Hi I'm up for making pencil sketches of people for a bit so yeah if you want to do that here's a form thing I'll try to get them done in a day or two. Also I can do some with colored pencil, but that might take longer. So anyways, form.
Pencil or colored pencil:
Name:
Hair color and length:
Eye color and other details for eyes:
Face features and expression:
Clothes:
Pose:
Anything else:

Probably not going to be any good so just a heads up.

I have a Wacom Intuos 2...I think. It's actually my brother's, and we got it from a thrift store, so. xD It works great for me, anyways. :P Just no pressure sensitivity, at least not with my laptop as it is. /sighs/
If this one ever starts breaking down, I'd like to buy a new tablet eventually (coughthecintiqlookssoradbut$$$), but I'm going to wait until I have computer that's actually compatible (mine doesn't care so much about pressure sensitivity. it's not even supposed to be used with wacom tablets apparently??).

That's just how it is for me, but I don't really have any recommendations. I'd suggest you watch some reviews of different tablets, and maybe ask some artists here and there what they use until you can narrow down your choices. In the end, get whatever seems like it has quality + is affordable for your budget. (:

Thanks a lot! If I can't save up enough I could always ask for a (more expensive) tablet for Christmas and help pay. I'll do that!

Speaking of artist tablets, how exactly do they work? I've heard about them but don't even know their basic functions.

Mine looks like this (but without the mouse):

You can see it has all the little buttons on the top, which could be really useful, but they don't work on my computer. In general though, I don't think most tablets have those buttons..not sure. I think the Intuos5 has buttons like this:


The stylus/pen is like a mouse, since it's much easier to draw with something shaped like a pencil instead of an actual mouse.

Anyways, it's just a way of drawing on the computer. You draw with the stylus/pen onto the tablet, and whatever you draw is transferred to the computer. So instead of seeing your drawing at the tip of the pen, like with an actual pen and paper, you see it on the computer. That's why it takes most people a few drawings before they get used to a tablet--it's a little strange at first to see a drawing appear on the computer, but not see your pen next to it as you draw. ^_^' Unless you get a tablet like the Cintiq--where you draw directly onto the screen.

In the picture above, do you see that button on the pen? Those are two buttons that you can calibrate to do what you want when you're on whatever drawing program you use on the computer. Generally, one of them does the right-click (like on a mouse) and the other does a double-click. Tapping the board/tablet is like a left-click. Tapping and dragging is the same as left-click and dragging with a normal mouse.

As an example, I personally left one of them as the right-click button, like on a mouse, so I can drag the screen (of the drawing program) and move around easily + zoom in/out on places if I need to. I left the other button at default, so when I click it, it opens up a handy little color picker and some brushes I can use. I changed this for different programs. ^u^

Sorry, that was kindof long. I'm not sure if I answered your question or not. xD

i just thought i'd put my two cents in - the intuos pro is really really good, at least for me. the medium size is small enough to fit on my (pretty narrow) desk and big enough to actually have room and draw on it - i couldn't recommend it enough!! they're coming down in price too i think, so they're not too expensive

Thanks so much! It does sound pretty difficult to draw without seeing it at the tip of your pen though... I think I'll look into the cintiq and see how it works

I got to use one the other day and I drew an eye it was fun. It was a Wacom Intuos, and it worked pretty well.
