I'm going to be buying a new drawing tablet next month, and I'd like to get the cheaper Intuos Pen, but I'm wondering if I should save up and buy the Intuos Pen and Touch in medium size instead.

I really would just like to know if size really matters when it comes down to it, because it's an extra hundred and twenty or so for the bigger one, so if I can save money, I'd like to.

When I draw on paper, I used to like drawing on really big sketch paper, but as I've gotten older, I prefer smaller paper since I don't put much into the backgrounds or anything.

Also, I'll be using SAI, if that helps at all.

I really used to draw a lot, like, every day, for hours.
And now, I've gotten a lot better, even though I'm nowhere near close to where I'd like to be in terms of skill- but, I want to draw again, and paint, and do ceramics.
But I have no patience, and it seems all my art lately just.... sucks, and it discourages me from continuing.
I always get so upset, and I just feel like a failure, and, although I show my art to my family and hubby, they're obviously not impressed. They always say "cool" or "oh, that's good"
and that's it.

I mean, I know they're not artists, so they can't really give me critique, but just.. I want something more.
Like, tell me HOW I'm good- what looks good, at least.
They barely glance at it, and I just feel so.. terrible.

I typically feel like giving up on art, because it doesn't make me happy anymore.
I do a lot more role playing than art now, and I'm just losing interest in everything. Even food, if you can believe it.

Although the food thing isn't that bad.

so anyway... how's everyone else doing?
