At first i would like to apologize if i'am posting my question at wrong section on the forum.
I am drawing for around 5 years now with traditional media and i have brought a graphic tablet (something cheap for a start - bamboo pen) because i would like to learn digital painting, however i have absolutely no idea about basics - where should i place my tablet on the table,should it be in front of me (like a peace of paper in tm) or a little to the right ? What's the most common way of holding a pen ? (i am asking because my hand hurt after around 10mins if i try my traditional drawing grip).
Overall using a tablet feels a bit weird for me, for example i can draw a pretty much straight line or a "perfect" circle freehand on a paper without focusing too much on it,but in photoshop i can't do anything like that.I know i may need more practice but i would love to hear some tips on switching from traditional to digital media.
