HAPPY NEW YEAR! Sorry for not posting this sooner been busy with Holiday stuff. As promised I have posted up some pictures of my new Cintiq that my brother Lennard got me as an early Birthday present around mid November (my birthday was on the 26th of December). He also got me the Art pen and Laptop to go with it as well (Ain’t he the best?) He says that this would be something that can help me get my career started. How nice eh?
I don’t know much about Digital Art ’cause I’m more of a traditional artist but I think this would really help me get me into the art industry. I’m teaching myself how to use Adobe Illustrator at the moment, got a whole bunch of books at the Library which I think is alot cheaper than going to courses and all. Apparently with Adobe Illustrator you can make really realistic drawings almost photographic images, which I find really intrigueing. Hopefully soon I can do that. haha.
I also bought myself a SmudgeGuard glove to prevent smudges on the tablet (you can see it on the second picture next to the Moleskine). It can also be used while drawing with traditional media as well so you won’t smudge out your drawing. It’s pretty awesome. I’m also planning on buying the Corel painter X, heard some good stuff about it, but I’ll probably buy that next time once I get the hang of Adobe Illustrator CS3. Anyways, if your a Wacom, Cintiq, or Adobe Illustrator user please drop me a comment and maybe give me some good pointers. Thanks!
