Find your match

Postby qupada » Mon Feb 27, 2006 9:16 pm

Slow couple of weeks in the spam department.
As always, i'm going to apologise in advance, drawing with a tablet is something i haven't done in a long time.

Obviously, I didn't draw it. It's from a much older thread. But it seemed appropriate.

To tell you the truth, that's the most beautifully-rendered match I've seen in my life.

I keep hearing about drawing with tablets... I have photoshop for editing stuff, but I dont know about drawing with "tablets".. is there a good tutorial out there, or at least some quick explanation so I can figure it out? I mean I love Paint, but this might be useful information at some point...

First, you'll need to get a tablet. You can order them from a pha nmacy in Candia.

I will confess, at this point, that my decision to buy the tablet was as much an exercise in preventing RSI in my wrists as it was for drawing (i've been using it instead of a mouse).

In short, you have a large flat pad, and a funny looking pen. The normal setup is the area of the pad maps exactly to the area of the screen... so you tap in the bottom right, you click in the bottom right.

The nib of the pen is pressure sensitive (generally the surface of the pad is completely inert), as is the 'eraser' at the other end (although both ends can be assigned to do whatever you like), and has a rocker switch on the side that gives you two extra controls (default here is middle and right click).

So basically, according to how you set the thing up, how hard you press gets you one or more of (and this is by no means a complete list)
a) smaller/larger diameter brush
b) more/less opaque brush
c) more/less fuzzy outline brush

I highly recommend wacom tablets, purely because the pen needs neither wire or battery to run, is 'charged' inductively from the pad in the same way an electric toothbrush charges.

It's night, so this picture is rather crap, but this is the 9x12" wacom intuos3 with the standard pen (there are others, optional accessories):

And for the record, I don't have windows on this pc, they work just as well with Linux and free image editing software (The GIMP, Inkscape, Krita)

I was picturing a room of people sifting vigorously through their pockets after someone just farted. Or maybe it would work if it was just after they realized someone farted. I dunno... just an idea.

This is a little too straightforward for me.

Ah, well, I figured I'd make one. It's been a little while anyways.

In this picture it looks like the old guy has found his match in that little boy searching for something in his pockets.

Lambs' interpretation of Traubster's comic is the best thing in this thread.

It was supposed to look like the guy had just farted and the little boy was looking for a match, but I do like lamb's interpretation better.
