Wacom Fun


At work, I have been testing out a Wacom tablet with Adobe Illustrator. Here is my first attempt at using "artistic" effects such as brushes and pencil tools. I don't find this any easier than actually doing a painting, except that there's no water involved. And you have to look at the computer screen instead of where your hand is. It's a little weird. This is the first time I've tried any kind of "art" on the computer. It could become a little addicting in its own way.

I don't know much about the wacom or tablet drawing ... but this is nicely done -- the colors are wonderful!

Hi! Your painting is very nice, simple and creative. I have one of those tablets that a friend brought me a couple o months ago. It seems easy to use it but it's not the same than drawing or painting with normal media. Anyway it's very exciting and addictive to be creating with it. Try using it with Art Rage 2, or Painter IX. hope to see more of this, best wishes, Martín.

This looks like a lot of fun! I like what you've done with it, too. Lin's right, the colors are wonderful.
