Since I upgraded-by-stroke-of-fate to a Macbook Pro recently, my good old 9x12 Aiptek 8000u tablet officially became outmoded. Its original drivers hadn't been supported since OS 9, and it only worked with some serious McGuyvering. (I think a third-party tablet "driver" that requires the installation of two programs, won't recognize the tablet unless the computer booted up with it plugged into the USB port, and typos "hotkey" as "hoykey" is probably the software equivalent of a cement mixer motor and two strips of duct tape.)
It had also been used and abused pretty constantly for around five years, so it was high time to invest in a new tablet. I bit the bullet, used up a good half of my savings and got a (refurbished) Wacom Intuos 3. I haven't stopped gushing over it since it arrived. :D
First thing I did was scribble a rainbow-colored OMG LOOKIT I CAN DRAW squeepic, and the second thing I did was this. Random anime girl with ponytail and Photoshop brushified background! ...I can be more original than this, I swear.
The eyes and mouth are not my usual pseduo-anime style, so if they look a little wonky, it's because I was just playing around with something different.
