Sped up digital drawing process of a cartoon of a cranky stork on the Wacom Cintiq 22HD tablet.
Sketching, inking, coloring and printing it on a big banner.
It is not a tutorial but probably gives a fairly good understanding of the process.
Created by cartoonist Jeroen van Rossum on a Wacom Cintiq 22HD interactive pendisplay. Sketched in Autodesk Sketchbook Express 2011, inked in Adobe Illustrator CS 5.1, colored and finished in Adobe Photoshop CS 5.1, layout in Adobe Indesign CS 5.5.
Thank you for the awesome pianos in the background, Mr. MacLeod!

Hello , I have never used drawing tablets before so excuse me for me following stupid question
do we setup windows system on the Wacom tablet itself or we have to connect it to a computer with system ??
I mean I want it to ( draw , design , browse maybe , setup other programs not only for designing ) a total use as a laptop but touchable
I have a pen display (CIntiq 22HD) because I have a self-built PC which is much more powerful than the built-in PC's in the Wacoms. I think a display is the best choice for that reason obviously but also because of future upgrades. My Cintiq is over 6 years old now and still working perfect. The PC I connected it to has been upgraded a few times since then. Now, when I like to upgrade again I can put a GTX 1080 Ti and a i9 behind that good old Cintiq ;-)
But I can't sit on the couch with it. :-D
now i am very inspired.
I will get my wacom 16 inch cintiq UHD soon. I work with gimp. I am not that good and familiar or skilled with all those tools, filters and so on.
But I drew comicstyle since i was 4 or 5 years old. I look forward to let the creative impulse happen, soon my wacom will be delivered and i have to learn a lot. until yet I used a bamboo wacom product which is kind of useless to me. it just doesnt do the job and i have to do a lot more steps than it should be necessary.
I bought it here for € 1650,- at the time (over 5 years ago): https://www.cameranu.nl/nl/p269234/wacom-cintiq-22hd-tekentablet. You can probably find it somewhere in Portugal too for this price. At the Wacom webshop it's more expensive: https://eu-store.wacom.com/Product/Cintiq-22HD-S02
Oh my God, I guess I'll save money for this masterpiece!
Even my father is flashed by it :o
But I am not that sure if my art is worth a cintiq, I am still practising, but what do you think about it? I'd love to get a little bit constructive criticism! ^^
I own a wacom intuos draw currently, but i am planning to buy a cintiq or a Wacom intuos
I think your art is very good! It looks if it's done digital. So, as you don't have a Cintiq, what do you work with now?
By the way, I'm following your cat-instagram from my dog-instagram now ;-) (https://www.instagram.com/dogsdontwhisper/)
Oh, and also you don't have to select a linework layer in order to select certain parts, you can just stay on your "colors" layer and tick the "Sample all layers" checkbox on your magic wand tool. That way it will still only select what you want instead of an entire canvas :)
Hi Walter, that's wonderful advice! Very useful. Thanks!
I use different methods all the time to see what works.
I also color a lot in Illustrator lately with the Live Paint tools, that goes even faster but it depends on the kind of work.
Maybe because you have to lay it kinda flat to do that and because software like Photoshop and Sketchbook allow you to rotate the digital canvas. Sometimes I use it, it's a good feature to have. Like here: https://youtu.be/KXC8UTyssGA?t=2m23s
Congratz with your Cintiq! Nice feeling eh? :-D I have it for over 5 years now, use it almost every day and enjoying it still!
I'll try to make it up with you. Please pick the one you like best.

Let me know which one did the job ;-)
The best one is probably the Cintiq 27 QHD Touch. But I have no personal experience with it. I'm still using this one.
You can compare them here if you like: http://www.wacom.com/en-us/products/pen-displays
Great video, love the drawing! I was considering getting a Mobile Studio Pro 16 ($4000!!) But this is about half the price. Do you think 22HD is a better choice? I know it's not portable but I was thinking maybe the bigger screen size and better price might be worth it.
