Touch me here, touch me there

 

Getting into more nitty gritty things now and doing some touch ups in Photoshop, I found it again pretty intuitive to use.

 

Going through a few old photos, I touched up blemishes and bad camera work like I was using some kind of magic marker to correct everything.

 

Here is an example of my crappy drawing skills; a poor imitation of the TT logo and showing off the 1024 pressure levels available to the tip of the pen.

I think it's safe to say I am by no means a graphics student, but I did find using a pen to edit things and create drawings very intuitive. It must be all that schooling and learning to read and write on paper!

 

Last test today; we take a hand drawn cartoon and place it underneath the transparent cover, then trace it using the pen.

 

While this did not come out entirely as expected, I have to confess that it's a pretty good likeness. But obviously there is greater favour to those who can draw lines without having to sketch all over the place.

 

Overall, I say if you are looking for a medium sized tablet that won't break the bank and just works simply with Windows, you should definitely look at picking up an XP-Pen Tablet.

 

It's fun and funky to use and particularly useful if you are a budding digital artist.
