Hardware Question
#365270 - 04/17/17 08:52 PM Attachment: nitedrvr.png 185 KB (1 downloads)


It recently came to my attention that most of the guys who do vector work on here use some kind of pad that enables them to draw on the monitor with a pen. That certainly explains how they're able to crank this shit out so fast and with such quality where me and my point-to-point mouse clicks take a hundred years even to do simplistic things like this.

My question is: what device are you using to trace on?

For me personally, back when I was doing the artwork, I just used Photoshop to thoroughly clean everything up nicely since I'm pretty fast with it, then vector small pieces at a time with Vector Magic then piece them back together. I did a few using Illustrator way early on but never really got comfortable using it as it seemed too slow of a process.

Would love to get back into it but the last few times I've tried, I get pulled away from it for various life reasons.

I do check the forums regularly still and everyone is doing some good work.

For the record - and it'll be no surprise to anyone - mine are all mouse clicking in Photoshop.

Albeit, I don't use a traditional mouse, preferring trackballs.....
