Here I am with my new Cintiq on March 14, 2009.
I’m drawing on the Cintiq and I have a secondary monitor set up with Illustrator stretched through both screens.
I have a second instance of the image I’m working on, opened on the other monitor.
This way, I have one big image of the art zoomed out and the Cintiq is zoomed in so I can instantly check what I’m drawing from a distance.
When I used to draw on paper I would place the art on the ground and climb on to a chair to get a distant view of the art and ensure my proportions were all true.
