Wacom tablets are a popular alternative to the mouse for painting, drawing, and navigating your computer in a more natural position. In this course, artist and teacher John Derry shows how to get up and running with a variety of Wacom tablets (Intuos, Cintiq, and more), covering everything from setup to stylus selection. He then shows how to speed up your workflow and enhance your command of the drawing surface with ExpressKeys, the Touch Ring, and other controls. Plus, learn about tablet ergonomics—which makes your Wacom even more compatible with your working conditions—and follow a few exercises to warm up your drawing arm.
In most lynda.com videos, the Exercise Files are projects that you can download to help you follow along. But this course is a bit more about understanding the tablet and its functionality. So, I've included a few resources in the Exercise Files Tab on the course details page for all lynda.com subscribers. Or, if you're watching this course on a DVD-ROM, the Exercise Files have been included there. You'll see calisthenics exercises to help improve your eye-hand skills as well a schematic of all the tablets to help you understand the features of the tablet better.
These documents aren't necessary to follow along with this course, but they will give you some helpful resources to keep learning and take your understanding of Wacom Tablets to the next level.
