@Alonealastalovedalongthe @noahbradley Reminds me of a quote I saw in a book on writing (paraphrased here): Why is it so hard to get started writing when I enjoy it?

I feel similar.

The things that truly set us free don't seem to call to us in the same way the things that feed on our addictions do.

I always have to convince myself anew to pick up the pen, I rarely believe it is what I want until I actually start.

It is like forcing yourself to dive into the ocean because you know you will love how it will feel once the shock of coolness passes. Much easier said then done when the moment comes.

#Snips is an upcoming open privacy-friendly alternative to invasive voice assistants like Siri or Alexa.

Instead of sending your voice to be processed elsewhere, the processing happens offline on the device itself:

snips.ai

It's not yet ready for ordinary users, but there's an official site for developers/hobbyists who want to have a go at making their own Snips device:

makers.snips.ai

RT @mooncube @AesAthena Oh no, that's a shame, that sounds very frustrating. 😕
Yes there's no undo in Alchemy, but: It saves as PDF and every time you save it's a new page, so if you save often you can always just use a page prior. :)
Also I don't use Alchemy for long stretches, most of the time it's just a couple of minutes until I got some good shapes and switch, so not much can be lost. I wouldn't use it as primary drawing app.

RT @AesAthena Did you know I wrote a feel-good Valentine's Day book? Don't worry, it's not too mushy. It's called LOVE POTION COMMOTION and it's got talking French Bulldogs. If you're still jonesin' for Hallmark movies, you'll probably get a kick out of this. It's normally $4.99 but it's on discount 'til the 19th.

@BobbertMoss I had a friend who'd set her sketches on multiply, which kept the stronger lines. Maybe something like that, flattening, then erasing some of the restatements (as we call the excess sketchy lines) could also get you the look you want.
Have you also tried doing the drawing in red or blue or non-photo blue pencil, then the final lines in black? You can digitally remove the colored lines and get something reasonably flowy.
Good luck! Keep us posted!
Friends,
