Robot...




I bought a Wacom Intuos3 tablet a few weeks ago. With a Wacom tablet you can reproduce traditional mediums like pencil, oil, watercolor and you can use it to create vector work as well. This nifty new toy is not as easy to use as I thought it would be. Not that it's impossible to use but you can't just jump right into it and paint away. Maybe the fact that I've avoided painting like the plague my entire life is not helping me any. I'm more accustomed to the flat color, vector work I've been doing for the past ten years. So, I have to work on traditional painting techniques now to get things to look right.

Anyway the image of the robot is what I've come up with. After tinkering around with with it for the past few weeks this is my first attempt at creating something halfway decent.

What did you use for vector before the tablet?
