Finally, the pen for my tablet has been replaced. Now maybe those fancy Photoshop brushes that I downloaded will actually do me some good.
For practice, I have decided to pen the houses I did last year. Compare, if you will, the difference between the original, crappy scan (because these things are just too small to scan very well) and the touched up tablet double. Still not happy with the line quality, but just you wait til I have those pens set up and then hoooey!
