Digital Aquariums Intuos 2 Digital Workshop Guide for Novice Users About Digital Illustration with the Wacom Tablet
When grouped together with the Wacom Tablet, Photoshop can be used as a powerful tool for creating professional illustrations. The pressure sensitive tip along with the maneuverability of the pen let you create nice fluid brush strokes. The wacom tablet will let you increase your speed and accuracy to get the job done on time.


Illustration Due to the amazing pressure sensitivity that the Wacom Intuos 2 lets you exercise, it presents itself as the perfect tool for digital illustration. Whether its control over color intensity, brush size, shading intensity, or wrist control; the wacom tablet gives you complete control over the look of your illustrations that a mouse can never attain. This tutorial will demonstrate how to take a real life sketch or drawing and mold it into a finished masterpiece.
Intuos 2 Digital Illustration Workshop Wacom Pen The picture on the right refers to the wacom pen itself. The top button functions as an eraser in Photoshop. By default, button 1 is set up as right click, and button 2 is set up as double click for convenience. You can go in the system preferences anytime to change the button settings, tilt sensitivity, and pressure sensitivity on the pen itself. System Preferences Eraser Button 2: Double Click Button 1: Right Click
1. Once in the setup, you can adjust how much tilt the pen will detect for wrist comfort and better maneuverability. 2. The tip feel field adjusts how hard you have to press to get the maxi- mum pressure of the pen. You can set this really sensitive so that you achieve maximum pressure by merely tapping the tablet with little force. This will be very important when it comes to illustrating lines, applying shading, and coloring. 3. The button configuration can be set to any keyboard stroke shortcut or any button on the mouse.

Wacom Tablet Setup

Intuos 2 Digital Illustration Workshop Scanning the Original Drawing and DPI You will first scan in an outline drawing that contains no color. The drawing should mainly consist of outlines and some detail since the coloring and shading will be made up in Photoshop later. The drawing should be scanned in at a dpi of 300. This is so that you have more pixels to work with when using the pressure sensitivity of the wacom pen. A screen resolution of 72 dpi can be used, but this dpi allows for less detail and freedom in brush work. In this case we will use a dpi of 300. Basics of Setting Up Canvas Size Now that you have your drawing make sure you have the canvas set up to your liking so that all of your content fits accordingly. The scan of your drawing should not restrict you; feel free to extend or minimize your canvas so that you can add more elements or crop out unwanted space. Once you have attained the pictorial field that you feel comfortable with you can proceed with your next step. You can always go back and change the canvas size at any time, if the composition is not going as planned. There are no set guidelines when creating illustrations. Go with what your eyes sees fit. Setting Up the Layers Setting up the appropriate layers is vital and can be confusing but it pays off in the end. The scanned drawing is already set as the base layer. We will now add one layer named OUTLINES. This layer will go on top of the base layer. This layer will be used to redraw the outlines and contour lines. Another layer will be added and it will be called COLOR. This layer will be the layer that you apply all the color to. We now have a layer set up for our outlines and one for our color. Make sure that the outline layer is located on top of the color layer, otherwise the lines will not be visible when coloring over them. A note about any additional layers: there may be times you want to add something new into you illustration, but you dont necessarily want it on the same layer; nevertheless, you can create a totally new layer to isolate and work on the new elements with no conflict.

