So I got a Cintiq the other day, which, for the uninformed, is essentially a computer monitor that you can draw on. A lot of animation studios are switching over to doing storyboards digitally, so it's high time I moved in to the 21st century and started to properly learn how to use the computrator. So here's my first attempt using the Cintiq, using a drawing program called Sketchbook Pro. It's pretty cool to use, but I still have a lot to learn...

Ok, it's been over a month since I last posted anything, but I have been working on stuff, I swear! I've been collaborating with Paul French on a cartoon series pitch which we're hoping to submit by the year's end. Maybe once that goes thru the whole shebang at CN, I'll post some of our concept sketches. In the interim, please enjoy (or not) this commission piece I finally got around to doing for CGS forum member Johnny M (listen to his witty repartee on the Legion of Dudes podcast, hosted by those good ol' boys over at Half Hour Wasted). It's a little late on the delivery, but I did get it done. The inking is so-so (especially the treatment of the water. What was I thinking?), but I think it turned out ok. Hopefully I'll get around to posting some other doodles before the holiday season.
