Episode 158 - A Very Modern Modest Medusa: Part 2

Mar 17, 2014

In the second part of our interview with Jake Richmond of Modest Medusa Banes and I discuss with him topics like the use of gradients in comic art, background details, simplifying your artwork, cell shading, and the perils of covering up art with speech bubbles! This was not originally intended as a two parter but we chatted on with Jake after the Quackcast was over and he was so interesting, insightful, and on-topic that we didn't want to waste any of the chat we had with him.

Good research there SLK8ne!

I did some poking around and it seems to have driver conflicts with anything Wacom. One possible solution might be to try and uninstall the Wacom drivers and use the generic Windows drivers for any Wacom products you have attached. But, I'd only do that after I tried the troubleshooting procedure I listed that I found on Amazon. Hope this helps! Long may you draw.

Here's another site with drivers for the tablet http://www.yiynova.com/en/proddetails.php?proid=1&clsid=1&fid=1 The drivers are under the Download tab. As well as a user manual, which might have some troubleshooting info in it.

Here's some instructions I found from a customer review on Amazon I tested the tablet on my windows 8 and after a few hours of troubleshooting, it is working fine. If you're having trouble getting the Yiynova to work, try the steps below: 1. Uninstall previous drivers and tablet managers to avoid conflict. 2. Google Yiynova 19 inch and go to Yiynova's main site. 3. Under Support, go download the latest Display Driver. Install the Driver. 3. Go to waltop.com, download and install the latest driver for the 19 inch. 4. After installing the waltop driver, go to tablet manager, which is located in the taskbar once you successfully install. 5. Near the bottom right there is a numerical button and another that says 'calibration'. Choose whatever number but I set mine to 5. Click on 'calibration'. 7. Depending on your screen setups, you will need to drag the box to the yiynova screen and complete the test. That's it. 8. If you're having dual screen issues, go under screen resolution an

Hey, here's the Windows 8 driver from their website http://www.yiynova.com/en/userdlds/TabletD/Tablet%20Driver%20V5.01.zip

Jake still can't make that one work for some reason, I think it's conflicting drivers with his standard Windows 8 HID one. @BonesOfRuin - yup this is part two, the one before was the first part :D

Drivers appear to be at http://www.yiynova.com/en/qudong.php under Download > Drivers.