I don't know if it is a better choice but I know the Cintiq 22HD is one awesome piece of equipment! :-) I have it for over 4 1/2 years now and enjoy it every day. Keep in mind that the 22HD has no built-in computer, so you need a PC to connect it to.
Hi, thanks! Just making a selection with the magic wand tool and then brushing with a wide soft brush, first with black for the shadows and after that with white for the highlights. I always hide the "marching ants" selection lines with CTRL-H, that's why you don't see them while I'm brushing.
dude,i have a wacom tablet in which u move the pen on the tablet and the drawing appears on the screen .The tablet is quarter the size of the screen, can u put a video of you drawing using something like that?
I have a tablet but i cant draw? every time i draw, a small type of note pad pops up and i draw. no tools and anything. and it exits at random times. i tried to use an app aka alpaca app drawing thingi. I dont know how to connect the tab to the app? Can you help pls?
my daughter likes to draw a lot she is 12 yrs. I like the system you use , how much it cost and if is any suggestions where to buy it . but if is expensive do you know other cheap version? thanks you have a lot talent
Hi, this is the Wacom Cintiq 22HD: https://us-store.wacom.com/Product/Cintiq-22HD#/undefined1 There are cheaper alternatives who look like it, like this one: http://www.xp-pen.com/goods/show/id/11.html There are some differences like batteries in the pen and the absence of express keys. Just compare the specs and see if the difference in price is worth the difference in specs. Oh, and you need a good PC or Mac. These are not stand alone machines.
This one does need a computer. It's a screen and an input device in one. The Companion 2 has a built-in computer: https://www.google.nl/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=1&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=0ahUKEwjF7smQotjTAhVSZ1AKHVHjCOMQFgiAATAA&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwacom.com%2Fen-us%2Fproducts%2Fpen-displays%2Fcintiq-companion-2&usg=AFQjCNG3PSjvoqggyeombht7htmFkbCFiw&sig2=1kM3M2A2soEIaX-toDOm8A
Have you seen my latest video? The Making of a funny little children's book about a puppy!

In this video: Sketched in Autodesk Sketchbook Express 2011, inked in Adobe Illustrator CS 5.1, colored and finished in Adobe Photoshop CS 5.1, layout in Adobe Indesign CS 5.5. (it's in the description). Nowadays I use the CC versions of Illustrator and Photoshop and I traded Sketchbook for Mischief.
You can sketch on the device also. Software like Mischief is perfect for that: https://www.madewithmischief.com/
But you can also choose to sketch on paper, scan it, import it and put it on a seperate layer.
I guess so. If you got a bright white background the screen displays as much light as a light pad but that would make it a very expensive light pad and is a little unnecessary. You can put a sketch or image on a layer below your drawing layer in your drawing software. Much more convenient.
With an Intuos you draw directly but you don't draw on the screen, you draw on the tablet which is in front of you while you see what you do on a separate screen. A Cintiq, like I use in my video is a tablet and screen in one.
Every device has its own pen, you can't just switch between them (sometimes not even within the same company).
But since Wacom is the most popular, other try to copy as much from them as they can, having nearly the same looking pen (e.g. the nib being a bit longer)
Do you mean how I download the software I use? I have a subscribtion to the Adobe Creative Cloud: https://creative.adobe.com/plans
Tip of the week: Just for drawing this is a nice program for a real nice price: www.madewithmischief.com And there's even a free version.
Yaroon's Cartoons , can You please tell me the Basic equipments and applications used on this video, I mean...computer Basics performence recommended and specification, application name...type of screen etc.
Hi Dostaly, the used software and screen are mentioned in the description under the video. The specs of the PC I used at the time were: Intel Core 2 Quad Q9550, AMD Radeon HD 6850, 8GB RAM, Windows Vista 64 bit. But what's recommended depends on the work you want to do with it. If you like to make large Photoshop files you 're gonna need a lot of RAM. A good graphics card and processor make everything run smoother. So, the faster your PC, the better but you 'll be able to use it with a basic PC too.
