    What do I need to get started? - Illustration
    Hey everyone,

    I like to do illustrations as a hobby and I also would like to dabble in creating graphics/logos for my own company. I'd like to start doing this on my Mac, but I don't know what I would need to get started. Keep in mind, I'm a complete beginner when it comes to digital illustration.

    Is Adobe illustrator the right program? What about a graphics/drawing tablet?

    Any suggestions you have on software or hardware would be great. Thanks!

    Specs:

    Check out iDraw in the App Store if you do not want to get Adobe illustrator.
    Wacom would be what i would look at if you do not have an iPad if you do have an iPad there are Apps for this I just can't recommend one since I have not personally used any.

    hmm.. So which is it? Are you a hobbyist or a beginner and would like to start getting into Digital Illustration. Being a hobbyist means you would already have experience in this field.

    If your a beginner, then what is you experience level with graphics drawing and most importantly, what is your budget?
