I use a medium Wacom tablet, and the first week or two I struggle with looking at the screen and drawing on the tablet after that it became second nature. Going digital does require you not to draw with the over hand method but rather holding it like a pen. Other then that I really enjoy the experience and use it every day. The more expense option would be Wacom Cintiq.
What do you mean "overhand" method?
I think he means this: http://f.tqn.com/y/drawsketch/1/S/5/2/overhand_down.jpg
I had no idea anybody held a stylus that way, I assumed there wouldn't be enough traction and surface area for it to work. Thank you for the help! I thought he meant not laying your palm down on the surface because it's missing palm rejection software or something.
Yep Scarlett is correct, a lot of traditionally train drawers use the over hand method for better control. But a Wacom stylus can't tilt beyond 40 degrees.
I never use the new multi touch so I'm not sure how the palm rejection works though.
