Wacom Bamboo tablet. It's like $50 - $70.
See my icon? I made it by using Bamboo.

Hmmm I would do like the previous poster suggested and go for a cheap model Wacom tablet. I know people who are actually teachers at Full Sail and when they are just at home messing around wanting to do some tablet drawing that is what they use.

That said this is also sort of what we call a personal thread, meaning a thread where you are asking for advice or some other personal type thing. So these types of threads are against the forum rules and I have to lock it up... Sorry. I do thank you for using the CR forums though and best of luck finding the perfect tablet for you!

The bamboo is perfectly good starter tablet wit enough sensitivity to paint. A lot depends on your drawing ability. I have an old intuos which is 9", it's a bit cumbersome since I use it with illustrator and photoshop. It's cumbersome only because of the size and the fact tat I use a lot of keyboard shortcuts.

If you're not sure, and you want to give one a try....

Go to Monoprice and pick one up.

My roommate (an illustrator who uses Wacom tablets) purchased this guy:

And said that for 50$ it's pretty much just as good as a Wacom.

I started out with a different cheapie I found on Amazon before I got my Intuos.

But yeah! Monoprice is the way to go! Check em out!


Also... locking and closing as this is a personal thread! :o

Good luck!
