Digital Portrait

Last week, John Kuramoto asked me to draw a bio pic for him which will appear in the upcoming Secret Identities: The Asian American Superhero Anthology.  John wrote a story to be drawn by Christine Norrie for the book that will be out in 2009.  My task was to create a realistically drawn head shot in the style of the ones already featured on the website.

Last Spring, I indulged and purchased a Wacom Cintiq tablet.  This wonderful toy turned out to be an invaluable tool on the various coloring projects I have since been a part of.  While I have mostly only used the tablet to select and color certain parts of a scanned-in drawing, this project gave me the opportunity to draw directly onto the computer.  I am quite pleased with the result!
