I'm going to get one soon, it's really cheap too, like $4 with free shipping or some crap like that. WANT.
Man, I've been loading up on a bunch of frivolous stuff. And right when my husband wants to save money to get his business up and running lol. I think after this, though, I'll be all cool-item-bought-out for a bit, and I'll calm down on the spending. Maybe.
Anyways, I justify it because it's been my birthday week. So there.
I'm having a hard time with the layout of the pictures in this stupid blog sometimes. Whatever. Anyways, I've really been wanting to get a drawing tablet for myself, for like, a really long time. Problem is, we're always buying stupid crap so I never have the money for one.
I'm also split between tablets.
I would love to get the new Wacom-Intuos5-Touch-Tablet (shown below)
So probably my most viable option is
to go with the Wacom-Bamboo-Connect-Tablet (below)
Which I can find for like, $69-ish. Lol...69....
I lose a lot with the price difference, however. The benefit to the Bamboo
is that it's cheap, and it gets the job done. I'm a beginner, for sure, and I
probably won't use all the fancy features of the Intuos 5 just yet, but I
want to learn how to use all those fancy features.
The Bamboo does have pressure sensitivity, but not with the eraser,
and I don't believe you can use different nubs with the pen.
It also doesn't have any tilt sensitivity, which I still probably
don't have to worry about that feature yet.
But I mean, if I'm spending $70-ish dollars on a slightly sub par
tablet, why not just squirrel away that money and try to save up for the Intuos 5?
Well, I'm impatient, that's why.
I may try to justify buying one to my husband by telling him it's for his business, which is mostly true. I do plan on doing concept art for him, and hopefully I can get decent at coloring.
He gave our tablet to the artist we have hired, which was a bummer for me, good for our artist. So maybe we could buy a good one, give it to him and I could at least get the Wacom Intuos 3 back. So many options. All of which require money. ARRRRG