Intuos 2 Digital Illustration Workshop Line Work & Brush Setup This step is optional if your scanned drawings line work is finished and clean. The brush type, brush size, and hardness of the brush will determine how your drawing will look. In this example we are going to use a brush with hardness of 100 for nice sharp outlines. The size of the brush can always vary. The wacom pen is set up so that the maximum pressure applied is equal to the brush size. If you set the brush size to 50 pixels and apply strong pressure to the pen than you will get a line with a weight of 50 pixels. If you apply minimal pressure it will give you a line thickness equivalent to the pressure applied.
In this step you are going to basically replace your sketchy rough lines with more define lines. It is very important that you remember to draw these lines on the OUTLINES layer so that it is isolated from the background layer. The outcome will produce a drawing that is ready to be colored in. A note before you start coloring as well: make sure you close all of your outlines so that coloring in shapes will be easier.
Coloring Now that the outlines are well established, it is time to go ahead and start laying down some base colors. Now keep in mind that there are many different ways of coloring a subject and this is just one of them. Make sure you are on the COLOR layer for this step. Apply a base color for each object in your composition.
Intuos 2 Digital Illustration Workshop Isolating Objects and Layers by Color When all the base colors are established, you can isolate each shape accordingly so that it will not interfere with other objects when you are working with them. You isolate these shapes by using the magic wand tool to select each base color and copy and past them. This will make each object its own layer. This is helpful when you want to finely color the bull without accidentally coloring the sky or ground. There is nothing worse than accidentally painting over a finely colored and shaded character with a solid color, especially when you dont notice in time and it is too late to undo it with buttons control+z.
Shading and Lighting Now that we have the base colors and different layers set up, we can go in and individually fine tune each individual model. You can add in color on top of the base color as necessary for different areas of your subject (hair on head, nails on fingers, etc). The next step will involve using the dodge and burn tools demonstrate lighting. This will really bring out your subjects and give them depth. The dodge and burn tool have three different modes that give off different effects. The dodge tool adds light and the burn tool adds shade.
Note About Textures If you want to give your illustrations another level of depth you can also add textures to your illustrations. This can be done by taking texture pictures and placing them accordingly into certain areas of your illustrations. Playing with layer properties and transparencies will give you variously different effects.


Try moving the screen cursor by lifting the Intuos2 Pen and placing it in a new location on the tablet. The cursor instantly jumps to the new location.
As the pen enters Proximity, the tablet senses the pen above the tablet surface. You do not need to touch the tablet with the pen tip in order to move the screen cursor.
Learning Hint: If you are used to working with a mouse and nd that using a pen is somewhat difcult, try the Eye-Hand Coordination Exercise. Pointing Hint: Pointing is easier when you orient the tablet so the screen cursor follows the same direction as your hand movements on the tablet.


Clicking. To click, tap the tablet once with the tip of the Intuos2 Pen, or press the pen tip on the tablet with enough force to register a click. (With the pen tip, there is no audible click sound.)
Try clicking on a folder icon by moving the screen cursor over the icon and pressing down on the pen tip. The icon should highlight when you press.
Double Clicking. To double-click, quickly tap the tablet twice in the same place with the pen tip. This is like clicking twice with a mouse button. You can also double-click by pressing the upper side switchthis is the preferred method of double-clicking with a pen.
Try both ways of double-clicking on a folder icon to open it. First use your pen tip to do this, then use the upper side switch.


The standard Intuos2 Pen is equipped with a DuoSwitch. This switch has two programmable functions that can be selected by rocking the switch in either direction. You can use the DuoSwitch whenever the pen tip is in Proximity of the tablet. You do not have to touch the pen tip to the tablet in order to use the switch.
The upper switch position is set to left double-click by default. Windows Hint: Use right-click to bring up application-specic or icon-specic menus. Double-Click Hint: Press the upper side switch to double-click. This is easier than tapping twice with the pen tip.
The lower switch position is set for a right-click by default.
Important: The DuoSwitch on the Grip Pen can be removed if you do not need the switch functionality. See DuoSwitch Removal and Installation for more information.
To assign new switch functions, refer to Customizing Tool Buttons.


Dragging is used to select and move objects on the screen. To drag, rst point to an object. Then press the Intuos2 Pen to the tablet and slide it across the tablet. The selected object will move across the screen. To select text, move the screen cursor to the beginning of a text line, then drag the Intuos2 Pen across the tablet until the text is highlighted. First, try moving an icon on the screen. Then, within a document, select some text by pressing and dragging the pen tip across the text.


