RD - Peaceful Holidays by TamarinFrog RD - Peaceful Holidays by TamarinFrog
I'm on holiday trip, meaning I have only my laptop and my bamboo tablet with me. I have barely used them for digital works so I wanted to practice with them a little. And lord is it harder to work with these conditions! I am a LOT slower with this than normally and my lineawork is not as good as usually. But, with practice I'll get faster and more confident. It's good to know I have somewhat reliable digital art source if I ever really need one when travelling. (This is actually a work day for me thus it was good to practice).

But MAN! Photoshop decided to glitch and I actually lost the first version of this... I refused to accept a defeat and did this again. 
I'd like to thank you all for GREAT name suggestions for this mawile character and while I am not 100% sure, I am leaning a bit to name: Isabelle. 
So, Isabelle is making sure that this year a CERTAIN IMP is is not stealing our Christmas. Have a peaceful Christmas and holidays everybody!

"Nothing will stop me from getting these cookies... NOTHING!!!" (Man, Isabelle really has him where she wants to :XD:).

And what do you mean the linework not being as good? This looks great!

... What do you usually use for linework though?

I use other pen tablet. Intuos 3 and I am much more comfortable with it. It just took me 3 times more time to draw this than it would have took on my main computer. But I have barely used my bamboo so I am not surprised. Plus I did this while on kitchen table. Not the most ergonomic place to do computer work. XD

Oh yeah, I've heard the Bamboo is more slippery than the Intuos and something about a built-in Line Stabilizer (Could have misunderstood that).

What I do to make it easier to use is to lay a sheet of notebook paper over the Bamboo and use the pen over it: feels like you're using an actual pen on paper and not a tablet, and since the paper is thin it doesn't affect the response (Though chances are you already do that, don't you?).

Haven't used the paper trick. Might try that but I'd love to learn to use it normally too.

That what you get for being naughty, you thief.

Of course, someone has to be in charge of keeping it peaceful. :XD:

Man, how I wish something like this would happened to the jerks setting off rockets near my house both during Christmas and New Year's Eve.
