My advice is to read the manual and then just jump right into the arting.  There will be a learning curve of course, but you'll get up to speed with constant use.  Let your tablet replace your mouse for the most part.

Congrats on your new likely-infuriating purchase.

I remember when my roomie bought his first tablet, then tossed it in the closet for a couple months after learning he had to re-learn how to draw.  He's glad he figured it out, and now would die if I took it away from him, but those were some chaotic and profanity-filled first few years of use.

I remember using one for artclass once, I was about to throw it out the window :x but that was a cheapass and bad tablet

Understandable, that...  Bad tablets are impossible.

There are three things as a fur you never cheap-out on...  Drawing equipment, fur suits, and mail-order brides.  You will regret it for the rest of your days if you do.

Haha, yeah. I started using one after my RSI got too bad (I had a terrible desk situation at home). It took me a few days to get used to it but I managed it! And then I wrote this crazy software for it. And that got me a job and bursary at Motorola, so it was a good investment . . .

I also confused some usability researchers at university who were doing a study - I had gotten into the habit of highlighting text to scroll down because it was faster than scrolling (also used the eraser as a middle mouse button).

Funny how a little "out of the box" thinking can vastly improve a product.
And double kudos on your homebrew software fix getting the notice of some higher-up muckity mucks and snagging you a good job.

Damnit!  Why can't my ideas ever pan out to good opportunities?  Oh yeah, I can't draw, code, sing, and am too unsightly to act.  Oh, but they say that ideas are priceless, and the guy who comes up with great ideas is most important of all.  Yeah, well, I have ideas comin' out the wazoo and it ain't done shit for me yet.  Oh and I could make just SOOOOOO much money for EA-Maxis, EA-Dice, Atari, Rockstar, or any good indie developer, if they would ever make the games that play-out inside my head...

Heya GreenReaper.  Motorola interested in getting into the video game market?  Got an idea for a killer Zombie Survival / City Sim game.  No, awww.  Damnit.

Well, I work at Stardock now, which is squarely in the video game market (though that's not my focus), but we have our own problems right now, so I wouldn't rate your chances . . .

Oooh, ow.  Stardock ain't doin so pretty these days.

I mean this with no malice or intended insult, but Stardock games, to me, have always promised much and delivered little.  It would do them a world of good to stop focusing on micromanagement, and work more on AI and general playability.  GalCiv2 for instance, was one of my favorite games, but the AI had two settings.  Pants-on-head Retarded, or Unstoppable Juggernaut.  The Expansions fixed it a little, but not completely.  Like their product, but it's always overly-ambitious what they attempt, and it often handicaps them in the gamer market.

Still, A for Effort, as one of the few independents out there who didn't fold, sell-out, or disappear after one title.

Fuck!  Now I wanna play GalCiv.

Well, yes, it did actually have those two settings, but there were meant to be enough variation between them provided by it deciding randomly to use one or the other to give a fair range of difficulty, depending on what you set it at . . .

And it's OK - I'm far more involved in applications than games at Stardock.

(Now, if you have a problem with LogonStudio or TweakVista . . . ;-)

Tablets aint too hard to work it, trust me in few time you'll love it, that happened with mine

Photoshop, gimp, sai or any fully-compatible program is very recommended for it

(IMO Sai is the besr cuz the stabilizers and some tricks)

You'll quickly get used to it. I kind of got incredibly frustrated at first, but then I learned how to use it.

My handwriting still looks terrible, however.
