Hello,

I have a genius tablet since october, I got used to make lines or coloring with it on SAI but astill have a HUGE problem... I can't get used to digital work surface. My computer screen is a 15" and I canot do big project with detailed stuff because the layer size is a bothering me.

Does anybody here can give me some tips to overtake that thing ^^

Put a piece of paper on top. That will get you used to the surface.

Just raise the resolution. I work at around 2000*1000 pixels(varies a lot though), with a resolution of 100-250.

Like Puppy Dangerous said the zoom function is your friend. Work with a larger canvas. I have an Intuous 3 tablet with touch strips which I have set to the zoom function so I can zoom in and out of the image while I'm drawing. You can do the same with hot keys.

You can't just make your canvas larger?

I do big canvasses, zoom out so I can see the whole page to do my layout/rough then zoom in to do details. Digital art shouldn't be subject to size restraints except the limit your computer can handle without slowing down.

ok thanks for the tip . In fact I'm working on 2000x1024 canvas, I guess it is not yet big enough next time I'll try a 5000xsomething one ^^
