I'm struggling to decide wether or not to get this, it seems to be the best choice but I can't find any confirmed works or even videos on youtube showing some great work with the [B]Wacom Bamboo Pen[/B], the smaller Wacom tablet.
If you have one and have some decent pieces made with it can you please post it to help me judge if it's going to be good or not?
It's not the tablet that's going to make the drawings/paintings/etc. It's the user, the tablet only provides user/computer interaction and has an array of features.
The Wacom Bamboo is good to do stuff once in a while, if you're going for hardcore painting go for the Intuos and if you have the money to spend get the Cintiq.
About the size, it's a matter of getting used to it, and you have to do that with every tablet.
Yeah, of course it's up to the artist but I just wanted to see if it could produce high quality things or if it was going to be limited.
I don't mean high-quality as in GOOD art, I mean high-quality as in the actual lines and things it produces etc.
Just get it. You won't regret a thing.
I did that with a bamboo fun which is a step below i think from the bamboo pen
I have a Bamboo Pen & Touch and I love it.
gonna point out my old thread for sake of anyone's reference.
Also, if you're seriously considering doing art, I'd take a step up and just do the bamboo, or find a small intuos 3 for sale on ebay. The 'bamboo fun' was designed more along the lines for younger users and those who only want to tinker a bit. The 'bamboo pen and touch' is pretty good now, though I still hear reports of it having issues with really fast strokes making 'stair-stepping' zig-zag lines, albeit very minorly.

Gotta have to disagree with the younger users part. It's a cheap tablet and it's great for it's price, it's supposed to be a starting tablet and it's good for all kinds of art. The keyword here is price.
If, eventually, you think you do need a bigger tablet, better and with more features, then move to the Intuos, but if you're not sure about art or are afraid of getting a "big" tablet as in great, get the Bamboo.
I have no intentions of buying an Intuos soon, I will eventually buy one, but not this early because the Bamboo does it for me. And I'm an art student going for game/movie concept art and matte painting.
That's the one I got, here are some works:
Sometimes I do wish I had more room though.
I've owned both and i'd say that a bamboo it's just fine.I currently have a bamboo pen and i believe the quality in my paintings haven't dropped or anything. I'm prone to breaking and rough handling my tablets so the Bamboo is perfect for me since it'd be easier to replace.
I don't miss the extra features which came from the Inutos3 (though the little touch zoom was handy) and i haven't really felt a difference pressure sensitivity wise. Personally i would say that the only product that would drastically affect the quality would be the Cintiq (drools); however, it is again just a tool to make the process faster. Also size wise i would also go for a smaller tablet, it's neater and is less troublesome to carry around. Plus the larger tablets sure burn a hole in one's wallet :S.
Thus, i would say just buy the Bamboo pen and touch (I only have the bamboo pen at the moment *shrugs*. Oh! You also get this really cool program with the bamboo series: the bamboo dock. It's full of games and other applications for the tablet.
Anyways here are some examples of my work with an intuos3 and then the bamboo:
I am so sorry for the huge image embedding... I have no idea how to make it smaller and for the huge wall of text. I hope you find the comparison useful although time and skill improvement also plays a role in this aswell.
... Can you get banned for huge embedding? (If so, Sorry DX)
Wow, you are really good at faces.
