No laughing now! But for the record, I’d like to share with you my very first effort to totally ”hand paint” something with my brand new Wacom Tablet. This was really an exercise in experimenting with different brushes from within Photoshop along with adjusting the pen’s sensitivity. I’m using an Wacom Intuos Pro Medium. Just let me say there is clearly a learning curve ahead.
Well Doug, I won’t comment on the painting but after you get use to the tablet, you will love it. Most of the Topaz stuff really doesn’t need a tablet but if you want to do photo retouching or hand painting, it will make a world of difference. I’ve been using a Wacom tablet for ten years (maybe longer). There are a lot of videos on photo retouching. You might check out https://phlearn.com if you want to do more.
