A little while ago I got a Wacom Intuos graphics tablet, which I'd highly recommend as it really is a great piece of kit. I got it for two reasons really, firstly as I wanted to try my hand at digital art, something I've not really done much of in the past. Secondly, as I suffer from RSI, it's a great alternative pointing device to using a regular mouse.
This started out purely as a black and white sketch which I later coloured to produce what it looks like now. I had never used a graphics tablet before so this was just the result of me missing about, trying it out for the first time. Nonetheless I think it turned out to be at least a half decent attempt.
