@theblackcateyes: Was that based from the photo of yourself? xD It's pretty good, other than what Brent pointed out.

And here's the coloured version of the doodle I made earlier:

Paint Tool SAI. It's a rather nifty program to use.

The low end Cintiqs are pretty much a thousand dollars, so yeah, they're rather expensive.

I don't really see why I would want a cintiq when I can get a bamboo or something (being that I'm only drawing and not doing professional concept art or anything of the sort).

Because those things are amazing? But yes, I agree - I'm quite happy with my little Bamboo, you don't really need anything more.

Had I $3000 to blow, though...

Bamboos don't have a screen, like so.
Whereas the screen is pretty much the main selling point of Cintiqs, like so.

It just takes time to draw without looking at the pen for Bamboo tablets (Or any tablets with pen).
It took me roughly 3 months for me though but it was all worth it. Just needed to use it everyday or at least often.

You can get a slightly dated refurbished TabletPC computer pretty cheap. I had the (2005)ThinkPad X41 Tablet for only 200USD. It has a wacom digitizer and the screen was 12" 1024x768. (and precision of the digitizer was quite dandy too, many many times more precise than the visible pixels on screen)

I think it's a good idea if you can't afford a cintiq and don't like bamboo tablets. I believe rick uses a newer model for the digital art in the comics.

Anyways. some more art from one of my favorite artists!
