Nice colours and texture, although I agree with sticmann; a bit of shading/value contrasts in the different forms may have helped punch it out a bit more. Interesting technique with the ruler on the tablet thing....can't you just draw straight lines perfectly by hand? =P

Generaly I have some problems with perfectly straight lines ;) They were required here so I used ruler, but when it comes to sketching or drawing 'natural straight lines' I draw them by hand. It's a rare case I need something geometrical.

Cool. I see the forms you have going on and it's a good take. It's pretty subtle with these cubist paintings, but you can still separate the foreground and background with the shading and colors you choose. I think it would benefit this one.

This is actually painting two on this background. Easy strokes went surprisingly well so I saved base separately. First painting over it didn't came out so I put it into depths of my archive ;) This is the second attempt at cubism.
Probably I should mention too that I used ruler to make straight lines (physical one)

A ruler on your tablet? I've done that once or twice. I had forgotten about that until just now. It was a bit awkward.

For me it's quite natural to paint straight lines that way. I wonder if cubists used rulers too? ;)

I guess the awkwardness came in with trying to line up the ruler on the tablet with where I wanted it to be on screen.

I think it's just a matter of exercising and getting used to it. I'm sure you remember that strange feeling when you tried to use tablet for the first time and everything was appearing not under your pen but on your screen. As ruler has not got any representation on the screen it might be a bit difficult to find its position on your digital canvas. Holding pen near the ruler's corners helps a lot, then one or two 'testing strokes' fixing ruler position and here we go :)

That sounds right. You use this often then?

Nope - because I usually don't need straight lines :) But if yes it might be very handy and fast approach. I think that fixing position of this ruler may be even faster than placing digital ruler (as some software has it). Of course not all apps have built in ruler, so it's sometimes the only way to get this kind of lines. Also important thing is to hold your pen 90 degrees to the tablet surface to avoid wavy lines.
