Wacom Cintiq 21UX + Erogtron LX Review (+photos)
(I know my personal friends will probably make fun of me for writing this review with copious photos, but eh, I enjoy it! XD And I can at least offer some insight into these things :))
So about 2 or 3 weeks ago, I managed to pick up (by pure chance) a Cintiq 21UX from B&H that was in stock. (For those who don't know, it's damn near impossible to find the 21UX in stock at just about any store you can think of. This is because the 21UX is a very niche product and makes up so little of the demand for the already tiny graphic tablet market. It's manufactured in such small numbers, it's on a near to-order basis, so you can wait up to 1 or 2 months to receive one after ordering.) So being the only one in stock at B&H, I knew I had to take it and upgrade from my 3-year old 12WX.

Background Tips
Hey all!  I've gotten a few people asking me about advice for drawing backgrounds.  So instead of being a true gentleman and writing each person back separately, I figure it's easier to tackle this with an nice, impersonal journal post!  Maybe one day I'll shoot a tutorial or something to actually demonstrate what I'm talking about, but for now a quick list will have to do.
*Before I start, a quick disclaimer—by no means do I have "it" figured out.  My opinions on backgrounds and how to tackle them are always changing.  And a lot of what I think is based on the artists on whose shoulders I stand upon.  Feel free to disagree with any of this.
Remember those point-and-click adventure games from the 90s?  I loved those games!  Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis, Flashback, Full Throttle, Space Quest, Hero Quest—adventure games blew me away by how beautiful, imaginative and expansi
