It's a new era in Rome!

Well, it's a new, borrowed laptop at home, so I can actually get work done--on the comic, on the hideously-long-delayed Kickstarter, and on freelance projects--without everything taking hours to process and crashing in the middle and shredding the files. And I didn't even have to burn Rome down to start over again. (I didn't have to, but that doesn't mean I won't. Just sayin'.)

The borrowed laptop (which henceforth will be dubbed simply "the laptop") saved the big Photoshop file for this comic in 3 seconds instead of 5 nail-biting minutes like the old laptop. I'm still figuring out how to set up preferences so the cursor behaves the way I want it to instead of skittering drunkenly all over the screen when I try to dab some shadow under the Emperor's nose, and I don't have all my fancy Photoshop brushes installed yet, but I'm working on this.

No, seriously, we just went through the whole burning-the-city-down thing with Nero.

One downside is that I'm not liking the new Photoshop (trial) version's overeager attempts to get me to feed its overlords information on everything I'm doing. Sshhh...don't tell it I said anything mean about it. I'm a little scared of it.

Hooray for the laptop!!!

Ooh, and look, nekkid!Domitian! Seriously, I was having so much fun deciphering the facial expressions and the subtextiness of the conversation that I didn't notice he was nekkid at first! Now THAT's storytelling. ♥

Yup, Domitian would spend all day nekkid if he could. It wasn't my idea; the character demanded control over his (lack of) wardrobe, I tell you!
