    What do you think about this effect of making a photo to a pencil sketch? Is it similar like the effect created in online free sites?...

          Some very nice work there - I must get myself a tablet but I'd like to try one out first.

            Hi, Geoff! Welcome to RetouchPro! Explore and Enjoy!

            Some people take to a tablet like a duck to water. For others it takes some getting used to. Maybe you can find someone to loan you a tablet for a couple weeks, especially someone who has recently upgraded because most folks who have a tablet would be loath to give it up for any length of time. :-)

            I've only known one person who ever gave up on their Wacom. But if you search around this community you'll find several threads dealing with "should I get a tablet".

              Welcome Geoff...

              I just noticed that Corel is selling Painter X for $50 (usually $399) if one also buys a Wacom tablet. If you don't yet have Painter and plan on getting a tablet, this is a great price.

                Oh thanks! I saw some great Corel Painter Essentials work last week and was considering that as well... I'll check Corel online as a starting point.
