This guy just has bad ass written all over. are you using him for any projects? if not, I would love to feature him in a table top Skirmish game I'm designing, proper compensation would be given, the gaming community would have the pleasure of experiencing this character, you will get full credibility as the artist. As a huge dragon age II fan and Mage hawk being my favorite character design ever, I really appreciate the sword/staff. Please if you would be interested. again, $$$, full credit, and the opportunity to further advertise your work, there really is no down side.
I actually use an older tablet laptop (not as many sensors as a wacom, but to be honest, I've used both and found no noticeable difference. I bought mine for like around 500 and it's worked awesome.... I love it and would never return to the mouse. Using a wacom tablet has a small learning curve, but well worth it in the end!)
