Can anyone recommend good drawing/painting software that is either fairly cheap or free to download? Or even offering a free trial? I have a Wacom drawing tablet and want to test out it’s abilities.

so i reblogged this from a british person and i’ve been laughing at their tags for 600 years
England, you stole tea from China. You’ve had it a mere 4 centuries compared to their 30+. Don’t play like you’re some kind of authority.
How To Read A 223-Page Novel In Just 77 Minutes
Spritz is a company that makes a speed-reading technology which allows you to get through a mass of text, reading every word, in a fraction of the time it would take if you were turning the pages of a book or swiping through a Kindle.
The basis of Spritz concept is that much of the time spend reading is “wasted” on moving your eyes from side to side, from one word to the next. By flashing the words quickly, one after the other, all in the same place, eye movement is reduced almost to zero. All that’s left is the time you take to process the word before the next one appears.
The company is selling licenses for other companies who might want to use the technology in operating systems, applications, wearables, and websites. Obviously, the tiny screen of a smart watch instantly springs to mind.But the real revelation of Spritz is in trying it yourself.
So this is more interesting to me since it highlights what I’ve sort of unconsciously done since being a small child. It was always hard for me to sit still and focus, and while many books are interesting, many books have. Well. Lulls. especially when you’re very young, given some of the books.
So what I find I do when I’m reading, and this has been a great boon for a first pass reading for editing (the second pass being for grammatical problems rather than the ‘flow’ of the work), is fixating on central words in English sentences. Locking on the subject of each sentence rather than the full sentence, and ‘consuming’ the page more quickly. Spritz seems to be taking the same concept and reducing it down to the central visual of words, and feeding it to us at a just-fast-enough pace to digest (adjustable for the individual).
The fact that this technology IS actually being developed for potential electronic wearables is a delightful thing to discover.
Problem with speed reading is comprehension and information retention. I fly through really interesting books but sometimes important plot points are hazy. So is it really a good idea to read as fast as you can just to get to the end?
are you ever in the middle of saying something or showing someone something and you realize that literally no one cares
My new Wacom Intuos is coming… it is on the truck to be delivered.
Dude. This means that your name and address could have been in Dumbledore’s office.

Did you know that Crush is portrayed “high” because Sea Turtles actually eat jellyfish and the poisons inside the jelly doesn’t actually harm the turtle but instead intoxicates them much like marijuana does for humans.
i just thought it was because he was supposed to be a “surfer dude”
