So I finally decided to start experimenting with digital painting with my wacom tablet. This is my first attempt at "painting" digitally. I wouldn't liken it to painting because there's no physically tactile quality to the way in which you apply your strokes or the final image itself. Plus you're holding something with a point while you do brush-like strokes... not very intuitive in that respect. I'm more of a traditionalist and I don't know how much satisfaction I can really get through digital painting. Maybe one day when you can actually pick up a paint brush and paint on a screen I'll dig the process more. In any case, its definitely a handy thing to know in the world of animation.
