Thanks for the positive feedback everyone, it encourages me to continue!
Glad that you liked episode 2, but just to let you know. I did my first episode with a mouse only because I wanted to see how well I can create something before putting any time and money into it.
It took me a while to finish but I did it, I was impressed so I decided to buy a Wacom Tablet. If you want to work on something, you should just go do it and see how much it impresses you. Then go show your brother your work to impress him or go buy yourself a tablet.
