Today was my last day at Grey Area. I’m now taking a week off and then I’ll be joining ranks at Redlynx. Which is a Ubisoft owned studio here in Helsinki. I’m bit sad and already missing my old colleagues but I’m eager to face the new challenges.
PACT will be a tool to help freelance fantasy, sci-fi, and comic book illustrators negotiate a better living wage for themselves.
If you are a freelance artist you should check this out. Even if you don’t plant to support them at least check the video. Lot of good insight!
Its really nice to see
great AWESOME pixel art alive and kicking.
Just wanted to share my Wacom Cintiq 24HD experiences. If you are planning to get one you might want to reconsider it.
I ordered mine couple of months ago and it has been all downhill after that. As you can see from the attached pictures I already have 2 of them and both are broken. Retailer just asked do I want a new one or my money back. I’m taking my money back and returning these two tomorrow. Drawing and painting experience with Cintiq 24HD is superior compared to the other models. You can make really long and comlex lines without any problems. I’ve been using Graphire 3, Intuos 3, 4 and Wacom 12WX before this so I know what I’m talking about. BUT! Wacom seems to be unable to to deliver working units. First cintiq had faulty fans and second one had red flickering display with black stripes. Other customes have had their own share of strange problems. If the product doesn’t work out of the box… how well does it perform after couple of years? You can use Intuos tablets for years and they still work and feel like new.
Intuos 5 is coming and this time with touch inputs. You can pan, zoom and rotate with your fingers. How cool is that!
