It’s my birthday

First drawing done on my Intuos 4

Yes – it’s my birthday, again! I can’t believe this is now my 5th birthday post, which translates as I can’t believe this blog has been going for 4 years.

My birthday posts traditionally have involved technology of the Apple variety but this year is an exception, although technology is still involved. I’m the happy recipient of a Wacom Intuos 4 drawing tablet. It’s been a tonne of fun and also a giant learning curve and here’s my first drawing, done with Illustrator and coloured in Photoshop. Yes it’s very naive and the lines are a little funky but not bad for a first effort of stumbling blindly. I’m surprised at how few good tutorials there are for absolute beginners like me – I think I have the topic for my next screen-cast. What do you think? Oh and if you own one and would like to offer some pointers I would be ever so grateful.

    Shoot… what are you talking about! I think that’s a great first drawing with the tablet! Much better than I could pull off that’s for sure. :) Happy Birthday!

    I think your drawing is incredible. I love the lines. I hope that as you get better with it, you still allow some of it to be raw. I like raw.
