Hi Everyone. I set up a Patreon creator page. I’ll post finished art, sketches, process illustrations and info on how I got from rough to finished work. I’m sure it will be an interesting and exciting endeavor. Please check out my Patreon page. It’s super early in the process, but more will be added soon. Thanks!

New Toy: Sprung for a Wacom Cintiq 16HD

Wacom Cintiq 16

Some years ago, I owned a Wacom Cintiq 13HD. I liked having a pen display quite a bit. Not having the hand-eye coordination issues of drawing on a tablet like my Wacom Intuos Pro and having to look at a separate screen was great. However, I didn’t feel like I had enough room on the 13″ display.

A few weeks ago, I visited the Wacom Discovery Center in Portland and got to play around with all of Wacom’s current products. I really liked the massive Wacom Cintiq Pro 32″ and 24″ but they’re a little overkill for me right now. So, instead, I bought the 16″ Cintiq that Wacom released recently. It lacks touch controls and doesn’t come with the Express Key Remote (although they are compatible), but it’s entry level price is pretty great by comparison to the larger tablets. Wacom’s new Pro Pen 2 with over 8000 pressure levels is included, however. The display connects with a 3-in-1 cable, so you need an HDMI port and a USB port to connect it to your computer. I use a late 2013 MacBook Pro, so I have these conveniently located on the right side.

Barbarian Character for an old D&D Game. Affectionately named Groo after Sergio Aragone’s Comic Series.

I’ll post a more comprehensive review in the near future. For now, enjoy this little clumsy doodle that I drew on my old 13″ Cintiq.
