The Intuos3 Art Marker will use the new attribute 'rotation' which will be available in the brush menue of Photoshop CS2. The main advantage over the 'tilt' feature will be, that you do not have to tilt the pen in order to having its rotation recognized by the tablet. That should grant better control over flat brush tips.
"The new rotation sensing technology of the Intuos3 Art Marker will be supported by Adobe Photoshop CS2 and Adobe Illustrator CS2. Matthew Richmond, founding partner and creative director, The Chopping Block, an award-winning graphic design studio in New York, comments: “The Wacom Intuos3 Art Marker and Adobe Illustrator CS2 completely change the landscape of digital drawing. The results are remarkable - the control over rotation, stroke and pressure approaches the response of pen and brush with paper. It just feels right.”
Additionally Wacom has been working with Corel, who is developing a set of customised brushes for Painter IX that will support the new Art Marker. These will be available to download from the Corel and Wacom website shortly after the pen is launched. “Never has technology so faithfully captured the traditional art experience,” said Chris Boba, product manager for Corel Painter IX. “The combination of Wacom’s new Intuos3 Art Marker with the new lifelike brushes in Painter IX enables artists to transcend the digital divide and explore a brave new world of creative freedom.”
that rotation thing is what i ALWAYS missed. now they should work on some tech to realistically modulate the shape of the marks you make according to the tilt of the stylus. i want to be able to use any edge of a brush instead of the whole predefined shape.
did that explanation make sense?
now thats something really nice
doing the pen tilt requires some
mind multitasking abilities :-P
well i guess with time becomes intuitive
i wonder if also the preview of the brush
angle will be shown on screen too
if you rotate on the tablet the brush area rotates in real time too??
i have old PS dunno if thats available in newer version
thanks for sharing jfrancis

That looks pretty cool. I think I'll stick to using markers on paper though... there's something a little more tactile about them. A marker on a Wacom would feel too smooth...
Dan.v.d: Not quite sure what you mean there - the Intuos series all have Tilt features which change the shape of the brush based on the angle of the Wacom pen (if you set it up right in Photoshop/Painter).
I have to say, there is a real charm to the possibility of markers that never dry out and with unlimited color choices.That looks pretty cool. I think I'll stick to using markers on paper though...

That was the missing feature!
This could enhance digital media so much, because when painting with oils, the different angles are making painting so intuitive and produce such a nice texture.
Damn... now I have to put money aside for an intuos...
i hope this illustrates what i mean with beeing able to use edges of a brush dependeing on tilt and rotation. i think that would be the next big breakthrough in digital painting. with a big real brush you can make small marks as well as you can make razor sharp lines with a square peice of chalk.
and thats pretty cool i think
that looks interesting. but they go way beyond what i was basically talkin about.
The brush dynamics on that brush in the video would be awesome if the technology was implemented into the sensitivity and brush work that you get in painter/photoshop.
I know it'd make things a whole lot easier for me to make the transition from traditional medium to digital.
There is nothing wrong with using a photo to help you see things.
No one complains about life drawing,
so take a photo.
its easy, and will improve your piece greatly."
