more like 20min on this and 20 min wasted on 1 or 2 or 10...other ideas that didn't pan out.

Did this at work and checked CGtalk on a different computer and realized how off the monitors are in this lab... Damn huey pros. They really do more harm that good.
short story. Also no wacom drivers, so no pressure sensivivity

"His name's Mr. Blue. Coldest killer in Shanghai."

"Why the hell's that? He has a red suit and red hair."

"Boy, in the mafia you don't get named after you suit. You get named after your attitude."

Screenview of color profile errors. ( from above.

Final version.
