All the drawings in this sketchbook thread will be made using a Cintiq mostly with Photoshop...
(Added Aug. 31, 2010 - after mid 2010, most entries will be oil paintings, many of which will have been initially composed and laid out using the Cintiq and Photoshop)

Wow that is some super tight hatching. Keep it up.
I know it's all been done before, I want to do it again. I want to do it again.
Thanks for having a look... I like the idea of a sketchbook thread. I am going to keep adding to this one. Yeah... the Cintiq is quite amazing. Having worked with a tablet for many years, I wasn't sure how I'd react to the Cintiq. I got it a week ago... I'm in love with it. It was love at first stroke...
Wow! Very impressive! Guard that Cintiq with your life! Amazing Hatchwork! Would love to see some more! Keep em coming! I'll be back!
Daryl Zero: "A few words here about following people. People know they're being followed when they turn around and see someone following them. They can't tell they're being followed if you get there first."
One thing I've discovered with the Cintiq is the draw/erase technique. I've used it a bit with tablets as well, but on the Cintiq it seems more like draw/erase on steroids. One Cintiq side button throws the pen tip into draw mode and the button next to it throws it into erase mode. Back and forth with ease, so drawing with eraser is as easy as drawing with pen (pencil). The effects are swift. ...and no smudging or eraser dust...
An experiment - Two drawings of the same setup described below.
The upper drawing is pencil on paper and made by viewing the set up and the reference photo on a flat screen monitor. There was no tracing or other devices used while making the drawing. Completely eyeballed from the setup and the reference photo.
The lower is a digital Cintiq drawing. I traced a simple contour drawing of the major shapes, and then made the drawing while eyeballing the reference photo, comparing it to the drawing as I proceeded, but not using any tracing technique.
Awesome hatching. i love these.
however, if you're concerned with how a cintiq drawn picture looks to a traditional one when viewed on a computer, you can try scanning your graphite ones in greyscale.
anyway, keep it up. your stuff is great
At first I thought I'm looking at pencil sketching. O_O
Love your tight crosshatching. Since you mention it is digital you must be working at a really high resolution to capture those tiny strokes eh?
I need to try a cintiq in the future. What Cintiq model are you using?
What hueyyeng said, I thought they were pencil too! I will not mention the Cintiq.. Doh!
Wow, you really use hatching to your advantage, I've never really used it that much in that way.
u have good job they are clear and good
hueyyeng - Thanks... I'm working at a pretty high resoulution. 200ppi on a final composition that will be 44" x 72"
tokidokizenzen "I will not mention the Cintiq.. Doh!" ... not sure I understand ???
Mischeviouslittleelf - fuzzy... well, the images are knocked way down in resolution for display on the web. Also, these are just sketch guides for a final painting. I'll transfer the composition to the panel and then paint over it with oils.
Teundeboer - I actually got the Cintiq specifically to do drawings. Lot of freedom that does not exist with pencil on paper. No smudging, noe eraser dust... and the most spectacular - setting the stylus button to switch the tip from pencil to eraser. That is an incredible advantage.
rogerb and Swanii - give a shot... it is amazingly fun!
destinyapocalypse - Thanks...
