Just got a bit of an package in the mail. Had originally planned to bring it home for the holidays, but it seemed so big that I thought I might as well install it at mah office.

1. Aquire
2. Transport
3. Read manual
4.???
5. Profit!

This Cintiq24hd is my "business Christmas gift" to myself. Business has been acceptable so I had a bit of a surplus I felt i safely could spend on things like this. Now we only need to find good reasons to use this madness.

och sen klandras du för att just du står rak
Om du kan tro på ditt när andra riktar
sitt välbekanta tvivel mot din sak

Om var minut av nitti sen kan fyllas
med verk av dig som giltigt räknats ner
min vän, som jordens konung ska du hyllas
men du är också man, och det är mer."

That's a nice purchase. Can't wait to get my hands on similar stuff.

Pasi: the license plate is on the door itself, so that won't help :p though if you have half a brain and internet-skills that should be plentiful to find this place.

Did a quick sculpt in mudbox with this thing, then spent another day trying to get a good render on it. Still not where I want it to be, but its getting there.

And yeah, its expensive, but it won't lose value very quickly. Right now I wonder how good it really will be at drawing stuff in photoshop since I find the resolution a bit too coarse for my drawing-movements, but training might fix that.

The plate is on the door? Barbarians...

I think it does loose more value depending on the market you're eye'ing. That might actually be something I would E-Bay.

Yeah, maya paint-effects grass with some tweak and mia-shader, going to add some transparency to them next round I render it out. All in all I'm useless at adding hair in maya on something, need more training on that :p Shave'n'Haircut plugin next time.

Costs like $3000, so It probably wouldn't have been my first buy if I didn't live where I live. Hell, I probably could have managed if i bought a intuos a4, but eh, it was Christmas and I thought it was a good gift for myself.

God-damned shave and a haircut plugin, made my monday that much blacker(demo 32-bit 2011 version didn't render in mental-ray, for no apparent reason since it only should be 3-4 simple steps to get it to render). Gave up on it in the end, found a different shader for the existing one and trimmed off a few hairs. Re-rendered this evening after a buggy tuesday evening render(messed up the render settings, used 20 minutes before, 3 minutes after).

Anyway, link to new render. more dramatic angle and more fancy SSS I believe.
