>>45413696 Speaking of drawing with a pc, >implying an OS can't be better than another >implying a particular laptop can't be better then another >implying having a laptop that's exactly as big as your graphic tablet isn't infinitely better than having laptop/tablet at different sizes
You can reach a particular city using various vehicles, but that doesn't mean a particular vehicle can't be better than another
>>45413737 > implying an OS can't be better than another Completely insubstantial in reality for digital 2D painting.
> implying a particular laptop can't be better then another If you have anything from the last 5 year that wasn't crap, you probably have enough RAM and processing power and a decent enough screen that you can paint fine.
> implying having a laptop that's exactly as big as your graphic tablet isn't infinitely better than having laptop/tablet at different sizes Yup, that also doesn't matter. You just need a drawing tablet a few times the size of the kind of "features" / strokes that you want to draw, so you don't have to position your hand excessively well initially before making the stroke...
How big your device or display is doesn't matter. You can have a huge drawing tablet or a fairly small one, as long as it's comfortable for the kind of strokes that you want to draw.
>>45413828 >Bullshit, drawing is a creative experience, doing it on a crappy uncomfortable OS will inevitably bring worse results Most of the famous works of art (sculptures, buildings, paintings, whatever) were made with crappy uncomfortable tools.
But fortunately, OSX is a fairly annoying piece of crap AND it makes most artists uncomfortably poorer, so that helps...
>How big your device or display is doesn't matter. As evidenced by OP suggesting a MacBook Pro, it doesn't matter.
This is not exactly a 40" professional high-resolution perfectly color calibrated display... it's a normal consumer display.
Werks fine like other consumer displays. Drawing 2D isn't such a high-requirements affair. You also don't need the best ink, brushes/pens/pencils/... if you do it on paper. You just don't want to use the most broken crap. But most laptops are not broken and rather amazing tools overall, so... that works.
>>45413852 I tried the Surface 3 Pro extensively in the store and the digitizer felt like those shitty as fuck digital signature pads you find at your local bank. >>45413848 would agree with me. Such a shame since I wanted to upgrade from my Surface Pro 1.
>>45413590 Why have your tablet cover your keyboard? Who does this shit. I work with a tablet and Photoshop. You pretty much need a keyboard to use Photoshop shortcuts. Otherwise you'd just spent ages doing simple things.
>>45413933 Completely normal if you actually use it. I've seen way worse. Only idiots think tablets remain the same after using them with regularity, you almost never see them like how they look in promo pics.
>>45415155 not that guy but i have a samsung laptop, 6gb ddr3 and an i5 2410m, nvidia geforce gt 520m, with windows 8 (had same experience with windows 7).
i also have a mac mini with 8gb ram, i5 3210m, with Intel HD graphics and OS X 10.9.5.
Photoshop runs MUCH better on OS X in my experience. the type tool has to load when photoshop opens and it takes maybe a second on OS X, takes at least a minute on windows. when zooming in and out of pages the windows machine will flash as if it cant keep up, while os x is smooth and renders the image great at any size. idk, just my experience.
>>45415265 I equally use W7 and OSX; PS runs so much better on mac it isn't even funny. On W7 it takes even minutes to load big files, also it's slower overall. It's also way more stable, but talking about it, windows version is much better than before since CS6.
