lol

I want to get myself a tablet but im not sure what to look for, I've heard from some ppl that wacom is a good brand etc.

I am looking into this

https://www.macconnect.de/images/intuos3_a6.jpg

I dont know if its big enough or too small or what. How big does a tablet screen need to be for confortable drawing full bodied characters?

I mainly want to use it for working in photoshop mayby learn skinning with it also practasing my drawing skills with it.

Thanks guys.

Eh, it's not big enough in my opinion. Find the wacom tablet without those little buttons. Mine has 6.5in X 7in of drawing space and it's more on the cheaper side.

in my experience ive had two sizes 4x5 and 6x8 (i think >_>) the 4x5 was almost the same, but it was harder to freely sketch, unless you like small hand movements when drawing i wudnt go for a 4x5 but if its what u want then its not a huge deal... but the bigger the better really =/

I have a 6x8 Wacom Graphire 3 that works well for me which I got for $160 off of amazon.com.
From what I've heard the Wacom brand seems to be the best out there; their tablets are sturdy, easy to install, and unlike some of the other tablet manufacturers, you don't need batteries to operate the pen.

I know it improved my skinning skills, and it's just fun drawing random stuff ^_^

anyway, i have a Genius tablet....
might sound a little weird heh..
when i first bought it, it was very hard for me to adjust to it...then i just packed it and it collected dust for a month or so, then i said to myself and i wont let it go to a waste and i tried it for a week and i realised that it's great.

my tablet is HUGE, it takes half of my desk, which is a little annoying but it's really handy when making full sized drawings! ^_^
