Artist Nick Cogan puts Surface Studio and Surface Dial to the test

Culture
I'm Nick Cogan, I'm a creative director, an artist, writer. I've worked on ad campaigns for feature films like the Peanuts Movie and Rio and Ice Age. Today I'm trying out The Circus Studios. What's most important for most people who are looking at something like this is that it feels like natural media, feels like a pencil. Yeah, I definitely like the feeling of the At home I have the Wacom Cintiq which is a 20 inch pen display similar functionality to this. It's just a display, that's the industry standard. This is similar to the Cintiq in that I can tip it down and up. The Cintiq also allows you to rotate the entire monitor. Drawing for this is harder for me, than drawing like this, I'm a right handed. I use Photoshop, I use flash after effects on Mac. You obviously have to have a pretty high end computer to be using these drawing and painting tools. This is my first time using the dial. Going back and finding all the menus through this is really time consuming. Even just going back from color to brush and to toggling through the different colors sorta gets in your way, where there's probably a quicker key command. For video editing this would be great, for scrubbing footage. [BLANK_AUDIO] Trying to create some nightmarish stuff. And I'm not going to stop. I said I was going to draw something cute and I didn't it's so horrific. Let's just go all in. He's hunched over. I think the big barrier's going to be that it's Windows based and so many people in the creative field are really already Decades down using Macs. For me, I'd always get instantly confused when I'm on a Windows computer. [MUSIC] This is definitely a great tool for artists. I think it is really comparable, if not a little bit better than my current set up. As a drawing tool, this is great. It's a lot of fun. [MUSIC]
