Man With Hat

Man With Hat

My first real shot at using a Wacom tablet. Before I purchased a Wacom tablet, I usually only doodled in my sketchbook. I really missed not pulling out my Berol markers and color pencils. Without a dedicated space for drawing, I found myself lacking inspiration to draw. So, I took the plunge, ordered a large Wacom tablet and have wondered why I didn’t do this a lot earlier. Now, I don’t need to worry about creating a mess, or unpacking and packing drawing tools.

If you are thinking about purchasing a Wacom tablet, make sure you set up your brushes (photoshop, illustrator). Without the right brush settings, you’ll end up reselling your Wacom tablet on Craiglist. I have several illustrators whose work I really admire. However, I relate to Dani Jones’ style the best. She is an incredible artist and has some of the best tutorials on the web. Check her work out and check the links below for her tutorials on digital drawing and painting:
