Alas, a more succesful drawing:

I think I'm getting marginally better at this to be honest:

It's the Cheshire Cat from Alice In Wonderland. It's proportion is a bit wrong, but considering how much getting used to this tablet takes - I'm rather proud of it. Hopefully I'll be able to use this tablet for more useful purposes in the future. And will get much better at proportion etc.

A simple first attempt at an eye after trying to get used to my graphics tablet:

It's not the greatest piece of art in the world, but I'm just getting used to my graphics tablet and I'm rather proud of it:

Not a particularly good drawing, but a good example about how I'm getting used to using the tablet. Hopefully, as I get used to it, my drawings on it will be much better. Then I can use it to make amazing things - if I'm not getting ahead of myself here.

Aha, I have a new graphics tablet!

Well, new is debateable - it's actually second hand and the nib on the pen is getting a bit worn. However, it's still amazing. Also, incredibly useful. Particularly if you wish to do things such as animation. Here it is in all it's glory:

By the way, as I'm guessing I'll have to do some explanation into what a graphics tablet is:

A graphics tablet device plugged into a computer that means you can hand-draw images and put them onto the computer... Kind of like drawing with a pencil and paper but it appears on the screen. It's difficult to use but is easier than drawing with the mouse and very helpful for making animations with - especially when I get the supposedly amazing software I am currently downloading.

Aha, this is going to take some getting used to - however, it is simply beautiful in itself. I bet I can make some remarkable things here...
