New Job, New Toy

Last month I joined Left Brain Games, an internet game company started by an old colleague of mine. I've been helping out with the art production, adding a dash of cuteness here and there. I'm back on a Mac, which I'm a little out of practice on, but I do get to use a Cintiq! We have one of the first models, which doesn't swivel, but is still very cool.

For those of you not familiar with Wacom tablets, it's basically a monitor that you draw directly on with a stylus pen. When you've been working with a traditional tablet for a few years, it's definitely something you've got to wrap your head around.

Most of the artwork I've been doing is vector, so I haven't really played all that much with the airbrush and other pressure sensitive stuff for Photoshop. There is the new version of Painter on my Mac though... :)
