    So I've always been into drawing and loved doing it but it was always on paper :3. Anyways I've seen a lot of people using tablets and just drawing on the computer which seems much easier, and probably more accessible. I've already seen the post about getting a Wacom Tablet which I think I would want to do but what program do I use? And any other suggestions on something to get or do would be appreciated :p

    Define graphic design, drawing online or stuff like Photoshop.

  4. If you don't have Photoshop or Illustrator installed, try Paint Tool SAI. It's a great drawing tool that's above the level of MS Paint/GIMP, and is basically an introductory course to the tenants of the other Adobe programs.

  5. Once you get things going on drawing, I might have a request or two for you.

  8. Paint Tool Sai is quite nice. I like it more then photoshop XD

    For price rance I was able to find Sai for free and the tablet cost mostly depends on how big and advanced it is. I mean I got the small Wacom Bamboo fun tablet for like $100...while others I got like the Medium Wacom Intuos4 was around $300. Where you get it and whether its on sale can contribute as well.
