Product Review: Wacom Tablet

Today we are chatting with Eric about his recent project with our Intuos Pro.

Eric used this super cool tool to combine his interest in art, machines, and prosthetic limbs to create a character using the newest Adobe Photoshop technology.

Let’s get started!

1) What are you working on?

In my free time I am recreating the character called Eye of the Machine, which I will post online to connect with other artists. The idea for this creature came from a dream.

2) How did you make it? 

I scanned the original image in black and white, and from there, I took it to a new level and perspective by using Photoshop. Although I am familiar with Photoshop, this is the first time I’ve used a tablet.

*He completed the project in 3 days

3) What did you learn while making it that might be useful to others?

Using a traditional “click-mouse” was a drawback for me, so that’s why I like the tablet because it feels like I’m actually drawing the image by hand. Using a tablet feels funny at first, but it changes the way I think of drawing.
