My New Drawing Tablet! - The Wacom Intuos

Hey everyone!

I'm super happy today, because I got a really good deal on a brand new drawing tablet! The Wacom Intuos Creative Pen Tablet (small) usually sells for $79. But I managed to get mine for $59.99!

For a limited time, Staples is having a sell on these fantastic tablets, giving you a $20 rebate if you buy one! they're sold out online, so you'll have to check them out at your local Staples if you're interested.

If you're unaware what these things are for, you plug the tablet into your computer, and then whatever you draw on the tablet appears on your computer, if you're using Photoshop, MS Paint, or whatever drawing program you choose. It takes awhile trying to get used to looking at the computer and not at where your pen is moving, but it's not too difficult to get used to.

I had another one, that I bought when I was a Sophomore in high school, I believe. So it's been like 6 years since I got my first tablet. Unfortunately lately it was bugging out quite a bit, and it had scratches from the few times it was left in reach of my dog. So it was time for a new one.

They come in different sizes, but I got the small one, since it's cheapest. Someday, I would really like to get the medium or even large, but we'll see if I can talk myself into buying one so expensive. (The one I really want is $2000. I don't think I'll ever be getting that one. But it's nice, since you get to see what you're drawing right on the tablet!)

I was super excited getting to open it. It was nicely packaged, and I had to do my best not to tear everything part in my excitement to get it it set up!

It's a really pretty design and I really love it. The surface is just slightly rough, so it really feels like I'm drawing on paper, which is fantastic in my opinion. So happy with this purchase already!

I've already started a picture on it, for my friend Bailey. I'm drawing her in her female Thor cosplay she wore last year! Here's my work in progress:

Wish me luck on doing well! Drawing on a tablet feels pretty new to me since I haven't done it in a while. Definitely is going to take a little bit of learning again.

Have you ever owned a drawing tablet?


  1. Cool! I would love to have a drawing tablet, but I still suck at digital drawing, I haven't even tried one :P My PC won't even run photoshop methinks. So I draw with pen & paper :P (Or mayhaps I will try if there is any good drawing prog for iPad? Np idea?)

  2. WOW! Awesome work girl! Great blog too! I'll definitely be back to visit! :D

  3. Your artwork looks awesome from what i've seen! Would love to see more :D
    I own a Wacom Bamboo but don't use it much these days since i hardly have the time to draw... which is a shame ><
