Cintiq Companion Review #2 : Unpacking the beast. The packaging is beautiful. Everything is well cushioned although I was surprised to see the screen facing upwards in the box.
It's pretty weighty in hand but as I was handed the box I had thought it quite light compared to my expectations. So far I have no problem with the weight and carrying it around in the super soft and fluffy case provided is a pleasure.

The most important thing to note on the day you receive your Cintiq Companion is that it is going to prompt you for a windows key code. I was completely confused by this and almost ended up purchasing a key before a google search revealed that the Windows product Key is on the Charger! I was flummoxed that I would have to purchase windows so this discovery was a huge relief! Strange place to put it but, no big deal - all up and running and fine.

It does state that you should not operate your Companion in extreme heat or cold conditions so traveling with it in the car for a road trip to Johannesburg over the weekend made me realize I may want to keep it inside the provided plush cover as well as inside a laptop bag. The screen brightness is adjustable so I was able to get some decent work done as a passenger in the car. No problem.

Next review I will go into the screen and sensitivity as well the keyboard and some shortcuts!

Thank you for sharing your work here.  You seem to have an unusual breadth to your creativity.  Many people stick with one style and do it well.  You can pull off caricature, serious art, illustration and sexy pin-ups, all with a style and sureness of touch which is all your own.  A true talent.
