Several of my friends from the Lubbock Sketch Club and from around town got together and pitched in to buy me a new drawing tablet to replace my old one that has been hurting my feelings for nigh on two years now. It was a complete surprise and a real blessing. Its a new Wacom Intuos 4 tablet. My old one was a 3. I didn’t even know they had 4’s out yet. Its pretty awesome, with a lot more short cut buttons and a touch ring that works as both a zoom, and can toggle through several other convenient options. Its really amazing.
Its been kind of rough month. But all of a sudden, I’m with a new laptop, with all new adobe suite, and a new drawing tablet. I’m really looking forward to diving 2010!
So this is my first official digital sketch with the new tablet. Amber is really into UFO’s and aliens right now, so I guess this drawing came out of that somehow. I think he’s cute. This was about an hour in Photoshop.
I hope everyone has a wonderful, blessed Christmas and New Years. Keep smiling!
