    Question What tablets ? Any video tutorials ?

    Hi All ,

    Absolutely fantastic art on kids thread - if you haven't checked it out yet, I recommend viewing (great inspiration).

    On to my main questions (I am a complete newbie to this art thing).

    Had a look on the Wacom site at their tablets to try and work out what
    tablet I should upgrade to, I am finding the Bamboo tablet a bit small as I
    have large hands (due to all the stretches done playing guitar over the years).
    I reckon maybe something a bit larger than A4 would be the ticket.
    Any recommendations from the more experienced artists among you would be gratefully received (doesn't have to be a Wacom recommendation if your experience has proven different).

    Lastly - Do any of you know where I can get video tutorials for Art Rage ?
    (Someone must have done some by now!! )

    A great forum and an Art package I have fallen in love with.

    Best wishes to you all.

    I have a Bamboo and find I like the size quite a bit. I think bigger is not always better. Keep in mind that the tablet area represents your entire screen and that you're going to be darting around frequently to adjust settings and whatnot. Even using the hotkeys I find myself doing a lot of back and forth for picking colors and the like.

    Just my two cents.

    I'd also be interested in any videos that might be available.

    Large. If you want to make use of it good, take the largest you can affort, i got a wacom cintiq wx + wacom A4, never regret of the costs.

    It feel like naturally drawing!

    Went to and put in ArtRage and there are quite a few videos. Maybe this link will work:

    If not do what I did
