I've just ordered the Cintiq 12WX
, a 12.1" pressure-sensitive tablet that also includes a screen so that you can see what you're working on. I think it's brilliant. It will probably be even more useful than the Lenovo X61 Tablet PC--the other gadget I was considering getting with the gadget fund I'd saved up.
I hope it will arrive in time for the four-day weekend we've got coming up. I'd love to use it to sketch my presentations, and W- will certainly enjoy using it to retouch photos.
I like this feeling. I knew I'd be in the market for some kind of drawing thing, so I started saving a few months ago. After I gave my Nintendo DS to my mom, I needed another drawing tool, and it was nice to know what I wanted AND know that I could freely get it.
More sketches to come!
