Hey Alucard, I'm curious about how your experience has been with the cintiq. Do you see any differences in your work flow? Do you prefer going back and using an Intuos for certain things? I ask because I'm a long time bamboo user looking to upgrade. I've been indecisive for a long time because I feel maybe just a larger drawing area would satisfy me with the Intuos Pro M. But then I think of how much fun drawing is traditionally, so the Cintiq could bring that joy.
Hello~ My experience with the Cintiq so far is excellent! As for work flow, I became faster at accomplishing things because:
(1) I can work with better precision and less zooming-in on my canvas because I literally see where my hand is going.
(2) I can maximize the use of my palm [pisiform bone] and elbow as pivot areas in creating curves and long strokes.
(3) Since I came from using an Intuos 3 [1024 pressure sensitivity levels], using a Cintiq [2048 pressure sensitivity levels] gave me better control at using Maru Pen [Manga Studio type of pen tool]. It lets me do more controlled strokes for consistency and for simulating inconsistency.
I think I’ll never go back to using an Intuos. I’m not saying it’s an inferior model, in my opinion Intuos 3 is actually a very wonderful model! I’ve been on Intuos 3 for 8yrs! I just went on an upgrade and invested on a Cintiq <3
Regarding the fun it could give for emulating the feel of traditional drawing, I don’t know. For me trad is trad and digital is digital, very different feel for each!
Another illustration for Xiphos Games Studio I did some time ago. This is a cropped version of the actual illust~
r u a still virgin??
They had very specific references and detailed descriptions on the appearance of the character. I only had to create studies for the garment and color scheme, although the color scheme is pretty much specified as well~
Still a fun process and creation flow!
Concept illustration. Commissioned work. I included the studies for this illustration.
This is such a fun and wonderful character to draw!
Promo illust I did some time ago for Dr.Sketchy’s PH! And the models were Chai and me!
