Tough Guy

Here's a quick warm-up that I did on the Cintiq today. Kevin asked if there was any lag time and the answer is "it depends." First of all I am running Photoshop 7 on my 1.67 GHz Powerbook with 1 GB of ram and the Cintiq runs great! However, I'm mainly doing storyboard sketches with very simple brushes. I find that (obviously) the larger the file and more bells and whistles on the brushes (scattering, texture, color dynamics, etc.) the more lag I get. The other thing is with my method of drawing, I use a lot of short strokes rather than long fluid strokes. When I do make a long stroke, it can take a beat to catch up. Still experimenting. more soon.
