I've been working on this project sporadically due to time constraints. It's coming along although more slowly than I'd like. A double-edged sword that experience in Photoshop is the potential for zooming in very closely. I can become intensely focused on details in one section of the image and zoom out to find no progress or mismatched progress. To combat this during my last coloring session, I decided to just start filling color in all over the place. The color is more refined in areas where I have spent a little more time. I would like to finish this over the next two weeks. It seems like a reasonable goal if I invest significant time into it. -Beth
I bought a Wacom a few years back but never felt comfortable using it. Since that point, I lost the pen that works with it but just replaced it. I'm trying again. I have developed decent control over the mouse, but the pen has to be better. This time around, I have been more diligent about learning to adjust settings for the pen within the Wacom application. On default, the pen works quite nicely. I have an inexpensive model, the CTH-670 and am using it in Photoshop. My first experiment was the creation of this pumpkin. I intend to make more Halloween art, because Halloween is right around the corner. -Beth
