A Girl and Her Bike
There is nothing like a cold combined with day-job-disenchantment to force me to stay at home and draw.
What did I draw in my dark, dungeony apartment? Why- an outdoorsy day-travellin' gal!
By the way, this is also my first piece inked and colored entirely in Adobe Illustrator.
This was no easy feat. On Saturday I spent a good quarter of my day trying to figure out why my Wacom tablet was not registering pen pressure stroke sensitivity. No matter WHAT I did, my line strokes were -UGH- uniform in width!!! (you high strung artistes should surely comprehend my horror while you normal humans can continue rolling your eyes...)
After fruitless searches on the forums with plenty of bitching and complaining to multiple friends at 3 AM on the internet, I finally PRESSED HARDER on my tablet.
And it worked.
Now everyone can collectively roll your eyes at me...ALTOGETHER NOW!
*head slap to forehead* Bah! I blame my cold.
