  7. As one who doesn’t have much faith in his artistic abilities, you’ve just given me more reasons to dust off my Bamboo tablet and get stuck into some illustration again :) Thanks Chris!

  9. I’m trying to figure out how to get a background that is similar to the brown background at the very top of this blog (behind the paper airplane)? Does anyone know what this effect is called or where I can find a similar background?

  10. Earlier this year I bought an Intuos 4 tablet, but haven’t really used it so much, due to lack of knowledge and advices how to get started. This post is an essential problem solver and excellent starting point, how it should really work for beginners. Thank you very much!

  11. Great examples! I love my pen tablet. Word to the wise, however, don’t leave them laying around. Someone thought mine was a pen with no ink and threw it away! Just the pens are like $35 ea. Live and learn!
