    Thank you for your answer PrintDriver. Seems like I was misinformed. I'll probably have to buy another printer that can print on thicker card stock then. Do you have any suggestions as to what printer...

    Thanks.

    I was testing the Font Suitcase and seems to be screwing with my Chrome bowsers...after some googling--looks like its a known issue. FEX it is then.

    Thanks Garricks....

  • Boxes of life --- Lottery

    Hello everyone, stepping inside the new lunar year, wish all you guys good luck and all the best!

    Well I still carry on with my "boxes of life", but different from before, this time I did the lining job after my sketch.

    In the former "boxes of life" series, I colored directly on my pencil sketches. That gave me a certain rough but natural feeling, I don't know~ But if zoom in on certain spots, I would feel quite rough and not clean enough, as some pencil lines are quite thick and messy.

    For "boxes of life --- Lottery", I gave it very clean outline through coreldraw. No messy pencil lines anymore, I found it a lot easier to color, and the whole drawing looks clean and more vivid.

    I like both ways, but feelings are different. I just not that sure which way is better. So hope you guys give me some opinions and advices. Thanks a lot, cheers~

    Well thanks for viewing, have a great day everyone

                  Thanks everyone Great to see you guys like it, lots of encouragement!

                  Tofudge, you speak Cantonese?

                  Oh Amy~ Thank you Most of the former stories are realistic style, so this time I added in fairy elements to tell a cruel fact story. I'm so happy it really spoke to you

                  Ang Thanks a lot, seems faries could charm a lot more eyes~

                  Well thank you so much you guys, feel free to give some opinions on which one looks better for you, the vector clean outline or the pencil one?

                    Wow, I can never get enough of your stuff. I'm jealous of your talent hahaha. Absolutely fantastic, as usual.

                    I kind of prefer the look of the other ones, with the rough pencil lines. As nice and clean as this one is, I've got a certain affinity for things that have rough and dirty edges to them. but that's just personal preference for me. Even with the clean vector lines, this one is still just as stunning and powerful as the others. It really comes down to personal taste I think.

                      wow i really like both styles. like bladez, i have a like for the 'dirty' side of print/design. but i do love me a clean vector image too... reminds me of cartoons i guess... i love cartoons although i have seen some vector art that looks like its a photograph tho too...

                      the pencil one tho reminds me of a book that i got years ago about Lady Cottington it has a similar feel to that 'realistic' hand drawn diary. i have quite the collection of fairy stuff... someday ill draw my own i guess... amy brown's stuff is mostly my fav...

                      do you hand draw on paper and scan it in, or do you draw it with a tablet or something?

                          They're all lovely!

                          I do sort of prefer the vector version, but I agree with Bladez that it's a matter of taste. One way isn't necessarily better than the other. Have you played around with brushes and textures in Corel to get the best of both worlds?

                            I'm kind of split on it too. I like the personal, more one-of-a kind feel of the hand drawn pictures, but the clean, more vibrant look is nice too. The luxuriant growth of poppies is fantastic. So many nooks and crannies to explore and find all the details you've put in.

                            All your work that I've seen is quite wonderful.

                            One minor critique if I may. The blue winged fairy looks just a little bit flat compared to the rest of the composition, or like she's not at quite the right depth compared to the flower underneath her. Or maybe it's just made more obvious because she's the focal point and it feels like she needs more detail.

                              Yup, gno hi abc but gwoh gno d gwong dong wah mm chaw ga!

                              Anyways, I think both are great. The vector is more vibrant and crisp. The pencil is more soothing and calm. I wish you could enlarge the text for this one so I can read it too!
