This was definatley a big learning experience for me and I took a lot away from it. Before even going into photoshop, the first step was getting a drawing down. When I started we hadn't covered figure drawing in art yet so it definatley took a bit of experimentation to get the figures to look at all proportional.
It took a while to get adjusted to drawing on the tablet as well, the disconnection between your hand and the illustration definatley takes a lot of getting used to, and adjusting to the pen pressure was also rather difficult.
The finished project was much simpler than I imagined because an equal amount of time was spent just trying to learn about the tablet as was actually creating the piece. I would have liked for the figures to be more realistic with shading and actual faces, so hopefully with more practice I'll be able to do that in future digital work.
