Sometimes I doodle stuff to relax and pass the time now that I’m stuck at home.
I’m not a graphic designer and unfortunately I don’t have much of a budget for hardware, so I thought to make this post to see if I can get any advice on how to get my next drawing to my PC.
So far, I’ve scanned what I have done, but if the paper is not perfectly white, or is crumpled or smudged it will show on my file. Plus, it takes time.
I’d like to find a way to draw “digitally” instead of drawing in a physical medium and then digitize it. That way I can correct any mistakes. Hope it makes sense.
I’ve looked into graphic tablets but found that they either just perform the function of a mouse and thus must be tethered either with a cable or with Bluetooth to a computer, or the ones that are “standalone” are very expensive for me. Plus, I’m weary of purchasing one and then not liking the feeling.
I’ve also looked into so called smartpens, but they need to be used with their own special media and their own software.
Having read all that, can anyone make a recomendation?
If it matters, I don’t need the device to be pressure sensitive, and although I would love for the doodles to be able to be exported in vectors, it is not a deal breaker. Raster is fine as long as its a common file format.
Best regards to all and thank you for reading.
