The Wacom Cintiq 27 QHD Touch is what I expected the high end of the digital illustration device world to be. It doesn’t feel as “magical” as the iPad Pro, but it’s a whole lot more powerful – and professional. It feels like a real professional piece of equipment, something that’s been perfected over several iterations – a tool that a top artist would buy again and again. While (as always) there are some changes I might make if I wanted the ideal touch- and pen-friendly display/tablet, at the moment, this is as good as it gets.
I originally requested to test the Wacom Cintiq 27 QHD because I wanted to compare it to one of the most well-known tablets for illustrators at the moment – the iPad Pro. I wanted to see how similar they were.
I really like the iPad Pro – it encourages me to be creative on the go. I use it when I go on long flights or long car trips (when I’m not driving, of course), and it allows me to do more than just sketch – I can make real works of design and art on it that can actually be used in print, on the web, and on clothing, if that’s what I’m aiming for.
