I’ve been practising landscapes concepts on my Cintiq. I got it second-hand for a good price. It’s an older generation model, but still works really well! A Cintiq is a drawing tablet with a screen inside. Unlike normal tablets with screens (like ipads and such) it has a pressure and angle sensitive pen. It also detects your pen even when it’s a centimeter above the screen.
I had some free time today to aquint myself with the device, so here’s the first official illustration I’ve done:
It feels a lot more natural drawing on a Cintiq than on a normal tablet. Hope this old Cintiq will last me a while!
Wow, this is stunning. Second-hand or not, that’s clearly a fantastic Cintiq! Glad to see this purchase ended up being well worth it for you so far… 🙂
Thank you Heather! I really recommend it, if ever you see one 2nd hand! I use ctrl+z a lot less with it. Though I loved my ‘normal’ wacom, this feels more natural.
The only problem is if this one breaks how could I afford a new one. These things are crazy expensive. Better start saving D:
