Some time ago, *Novawuff agreed to do a sketch trade with me. This morning, I logged on to see a note from her, linking to this deviation: [link]

Needless to say I was shocked, thrilled, squeed, happy, all those good little emotions. So then Stuie boy went to take a nap and I had nothing to do. Sooo I took out the tablet all collecting dust and painted for like 4-5 hours straight, and voila, the result. Thank you again novawuff for the trade, I'm still drooling over the painting :p

Some little random tidbits, this is my first painting to have atmospheric effects, and my first painting to have dramatic lighting. Go me. This is also my first digital painting in like a year. I'm pretty happy with the end result though :D

It came out spectacularly. You need to do more digi-artz. Hehe. Did you use a tablet? I all but gave up on digital artz because it's just so hard to make stuff look good without a tablet. *sighs*

Ahh thank you for all of the comments! Sorry I couldn't get back to you sooner, but yeah I do use a tablet. I used to work with a mouse, but I don't think I can ever go back to it now that I've been using the tablet :p It is possible to do the same quality work with a mouse, but I think it's far more time consuming and would take some training to move it as accurately as a tablet D:

Yeeeah the big reason I want it is to draw hair. I like drawing people, and hair on people just looks stupid or cartoonish.

No worries about the delay, lordy knows I delay months at a time sometimes when I'm not artistic enough to get on here at the time. =P

In any case, while I'm at it, what brand or whatever of tablet do you use? I'm hoping to get one if even just to try it soonish but I know nothing about them really besides basically what they do.

Huggles. :D

Ahh yeah, when I used to work with a mouse, the only way I could do fur or hair was using special brushes but when you use them, they kind of look too patterned and unnatural. I currently use a wacom graphire 3 tablet. Wacom is pretty much the tablet brand, everyone uses one I think. As far as models go, I only chose mine because of the size.
