This is the first page I’ve penciled using the Wacom Cintiq. After about 4 years of deliberating I finally broke down and spent the money for one. It didn’t hurt that the new 13HD (which is 13.3 inches) fits perfectly on my desk. I always thought the older 12 inch one would be too small a screen. But this..this is perfect.

I doubt I’ll use it for inking, because I’m a pretty firm advocate of things that exist in the physical world. But for pencils and colors, it’s such a time saver. Here’s what the pencils ended up looking like.


I still need to learn a bit more about brushes and just get the feel for it. And lean more about what it can do. But out of the box it’s already so much more natural feeling than the older tablet I had.

Anyway, until next time!
