    Kinda doubt it on the first question, on the second one there are the 3d-palace.com's concept art videos ...

When you compare that to the amount of work that the animators and producers put into it, I’m embarrassed to get all the attention and praise for it." - JOHN LITHGOW

    ok just a quick wondering... I have been looking into 2d art since I got a wacom board a couple of weeks ago, I thought I would be able to get into drawing more if I could do it digitaly (not to mention make things easier for 3d) anyways, I have been looking at a lot of concept art and stuff people have done in corel painter and that sort of thing, how much of the time are people using drawing tablets? everything looks so perfect! whenever I have tried to draw on one it looks like a 3rd grade scribble
    after a bit of messing around with it I think it has to do with the resistance difference (hard to describe, but it moves so much smoother then with pen and paper) is there a good way to get used to this, becuase after working with the conventional tools over the years it seems like I Loose everything I have learned when I use the tablet, does this make sence? so yeah, how many people actualy use tablet compared to mouse or doing it by hand and scanning it to touch it up?

    Really depends... i mean it's really not that hard getting used to using a tablet on a smooth surface. On some tablets you can even stick a peice of paper on top and it still works.. heard that works out for some people.

    The number of people doing stuff by hand, and scanning are mostly people who are drawing pencils ect, and just color digitally. Doublt many people are using only mouse.. extremely hard to use mouse for this sort of work.

    When working digitally try to remember that you have 1 extremely important feature you dont have in real life. Undo. Use the undo if your stroke isnt correct ect. Paint on layers to make it easy to correct mistakes... and mainly... keep trying.

    Also i find that doing lineart on the tablet isnt as easy as using normal pencil/paper, but it's sure easier to make iimages in the whole than using pencils

    And finally i know for a fact that some of the pros, like Ryan Church and Feng Zhu use the tablet all the way... or at least can do it... Feng propably does alot of purely analog sometimes
