    Tablets.

    Hi. Apparently, I'm getting an Intuos III tablet for my birthday (January 15th). I've read alot of complaints about the board about how difficult it is to get used to tablets after working only with traditional mediums before to trying them out. I'm just curious as to just how steep the learning curve is in getting used to tablets both in general and, hopefully, this Intuos model specifically. I've seen some fantastic pieces on CA and being able to work with a tablet will let me finish more stuff and become more active about the boards. Anyway...

    SUMMARY: What's the learning curve when it comes to switching from traditional mediums to tablet-aided digital art?

    SUMMARY OF SUMMARY:Tablets tough? ME NO LIKE TOUGH ARGGGHHHHHH

    Took me about a week to get used to it - I'd say its the software that takes the most time.

    Well as far as traditional media I only have experience with pencil mainly, but I didn't have that much trouble switching over. I still prefer to draw by hand, but working with the tablet isn't terribly hard. The main learning curve comes from looking at one thing while your "drawing" on something else. Just practice with it and you'll pick it up soon enough.

    Oh, btw, one thing I noticed is that while you can adjust the size of your brush using the "[" & "]" keys, you can't do it with the "eraser" side of your pen. Just FYI.

    Anyway, hope that helps and congratulations!

    its provides endless hours of sketching. plus its always nice to know you dont need to buy papaer to sketch at home. but nothing replaces the buety of a nice pencil drawing

    I just got a Graphire4 for Christmas. I like it, though I can't really sketch anything freehand yet. I suggest you use the pen instead of your computer mouse once you get it so you get the hang of it faster.
