I have some questions about creating and editing digital 'pen & ink' line
drawings?  I have always done line art the traditional way, but would like
to move more into the digital process. I have recently purchased a Wacom
graphics tablet and am wondering what would be the best software to use.  I
have Fractal Paint, but that seems a bit over board for simple line drawing,
and I am getting a bit bogged down in it.  Bascially, I want to be able to
scan in my line drawings and edit them.  C. Sexton mentioned Freehand
Trace....and I am wondering if that would be a good bet in combination with
maybe Corel Draw?  I would appreciate any imput on what works for you.  Am
looking for a push in the right direction.....Thanks.
