Day 179: Finished my first illustration on the Cintiq

I am quite impressed by this thing, the colours are amazing and on point, and my ability to do lineart has actually improved when I moved to this device. Not necessarily an improvement in technique, but I am noticing a huge improvement in how clean my lines end up being. I can do longer and smoother strokes, and it makes a world of difference to my workflow.

I didn’t push that many new limits on this piece, mostly did similar techniques to what I have in the past – But I am still learning the ins and outs of a new tool so it felt good to compare it to my usual process. The increased accuracy actually allowed me to do all the colours on one layer, and all the shading on another – Separate for BG and characters of course.. But that is a pretty big deal!
