Yiynova MVP22U (V3) Quick review.I'm not usually one to write reviews for hardware or software that I use. There are far more qualified souls out there with more hours and probably more expertise than I have.Yiynova MVP22U (V3) Quick review. by Staticstealer
However on rare occasions I come across something that might save other artists a massive amount of money and time by way of productivity.
In this case I'd like to point out a tablet by Yiynova called (unfortunately) the MVP22U (V3).

I've been drawing since I was 5 yr old (maybe younger if you count the scribbles in my parents books) and started drawing digitally around 18 yrs old. I use a Wacom Bamboo Create and Manga Studio 5 for my inks. Sometimes I use Paint Tool SAI for coloring and occasionally Photoshop CS4.
I'm married (since 2003) to Aremke and own 3 cats. I recently moved to Cheyenne WY from Texas. So far I'm enjoying the area! I hope to get a new job here soon and make some friends.
My hobbies are drawing, wasting time online, reading books, watching comic book movies, and occasionally bicycling (when weather permits). I've been with dA since practically the beginning but you'd never know it by my page views (heeh).
Beloved Journal Entries About Cheap Wacom Tablet Alternatives:

While Cintiq's are amazingly cool, and so are their alternatives, they are still $300 or more. A lot of people just DON'T have that money. So this journal focuses on drawing tablets that compare to Wacom's Intuos Pro line.
