The Wacom Inkling – Sketch Vectors on Paper!

- September 22, 2011
First off, let me say this: I am not a good sketcher. It has always been on my to-do list to become one though, and I think this might be the gadget to finally make that dream come true. Wacom is about to release its highly anticipated digital drawing tool, the Inkling which lets you draw – on paper – (in multiple layers!) and then import it all into Illustrator to tweak to your heart’s content.
The kit includes a pressure-sensitive pen, and a wireless receiver. The receiver is simply clipped to your sketchbook of choice and records the strokes of the pen and as a digital image. When you want to add a new layer, you just press a button on the receiver. When you’re done, hook the device up to your computer, upload and you’re ready to edit it in any image program. Illustrator seems to be your best bet considering these are vectors you’re working with.
- The included pen has 1024 levels of pressure sensitivity to give your lines an organic weight shift
- Works can be stored as JPEG, BMP, TIFF, PNG, SVG and PDF files
- Retail price of $199
- As of the date of this post, the Inkling is scheduled to be released mid-October, and is available for pre-order on Amazon
As I previously stated, I’m not a good sketcher. So how do I erase??
