Tar Contest Entry 1 by DeepChrome Tar Contest Entry 1 by DeepChrome
For ~ScreaminCricket's contest--depictions of his character Tar.

Check his latest journal for the contest rules if interested. A shame it'll end tomorrow, but ohwell. :shrug:

I put this in fanart as it's technically fanart of his Tar character.

Enjoy.

Drawn in Photoshop 7.0 with varying brush opacities. Used Aiptek 9 by 11 digital pen and tablet.

Tar copyright ScreaminCricket. :D

Thanks! :)

I used to have an Aiptek. It's okay as a starter, but if you really want a tablet to last you the while, I'd highly recommend the Wacom. I spent several years on an Aiptek 12000U and after about a year, I noticed a distinct line-wobble problem that wasn't really dealt with until I switched to a Wacom Intuos. :) I think it's something in their pens--I hope they've changed that by now...

But I would still recommend the Wacom. My Intuos is 2 years going and still strong. :w00t: I have a friend who has had a Graphire for a number of years and only now is it really showing any wear and tear.

Thanks for the advice! The Bamboo it is. Its a good 30 quid cheaper than the Aiptek (although its only an A6 instead of an A4, but I regularly use an A6 sketchbook, so hey).


And I must say again, spiffing picture!

Thank you. :)

And glad to hear you've made up your mind. The Bamboo is pretty close to an Intuos from the looks of it, so I think you'll be pretty happy. :nod:

ScreaminCricket's character. Guy's basically a shapeshifter that shifts into black shiny ooze (Hence the name Tar)...he's a loner. Rejected by society for being a freak. And of course, he's got angst.

Cricket wanted to get some new pictures of Tar from other people's viewpoint, so he ran the contest. :nod:

Hope that explains it.

And thanks for the comment. :D

Thank you. It ends on the 17th (Saturday). Cricket had to correct me in IM.

So that's two days to pop something together. :)