The good news is this video is already over 3 years old. At the time I made this drawing this was called a pretty heavy PC but PC's with comparable specs are kind of mid-range nowadays.
Great tutorial, it would be really helpful if you could cover the brush settings and/or help create the various brushes used in digital drawing, e.g for outlines, solid fills, effects like watercolor in AI or Ps. If we can have a tutorial on that, it would really help. Cheers !!
+Ankur Golwa Thank you for your compliments and the tip. An extensive tutorial on brushes and settings is not a bad idea... I might actually do that some day. In the mean time, have you seen this one? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yA9j0F4Z8bg
+Cicicybeargirl 1012 Yes, it's like a monitor and tablet in one. You have to connect a monitor cable and a USb cable to your PC or Mac. There is however a version which is also a PC, The Companion: http://www.wacom.com/en-us/products/pen-displays/cintiq-companion-2
+SuperShrooms Depends on what you prefer. You can start with an Wacom Intuos tablet which are just pressure sensitive tablets without a screen. These come in different sizes and prices: http://www.wacom.com/en-us/products/pen-tablets
The Wacom Cintiques come in different sizes too and with or without touch functionality: http://www.wacom.com/en-us/products/pen-displays The one I use in this video is the Cintiq 22HD without touch functionality. And you can always look for a cheaper brand like Huion or so. I know Wacom is very good but unfortunately I can't tell you anything about the quality of the other brands that are out there so you might wanna look up some reviews before purchasing one.
Yes the bamboo is what I have right now. It actually makes me mad trying to draw on it. LOL It seems like everybody else I see online has got used to it except for me. They get to save a bit more money using it over a cintiq but it drives me crazy. I seriously want to throw it.
+FireBomberBassist I know what you mean. I had a Bamboo tablet before this one. I found that digitally drawing had a lot of benefits once I tried it out. Especially inking in Illustrator instead of with a real brush and Indian ink. But I couldn't - correction - wanted to get used to the drawing on my desk while looking at the screen before me. I found it too awkward, just like you. And I got lost every time I rotated the tablet like I often do when I'm drawing on paper. That's why it didn't took long before I bought the Cintiq.
The only little thing you might have to get used to is that there is some space between your "paper" and the tip of your pen from the plexiglass screen. But that probably won't bother you very long. I don't even notice it anymore.
I think you 'll love the Cintiq!
That answered my question. I can only seem to draw on paper well. I have a wacom tablet that is just a little square pad and pen, have to look at the screen while I draw it feels awkward as hell for me. I'm considering purchasing one of these. :D
+FireBomberBassist You mean a tablet like an iPad or so? You can't compare it. With this it's just the pen that's drawing so you can rest your hand on the screen. And the tip of the pen is pressure sensitive so it feels very natural. This thing feels as natural as pen and paper, but only the best pen and the best paper you can get ;-)
Your cartoons are absolutely lovely. Can I ask why you don't use Photoshop for sketching also? Does Sketchbook feels more natural or what? I am starting on the art rows, i have tested Photoshop but i don;t feel very comfortable with it and I looking for alternatives. Great stuff
+Ciprian Amarandei Hi Ciprian. Thank you for your compliments! Yes, I think Sketchbook feels more natural for sketching. Or, not necessarily more natural but certainly better/nicer. I love Photoshop but even with special brush sets, it's not the best choice for sketching, at least for me it's not. For coloring, especiallly airbrush effects it's great because of it's airbrush tools and many ways of making selections, masks, lots of layers etc.
Recently, I started using Mischief for sketching instead of Sketchbook. It's vector based and got a really nice feel to it.
I am using it here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y13ZcY7o0hA and I have made all the drawings in this short animation with it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=COFKRwpaCdw
It's definitely worth a try. It's cheap, they have a 15 day trial available and there is also a free version. I think you 'll like it.(No, I am not a shareholder ;-) )
