Gotten into digital painting a few days ago, it is very fun. I'm planning on purchasing a tablet for my birthday, Wacom 4x5 Graphire, most likely black or pearl. It's 80 dollars on newegg, just wish it didn't come bundled with all that useless stuff like software that I already have (better versions of) and cheap wireless optical mouse. But it's worth it, there are a lot of things I simply can't make without one.
As of right now, though, you shouldn't even care because you won't be seeing my art. Check my back-entries to see why.
