    Tricks for tablet users

    If you use a tablet and stylus, you can get some pretty good results for straight lines and curves using ordinary rulers and curves. The color image I did today at the studio on my Cintiq (which granted made things a snap for lining up what I was doing visually). The curves were done at home on my Wacom Intuos 2 using a plastic ruler, compass ruler, and curves. I decided today to make myself a tool for the studio for straight lines. I bought an ordinary clear plastic ruler, some double stick tape adhesive, and some felt. I attached two thin strips of felt to the under side of the ruler near the edges. This not only protects the screen but buffs dust off as well while I use it. It makes creating straight lines a snap on any screen paintable hardware you may have access to. Tablet PC users could make use of this.

    Hi Fashmir,

    (I'm treading carefully though a quagmire of innuendo here, in deference to the younger Forum members!)

    I like those ideas, but it's not so easy if you've only got an A6 model.
    It does make a difference!

    I think, if I ever wear this Wacom out, I will buy a far larger one.
    This is something to include in advice on graphics tablets in the future!
    Luck is infatuated with the efficient.

    Huh? Maybe I'm thick, but I have no clue what you are talking about here.

    I believe he was inferring that his "equipment" is smaller than yours. Of course, he only meant his tablet...

    Thank You Fashmir.

    very good to hear this from you.

    at least, it is better than using empty cups to draw curves isn't it. hah.
