This was one of those rare times that I was able to sketch an animal on the spot. Usually such attempts resulted in half-finished outlines 'cos the animal wouldn't stay still that long (ok, I can't sketch that fast is more like it).
My first problem: taking out the HDD from the laptop. Never done this before… Took a step back, looked at the thing and decided that the HDD should be the little block next to the battery. But I couldn't find the button to release it!
… In the end, googled a hardware manual from internet, found a product manual from Compaq. Figured out which screw to release the HDD.
Good luck, Zim. Wonder how you'll eventually solve the laptop problem.
This is the first of my series of "Creative Learning" posts. The actual posts aren't necessary my own. I'll be looking out for stuff that others write about, that show the "How To" for creative works (defined broadly) and/ or learning about something new.
This one is by ToyCon, on his attempt at painting a Gundam model primarily with spray paint:
My first attempt at using spray cans only for a Gundam kit. Always loved the Titan's navy blue and was glad Anchor ($3-4, available at hardware stores) actually has a premix. Other colours that I applied include black and orange yellow. The greyish blue(?) and red parts were simply flat coated.
Nice pics. Maybe his next attempt he could show how spray paint is applied.
Here's a site folks who illustrate, and write, might be interested – HOLOGRAPH MAGAZINE:

Worth giving this a shot. First, I must see if I've got anything good enough to submit… the featured works are pretty good stuff.
