To draw, or not to draw...on a tablet. That is the question.

So many tablets, so many models, and the decision for many traditional illustrators is which one to choose when embarking on their journey into digital content creation. In this article we look at Wacom's Cintiq Pro 16, it's features, and why you'll never look back!

So many tablets, so many models, and the decision for many traditional illustrators is which one to choose when embarking on their journey into digital content creation. In this article we look at Wacom's Cintiq Pro 16, it's features, and why you'll never look back!

The reviews

Aaron Rutten shares his review of the Cintiq Pro on his YouTube channel. He also has some great tutorials to help you get started.

We also love this review by Tad Carpenter, an industry veteran, who picked up a Cintiq Pro 16 for the first time when it was released, and gave it a test drive.

Like an old man trying to understand Snapchat, I was afraid I would be confused and just walk away shaking my head. The new Cintiq 16 is portable and very responsive when drawing on it, so I was hopeful to see if I could pick it up and incorporate this process into my daily routine.

If by the time you finished reading this you answered YES to our initial question, we look forward to seeing what you create!
