I've been drawing since I was 5 yr old (maybe younger if you count the scribbles in my parents books) and started drawing digitally around 18 yrs old. I use a Wacom Bamboo Create and Manga Studio 5 for my inks. Sometimes I use Paint Tool SAI for coloring and occasionally Photoshop CS4.|
I'm married (since 2003) to Aremke and own 3 cats. I recently moved to Cheyenne WY from Texas. So far I'm enjoying the area! I hope to get a new job here soon and make some friends.
My hobbies are drawing, wasting time online, reading books, watching comic book movies, and occasionally bicycling (when weather permits). I've been with dA since practically the beginning but you'd never know it by my page views (heeh).

Monoprice Tablet FAQ for Windows 7If you are looking for a specific problem but don't want to read through the whole FAQ, press "Ctrl + f" in your browser. This will allow you to search for specific words (like "jitter" or "Paint Tool SAI") in the FAQ.
Cintiq AlternativeI'm sure we all remember the first time we read about the Wacom Cintiq. A monitor you can draw on... a dream come true. Then you look at the price tag and your heart breaks a bit and your wallet wheezes. The smallest, a 12.1" TFT monitor, is $900. Anything bigger, like the 22" goes for $1,900 and up. For many of us, that's a paycheck, or a couple of months of paychecks. It's not really feasible.
