I decided to test my "emergency painting system" (since my PC is about to sing its swan song, apparently) and finish this painting of my Imperial thief/assassin Brenna Martes I started a while back. Luckily I managed to kick some life into my old laptop which has an older version of Photoshop installed but painting this was still quite a pain. I'm missing all my CS5 brushes, tools and functions - heck, even the toolbar felt all wonky - and I have to recalibrate the screen because the contrast is waaay too low and thanks to that everything I create actually ends up looking super dark. It's funny how one can get so used to a certain program...
Ah well, can't complain too much. At least I still have one working painting software to use if things go south and this PC dies on me. If nothing else, I should be able to continue working on my commissions at last. So here, have some assassin-ish crouching on the rooftops of Imperial City.
