Playing with my Tablet

I recently purchased a Wacom tablet. In the past I’ve drawn but I fell out of the habit of drawing for the last little while. I’m not terribly talented but have a lot of fun with it.

Based on a friend's recommendation, I also bought a copy of ArtRage. It is an amazing drawing tool that works wonderfully with the tablet, though you don’t need one to use the tool. I suppose I should really call it a "painting tool" because all of the digital materials behave very similar to their physical counterparts; brushes run out of paint or ink and streak, you can have oil paint textures, charcoal, pastels, smudges, and so on. Better than that, it's a great price!

Anyway, here's my first experiment with the tool. I was trying out the ink brush ideas for something similar to those Japanese brush paintings. The depths of abilities in these tools are wonderful and it will take me a while to get the hang of the techniques, but I think I'm going to have a lot of fun with them!
