Thanks bro, I am just experimenting at the moment. It wasn't well prepare for the tutorial, it's more like a everyday scribble and how I get my lazy bum to draw. Though I am planing a better ones and better ones. I am also thinking about V-podcast also. It's cool! Thanks for your encouragement.

these are great. I see you use a genius tablet. I was wanting an intuos 6x8 but they are really expensive, I know they are worth the cost but can you comment on how the genius compares to the intuos? Right now I have a graphire 4x5 but it is too small.
Lemme do some investigation...I will get back to you. ;)

Hi Xia!

Quick question! Did you really use a Genius 6x8 pen tablet for this tutorial? If you didn't, which one of your tutorials feature you using the Genius 6x8 tablet? Can you make a post reviewing the pros and cons of a Genius vs Wacom? Can a Genius 6x8 tablet achieve the same results as what you're doing in your tutorials? I know I'm asking too much, but I really want to hear an honest review of between Genius and Wacom without the marketing hype.

Aldrin> Im sure you can Google the reviews, there are plenty. If you have option and comfortable with spending then GET a WACOM. The BIGGER THE BETTER. I have 8 x 9. Most of my tool are given to me by employers after employers. To me that aren't that much different. I have three Wacom at home (two was really old its the white intuo 1 and 2) Im using intuo 3 currently at home I also have one Genius which I hardly use. I do have intuo 2 at work and 32' Cintique and still did know much of the different between the Intuo series. They are fine to me as long as they are pressure sensitive and corrected setting
that's pretty decent video tutorial. Now i think i will be able to use my all new Intuos4 even more effectively. Is there anything especial that you think i should keep in mind.

Wacom> thanks man, wow...this one is pretty old and it sort of not so UM... well. It was way back in 2007, you should go take a look at the more recent tutorial like in 2009 or 2010.
They are much better. :)
