Tablet And Adobe Illustrator

Recommended Posts

Guest The_R

Hi everyone

 

Can anybody tell me if (and how) Adobe Illustrator can work together with a tablet/digitizer.

 

I know i can use the digitizer pen as a point'n'click device in illustrator, but how about drawing in Illustrator (i'm talking line drawings here, not artistic stuff). Can Illustrator interpret pressures and how?

 

If it's possible, does anyone have any links to tutorials?

 

If not, what program is most suitable for sketching with a tablet? (I prefer to work with vectors, and therefore I've been using illustrator a lot..)

It isn't the best for that. The only time I'll use a tablet with illustrator is if I want to do some really quick short freeform strokes like hair, grass, etc (but still need them as vector art). Just use the pencil tool or paintbrus and draw them in. You'll have to experiment a little to get the smoothing accuracy correct. The tablets are more useful in photoshop, sketchbook pro, painter, etc.