The Intuos2 Airbrush is similar to the Intuos2 Pen, but also includes a ngerwheel for an additional degree of control. With proper software support, you can simulate realistic airbrushing. For example, tilting the Intuos2 Airbrush can cause the spray pattern to elongate and feather out. Rolling the ngerwheel can adjust the spray intensity, and pressure on the tip can control the brush size. Pointing, Clicking, Erasing, and Proximity are similar to the pen. For additional information, refer to Holding the Airbrush and Using the Pen.
Important: When the airbrush is not in use, place it in the Intuos2 pen stand or lay it at on your desk. To maintain the sensitivity of your airbrush tip, do not store the airbrush in a container where it will rest on its tip. Leaving an Intuos2 tool on the tablet may interfere with screen cursor positioning when using other pointing devices.


Hold the airbrush with your thumb and middle nger. The ngerwheel should be in a convenient location for you to roll it with your index nger. Tilt the airbrush to nd a comfortable position that allows you to paint and draw with pressure-sensitivity.
The side switch is set for a right-click by default.
Roll the ngerwheel backwards to increase ink ow or brush size, and forward to reduce it. Your index nger should operate the wheel independently of the pressure you apply to the tip.
To customize the ngerwheel, see Airbrush Settings. Visit Wacoms web site to learn which applications currently support the airbrush ngerwheel. See Product Information.


The Intuos2 2D Mouse is cordless, batteryless, and works on any Intuos2 tablet. By moving the 2D Mouse across the tablets active area, you can position the screen cursor like you do with a regular mouse (MOUSE MODE). The buttons are programmable, and the integrated ngerwheel is both a programmable middle button and a rolling wheel that you can use for scrolling. By choosing PEN MODE in the MAPPING/SPEED tab, you can position and navigate the screen cursor like you do with the Intuos2 Pen.

Integrated middle button and ngerwheel. By default, the button function is set to MIDDLE CLICK and the ngerwheel is set to SCROLL 3 lines per wheel notch within the active window of supporting applications.
Important: When the 2D Mouse is not in use, place it on your desk. Leaving an Intuos2 tool on the tablet may interfere with screen cursor positioning when using other pointing devices.
The right button is set to a RIGHT CLICK by default. The left button is set to LEFT CLICK by default. Hint: For MS Ofce applications that support a wheel mouse, press the CTRL key and move the ngerwheel to zoom in and out. To learn how to program buttons, see Customizing the 2D Mouse.


The Intuos2 4D Mouse is a cordless, batteryless mouse that works on any Intuos2 tablet. By default, you can position the screen cursor like you do with a regular mouse (MOUSE MODE). By choosing PEN MODE in the MAPPING/SPEED tab, you can position and navigate the screen cursor like you do with the Intuos2 Pen. The integrated ngerwheel is both a programmable middle button and a self-centering wheel that can be used for scrolling. By default, the ngerwheel emulates the Microsoft IntelliMouse. The 4D Mouse also supports axial rotation. In applications that support device rotation, simply turn the 4D Mouse on the tablet to control the rotation parameter.
The rear buttons are set to left double-click by default.
The right button is set to right-click by default.
Important: When the 4D Mouse is not in use, place it on your desk. Leaving an Intuos2 tool on the tablet may interfere with screen cursor positioning when using other pointing devices.
By default, the ngerwheel is set to perform a middle-click when pressed. When rolled forward or backward, the ngerwheel is set for scrolling functionality in supporting applications.
The left button is set to left-click by default.
To learn how to program buttons, see Customizing the 4D Mouse and Lens Cursor.


To use the ngerwheel, place your hand on the 2D Mouse or 4D Mouse with your index nger on the wheel.
Button function. To use the button function, press down on the wheel to perform a button click. Scrolling. The ngerwheel will control scrolling; move the ngerwheel forward to scroll up, and back to scroll down. For the 2D Mouse, the ngerwheel is set to scroll 3 lines for each notch of wheel movement in applications that support the Microsoft IntelliMouse wheel. For the 4D Mouse, the ngerwheel emulates the roller on the Microsoft IntelliMouse; moving the ngerwheel scrolls through documents in applications that support the IntelliMouse and scrolling stops when you release the ngerwheel. (When you release the ngerwheel on the 4D Mouse it will spring back to the neutral position, leaving the scrolled list at the position you have scrolled to.) For applications that have built-in support for the ngerwheel, you can set the ngerwheel for application-dened functionality; it will then function according to how each specic application supports the ngerwheel.

