i just got my new Wacom Intuos4 graphics tablet today!!! Now i am busy trying to make my hands forget more than 13 years of digital drawing with the mouse, and hand-drawing with the pencil or pen. i must learn the ways of the stylus! It is …interesting. i’m not so good, but i’m trying to cut myself some slack since i’ve only been at it a few hours.
The wonderful, amazing, endlessly talented and sweet Stephanie Fizer has shared one or two tips with me. Her illustrations are way too cool for school. Check her out!
One thing Stephanie recommended for me was to start with a pencil drawing, scan it in and work from there. So, i made this little drawing of a Boho Rag Doll to play with. And i’ll post some progress images as i work on it on the tablet! Bear with me, and feel free to send me tips if you’re one of folks who has already got it down-pat : )
