Monday Bunday: Graphic!

Last Friday, I became the proud owner of a Wacom Bamboo graphics tablet. What fun! I spent the weekend learning how to use it with the bundled software, which includes Corel Painter Essentials. This allows one to paint and sketch freehand:












Or take an existing photo:
















Convert it into a sketch:















And then paint it using different colors and effects:















Don't tell Cadbury, okay? He might be upset to learn he's on his way to becoming the new Blue Bunny mascot.

Have a fun and creative week, friends!

Cool tablet! Cadbury says he wants the same kind of creative deal Wegman's weimaraners get.

It looks like fun. I'm sure Cadbury would come around.

Cool bunny sketch!

Both are beautiful. Did you get Cadbury's permission before colorizing him Purple? at least you're not dying him. I read that dying dogs to look like other animals is the new craze in China or Japan, can't remember which.

That top sketch is awesome! I'd love to have a print of it!

My word verif is hotest, as in "Niblet thinks Lola's the hotest!"
