I got a cintiq because it lets you draw faster, which is good because I'm into animation. I haven't found that it has made my drawing better, but it has made drawing easier.hayderade wrote:Did you find it made drawing easier and more difficult content(on paper) easier?
In standard paper based drawing i make decentish pictures but i always see people post awesome stuff like yours and think what if i had a cintiq haha.
Thoughts on them?
As I said, I still look at the monitor 80% of the time, and I used a bamboo before that so the transfer from physical to digital had already been learned before I got it. Now I don't need the screen, it's just a convenience.
Trying not to sound like a know it all, but I think art is more a matter of seeing if something is good or not, rather than being able to draw it good. If you draw something, but then as you're drawing you see where you're doing things poorly you can just keep doing it again until it's right. That's the best thing about digital, ctrl + z.
I think being constantly unhappy with your own ability is important for that.
