In the next couple of months Wacom is celebrating, and the reason is none other than the company is 35 years old! To sweeten the occasion, the Japanese company is offering some really nice deals when you purchase some of their best hardware through their online store.
Wacom pen displays are widely popular among digital artists all over the world, but they are not exactly known for their versatility and portability. The model the Epigraphic Survey’s artists use is primarily meant for heavy-duty studio work...
This bit of news comes hot from CES, the world's gathering place for those who has an interest in consumer technologies, where Wacom has announced its most affordable pen display ever, the $649/ €599.90 Cintiq 16.
The last time Wacom updated its Pro Pen series was a long time ago. Now, in response to users who have requested a more ergonomic stylus, the company is introducing the Pro Pen slim.
Whether you’d like to use your iPad as a drawing display or merely as an extension of your Mac’s screen real estate, you will find numerous third-party solutions in the App Store.
After launching the $649 Cintiq 16 earlier this year, Wacom just announced a larger version of its entry-level tablet called Wacom Cintiq 22 aimed for creatives on a budget.
I’ve used a few different drawing displays in the past years and one aspect of their design stayed consistent: they had large, spacious screens, at least 20 Inches in diameter. I loved my first Cintiq 21UX just as much as the Cintiq 22HD I used in Egypt.
When it comes to finding the ideal drawing tablet for one’s everyday documentation duties, we all have our different preferences. Some of us want portability over everything else and would like to take our devices wherever we go.
When transferring the Epigraphic Survey’s documentation procedure from traditional ink drawings to digitally “inked” pixel art, one aspect seemed to be of high priority from the get-go: owning the largest possible screen for studio work. Each epigraphic assignment has preferences regarding the applied method and the workflow utilized to get the desired results.
An accessory that should be considered for anybody using Wacom’s solutions, whether in the ﬁeld or in the studio. This little wireless device provides a set of seventeen customizable buttons and a touch ring to allow the artist achieving instant one-touch access to timesaving shortcuts.
A lot of digital artists have the problem that after a while of using a Wacom tablet, the surface warms up and their hands start "sticking" to the drawing display, making the glass surface less than ideal for that smooth brushstroke they were about to draw.
Wacom’s new Cintiq Pro tablets are great drawing displays, but they don’t provide a tremendous amount of flexibility when it comes to finding the right drawing position.
With the just released Wacom One, digitalEPIGRAPHY revisits and compares Wacom's budget options to see if the new Cintiqs can be competitive enough in the well-established low-cost drawing display market.
Within the Medinet Habu Temple complex in Thebes, just north of the Small Temple and near the Sacred Lake, is an unassuming monument standing alone among the remaining rubble of an ancient mudbrick wall.
