Video: Painting on the Cintiq

I threw together a litte video for you guys, to give you an idea of my process and what it's like to paint with the Cintiq.

I was trying to keep low in my room, to avoid being called a dork, so I probably sound like I'm losing my voice, but what the hell. Enjoy.

Hallo Rahll,
first..nice work! yesterday I ordered the cintiq by amazon :D ...
before that I had a Intuos 4. my question is, should I buy a protection film
against the scratches? Because after one year of working with the intuos
the top is full of that and I donīt want this on my cintiq too.
Are there scratches on your cintiq at all?

It's an iffy subject. I know some people that somehow manage to get a bunch of scratches on their Cintiqs, maybe from transport, or wrist watches, or just being careless. I've had mine for almost 3 and a half years, I use it nearly daily, and I don't have a single scratch on it.

If you're worried about it, and you feel you might scratch it, protect your investment and get the film for it for a few extra bucks. It's worth it over a lot of annoyance later. Just make sure you read reviews and get a good one.

Hey Rahill, In the video are you using the tablet as your primary monitor? I currently have one and i use it as a secondary monitor as i only want to use it when im doing art work and not for everything else. Is there a way of setting it as primary monitor for just photoshop?

I use it as a secondary, I just drag the entire Photoshop application onto the screen.

Awww I just got the Cintiq a few weeks ago its incredible, I love your style of painting and all your work is amazing. This video really helped me in my decision to go out and buy the cintiq, yeah its quite a wad of cash but its definitely worth it! Sadly I havent really gotten enough time to do anything great on it yet :( I saw that you are currently in school, Im getting ready to attend a summer program at Parsons design school NY so I was wandering if you could help me again with any tips or advice???
Thanks!

Hi there!

I saw your video a lot before seeing your art (which is great, however...)... and trying to figure out if that was a good thing to buy and go for it...

Now I just got it... it came a few days ago... and I have to say that it's just great... I've worked with an old trust tablet which is really really bad but you still can draw with it...

The Cintiq is way bigger, better and the screen is also really nice... I don't see any differences between my work on the Cintiq and the same work on my monitor...
so I quite don't understand what's the man just below me (named molesgallus) saying... but well, it's his opinion...

Sooo... thanks for your work (which is really inspirating and amazing to see) and your Cintiq review because I've learned so much on it...

Greets,
The G

Hi,
I have had the cintiq 12wx for a couple of days now. I'm not impressed. The screen is horrible, really horrible. The colours are weak and the contrast is shit. I'm going to do a review in my journal. But, i cant see any reason(apart from the sliders/buttons) as to how this is better than a 1000$ tablet pc.
