I was just wondering...

Thyme, do you draw your sketches with the mouse or with the pencil of a tablet pc?

thyme said...

On the computer I draw with a Wacom tablet, A4+. I like it very much.

Thanks for the information about the brand of the tablet.
As regards your beautiful sketch, speed + gravity: it's important to keep one's balance, isn't it?

I bought 3 golf clubs for the superkid, to motivate him to go out and play with me. But I have to carry the clubs, I go to the golfcourse on my rollerskates (he rides his tricycle) and I was wondering which way up to carry the clubs. I definitely think with the heavy heads low is better for keeping ones balance.

I agree, with the heavy heads low is definitely better for keeping one's balance.
I've realized just now that I have a Wacom tablet too. But when I'am drawing the pen is not flowing enough: maybe because I've not installed the driver software.

Yes it is important to install the driver software. Also this tablet is quite large, I used to have a smaller one before and to achieve the best effect I zoomed in on my drawing while working because then when I zoomed out to normal scale my errors were smaller. This tablet also has a has a high pressure-sensitivity. When i apply harder it makes thicker lines. I got it purely as a hobby and I don't practise enough, but it is almost as nice as drawing with pen on paper.

This is the point: with my tablet is not as nice as drawing with pen on paper; it's a bit heavy because it's hard to measure out the lines.
I'll take the cd from the package and install the driver software as soon as possible.
