thinking about buying a tabled and he praied your wallpapers which were made via tabled he said but i cant see a
difference to the things i can make with the mouse so im in conflict about its worth.
PS: im sorry in advance if yopu feel offended by what i said in he SB i like your Wallpapers in skills but not all are
my liking in motivte and scenary.
You don't have to apologize. I understand that not everyone likes my style.
ok, so the thing is that a graphic tablet is a great help especially for those who want to paint. It's extremely
difficult to paint with a mouse and when you use the tablet pen it feels way more like you're actually drawing on a
physical sheet of paper.
You are mainly a vector artist so I don't know if a tablet's really needed in your case. I would say you've mastered
vectors already and if you do not intend to "paint" digitally, then your mouse is probably enough. What tablet
could help you with, would probably be cutting down the time spent on creating art. It's simply easier to move around on
the canvas in a graphic software with a tablet, and ever since I started using mine, my digital art takes considerably
less time to finish.
If you are using some more sophisticated software like Photoshop, then once you get a tablet, it should detect that
software and react with it. In my case, after I installed my Intuos, the brushes in my Photoshop changed. A lot of them
are now pressure sensitive and some can even read the angle at which I hold the tablet pen.
Like Val has already stated above, tablet is perfect for more complicated backgrounds. It gives you a lot more freedom
and possibilities than vectoring. You needn't vector every single line, for example. I guess you can imagine the
difference. While you have to make even the otlines for a lineart with vectors, you could simply use a pressure
sensitive brush to get the same effect. Of course that painting will never be as smooth as vectoring but I think that's
the issue of the main/original purposes of vector and raster art. You can also use the pressure and angle sensitivity,
which I mentioned above, or brushes with various opacity levels. Moreover, it's way easier to make both smudged and
sharp shadows and create lighting effects. Those are some of the advantages.
Val is also correct about which tablet to get as a beginner. I, too, have heard a lot of people say to get the Bamboo
tablet for the beginning. However, since I absolutely love visual arts, drawing and painting, I bought an Intuos 4. In
regard to size, personally I have the size L(arge) so it was pretty expensive but a medium or even a small tablet can
help you quite a bit if you're just learning and/or want to give it a try.

take a look at the Wallpapers here which were made via Tablet but dont know how to search specific for them (dont know
if there is a Tag for it)
Unfortunatelly, there is nothing like that here on MT. You just have to search manually.
