The Beauty of Wacoms

As we all go back to render some of our initial sketches in the Concept Visualization course in the Product Design major, we are all starting to realize the beauty of the Wacom tablets and Photoshop. As we started the tutorials with our professor, Ken Grant, it seemed as if we were doomed: how could one possibly draw on a tablet while looking up at a screen? It seemed nearly impossible. Luckily, the reality is that now we all have a newfound love for these amazing sketching tablets and editing programs. Not only do they allow for easy and quick fixes, but they also allow you to explore so many options without having to make multiple sketches.  If you want to learn more about them, you can click here.  If you ever get the chance to use these, I hope you'll take advantage of it! 

Also, as the winter season comes upon us, I know the classic designer mindset is to constantly be doing things whether that be sketching, building, or reading a book; please please please remember to get some rest and stay well for this season!

All the best, I'll see you designers at home (Rapson)!
