A portrait I drew of my mom. I love that she looks so peaceful in it.

It's a beautiful pic of your mom. Oh if I could sketch like that it's wonderful.

Wonderful, PAG. If you have an ipad, it has some very nice sketch options, and you just use your finger to draw.

I don't but I do have a drawing tablet for my desktop. Haven't quite gotten used to it yet, there's a bit of an adjustment in hand/eye coordination. I like it so far though.

What model do you have? I like them for digital media, but some can be really a p.i.t.a. to get use to.

I have the Bamboo. It doesn't have the touch capability, I have to use the pen with it, but I like the pressure sensitivity and speed detection. It works really well with The Gimp. I just have issues with hand eye coordination and spacial recognition so getting used to it and getting a feel for it is taking some time. It's a vision thing. Darned physiological deffects. I admit, I envy the people who can pick up a tablet for the first time and draw with it as well as, or better than, they can with traditional drawing utensils.
