I had never tried a cintiq until very recently, and once I did I realized I needed to get a hold of one once I had the money. I find the smallest version on ebay at a great price and shelled out. It is so much fun to doodle with it, for me its a revelation compared to an inteous tablet.
I love going on sites like Tumlr and Pinterest and getting inspired. This is done from a great looking photo of an actress off of Mad Men
