A kind of useless post but I like the idea of introducing oneself when new on a forum/community.
Been lurking here for quite some time and been enjoying the awesome work of the artists here, it's a true pleasure to be able to view so much art in the same place
Anyways, I'm a student from Sweden where I'm studying Media Technology (my focus will be PHP,MySQL and probably XML). I love art, especially fantasy&sci-fi illustrations. I'm quite fond of photography too.
Well, short and not to boring I hope
Now for the Q:
I've been drawing from time to time on paper with a basic pencil but feel quite restricted by the medium. I just don't have the money to buy all the coloring material, paper etc (and there's no store locally that have it). So I was thinking about a Graphire Classic XL, just to able to do coloring and such. I've read alot of negative responses to people starting digitally and they've been directed to the analogue world to learn the basics. Anyone who has actually started with a tablet and gotten good?
