cos often the look of the artwork can be badly influenced by the program used and not bear so much resemblance to the artist's usual style.

until people get a decent amount of experience with it.

A while ago, I decided to start trying out digital colouring more, but I didn't work on it as much as I could have.

Why should they? It's just another medium.

Yeah, I'm not really trying to hide the tablet side of things, just get it to look more like how I already ink. If I'd started learning to ink with a tablet, it'd probably look more tablet.......y but all my inking experience for the past, what, year has been brushwork.

Shading it a bit darker than the face?

Illustrator seemed to want to make this double in resolution when I was exporting to a psd. It also ate the layers and crapped them out into one.

Hand lettering does not work at all with a tablet. Spotting blacks does not work at all with illustrator.

But complaints aside, I could see myself doing something entirely by tablet in the future.

Strange but awesome stuff, Claude.

I'm pretty proud of this. I've been working on my art for the Rift Rippers a ton, and I think it's starting to show.
A short character profile for those interested:
Name: Zeria G.
Eye Color: Lightning blue.
Hair: Dirty blonde.
Age: 19
Talents: Astounding technological and mechaniacal empathy, specializes in explosives/small objects which can cause massive destruction. Black belt in Hapkido.
Personality: Explosive, honest, rash, compassionate, and rebellious.
Greatest Achievment: "The Neutralizer" a device which combines several effects into a single wave of negation. Causes magical effects/powers, electronic devices, hazardous chemical reactions, psionic effects/abilities, and effects triggered by pheremones and hormones within the blast radius to cease functioning and block further use for an indefinite period of time. Very risky, as it also prevents Zeria from using her other gadgets and Rift magic.

Your journal comics are the best Merc. Plus, your handwriting is surprisingly very neat, which is rare but great :D
