Few months ago I bought an Intuos 4 M tablet. But as I haven't have much leisure time (everyday work + need to make jpg's from RAW's which queue was very, very long), it sat all the time in a drawer. Last week I finally decided to take it out thinking, if I already bought it, then I must use it too. So, I connected the device, took the pen, watching out of window and thinking "Now what?" First I took a photo I captured in the summer, a closeup of a grasshopper. To get a feeling of a pen, I just traced the contours of the insect. Came out like a child drawing :) suitable for children color book (unfortunately I cannot show it as DT didn't find it good enough. It could be true because if you do something first time, it's pretty sure you find it good, due to emotions).
Next I tried to do something by myself from the beginning. I don't know where I got the idea but I draw an rat or a mouse standing on a piece of cheese. Doesn't look like pro's work, but good enough for first strivings.
At some point I'd like to try out "real" illustrations with clear lines, but again.. time, time, time. First time trying takes always lot of time and that's what is shortage.
