I’ve been wanting one for years and years and years. So now a Cintiq is on its way to me. For those that don’t know: Loveliness.
Got it for book related reasons:
1. I need a better art suite (tablet + program) to work on book covers. Sai+Picasa was a headache inducing nightmare (for that type of thing, nothing against either program otherwise).
2. Now I can start creating fun things like stickers and buttons. Which I’m sure will sell to my mom and someone random who doesnt even know what they’re buying. But I can give them away as ‘swag’. Maybe that’s getting ahead of myself, but I’d rather have the stuff prior to needing it, then not to have it on hand if it becomes something I need. I guess I’m just planning ahead and hoping for the best.
3. I’ll also be creating art for my books. I started out as an artist (not a writer) so I’ll be getting back to my roots a bit. And maybe I can fill up my gallery on here with stuff that isn’t ballpoint pen or Sharpie pen on computer paper. How novel. 😀
Anyone want to see something in particular?
