look ma! sga doodles!  
i just love it when the artist in me meets my inner 12-year-old and they come out to play. *sighs happily* as you've probably figured out by now, i spent the entire weekend over photoshop. i finished a couple of projects *coughs*, did research and added the odd stroke or two in a few others but mostly i fooled around with my sparkly new volito2 to get used to it. this is one of the doodles that came out: what you get if you cross hewlett with flanigan? hewligan! hee!

below is a little smthing i started while experimenting with brushes and pen pressure, but force knows when i'll finish.

i'm thinking maybe its time for me to clean the cobwebs from my deviantart account and start using it.

What's the difference between a Volito and a Graphire? :O

Hi there! =) Well, Volito2 is Wacom's low-end model. It costs about 60 eur in Greece now but when I bought it back in November, price was 79 eur which even then was a bit less than half Graphire4's price. Ouch. Main difference is the resolution; Volito has only 1016 dpi to Graphire's 2032. Now, with only 1016 dpi resolution, it's not exactly top notch, but it's way better than the user-'hostile' ePen I had before. Smooth where ePen was jumpy and slow, Volito has been a decent compromise for the money spent. Graphire4 is the equivalent of a wet dream to me but sadly I can't afford it, especially since I'm only using digitizers for fun and not for serious work.

OOoooooo. Gotcha. For some reason, I saw that the Graphire and the Volito's DPI were the same, which is why I was confused. XD Not to mention I've never actually heard of the Volito beforehand. :D; I actually managed to wheedle an Intuos out of my parents my freshman year and almost four years later, after much banging around and the outer shell being a little loose, it still works beautifully. :D Wacom is so great. &heart;

Thanks for the explanation!
