Been practicing with my Wacom Intuos 3 drawing tablet. Here’s a before and after. Not real happy with it yet, but I think I’m getting better.

The above is fine point Sharpie on scrap paper.  Took maybe five to ten minutes.

Scanned it into Photoshop (I need to figure out how to import stuff in Manga Studio) and spent an hour or so cleaning it up, changing line weights and re-drawing big chunks.

Just about everything I’ve read says you need to spend three or four days practicing to get the feel of using a drawing tablet, so this was primarily an exercise in doing that.  It’s strange watching the monitor while drawing on the tablet, plus I tend to spin the paper around to all kinds of weird angles when I draw–can’t do that with the tablet.

UPDATE:  Watched some how-to vids–I so half-assed my tablet set-up.
