Secret On The Moon page 11b by CarlPearce
Secret On The Moon page 11b
In space, no one can hear you gasp. But they may notice if you threw a baseball on the moon. Possibly.

Could anyone help with a bit of tech advise?

I really need to buy a drawing tablet that I can draw directly onto the screen for work and with a baby on the way, there's no way I could justify shelling out over £1000 for one.

I'm currently eying up the Huion GT 220 and the Wacom Cintiq 13HD, which both come in at around £550.

If anyone has used both, which do you honestly think would be the better purchase out of the two?

Cheers!

Wow, you have a great gallery! I'd follow you right away, but the mobile app doesn't currently let me do so for some unknown reason.

Thanks. I've got loads of ethnicly diverse character in my folio. I illustrated a few titles for Tamarind books over the past 10 years.

I noticed!  It's good to see.  Part of the objective of our group is to bring overlooked ethnicity (specifically Afrocentric ethnicity) into the mainstream a little more.  I applaud your effort!

If I'm honest, it's not a conscious effort. It's just how it comes out.

I come from a very rural area in North Wales. There aren't many varying shades of skin colour around here other than the lads who work in the local Indian Restaurant, for no other reason than how remote we are. However, I'm a huge movie fan. Always have been from a very young age. I'm used to a world of different races through the movies, but being from a smaller area, there has never been any issues over race bias, like there is in cities. I've never seen the point of issues due to how people look or where they're from. If anything I find it more interesting meeting someone who isn't like me.

So I naturally add different races to my stories as a reflection on how I see the world. Publishers saw that and took me on for that reason. I just present the world around me. Well. The movie world around me. If it was the actual world around me it'd be mountains, lakes and rough seas with more sheep than people, ha ha.
