Tablet test -- Lulu

Rating: G

Hmmm. Mom got me a drawing tablet for my birthday -- the Intuos3!!!

It's taking me a while to get the hang of it, but I used another Wacom with my ancient PowerPC clone for almost 10 years.

This was done with a ghost-image of Lulu in a background layer underneath the drawing, so it's cheating, but I was just trying to get the hang of the tools in the new version of Painter.

pretty awesome for a first try! I'd totally screw it up big time so yours is a definitely wowzer. :D

Gorgerous! Using reference is normal, I guess. I love the tones and shadings.

How's the Intuos3 by the way? I have the Intuos2 and wonder if there's much improvement.

It's lovely, wonderful, fabulous, but I have no idea how much improvement there is, since my last tablet was an el cheapo 4x6 graphire which didn't let me do sweeping strokes and wasn't very pressure sensitive.

You're a good enough artist that you might be able to tell the difference between 2 and 3, but I suspect it's a matter of more pressure sensitivity, more levels, but in skilled hands one can achieve the same effects.

One thing I love: there's a zoom strip on both sides of the tablet. I use the fingertip of my non-drawing-hand to zoom in and out at need. There's also shift, alt, and control keys there (which can be customized as usual) -- very useful since the tablet is large enough that if you prop the bottom of the tablet across your thighs and lean the top against the edge of the desk, you tend to cover the keyboard with it.

Wow, I love how you drew her hairsticks. Usually I just kind of shoot out four rays out of her head and maybe a dangly thing here and there. Such detail here!

Also, selfishly, I'm glad she got you a new tablet, too.
