Oh, And This

For those of you who can't watch the video, here's something to look at.
This is the picture I was experimenting with in the video, which I said I might not finish, as the point of it was just to play around with some of the Cintiq's features. This is about as finished as it's likely to get, so here you go:

The person pictured is an actress named Aviva. She's probably most known for her role as Nicola in the movie Superbad. She was the girl that hooked up with McLovin. Oh, umm, spoiler alert, I guess.
Obviouslsy this looks a bit different from my usual work. That's because the Cintiq lends itself to working freehand a little better than my tablet did, so I decided to take advantage of that with this little experiment.
Normally I use the Pen tool to block out the shapes, then fill in the details - shadings, highlights, and features - in freehand. I may make a video demonstrating that at some point, but it probably won't end up posted here.
In this case I sketched out the entire image freehand, then painted over the sketch.

Just watched the video on FB. I'm impressed. I knew it would be cool to work with, but it looks like it will make a night and day difference in how you do your work now. Very cool.
