nope, I got commissioned by a local ballet director to design a backdrop for an upcoming recital interpretation of Carrol's classic novel.
I've opted out of trying to paint the backdrop myself, it's about 30 feet long and 18 feet high and I just don't have the time or mindset to attempt something that large (let alone a studio big enough to handle it.
I also am interested to see how others will be able to render it out, I'll try to get pictures when it is done.

I got it last month.
Downsides: -Does not last very long on battery when running Photoshop
-Screen is not very that bright and has some polarization issues.
-Drawing surface is not the strongest, already got some scratches that I did not expect to get so soon (now I'm more careful with it)
Upside: It's a portable Cintiq dude... I can draw/color/ animate where ever I want (as long as there is electricity)
Definitely worth the money, but make sure you take care of the screen if you follow the same path. The revolution is not gentle and some things need to take a beating. The Ax is a very nice tool, but when compared to the pen and paper, it still has some evolution to go through. Climbing a mountain on foot and and hoping to fully render out a scene with the Ax, is just not that quite doable yet.
