Wrist Hazard

The are social networking sites, and then there are specialized social networking sites. One of those is Comicspace, where many a comics fan or creator are already a member of.

Another site that's piqued my interest of late is Sketchfu, a site where you get to exercise your artistic skills via a digital canvass. Unlike that interactive monstrosity that is Facebook, Sketchfu only requires you to draw, or browse through other's masterpieces and leave a comment or cheer.

The control panel for the canvass doesn't have a lot of bells and whistles. The brush sizes are very limited, and so's the color palette. And, if you're using a mouse, be prepared to develop carpal tunnel syndrome if you're thinking of creating something ambitious. (Gets me one step closer to procuring a tablet. Hmmm...)

The image shown is one of the few drawings I've done on Sketchfu. As I've said in other posts, I'm not too good with mixing colors, so I had to rely a lot on gut. Maybe you guys will have better luck.
