View Full Version : frustrations with wacom tablet

02-20-2004, 03:31 AM
No matter how I try, I can't seem to get a good "technique" with my tablet. Drawing just seems really awkward because of the lack of friction. I tried sticking a sheet of paper over it but I'd rather not do that to preserve my tips. I tried not moving my wrist but that's even more awkward

Any tips would be much appreciated.

Why would you want to preserve your tips? You can buy new ones you know. If I had a problem like that I'd sandpaper the damn thing.

true, but it's more a matter of convenience since i'm fairly sure I would have to order them from Wacom.

It will take some time, for some it will go quicker, others it will take longer. I've been using a Wacom for 3 months now and my traditional art skills haven't completely and entirely transferred over to the wacom. Of course as with anything, the more you use it the more comfortable and better it will be.

Along with friction, I also like to have a softer surface, so i take a few pages from a magazine or a mail-order catalog, and tape them to the tablet. Then take them off one by one as they get worn out.
