 :desk: Hi, Illustrators. I'm peeking out from under my desk to share a link with you that I thought you might really enjoy. I did, and I'm not even an illustrator. It's about a book, Painting Your Way Out of a Corner, but it's also a "how-to" video that shows one technique that looked so fun even I wanted to try it! Made me want to run out and buy some paints and a sketch book!  :lol4   Anyhow, here's the link to the page if you are interested.

The link said preview failed, but it's probably just not tablet friendly. Excited to look later from my desk!

It's a .mov file, Arty, that's probably why. My iPad doesn't do flash type stuff unless I activate an app I put on it. Then it can do them just fine. I discovered recently that it isn't the iPad that can't play flash type movies, it's the browser. Hmm. I wonder if it's possible to download a different browser for those times when I want to watch things Safari doesn't recognize? Probably not. At any rate, I have a program that does it, so I guess I'll just stick with that.  :grin3


ETA:  Just in case anyone is interested, the name of the app I put on my iPad so I could watch videos it couldn't normally see is called:  Photon

Lol, I've been too busy to spend time figuring out how the tablet works. I can post on the boards and check email from the couch?? Good enough for me.  :grin3

But I'll totally check it out later. You've piqued my curiosity!

Love it! Thanks for posting the link--this video was just what I needed today. Now, off to the mall to tell Santa I want a new sketchbook for Christmas this year...

Ooh, I love what she says about risks. A certain ARTist here pushed me out of my comfort zone. And the same suggestion was given to me years earlier . . . but she had a certain amount of tenacity about her.  :mademe :chickendance It was about two years after I went for this change that I got my first contract. I'll have to check this book out in the near future.
 
Thanks for posting this Verla.
