I tested Cintiq 24HD, Cintiq 13HD and now I'm testing Cintiq 22HD for review. Very nice piece of hardware.
I think I want Kingtee 22HDX compare to Cintiq 22HD. I want to surpass Bleedman.
o//////o....it so........ *blush*....i ..t.tink i just fall for Cintiq 22HD....TT^TT
i kind wish they had a screen like tablets to make them easier to work with, maybe i should just a tablet instead..
Did you make that Alien coming out of the wall or did you buy it. If so, where?
Yes, I made it. But it's just a copy of original vacuum print (for Alien Saga from 1997) which I bought few years before.
Do you work in the design industry or is this a hobby?
I am an illustrator - it's my job. But this - sculpting, mold making, replication by resin is my own work, or hobby, as you said.
That is cool.
Is resin easy to work with or would I need Kiln?
I ask as I sculpt and I want to try a different material.
I do not know if I understand word "kiln". For casting you need mold and resin. You sculpt the object. Then you need create a mold (from plaster, but best material is silicon). Two or more parts of a mold, depends on the object. When is a mold put together, you can pour resin, or when is a mold only one half, you can use laminating technique (gelcoat, resin and glass fabric). You can do this in home, without special equipment, but you need use resins like epoxid, polyurethan... Polyester is cheap and easy, but this resin is toxic for styren monomer and odors.
I've been wanting to get my hands on one of these Cintiq but they're really pricey. I still have my Intuos 4 Medium but there's a lot of tiny things I feel that would make my work flow on my projects a lot more streamlined.
This Cintiq is the best from Wacom Cintiq family - my opinion. Size is OK, not big, not small. Cintiq 13HD has nice fine display, but GUI of Photoshop is too small, it's better for programs like ArtRage or Autodesk Sketchbook. Cintiq 24 HD is a very heavy and big - your hand must travel a long way on display. This 22" model is ideal. But yes, you are right, the price is high. In any event, Intuos is more accurate with better response. But if you need a real sketch feeling, then is Cintiq clear choice.
You really like Aliens don't you?
Not only aliens, but yes I have a big replica of alien warrior (Aliens) from Sideshow and Stan Winston studios. It was always my dream to have Alien character.
