  • wacom intuos ?

    never worked with a tablet before, but am starting to see the benefits.
    am thinking of getting one and have read that the wacom intuos 3 is probably the best on the market.
    was wondering if, from anyone who has used these, the differences in the 4x6 and the 6x8. there is about a 100 dollar price difference and dont know if the extra tablet space is that beneficial. having never used on of these before i am wondering how a small drawing surface results in larger sized images, etc.

    would like to hear yalls comments and suggestions.
    thanks

    IMO size shouldn't matter if your using illy - you can scale your drawings to whatever you want. I have the smaller version but could never get used to it, so its packed away in a box somewhere. Its probably just me though, poor hand to tablet / eye to screen coordination I guess.

        me neither. But then again, I couldn't draw with the tablet. Maybe I just can't draw!

          To be honest, tablet size seems to be more a matter of personal preference. Some people prefer the smaller models, and find it harder to work with the larger ones. Others find the smaller ones too cramped, and prefer to work with a larger one. The only way to decide what you want is to try one and figure out what size seems good.

          Maybe go to a shop and see if they'll let you try a table there. Or, if you know someone who has a tablet, ask to try using their's.

            My optimum is the 6x8 intuos3. I am very happy with it indeed. There's something comfortable about having just the right amount of space for my hand to move in easily and not have to over stretch or lift up and replace my hand too much when drawing in all areas of the tablet.
            at best my spelling *and grammar* is crap and at worst it are be carp

              I definately prefer smaller. I like to move my arm as little as possible. If I want to do fine detail, I zoom in.
              It is more fun to talk with someone who doesn't use long, difficult words but rather short, easy words like "What about lunch?" Winnie the Pooh
