2013 is the Year of the Water Snake.
One of the most convenient parts about having a character who is a giant divine serpent is that you don't have to think very hard on making New Years pictures. Originally, I intended to post this at the beginning of the year, but my coloring depressed me. Well, it still does, but one of my goals this year is to learn how to color. But, it's the Chinese New Year and I wanted to at least have some art submitted by then so I'd at least get it in on somebody's New Year. So, Happy New Year.
The one thing I want to know: I inked this in Photoshop from a scanned sketch. Is there a way to ink on the tablet that does not require me to contort myself in some kind of bizarre-o artist's yoga just to have steady lines? Because this is a disheartening and rather painful (to my wrist) endeavor. Or is the only answer more practice drawing lines on a tablet?
