While outdated, I think this still contains a lot of useful information! I'm about to purchase my first Cintiq after using the regular ol' Intuos for years. There is a lot of useful information in here that I did not know I didn't know. Thanks for this, even if technology has outgrown it now! :D

Thanks for making such a detailed, in-depth tutorial! This will help me streamline my workflow so I can focus on drawing and painting - the fun stuff - rather than doing everything the painstakingly slow and difficult way that I'm, unfortunately, used to.

This is great, thank you.  I made the first mistake you listed, about buying a professional tablet with no experience whatsoever.  I ended up spending my entire summer's pay on a cintiq (the 22hd one . . .).  I felt like a complete idiot at first, but luckily I'm serious enough about art and I LOVE using it.  Still learning, but it's going great and this is very helpful. :)

I had a really hard time getting my head around layers but I think I finally understand their importance and how to use them to my advantage so thank you. Also I will keep your advice on drawing and painting in mind when I get my tablet soon.

Thanks again for this guide. :thanks:
