furry creature

Another Black & White illustration on Painter. It's a good exercise where I learn to use the different brushes better, especially dealing with fur and hair.

The only 'pain' here is with the cintiq!! I have a wide screen monitor as well as a 12"cintiq. All the time I have been working on the cintiq and forgot to pull the file back to the widescreen to check the color and contrast. Cintiq has this problem with color management. The painting would look sharp and have nice color on the cintiq, but when you bring it back to a normal screen, the contrast is lost and the color is cooler. Tonight, I have tried to reset my cintiq's contrast and color temperature. It's still looking much yellower and warmer than normal, but better than what was before, at least. I wish they could fix this problem in the future with the newer version of cintiq. Then, it would really be the 'perfect' digital tool.

To me, hand-drawn is still the best :D
