Paint Tool SAI: To Retain or Not to Retain

This is the weirdest message I’ve seen yet.
To retain

In love with Easy Paint Tool SAI at the moment. A paint programme with just enough customisable tools to make doodling (Som) and painting (others) fun without facing gazillion choices of brushes under Menu-submenu-option-sub-option. For 1.85 MB, it sure packs a punch. There is even a vector mode. (°w°) ~ <3

SAI is still under Beta-phase development, though. The original version is Japanese, with an English-menu fixed-version by a group of dedicated users. Hence, the funny message above. Strangely enough, it doesn’t seem to gain as much popularity as it should have. (Sure, it has a Wikipedia page of its own, but that doesn’t even qualify as a stub!)

If My Sketch Could Talk

I started doodling absentmindedly, picturing something.
… though what that something was eluded me.

After inking, the two blobs became …um… a dog(?) and an owl(?).

So if they could talk back, this is how it probably went:
Dog and Owl

I’m quite proud of the wall myself. That’s the only thing that stays put.

Apparently, my grasp of how members of the animal kindom should look like is far from accurate.

I probably won’t be up to the task. Though I might be able to nudge Gou and Mikan to participate ;)
