    Default Drawing tablet

    I've been using a Wacom Bamboo Pen and Touch a little bit, though currently my brother has it for working on his degree. I like it, but many times I just feel like using a mouse gets things done faster. With that said, I still want to be able to draw and whatnot, but it never quite works out well on either tablet or mouse the way I want, or could've done on paper... Maybe I'm just that bad of a drawer. Either way, I was thinking about maybe a better tablet might be the answer or just stick with pencil/pen and paper. If I did go for a better tablet, are there any recommendations? A larger drawing surface and the ability to see what I'm drawing on the tablet itself would be very helpful for me I believe.

    Personally I love my Bamboo, but I did get myself a pricey-er model [ http://www.buydig.com/shop/product.a...c&&cagpspn=pla ]

    It works great, has really nice pen pressure and is great for sketching/coloring. For nicer, cleaner lines I go back with the pen tool.

    If you want to stick with pen and paper then I suggest getting this- http://www.sharperimage.com/si/view/...FRRo7AodKBsALg

    or

    Hope it helps =3

    Thanks, this is very helpful. But I do have a couple of questions.


    Is their any real difference in the Bamboo Create and the Bamboo? I mean it's a great tablet, but still I'm unsure if my issue(s) is with the tablet itself or just using a tablet in general being that it was my first one and I'm still used to doing things on the mouse.


    Also I noticed with the Note Taker and Smartpen apps that they mainly run with Office and whatnot, do they also work with Photoshop/CS and/or like programs?

    This tablet is my third and favorite. The ones Ive had before were a little harder to use, so I guess it is a difference [all my tablets have been Wacom].

    As for the others, from my understanding they turn whatever you do into a pdf, jpeg or png file. Its just a matter then of opening them up in PS afterwards

    I think it worth remembering, to each his own. You dont NEED a tablet to be a good drawer, the tablet is just a medium and the mouse can be used. The one bit that a tablet is useful for is reading how much pressure you are trying to apply, rather than having to manually change opacity settings to accommodate a mouse.

    Before you invest in a new tablet, which can get expensive, fast. Just practice more and more, its a very fickle interface if you arent used to it. I would also recommend looking at your tablet settings. If, for instance, you have a tablet that's 4 by 3 inches (4:3) and a desktop screen that's say (19:8) or something, the tablet will try to force itself to be like that. So you might end up with funky controls, or dead spaces where the touch doesnt respond.

    Well that's my 2 cents, hope I didnt take this off topic for you. I have a Bambo Craft, and its served me well on projects. I got Rainbow Crash a tablet for Xmas, and she loves it, try harassing her for tips.

    Ah, thanks. I know that with how I typically draw it can be rough, due to such a heavy hand and that I typically have the side of my hand on the surface when drawing. So a smartpen may be a better way to go. Still once I get my tablet back, I can start practicing more and look at the settings too.
