UPDATED FOR 2015!
NEW REWARD ADDED!!
My pen-name is Tsubasa Yozora, and I'm a Comic Book Artist & Graphic Designer. I've been published by Bluewater Comics, and Viper Comics, and I have my own free creator owned series: 'HORIZON:E
' You can also see my profile at ComicVine
. I'm also a regular artist in ComicBookResources.com's Blog feature: "The Line It Is Drawn.
I'm currently a strictly digital artist, and this gives me a lot of flexbility and speed when creating comics, and as such I'm currently working on a few indie comics, and pitch proposals! Working is fun and meeting talented creators and writers is big part of that. Since I started drawing, my dream has been to someday work for Marvel Comics, and I'm working hard to reach it.
Originally, usinging a tablet was like trying to do detailed work with a big crayon but I've gotten good at drawing digitally over the years. Though, I've realized I can't handle my current and future workload unless I streamline my tools. Using new Photoshop plug-ins, and improving my Path library help a lot for this, but I want to go a step further. I want to upgrade my drawing tablet.UPDATED OBJECTIVE (2015):
My original goal was to raise enough money to upgrade my drawing equipment from a Wacom Intuos 4 small tablet (bought in 2008), to a Wacom Cintiq Companion Hybrid
, (MSRP $1,499) BUT at this years CES Wacom unvieled their new line-up of Cintiq Companions. Since the prices are similar, I've decided to change my goal into the new Standard Cintiq Companion 2
is basically a screen that registers a pen's position and let's you draw directly on the screen. It's a tool used by professional designers, animators, and artist. It comes in different sizes and with different features, but for my needs this version, the Companion Hybrid, is the best. Here's a demo of the 24" Cintiq!
It is my sincere belief that this tool will improve my work, and enhance my workpace! REWARDS?
