I'd love your thoughts on this strip I finished over the weekend!
I am new to SVS and I am loving it. The other day, I started drawing on a Wacom tablet for the first time - it's deffinetly an adjustment and took some time getting used to.
I am sharing my first couple of drawings with the tablet. I guess what I am looking for is some advice on what brushes to draw with, and or colors or settings to use . . . everything I have drawn so far kind of has this airbrushed weak look to it and I am not sure how to achieve a different look. Hopefully you guys can make some recommendations!

P.S. any other feedback is of course super welcome!
I feel your pain. I just went through this very same experience. I got a tablet and tried it for like a day and I HATED it! I stopped using it for like a week. Then after that, I decided I really needed to try again. I forced myself to use it for like 5 days. The first day was pretty rough: my hand felt awkward, my drawings were lame and messed up, my technique took a huge hit . . . I was pretty discouraged. BUT, I kept using it.
By day 3 or so I was starting to get the hang of it. One thing that helped me, was learning how to move the canvas. So if you hold down the space bar, your cursor turns into a hand and you can move the canvas around — for some reason, just learning that little thing helped me a lot. I also watched a few youtube videos and talked to some friends.
In the end I would just say "stick with it!" Now I feel like it is such a powerful tool and it helps me to make finished art work REALLY a lot quicker than traditional media.
