Graphics Tablet
« on: July 29, 2020, 03:44:35 PM »
With this Covid lockdown stretching my interest/MoJo for my layout to the limits, i thought I would dig out my graphics tablet and get back to my other hobby computer base art, My old tablet gave up the ghost, so I ordered a new one and the kind man from Amazon delivered it today.



I am busy getting used to it but I hope to get back to my other hobby computer based art soon.

Here are a few examples of my Art as you can see I tend towards animal portraits.

Some very nice work Di.  :thumbsup:. Can I ask - is it an easy skill to master?

It is a case of practise but it is not to difficult to pick up if you have a little artistic skill.

I am a bit rusty myself this is a quick sketch I have done using the new tablet it took about an hour.

Impressive Di. you obviously have more than

a little artistic skill.


Okay, next question, is there any specific programme I should be looking at? The reason I ask is that Louisa has been talking about getting a hobby. Tablet + programme = cheaper than n gauge.  :hmmm: ;)

Hi Di. Many thanks for that. I have just been looking at some of the reviews on Amazon and it seems to be well received - and at that price, I can't complain.  :thumbsup:
