Illustration Attempt

So, If you look at any of my past work, the lines are clean and tight. That is because my method required me to sketch and ink on paper. Afterwards I scan the image in and use photoshop to add in my colors one layer at a time. Today for the first time ever I attempted to do my line work with my tablet. I honestly didn’t like it.
My hand isn’t that steady. And, lately my tablet lag has been so bad that I have been having trouble with photoshop on that front. So, it was hard to navigate a decent line without shaking all over the place. The concept of drawing with the tablet rather than on paper is a direction that I desire to go, because I have watched a few speed draw videos on Youtube that inspired me to attempt the image in this post. I am a long way off from being that talented. But, if you want to improve you have to start somewhere. With that, I think I need to update my computer to get rid of that extreme tablet lag for starters.
