Sketching digitally, Wacom Tablet Terrier!
Out of the box…
I have never tried to draw or sketch or paint “digitally” until this week. I have used Illustrator for many reasons in the past, but never to free-hand anything. Much has changed in the art world! I have been longing for quite some time to draw with a digital pen and sketch or paint on a digital art board. If you wait long enough, the price becomes reasonable!
One of the things I spent my Christmas money on was a Wacom Intuos Pro Pen & Touch.
I waited long enough for the technology to be affordable for me, on my doorstep for around $350.00.
You can spend as little as $49.00 to get started with a Wacom product or you can break your bank and buy the best and brightest at around $3000.00. I feel I struck a bargain!
I have no experience with tablets, and minimal experience with Illustrator. After watching a few gracious artists who were posting tutorials on YouTube, I was able to create something.
- I spent a day playing and testing and setting preferences; would take less if you have some experience / knowledge of Illustrator (or other favorite software for drawing).
- Minimal cursing, value is excellent.
- I would recommend this company and product to anyone who has longed to try.
- Will not give up real paint and brush on canvas. There is just nothing like it.
I think this pup is a strong mix of “Cat-Dog”, but I love his eyes- not bad for straight out of the box.
A fun start!
