Hey guys! I've got good news and bad news. The good news is I've the Ruby Valentine image finished. So much pink...!
'Love is an Armed Redhead' | inks, copic markers, white gel pen | 5x7 | SOLD
The bad news is, the camera cut out again, this time after only twenty minutes or so. I didn't even get enough to make a partial video. *sigh* I thought the cutting out was due to the computer going into sleep mode. A few days ago Matt located a program called Caffeine which is supposed to keep the computer "awake". While the program worked wonderfully, apparently the computer going into sleep mode wasn't the problem after all.
Everyone whose video speed-ups I've watched on YouTube have mentioned using a digital camera to record, not a webcam. Maybe that's the issue, that the webcam is just not designed for this type of work. Unfortunately, I'm not willing to spend the money on a digital camera at the moment. I've a few other, more pressing, matters to see to right now. So, what I'm going to do is this... I'll do a bit of research into what others are using. Once I decide on a camera that will fit my needs, I'll know what I'm looking at price-wise. In the meantime, I'll start putting a little money aside each month into a Camera-Kitty (kitty as in canister for money, not meow-meow feline).
In the meantime, I'd like to postpone the idea of Thursday video speed-ups if that's okay with everyone. I'm not sure what we'll do on Thursdays instead, but I'll think of something. I may just have a new Min-Pin or 5x7 image to share, but there will be something.
I'm sorry for putting the videos on the back burner for the time being. I'll start them again once I've all the bugs worked out. Thanks guys!
