My new Intuos3 finally arrived and it’s massive. I’m actually shocked by how large it is. It’s the size of a 19″ widescreen monitor! Sadly, it doesn’t have a built-in monitor, because those are like $2000, but nonetheless, it’s lovely.
Now I just gotta get used to the damned thing. My previous one had half as many levels of pressure, and was only a quarter of the size.
Anyway, here’s a doodle, with a Photochopped backgroun thrown in:
Man, those Cintiq‘s are pretty. It’s too bad the cheapest one costs as much as the entire computer that I do my art on!
Maybe I’ll look into getting one of the smaller, non-screened ones. I have one of the old Graphire tablets, and it’s served me well, but the drawing surface is pretty small, and the resolution isn’t the best.
I’m going to start myself an Intuos fund, and put all my commission-money into it until I have a new one!
The journey begins!