Refer to Customizing the 4D Mouse and Lens Cursor for information on programming the Lens Cursor buttons.


Keep your Intuos2 tools and tablet surface clean. Dust and dirt particles can stick to your Intuos2 tools and cause wear to the tablet surface. Regular cleaning with a soft, damp cloth will help prolong the life of your tablet surface and Intuos2 tools. You can also use a very mild soap diluted with water. Do not use volatile liquids, such as paint thinner or benzene, because they may damage the plastic case. Keep your tablet and tools in a clean, dry place and avoid extremes in temperature. Room temperature is best. Also, your Intuos2 tools and tablet are not made to come apart. Except where specically indicated for the Grip Pen DuoSwitch removal and replacement, twisting the pen case can break the pen. Taking apart the product will void your warranty.

The tilt display graphically shows the reported tilt angle of your pen or airbrush. Place your pen or airbrush vertically on the tablet, and tilt it from side to side and forward and backward. The graphic lever moves to indicate the amount and direction of tilt reported to the application. Note: Tilt is direction-sensitive and can be used in some applications to control brush orientation.
Visit Wacoms web site for a list of applications that currently support tilt. See Product Information.


Customizing your Wacom input tool is easy. First open the Wacom control panel using the tool you wish to customize. The tool will be selected in the TOOL LIST, and the appropriate tabs will be displayed. Select a tab and change settings using the available options. To customize settings for a different tool, select it from the TOOL LIST by clicking on its icon.

Roll the ngerwheel forward to scroll up, and back to scroll down. Sets the ngerwheel to scroll one screen for each notch of ngerwheel movement.


You may wish to have different tool settings for a particular application. The APPLICATION LIST lets you customize your Intuos2 tablet and tool settings for individual applications.
The APPLICATION LIST displays icons for applications with customized settings. The TOOL LIST displays icons for tools that are customized for the above selected application.
Tab settings apply only to the selected tool and application. Your current selections are highlighted. Wedges emphasize the relationship between tab settings and the selected tool and application.


If application-specic settings have not been created, a single icon labeled ALL APPLICATIONS is displayed in the APPLICATION LIST, and the tool settings displayed in the tabs are applied to all applications. When a second application is added to the APPLICATION LIST, the ALL APPLICATIONS icon changes to ALL OTHER APPS, and a new icon is displayed for the new application settings. If you select the ALL OTHER APPS icon and make changes to the tab settings, your changes will apply to all applications except the specic one(s) you have added to the list. If you select the icon for a specic application and make changes to the tab settings, your changes will apply to only that application. When ALL APPLICATIONS or ALL OTHER APPS is selected in the APPLICATION LIST, the TOOL LIST displays icons for all Intuos2 tools that have been added to the tool list. When an icon for a specic application is selected from the APPLICATION LIST, the TOOL LIST only displays the Intuos2 tools that have been added for the selected application. When you create an application-specic setting, you are, in a sense, creating a separate TOOL LIST for the application.


To create an application-specic setting, click on the ADD APPLICATION TO LIST. button or select APPLICATIONS FOR CUSTOM SETTINGS. from the ADD pull-down menu. The ADD APPLICATION FOR CUSTOM SETTINGS dialog box appears.
Select an application to add to the APPLICATION LIST. Only applications that are currently running and that have not previously been added to the APPLICATION LIST are displayed.

