Wonderful picture here~
Oh by chance do you enjoy the wacom cintiq 24? I was looking into getting it and wanted to hear what others thought about it.

Thank you ^^

Yes I really enjoy my Cintiq. It's very helpful and time saving when drawing, because you can basically draw on your screen with the pen-mouse it comes with. The wheels at the sides of the screen are very helpful too (you can decide what function they will have: allowing you to rotate your drawing, enlarge your brush without having to manually type it, or you can zoom with it.) It works well with all Adobe software and so far I had no problems with it at all. All I needed to do was get a certain cable for my macbook to have it run.

I bought the Cinti 24 HD, since the touch was a 1000 euro's more. I don't mind not having a touch function though, since I move over the screen a lot with my hand. I'd recommend a 'smudgeguard' glove though, keeps the screen clean ^^

If you have more specific questions I'd be happy to help.

*Sorry for the delayed reply, ugh so much college work!*
Thank you with all the input, it really gives me better understanding of how useful it is.

Wow that sounds great. At my school they have the 21x and I personally don't like the rollers on those things. Sure it is stable for a bit but it does move slightly here and there.
I do like that it has all those functions (much better than a basic tablet it sounds like), and I like the factor that the screen itself can move forward and down over the desk. But on that note, is the screen stable when you move it from its original position? Will it be stable when you move it far forward or backwards? Also how warm does the screen get when using it? I am usually on my computer more than 10 hrs a day and I don't want the screen to overheat or whatever. From experience with the 21x it seems the screens get really hot when using it for over an hour or so. Also when drawing, is there any delay with strokes (realtime vs what shows on the screen)?
If you could answer these questions that would be wonderful. Oh and if you could list any other pros/cons to it. 

Also, I plan to get the 24HD too. I don't like the touch factor in general, and to pay 1000+ more for one feature is dumb.

No problem ^^ And oh dear wall'o'text haha XD

The weight is very well distributed, the thing is a monster. Weighs 35kg's.
Can easily have it hanging over your lap without any issue: most of the weight is in the foot, not the screen. 
There's a 'lock' that locks the screen in place once you stop moving it. And there's two supportive rests that you can fold down to keep the screen from touching the table. (you'll need a big desk though haah)

I haven't been on it for so long but it never got hot, not even after a few hours straight. it has a fan, which brings me to my only con, (if I can even call it that.) it makes a little noise due to the fan. but not infernal racket haha XD

The penmouse is very sensitve: no delay in strokes at all. You just have to calibrate it when you do a set up, but that's it. It even depends how hard you push it down, how thick the lines will be. (no need to do it very hard).

lol Sorry ^^; didn't intend for it to be a wall of text. 

Yea, I have heard it was pretty huge and heavy, but that shouldn't be a problem; I think my desk is big enough for it. Same thing with the fan too; my computer currently has about 3 or so fans to make sure it doesn't overheat, so I am use to the noise. By chance is that located behind the monitor? I would assume that would be the only surface area it could rest on. 

Oh thats great too, I am glad it has locks and stationary settings to keep it steady. Same for the pen; no delay ^^.

Well thanks alot for that! I like to hear others opinions about it who actually have the device rather than those who only tried it like, once or twice. I feel more confident in getting it now ^^.

Sorry I was off for a while, but don't hesitate to ask ^^ There's some reviews on youtube as well, that's what I went with mostly. lmk if you plan on getting one ^^
DigitalDreama Featured By Owner Jun 4, 2014  Student Digital Artist
Ok then~
I think I have a good idea in mind about it though. I do plan on getting it and I am quite excited. 
I will check around youtube when I have time and see what they say too. 

Oh ya, I was going to ask, when you have it down over the table, will putting weight on it hurt it? 
Not like you are laying on it or anything, but like about the same weight as if you were sketching in a book or on a normal tablet? 
Some people said to not put any pressure on it (like hover your hand/ not rest it on the screen) and others said that it will be fine. 
(Also yes, you have been a great big help ^^)

I sometimes have an ipad (on it's protective cover so it won't scratch the cintiq screen) resting on it to use refs, but I won't do it too often. The cintiq is on a big desk with enough space around it to have books etc. and my laptop of course. And maybe the bit of heat the cintiq gives off could damage your tablet. I wouldn't know.

I keep my hand rested on it always when I work. You almost have to to reach different areas in your art. But I use a tablet glove so I won't smudge it (also cleans the screen at the same time ^^). Makes the glide of your hand over it a lot smoother and prevents scratching. That's one thing I'd reccomend to use :)
