Photoshop 1: Getting to grips with graphics tablets

This rather tiny mantis is the result of 3 hours work! I really struggled to use the pen and tablet while looking at the screen.  I couldn't judge the scale and relative sizes, got confused about layers, and my first attempt kept turning red for no reason....I've put it on here as a benchmark so that when I manage to paint something reasonable I'll be able to see an improvement!

  1. your pen and tablet debut - and it is unmistakably a praying mantis! Soon, this new way of painting will be second nature and you'll be knocking out digital paintings with habitual ease - just keep at it!
