I used my Cintiq to draw this horse.  It is based on a graphite drawing that I did in 2009 which hangs directly in front of my art desk.  This made it an excellent candidate for recreating it on the tablet.  I was able to simulate the graphite look to my satisfaction.  With the added features of a warm filter and the de-saturating tool I was then able to alter the drawing with the touch of a button.

I am still stumbling along with the how-to-do-it portion as I use Photoshop tools.  The most valuable thing I learned while working on this project here was “save” often and when I want to try out something different or outrageous I should do it on a separate layer.  I had to ditch the whole works about half way through and start all over to really “learn” the importance of those two  rules!
