Well I finally bit the bullet, and got a Wacom Cintiq pen display. This thing is just incredible, and truly has to be experienced first hand to be fully appreciated. Hands-on drawing, with no need to scan. Increasing productivity. Improving work quality. The old Intuos was great, and I had many years of valuable service out of it, but nothing beats the true hands-on feel of having the pen right on the drawing surface like the Cintiq does. It's an amazing device, no doubt, and I am so glad to finally have one to use full time.
