I just bought a Wacom Volito 2 pen/drawing tablet. Since I haven't worked with a pen tablet before, I thought I'd start with a reasonably priced "beginners" tablet.
I drew this one in ArtRage 2, the graphics program which comes with the tablet.
I have a lot of rough sketches for comic strips, so maybe I can scan the sketches and finish the drawings on the computer, instead of re-sketching, then drawing then inking by hand.
I'm currently working on the last part of the "Wishes" 3-parter strip, which should've been strip #17. Not so easy yet to get nice lines with digital inking.
OMG! First strip in 2008!
I plan this to be a mini-mini story. Don't know exactly how many strips, though. Maybe 5.
This, I think, is the fastest drawn strip I've made. I used A5 sized paper instead of A4, which meant I didn't get hung up on details. I sketched, drew, inked and put in a bit of colour with felt-tip pens - all in one day. I hand-lettered it too, but that looked bad, so I added text in Photoshop.
The "art" isn't my best by a long shot, but, hey, if it means being able to finish a strip in a day I may feel tempted to draw more often, and get more practice.
I wasn't too happy with the finished strip, so I added some more colours.

This is the first strip I've created entirely on the computer. What fantastic art!
