Surface pro is a great artist tool
Yes, nothing beats pen and paper IMO but if you work as a digital artist the surface pro is something to look at to bring your workflow to a mobile world. Yes, it doesn't have Photoshop (or Zbrush :/ ) pressure sensitivity, and the fix has been long over due, but there are other options out there that make illustrating jobs doable.
If you've been interested in the surface as an art tool you've probably already seen the Penny Arcade guys review, but look at this guy:
you will see that great artwork is totally doable with the surface and his contraption is totally rad.
Anyways, just felt like sharing.
