SketchTheatre.com

Here is a sweet site with all the video candy you could want. You get a decent view of process and there’s a lot of great artists.

More Wacom? Intuos 5 better than Intuos 4

I have a Intuos 3 and 4. My 3 is pretty hashed since i took it apart to see if I could build a DIY Cintiq… But my 4 is terrific i love everything about it. The surfacing, finishes, functionality. Its perfect…and i just got it about two months ago. Bummer. So for those of [...]
