Hot Topic is known amongst artist groups as one of the worst offenders of art theft in U.S. retailers. I know artists are important to What Pumpkin, and I’d imagine multiple cases of art theft would be a very big deal. The most well-known of the cases were stolen fan art from independent artists, which is the same demographic the Design Contest was aimed to.  I’m an artist myself and I wouldn’t want to support a store that steals from my peers.

The people running Hot Topic have zero respect to artists and to copyright law. They’ve been ripping-off independent artists’ storefronts, and continue do so. The whole company really should have been shut down long ago.

If you support artists, independent, fan artist, or any kind, you should oppose Hot Topic and MSPA’s association with them!

Tell What Pumpkin to kick Hot Topic out of the Design contest RIGHT NOW.

We have so little time left to stop this please tell them that it is completely unacceptable to do any sort of business with petty art thieves.

Even if you don’t know what to say, or if you think it would compromise the contestants; It won’t. Just please voice your thoughts in anyway you can put them. Don’t let Hot Topic get a dime out of Homestuck.

I was completely unaware of this until now.

Please signal boost. I don’t think Hot Topic should get away with this.

Please stop supporting Hot topic.

Why Crediting is Important

Every artist grow by displaying their work and getting critique. But when their work is spread around without any credit to the artist, AND EVEN MAKES THE OWN ARTIST DELETE IT FROM HIS/HER SITE it lost the purpose and meaning.

WACOM TABLET DRIVER NOT FOUND - What Do

fox-orian:

So, you put your Windows computer to sleep for the night. Come back the next day, wake up your computer to do some work on that image you’ve had open and….

image

Oh dear, you’ve seemed to have lost all pressure sensitivity and high resolution tracking! Well, you figure, let’s go check the driver settings. Maybe it just needs to be reminded that it’s awake? You go to Control Panel, Wacom Properties Configu—-

image

Ah.

Now, you figure, it’s time to close photoshop, all your windows and programs, and do the dreaded system restart. What a fun time this is.

But HOLD ON, I say! There’s another way, yet! Try this out first before pulling the plug:

image

Open your Start menu (or press the Windows Key) and simply type “Services”. There will be an icon at the top of your list which appears to be two small gears withe the name “Services” — imagine that? Double click that and look what happens next:

imageScroll down the list and select “Wacom Professional Tablet Service” from the list of services and click the little “Restart” link in the column to the left. Now simply wait for the service to stop and start itself back up again!

If for some reason, clicking this little “Restart” button makes matters WORSE, the failsafe approach is the manual restart. Double click the “Wacom Professional —” service and a window will pop up.

image

Manually stop the Wacom driver by clicking the clearly marked button. Wait for it to shut down, then start it back up again when the button becomes visible. Once restarted, click OK!

Test your Tablet now in Photoshop. You may have your pressure sensitivity fully restored!

IF NOT, simply close and reopen Photoshop, which will be nice and quick since it (and your work) will still be loaded into recent memory. It surely beats having to restart the whole computer!

Now, providing you’ve done it correctly, you should find your Wacom’s pressure and tracking sensitivity fully restored! Bravo for discovering such a wonderful little time saver.

Found this online. Great for those who are drafting hoods.

Hoods are one of those finicky things to draft if you never drafted hoods before.

Example Cosplay: Attack on titan capes

I find this more revolutionary than I probably should, given the number of hoods I’ve sewn over the years. But it’s like world is a whole lot clearer now!

YES YES YES 

The shape of hoods are the bane of my sewing existence, thank youuuu~!
