I've spent almost 9 months lurking here on DA, meeting folks, picking my jaw up from the floor at some piece of art I've seen here.
So I decided, finally, that I was going to take the plunge - bought my first tablet (Kanvus Artist 127 - which I believe is rather crappy in comparison to a Wacom). No matter, I shall soldier on.
Hard to explain, exactly, why I'm doing this. I used to draw my fingers down the bone with a pencil and some A3 sheets. Grew up, got a job, got lazy... got bored. I came across this site, I suppose, like I came across 4chan... by horrible accident, but a good one - like a slo-mo explosion of some irritating person's head.
So here I am... desperately trying to dust off my mostly un-learnt skills (because they were all replaced by technical crap), and my head only has finite space.
