Well, I did it. I picked up a Wacom Graphire 4x5 tablet, pen and mouse set.
Way cool!
I'm very impressed with the sensitivity and accuracy of the unit and set-up was a snap (I got the USB model). Took a few minutes to get used to it but, after that, amazing! This was a great investment.

Picked mine up from Pcstop.com for $74.22. UPS shipping was $11 and I got it, from Washington to Michigan, in only two days!

Hope to post some work here shortly using the thing.

Cheers!

Nick,

I have the Wacom Intuos tablet. I guess they changed the name recently. I've been happy with its performance over the last 2 years. I didn't get used to its super smooth surface for drawing, so I taped a sheet of drawing paper over the tablet and it feels much more natural.

What a great idea! I'll have to try it.

Been having a lot of fun getting used to the feel and the possibilities. The Painter program, while not as sophisticated as my other graphics programs, gives a very "organic" feel to digital painting. It enables you to, again, have that free-flowing, experimental approach to creating.

I plan on using it a lot this weekend and should have something to post soon.

Nick,
So did anything come of your experimentation? I got your email and I've been hoping to see the fruits of your tabletty labors! http://www.wetcanvas.com/ubb/biggrin.gif
