Design Creatively with The Wacom Intuos Pro Tablet

Creative people are only limited by their imaginations and the tools that help bring those ideas to life. While some prefer the old fashioned paper and pencil method, others have jumped on board of using the digital method. Whether you are a new artist looking for the best way to bring your art to life or a veteran looking to take your designs one step further, then this post is for you! I am about to enhance your world by sharing information about the Wacom Intuos Pro Tablet with you!

Wacom Intuos ProThe Wacom Intuos Pro Tablet is a pen tablet that allows you to quickly and professionally edit photos and create digital artwork using natural pen control. Gain precision and control, speed your workflow, and take advantage of all the pressure-sensitive capabilities in your favorite creative software, thanks to the innovations built into the Intuos Pro.

Features include:

  • Pen With 2,048 Levels Of Sensitivity. The included pen mimics the sensitivity and control of traditional art tools. It responds to 2,048 levels of pen-pressure sensitivity and the angle that you hold the pen.
  • Efficiency Is At Your Fingertips With Programmable Keys. This tablet has eight application-specific ExpressKeys, which let you use pre-selected shortcuts or program your own.
  • Control You Can Feel. The finger-sensitive Touch Ring provides intuitive control of canvas rotation, brush size, scrolling, and other functions.
  • Enjoy Wireless Flexibility. With the included Wacom Wireless Accessory Kit, you can create digital artwork without being hindered by cords or cables. You can always also connect directly to your computer.

I also want to mention that the Intuos Pro line has several different sized tablets that range from small to large and it even includes a special edition. So you can decide what price point and size of tablet is best for you and your line of work.

We ended up going with the Intuos Pro medium. It’s not too small and not to large, guess that’s the idea behind “medium” right? 😉 The medium is about the size of a laptop but it is quite thin so it can be stored right into the same bag you carry your laptop in.

I wanted to share with you all my excitement when our tablet arrived so I put together a quick unboxing video of the tablet. I apologize as this was my first video so it’s not the greatest. I also had to film under my photography lights (thus the craft stuff on the sides) because it’s been raining here for a few weeks straight. Anyways, onto the fun…

I also wanted to break the video down even further so here is what included with your Wacom Intuos Pro Tablet:

If you have been following my site for some time now then you know my husband is in school for video game design. He is actually wanting to become a professional concept artist and is even in the process of developing his own game. Just this last quarter he actually got into his digital art classes and his school recommended Wacom tablets to complete the remaining classes for his degree. In fact, not only does school recommend them, but it is the exact brand they use in all of their digital classes. Pretty cool right?

So over the next few weeks I will be sharing you our experience with this amazing tablet. So far, we (and by we I mean my husband) LOVE it! He loves the ability to work on his artwork on his lunch break, while at school, and even at home. It truly is a must-have tool for any artist, graphic designer and even photographer. So stay tuned for more information about this tablet coming your way!

5 Tools Every Game Artist Needs Simplistically Living

Friday 18th of September 2015

[…] We live in a digital world and as a game artist, it is so important you understand and adapt to that even if you grew up as a pencil and paper kind of guy. With Wacom, you are able to draw your ideas directly on the tablet and into your computer. It helps eliminate the need for scanning images in and cleaning them up (although you can do that too). It is an industry standard nowadays to showcase your skills and abilities to use a tablet to draw and the software that accompanies it. Personally, I also think it shows how serious you are as an artist and is professional in this field. You can actually read more about Wacom here. […]
