A couple days ago I noticed that my ol 12x19 inch wacom intuos3 actually fits inside the keyboard tray of my desk 0_0  Unfortunately, it was really unstable to draw on once I pulled it out. So I made some hinged legs for it that fold up and stick to the bottom with hard drive magnets and some steel bars that I had screwed into the legs. It made a loud "CLACK!" sound ^///^  But what I couldn't get used to was having to move my keyboard and monitor forward just to draw. I tried with it in the original position but it just felt so far away.

So I took the tray and tablet out and put them back in the corner. Tried using the 6x11 intuos3 with glass on top of it (again), but it was too slippery (imagine that hah!). Tried it with just bare plastic and it was a lil better....but the way it multiplied my hand movements made it feel too sensitive to draw anything accurately.

At that point I just got out some paper and tried to draw the same thing I'd drawn on screen. It was a world of difference! My lines were much more accurate and it was very easy to make the marks I wanted. Kinda blows my mind that it takes so much time to learn how to draw on a regular tablet and how easy it is to lose it after some experience of traditional drawing (even on a cintiq) again!

Cool stuff. The monitors look like they are in a bit of precarious situation. But I like the paint brand. 🐻 and look at those two boobson the left one 😉

Nice!!

Rockin the three monitors I see haha.

I currently have two monitors, I would like to add a third one, but I honestly dunno where it would go, my desk is kinda full, unless I have it completely to the side of me, but I think that would be kinda awkward to look at lol.

Also is that a sega dream cast I see? Dude I haven't played on one of them in years, ours broke unfortunately :P

Been using 3 monitors for a long time ^.^ It's the only way to fly!  You could always get one of these. I should've got one a long time ago, but I found some paint buckets and got lazy about it lol! It is a little weird having a screen to the left or right at an angle sometimes. Mostly I use them for multitasking, like having the picarto chat on the left, sai in the middle, and any references on the right.

I bought that dreamcast way back in 2002 ^^; right when this store was trying to get rid of them. Used to looove playing Shenmue and Soul Calibur on it! Ahhh...I need to get some games for it some day...and a GDEMU. I love retro gaming ^^ On your's, did the laser go out?

Dude that would be awesome to have, but the only thing is I don't think that would fit on my desk unless I altered my desk.

Here is the kind of desk I have:

https://www.walmart.com/ip/Mainstays-L-Shaped-Desk-with...

Mine is very similar to that one, but mine has a rollout shelf for the keyboard, and the color is different.

But I think in order for me to get three monitors on that desk I would probably have to take off the top section of the desk, and then that would allow me to probably fit that triple monitor mount on it. Right now I have my main monitor in the original spot, and then the second one is off to the right a bit, slightly turned towards me. If I added a third one it would have to be completely to the right side of me on that extra L desk piece. Unless I did the alterations I mentioned :P

Also, I'm not sure how our Dreamcast broke actually, it's been so long ago now. But I do remember playing a lot tony hawk pro skater on it, and my sister played a lot of sonic on it :3

Ahhh...that is a complicated desk situation there. Hmm...here's a few ideas: https://imgur.com/a/C8ILPGH

With the blue image at the top:
you could screw a door hinge into the side, then cut a rectangular piece of plywood with 4 holes drilled in it for some m4 (guessing) screws to go through and screw into the back of your monitor's vesa mount points. For the monitor above you could make a T shaped piece that screws into the vertical piece then has a flat piece for the vesa mounts. On the right side you could have a smaller monitor.

With the green middle image:
Same deal minus the monitor at the top and the left monitor is horizontal with a longer piece of plywood or maybe a 1x4 to hang off of.

With the yellow image at the bottom:
This was actually the first idea i had. The left monitor could be closer to the middle one by just shortening that support piece and letting part of the monitor sit inside that hollow area of the desk.  You'd have to move the middle screen closer to you or farther away depending on the angle of your left monitor. The right monitor is overlapping your cabinet door a bit, but I was trying to keep them all the same size, but they don't have to be.

ALSO! You don't necessarily need any new monitors or video cards. Another way is to use old laptops or tablets / phones as extra screens by running some software on them that turns them into virtual monitors that work over your LAN.
SpaceDesk for windows, ios, and android..and mac...kinda
iDisplay - for mac and windows, ios, and android. Couldn't make it work well in the past but maybe it's better now.
DuetDisplay -  mainly for mac for also for Windows. Not sure if it works is a primary 'display server' in Windows though.

The yellow one looks doable, but I would probably have to get another 20-inch monitor, I couldn't see using a bigger one.

I have a 20-inch monitor as my second one currently, and that's the one off to the right.

I could probably detach the L piece and move it to the left of the desk, that way it would make the desk longer. But I think my best bet for getting three monitors to fit right would be to take the top section off as I said. That way the shelves and cabinet wouldn't be in the way.

I may or may not go through with this though, I'll have to think about it. But having three monitors is something I've kinda wanted ever since I got this setup.

Also thanks for those pic edits, those actually really helped me get a better understanding of what it would look like ^^

" The yellow one looks doable, but I would probably have to get another 20-inch monitor, I couldn't see using a bigger one.

20 inches is a rather nice middle size. I have a 17" to my left and it always seems too small. Got a 32" on my right and it's too big hah! And a 27" in the middle.

Whew...good luck! Looks kinda heavy!

No prob! ^^ It's pretty handy to do photo edits of rooms you want to change up. No heavy lifting required XD

I think My main screen is a 32-inch, and the smaller one to my right is a 20-inch :P

If I were to get a third one, I think I would probably get another 20-inch or so.

Sounds good. It's easier to get a 20" monitor up into your tree home :)

I had about 3 games for it back when I collected games for fun. I sold the majority of my collection because I needed the money but back then I had around 2000 games in my house.

Oh my god o__o wow! You really had some money to burn! Hah!  Here lately, I've been wanting to get back into retro gaming with the NES, SNES, SMS, and Genesis. I'll have to get an old CRT TV too...ugg ^^;

I use to spend my whole paycheck on just games. I’d go to flea markets and thrift stores etc.
I quit collecting mostly because of that, but I sold my collection because I was wanting the money for something I’m trying my hardest to save up fore.

how....

oh yeah....you spent your whole paycheck on games ^///^
Damn that is one serious collection!!  How long did it take to you collect all that? Is that your game and computer room?

In my own case, I have nowhere near that kind of space. I'm hoping for a few consoles, a decent PVM, and some everdrives for each system :)

All the pictures are of the same room.  It took me about  Half a year. I got lucky  and bought a storage unit  that belong to  closed vintage game store.  Paid about $900 for a good portion of this

Only $900? You really hit the jackpot with that storage unit. LOL...and that's also why I'll never put my stuff in storage XD Really nice room though. I bet you sold it all for a lot more.  Just curious but what are you saving up for now?
NaughtyRobby

Almost $4000 for half my collection. I still have quite a bit left. I hardly do anything with them atm. Most of my games I have left are in boxes. Debating on selling the rest.

I still have an normal black and the green halo edition origianl xbox, ps1, ps2, snes, n64, Wii, gamecube, xbox 360, ps3. I think thats it.

Awwr! Not bad. I was mostly looking around for a SMS or Sega Genesis atm though. Mostly the older stuff XD. The original xbox wasn't a bad system.  Been trying to remember the name of this one game I used to have for it. It was set in this dystopian future   kind of like Mad Max where you drive around a lot and get power ups for your car.
NaughtyRobby

don't recognize that game, I might have owned it, but like i said I sold most of my games. I did own quite a few  Sega Genesis and a sega saturn. I recommend you try finding games on the Facebook market. I found a lot of good games from there, cheap too.
