Hey guys, can I have some tips?
My Intous 5 stopped working a while ago, and I was thinking about replacing it with a Cintiq, Now, is the 22HD version worth it compared to the 13HD version? It's obviously better regarding everything but I'm afraid it will be painful to move around and it costs twice as much as the 13" one.
Then there's the chinese alternative, the
Huion GT-185HD, almost as big as the 22HD and seems too good to pass up, but well, it's chinese.
I'm not making any money drawing, and I don't want to in the first place, it's just my favorite hobby.
Thanks to everyone that will answer
I have the Cintiq 13HD; works great.
Cant say anything about 22Hd
Would just stay with Wacom rather than going to some other maybe not so reliable ones.
You say your doing it as a hobby, so id say get the 13hd, cuz it'll surely be quality stuff and its not so exspensive as the 22hd. Sure if you have money and willingness go for the 22hd.
I have a Cintiq 13HD. The screen is too small, your arm is covering half the surface at any given time. That's like a pocket size notebook area to work on. I feel claustrophic working on the screen plus the ergonomics are terrible if you have it on your desk, as if sitting in front of a computer wasn't bad enough already.I have the screen unplugged now and just use it as a regular Intuos
not op, but I have a Samsung note 10.1 2014 ed tablet. I am comfortable with it and think I could suffice with the 13 hd cintiq. Either that or the Yiynova 22 V3, but no way would I ever get the larger cintiqs because sadly... I no longer pursue an art career. Since I am in questions with what degree to pursue I picked up the new intuos art tablet today. I might get a cintiq next year.
I just bought a 13HD last week. So far I have mixed feelings on it and I'm currently debating if i should return it or not. The screen size isn't too big of an issue but the ergonomics suck, can't find a comfortable position to use it in for a long period of time.
Sorry, I just find this whole "my hand is in the way" funny as hell. Such a minor problem I can't even bother to make fun of you. Did you forget how it was like to draw on paper or something? Seriously, such a noob complaint.
I've used a regular tablet for 15 years. I find it a far superior way to draw since I have a much better overview of the piece as a whole at any given time. I have such a milage working with a regular tablet that the cintiq offers no added accuracy for me. Basically I feel that the cintiq removes many of the benefits of working with tablets while reintroducing the drawbacks of traditional mediums. Maybe I'll change my opinion when I get my hands on the bigger versions, but I doubt it.
I feel the same for my Samsung note 10.1 2014 tablet. I originally got it for drawing and hated it for a moment because I didn't find the right apps. Now that I found them I am using it as best as I can. I would upgrade to a surface, but I hear alot of people complain about the screen size. maybe it won't bother me. I don't know, but I do have my eyes on the cintiq 13.
