I finally got a tablet. Hooray for late Christmas presents! I am now the proud owner of a Wacom Bamboo. I was honestly a little scared to get it, because I thought it was going to be really hard to learn how to use, and that I'd have to relearn everything. But, after three hours of owning it, it's easier than I ever could have imagined. Granted the only thing I've done is write my name and paint a sphere, but I figured it was best to start small. The sphere turned out pretty well. It was a bit hard to shade at first, but after about five minutes it was easier than it ever was with a mouse.
Well, that's basically my rant. Just wanted to share my tablet owning elation with the world.
