One of the things prevalent in today’s animation industry is the ramant digital takeover. It’s everywhere and only a short-sighted artist can dodge it. Pencils, paper and erasersÂ haveÂ given way to digital screens andÂ styli.Â Many in our industry do not like it and yet, we really have no choice but to either embrace it or get out of the way for those who do. If you read this site’s posts with any regularity, one thing stands out more than the rest; in the fact that while many of us artists work on money making juggernauts of humor and fun, not many of us make a lot of money doing it. Most artists are not rich and shelling out over two grand for a piece of equipment is not easy.
This in turn was from another Tumblr site of anotherÂ talentedÂ artist named Ray FrendenÂ who bought one and reviews it. Apparently he loves it even tohugh it does not have the extra buttons on the Cintiq. Whatever, for around $500 bucks it’s a steal and you really can’t beat it.
Ray has an Amazon store set up where you can buy the Yiynova but it seems to be out of stock now. I’m sure that’s because his site has gotten 35,000+ hits since he posted. It’ll come back. If you buy one let us know!
