Basically what the Wacom does is it allows me to start blocking out in 3D with my art director looking over my shoulder. It shows what the end point is going to be about a month and a half before you get to the end point. And for a concept artist that is huge.” – Jay Hawkins, Senior Concept Artist at Epic Games

One of the great things we love about Wacom is that artists don´t have to lose that sense of interaction that they have with their art, with their craft. We always want to keep the artist touching and being involved with the content that they create.” – Daniel Kayser, Product Marketing Manager at Epic Games

Tools are very important to an artist. Tools help creativity flow. They help imagination come to life. It´s like driving a car or a bike – it just becomes a reflex.” – Chris Perna, Studio Art Director at Epic Games

Integrating Wacom products in our production environment is seamless, it´s easy, it´s as plug and play as it can be.” – Dillon Smith, Desktop Admin at EPIC games
