Day by day, year after year

After long reflection, I could not resist buying a drawing tablet, backlit, the Cintiq 13 HD Wacom.

You can find in section Techniques Digital a tutorial about digital drawing.

The drawing tablet

Chosing the tablet

Painting digital, it is possible to make and remake one's sketches, put the tones and colors to satisfaction, or loss of patience.

I work with Photoshop, CS6 version. This version is not the latest, but allows many functions, whose I know that just a few.

For drawing, a tablet is useful, for my part I can not draw at all with the mouse. The tablet allows, with some adjustments, to find almost the feel of drawing or painting.

The tablets leader is Wacom, there are some competing but much less visible brands. On this site, you will find a comparison and tips to choose yours.

Tablets vary in price depending on their size, backlight, multi-touch capabilities (functions such iPad to zoom, move an image with two fingers on the screen). This ranges from € 80 to over € 3000, so there is a rather wide range.
