Create more with Wacom
The ‘Create More’ site is helping to spread the message about the Intuos Pro range of Wacom Pen Tablets, which pro artists and illustrators worldwide are using to push their creative boundaries and quite literally ‘Create More’.
Take Miss Led, an artist and illustrator based in East London who’s known for obsessively detailed and lushly rendered pieces across a wide range of media and scale including paper, canvas, murals, installation and digital.
“Recently I’ve been working more with Wacom tablets from scratch, and it has this much more finished feel to it,” she explains. “The tool allows me to take more chances to be more experimental. Because the element of risk is gone on the tablet, it helps with the momentum, it keeps me excited and motivates me.”
“When using the Intuos Pro, I swapped the nibs straight away: it just feels natural and organic, and it is. Drawing on Intuos Pro has this special texture to it.”
Accurate and precise
She’s not alone in her love for the Intuos Pro. The most popular model in the Wacom range, this clever pen tablet offers the accuracy, precision, and comfort of a traditional pen or brush.
It provides 2,048 levels of pen pressure sensitivity, recognises pen tilt, supports multi-touch gestures and features customisable ExpressKeys to give quick access to shortcuts, so you can work seamlessly and your art can flow freely.
And that’s not all. From now until December 31, anyone who buys an Intuos Pro will get full access to a value pack that includes a free one year pro membership to AutoDesk Sketchbook, a 30-day membership to online video training from lynda.com, and a free software package (Perfect Effects 9 Premium) from on1.
Want to improve your technique and boost your artistic career? By taking advantage of the great tutorials, resources and inspiration to be had at the Create More website, and harnessing the power and versatility of the Wacom Intuos Pro pen tablet, there’ll be no stopping you!
