    Tablets and a piece of paper

    If you have a graphics tablet, try putting a sheet of paper on top. I find that it can make a huge difference to how the drawing process feels.

    anyone ever use the felt nib on wacom pen ? Wacom store sells it for Intuos pen but no mention of it for Graphire which is what i use...it is suppose to have a similar effect to the paper trick... I'm wondering what the difference is between the Intuos and graphire pen and whether or not the felt nibs will fit in graphire pen and work on the graphire tablet.

    I don't know if the felt nibs will fit a graphire pen, but I use them and love them with my Intous. It definitely feels like there is more grip, and it makes a nice *squeak* like a marker when you use it.


    As for the paper on the tablet surface, one thing to keep in mind is that it might cause the tip to wear down faster. The paper surface is a whole lot rougher on the tip than the plastic.

    They'll fit. The pens use the same nibs.

    I would like to get a Wacom Intuos 3 tablet...
    Could someone tell me what size to go for?
    I'm looking at the 4X6 atm because of cost, do you think this will be too small?

    Thanks for any advice or recomendations.

    I would have to go bigger as a personal preference...as well I'm saving for an Intuos...no smaller than 6X8 which is what my graphire 3 is.

    Bigger is not always better. I have a 30cm x 30cm oversized intuos2 tablet and it's quite unwieldy. The broad rim makes it so big it doesn't fit well on your lap, but the size of the thing also makes it hard to use next to a keyboard. So go for big, but don't overdo it. Try one out if you can.
