I have a Wacom Intuos 6x8...I think anything larger would be too much honestly. Now they also have the ones where you draw directly onto the monitor itself, those are probably really pricey but way cool. I picked mine up at a CompUSA store that was closing so i got about 40% off.

And, here I made the assumption of a Tablet PC, not the drawing tablets. For serious drawing, stick to the tablets that plug in. The PC with a tablet screen is not good (you lose the keyboard almost completely).

In general, it's good to get the biggest tablet you can afford and are actually comfortable with (e.g. similar to a size of paper you would normally use for sketching/painting)... It's usually said to be better to draw with more of your arm than just your wrist, and the smallest tablets don't give you space to do that...

Wacom is a great brand... haven't heard any bad reviews on any model of their product. It's pretty much an industry standard, and you don't have to keep replacing batteries in the pen... I've been keeping an eye on the new Bamboo product line, which seems like it may be a little more affordable for students and young professionals than some of their other product lines, and has had pretty good reviews...

thanks for the info! I really need to start drawing more... iv'e been thinking about getting into illustration.

This may seem silly, but what exactly are the benefits of a tablet vs. just using paper?

I'm very new to digital imaging tools.

I got a Wacom Bamboo tablet.

The benefits of using a tablet (for me) include not having to scan in images. I'm still trying to get used to it, so I'm sure there's more than that.

One thing that is good for the more accomplished artist is the ability to be able to erase entirely without leaving and smudges or whatever, heck you can even erase oil based paint in the digital world...The reason that I say that about a more experienced artist is that it wouldnt be a good idea to always fall back on erasing something, it can become a bad habit. Im no expert by any means and i often find myself using that feature as a crutch. I still stick to my roots alot and draw on paper, scan the sketch and then refine it on the PC. Its really up to you to decide on your style and how you wanna go about it. Good luck with your new tablet.
