If I could draw, I’d buy a Wacom Cintiq. I first discovered them years ago at the Game Developer’s Conference and was blown away.
For those of you who aren’t familiar with the Cintiq, it was like an early iPad for artists. It was like electronic paper: you drew on it with a stylus and it immediately turned whatever you drew into an electronic work of art.
|Okay, more useful than an iPad.|
|Hint: It has something to do with this color.|
|Honest, it wasn't all that hard to make something look good.|
This year, at the GDC, I stopped by the Wacom booth as I always did to check prices. This time I noticed a couple of young kids sketching on the Cintiqs. It looked something like this:
|Only, you know, better.|
And I realized, hell, even a Cintiq won’t help me.
