Looks great! When it comes to tablets, do you think it's worthy to invest in a branded new model?

ANJA: thank you! its so much fun!

my wacom graphics tablet is reallllly old, id say it would be at least 7 or 8 years old! i've never used anything else so i cant really compare but if i spread the money over the years i've had mine it's well and truly worth it and i would do it again in a heartbeat! if it's something you use all the time it MUST be user friendly and kind on your wrists etc. so design is pretty important! the cheaper ones often miss that.

my main advice is to get one with a decent work space (usually the 'middle' size!) not too small and not too big. i def. wouldn't get the tiny one. it would be like trying to draw a masterpiece on a post it note!

i also wouldn't get caught up in all the fancy buttons and bits.... all you really need is the pen and the tablet. my basic pen has a button on it already - often used as a 'right click' but i think you can set it to anything! since mine is old i have no other buttons on the actual tablet but i like it that way!

like anything - only buy it if your going to use it :)

email me if you want more tablet talk!! im more than happy to ramble on about them :)

maybe look for a cheapie on ebay....?

Yay! Really appreciate you taking the time.. great advice. Am looking for a second hand tablet online now. Shopping for one with decent work space. Wacom and Bamboo seem to be popular brands so I'll probably end up with one of those. Will definitely show you what I come up with when I play around with it!
