Drawing with a Wacom Tablet

I forgot to post this! It's been hanging out as a draft since 2011. Enjoy!

Drawing digital art in Photoshop using a Wacom tablet takes practice. First you have to calibrate your pen settings, then you have to learn how to draw all over again. And then you have to learn how to use Photoshop. It is so hard to get smooth lines! But practice makes perfect, right? So I'm practicing...

I made this drawing of my husband's Night Elf Druid character in the World of Warcraft. It started out as a pencil sketch, then I scanned it into my laptop, hooked up my Wacom tablet and started inking, digitally.

Then I started coloring... yeah. I'm no Mike Krahulik, that's for sure. But I think it still looks kinda cool.

If you recall my previous post about sketching, this was the pencil sketch I started with.
