Hello, I've the same issue as others here: used the installer on mac osx 10.9.4 / Nexus 5 and it all went very smoothly until reboot. Now it's hanging at the blue demon face with the circling arrow ...  Support Token: ff6de9d9-a44d-4358-93e0-85d24c1055da

Let me know what other info is required. Cheers

There does indeed seem to be something going on with hammerhead and this beta version of the installer. The developers have been notified.

015 | 365 | 2014 Hands 
Quick hand sketch. Why are hands so difficult to draw? Even when I see a good/realistic drawing of a hand, there's always something just a little 'off'. 

There's a lot 'off' here ... my first hand drawing 

016 | 365 | 2014 Hands II
Particularly wet day today, so I have stuck with the hand theme - they're also very good for quick sketching. 

Think I'll make hands my fall-back sketch theme.

006 | 365 | 2014 Incomplete Test Tree 

Copied this from yesterday’s photography P365. This is a test drawing, looking at the different ways to sketch/shade etc using inks - cross-hatching and dots. 

Becomes Difficult to see the different elements of the sketch - tree, sky and leaves. Might be overcome with a better shading technique.

In these instances, less is definitely more …

On the inside sleeve of my sketchbook is the following: 

"The best advice for a new sketchbook is to always mess up the first page. Draw something loose and ugly, then there's no pressure to make every page perfect and you lose your inhibitions"

Think I'm going to make this my 'modus operandi' for this entire first sketchbook.

Introduce Yourself  - 
 
Hello, been lurking around and making the odd comment in this group for a week or so and finally thought it about time to introduce myself. I'm Yael, and I'm to be found making images in my new home of Sydney, Australia.

Hoping to find both inspiration and critique in this group. Thank you

Here's the start of my Project 365. I've already managed to missed a few days and muddled up a few more (really how difficult can it be) but I'm adamant that I'll keep shooting (hopefully) daily until August 2014.

003 | 365 | 2014 Pen & Ink

As I'm in my experimental phase (ahem), thought I'd do some experimenting. I used to enjoy drawing in pen & ink as a student 'way back when...' and until very recently, I wrote with a fountain pen (not much cause to physically put pen to paper any more ... shame that). Anyway, putting these two things together, I decided to try sketching with a fountain pen ... my pencil sketches were going SO well, after all (yep, that was sarcasm, I'm not delusional yet).

I managed 3 pages of sketches and learnt 3 things (in the order of my drawings ... funnily enough): 

1. pen & ink drawing was unforgiving and a light and considered touch is called for
(random, heavy handed sketches: cartoon character, flower, hand, barstool, container, sunglasses)

2. it' all too easy to overwork a drawing 
(forest scene)

3. pen nib/brand selection is very important - for me, fine or extra fine nibs and the pen of choice - I have a fair few - was the Lamy
(Baroomba Rocks)

... and it'll go some way towards my personal target of 100GB (+ I'm curious ... just how much free storage can they offer?)

The whole idea of post arriving and sitting outside come rain, shine and local thief is totally alien and somewhat fascinating to me. 

My latest project ...

Located just off the main road, far enough for there to be no road sounds and close enough to make access easy. The site itself is very clean and well maintained and there's even a swimming pool, if you're so inclined. It's a very good launchpad for the attractions of Alice Springs and the gorges and drives nearby (ooh, and the staff - and other guests - are helpful and knowledgeable. On Sundays the Holiday Park puts on a Pancake Breakfast ... what's not to love??)
