Thumbs up Is it possible to do the same thing with a mouse

First I have to say that your drawing is astonishing and especially the use of light and the set off the different shots. SPLENDIDE !!!
Like I said inthe Title I'm wondering if it's possible to do the same thing with a mouse cause I haven't a graphic tablet and I would like to hope that it's possible to do the same work with a mouse.

Thank you for inspiring me.

See you later

Rolos, I'd say using a mouse for digital art is a bit like using a wellington boot as a golf club. You *could* get around all 18 holes but it would take forever and wouldn't be a lot of fun. I'd say save up for a Wacom. You don't need one of the big expensive Intuos3s (I just got mine - A5, it is excellent mind ) you could start with the small graphire. Don't go with any other manufacturer is my advice, Wacom is the only real choice in this field, really.

I did this pic using a 1998 Penpartner A6 - ancient, limited resolution and quite jittery - I'm sure the A6 graphire3 will be better. I used free 3D software (wings & Blender) to block out the main elements in the pic, then printed out a very light copy of the scene. I then used a fine pen to work over it and add lots of details. Scanned that in. Using a low resolution (25%) version of the pic, I used a layer to work out a colour scheme with the tablet, then copied that layer and pasted it into the high res scan and increased its size by four times so it matched. Then I could get down to detailing it out.

An A6 tablet won't really let you work completely on the computer, but it's a great complement to pencil / paper sketches since it lets you colour very intuitively. After using a tablet you'll never believe you considered using a mouse. It's that simple, really.

I'm pleased that it inspired you! Get a tablet and it'll let you improve way more than the mouse. In the meantime, sketch, sketch, sketch away from the computer.
