Wacom eraser Nib do you really use it? Im just too lazy to flip the pen, i preffer picking the eraser inside the software, this is probably because i hated erasing on pencils, because pencils with no eraser looked really bad.

No, im just to lazy, most of the time i preffer to paint on top of the mistake to fix it.

Yes i flip it because i have a soul of a drummer, my hands move all the time.
Have you tried a keypad? They're programmable mini keys that grant you quick access without much effort. To be honest you kinda get lazy once you have all the corresponding keys for a function mapped to one button but it's really effective time wise.
My first Wacom with the graphite 3 and thought the eraser was the best thing ever! So I just stuck with it, also it seems like sort of a hassle to stop and select the eraser tool and whatever program you're drawing in.
i love flipping my pen and using eraser, but, probably two years ago, eraser in my old graphire4 pen broke and doesn't work anymore so i have to use keyboard shartcut (which was so much pain at first).
totally use it - mostly when i'm just sketching and want to get away from the keyboard/monitor a bit (if i'm using a cintiq or cintiq companion) but if i'm using a tablet, i never do - in fact, my bamboo tablet doesn't even have an eraser on the top. so there. haha..
esta es la primer pluma que tengo con el borrador en el extremo opuesto pero nunca lo uso lol estoy mucho más acostumbrado a los hotkeys, eso y además en tradicional jamás uso lápiz y mucho menos las gomas de los lápices porque son horribles jajajajaja
I actually never used it, it takes as much time to flip the pen as picking the eraser in software so I simply changed the double click button on the pen to the eraser shortcut its a lot faster and easier for my workflow like this
En paint tool sai puedes volver el pincel que estas usando transparente (osea que borra) entonces mas bien uso ese, en photoshop igual se puede pero no he encontrado como programar el atajo en los botones de la pluma asi que mejor pinto encima del error orz
I never flip it over any more. I used to back when I started with digital, but now it causes more harm than good. If I flip it, sometimes I forget to flip it back and start erasing more instead of drawing. Or sometimes I then set the eraser to brush. It just feels physically better to use the pen side anyway, and I'm trying to get used to painting over things instead of erasing. Lately I've been treating it like the sketch is drawn with pencil and everything else is paint. You can't erase paint. :U
no because it takes longer then, and i am slow enough at my drawing anyways. it's also harder because the rubber tip surface is round and large so it's not that easy to be precise with detail. it also feels very unnatural. Unlike a normal rubber on paper, the pen rubber glides too easily across the tablet surface.
however if i am multi-tasking and don't want to use laptop touchpad, i use the rubber end of the pen as a mouse. i like the noise it makes when clicking xD
I'm surprised so many people don't use the eraser! I've always seen people complain when the pen on a tablet doesn't have an eraser, so I assumed most people wanted them.
I am a bit of a mix: I tend to just flick the pen and erase (and I have the instinct to do it even when I know the stylus I'm using doesn't have an eraser) because I've always had styli with erasers and I find it less strenuous than going to look for the tool in the program, selecting it and then using it. In Photoshop, though, I often select the eraser because I haven't found an easy way to change the size of it while I'm using it (unlike in Sai and Mangastudio).
After I got a Cintiq I got in the habit of putting all the tools on the right side of the screen because I'm right-handed. To be honest, I should have thought about it sooner!
I use the nib part, not the eraser part lol I dunno, working with the not pointy part was always too awkward for me and it just didn't feel right. I never flip my pen though, I just use keyboard shortcuts~ One hand holding the pen, and the other on the keyboard xD
Yeah I use it, mostly because switching to eraser is even bigger of a pain without room for a keyboard to plug in. Plus I'm not cool enough to paint over things. Honestly though, I never used erasers at all back before tablet draws.
I don't flip it, that is not convenient for me in my workflow. I like to use the undo or switch to the ereaser tool in the software itself. If I paint then most of the time I just use overpaint instead.
It's here, so why not, I guess. It saves the pen tip. But since this eraser tip is pretty loose and much less accurate than the pen tip, I switch between using the eraser tip and picking the eraser in my software and erasing with the pen tip a lot. Depends how accurate i must be with my eraser.
Oddly I flip my pen cause I'm too lazy to have to select the tool in software. I feel like my drawing flows better with the ability to just flip and erase a bit of mistake and then flip back to drawing. Maybe it's just old habits from drawing with an actual pencil years before going digital. *shrug*
