    I'd still say "no." But, depending on how "significantly different" it is from the original, you may not be in violation of the agreement. It would be a judgement call, with the operative...

    What if it's an original work of skill, labour and judgement and significantly different from the original?...

    17" is large format, not wide format.

    What are you going to be doing with the prints?

  • Wacom Art

    I am starting this thread as a venue for displaying Wacom artwork. Please only display work completed on your Wacom, or other tablets.

    Reason:

    I spent weeks looking for the right Wacom. I looked everywhere and just didnt feel satisfied. I really wanted to read what others had to say about thier Wacoms.... the sizes, the functions, and so on....... I also wanted to see a variety of artwork done using tablets.

    I would like this to be a thread that others can use to view digital work completed via Wacom (or other) tablets, and a resource for those interested in getting a Wacom of thier own.


    Thanks, and please enjoy.

            I bought a wacom graphire 3 just to play around with - I use it more for artwork than design work...but every now and then I find the need for it.

            Definitely what brenton said - buy a smaller higher quality one...you don't need them to be that large (as a matter of personal taste really...try one out first) so you should spend the extra money on the intuos 4x6 or 6x8.

            You can do a lot of interesting things with Corel Painter and a Wacom, but PS and Illy have their merit for it too.

            This is one of my earliest wacom pieces - done from a reference photograph of a subway.

              I'm intrigued by the Wacom and am considering getting one. I'd be using it more as a tool to assist in my PhotoShop editting techniques though.

              I can't draw for nothing, seriously it's awful. My forté is in adjusting something that already exists. Will the Wacom help me or will it be more of a gimmick that I use for a few weeks and will be gathering dust in a couple of months time?

                The outline of my goat avatar was done in Illustrator for me.
                I modified it, added the background and crossbones, and did all the shading with the Wacom Intuos 3.

                  For the most part I agree. However, I went with the Intuos 3 9x12, and so far I love it. But I have the desk space, and dual monitors. Wacom of course suggested an even larger one... but I really like this one. I debated and debated, and contacted a couple of digital illustrators via email, and they also promoted the near 1 to 1 ratio I would get from the 9x12. So right now I have the tablet set to work on my left screen.

                  Pretty sweet.

                  Oh, to anyone with a Wacom, who isnt using it...... Start using it!!! Or give it to a friend at the GDF who would get some use out of it.

                    This is a mix for me... drew on paper and coloured scanned image in painter. Hope that counts... used my ol' school Graphite 2... I'd love to go and nab a Intuos one day... when I get the cash the nabbing will happen.

                      Using a 6x8 Intuos 3, fits me just right (I always used to doodle on computer paper, so I guess that's where the familiarity comes from I think).
                      Start of a web banner that turned out not to be the wanted direction (skull and wings are from photos).


                      I really enjoy trying to make digital "paintings", I'm still learning though, but someday...

                      I had a teacher back in college that made everybody sick at how good he as with a tablet... He would start off with nothing and even in just a half an hour he put as all to shame... he does great work... he's worked on a lot of big name illustrations.