You can use advanced features to further customize your Intuos2 Professional Graphics Tablet for the way you like to work. ADVANCED TIP PRESSURE SETTINGS ADVANCED ERASER PRESSURE SETTINGS COPYING SETTINGS USING DUALTRACK ADVANCED MAPPING
To customize advanced tip pressure settings, from the TIP FEEL tab select MORE OPTIONS. The advanced options enable you to change the click pressure and pressure curve settings independently. (In the basic options display, these settings are adjusted simultaneously with the TIP PRESSURE FEEL slider.)
Important: The TIP PRESSURE FEEL slider overrides the advanced pressure settings. If you customize advanced settings, then drag the TIP PRESSURE FEEL slider, your advanced settings will be removed.
Use these controls to manually change the pressure curve shape. Toggles to the basic options display.
After you set advanced settings, a checkmark appears.
Test the results of your changes before you apply them.
Use this area to automatically set the maximum amount of force to use when drawing.
The pressure curve graphically displays the relationship between force applied to your tool and pressure reported to an application.


The click force setting adjusts the amount of force required to generate a button click.
The CLICK FORCE bar graphically displays the force level at which a click occurs.
Enter a value from 1 to 50% or drag the CLICK FORCE bar to set the force at which a click occurs.
Note: For optimal performance in graphics applications, set the click force and minimum tip force to the same value.
Changing the shape of the pressure curve will change the feel of the pen tip. A pressure curve that increases quickly makes the tip feel more sensitive to changes in force. The control points at each end of the pressure curve set the minimum and maximum amount of force your pen or airbrush will respond to. If you have a soft touch and want to achieve full pressure without having to apply full force to your pen, decrease the maximum force level. You can apply less force to your pen and still have the effects of full pressure. The default for maximum force is 100%.

2. Select the tablet mapping to dene. The mapping numbers are displayed in the top left corner of each tablet area graphic. If multiple tablet mappings have been dened, click inside the tablet area you want to select or click on the SELECT MAP. button and type the number of the mapping you want to select.
3. Dene the size of the tablet area by dragging the handles of the selected tablet area. Then click and drag the tablet area to the desired position. For more precise control in selecting the tablet area, click the SET TABLET. button to access the Portion of Tablet dialog box. There, you can dene the tablet area in a variety of ways. 4. From the ASPECT pull-down menu, select an option. These options work similarly to normal mapping. If you choose PROPORTIONAL or TO FIT, you can set an exact scale factor.
Proportional. Maintains the correct vertical and horizontal proportions. However, the drawing may display larger or smaller on the screen. To set the scale, click the SCALE. button. In the SET SCALE FACTOR dialog box, enter a value to dene the tablet to screen ratio. For example, a scale factor of 2 will make two inches on the tablet equal to one inch on the screen.
To Fit. Maps the selected tablet area to the selected screen area. The scale and the vertical and horizontal proportions are not maintained. To set the scale, click the SCALE. button. In the SET SCALE FACTOR dialog box, enter values to dene the tablet to screen ratios for the x and y axes. The ratio between x- and y-scale factor indicates how much a traced image will be distorted by the mapping relationship between tablet and screen. For example, an x-scale factor of 2 makes two inches on the tablets x axis equal to one inch on the screens x axis. A y-scale factor of 3 makes three inches on the tablets y axis equal to one inch on the screens y axis. Mouse Mode. Sets the area to position the screen cursor in Mouse Mode.
5. Dene the size of the display area by dragging the handles of the selected display area. Then click and drag the display area to the desired position. For more precise control in selecting the display area, click the SET DISPLAY. button to access the Portion of Display dialog box. There, you can dene the display area in a variety of ways. 6. To create additional tablet mappings, click on the ADD MAPPING button. A new mapping is created with the entire tablet area mapped to the entire display area. Repeat the above steps to size and position the tablet and display areas for each mapping you add. If you dene overlapping tablet areas, the tablet area with a lower number will always be above (in front of) the areas with a higher number and will have precedence for positioning the pointer on the screen. Use the BRING TO FRONT and SEND TO REAR buttons to change the relative positions of the maps. For example, if you have created multiple mappings, SEND TO REAR will move a selected mapping to the bottom of the stack.
