Good stuff here, and what a nice sized Wacom. That's droolish. Also looking to get the Intous 3, but my budget will decide on size. A smaller one I think.
In Painter, check out the pens -> Thick n Thin 3 and 5 pixels.
Think they would really suit your style. I just love their thick to thin ratio. Nice lines.
Now stop playing WoW and finish Vivi
Have a nice day.
