Thanks for asking me to join in on the fun, guys!

This piece was done 100% on the Cintiq

Hope y'all digs!

awesome work man! just love your shape design and the greenscale. You should do one of your vinyls in a greenscale, that would kick some serious arse.

Thats awesome - you'll have to excuse my ignorance but you did the whole design using the cintiq?
That's nuts - how do you control the steadiness of the pen?
Once again, cheers for sharing this - always a delight to see your stuff.

Jeff said...

Very cool. Lines are very clean and straight for using a Cintiq. You obviously have a steadier hand than I do. As always, love the characters and love the colors!

Fabian said...

Dear Mister Cheeks,
I'm a HUGE French Fan of your works, especially on Spectacular Spider-man.
Your skills just turn me upside down!!!!
A friend of mine shows me your artbooks, signed and dedicated, above all, just to make me crazy^^

I just want to say that I will follow your blog and share this with others^^

Hope you're know that you're quite popular in France!!!!!!!!!

Best regards and as I conclude at the end of each com':
"Keep Drawin'!!!!!!!!!!!"

(Yeah, I Know, not so original...)

Cheeks said...

thank you, everyone!

Jason, you ain't ignorant at all. yes, i did start to finish on the cintiq. for some of the lines i had to use my full arm motion, and try and try again until i got the line i wanted.

Awesome stuff! Good meeting you today.
yes the Cintiq does rock. Sketchbook pro works beautifully with the cintiq and solves all the steady line problems...and at $100 you can't go wrong.
