Been living a terrible lie for the past 2 years

Can you believe that the levels of pressure ive been using its the one on top and not the one under?

For past two years, ive been on a several depression, works taking like 3 times the amount it took me , i was like maybe, because im learn new things and im leveling up by adding extra effort, i noticed people uploading art and art like they were eating candies, this depressed me more, why its taking too long, why my work looks like its 80% finished but why i cant get the 20% right, why even if i spend 3 extra days on the image why still looks like a 80% painting? WHHYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY? What am i doingwrong , did i just forgot my talent? Did my talent expired just like that. Comments like this were in my mind each time i was working on a new piece, moving the hand and not getting the line i wanted, if i wanted a gray color i had to choose a gray color or will be impossible to get same gray with using a black on my tablet, there were no light pressure on my tablet, its like the first 30% of the pressure were erased.

Tried the most crazy curve lines in pressure to get rid off it, many times i thought i had finally cured my tablet but was only  a placebo effect. if i barely touched the screen the presure will jump to a terrible 30%, i as cursed, i coundnt stroke the wayi used, all this time i was like trying to do a goo piece using just crayons in a 3 inches paper, thats how my hand felt. I also was liying to myself saying like well maybe its the levels of pressure i just cant handle 2048 levels of pressure maybe my older tablets of 1024 were better for my hand, i was living  a lie.

Each time i did a stroke was almost impossible to match the past one, it was like rolling a dice to the floor and see what amount of pressure would come out.

All people had know my terrible burden i had ever since i bought my new cintiq 22hd, with first version not been able to click on corners, and a terrible noise sound, wacom repair it twice  but both times  wasnt good, then Wacom were kindly to give me a new one, but it was 8 months. Then noticed the jitter pressure almost unnotizable, talked to wacom, search forums, nobody knew was causing this, even burn a mother board by moving its bios had to buy a new one called gigabyte. Only to notice months later it was the power electricity of the house that had the problem, the electricity in my home wasnt grounded,  after fixing my electricity connection my cintiq worked good but somethign was missing.

Ive spent two years of my life, reading going to forums, moving a bit bios, unplugging buying extra usb ports, moving cable, i mean i did everything, except for this little thing. Turn off the XHCI MODE on bios, same as legacy usb. After doing that i had to reinstall the driver and all worked super well.

For the first time in two years im happy again doing digital, in the past two years, i had some depression thinking i was the problem, i was like why i cant get edges look good and fast like i used to do with my old cintiq. Now i finally found the cure.

I will explain the process of what i did in my website, and to explain what xhci mode does to your pc.


But now im happy. Thats only what it matters, IM BACK.

I'm sorry for the dumb question, because I try to search in your journal notes for a bit, but I didn't find if you still do commission or not :)

If yes I would glady ask for a 1 character (with or without background) color piece
