    Reply to [ Logo Critique ] Period or not at the end of the tagline?

    The period, to me, makes it more of an assertion rather than a suggestion. I know that's not what that's used for (technically speaking) but it makes it pack a little more punch.

    I agree, the Canoscan is a good scanner -- especially for the price. I've bought a couple of Epson Perfection V700 Photo Scanners for work, and would do so again if they're still made. They've been very...

  • 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.
