Let's DRAW...on the screen?




Hi all! Woow, it's been awhile since my last post. I had a lot of things going on and work taking up a lot of it. ;) I HAVE been working on this new series of paintings, but haven't finished just yet. I'm about half way through the last painting! I hope to finish it tonight. I will post them as soon as I'm done! In the meantime, I have treated myself to this lovely piece of electronics. I bought a HP tc4200 12" Tablet PC! It is a touchscreen and a laptop in one! It's pretty light, about 4 pounds! I LOVE IT! I have Sketchbook Pro and these are my first sketches I did in it. I love how sensitive the screen is. It actually feels like I'm drawing with a marker or pen or brush, or whatever... I hope to draw my preliminary sketches here for my paintings. Not to say I'm gonna give up my crayon box, but you know what I mean. heheee.... Anyways, I can't wait to post my paintings, so I'm off to finish them! Cheers!

Those are great characters, they made me feel warm and fuzzy... I draw on the screen all the time, and find it's a great way not to loose touch with the reality of pen and paper since it really is a close simulation. Love the stuff, keep it coming :)!

AAAAAAAHHHHHH! I love what you did on the tablet. SOooooo cute! your work is evolving and I think this tablet is going to allow you to develop your style a lot more since you can have as many trials and errors as you please. It's Awesome! Keep it up!

Hey Dee - I too am a proud owner of a tablet PC. It's totally streamlined the way I work. All my little bits of paper with doodles have magically diz-apper'd into my hard drive (for easy printing later).

Also check out Art Rage if you haven't yet. It's another natural media program built for the tablet PC. And hey, it's free (higher end one is cheap though):

I've been contemplating getting a Centiq. How do you like your tablet pc?

I love it! I have no excuse now to draw every night! haha... I also love, because it's sooo portable. I can sketch everywhere and don't have to carry all my markers and paint, etc.

I have to get me one of those! Really cool designs you did on it too.
