    Question "computer drawing boards"

    i have been lookin at everyones art work on the site and some are done in paintshop, i was wondering if they did it with their mouse or with a "computer drawing board". I was look on the net for "computer drawing boards" and they are god damn expensive!!! $700.00 for a 12 X 8 inch one!!!! Please fill me in on what the hell is goin on with these "computer drawing board" things because i wanna get one, if i need one to draw better on the computer.

    Thank You

    There are cheaper options than $700. There is a sort of ghetto brand which is very cheap (Aiptek brand instead of Wacom which is.. the standard I suppose you could say) and there is also ebay for used. Do some research, you might not need or want a 12 x 8 inch one. Call places like Comp USA and see if they have any you can try out in the store so you can get a feel for what size you'd like and how they work. For more info, try doing a search on this site for "tablets" or "wacom tablets". That's the lingo for the computer drawing board - "tablet". You should find alot more info about them, what they do, ect. ect. turned up in the search.
