Batmang and his BFF's

I am totally getting into my Cintiq. I've noticed it takes 3x's as long to work on a piece, but I gotta learn sooner or later how to become more efficient, right?

For my artwork lately I've been slipping into only roughs mode. It feels so refreshing to go that route, but man I needed to snap out of it and find a balance. I was fiending to do a polished piece. HAHAHAHA

I haven't drawn many villains EVER, so I decided to do it up with Batman's BFF's and see where it goes from there. If you can't guess their names, then here's a rollcall: Killa Crizock, Clayfizace, and Batamang.

Anywho, this piece was done 100% on my Cintiq from roughs to finishes.

Hope y'all digs!

Oh maaaan, these are freakin' AWESOME!! And Killer Croc & Clayface are 2 of my fav villains from the series!

It's great you are digging the Cintiq! I don't think I can go back to a regular ol' Wacom anymore. It's almost like working on paper!

Keep on rockin'!!

"Santa, can i have a Cintiq?"
- "NO! Work for it bitch!"

I did traditional artwork for years, then switched over to digital and the almighty Cintiq and it really slowed me down AT FIRST, but it seems the more time you put into using it, the faster you can run with it.

Always love looking at your work.
