Re: Wacom workflow guide?!

not necessarily needed, i personally just get a smoother feel for it when i use a neew tip. i only use the standard white ones also.

i start to feel the tip drag a bit and it becomes sloped, like a marker.

it's minor, but i like new ones every couple of months. but i also use it for everything 10 hours a day, i'm very light handed, but i brush hard for certain instances.

Thanks, good to know what to look for. I'll check my 2 pens under my loupe for any wear and tear. I think and hope I got some extras stashed away to try out and see if they make a difference.

Just wear, you can see it on the tip. Yes some people push much harder on the tablet than others. If you have a light touch like me you can get away without replacing the standard tip about 6 months. Some people don't use pressure sensitivity at all for D&B and just take the opacity down to 1%, i don't like this but its quite possible to work this way if you want.

This is a subject not often mentioned, and I've never heard it spoken of here on this site, or hardly ever reference to Wacom. A growing problem, Repetitive strain. It is extremely possible when doing intricate skin work that you eventually get sore forearms. My advice is to 1 stop and take a rest. Don't push until it goes snap. 2 - vary the pressure setting in the wacom driver, and the size of the active area on your tablet. Keeping a variety of movements in this way is extremely important, avoid repeated use of the same strokes going the same way, with the same pressure.
