At Lucca, I tested the Wacom Cintiq Companion and soft-nubbed Creative Stylus. This is a PC computer, and the drawing program was a new one which, unfortunately, I don’t remember the name they told me. (The guys spoke no english and it was lost in a string of unrecognizable words.) The Creative Stylus is advertised for iPads, but the drawing control it has in the Cintiq combination I used is incredible. The drawing capability was endless, with infinite resolution, and the lines were perfectly formed with none of the ragged edges I get with a Wacom Pro tablet/stylus in Photoshop.
I have to tell you, some of the comic art I saw in Italy, whether it was pen and ink, paintings or computer, was astounding. It’s stunning how good the artists in Italy are. It certainly humbled me!
