I just got a tablet... nothing fancy, just the cheapo Bamboo Splash. But a really big upgrade from my 12-year old Graphire. Let's see how it works... gonna do a "drawing a day" thing for three weeks to see if I can get used to it. If not, I am returning it.
That being said, everything I've drawn digitally thus far has been with a mouse. Granted, it's not that much. But only because it's really difficult and frustrating. I have to sketch on paper, scan it in, then do everything else with a mouse... bleh.
Wish me luck.
