Enjoying wacom tablet

I use a wacom Graphire to draw in the computer. Since I get it, never felt comfortable drawing with it. The feed back loop hand-wacom-screen-eye was not satisfactory. This evening something has changed.

First I put a piece of of paper between the wacom surface and the pencil. The paper feeling helped me heaps to increase productivity. Also I managed to change the body position in front of the screen and the wacom. Befre today I had the wacom just as much close to me as possible. It made me very difficult to coordinate the had movements and the eye feed back. I’ve just elonged my arms a bit and separated the wacom from my body. Not much but enough to make more “similar” the hand movement and the visual feedback.

The result was very intresting and I wanted to share with you.

    It is nothing to do with the pencil of the wacom, just with the drawing wacom tablet surface. I needed a rough surface and sticked a piece of paper on it.
