Digital painting: sharing knowledge?
PostPosted: Sat 03 Sep, 2005  Reply with quote

I had some tries in digital painting with Photoshop, and I'm rather proud of my last one. I've some touching up to do, then I'll show you. smile

If my next tries are so satisfying, I'll plan to buy a pen tablet (I'm painting with my mouse... sadblauw ). Have some of you a pen tablet? Could you give me some advices? I think I'll buy a Wacom, but I hesitate between Graphire and Intuos.

Moreover, do you know where I can find a site where people exchange their knowledge about digital painting?

Oh I have intuos 2 and it ROCKS. It's more better since it's higher in resolution when you put pressure on it.. more true than graphire. I recommend 8x6.... it's awesome! I used to have 4x6 graphire and it sucked. LOL

www.cgtalk.com is very helpful.. professional place, but they're pretty helpful. :D

Thank you for your advices, DM7. smile
Linda Bergkvist has the same pen tablet than you have (Intuos A5). If it makes me do as pretty paintings as your ava and her work, I'll buy it immediatly!

A3 is huuuuge. A5 is huge enough for me LOL. To be honest. 6x8 is the best budget for professional intuos tablet... Not too small and you still can have fun! :D sometimes larger doesn't mean its better.. Way more movements and you might get tired from moving a lot. 6x8 is a reasonable size for me.. Not too large. But its up to you.... If you want a5 then so be it. smile
