    What is digital tracking and can tablet pen tip sensitivity be calibrated?

    Tracking is how well the tablet senses your movement on the surface..
    and yes.. you can adjust sensitivity ( with the wacoms, atleats.. not too sure about your silly manhattan thingies )

    Hehehe...

    Yah, you can set it and I havn't found anything wrong with it yet. Feels like a pen and you kinda forget about what's in your hands and end up in drawing land on the screen. Doesn't make up for a lack of abillity though.

    This is a very good thread,
    NRX, I am sure everyone is different, I have a smaller Intuos 3 and the grip wacom pen//with holder. I like the smaller tab so I can paint everywhere and do. I think the larger pad would hinder me, right now my lap top, tab and pen fit in one bag. You may want to think about where you want to go with it?

    I'm curious, I know it's better for convenience's sake to get a tablet and photoshop, etc, but my family has... very limited means. Are artists allowed to update hand drawn work by scanner, if the scanner isn't a piece of crud?

    I'm not sure I understand what you mean. Update how?
    Are you asking if you can scan an image and bring it into a painting program? Or are you asking about altering the image from the scanning software?

    Sorry, not sure if I made that clear. Just uploading the picture on the computer and putting it in our sketchbook. The only paint program I have is the standard paint that comes with most computers (Microsoft paint I think it's called?). I could probably crop the image using the school's scanner but that's about it.

    Hi everyone, I'm new here and I'm completely new to 'digital art'. I've spent all my time doing it the 'pencil & paper' method (will always be my favourite). But its becoming increasing clear that you pretty much need to be able to produce digital art. (concept stuff seen here, and then 3D rendering etc).

    I'm asking would one of the 'drawing pads' on the first page & something like Adobe Illustrator be a good starting point? What would be the best software to use? (preferably one which would allow you to quickly adapt to similar programs)

    Any & all help would be very much appreciated!


    EDIT: I'm, at first, looking to produce concept art style pieces pretty much. (e.g. stuff we see for films & video-games).

    If you're looking to do that type of work, I'd say it would be best to become comfortable with photoshop. By all means, have fun with other programs, too, maybe you'll respond better to them. But conceptwork requires more quick changes to work, which I think photoshop can do quite a easier.

    This site also has a new WACOM subforum you should check out. Lots of good questions being answered there already. Welcome to CA

    I'm surprised noone has mentioned the Gnu Image Manipulation Program (GIMP) as a good, free alternative to Photoshop, it has most of the same features as PS, and it's free

    http://www.gimp.org/

    (and the setup is fairly similar to PS I think, also it works great with tablets, you can set your pressure to affect different things like line thickness, transparency, etc.)

    Thansk for this, I'd not seen it.

    I think Intuos is probably the one for me, and I'm thinking of the medium, do you think that would be a big enough size for some beginner concept art?

    Also, I know there are considerably cheaper prices from Ebay or Amazon, is it the kind of thing that would be ok getting from these sites, or would it be important to get it from an official provider?

    Thanks again,

    Touch

    I'm working with a tablet for 2 years now, but never really understood the details. Now the old one broke down, this tread helped me order a proper replacement.

    Thanks a lot!

    If you're using zbrush or mudbox and you're having trouble painting smoothly (you get these annoying "z-pops" everywhere) try going to your tablet properties and double click the intuos 3 icon. switch to data recognition mode.
    (i think this might mess up the wacom mouse, but who uses that anyways? If you really need it just switch back.)

    Its supposed to help for other programs as well, like photoshop and painter, but i cant say i noticed much of a difference in photoshop. I dont have painter so i havent checked there.


    //edit: interceptor, my first tablet was a wacom volito, i dont see that in your list. You might wanna add that, its a very basic, small and crude, but ok tablet for beginners, and have a very nice price tag.
    Omg, I was just randomly trying this just to see what happens, and it totally helped to get the lag off in Painter. I can set it to enhanced ghost brushing now without any hiccups. Even with music going on in the background and everything. o_o Thanks!

    I wonder what the difference is. Just better data recognition? It didn't harm my mouse at all by the way.

    So...I had a graphire4 for a few years. My wire was turning green in some spots and just went out on me... The pressure sensitivity was 512 and I was thinking about getting a bamboo pen and touch. It is the most reasonable price at the moment, but I was hoping to get some info on whats in the market.

    I always try to make something cool to go here...

    Might want to add the Bamboo Touch to the list. I got one recently and while small (as the Bamboo is) it's nice. The touch function makes it behave like an oversized touchpad with motions and the touch functionality toggles with a default button click.

    i use a tooya pro pad from penpower. $100.00 and it has a 10 inch active area. I havent used it too long but it seems to be working great for the price and is very accurate. It doesnt have all the bells and whistles like the higher end pads but is a decent choice for someone wanting to dip their toes in the water without spending a fortune. I bought mine from tigerdirect.com good luck.

    No, it's made so that you can just turn it upside down.
