i was watching one of Kurt's tutorials the other day and he was using a tablet, and you see on 'the making of <movie/game>' such as God of War that the visual artists are using tablets too
does anyone here get much use out of their tablet? or what sort of tablet would you like?
i would love to have one of those tablets that are lcd screens too, cuz then its easier to see what you're doing with the pen. I've used a few tablet notebooks (just briefly) and it was great fun
the only thing with the notebooks (unless i'm totally wrong which i wouldn't be too surprised since i haven't done any research on this yet) is that you can't just connect it to a PC and use it as a second monitor
and when i went to wacom to find out what tablets are like that, it shows me the cintiq model, which costs more than my laptop and second monitor put together... :attn: (expensive stuff is COOL)
does anyone on these forums have a cool tablet like the cintiq?
Yep me to although I got myself a wacom Intuos 3 a5 for 180 quid and is possible the best 180 quid I have ever spent. Makes all sculpting software come into a world of its own and its great for photoshop.
I have a Adesso CyberTablet 6400. I use it for Photoshop and Vue and I got it on Ebay for about $40 USD. I actually bought 2, one for work and one for home.
They are like my trusty sword and shield.
Graphic Tablets are a most have for any CG artist.
