thanks guys! i'll be streaming again in an hour or so!
just thought I'd share this.
made my own 19" cintiq in 40 minutes or less. for 49$ or whatever the tablet costed.
obviously there are already how to do it guides on the net as most may already know.. but they complicate stuff a lot
- got my grandpas old dell monitor which he didn't liked because of the color
- stripped it so that there were only the metal-back of it left, the electric components attached to the metalchassi, the plastic pad underneath the lcd, the lightpad (made of some sort of plastic or glas) and the LCD itself + the LED lights.
-stripped my wacom, (really easy, they are a bit fragile though, and do not have the monitor or the usb on while doing this),
- put the wacom component underneath the lightpad, and reinforced it with the back of an 9x12 bristol pad (haha)
-put everything back together!
-experiment with the layering from the lightpad to get a good signal and made sure there werent to much electrical interference.
-use the wacom driver to map the tablet correctly to the monitor.
and again.. will be streaming later tonight, so join at http://justin.tv/fruitconcept if you're interested in seeing my approach to painting environments / doodling etc..
You sir, are insane.
I seems possible, and easy to do, but I dont think I could EVER come to taking apart both my wacom and a monitor.
Congratulations, cant wait to see what you can do with it.
How well are you finding that the movement maps properly to the screen? is it always directly underneath where your pen is?
Cool stuff man.
so its not flawless.. will try to build a more proper version later this month, cause this worked a lot better than i thought it would do, and I didn't fry my monitor this time (by being really stupid and leaning the monitor towards a radiator, touching the electrical components) haha,
Kommer ihåg att jag sett dina grejer på animate för länge sen
hope your new found invention works for many, many years. that's an expensive playground you're playing on, though i'm sure it's worth it so you can see what you're painting. now show us some work you've done with it!
I'm liking this one, but feel it is suffering a bit from something...I am pretty sure it is that my eye is stuck between two focal points--the rocky crevice and the grasses on the right. I think it is mostly an edges issue, so if you sharpen the rocks and soften the grasses I think it will all really click into place.
Anyways, it still is awesome looking. We should sketch together/talk again soon (although I may not be on for a few days as my keyboard is broken and typing by clicking on an onscreen one isn't fun and is fucking with my wrist).

just thought i'd share this since his process completely blew me away haha.
I also cleaned out my old computer, and threw some of the files i had saved in my wips/scrapyard folder together in one image as I was deleting psd's. Most of those are from my most inactive art-period (2010) some are from this year.. I bet you can't tell which xD I need to go study now.. hahaha also sorry if you've seen a lot of those already :C be happy i haven't decided to scan all the latest crap i've done .. yet
My name is Dennis Björk and I'm from Sweden yay!
