View Full Version : Input device for sketching and drawing

12-02-2009, 10:33 AM
I am good in drawing but now would like to use the computer to assist me to enhance my skill. Can someone suggest what is the best input device for doing sketches and which drawing software is more suitable. Currently I am using Paint and the silly mouse to do this. I am more into character drawing like in comic and also would like to dabble in graphic designing as well which I hope I can work from home and earn some extra bucks. I have scouted around to enrol in computer art short courses but so far could not find anything yet.

Google "Wacom Bamboo Fun" (without the " ")

Somewhere in this forum (search for it) I asked about the Wacom Bamboo. I did buy it for my daughter and she spends hours on it. Probably one of the most used birthday presents that I have given her.

The results are good.

I bought mine at 1-Utama - Pineapple Computers in the basement level. Cost is RM300-ish.

Its a tablet but not a tablet PC. The price should not be more than RM500 for a decent one.


Tablet PC are more expensive.

It's a pen-like stylus(pressure sensitive) that u can use to draw, paint or ....replace the mouse. U can get a small one or big one depending on your budget and usage. Well, big doen't mean good, I'm most comfortable with A5 size tablet.
Try to get a Wacom as it's chosen by most artists and best of all, it's battery-free and light.
I do have several and my students use them to create wonders though :) .
