This is my first ever sketch with a Wacom Tablet. Loads of fun.

About these ads

The Ogre is a pizza delivery monkey. He's finally come up with a webcomic concept he likes and is finally making a go of it. The Ogre loves many things and hates few, however he has issues with almost everything (mostly because he has issues--he's started having acne around and on his nose and sitting place again). The Ogre is forty-somethin' flippy years old for goodness sakes and is loosing his mind.

    If my sister had been a boy, this would have been her name.

  2. First one?!!! Wow!
    Great going, Aaron!
    [using the same one and I now wonder how I worked all those years without it!!!!] :-)

    • Thanks Marina! Yeah, I have a lot to learn about using. It definitely works more like a brush than a pen. It’s fun to use though and fast, which is nice. Thanks for stopping by, I appreciate it!

    Ok – is it weird if I say this is quite a sexy sketch? :)

    I’ve been missing your blog. Life is just so hectic right now, I’m chasing my tail all the time! lol!

    Hi, Aaron! I’ve just bought a Wacom tablet as well. Still learning. Which software do you use while drawing with it?

    Anyway, great portrait of General Sherman!

    • I’m using PhotoShop Elements. I can’t afford the full CS6 Suite, so the cheap stuff will have to do. I’m having a lot of fun and difficulty as well. The skills I’ve developed after years of traditional media (painting, drawing, ink and cartooning) are helping, but are also an impediment sometimes. I’ll figure it out. Thank you also for the compliment. General Sherman, for all his ruthlessness, was one of my favorite Civil War figures.
