"Taloned Tiger Tribal Tattoo Taunting Thumper"

In celebration of Chinese New Year. Bye, bye Year of the Tiger, hello Year of the Rabbit.
2 colors on asphalt with 30 dpi halftones.
*fun fact - This is the first design I drew entirely with my tablet. I think I'm starting to get the hang of it.

Looks great. What kind of tablet do you have?

I have this one. http://www.wacom.com/bamboo/bamboo_fun.php
I really like it and feel like it was a good choice for my first ever tablet.

I have a slightly older version of that tablet and I force myself to use it every once in a while, but I just can't seem to get comfortable with it.

I love the contrast of the animal shapes with the rounded background as well as the bright pink with black. I hope more people see this and vote so I can buy one!

It took me a long time to get comfortable. I couldn't get used to looking at the screen while drawing off to the side, but now it's much easier. My hand still hurts after I'm finished drawing. I'm probably holding the pen too tight in an effort to maintain control, but I don't know how to change that.

I'm still struggling with my tablet too. For the moment, I use it primarily for touch-up work, but I'm slowly trying to make it my primary tool. It's tough because I've worked with pencil and paper for so long.

Can someone more experienced in critiquing t'shirt, explain why this shirt isn't garnering more votes?

Aw, thanks! I probably should have drawn a turtle.
