alice — the super realistic bits are the photo more or less untouched. Another reason it ain’t art (you’d do this, for example, to ‘rescue’ a photo where part of it is out of focus), but I really enjoy doing paintovers. It’s basically scribbling on top of pictures, digitally.

You’re quite right, Uncle Al. I’ve already noticed strain in my neck/back. I’m doing my best to position myself to reduce strain.

Stoatie, I imagine there are high-tech specialized panel/monitor stands with motorized elevation and tilt controls and cable conduits and Dolby 5.1 speakers and popcorn bucket holders and everything.

Or you might use an easel, perhaps with a makeshift elbow rest.

Beware: more than one link in a comment is apt to earn you a trip to the spam filter, where you will remain -- cold, frightened and alone -- until I remember to clean the trap. But, hey, without Akismet, we'd be up to our asses in...well, ass porn, mostly.
