Fun with Bamboo


It's been a while since my last update, I'm hoping the next one won't take so long.

I've finally got myself a nice powerful computer at home with the internet and a new tablet. I picked up the Bamboo Fun because it's the only tablet in the Bamboo line that isn't super small (it's about the size of the second smallest Intuos tablet) and it's about half the price of an Intuos tablet. Of course its sensitivity is about half that of the Intuos line, but at that cost, it's good enough for me.

So here are two drawings I did tonight as I'm getting more accustomed to this tablet. Two of my favourite Japanese actors:

Chiaki Minoru. Drawn from a still from Rashomon.

Asano Tadanobu. Drawn from a photo.

I'm working on a comic about four Japanese characters and I'm basing two of them on these guys.
