Well i`ve been quiet for a while but here it is, my #Wacom #CintiqCompanion2 i7 #Review.

Hope you like it and feel free to share and post any questions you might have.
In 2013 Wacom introduced the first of its new mobile tablets, the Cintiq Companion. This originally came in two flavours, one having an Android based operating system and the other using the Windows 8 operating system. Myself, like many others, picked our jaws off the floor and then tried to figure

In this video I take a look at how #ZBrush, #Mischief, #Photoshop and #Maya3d hold up on the #Wacom #CintiqCompanion2. If your thinking of investing, watch this first and see if your app of choice is up to the job.

I've had a few people ask me about the fan on the ‪#‎CintiqCompanion2‬, apparently there are reports that it's noisy.

Unfortunately this appears to be true. Yes, you expect the fan to kick in from time to time on any device like this but with the Companion it seems to be on most of the time. It's not a whisper of a fan either, it's quite loud and I've had to stop working on the odd evening because it became annoying to other people in the room.

I first thought it might be because I was using #ZBrush but the fan came on as soon as the system booted, and stayed on.

Here's hoping #Wacom have a firmware update up their sleeves to address this.

I`ve been doing some more investigation today into the loss of pressure in #ZBrush on the #SurfacePro3. It seems that it works fine with the default ZBrush tools and scenes but breaks when you import an obj.

If possible could you try the following as send back your results, to see if you get the same issues?

Load ZBrush 4R7 64bit.
Select a Dynamesh sphere and test sculpt on it.
Next load and sculpt on one of the tools which comes with ZBrush like DemoHead.
This time import an obj file and sculpt on that.
This is where things break and the pressure is lost.
If you now try and go back to the DemoHead the pressure is still lost.

Any feedback would be really useful and appreciated!

I may have just a found bug which unfortunately could spell the end of my time with #ZBrush on the #SurfacePro3.

Firstly the #RadialMenu keeps crashing which is annoying in itself. Worse than that though #ZBrush keeps losing the pens pressure sensitivity.

You may have noticed this in my recent video showing ZBrush running on the Surface, where the pressure didn`t work on the Red Sonja model. I initially thought this was a bug but after trying to work on more models which I saved from the desktop the problem seems to persist.

Its fine initially on Dynamesh spheres but not on anything I load which was created externally.

Is this just my issue or is anyone else finding this?

Fancy seeing how #ZBrush and #Mischief hold up on the Surface Pro 3?

In this video, taken directly from the i7 version of the Surface, I perform some simple tests using the 64bit version of ZBrush 4R7 and Mischief, just to see how well they perform and also what the pen pressure is like for sketching.

I also demonstrate the on screen keyboard, RadialMenu.

Feeling a little slugish? Can you feel your clothes getting tighter? Maybe a fitness tracker can help you shed a few pounds or get more active but your not sure which to invest in?

Well perhaps my #Fitbit #Charge #Review could help and luckily for you its now live!

If you work in an industry where each day is spent sat behind a desk and then you have the commute home, which again is spent sat in a car, bus or train, you will know that once you finally reach the welcoming glow of your front door, heading to the gym is the last thing on your mind. You certainly

I am excited to announce that my next major product review will be the ‪#‎Wacom‬ ‪#‎CintiqCompanion2‬, and I should have my hands on it before the weekend :)

It will be the i7 256GB model, so a good comparison to the ‪#‎SurfacePro3‬ I just reviewed.

The wait is over, my in depth #SurfacePro3 review is now live! This review also features hands on details on how #Maya, #ZBrush and #Mischief work on the device.

Is this the device for you? Read on to find out...
