I realized i just been living in a lie. Been coloring with the wrong icc profile for almost 6 years. Its because all this time i had a secondary monitor like 8 years old that ive never notice it. I just bought recently a cheap and amazing monitor 23 inches aoc, and noticed that my cintiq tablet colors looked washed away.
I asked myself why all my drawings in deviant art dont look like in my cintiq, they look washed away or burned.
Because of two problems.
I have all my files in adobe 1998 icc, which its good for printing but not web browsing, but the most horrible one, its that the cintiq21ux.icc that came in my cd was really wrong. Got the correct one in a wacom europe page, my cintiq its first generation, so new drivers sucked hard doesnt work.
Also warning for those that have same old cintiq like me, new drivers screw up the pen, cuts the pressure in half or gives weird pressure to it-, and worst ive been coloring with pen pressure wrong and color really bad.
I had been coloring blind. The default icc that comes in the cd its like 5kb, you need to get the one almost 500kb they are named the same, but its a huge difference, when i change it i noticed all my drawings looked so burn out.
Ohhh the driver i think worked perfectly for my old cintiq and intuos 3 its this driver WacomTablet_6.1.6-5.
Because wacom released a new cintiq 21ux it rewritted the files on top of this old one, so new drivers really mess with the pens pressure and performance, and its not installing the correct icc, so you have to get that file and install it manually.
Spread the word if you know other people with cintiq 21ux(first generation), cintiq 12wx or intuos 3.
Now i can see colors perfectly, after going to color manager of windows 7 and i can control perfectly the pens pressure.
