I could not wait to receive my very own Wacom Art Pen to use with my Wacom Intuos 4 Tablet!
I had the opportunity to use the pen when I attended the HOW Design Conference in Denver and LOVED it!
As a digital artist, graphic and web designer with a foundation in traditional art- this pen provides me the best of both worlds- traditional art and digital art. It allows me to work digitally (within Photoshop CS5) with the same results you can expect from traditional media- watercolor, oil paint, etc... I can mix colors with all kinds of brushes and apply a variety of strokes - taking advantage of the pressure sensitive and tilt/bearing of the pen. It is very natural and requires little to no learning curve to use if you are used to painting traditionally and/or have used another Wacom pen.
I just LOVE it and recommend it to anyone working digitally and/or anyone who wishing to use their traditional painting skills in a digital application. I would also be great for students learning painting concepts (with out all the mess of using actual paint). The simulation of the real thing is incredible! Wacom KP701E2 Intuos4 Art Pen with Stand
