(my 1st post in this forum!) i have been using wacom tablets for about 5 years now. they are worth every cent! they are fast, accurate and very relyable (oops my english?). i've been using two A4 oversized tablets for some time, currently i'm using a cintiq 15 (display tablet), which is very comfortable but quite expensive. check www.wacom.com for the various models.
feel also free to check http://www.soio.ch/SeitenIllustratio...ationsm91.html.
i have done these three examples with the use of my Cintiq. really, i could not work without my wacom.
ps. besides, i don't work for wacom...
Phetchamphone The reason there aren't many replies to your post are taht this question is asked on an almost weekly basis, try searching the forum.
"which tablet" might be the best thing.
On a personnal note: Get a tablet and yes go Wacom, they should sponsor this forum, lol. Size depends on money, if you are just starting then a graphire will cover most things..
A mod should just make a Wacom sticky in the lounge. Put the most relevant information there. That should hopefully cut down on the "Should I buy a tablet/which one" kinda threads we get here all the time.
Graphire is much cheaper, but less (half i think) levels of pressure.
Now is you are a designer this may not mean much but if you are sure you want to do serious paintings then go intuous. The problem with intuous is the money. But once you have one they rarely break. I use an A4 intuous 2 and think its wonderful
You just have to work out what your priorities are. If you are serious about digital art and are committed to using the tablet then get an Intuos. Remember that to take full advantage of it you will need Photoshop (Elements at least) and preferably Corel Painter, which will cost more. If you are getting a tablet as an experiment then I suggest that you buy a Graphire. That extra $100 will buy a lot of traditional media, a really good set of oil paints or something. If you are a novice then an A5 ( 6x8 ) should be fine. If you can afford it the Intuos should be a good investment but I'm sure you will be satisfied with either tablet.
As a side note a Wacom sticky thread would be very useful.
