End of chapter 2

Probably a good time for me to take another week off. Also I have recently acquired a Surface Pro 3. I’ll write up a thorough review at some point but in the meantime, the summary is that I like it but with a few reservations (mostly in that the stylus accuracy could be better and Windows 8.1 still has a lot of rough edges, especially with how Photoshop works in it).

As far as why I went with the Surface Pro 3 instead of the Cintiq Companion 2, this is why. Basically I really wish Wacom made a Cintiq in the same size as the Intuos Pro Large. 13" is too small, 22" is too huge. I’d actually have gone with the Cintiq Companion 2 if it weren’t for it having such a stupidly gigantic bezel and relatively tiny screen, not to mention the fact there’s nowhere I can find in Seattle where I could try one out in person first. But if I can try a Cintiq Companion 2 out I might end up switching to that anyway (since there’s enough moderate annoyances with the Surface that I’m not particularly enamored with it).

Still on break

My wrists are even more terrible than usual lately, but I’m still drawing simple things (obviously). I have an appointment with an orthopedist on Friday who will hopefully have some ideas about what to do, and if I just need to take a leave of absence from my day job that’s doable. Of course that means not being able to work on Lewi, either, which is frustrating for me because I really want to work on it. Argh.

Meanwhile, I ended up not liking the Surface Pro 3 after all (contrary to my previous news post), and ordered a Wacom Cintiq Companion 2. Hopefully that’ll work out a lot better.

As always I’m accepting guest art and guest strips and so on, and I have stuff for sale. Please check it out!
