Cintiq review!

As you all know, we are using a cintiq since February. Ofcourse you are all dying to know what we think of it? We'll break it down for you: Our cintiq review!


-You have more control over your linework. It's more precise and it works faster.

-You can draw more intuitive like working on paper. And it has different pen points, to compensate the feeling that you're drawing with a pencil on a glass window.

-The screen gets f***g hot! Well, that's a little bit exaggerated, but it sure feels like asphalting a highway on a hot summer's day, and it leaves you with a burning sensation on your face without getting a tan.

-Your workflow changes, because you don't have 'relative' distances anymore. Compared to your wacom tablet, which is proportional to the screen, you can point to any spot on the screen without picking up your pen.

-Righthanded people using the right mouse-click cover the drop down menu with their hand and need to learn left hand typing, because of the keyboard positioned on the left side of the cintiq.

overall: it needs time to relax while sitting behind a cintiq and it literally is a rotatable canvas!

advice: BUY MORE!
