Wacom! Wacoff!

I finally picked up a Wacom Tablet, which is something I've been wanting to try out for a while.

I'd been warned that it's a little tricky to get used to drawing with the tablet but I think I'm getting there!

I wanted to try colouring something, so I decided to use a sketch by Gabe who creates the artwork for the online comic, Penny Arcade. I've been a fan of his work for a long time and I know he uses a Wacom for his own artwork, so thought I'd try my hand at colouring one of his sketches:

I opened this as a seperate layer in Photoshop and added the linework and colour overtop:

It's a little shaky but I'm getting more and more comfortable with drawing with the tablet so it's a good learning experience.
