I've recently been trying to get into traditional illustration and am looking at getting a graphics tablet. I'm completely new to tablets but have an old Tevion MD41217 that i'm trying to get to grips with but am running into various problems. Basically, it's a crap tablet.. it came with no mac drivers and so after searching all over the place, i've realised that it's one of those products that gets rebadged by everyone under the sun (Tevion, Medion, Trust, Aiptek) so i've managed to track down a set of Mac drivers that get it to work but are barely configurable and present a myriad of problems. Firstly, i run a dual screen setup (MBP>22") and so it sees the top left corner of the 22" and the bottom right of my MBP screen which cause all horizontal strokes to be twice as long as the vertical, other than that, the sensitivity seems to be really bad and all my strokes come out really jagged. As a result, i'm looking at buying a proper tablet and am hoping to get some recommendations. Are wacoms the best and what should i be looking for as a beginner? how important is size, shape (widescreen etc)? what does 'tilt-sensitivity' get me? what price ranges should i be looking at (beginner)? are there any good, cheap wacom alternatives people can recommend? any guides to graphics tablets in general? tutorials on how to approach? Thanks.
