Hey guys c: Wow, I'm awkward at starting things like this so I'll just jump straight to the point: I'm looking to buy a drawing tablet. As I have no experience in this whatsoever, I'm looking to the dA community to give me a little weigh in.
My only criteria for the tablet is:
- Must be under $150
- Working area of at least 6x8 (larger the better)
I've been looking at Wacoms, especially the Bamboo, but I've been hearing things about wiring issues and no erase buttons on their pens.
I also took a peek at Monoprice tablets, but according to some reviews they aren't compatible with SAI.
As far as programs go, I don't even know where to begin. I'm looking for one that is preferably free. (I'm just getting into all this so the less money I spend, the better) I've been recommended SAI, but wasn't given any reasons to why.
I really appreciate any and all input, and look forward to joining the ranks of digital artists.
