Much thankies to you all for your wonderful comments. ^^

Regarding the hair: It was actually inspired from Christina Aguilera during one of those award ceremonies.

I like a lot.

*wishies she had a tablet* Is it actually easier than mouse?
nai 2005/1/1 - 4:11:21
blumeaniandglove: I actually had mixed feelings. Although it maintains that true 'pen/pencil/brush' feeling between your fingers rather than drawing with a huge brick, I noticed the actual diameter is fairly smaller than the mouse.

Ex: in Photoshop I have the cursor set to an ellipse so I can see the area of the paintbrush. However the tablet only colours in about 50%, while the mouse would normally fill in 100%.

I'm not certain if that's just a setting issue or the tablet itself. X__x

But it's definitely lighter on the carpals. (Note: there is no cure for carpal tunnel syndrome).

Hope that helps. ^.^
