A Natural Pen Experience
Whether you are sketching a ground breaking new product, creating detailed Illustrations, or painting game art, working with the pressure and tilt-sensitive Professional Pen directly on the screen of a Cintiq is an intuitive and focused creative experience. The Professional Pen glides smoothly across the surface of the screen and the display can be adjusted and positioned in a variety of different ways to emulate the working position of a drafting table, easel or sketchbook. Traditional Artistic Effects
The Cintiq Professional Pen is both pressure and tilt-sensitive, which allows you to create natural brush and marker effects that reveal your own unique style and technique. By varying your drawing pressure or the angle that you grip the pen, supporting software applications will allow you to vary line weights (the opacity and thickness of a line), direct paint flow and create many unique brush effects, like in real life.
The Benefits of Working Digitally
Working digitally on a Cintiq vs. working with traditional artist’s materials has many advantages, including: working in layers, compositing elements from several sources into a single image, scaling images or parts of an image, modifying colours and contrast, and the ability to undo and erase mistakes. For those who prefer to continue to work with traditional materials for some part of their process, working digitally can expand the creative possibilities and save time in the development of concepts. Those who use the Cintiq for their entire process, from concept to final artwork, often report significant improvements in their speed and, as any freelancer will tell you, time is money!
Create in Comfort
When compared to using a mouse, the natural drawing and painting movements that are used with a pen are a more comfortable and expressive way to create artwork. With a variety of adjustable display stands and the natural comfort of a pen, Cintiq users can fully focus on enjoying the creative process.
Using Both Hands
It’s natural to use two hands to perform tasks. Hold a nail with one hand while hammering with the other. Move and rotate cold press paper while painting and sponging in water colour. With digital, you can now zoom in and out, rotate, and move your canvas while drawing and painting interactively. A natural way of working is taken further with smart software and the combination of multi-touch and a pressure sensitive pen.
