I am a BitNami contributor, webmaster, graphic designer, 2D/3D graphic artist (specialized in game artwork), and somehow a jack of all trades, hope to be of help here.

comment What image tablet can you recommend on a budget?
I think Wacom 3 had a more crystal like surface, (pen tip is more slippy there) , so you might prefer to purchase a low cost Intuos 3 at Amazon. Important : You can loose accuracy, in the wacom strokes once added a filter. I don't have these problems as I apply soft pressure when I draw, so I use Intuos4 as my tablet, not Intuos 3. Might be your case, but I don't know. The scratches can appear with soft pressure, though.

comment What image tablet can you recommend on a budget?
There is actually several ways.. Use a screen protector, there were two good brands for these, Nushield and ..I don't remember the other. Issue is you will loose certain control and accuracy. Also you could damage the wacom tablet. I purchased from NuSheild (arrived fast) a pair of filters, the ant glare and another one. Never actually applied any. As realized that it all depends on how you draw. Just press not so firmly. Other solution is purchase a felt like soft pen tip, so the tip wont get erased, as usual (even if you are very careful), but neither the tablet surface damaged.

comment What Windows-based tools do you use to create icons?
Gimp allows saving as ico...I am neither big fan of the UI, but the thing is it really has quite some advanced features. Even if not chosen as primary editor, I'd advice to have it installed. As a better GUI, yes, Paint.net, but Gimp has a lot of functionality. IcoFX is not freeware anymore, is 59 bucks shareware. Yet though, freeware previous versions are pretty usable. I'd buy it (even only for mac 512x512 res.), is quite a pro tool for the icon features support. But if not willing to use money here, for ico stuff I'd choose maybe Gimp, at least for exporting.(you can do the sizes as layers)

comment Convert a line drawing from raster to vector
Glad that it helped :) ; I also draw, and know the pains when inking with digital tablets... :) One note... When I mentioned Illustrator's averaging, was refering to going to preferences, and setting there how fine/smooth would be that stroke guessing. (As I mentioned, MyPaint, (raster, non vectorial app), has a lot more settings for that)
