Re: Drawing Tablet
One for Creusebear really. I wonder how you progressed with the graphics tablet/programmes ?
What has prompted me to ask this is the TV programme currently running about Art Nouveau and the latest episode featuring Aubrey Beardsley creations. This has prompted me to have a play with the Expression 3 vector art programme I mentioned in an earlier post. I find that even using my finger/touchpad I can get the strokes easily for similar drawing to Beardsley's.
I then went one step further and investigated whether the Creaturehouse Expression 3 (free) software was still available for download and it seems that it is.
If you are interested go here
Once on the page scroll down to the Download section and I have managed to download it from the Windows link. You do have to put your Windows Live ID in before Microsoft allow the download, but that's easy.
From what I remember, Microsoft had to allow this free usage as part of the agreement when buying out Creaturehouse.
I'm going to dig out my tablet this weekend and have a play using that (Might have to go to Ramsbottom (Lancashire) Chocolate Festival though, which could delay things).
Just thought you might be interested.
Edit 1: Just added a sketch I did using only the touchpad/finger on my laptop and Expression 3.
Edit 2: There are also links to free versions for Macs plus 2nd edited image with colour
