I am a storyboard artist with 2D animation skills (and college degree) and with a childhood dream of doing comics. I seem to be too lazy to reach those stars (plus I hear the pay just sucks) so I do storyboards for video games aiming for excellence in visual storytelling , and other tasks helping people SEE the fuzzy thoughts they have in their minds. Hoping to storyboard big movies someday.

Current job: Storyboard Artist at Eidos Montréal - Square Enix
Current Residence: Canada (Montreal,Quebec)
I'll say it straight: I regret buying the Cintiq Companion (the full version, not the Hybrid one)

What is there to say?  The battery life on or off is a morbid joke.  The screen is, finally, too small.  Dire lack of physical shortcut buttons.  Overall it's just not quite right.

For that price I would've bought a regular Cintiq instead.

Until they fix the portability (no pencil attachment or keyboard integration, too few yet clumsy shortcut buttons) and impracticality of their current excuse for a battery, they don't have a winner.
Anything under 17 inches makes it not quite easy to work on either but that's not something I can blame them for.

Wish there was a carrying-flip-over-cover-stand-case thing on the market for it.  I would at least be able to carry this without having a separate pencil case and keyboard (and you NEED the power cord, which is thick and has a power box.  It's a laptop afterall).

Maybe I'm also too used to using two screens : one for reference and files, the other just for art-making.  But...Just saying it's a regret as I look at my aging 7 years old Cintiq and knowing the Companion is my only replacement.  It's not cheap.

Tag, quality  deviant, you’re it! Quality doesn't mean that you have a lot of followers, or a lot of messages. It means that you’re nice to other people, and you deserve to be happy. If you get this message, someone is telling you that they love you as you are, and they don’t care how much followers you have. Send this to 10 deviants who deserve it. If you break the chain, nothing will happen. But it’s just good to let someone know that you love them!
