Wacom Cintiq 16 Review + SKETCH!


Milo, look! Wacom just sent me their newest Wacom Cintiq 16, and I’ve heard great things about this. I thought today we could unbox it, see all the features, and then I can draw you guys something. Oh! And also, I just got a brand new mic, so you can hear an improvement in the sound quality and I think it’s- What!? Milo, look! Another one. Now I have two! Well, it looks like I can give one away at the very end of the video. [Milo] Hey! That one’s for me! Buddy no, this one’s for the audience.
[Milo] Audience schmaudience. Okay, let’s just get into it Yeah, so this is the Wacom Cintiq 16. And it just came out, brand new in January. And there are so many choices to choose from now. There’s so many tablets, because digital art and the internet is blossoming. But I feel like Wacom is the most recognizable brand. And I have done a review for them before, on their Mobile Studio Pro, which retails for about… two to three thousand dollars. Which is kind of expensive, and a lot of people can’t afford that. This one is $650. Which is significantly more affordable and so let’s get into it. Here we go. A nice clean box. Oh! This is the reveal. Ready, guys? Oh. [Laughter] A black box. What a reveal. [Laughter] Beautiful! Look at that. If companies can organize well, then I am a happy customer. Here’s the actual grand review. Whoa! It’s shiny. This is the Wacom pen right here. We have our basic power cables and wires. We have the Cintiq itself. And we have the pen. Just an FYI, this isn’t a mobile computer, this is a tablet screen where you can connect it to your computer. And you can draw on top of it, and the image shows on the screen. Also Wacom sent me a stand that comes with the Cintiq, but is sold separately. So, we’re gonna take a minute real quick to set that up. Wow, I’m such a masculine man. Screwing screws. I didn’t know this before, but the Cintiq also has its own stand, built inside the Cintiq. This is about the height that it goes at. Right here. But if you want something higher and a more adjustable height, then you would probably get the stand. Which goes all the way up, like that. That would be my preferred height, I think. Right there. Just a quick info for you guys. Even though it’s a Wacom Cintiq 16. The screen size is fifteen point six inches. Oh my gosh, I just pulled something. Whoa, check that out! What? I just found this out. This little thing in here is for your pen. You plug that in, and you put your pen, and it holds your pen. That’s super awesome. Now it’s connected. Check this out. Oh, I totally missed this, but the stand also comes with these two edge guards. And this goes on the bottom of your Cintiq. And before we actually get started, I always like to test new tablet displays with the detail technique. I look at old artwork. I look at the colors, and the brightness, and the vibrance. This is a piece I just released. Zoom in, see how it looks. Looks pretty nice. Look at that! The colors look accurate. And that’s one thing I really admire about iMac’s or Wacom products, is they really take a lot of integrity and detail in how the colors are perceived. The most important thing I look for with tablets is the response rate. How smooth is the response rate? And this one is pretty nice. You guys can see that, right? Watch. To be absolutely honest, no technology is ever perfect Every product is gonna have some sort of a small lag with response rate. If I can get close to the one-to-one ratio, then I’m a satisfied customer. And this one, it looks really really good so far. A lot of you guys know that I’m religiously working on my book Nima this year. And this is an original character from Nima’s world. Her name is Sloan. This is why you read instruction manuals. You remember this thing right here? Where you plug it in? I just learned that there are extra nibs inside this thing. What the heck, I didn’t even know that. Look at this. See those nibs. That’s so freaking cool. This is a one-stop shop. This is like your changing nib station. So you put it in, then you tilt it. It’s supposed to come o- woah! Guys, you see that? Look at that. Ah! My bad, well, we just lost one, but the cool thing is, we have like three more. So, we’re just gonna slide it out, like that. And we’re gonna take one to replace. And now your nib is replaced. Ah, thank you. Thank you. Thank you. [Laughter] I’m just gonna keep refining this real quick, and I’ll check back soon. Welcome back, and here’s the progress of the piece of Sloan so far. This is about an hour, an hour and a half of painting. We got the colors down, the composition, but I feel like it’s missing something. Oh, wait a minute. What is a Ross Draws video without some color dodge!? Milo, what time is it?
[Milo] It’s color dodge time! It’s color dodge time! Aw man, here we go. Here we go, Sloan! Give me an ice attack! I hope you enjoyed the new character from my book, Nima. You can see the final piece on my social, at RossDraws. Working on the new Cintiq was a lot of fun. The colors look great. It looks accurate. The response time was quick. I worked on this in complete broad sunlight. I’ve been having James stand right here as I film. James, move real quick. Look at all that sun. Oh my gosh! Thanks, James. Go back. MVP. Even in broad sunlight, I was able to work because it has an anti-glare film. My only real complaint, is that the price of the stand is $80. If you’re on a budget that can be kind of pricey. The upside is, the stand is a nice quality and makes for the best drawing experience. I know some of you are seeing if this one is the right one for you or looking to purchase your very first Cintiq. And I know that there are so many options to choose from, and.. pro 32, there’s a 24, 16, 13, the 22 HD, I have the 27, and there’s probably a few more. But this one was built for the sole purpose of being an affordable entry to the Cintiq line. I think it’s a fantastic option and you can’t go wrong. And if you’re thinking about getting a Cintiq 16, Wacom is giving all my fans a free stand! Just enter the code ROSSDRAWS when you checkout. There’s more info on all that in my description This code is valid for two weeks starting today, and I’m really sorry, US members only. But the good news is, we have a Cintiq 16 to give away. This one, anyone can enter, anyone around the world Rule number one, follow Wacom on twitter. And rule number two, answer the question of the video. If you were on a deserted island, what three things would you bring? I’ll probably bring Milo. Popcorn, I love popcorn. And three, lots of fresh underwear. I love warm underwear against your skin. It just feels so nice and clean. Let me know in the comments below and we’ll choose a very very very lucky subscriber to give this Cintiq to. I’ll also sign and draw on the box too, so good luck. I hope you enjoyed the review. And if you get one of these Cintiq’s, I hope you enjoy it as much as me and Milo do. Right buddy? You like it, huh? Don’t forget to subscribe, and remember, every day is a color dodge day.

