Thank you for dropping by!
It's been a while since I've gotten the 13HD in the mail, so I'm a little late to write up this review of sorts, but better late than never.

So, as it has been explained in my previous entries, the secondhand Wacom Companion I had bought failed spectacularly. Since art is something I don't think I could live without, I needed to get a replacement...

Enter the Cintiq 13HD. If you've familiarized yourself with the pictures of my old Companion, you'll immediately notice that this looks completely identical to it, as you can observe below.

Well, the Companion was fashioned after the 13HD. Where they differ is in the guts.

The 13HD is merely a tablet monitor that you connect to your computer through USB and HDMI, essentially combining a regular Wacom tablet with your computer monitor.

The Wacom Companion (1st Generation) is virtually the same thing as a 13HD, except that it is, itself, a portable computer. Because of that, the Companion is a bit more feature-rich in comparison to its more basic counterpart. It's touch enabled (can use your fingers on the screen), can detect when it's been rotated and flip the screen accordingly, boasts a rear and front-facing camera, has a decent battery, and is, as stated, a self contained portable computer that doesn't need to be connected to any external hardware to function.

So, how does the 13HD model stack up to that? Well... It's certainly not as feature-rich, but it doesn't need to be. It's purpose is simple -- it's a monitor that you can draw on. Sure, you need to hook it up to a computer of your choice, finagle with the drivers and run some calibrations, but then you're golden. It works, and it works well. The screen is bright, vibrant, and clear. The pen is responsive, and the weight of the unit itself is comfortable. The provided stand does well enough, and the cord that connects it to the computer is long, convenient, and funnels the USB, HDMI, and power all into a single port that locks into the side of the unit.

Right now, on Amazon, the Wacom 13HD is going for $799.95 brand new, straight from Wacom themselves. That's where I ordered it from. I didn't feel like taking another chance with a used unit.

The old Companion I had bought was around $1,200 used. I really wish the 13HD was a bit cheaper -- it has no excusable reason to be that expensive, but Wacom is a luxury brand, I suppose. There are alternatives out there, such as the Huion KAMVAS GT-191, which is a significantly larger tablet monitor that sits at a lower price of $499 on Amazon. I'm beginning to regret not going for that, but really, I think it's too big. I wouldn't have any space left on my desk.

Either way, the 13HD is a good, albeit greedy product. I haven't had any complaints with it yet other than the price tag.

Sketch Dump 15
Fanarts, concepts, doodles, and even some finished pieces I never got around to posting here. If you follow my Twitter, some of these may look familiar to you.

Let's keep chug, chug, chuggin' along.

Mix of traditional media and Clip Studio
Aster [Commission]
This is a character one of my good friends made for her DnD campaign. It was initially supposed to be a birthday gift, but over the course of completing the piece, she urged that I should get paid for this. So, it turned into a full-blown commission.

It was very fascinating working on this. Leather armor and big, poofy hair is something I don't normally tackle too much in my art, so I think I learned a lot from this.

Clip Studio
Nanachi Study
I've been interested in studying other styles to see how I can further refine my own. So have more Nanachi. Good design.

[Edit] Reattached tail.

Nanachi from Made in Abyss
This anime has inspired me more than any other that I can think of. With it's presentation and palpable sense of unadulterated adventure, it's a very gripping experience that I won't soon forget, and I can't wait for more.

So, even though I hardly draw fanart of anime, I had to draw this cute little fuzzy critter.

So...I was gone for...I'm not even sure how long. and I come back and finally get the chance to look at your art and lo and freakking behold you've improved so dang much I was left wondering if it was your art or official for a while. WHAT THE HECK HAPPENED WHILE I WAS GONE. 

Seriously man, I don't know what drug you've been taking but give me a life time supply. I can't even begin to tell you how shocked I am to see how much your art has improved since I last saw it. I'm not even exaggerating when I say shocked. Wow. It's WOW. I'm amazed, seriously! Gonna need to get a lot of tips from you...
NatahanStudios Featured By Owner Nov 22, 2016  Hobbyist General Artist
Thank you so much! I just tirelessly keep working on it. I'm stubborn if anything else when it comes to art. But yes, it certainly has been a while! I know you said you haven't been drawing much lately, but I still want to see what you've done! I'm sure you've improved a lot as well, whether you think so or not.
SilverRiku Featured By Owner Nov 23, 2016  Hobbyist Artist
haha, the most I've done is doodles, of which you've seen on FB if anything else..aside from that I did just post a pic recently...I feel more like I've lost my touch rather than gained any new experience...Seeing you doing so well at everything you want to do makes me want to start life all over so I can do what I really want and not what I 'should' according to others...Seriously, you're amazing. I'm really glad you're doing well! You're a real inspiration. A real living inspiration. I'm grateful to know you.

Keep up the good work
NatahanStudios Featured By Owner Nov 23, 2016  Hobbyist General Artist
That really means a lot to me, honest. I'm elated to know that I'm an inspiration to someone! I must say I feel the same way about you and your art, too. I've always admired the carefree style you have, and how expressive it is. Every piece I've seen of yours has some kind of tangible feeling to it. I'm particularly impressed with your doodles! Doodling is something I actually have a lot of trouble with. I envy people who can just fill a sketch book with doodles and scribbles, regardless of their quality. Doodles are awesome.
