In this video demonstration Robert A. Marzullo does an artist’s perspective on using both the Intuos 5 and the Cintiq 22HD in Adobe Photoshop. You will see the real time use of these tablets as he digitally paints a quick nose profile. He talks about the differences in speed and ease of use.
These two tablet styles are always up for continuous debate. Which one is better and most artists always lean towards the more expensive unit, the Wacom Cintiq series. But people need to understand that many artists will actually go back to the Intuos tablets for things like the ergonomic feel and some artist have expressed that they can attain a better speed on the Intuos 5 or compatible models.
Another Pro that comes from the Intuos 5 is that you can still consider this somewhat portable. With a laptop of course. Albeit not as portable as something like an iPad Pro but it still can allow you to move around the house and even your local coffee shop without a ton of effort. Just be ready to spend time getting comfortable with looking at the screen while drawing on your table or lap. Some artists have even expressed that symmetry is easier to focus on because their hand in no longer in the way of their art.
We all create very differently and the main thing to remember with any device and any program that given enough time and energy we can produce amazing art with them. Just remember the art comes from the artist not the tool!
We hope you found this review on these products informative and helpful. More on the way very soon and good luck with your decision!
