Working on building an ideal desk set up. Can’t find anything that can do what I want. So I aim to commission a craftsman or try and make it myself. Biggest things are L shape, draft table built into computer desk, back shelf for monitors to sit at correct height instead of propped up on books, keyboard tray that can be pushed back OUT of way of knees, and no table leg at the T to hit knees (crossbeam in back instead).
Oooo my likely.
I’ll admit, I got a “real” Cintiq after years of working on a home made one on a wooden stand… and I hardly ever use the thing because the stand it comes with is just so… awkward and less than functional at my more traditional computer desk. The closest thing I’ve found to make it “work” for me, is to tug the whole mess into my lap and prop the top edge of it against the lip of the desk (with a folded towel as padding for me and table).
I’m assuming that the little hingy bit on your Cintiq/tablet means it’ll be adjustable from flat to angled as you need it? If so, that looks like it’s really going to be nice! Good luck!
Fully adjustable is the hope! At least to a 30 degree angle, maybe 45. I’ve got an intuos pro, so it’s also quite thin and light. Cintiq’s look nice, but damn, the stand looks so annoying!
The stand is the Cintiq’s biggest pitfall. I recommend anybody who has one get themselves an Ergotron arm. (I got the LX model after reading reviews. Be sure to consider your device’s weight when ordering) It lets you reposition/tilt/rotate however you want and makes drawing a lot more comfortable
