    I just went onto Amazon, and searched for the cheapest tablet I could find. It's a Genius (brand). If I remember, it was about $25. It works fine for anything I need, and is 8x6. I sometimes have problems getting it to work, but then I just tap the pen on it really hard, and it starts working again. I would suggest it to anyone!

    I tend to stick with Wacom, they seem to make the best tablets. I used to have a Graphire of some description but it was getting old and didn't work well on multi-monitor setups (I'm told the newer Wacom tablets do)

    What they both said!

    Photography can also be art, right?

    I just got a Bamboo tablet for Christmas, though I haven't used it yet. Guess I'm too attached to my pencil and paper.

    Heh that's pretty sweet.

    If its the first tablet you've ever used you should give it a go, it's very intuitive once you get used to it.

    I was always such a perfectionist that i ruined good sketches by digitising them, badly. This one is kinda ok though. Got hooked on the Tau from WH40K and my "royal gaurd" paint scheme.

    Also i could never get manga down properly.

    Nacimota, those are quite nice! I tried to do some abstract 3D stuff with Blender a while ago but I was never much good with it. I might dump a few images if I come across the folder.

    I do, however, compose music! Hopefully this will be of some interest, even though it's not exactly visual art.

    Nice, do you have a midi file of that? I'd like to listen to it too :p

    I also make music (yay) but more in an electronic way:
