I managed to pick up a Cintiq over the X-Mas break. For those of you
that don't know what a Cintiq is..it's basically a Wacom tablet that is
combined with a monitor so you can draw right onto the screen. Yeah
it's hella fancy.
So...I found a guy willing to sell an almost new one for $900. I turned and burned and sold my Wacom tablet and used the money to partially pay for the Cintiq.
Now that my friends is how you Mother F 'n parlay!
I had messed with a Cintiq before but as we all know you really need to spend some quality time with one to really learn the ins and outs of working with one.
I'd say it took me a good three days to get used to using it. I know it would seem like.."dude..it's just like drawing on paper!"
Well it is and and it isn't. It sort of a midway point...That being said...the amount of control is so vastly superior to a Wacom that in the words of Ferris Bueller. "If you have the means I highly recommend it"
I think it will really change your approach to digital art and painting.
Any who. I decided to try and use my normal approach to traditional art and see if I could get the same results with the Cintiq.
In the above pic you can see I started digitally inking a piece I sketched traditionally. I think it's coming along pretty well. I also colored part of it. I think I'm going to just scan in sketches from now on and than ink everything digitally. See how that works and than slowly go all digital.
