View Full Version : finally broke down and got a tablet

I've been doing traditional painting for years and I am a gadget kind of person, so i decided to get a cheap tablet and try digital painting. At this point, I have no idea what I am doing :) but i need to start somewhere!

Nice work. What kind of tablet and which software?

It has a wonderful sense of light and shadow. I ditto Doug, I'd like to know more about your new tablet and what software you are using.

If this is what you do when you don't know what you're doing, I definitely look forward to seeing what happens when you get things figured out! The solidity and particularly the light diffusing through is quite nice...

You're off to a very good start!

I think Perisoft said it perfectly! what happens when you know what your doing? being in a similar boat, painting traditionally for years but also a gadget junky. The two met about 8 years ago and I've been having a blast ever since. The best of both worlds for me!
Really looking forward to another techno geek/painter.
Welcome to the wonderful world of digital!

thanks everyone!
sorry for a delayed response, school work is a plenty this summer :)

I picked up Intuos Pen small CTL-480 for $69.99 on amazon
the software I used was Painter but the tablet also came with Art rage which i will try eventually.

What a great start. Your traditional vocabulary is obviously informing your digital experiments, which is the best frame of mind to be in. I hope you keep exploring the digital domain. It can really help your traditional work when it comes to quickly and efficiently trying out new ideas for a painting, or testing different palette setups. Let's see more. :thumbsup:
