|My desktop, and my Genius MousePen i608x|
I'm so thankful now that I've got this pen tablet, since I think I could work better with digital arts. It sort of needs some practice to get used with, but that'd probably happen in no time. I bought the pen tablet for 2,890 pesos (sorry, don't know how to convert it in other currencies XD), and I hope it'll all be worth it.I want this pen tablet, together with my care, to last for a long time (something like more than five years haha). I didn't want to spend a fortune on a Wacom Bamboo Pen & Touch since it's for the professionals and it's so expensive... My allowance, no matter what method of saving I do, will not reach its price, so I chose an alternative brand. XD I'm a hobbyist, and I just wanted to have a pen tablet which is sturdy and useful enough for my manga projects and other artworks.
My first time using the tablet isn't too bad, and in a few hours I was able to get a hold of it. My work area is 8" x 6" and it's a good thing I chose it over the 5" x 3" tablet! XD I realized that I couldn't work properly using a smaller tablet or maybe it's just me. I thought that pen tablets were having this "slippery" feel whenever the stylus is brushed over the work area. But no. It actually seemed that I was simply drawing on paper. It's really good for a beginner like me, and I guess I'll have a pretty nice bonding with my new techie best friend. XD
So far, I'm still testing it, and for the next six days, I might excessively use it, just to see if it's suddenly going to conk so I could still avail the "one week replacement" warranty. XD
