On the "Table" today
The Cintiq isn't really a table, but I'm doing cover thumbnails today. Here is a cover idea that I really love but I missed the mark for the cover. I need to have Wolvie in costume and don't really think it would work the same way. No big deal. That's the beauty of doing something this small and loose. You don't mind if you miss the mark, no harm, no foul.
I love doing cover thumbs digitally as it allows me to do a full color mock up on the fly. Before I'd have to sketch after sketch, wasting a tone of paper while I looked for the composition that I wanted. Then scan it and do the color stuff. I'm not going to pretend that it was back breaking, but once I started handling this stage on the Cintiq, I really felt more free to try all types of things.
