Thank you all for visiting maniccomics.com and stay tuned for a special birthday strip that will be posted on November 22nd.
Now I’ve had the Wacom Bamboo tablet for little over two weeks and I have been experimenting with all kinds of settings.
My conclusion is that digital painting with the tablet is a lot of fun, but I have not been able to use the tablet as well in my comic.
I have been testing the tablet with Photoshop and Illustrator, and I must say that I haven’t gotten a hold on the brushes which is my own fault since I tend to have shaky hands, which makes it difficult to draw with regular brushes in Photoshop and Illustrator. There is a Calligraphic brush set in that automatically smoothes your line which is very nice except that it adapts too much. For example, if you draw a box the box almost turns into a circle.
There is probably some configuration I need to find but I haven’t had any luck finding it.
I enjoy drawing on the tablet and it will take a lot of practice to develop some skills.
All tips are greatly appreciated
