That's just plain awesome, Gail!  Does Mothra have those little twins rooting for her in the game?

Another benefit may be just in drawing in general.  I remember all those exercises back in high school from Drawing on the Right-Side of the Brain where you draw without looking at the paper's surface to practice following contours.  It seems like tablet-art is related to that.

Our nephew, 8, stays with us on weekends.  He has a Bamboo Fun at home, but lately has been using ArtRage with my Intuos 3 here at our place.  He loves it. He's also an avid gamer (and marathon runner - he gets outside) mainly loving the Lego series of games. Using the tablet wasn't even something he blinked at.  He likes to use the undo and redo keys to make "animation".
