Wacom Cintiq Tablet


I got a wacom cintiq pro 16". It is one of the best digital investments I've ever made. I'm super excited that I finally got this tool. I now have a completely digital workflow from beginning to send. I spent about 6 months researching different reviews to make sure this is what I wanted. There are other Chinese knock offs that had promising reviews, but I went with a brand I've used before. Prior to this purchase I'd owned a Wacom Bamboo & Wacom Intuos Pro. Then I purchased a iPad 2018 then I knew I wanted to get a tablet I could draw on full time. Another reason I went with wacom was that the drivers from the other manufacturers didn't have the greatest reviews.

Here are the videos I watched in order to make my decision.







Here is a Huion review that I thought was helpful.
