I'm also getting a Cintiq soon (hopefully).
Not sure what model though as someone's giving me one they've never used. O_o
Can't wait as I'm back to using the trackpad on my Macbook and it's horrible and laborious after using a tablet.
Let us know how you get on with it.
I hope I'll be able to configure the side buttons properly as I use a lot of keyboard shortcuts in Illustrator and I don't really want to be working between a Cintiq and my keyboard.
We'll see I guess.

Wrote a long post about Wacom's only to find when I "Submitted" AIF had auto signed me out and I lost it as usual.
Happens a lot.
Wacom's are awesome and one would make a great gift.
They take some getting used to but it's worth it and going back to a mouse feels like using a hammer and chisel.
Don't under estimate the base models like the Bamboo.
They're a hell of a lot cheaper than the Intuos and compare pretty well.
I started a new job and requested a Wacom and I was horrified to see they'd got me a Bamboo.
I was amazed how good it was.
Although a larger tablet is good to work on they can take up a hell of a lot of desk space and it can be a bit of a struggle having to stretch over them to get to a keyboard all day.
I wouldn't get anything larger than her laptop personally.

@pongo81 - sounds like a great gift and as @scotty was saying, even the new bamboo's are great value, the one I have at work, although I don't use it, is pretty good!
I just ordered a 13inch cintiq hd, should arrive in the next couple of days, I'm pretty excited as I never really got used to the idea of drawing whilst not being able to see directly where the pen is.

@scotty nice one, always good to see work in situ! I wonder what it feels like to be in a "fight team"...
A new one for me. It's the A-League Finals series, a couple of great games last weekend. What started as a sketch turned into an impromptu portrait.

haha @scotty aw come on, surely you don't get THAT much sunlight do you?
Nice work @birdbeak decent job after 7 hours!
I have been trying to learn abit of animation myself, like TRex, keen to know more about After Effects. I know you can animate in Photoshop, have had a go at doing simple things in that.
For my show and tell, another football player. Franck Ribéry.
Edit: Franck Ribéry Zombie / White Walker.. that is

@Scotty That was only the first 7 hours of the course - the next 7 hours are next Monday! It's pretty easy to learn, I reckon you'd kill it.
A big part of learning the programs is that they force you to use terrible tutorials with hideous assets. It helps when you've already got your own style that you can animate, like you have.
I'd highly advise NOT going outside. We had Ivan Millat, you've got Jack the Ripper - there's also other reasons not to go outside that I won't even get into.
