Sketching digitally.


  1. Pretty cool! How does the Cintique do on pen calibration? Is the pen point where it is supposed to be on the screen? How about pressure sensitivity? Does the monitor have a higher pixel ration per inch than a standard monitor? Have you spilled ice cream on it yet?

  2. Though I have heard some people gripe about the pen calibration on their Cintiq, I calibrated mine a couple of times to make sure I got it right and it's 100% dead-on for me. I love it.

    Pressure sensitivity is great, I hope to utilize that a bit more after I get more experience on it. Right now, I'm still trying to get used to not drawing on actual paper and having a UNDO option, which is sweet!

    No ice cream on it yet, but I would recommend buying the optional Sneeze Guard.
