I was wondering is wacom the only tablet out there? is it the best? how does one determine which one is good. Should one not get a small one? I hear there are different sizes how do you know what size you will need. My daughter is an artist and has been drawing since she could hold a pencil. I wanted to get her a tablet for Christmas but this Christmas was tight. I am hoping to get her one soon. We downloaded the starter edition of ArtRage yesterday. She has been palying with it. We want to encourage her to continue with her art. I own Painter X but it is pretty complicated this seems to be easier well at least it appears to be. I heard the previous editon of ArtRage is free to download is this true?
