Found my stylus for my tablet. Drew this in celebration. Yes, it's supposed to be blurry like that.

A very fine piece of artwork.

I am looking for a good stylus style mouse to use with my design work. Any suggestions?

I got mine last week. I think I've bothered to pick up a mouse twice since then, and only very briefly.

Who needs to actually do their job at work, anyhow?

What make/model did you get?

very little.  and it's worse b/c i'm an intern, and so i serve no real purpose.  

i got an intuos3 4x5.  maybe i should have gotten the graphire 6x8, but i got a really good deal on this one.  i'm still trying to figure out the ins and outs, of course, but i actually prefer to sketch on the tablet as opposed to paper b/c it erases perfectly clean (and i'm compulsive like that).

also, customizable buttons.... mmmm.... it's so much faster.

I sprung for the 6x8 Intuos, because I thought that the 4x5 would be too small for my liking.

I did some looking before I bought it and found a few reviews that helped me make my decision. I found one that compared Graphire with Intuos and the author much prefered the Intuos, explaining that Graphire doesn't transmit signals as often and it's a noticable difference; she said the lines came out like lots of tiny connected straight line segments compared to Intuos.

I love the pop-up menu - I added it to one of the stylus' buttons and added a whole bunch of keyboard shortcuts to it, different ones for different programs too.

4x5 is pretty small, and i may upgrade in the future, but for now it suits.  my drawing style uses a lot of wrist, so i don't usually go off the drawing surface. if you're doing any painting, the intuos is much preferable; you have more control and the lines are better quality.

of course, it also helps to have art skills, so now i have to work on those... bleh...

You probably have more skills than I do. ;)

My reasoning was that trying to use a mouse in Photoshop was utterly pissing me off for the last how many months, so a tablet might be easier. Sure enough, it gives me much more control and I find it much more natural than using a mouse.

not quite.  my "talent" level is roughly around the population of the moon.  but there's hope for both of us, eh?  the more you practice, the better you get. :)

It might. To give you an idea, http://www.wacom.com/faqs/knowledge_search.cfm?id=204.

As an update to this:

So, today was the first time I ever really used Painter. Admitedly, it's only essentials, but I can get access to Painter IX. I daresay that, after tonight, I definitely will.

I've spent the past few hours on this, and I feel it might be the best digital painting I've ever done.

i'm having a hard time processing what it is. right now it's just a yohnic/phallic tree-ish flesh coloured blur of lines.... but it could be because i'm still up at three in the morning. anyway, happy tabletting....

If that's whatcha see, Pumpkin, that's what it is. Personally, I see a dragonish/smiliar fantasy creature thing. Other see a sea horse, a tree, the flow of time, and a pony.
