As some of you might have noticed, I've been making (finishing/posting) less and less art (especially on Photoshop) lately, until I pretty much stopped. The main reason is because, as I mentioned before, I don't have a free copy of Photoshop anymore. It's also, though, because I've been feeling unable to work on my art, especially on Photoshop. I have a laptop, and Photoshop doesn't work especially well on it. So I thought of stopping using it until I had a better computer, also because my free trial version of Photoshop had ended its run (and I had to format my laptop because it's too slow). I think it was just a bad idea to stop practicing, and now I'm feeling unable to get back to Photoshop.
In my house, there's a computer which my older and younger brothers used to share, but my parents brought one for my little brother to use himself, and my older brother wants to buy one for himself too, which makes that computer mine, though until my older brother buys a new computer for himself I have to share it with him. He works most of the day, so on most days I pretty much have it for myself, while still owning my laptop. On that computer, I thought I could get back to making digital art, but as I said, I've been unable to. Does anyone have any suggestion for me?
Also, my older brother asked me to give him my laptop so that I have the computer only for myself, but my mother says I should sell it instead (for, like, 400 Reals), so that later if I get more money I can buy a better laptop (though I think I'll buy a 3DS instead because I dream of owning one). I think that's a good idea, but there are some important stuff I only have on my laptop so I want to get them on a Pen Drive before selling it. And also, I haven't been able to connect my cellphone to the computer (The computer isn't able to install the necessary program, but my laptop could do it), which I find really bad because I have some stuff I want to move from one to another. Does anyone know how to fix that?
