In 1999, I bought my first ever digital drawing tablet. It was a WACOM Graphire 1.
This image was the very first one I colored using that tablet. The line art itself is older, probably done around 1996 – 97, seeing the style I was currently experimenting with.
In July of 2006, I upgraded to the Intuos3 A5. A few weeks ago, I came across the old image again and thought “What would it look like if I had the skill and equipment that I have today?”
Digitally inked in Painter IX. Colored in Photoshop CS2 with the WACOM Intuos3 A5.
