I chose the Art version and the bundled Corel Painter Essentials software is brilliant. It is feature-rich for a cut-down version of the full package. It didn't take long to start drawing and painting and once I got the hang of using the pen, it has been a fun experience doing digital painting.
The only thing I am slightly disappointed with is the nib is scratching the surface of the tablet; I didn't expect that. The tablet is pressure sensitive and I am applying varied pressure during the painting process, but still, for a two-week old tablet, I would like it to look like it is still brand new. It is necessary to tilt the tablet into the light to see the scratching, so maybe that is just me being too picky!
I am no artist, I am just a wannabe beginner, but I was stunned with the quality of the painting I was able to produce with the tablet and software. I have attached a photo; this painting took about 10 hours to produce over a few days!
Overall, I love the tablet and the software, but have dropped a star because of the scratchiness of the nib on the surface of the tablet, but don't let that put you off an excellent package.
-the new pen is much thinner and less weighted.
-the contact of the pen and tablet surface feels more resistant and rubbery where my old surface was smoother, this may simply be due to surface wear and tear of my old one, i can't recall how it felt in the beginning.
-the default sensitivity is completely different, i.e I was pressing much harder than i used to for the same effect. There are plenty of settings in the wacom software to help with this, though.
-this tablet (medium) takes up a little more desk room. the active part of the intuos is the same size as my CTL-470, then you have the section for buttons on top.
-if you are used to dragging your hands all over your tablet like me, the touch side of this intuos makes things a little clumsy. for example, accidentally rotating my canvas, zooming in and out, panning, scrolling, etc.
these are all things I put down as *differences* rather than faults, i'm looking forward to working more with this thing and reducing some of the clumsiness i mentioned. After so many years of constant use of my old tablet I trust wacom sincerely for both quality and durability.
I bought it to see if I could learn to do more with photos etc, and planned to use ParticleShop to do things.....
Now, I know it is a small tablet, and not thinking of how tablets work, forgot about that..... so a bit of a mistake perhaps.
Then, with ParticleShop, the brushes seem to take so much computing, i am struggling to get the movement on the pad to the amount of drawing I need to do synced...... I can draw, stop, and the brush continues for maybe 5 secs more - so obviously no control is going to be easy.
The quality seems good, what I have been able to do is good, and I am sure it is down to learning more, and maybe seeing if i can get my system more aligned to do teh work needed.....
Saying that, it is an 8 core, 3.5Ghz with 24Gb of ram, running Win 10 64bit - with 64 bit tools, so, how much more does it need?
Despite having easy-to-learn controls, it took me a while to get used to it - but once I broke it in and got the hang of it I couldn't put it down :D Oh! And you can LEAN on it without having to worry about smudges, haha!
The only thing I would say is lay it down on a flat surface in a comfortable position or your back will hate you. And don't get tempted to pick it up and use it because your lines will go all wonky, lol :D
Overall a really useful and wonderful tool for digital art. Super happy with my purchase.
