View Full Version : Getting used to a tablet

07 July 2006, 12:53 PM
Hello all,

First of all, thank you for reading what I have to post. All help is appreciated.

I've got a day off work today, and a few days off next week so I decided to bring out my old wacom for some use. Im ready to devote several hours a day to art again (becoming bored with website design) and I'm in need of some advice.

I find using the tablet very difficult to find the form that I can naturally with a pencil and paper. The stylus tends to flow in a different way.

Can you help me by giving me some advice in regards to finding the right form?

Thanks again :)

Wow brilliant, thanks a lot!
