NEWS 272 - Little Help About Tablets

Journal Entry: Wed Jun 10, 2009, 1:59 PM
  • Mood: Artistic
  • Listening to: Rockman X5 - Opening: Mosquito-Milk - Monkey






While I still working on the contest results, I want to ask you some advices about digital tablets. Well I want to buy one but it's my first one. So I'm not sure which one I should buy. Some friends told me I should buy a Wacom. Well anyway I still need money for a good tablet.
If you want to help me anyway, with tips about tablets, brands and prices, or enything else, leave me a message.

Thank you so much
Bye bye!

................................................................................................

So you still didn't give me the name of all the characters on this pic:

Friends Day at the Beach by aha-mccoy

There are 20 characters over there. Some people give me the name of 19. And also I think you all should pay attention on this pic. Maybe there are more things hidden over there...

Good luck!

................................................................................................




I Still need people for my comic. If you want to help me, please send me a note.

................................................................................................

A very talented friend just opened commissions. He's a pretty awesome artist and the prices are pretty good. He needs some money so if you have time and some money, go commish him. I'm sure you are going to love the pic.

Tablets should be pretty small so you won't have to keep stretching your arms over to draw (well that and configuartion related things) . I suggest Wacom Bamboo since my older sister used it and its fairly inexpensive, pretty small, compatible with Macs and Windows and lovely to use.
Even though I don't use my sis' Wacom much because of its buttons on the tablet which I tend to be a klutz so I end up pressing them accidentaly while drawing DX So I pretty much stick to Adesso which has buttons but only responds when the tablet pen touches it. Only downside with Adesso is that the tablet pens' tips (I call them nibs) tend to wear away after many times of use and you only have 3 (one is in the pen and 2 are in a separate baggie). So pretty much the only way to get more pen nibs is to call the company to have them mail more to ya and the wait can be pretty grueling. DX

I recommend Wacom the most!:giggle: I have the Intuos 3 9x12, but they recently came out with the Intuos 4, which looks really cool. The Intuos ones are around $300 or $400 depending on what size you want.^^ But if you want one thats cheaper, try the Bamboo, or the Graphire wireless tablet (also made by Wacom) For more info, go here on their website!:giggle:[link]

Well I would go with the Bamboo Fun, Especially if it's your first time with one. VERY cheap compared to other Tablets, Small size is actually all you need.Remember Bamboo FUN, not Bamboo

Bamboo was designed first and is cheaper (a little cheaper) BUT Bamboo Fun is designed more for drawing, art stuff! =] (The Bamboo was made more for work stuff like writing -.-) Plus the Bamboo Fun is smaller and more convienient

eu endosso o q a :iconlillydmg: escreveu... A Wacom é top, cara, mas vale cada centavo.

Por experiência pró;pria, só posso falar das LCDs, quer são as melhorers. (desenhar em cima da tela não tem igual).

Uma idéia (interessante, por sinal) é a linha TX de Tablet PCs da HP, cujas telas são feitas pela Wacom (a linha penabled). São mais baratas que as telas avulsas (principalmente se vc tiver a chance de comprar na Sta. Efigênia).

Sim eu concordo com você, as Wacom são as melhores, a linha Cintiq é para o artista mais experto e incluindo há uma assim da hp como a que tem no "American Chopper" mas para o raposinho por ser a primeira a Bamboo Fun é ótima para ele se acostumar no mundo das tablets e depois ele poderia tentar com a linha Graphire ou Intuous. :3

concordo... não precisa partir diretamente para a opção "top da top"... é até legal ir se acostumando. ^^

Entonces, faz pouco tempo que uso tablet, mas as conheço via comentários alheios há um tempinho +- já...

Cm vc deve ter visto, a Wacom master domina o mercado... e com razão, eles realmente tem as melhores! Só que com isso vêm os preços altos né...

A minha foi baratérrima (8"X6" = 300 contos), mas é uma Trust! Pra mim tá mais do que excelente, mas tb né, eu só uso pra brincar praticamente =P!! No seu caso, já q vc se dedica mais a isso, tem experiência mais próxima com arte, talvez valha a pena investir numa Wacom msmo.

A Bamboo e a Bamboo Fun, na minha opinião, são meio "quebra-galho"... tem só uma ferramente a mais que a minha e mais níveis de sensibilidade de pressão e custa mais que o dobro O.O! Não vale a pena...
A Intuos 4 já é um chuchuzão *___*! Mas pelo preço que eu andei vendo nela, vale + economizar um pouco e comprar uma Cintiq logo de cara... ah, pra Cintiq eu simplesmente tiro o chapéu, ajoelho, me curvo e faço reverência XDD! O problema é que, apesar de o preço já ter caído, ela continua um pouco carinha: pelo que vi, andava variando de 5 a 9 mil pilas D=... pra fins profissas blz, pra mim simplesmente não rola!

D boa, dependendo do uso q vc quer fazer, talvez valha + a pena comprar um PC tablet, como aqueles da HP. Os notes pavillion novos deles dá p comprar até por menos d 3 mil reais! E o Touch Smart lindão (presente de niver do ano q vem??) tb caiu mto o preço, tão vendendo parcelado por ae a 5 mil reais...

E se vc puder dar uma esticadinha até a Sta. Ifigênia em sampa, obviamente vc pode conseguir preços melhores ^^

Espero ter podido ajudar c algo =P!

Wacoms are one of the most popular and the most well known tablet yet (like everyone hasn't said that already) some types include: Graphire, Intuos, Bamboo, and Bamboo fun (one's just a little more fancy then the other)

I own both a Graphire and a Bamboo Fun, and worked with a few others, and Wacom's the way to go. Now size apparently does matter pricewise, but in my opinion, don't get something that corrupts half of ur computer desk, or something that's too puny that u get a cramp. I went small simply because they're easier to handle and if I wanted to travel, I just slip it into my case, instead of dragging around this big thing in one arm and the case in the other.

I bought my Bamboo Fun for about 100 bucks, but the price gets worse the bigger you go.

Oh you should definitely get a Wacom Tablet :D
everybody I know has one even I do myself :3
you are gonna want to do lots of commissions because
to tell you the truth, they are very expensive.
Anyways Wacom Tablets are the best I hardly don't
use the mouse anymore, well sometimes I still use it
a little. ^^" I hope you get one!:glomp:

Aha, achei uma Bamboo por U$81,74 no DealExtreme. Andei dando uma olhada, e o site parece ser bem confiável, e o frete é grátis ^^ Acho que vou comprar pelo DX mesmo, só tenho que convencer o meu irmão a desistir do Xbox 360...

P.S.: Droga, vi que tá esgotada... Vou ter que esperar. Então que venha o Xbox!
