on my desk


Or bed, actually. I Just got over a horrendous head cold and now feeling like tackling the piles of cut cloth on my desk.

On a different note, does anyone use a wacom tablet with a mac? I can't decide on a intuos 4 or a bamboo. I know the intuos 4 is supposed to be really great but at about 2x the cost, I am trying to convince myself that the bamboo would be sufficient for illustration work.

have a nice Friday!

  1. I have an intuos 2 4x5 and it serves me beautifully. I also have had an intuos 2 6x8 (gave to a friend) and also currently have an intuos 3 6x8 (gift from husband cos he didn't realize I had bought the intuos 2). Oops.

    Anyway, I've played with the graphire line (pre-bamboo model) and they are obviously less than the intuos, HOWEVER I know lots of artists who make beautiful work on the graphires (ex. http://www.ghostfire.net/).

    My intuos 2 performs as well as my intuos 3, and I ebayed the intuos 2 for a fraction of it's original price (100$). The intuos line is only worth it if you're a serious digital painter. For things like doodling or graphic design you'll be happy with a bamboo. Do you have an ipod Touch/iphone? There is an App called Brushes.app (http://brushesapp.com/) that will give you an idea of what digital painting is, and it's only 5$. If you're into that kind of painting then I'd say splurge on the intuos. If not, you won't need the pen pressures that is the main feature of an intuos.

    <3 Good luck!!! And stay well.

  4. thank you Niku, Elle! Jellie, thank you for your feedback and links on the tablet. I think I will probably go with the bamboo unless the software package is crappy, in which case the intuos 4 may be worth the extra $$. The brushes.app is so cool!
