Excellent stuff Terry.

These Wacom Tablets, how many do you have to take to get this creative? :D


Seriously, I've seen these graphics tablets for sale at around £70 but not quite sure what the benefits are? Given the opportunity my kids jump onto my best PC and fiddle around with Corel Draw and Photopaint etc., Thinking about buying them a graphics tablet to play with for Christmas, :evil: which I may even get some use from too.... :wink:

Would love to see a demo on doing this kind of thing!!

Glad that snow writting isn't yellow, although judging by the footprints it looks like it should be :-?

EDIT
Doh! There I go stating the obvious and trying to retell the joke. :oops:

Hi
Jenny ,i cropped my van from a photo onto a new layer and drew all the rest
martin these tablets make it possible to draw straight onto the screen
and i would say if you draw then you gotta get one you wont regret it

mort i didnt think about yellow , nearly put in a little steam though

next lot will include some yellow ...gotta get details right

Terry wasn't me that mentioned yellow :-?

but i was going to warn about eating yellow snow but i thought it may lower the tone of this Christmas card so i didn't.
But now that you bring it up :evil:

Nice one Terry, are you printing them yourself as well ?

Martin, what would your kids rather draw with a pencil or a mouse ?
I am not very good at drawing with a mouse so I use the tablet, you can also trace stuff dead easy to.

Martin,

If you are looking for a cheap tablet for your kids to play with I bought one from the gadgetstore.com (might be gadgetshop) for under £20 plus loads of other interesting little devices like usb multiports etc. They are part of the Serif group and some of their offerings are very good value.

Get round to your local Aldi ASAP, they may still have some of their offerings left. A4+ Graphics tablet £30.00 (USB, cordless mouse & pen).

Bought one to replace my oldie (pen attached).

Works brilliantly.
