my Wacom tablet


Just before Christmas I bought myself a Wacom intuos4 tablet. I'm working a lot with photos and images in photoshop and I had started to get some pain in my right shoulder - so I thought this could be a wise investment. Now when I have used it a bit I must say it's just GREAT (no, I'm not sponsored by Wacom!).

The tablet is pressure sensitive; which for example means that I can get thinner or thicker lines just my changing the pressure when drawing. And then there is this great zoom in-zoom out function and some other good stuff. And I can put the tablet on my lap and tilt it (ok - that's not hightech ... but really comfortable)

Jeg finder også min wacom helt uundværlig. Din er dog ganske hi·tech - min er af lidt ældre dato :)
Dejligt at se du er kommet godt ind i det nye år :-)

vad kul att du köpt en wacom. har du provat att rita med den eller använder du den bara för efterarbete?
jag tycker det är häftigt att den är så känslig för hur man trycker men den är hopplöst svår att dra raka linjer med. men man vänjer sig säger min syster som bara ritar med brädan!

i've been intrigued by these for a long time and have played with others' wacom tablets but don't know how i'd feel about letting go of that pen-to-paper touch!

J'en ai acheté une pour la même raison que toi, mais je ne m'habitue pas. La mieen est plus petite et je sens que mes mouvements sont restreints. Tu me donnes envie de lui donner une autre chance malgré tout.

I bought one Wacom tablet over a year ago, just to find out that I was useless at it. I'm always thinking of spending some time with it to get used to the feel, but haven't managed yet. However, my kids draw very freely and comfotably with the tablet, to my dismay.
I can't wait to see whta it comes out of yours :)

Gott. Wacom har varit min vapendragare i fem års tid nu, använder bara pennan till allt. Funkar finfint, mindre risk för musarm också, tror jag.
