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.
I hope you've enjoyed working your way through Wacom Essential Training. If you use either Photoshop or Painter, you may be interested in taking a look at some of my other courses in the lynda.com Online Training Library. In these titles, I go into the specific features of each of these applications that pertain to working with Wacom tablets. The key to improving personal expression with any creative tool is practice, and lots of it. I can show you how to get the most out of a pen and tablet, but the mastery of these tools is up to you.
Good luck with your expressive journey, and always remember that the journey is the reward.
