My name's Ian O'Neill, but most people know me as EzJedi. I'm a digital artist from the UK who loves all things 80's, geeky and gamer. I'm also a pretty nifty cook and I like to stare up at the stars as much as possible! My girlfriend tells me I'm a man-child. I proudly and wholeheartedly agree.:D

I'm a super friendly all round nice guy (as long as my chai batteries are near full and it's not a Monday) and I'll always help a fellow DA'er if I can, so feel free to comment or ask me anything. Except what colour underwear I'm wearing. That would be weird.;)

In case you couldn't tell, I consider myself to be quite funny. Nobody else does...:shrug:

See more on my Tumblr.

Well well, it's officially dark at my desk. Hello winter, you sneaky minx! XD

Trying a new way of showing my work in progress through the feed.

Crappy quality screen grab of what I'm currently working on. My intergalactic barman for autodesk-sketchbook #Drawtober... I forget which day...

Gotta clean this sucker up!

I really need a premium membership so I can post media in these:(

Goddamned art thieves really wind me up! Do people have no fricking respect or morals?! Oooh I'm agitated. Somebody tell me how to make a real angry emoticon quick #shakingmyfist
To say it's been a trying week would be a massive under exaggeration. Finally, the end is nigh (in a non-post-apocalyptic sense obviously) #thankgoditsfriday Who knows, maybe I'll even get a Drawtober challenge done despite my 50% goal being obliterated by frustrating distractions this week. :(

Dunno if anyone actually looks at their feed, but it feels good to vent here regardless! XD
So we're nearly halfway through this epic month of 'tober challenges! How are you all doing? More importantly, are you having fun? Learning something new? Pushing yourself? Feel free to add your thoughts in the comments.

It's been a mixed bag for me. I'm devoting as much time as i can spare between real life and sleep to trying to achieve my goal of more than 50% of Drawtober submissions this year. Which is gonna be tough taking into account my curve so far... But I'm determined to make it, even if I have to just submit sketches to pad it out!:D

Sadly my Inktober efforts have been...well a complete failure to launch really.:ashamed: I started out getting the first few days done, then as soon as I got busy it was the first domino to fall. Once you've missed a few the motivation to try and catch up, or hell, even just plain keep up tends to quickly fade. Who knows, maybe I'll pick it back up at the halfway milestone and go for the half marathon... What I did learn though, is that my traditional drawing and inking skills have fallen by the wayside in stark contrast to working digitally. Even working on my Samsung Note feels way behind working on the Cintiq these days, like a completely different process! Ah well, something to work on eh?

Right, keep up the hard work 'tober people! Stay strong and ye shall acquire the powers to slay thy demon, the one who calleth himself October!!! I'm off to carry on trying to finish one of my slightly late (ahem, exaggeration much) Drawtober pieces! Check out all the awesome entries so far at autodesk-sketchbook !:thumbsup:

I currently have a wacom cintiq 12wx, which is one of the slightly older ranges. Hope that helps! ;)

Thanks! Sorry one more question how much did you buy it for?

I'm not sure as it was bought as a present. However I believe the 13hd that replaced it is about £750 here in the uk. I'd definitely recommend you go for a newer model, as the 12wx is great but it's screen coating is thought to be inferior to newer models from what I've heard. It has a kind of anti glare crystalline look and scratches more easily apparently. I can't comment as I've never used any other, but I do have a couple of small scratches which frustrate me no end!

I'll say this though-if you're set on getting a cintiq for sure, stretch to a bigger screen model if at all possible. I'd love to trade up to a 21 or 24 incher, but I just can't justify the expense right now when I have a working healthy tablet already! Either way, it was a major game changer for me. I'd try before you buy, but personally I can't imagine working without it now!;)
