Hiya - yes all sorted now, in the end I went to Huion for help (their GT190 screen is the same as the Monoprice and they make the drivers) and they were brilliant and fast and sent over several drivers, and made tweaks to them when things weren’t working.
Now that the driver issues are sorted I’m loving using the screen and if you have a DVI port rather than VGA it works even better and I found that even the viewing angle problems became much less of an issue too.
I’d definitely recommend buying this screen now, it’s a great tool to have, and means you have a screen to draw on whilst saving up for one of the Wacom big boys, if you still want one! Personally, I’m not that bothered any more and all the time Wacom are charging extortionate prices I’ll continue to buy alternatives.
If you get one and run into any problems, I’m happy to help! Give me a shout and I can go through all the things I know of to rectify them - I also have all the Huion drivers too :)
Just been testing out Manga Studio for the portrait photo drawing thingy type pics I usually do in Photoshop.
I can say this - drawing in Manga Studio is far more satisfying and superior to Photoshop.
Here’s a really quick one I did of Kaley Cuoco with ref pic. I just need to learn which tools are best for the job now, this pic was fun to do and took half the time than it would have done in Photoshop to get it to a decent looking state as above.
There are so many amazing brushes to use in MS and you can easily achieve all kinds of brilliant effects and styles. I love painting and blending.
I really love MS5!
Ack. This laydee didn’t turn out as good as I had hoped because I was being distracted by Dumb and Dumber on the TV. But at least I got to do some stuff this evening.
