Bruce- I love you the most, really I do! But I get to use the most amazing digital tool at work- it's a Wacom tablet on steroids: The Wacom Cintiq 21UX. It retails for about $2000, so it isn't something that I'll be buying for myself anytime soon. It's a combination monitor/ Wacom interface, where you draw right on the screen, rather than a tablet. It has all the customizable features of the Intuous, but has the touch and feel of really drawing on paper. The action is slightly delayed... and I mean slightly. But it's smooth, fast, and totally amazing! I'm having fun learning how to move smoothly from drawing to controls, and I'll learn to set up the controls soon. The cool thing is that I won't have to deal with sketching then scanning, then cleaning it up. With layers, I can create an undersketch, then with a new layer, I can do the tight drawing. Plus, I can even use my ruler and elliptical templates. I'm in heaven!
