For our second “quick snap” post, I’ll be sharing my current workspace. This is the place where I spend most of my time designing and developing stuff for my clients. I’ve been doing web stuff lately so having a PC and a MAC helps me make sure everything works great on both operating systems. I usually do all my development and design work on my MAC, but if the project is more CPU intensive like visual effects or motion graphics, I then use my PC since its specs is 10x faster than my MAC :P And yep, my PC also functions as my gaming rig.
I also updated my workspace with a Wacom Cintiq 13″ HD to help me more on illustration focused projects. I’ve been using a pen tablet (Wacom Intuos) for years and shifting to an actual interactive pen display is just a different experience. It’s obviously much faster and accurate to illustrate compared to typical pen tablets since your eyes and drawing hand are both focused on the screen where you draw.
And yep, that’s me pretending to be busy :P
Sometimes, all of us experience a day where it feels like you’re too lazy to work or not in the mood to work. This is the reason why I keep surrounding myself with toys and gaming hardware. Some people say they’re distractions but not for me since they help me “kickstart” my day. These things keeps me motivated and inspired.
So yeah, I guess until our next quick snap post!
PS: Tried playing a game using my Cintiq lols :P (Final Fantasy 14)
