So... the thing is, I got a new computer, a new drawing tablet and new drawing software for Christmas. Not because I was nice... I bought it all for myself, Santa didn't even know about it. But it was just in time because my old computer just croaked.

The new stuff is great, but absolutely nothing works the same way anymore. I jumped from Painter 15 to Painter 19, and somewhere in all those updates they eliminated almost every brush I was using! Like it was personal. Also they moved stuff around so my workflow doesn't quite work or flow anymore.

All this whinging goes by way of explaining why there's no color in today's update - I just can't settle on a brush, none of them look like I want. I'll keep dinking around with it when I can and eventually I'll find something I like the look of, then I'll start doing color again. But for now, I just wind up in endless loops of working up a page, deciding I don't like it, and then starting over. Which is why (you may have noticed or may not) there was no update last week.

Story wise, we met Tamil in the prologue. He's way south of Newcom and them, down in the Green Zone...

But it's better. Every engineer want's to reinvent the wheel as soon as they leave collage. I feel your pain. I could go on forever with what they do with automobiles.

Gets off soap box.

<insert bitter comment about the timeliness of your commentary on the effects of drawdowns>

Seemed like a good time to push into the "cut and run" storyline...
