Hey everyone,

sorry I've been so mute lately, thing is, I have a pretty busy time at the moment (work, small spare time, you know the drill). When I come home it's usually straight to bed, maybe an Anime/Cartoon Episode before that and that's my day pretty much. So, sorry that I have not been able to draw much (or at all) the last few weeks.

Currently I'm also trying to save up cash for a new tablet, I'm not sure which one I'll be able to get but I hope it'll be at least a little bit bigger than my Bamboo. I have been browsing Amazon and other sites to see what's out there and I've seen Wacom's Cintiq 13HD tablet. It has a very nice price for a Cintiq, a full HD display at 13.3 Inches and I heard it's pretty robust. I have included it in my list of possible tablets I could potentially save up enough for. 
In general I have noticed a (fairly recent) HUGE increase in products of the Built-in-Monitor-Pen-Tablets (like the Cintiq) sector from other manufacturers, usually at a fraction of the cost one would have to pay for a Cintiq. Right now I have not come across a "Cintiq killer" though, they all seem to be lacking in a few departments to the point where most are rather uninteresting for me still. Either the resolution is really low, the pen has a battery, cables are to messy or the screen has bad viewing angles amongst other things. The Monoprice 19" Pen Tablet Display seems like a good option though, at only 400 Dollars and with a (from what I heard) more accurate Digitizer than Wacom's a pretty good value overall, it's screen has bad viewing angles though and the stylus requires a charger (but a battery charge is supposed to last a long time). Definitely the best value I've seen so far.
I'm actually glad the market is expanding with more cheaper options, competition is good for business and Wacom (as much as I like their products) have had a monopoly going on for far to long and their prices could be a bit more affordable. I think this competition is only going to lead to products with better prices and in the end, we as customers can only benefit from that development.

All in all I'm not sure what I'm going to be able to afford in the end, but it's always good to have a few options on the table to choose from, so yeah, that's all I wanted to say for now. Not sure when I'll be able to pick up the pen again to do some regular drawing and stuff (like I said, busy busy busy), but when I do it'll show up here like in the past. :)

Cheers guys! =3