    okay so I was looking for reviews for this tablet (because I am currently trying to improve my digital art and this tablet seems PERFECT) and CAN I JUST SAY THAT YOU ARE AWESOME!! You seem so enthusiastic and passionate about what you do, and you seem to give off a bubbly aura throughout this whole video! Usually other reviews I see for tablets and such are kinda monotone and dragged out. But this one is awesome! Subscribeeeeed!

    Unfortunately this product DOES NOT support Photoshop CS 6 and older versions. To all the millions of amateur artist and hobbyist who purchased the old Photoshop apps outright and thought that would keep you happy for the rest of your life, forget this Wacom Cintiq 16. I purchased the Adobe Deluxe Suite CS-4 and CS-5. I also bought Adobe Illustrator CS 6. Apparently all of my Adobe purchases would be incompatible with the Wacom Cintiq 16. Wacom says they don't have the drivers for older Adobe apps.
    I don't know who I am angrier with … Wacom or Adobe. Nevertheless, millions of people cannot use older apps; they must "rent" the new ADOBE products in order to use this Wacom CIntiq 16.

    This is the only review that convinced me that this really is a good display tablet. Seeing it demonstrated with a real drawing makes it more appealing that just hearing the technical aspects. The way people have generally talked about it makes it sound like it's got some bad parallax or something, but it really doesn't look bad, I personally didn't even notice it. Thanks for the review! ^-^

    Got a Cintiq 16 a few months ago, love it but gotta say the only downside is that disgusting clutter of cables to go along with it. Can be a real pain in the ass but other than that its pretty good.
