So I’ve been using a Wacom Intuos 2 tablet for years now. I dig it, but I’ve been coveting a Cintiq for almost as many years. I was steeling myself to bite the bullet and shell out for one, but my lovely wife suggested I try out her iPad with a fancy-schmancy stylus instead. This page is the fruit of this experimental union–iPad Air, Wacom Intuos Creative Stylus, and the ProCreate app. Still using Photoshop for cleaning up the scan before and tweaking a few things after painting, and then lettering in Illustrator as always. A bit less convenient having to bounce the file around more, but more versatile, portable, and slightly less expensive than a Cintiq. Seems like a good thing, although after wanting that thing for so long, it’s tough to let go of the dream.
Comic Creators for Freedom is still doing it’s big fundraising drive–donate to them, help fight human trafficking, get a cool wallpaper!
