Your work is already superb, but I know a wacom and digital pen is going to be so much easier on you! image

I too have a wacom tablet, but if I want to make my lines neater I would do it on paper (except for absolutely straight lines.) If you have photoshop or something similar you could use the pen tool which is time consuming and difficult to learn as far as curved lines are concerned. The wacom tablet does make it easier to fix errors and allows you to be more confident in doing a page without the worry of really screwing up. I personally, love using the wacom tablet over the traditional methods of inking.

Thanks for the grand compliment RG2cents!!! :D

Yeah I hear you! I love drawing on paper, but inking just takes some time, and often I make errors I have to then fix in photoshop. While with the Wacom I can simply make the fix right then and tehre, plus there are tons of brushes and strokes I can use to give my art that modern graphic feel, rather then all the lines having the same thickness and stroke, for the most part! I can't wait to start using it! :)

I like Mad Dog's thinking expression in panel 2 with the tongue. That made me laugh.

Wacky pads are neat, I'm told. But I'm too long in the tooth for them. I need the feel of that paper under my hand. (Well, under my cotton glove, actually, as my palms sweat profusely most of the time.)

Looks like Dolly prefers Spot, MD. ;)

Thanks! It took me like 1 hour to get that tongue just right!

Haha! Wacky pads! I'm calling it that from now on.
I might still draw the pictures on paper myself, I'm old fashion that way too! It's the inking I want to clean up

You'll have to let me know how that Wacky tablet works out for you. I've contemplated getting one, but 90% of my drawing is done at work and I doubt they'd let me bring one in.

Will do Steve! They make small ones, so you can just sneak it in your suitcase. If you don't normally bring a suit case to work, just dress up in a top hat and pin stripped jacket so no one suspects a thing! >;-)
