A while ago I mentioned I was looking into getting myself a pen tablet for my computer. If you are unsure as to what those are, they are a little drawing tablet that you can hook up to your laptop (or computer) and use like a mouse. They’re good for making digital images and retouching photos, and I wanted one so I could draw cartoons.
Like of cats riding unicorns into the sunset:
Or just generally for my cartoon stories.
I have been thinking about getting one for at least a year and just haven’t gotten around to it.
Welp, Evan got me one for my birthday!
Best gift ever. I like that it is useful and practical, and also thoughtful. Winnie likes it too.
So now I am teaching myself how to use it.
Normally I just draw my cartoons on my laptop’s trackpad, with my finger, which is not exactly ideal. This will be much better and I am very excited about it, but it also feels a lot different. It feels like I am actually drawing on paper, so there is a bit of a learning curve.
I need to practice, and I can only draw so many cats. I need ideas of new things. This is where I need your help. I want your suggestions!
If you could give me a drawing suggestion, that would be faaabulous. Just leave a comment on this post with your picture idea and I will draw that puppy up and then post them all next week. You can send me an email also, if you don’t feel comfortable commenting.
Hopefully I can draw them all, depending how many suggestions I get. We shall see. Your idea may get cut, I’m sorry. Please don’t be offended if that happens. It’s likely your suggestion was just crappy (I kid).
And on the other hand, hopefully at least one person leaves a comment and you don’t abandon me here in my time of need.
Thanks in advance, friends!
