About the author

Mathieu Brunet

My name is Mathieu Brunet (it’s French) and I have been an independent film critic for the past 5 years. My passion is animation and I’ve been writing and making my own video reviews of animated features on my YouTube channel (ElectricDragon505), which now has about 55,000 subscribers, housing videos with total views over 20,000,000. I am the creator of Electric Dragon Productions which includes AniMat’s Reviews and AniMat’s Classic Reviews.

  • I doubt the Surface Studio would put an end to Wacom, and I bet they’ll just discontinue the Cintiq line. And that’s mainly because they have the Wacom MobileStudio Pro coming out in a few weeks (before the Surface Studio; similar to the Xbox 360 in contrast to the PlayStation 3), and I bet that would be a great less-expensive alternative to the Surface Studio, and the successor of the Cintiq line. Not only is it a tablet-computer hybrid too, but you can also take it on-the-go, like the Cintiq Companion and the laptop-tablet hybrid Surface Pro, and with the Wacom Link, you can also use it as a second-screen monitor to draw on, unlike the Surface Studio. And this is coming from someone who not only uses a Cintiq 13HD, and is hoping to replace it with the MobileStudio Pro soon, but also someone who enjoys working with two screens at once: one to do normal computer browsing, and one to draw on.

    Hi, Gerard. in my opinion. i think the Surface Studio should be a better future for animation studios, don’t you think?
