In figure drawing today (in class posting this) we headed over to the Cintiq Lab. Gotta say, if I had 2 grand to blow... I'd blow it on a Cintiq. Everything is so fast.
Also interesting to sketch right on it, holding the tablet like a pad. Just pretty damn cool.
Expect lots of drawings soon. Just filled my first sketchbook, but I haven't got my new scanner up and working yet, keep getting distracting by True Blood.
