I had wanted a drawing tablet for a while, so it was awesome when I finally got one. A silver, medium-sized tablet (made by Wacom, I think.). I didn’t want too big or too small. Medium’s just right. It took a while to get used to, but now, it’s as easy as using a pencil. And I figured out whether or not the airbrush setting should be on. It really makes a difference. I panicked with it until I changed the setting and was able to actually change brush sizes. Relief.
Anyway, as I often do, before the tablet, I had such inefficient ways of doing things. I scanned things on, erased around the lines to get rid of all the smudges and eraser marks. One day after getting the tablet, I learned how to clean it up with a click or two of the mouse. So many hours needlessly wasted. One of my greatest fails as a human being.
But, all that doesn’t matter now that I have my precious tablet. I stupidly got a left hand desk, but I’ve gotten good at using the mouse with my left hand when I’m not using the tablet, then when I want to draw something, I put the tablet on my lap, grab the pen, and draw away. I win, wrong desk!
Anybody who does computer art would benefit greatly from a tablet. I sound like an advertisement here. “Buy Wacom tablets! You won’t regret it!” I should write a jingle for it. What rhymes with Wacom? Or tablet? Hey, you know what could be a word for a baby crab? Crablet. “Buy a tablet, my little crablet!” That’s just weird.
By the way, how do you say Wacom? Wah-cum. Wah-comb. I don’t know.
