Photoshop 7.0, many hours, wacom tablet.

Here's a close-up

As any rabid fangirl can tell (heh), this is Robbie Williams in the Close Encounters recital at Velodrom, Berlin. This was his outfit for the first part of the recital (singing Ghosts). Magenta and all, I adore this outfit. I wish I could have it for me 8D.

Hi, cool stuff.
I just got a Wacom for Xmas -What do you like about it and do you have any tips for new users.  I'm totally comfy with PS, and I paint and draw -but any advice would be awesome.
Thanks
J

I use a Wacom Intous3 6x8 tablet, medium sizes work the best for me because I don't move my hand a lot when drawing (that increases muscle pain). Bamboo sounds like a good starter tablet, the only downsides are the pen tilt and the resolution, but unless you're working at very high resolutions I don't think you'd have much trouble about it Smiley They're very much comfortable than a mouse, I don't feel too comfortable surfing the net with them but if my wrist hurts too much I can do it.

Depending on the tablet and the software you use you can adjust the sensibility levels. I set it in mid-high sensibility so I can draw softer or harder lines just with different pressure. When you color you can also set the brush you're using to 40% transparency to blend the colors better to the point you don't even use the smudge tool. Smiley Ah, and use as many layers as you want XD I go up to 200 layers on a very large piece because I'd rather hide one to go back to where I was rather than loose data.

I got the Bamboo fun -it seemed like a good deal for a Wacom.  I'm not crazy about the pen tilt (I'm guessing that's the sensitivity of the pen at an angle?) -I haven't tested the resolution yet, I hope it's not horrible.  But other than that it's pretty nice, the size is comfy for the price, and it functions very well with the newest version of PS.
