What do you think about the turcom tablet? I have to buy one because my wacom capture is getting sent in the mail. Have you used a wacom, and if so does it compare?

I've used many Wacoms and lesser known brands as well. Honestly, the Turcom hardware was fantastic. Much higher quality than I was expecting, and the surface had a nice papery texture to it. Pressure sensitivity worked flawlessly without any hiccups. Having grown accustomed to the Wacom pens, I didn't have high expectations for the other guys, but was pleasantly surprised by how the Turcom pen felt in my hand. The weight of the battery isn't all that bothersome and may actually be preferred in some instances. As you may know, Wacom owns the patent for pens that don't require a battery, but I didn't really have to think about replacing it all that often (which says a lot considering how many hours I work on art each day).

The only downside is the driver support, which wasn't as good as I needed it to be for faster, more fluid creation. Wacom drivers really are superior in most cases and the level of customization in controls is where Wacom tablets truly shine, in my opinion.

Overall, if you're looking for a great quality tablet and don't require a large plethora of keyboard shortcuts assigned to buttons on the tablet/pen, then the Turcom may just be the right choice for you. The price is excellent for what you get, and I'd say it is worth a shot. If you don't like it, you could always turn around and resell it afterwards.

Hope that helps, and best of luck!

Didn't even bother playing it. My boring adult life takes up most of my time.

Based on reviews, I'm likely not going to be purchasing it at full retail price when I do finally have a moment to myself. The game did terribly, to my knowledge.

I think that some things are better laid to rest, but the dollar bill will always say otherwise.

There's a rumor that if it does well, Sonic Boom may end up becoming SEGA of America's main focus while the Japanese Sonic Team games are sold as a sub-series; any thoughts on that?

MylaFox Featured By Owner Mar 21, 2014  Professional Digital Artist
Well, I only hope for the best. I hope Sonic Boom is a success and SoJ can very well take a back seat for the time being. I say that because I feel like they haven't been doing the blue guy very much justice lately.

Of course, that's all highly debatable, but I'm just sharing my thoughts.

I gotta say, I've been looking at sonic boom fan art for a couple of days, and your drawing here is easily in the top ten, no top 5 of the best sonic boom fan art I've seen, good job!

I'm pretty excited for the upcoming Sonic Boom stuff. If it isn't too much trouble, could you link me to some of the other top five art pieces, in your opinion. I really wanna see more great Sonic Boom fanart, but have been coming up short. ;A;

Thanks so much!

Hmm... Well, I recall spending about two days on this piece, non-continuously. If I had to take a guess, it would probably be somewhere around the ten hour mark of total work. Thanks for the comment!

Hehe, thank you! You know, you'd probably be shocked to know that I used to spend several days on a single piece... Sometimes even weeks. I used to unable to create a fully painted piece without spending a long time on it... Up to a month of work! I'm glad that I was able to improve my speed since then. For some people, it is certainly a rough start into digital painting! I'd say it is well worth the dedication when you can see the results, though. ^v^

Yep same here! Work gets done faster as new methods are discovered and techniques are mastered. Takes a really long time when starting out buy when you start to get a feel for what you're doing and how to do it the pace gets a lot faster!

I paint backwards, as they say... I work from dark to light, building up definition and volume while concentrating on my light source(s). I use the characters main color(s) for the midtones. You'll get the hang if things after enough practice.
