I’m a fairly recent pen display convert. Like most people, my first attempts at going digital with my art came in the form of a Wacom drawing tablet. In my case, it was a Wacom Graphire 2 that I purchased in 2002. While it made coloring my scanned artwork easier, I found it too difficult to draw with. It didn’t take long before it was relegated to the Drawer of Misfit Gadgets™.
Getting into a rhythm of assigning myself sketch sessions for an hour. Tonight’s homework was faces, and trying to focus largely on female vs. male structure. No reference or anything, just get one out and move on. I’m finding it to be quite a valuable exercise.
