Cheap and Good(enough) Graphics Tablet 04/21/14(Mon)10:48 UTC+1 No.151474 Report

So, which tablet do you find good and cheap enough for an average man to buy?

I am draftsman and painter(not great yet), and i was thinking about making digital art.

Also just graphics tablet related.

Thanks for the answer, could you tell me if there is a big difference between intuos pen, pen and touch and manga?

I wonder if more expensive one is much better should I rather buy it than cheaper?

Get the largest Monoprice tablet you can afford. It's a very good tablet, and you'll be able to get the largest size for half the price of Wacom's smallest. You'll be grateful for the extra space.

Then, if you're actually using it after a year, go ahead and upgrade to an intuos or cintiq.

Well 9" monoprice tablet costs actually 20 $ more than intuos, and wacom shipping to my country is free so it is actually more expensive.
Question is: is it worth to buy monoprice tablet instead wacom intuos?

I was wondering this myself. My graphic design teacher recommended me the Wacom Bamboo, specifically because he felt more portable than others. Anything better than Wacom in general?

I always feel bad any time I take out my tablet. I feel as if my drawing abilities are lacking and it ruins my workflow. I can't use it effectively as my mouse and im not git gud enough to draw with it. Any tips for efficiency or how to draw with a tablet better?


Also my tablet is a shitty one that my friend so graciously let me borrow forever.

There is also Huion tablets. Really cheap alternative to wacom tablets. Features on par with intuos when you look at the pressure sensitivity and lines per inch(which is really all that matters asides from size). If you don't mind not having the touch feature and just want to use the pen then they are prefect. I recommend the Huion H690 which i bought 6 months ago. Hasn't failed me and it offers a huge drawing surface.It also looks really pretty.

There is a black version too.

go to /ic/ and read the beginers guide, then you may be able to use your tablet in a good way to make an art and/or graphic design

I've been thinking of getting a tablet for some time. My problem is, I've been drawing on paper for about 4 years now and the idea of moving the pen but having to look at the screen is weird to me. How much time does it take for me to get used to it?

for me it takes few days to get comfortable and few weeks to use it properly.

get a wacom intuos pro (medium, small is too small for propper strokes). It takes about 4 or 5 good paintings to not mind working on the monitor.

The real magic happens when it hits you how mutable the medium of digital art is. Something in the wrong place? move it dont redraw it, the wrong size or shape, change it! Dont get a line exactly correct? Undo is a button, draw 6 lines in 4 seconds and pick the best.

Dont get me started on layers.

Look up some of Stanley "Artgerm" Lau's videos on Livestream, you dont need to do what he does to learn from how he does it.

Also, buy a shit tablet and spend the next 6 months wondering why you cant do this. Buy a slightly better one and you can be pretty sure it isnt your tools.

I mean, try drawing with a 10c pencil and a 10c eraser... you cant.

Wacom (and some of its competitors) have good tilt sensitivity, which is better than butter.

> Anything better than Wacom in general?

Definitely, but with caveats.

UC-Logic tablets (Huion, Monoprice, Tursion, etc) have noticeably better response, pressure sensitivity and more real-world resolution than Wacoms, so they're better where it counts most.

(That also means specs like LPI and pen pressure levels are misleading and irrelevant, just like DPI figures on printers)

But: no tilt, eraser, or touch controls, installation/drivers aren't as simple as wacom's, and the product design ain't as sexy (the Huion stuff is pretty good, though.)

~$50 for a razor-sharp feeling 10"x6" tablet is incredible

I have a Huion H610 and it works great on Sai and MangaStudio. Precise Lines and Good pressure sensitivity.

But for some reason it works terrible on photoshop. At 300dpi lines are erratic, and there is a huge delay on drawing.

I'm running Win 7 64bits by the way.
