I just bought the Yiynova MSP19U+ 19" tablet monitor. And this is my first attempt painting a full digital illustration.
Obviously I have been saving up for the Cintiq, but after reading several really good reviews I decided to buy the Yiynova, and I'm happy I did.
After 15 years of airbrushing the 3 millimeter cursor gap doesn't bother me at all and I really like the slickness of the glass screen. There's no jitter and the pressure sensitivity actually works (I used to have the Wacom Intuos4 and I could never get the pressure sensitivity to work properly). And the Stylus is more comfortable. The only thing I need is to adjust is the colours and brightness of the screen.
But other than that I'm very pleased, and looking forward for my next big heavy detailed illustration.
