My tablet has been out since late january. And I have no working mouse, so I have to use the trackpad. Well, my pencils aren't broke and I have a good scanner. So, what do I do? Simply work with what I have. Basically, I line traditionally and color digitally. With possible shading.
Why am I saying this? Because I want to prove that you can do what you love, regardless of what obstacles stand in your way.
Even as many people as there are that do amazing things against all odds, there is never enough people saying to not give up.
