new sketch and possibly a new character?

I finally have a new and improved way to draw!  I got a cintiq of my very own.  I've had one at work for a while, but if I wanted to do any drawing at home, it either had to be awkwardly accomplished on my wacom tablet, or on a piece of paper.  And who wants to draw on paper?  All those trees screaming in pain as someone uses an exacto knife to cut each piece of paper off of it....or, at least, that's how I assume paper is made.  It can't be squished into pulp and then flattened.  Or, what would be a tedious process, trees were broke up into splinters and then glued together.  Or into long thin strips and woven together.

In any case - it's like my food - I don't care where it comes from, as long as it tastes good.  And doesn't give me ebola.  Sadly, even that statement isn't true.  I'm more interested in how my food is treated before it's slaughtered for me - and I can't eat at a fast food restaurant because of their evil ways.  It's my own fault for looking into it.

Anyway - This is the first sketch from my first attempt at working on my brand new cintiq.
This was all done in Adobe Photoshop.

Also - I got this sucker more than 2 weeks ago, but I have an older HP laptop and the technology of the cintiq aren't completely compatible, so I had to figure that out.  Turns out one has to open the back of the cintiq and unplug the cord for the DVI cable and replace it with a VGA cable.
