The trends of digital artwork is always changing, which usually leads to some pretty interesting conversations between professionals. One such conversation brought up something that I hadn’t really considered. I guess you could even say, one of the down sides to going totally digital. As my friend pointed out that he really missed drawing and inking outside in the sun.
In terms of a geographical location, living in “Sunny” San Diego certainly does have it’s benefits especially regarding the climate. I typically look for a mobile option with everything I do, I hadn’t really considered the outside realm as part of the equation.
More so it seems that Wacom has heard the cry of the digital artist. Not just in mobility but in the stylus nib department. Having already reviewed the Intous Creative Stylus 1, my only real complaint came down to the size of the nib. (Or tip of the stylus) It felt much like sketching with your thumb. Well Wacom apparently is listening and cooked up the Creative Stylus 2, with yes folks a smaller nib.
Is it time for the digital artist to join the outside world. To un-tether themselves from their desk? Finally having the option to do some digital artwork in the sun?
