Art on the Wacom Bamboo Tablet

Finally! I've managed to fight the urge to just zone out in front of my laptop and surf endlessly, and drawn something rather decent.

This time, I decided to draw on my tablet.

Now Josh bought me Wacom's Bamboo Fun Tablet more than a year ago but to be honest, I've never really used it very much because I found it difficult to use. Don't get me wrong, it is a fantastic little device; the pen is comfortable to use and has an amazing pressure sensitivity. Definitely better than using a mouse!
The only problem is that I much rather to use Adobe Photoshop than the software (Corel Painter Essentials) it comes with, to draw.
While I am able to use the tablet to draw in Adobe Photoshop, I found it rather unsatisfying as it did not have the many awesome brushes found available in the Corel Painter Essentials.

I am aware that I can download the brushes but I am but a total n00b when it comes to this. I don't even know the types of brushes, let alone the names! I am strictly a sketch artist. I can't even colour right.

Thus, I am left with no choice but to learn a new software.

At the moment, I'm still learning  :)

      First, a quick sketch and colouring

      Additional colouring and blending

      Further shading and blending

It's still incomplete. Hopefully I'll be able to play with other types of brushes to see if I can bring her features out. I'm not good with how lighting reflects on people so we'll see how it goes.

So far, so good. I'm really enjoying the tablet, much to Josh's relief! :D
Too bad I didn't start sooner!

My kid's computer has got a virus on it, I need to connect to the internet while in Safe Mode with Networking, but I while in the correct mode there is no internet connection. I am using wireless internet, I just tried to physically connect the computer with the actual internet cord and that did not work.

Hi, i have the exact same tablet, and i noticed that you said it had "amazing pressure sensitivity" , for me, my tablet makes the lines really "blocky" and rigid and i just wanted to ask you if, what you mean by "pressure sensitive". I use an application called "Paint tool sai" and there's an option where you can taper your brush strokes which apparently can only be done with a pressure sensitive tablet.
