Hey guys!

So for my own little birthday treat to myself, I bought a Wacom Bamboo pen tablet off of Amazon. I've had it for a week or so now, but with work and whatnot I've not had much chance to work with it. The tablet itself came with Corel Painter, which I'm getting much, much better at using. However - I still need practice!

So here's my idea - give me something to draw/create. Maybe you want me to design a logo for a band or company you made up, or to draw a portrait of you, or even to create cartoons! The idea is that the more creative the ideas, the more practice I'll get in all sorts of styles. I really don't want to get stuck in a rut using the same basic tools (The in-program tools, that is) to draw, so variation is key. smile.gif

I think it'll be a mutual gain - I get practice, you get a drawing of whatever you want.

Sound like a deal?

Edit: Here's just a quick example of something I've drawn -


--------------------
Her dignity shone so bright like a light on a hill
and she burned for me, no other man came near her flame.
Bad country songs - the deafening twang of the rich white kid blues.
You can own the strange, but the lights and glares will not make you real.

They were created in the nuclear furnaces of stars, and the only way for them to get into your body is if those stars were kind enough to explode. So, forget God.

Izzy - of course you can put it on facebook, and I don't really care either way if you tag me or not. smile.gif

Vic, If you judge by artistic skill, this is one of the worst thing I've drawn. If you judge by sheer balls-to-the-wall awesomeness...it's the best damn thing, ever:

These are some oddly abstract unicorns, I don't know if that's because I wanted them to be that way or if it's because it was 4am. Regardless, here they are:



The reason the above picture was done at 4am is because this picture took up most of my time:

After many days of not drawing due to boring real-life stuff, I present to you the best viking, ever.

Bigfist McHugeballs.



And then, a self portrait that I hate:

I took a stillframe of the video and everything...it's really hard to illustrate a man with bananas growing out of random orfices without it being creepy.



Oh, and I meant to say this when I posted bunzilla - I am completely in love with the fire in that one.
