Ok, for my 18th bday i got a wacom cintiq 21 ux, and since my real monitor is only 19 inches, i decided to replace it with the wacom entirely. This also makes sense because i have two video cards running in SLI, which demands for games to be played on really high resolutions to get the benefit.
So question is: Can i use this permanantly as my monitor to game, and do everything i want, and then when i draw just lower it? I am asking this because yestarday i used it for a bit, and it got pretty damn warm.
So if anyone knows if it can handle this task, please let me know.
Question two: My sister ordered me the art of Paul Bonner, and Spectrum 14. I also have Greg Cappullo's book.
So which other book should I get? I am thinking of the art of games workshop or something, but I wanted to ask you first.
I remember someone talking about a sick art book by a very well known artist who developed a distinctive style, but the book was kinda sold out. his style was extremely gritty, weird tense poses, characters with gasmasks, with a surreal twist. if anyone remembers his name, let me know
EDIT: I LOVE MY NEW CINTIQ TABLET, BUT IT APPEARS I MANAGED TO MAKE SCRATCHES ALL OVER THE PLACE PRETTY MUCH FIRST DAY. I CAN SEE THEM IF I LET THE LIGHT REFLECT OFF THE TABLET AND BEND MY HEAD. ANYONE KNOW HOW I MAD THE SCRATCHES, OR ANYTHING ABOUT THEM AT ALL?
