I recently got myself a digital art tablet thing ("Genius 6"x 8", $48.00 from Amazon.com) and this is my first drawing/painting I've done so far. I used "The Gimp" open-source (i.e: FREE!) GNU Image Manipulation Program, which is nice, but the tablet comes with trial versions of Adobe and Corell products that seem REALLY cool! I have yet to create anything with those yet, but here's the one I did with Gimp.
After I had finished the initial picture, I thought it looked like the cover of a 1960's pulp porn paperback book, so I set out to make it REALLY look like one. I was rather pleased with the result.
