I just learned about them. Are they useful? I'm wondering if I should get one. And maybe why you didn't use it for this illustration? I am trying to paint a picture in my mind about tablet, I'm just getting into vector art.
some people use them for vector art, i dont really see the point. vector art is more structured and i guess mechanical, so the mouse seems to work for that. if u wanna use the pencil tool tho in illustrator with the tablet, that can work, but i still prefer the mouse. i think if u get one, get one with the mouse/pen combo - ur prob more likely to use it then cos they close to each other/easy to switch.
thanks for the tip, that was def one of my concerns, ease of switching, I was assuming that it could be difficult with some tablets. I can imagine doing something like using the pen on a tablet can become easier though (more natural), maybe I'm wrong.
