That's extremely small JVM. I suggest going for a big WACOM. They're the best out there. Also, while its much more expensive, the size of it makes a big difference, at least to me.

From what I've heard, you don't need much bigger than the 6x8, or at least not unless you're really doing professional stuff. I just want something that's better than a mouse, for tooling edges and other delicate work a mouse is bound to be too unstable for. I've been told that 6x8 is plenty big enough for that and drawing etc, is that not your experience? The others are a lot more expensive sad.gif

[edit] For example look at my pitiful signature, the edges are all messed up, I tried but I'm only so good with a mouse tongue.gif

Well, which tablet do you have?

Also I've wondered - does it work by using a ratio of your screen to the pad, and if so, couldnt you just zoom in on a part of something and get finer detail?

Yeah, i suppose you could, but thats awful fidgety and tiresome - my mum (who's been through art school) tried it and didnt like it at all due to the size and tendency for the pen itself to slide.

That one looks quite different though, to me. Maybe a bad version or something? I can't see that, if the problem is with the pen slipping, a bigger tablet being much of a relief. Not trying to argue with you, just trying to resist paying $500 tongue.gif

Your money - if you want to buy it go ahead, I dont mean to argue either but I paid £70 for this 3-4 years back and they havent really changed since then, Wacom are definitely the best brand our there for them but all I'm saying is that I dont feel it was worth the money paid at the time and I wouldnt from personal experience buy one of that size again.

This is what I've got so far. I used a lens flare and a bunch of smudging with mouse, then drew white to dark grey lines and smudged them in through the tablet.


Of course, it's nowhere near finished. The logo placement and font are just placeholders right now. The design is also extremely rough, and I'm not sure if I like the stars.

I like the lens flare job a lot. The stars not so much, but mostly because they're square.

I'm kind of re-doing mine, so expect something a little different but in the sam vein.

Here's a rough draft of what I'm thinking of right now - hope KR Machine doesn't mind if I took his silhouette and tried to make it look epic biggrin.gif

Thinking more on it, I think the KR machine picture was a good choice cool.gif With the light behind him it kind of seems like 'the sun is coming up' on your guitar playing or something like that, the door has been opened, etc. And you can't really tell what kind of guitar it is, besides the headstock... except its probably not like a V but it covers a good range. Also no offense to KR but with the silhouette going and the hair it could be either a man or a woman.

I looked through the gmc picture thread trying to find someone with a good stance for like an hour tongue.gif I almost used Gabriel but his picture was a bit small and a little cut off. But I think it turned out nicely.
