My uncle works as a lead animation designer for a news studio and makes a LOT of money for it. He knows I'm into arts and things and we can converse together and understand what each other is saying. He's more of a friend than a family member since I like to keep friends closer than family sometimes... Look he is just an awesome uncle. We all have that one family member who is like that.
Aaaanyways I just turned 18 today and he sent me a text and I will shrink it down because the conversation was long... like 30+ messages long. Short version~
Him: Hey, Since you're going to college, I feel like being the rich douchey uncle. Do you want an Intuos Cintiq 12WX 12.1? I found one refurb-
Soooo yeah. Believe me, while the intuos 4 is nice, if someone offers a cintiq then YOU F*ING ACCEPT THAT BAD BOY! They usually come ~1,000$ new cheap! So yeah. I might draw more now with an interactive screen instead of this point-and-guess work I have been doing with my current tablet. People... invest in a cintiq. If you can find one cheap, get it.
