Well, I took the plunge late last night and ordered a Surface Pro 3, a tablet rated very highly for drawing. I'm really hoping that it helps me get back into the habit. The trick will be that it is a transition to digital drawing, something I still only have limited experience with. And that's entirely on me; some very nice people have lent me drawing tablets over the years, but I've always had a bad time with the disconnect between looking at a screen and not the pen. However, with a tablet like this, that problem should be gone.
I'm excited! I am also a bit nervous, because I know the "buy something expensive and you will SURELY use it" line of reasoning does not necessarily work. (The elliptical behind me is proof of that...)
Still, the convenience of the tablet should really help, as sometimes the stupidest reasons are what stop me from drawing. Having it immediately there, already digital, should really help--IF I can learn to get used to the feeling.
So, hey, here's hoping, right?
