Completely Intimidated by Technology

I admit it, I have a serious addiction to clip art.  So, today, I treated myself  to a Bamboo Splash drawing tablet! I’m so excited!  I could hardly wait to get it home and try it out.  I set it up, installed all the software, played with it for about 15 minutes, and now, here I am, blogging.  I am COMPLETELY OVERWHELMED and have NO CLUE where to start!

This little bugger is very intimidating...Now what?

Who has advice for me?

  1. I have never heard of that before...but I do love me some clip art :) Best of luck...and I can't wait to see what you create!

  2. Don't worry - you'll get the hang of it in no time. What program are you using with it? I found using the tablet was the easy part, but learning the program (in my case, photoshop) was a huge learning curve. Lots of online tutorials! But looking back, technology in general has completely revolutionized both my art and my teaching - in a good way!
    Let me know if I can help with any questions to get you started. :-)
    Good luck!

    1. Aw thanks so much! I have played around with Photoshop before, and I got discouraged very fast as I also found it was a big learning curve. Technology doesn't come easy for me. The programs that came with the tablet are ArtRage3 and AutoDesk Sketchbook Express. I watched a few tutorials online last night and I think ArtRage is more user friendly, so I'll start there.


I LOVE hearing from you!
