Interests
Just added a couple more new pieces. Right now working on a couple of zombie illustrations as well as several others.  I think it might be because I'm eagerly anticipating the new season of The Walking Dead. My entry into the Gears of War contest(Game On by R-Tan) made it into the semi-finals. Hope I get first, could use the $10,000 and extra exposure. At least I'm guaranteed $200 and a copy of the game.

Useful Resources

In this section I have listed some useful resources that I use on a daily basis. Please check back occasionally since I will be adding more as I come across them.


WINDOWS DESKTOP GADGET-ACTIVITY GADGET
Activity Tracker by R-Tan
This is a windows desktop gadget I use to track the time it takes for me to complete an illustration. I usually work on and off on each piece, as well as working on multiple pieces at a time. With this gadget I just create an project name, then clock in and out as I work on that particular illustration. Apparently Microsoft has abandoned the gadgets platform so I have made it available for download here. fav.me/d4d9x0e


MAGIC PICKER-PHOTOSHOP COLORWHEEL
ColorWheel-MagicPicker20 by R-Tan
Traditional color wheel for Photoshop CS3 and up. I can't live without this extension. I find the normal way to select colors in Photoshop very clunky and un-intuitive to an artist.

3D PERSPECTIVE LAYER FOR CS5 EXTENDED
Capture by R-Tan
I found this useful free tool for Photoshop CS5 Extended. Someone created a 3D perspective grid on a 3d layer which can be adjusted by moving the camera view. The site is in Korean but google translate can covert most of it into English.

MYSTIC THUMBS
MysticThumbs by R-Tan
This is another useful program that runs in the background. It generates a thumbnail for file formats that normally just would have a default icon.  I use it for psd, abr, pdf, and google sketchup models. The fact that I see thumbs for all my photoshop brushes without having to open another program makes it worth the purchase, by itself. It works with a lot of other file formats including a lot of 3-d formats.

With surface pro 2, even when nothing is running the cursor has delay with the pen, its the same with several other windows 8 tablets. So I'm not sure if there are any tablets that don't have the pen lag.
