This year Wacom has produced a variety of digital age tools for the modern hobbyist, artist and professional. For example, the Intuos Manga Digital Pen is Wacom’s offering for the manga crowd who illustrate impressions of characters with a bit of realism and exaggeration, in the way of Sailor Moon, Escaflowne, Gundam, Polar Bear Cafe and many more popular animation series sprouting from the east.
If you enjoy animating or copying characters from animated films like Mononoke, Howl’s Moving Castle and Spirited Away – then perhaps the consumer-priced Intuos Manga Digital pen is a good match for your artistic endeavors.
This little but versatile and easy to use Wacom digital pen comes in:
- Silver or black
- 8.3-by-7.0 inches tablet size and bigger
- With a smooth and partly textured surface and slim profile
- Optional accessory for wireless drawing using the Wacom Wireless Accessory Kit.
You can pinch, drag and zoom with the tablet using touches. And even if you’re left handed, this digital pen and tablet has you covered.
Also Wacom’s including a 24 month trial of Celsys Clip Studio Paint Pro so you don’t have to seek out software for your manga and animation needs. Just use the trial version and opt out when its over if you find a better alternative, like Photoshop, Corel or even freeware GIMP.
Lastly, Wacom encourages artists to share their manga using the hashtag #madewithwacom and if selected, your artwork may be featured on their website, Wacom.com
The price tag is $99.95, a far cry from the pricier and feature-bursting monitor-sized tablets available to professionals, but affordable enough that one could create some serious manga art without feeling pinched in these uncertain economic times.
