Painting with Cintiq, New Winds

Last week it was my first time ever I got to get close to one of them Cintiq screens, and I can only say it feels as it could develop into some form of addiction to drawing :D Really great tool! So, if there is good 20 minutes free, I exercise in sketching. So these two below are my first attempts (:]

This octopus, I imagine, should be first of the series of sea creatures, which I am studying for a personal collaborative character design project (more about it when I upload few more examples in the future). I study real life reference , but to make it more of a interesting task,   as well as explore character colour palettes, I just experiment with colour and composition

 Another hour-long drawing was done for a topic by Illustration Friday Challenge:

It's been 3 solid  weeks of drawing every day! ( yay!) and I feel like my hand is back from the dead, so to say. I hope there will be lots more to share (:]

  2. yep! LOVE the octopus JJ. So - how's everything going? I must say I'm missing seeing you in the CGAA studio - not quite the same without you being there, somehow bright-eyed, but always the earliest! Drop me a line when you're not painting Octupi and tell me your news. I thought of you actually - Monsters Inc was on the television - I kept thinking 'yoyos'... :D
