My new toy!

Product Photography

I watched a film called “Mirror Mask” the other evening and was so inspired by the artwork of David McKean in it that I wanted to get back to doing something creative. However, I knew that in order to do some of the things I wanted to do I would need an art tablet.

Using the mouse just doesn’t give me ability to do fine work and accurate lines or shapes I need. Unfortunately, I simply wasn’t going to be able to afford one for some time.

Imagine my surprise, then, when Christmas morning, I opened my gift from my sister, brother-in-law and niece and found AN ART TABLET!

I will still have to wait until I can get necessary the files copied from the accompanying DVD to my hard drive in order to use the appropriate art programs. Still, just using it with the freebie software I have been using for several years the stylus made it possible to do much finer and accurate work than was possible with the mouse.

It ain’t much, but the following it the first little bit of artwork from scratch using the tablet and my old software…
