(Apologies in advance for I only used Manga Studio 5 on Windows 7 Ultimate here, so if your hoping for photoshop or zbrush or anything else you have to wait for other reviews by other people that might show up on Bosto's Facebook page . Thank you.)
It was delivered at my home this weekend and as I was un-boxing it I was shocked to see that it was partially damaged on the top left corner.
Here are clearer pictures of the damage for the Bosto people to see.
Mustering optimism, I went ahead on following the manual and installing the driver and thank goodness it works!
The picture quality is awesome and the pen slides flawlessly in the screen. It is a real comfort for the hand to draw to.
But I still have to adjust my hand and eye coordination because the glass screen is thick so there is a big gap between the tip of the pen and the cursor.
It really bothered me on the first trials because I was hoping that the cursor should be placed like a point of a laser, right in front of the tip of the stylus. But with practice with a couple of drawings I think I get the hang of it. Plus with just slight adjustment of my sitting I can align my eye-pen-cursor coordination and it worked fine for me.
It also doesn't react to very small movements, so if I'm drawing the eyes or other small details like teeth, nails etc., I have to zoom in on the drawing to do it, which is not that big a deal for me, I can still get the result I wanted for the small details, but if Bosto could adjust this bit, it could save time in production of artworks by artists.
I did liked the stylus pen very much, it is a beauty and really comfortable to hold.
So I went a head and tested it for the kind of work that I do with windows 7 Ultimate and Manga Studio 5.
And here are the results.
I am not 100 percent satisfied with the quality of my inking work, I am still adjusting my eye-hand-cursor coordination here, I did tried to avoid using the curved ruler as much as I can but still ended up using them on some of the long lines.
All done in Manga Studio 5, it works well.
It still bothers me every time I see that cracked corner and I'm sad and upset about it, but as far as the performance of this machine has done with my first artwork here, I'm really enjoying it and I want to give my thanks to Bosto for this remarkable graphics tablet.
I bought this tablet among the first customers directly from the manufacturer's site: bosto-tablet.com
Thanks for viewing :D
