Buy a Wacom tablet. £110(English pounds)+VAT and bundled
with Artrage and PhotoshopElements. After months of anguish
and despair and giving up and trying again and asking for
'beyond my ken' Artrage forum help and abandoning it and
declaring "back to pen and paper", I have eventually TWIGGED
and now mastered Artrage drawing on a Wacom tablet
("Bamboo Fun") and printing out and emailing.
You WILL get one eventually. Do it NOW!
I've just sent this info to a colleague who has been struggling
to draw direct on screen with mouse (NK application)
and has gone back to pen and paper.
Note though that my requirements are very basic —
B&W simple/loose cartoons.
PS Dare I trust any upgrade? (Hate the pesky things)
PPS I export to PhotoshopElements for cropping and text.
