Re: You think drawing with a Wacom is hard?

For someone as co-ordinationally challenged as me, doing anything with an etch a sketch was an impossibility.

It did however teach me something ........ the joy of pure unadulterated violence, when I took a 5lb hammer to it.

I think this guy has attached its stylus to a computer controlled x-y plotter and has just cloned out the leads from the video.

Seriously though, he must have had a really sad childhood to have spent so much time developing skills with a toy that just about all of us consigned to the dustbin. I mean, to get that level of dexterity with it, he must have spent nearly every waking hour twiddling with the knobs. Get a life.

Nonetheless amazing. Thanks for posting Swampy.

So do I.

The difference being I don't do that amount of cloning every day.

I hope my last post doesn't sound over critical. I admire greatly the manual dexterity that's shown in composing the picture, it's just that I wonder at the narrowness of purpose of the artist.

Spending so much time and effort to master such an arcane piece of equipment as an etch-a-sketch does not seem a particularly "healthy" thing to do.

"Because it's there". or "Because I can."
