The Dollhouse

So I got a new toy at work. A Wacom Cintiq! Still getting used to it, but so far, I really, REALLY like it. It' just yet another tool to work with, and it takes some getting used to, but the precision is pretty close to drawing with a pencil. I was able to zoom in real close and redraw a lot of the lines on this piece with the tablet, that I would have had a lot more trouble doing with a regular Wacom Tablet. I hope to keep using this tablet and try and save up for my own one day (if I ever hit the lottery), so I hope to get a lot better. I REALLY want to try Manga Studio Pro, but don't know if work would let me order it here, even though I would totally pay the $30-$40 for it myself.

The piece above and below is a character from the AWESOME book from Soleil Productions, called Sky Doll, and it is one of my favorite books, especially now that Marvel Comics is translating it from French! Please check it out if you haven't already, and there are links to the artists' blogs below (Alessandro Barbucci & Barbara Canepa)!

Oh, also be sure to check out, no, BUY the Wonder Woman Animated Movie! I can't tell you how AWESOME this movie is, and it proves that, one, you can make an amazing animated movie once again, if you have a really good story to tell, and two, that Wonder Woman IS a great character and can be done really well.

So be sure to check out Sky Doll, and Wonder Woman Movie, and save up that money for a Wacom Cintiq (! I gotta get back to work on the comics, and start a new drawing of more AWESOME Geoff John's created characters, the Indigo Tribe!

Below is the tones and pencils to my Sky Doll Pin-UP. Enjoy!
