This set of exercises assumes that you have some existing pen and tablet experience.…If you don't, go to the previous beginner lesson.…We'll cover basic up and down motion, as well as utilize your signature to…strengthen your eye-hand coordination.…You can reference your Exercise Files for this example tablet workout.…Now, to begin, we're going to use your signature as a means of just starting to…adapt to using something that you're very familiar with as a means of getting…used to transferring your already existing muscle memory to the tablet.…
So what I'll often do is I'll just sit and keep repeating my signature over…and over, until what happens essentially is it becomes nothing more than kind…of an abstract pattern.…But the fact that you're using something you already have really good…muscle memory for, is a good way to start to transfer that kind of feel onto the tablet.…Once you've played around with that for a while, I want you to progress to…starting to use this lined ruled paper, which I provide for you in the Exercise folder.…
