So long story short I got a new laptop before New Years, which is an upgrade to what I had in every way. For one, I can actually open .docx files now. I know, it's pretty cool. Except I was wrong about it being better in every way.
My monitor displays colors slightly off, not so much that things look weird for me, but to the point where digital art I make in color looks different for me compared to other computers (phones etc). Especially saturation and contrast. Changing the monitor display settings has no effect, but I haven't given up on finding a solution.
It's a bit of an inconvenience for a digital artist. I don't want to start any time consuming paintings in color because they won't look right for anyone except myself. And now I would actually be able to work with fairly large canvases for painting.
I'm also getting a little bored of painting in black and white :') Maybe I'll have a better understanding of contrast and lighting for when I can do colors again. Gotta try to find the positives haha
