…and it’s a weird looking two-finger glove. No joke.
I’ve been using my pen tablet (a wacom PTZ-930) for about six years, it’s old and beat up but works like a charm. It was time for an upgrade though so I took the tablet-monitor leap with the new Monoprice 19″. I only just got it, so it’s still too soon to give any kind of review, but what I can review is the little accessory I bought for it and it’s awesome.
It’s called a Smudge Guard. I had heard of it before but I didn’t think it would be worth the price since I never really had too much trouble, not to mention I had the desktop to monitor tablet so I didn’t have to worry about messing up my visual space. I was so so wrong.
I’ve had it for about two months now (I ordered it as soon as I found out about the Monoprice) and I wear it for 90% of my work day now. It was a little odd at first, but after a day or two I stopped noticing it on. It breaths and the material is really comfortable, but more than that it really works. I never really noticed how smeary and sweaty my hand got after drawing for a few hours… sorry that’s gross, but it’s true. After a month of working with the Smudge Guard on my hand I honestly can’t work without it. It feels weird. It has become an absolute must for my work space.
I’m raving about this thing right now, but I’m honestly considering buying another just in case something happens to my first one. I love it so much o_o
If you work with a tablet, go get one.
EDIT: woops, the link wasn’t woking for some reason, it should be fine now.
