Here’s one of my first digital sketches on a Cintiq, which is essentially a monitor that is directly drawn on with a stylus.  I’m quite impressed by the natural feel of the whole process and see it as a big improvement on a tablet.

Also impressed by the software I’m trying to teach myself; MANGA STUDIO EX. It offers much better control of the character of the ink line than I’m able to get with Photoshop.  Unfortunately it uses a different set of tools from Photoshop and has a badly translated manual so the learning curve has been steep.
