The studies are beautiful...why haven't you updated! Update update! I for some reason never read your very first post and I noticed a funny similarity between you and I-- my first tablet was also a crappy Aiptek! I had a 9"x12" Aiptek and then I saved my pennies and upgraded to my 6"x8" Intuos3.
Anyways-- You're doing all these studies but I was really fascinated by some of the paintings you were doing. I'd like to see you try some of your still lives digitally!
