    Sheila got me a doodle pad thingy for the computer, and it is way cool. I'll post some of my doodles here as I do them.

    Drawing it myself. I draw. I'm an artsy-fartsy find of guy. From animated cartoons, to tattoo designs, to full blown oil paintings. I haven't been doing much in recent years aside from some simple cartoons on the computer. Sheila got me a drawing tablet for the computer for Christmas, and I love it. It lets me capture my style in the digital world. Can't do that with a mouse. I use...have been using a drawing program called Paint.net. It is a free download, and has worked well for me. I know there are better programs, but they cost $$$. I will use what I have until I outgrow it.

    There are examples of some of my tattoo type designs, and fantasy art in this section that I scanned, and posted a long time ago.

    Anyways, it feels good to be drawing again. I don't know if Sheila likes me being on the computer ALL the time, but it's fun...and I never have to sharpen my pencils! :cool2:

    Great pictures. What's the program called, the drawing tablet? I wouldn't mind getting my hands on it as I am also one of the artsy ones.

    Jack, I have seen a couple of your paintings...need I even say they are awesome! I apreciate your kind words.

    Travis...My drawing program is low budget. Actually it's free. It's called Paint.net. I like it because I know how to use it. There are better programs, and someday I might upgrade. 'Till then, this works...and is free, which means alot to me. :wink: You can work in separate layers, then flatten them together when you are satisfied.

    The drawing pad is an Aiptek. Again, there are better ones out there, but this one works fine for what I do. Wacom makes all different sorts of drawing pads if you are real serious about you art.

    Would Adobe Photoshop work in place of the Paint.net program?

    If you haven't heard of it, there's a site called deviantart.com, it's a great place for artist to share. If you haven't heard of it, you should definitely check it out sometime.
