Nehh... I can't imagine that it would be all that great. LJ time: I know someone who bought one of those, and her art didn't improve one smidge, even after watching her hem and haw and blow hard about how fuckin' great she was that she was rich enough to buy one. I *heart* my 9x12 Intuos II long time.

Now a tablet PC, that would be on my "wanna-get" list. Along with a color laser printer (I priced one from Lexmark that does 11x17 prints) if I ever get a couple thousand bucks or so to blow. Print my own posters, yeah baby!

I love my Tablet too (We have the same model/size)

It just looked sooooooooooo unnnnn
I mean the natural pen on paper mimicing aspect is what I love about that most.

I didn't think it would make me better, I just thought that was a damn neat feature.

I thought you had the bigger, 12x12 tablet? I'm so silly...

Anyway...

Yep, that tablet looks neat-o but I don't see how it could be any better than the setup I have now. I doubt if drawing on an electronic tablet, set on an easel, could mimic the pen-on-paper feeling. For one, nothing current can mimic the physical friction a steel-nib pen has against paper (and that friction is what gives pen-and-ink drawings their flair), and second, drawing on a platform/easel thing set on a desk seems like an unnatural position for me. I'm a heavy handed artist and I lean my arms pretty hard on the desk when I draw. I get the feeling that a tablet like that would scoot around as I worked on it. I can't draw in my lap either. I hate hunching over stuff. The best I'd be able to do would be to set it on my tilted drafting table and draw with it, which might work if I could keep it from sliding.

I LOVE looking at the monitor and having my right hand flat on the desk to my side as I draw (and I put my feet up too) which results in very little fatigue and I can really whip out drawings FAST when I want to. I keep my left hand on the keyboard for shortcutting. I wouldn't trade my shitty, beat-up folding table desk for anything in the world; those tables are EXACTLY the right height and size for my equipment. I sure could use a more comfortable chair, though. I love leather all the way but this chair has no padding at all. Maybe I should go shopping today and spend the birthday cash my Mom sent. Hehe.

**loves on tablet** I tried to go back to pen-and-paper lately and I have some hard copy drawings sitting around right now, but I still get the job done faster and (I think) better using my tablet. One of these days I might trade up to an Intuos III but only after this one dies and can't be fixed or something. Guess I've found my "system" for doing things and I'd be reluctant to change it, even if I hit the lotto.

But if I hit the lotto, you had better believe I'm fixing this house up! XD

It is the 12x12 but the same model Intuos 2 (3 is out now... want that too.)

I couldn't draw in an easel either, that puppy would sit on my lap with my feet kicked up like I do now. I am soooooooooooooooooooooo lazy.

I have a gliding foot rest uner my desk :PPP

Office depot is your friend for Office Chairs, I love this mesh executive one I picked up. (Normally $250 on sale right now for $180) Very comfy, very ergonomic and supportive for me and my multitude bizarre sitting positions.

Ooooooo!
This is more my speed (and price range): a brush-tip stylus. Something like this might be more useful for inking, especially in my vector applications. I'd like to see what this instrument does to my linework.

SEXY STYLUS! XD

Re: Ooooooo!
OHHHH that is nice.

I never use the eraser or swtich on my stylus.
Infact I get IRRITATED with the switch cause I'll hit it while I'm working at it interupts my stroke.


that is defineately a purchase on the afforadble shopping list.

Re: Ooooooo!
Oi... I use both the eraser and switch constantly, which makes me a li'l paranoid about the brush tip stylus (but not so paranoid that I wouldn't want to try one out.)

With the fancy blue stylus, you can take the switch off and swap out the handgrip, you know that, right? Tried it once when it was annoying me, but I ended up putting it back on. And then I got pissed off and broke the damn thing on purpose anyway but that's ok because I got a shiny new BASIC (skinny) stylus that I like better anyway.

No I didn't know that. *Goes and digs out the spare bits... YAY!!! Does the switch and new nibs!!! I didn't even know it came with spares.

;;drools along with you;;

...I shouldn't see this...I shouldn't want this....I should be satisfied to drool over the smaller ones I can't even afford, which means there's no way in all of the 9 Circles of Hell that I'll be able to afford THIS one.....
