[QUOTE]I've played with their expensive integrated monitor where you draw on-screen and it is fantastic! But not so fantastically priced-- it's something crazy like $2500. [/QUOTE] I have the original Cintiq and it is awwwwesome (and was hella expensive). They've since released a smaller more affordable model called the [URL=http://www.google.com/products/catalog?q=cintiq&um=1&ie=UTF-8&cid=15276798397149067325&sa=X&ei=PDR7TZBfjta1A5_elZUD&ved=0CGAQ8wIwAQ#]Cintiq 12UX[/URL] which costs under $1000. If you're thinking about getting a screen tablet, you might want to hold out for some of the tablet PCs on the horizen. There are alot coming out and they're basically the same price or less than the aforementioned WACOM products. The Asus EP121 looks very promising. Here's a head to head comparison between the Asus EP121 and the Cintiq 21UX: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HAZg9bEPm1E The guy clearly prefers the Asus, though as a Cintiq owner I have to say that his complaints about the Cintiq are way overblown. [QUOTE]I'd love to hear people's recommendations on paper. Not that I have much time to draw these days, but I can dream, right?[/QUOTE] I love cheap paper and pens. I like using cheap graph paper pads and sketchbooks (often with Shonen Jump characters on the cover!) from Japanese marts like Daiso. They're only a buck each, so I can draw as ponderously and wastefully as I like with no worries. If you want something a little more special I highly recommend the Semikolon Petit Voyage sketchbook. They're tiny, jacket pocket sized books with good paper that has some weight and tooth to it. They're especially great if you like to work with wet media (which most popular brands like Moleskin can't handle). What I like best about the Petit Voyage is that it's constructed with great consideration for its tactile properties. It's just a great little relic to hold. It's hardbound and finely textured, with the presence of an old diary. It looks and feels very precious as if its pages are longing to record intimate musings. If you buy one online, check to see if it's a sketchbook or a lined notebook before purchasing.
