This is a thread to discuss all kinds of digital drawing hardware: non-display graphics tablets, pen display tablets, portable tablets and more.

>What should I buy?
State your:
>Budget
>Location
>Type (display? non-display? portable?)
>Size (in inches)
>Other information
>Previous equipment

If you have any additional questions, ask them.

>Recommended tablets:

Intuos Pro M - The best non-display tablet.
Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 Lite - Budget portable display tablet. Very solid drawing experience with Wacom EMR tech.
Used iPad Pro 2nd Gen 12.9" - Best option for a display tablet.
Used Cintiq 22HD - The only worthwhile large display tablet
Galaxy Tab S7+ - Good premium alternative to an iPad Pro

>Avoid:

XP+Pen, Huion, Gaomon and every other Chinese brand - Poor build quality, lackluster pens, bad tilt, struggles to register light pressure, horrible customer support and the displays are not calibrated. All Chinese brands are basically the same because they're all centralized. Also watch out, Chinese Companies are known to shill aggressively, even on 4chan.
Cintiq Pro - Terrible value. The drawing experience might be good, but you're paying way too much for an unreliable product. Dead pixels are frequent, as are black screens of death.
Microsoft Surface Pro - The N-Trig digitizer means you will always get wobbly lines.
Lenovo - Bad drawing performance.

I have a question.
If I want to be a professional artist, do I need a tablet with a screen?
>>
>>4999748
a lot of professionals sport an ancient intuos.
>>
>>4999748
No. In fact, many industry pros prefer screenless as it's better for back posture, your hand doesn't get in the way while drawing, and it takes up significantly less room
>>
>>4999677
They're fine for new artists and entry. It'll work and last until they want something bigger.

If you're getting it as a gift, screenless screams cheap to new artists, so if she's one of those, just throw a $200 screen at her and she won't know the difference.

There are no decent screens for 200$.

Came into the other thread late. Trying to buy a screen drawing tablet for my family member and not break the bank. Looking to spend about ~200, but will go a little higher.

I was mainly asking if the xp pen are good,
had my eye on this one.
So is it only one guy crying about xp pens or is a big split wheter they are good or not?

I was looking at this one: https://www.amazon.com/XP-PEN-Artist12-Pro-Full-Laminated-Battery-Free/dp/B07VZF7ZC9/

Watched this mikemegamega's vid where he checks one out and he seems to like them, the quality of pic is certainly about all I would expect, not going for pro here. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d952X6qEQU8

Hello, /dtg/, I have a question for anyone who had a screenless and upgraded to a screened tablet.
Upon upgrading to and using a screened tablet, did you notice certain tasks and activities become easier? I'm not expecting things like a skill boost, but rather, I assume it takes a shorter amount of time to accomplish the same things due to not needing to fight with the disconnect between drawing surface and visual feedback media (discreet screen), thinks like laying down line work, and being more accurate the first time. Stuff like that. And if that is the case, by how much of an impact did it make on the workflows affected by the switch to screened tablet?

If you're looking for a nice cheap pen display I'd recommend the Kamvas 13:
https://www.amazon.com/HUION-Kamvas-Battery-Free-Sensitivity-Stand-13-3inch/dp/B083W88L5H?ref_=ast_sto_dp
It's larger than the XP Pen, and it can connect to android devices. (In theory, I've never actually tried this out myself)
I've had mine for about six months now and I think it's pretty great.
>>
>>5000829
The only improvement I found was I was marginally faster cleaning up line work.

For some reason I spend more time fucking around with the initial sketches/composition on a display than a tablet.

It's not like you constantly fight with the disconnect, once you get used to it, you can pretty much pick up any tablet and use it like it's second nature.
>>
I've been recommended the XP Pen 15.6, how is it? Any major issues I should potentially know about? Any better screen tablets I can get around the same price/maybe a little more?
>>
>>5000913
it's overall decent and can't be beat on price.
>>
>>5000918
The $400 one, right? I'm seeing 2 diff 15.6" on Amazon.
>>
>>5000922
yeah the one with a red dial.
>>
>>4999708
thinking of getting a samsung s6 lite
anyone here with an experience with that tablet? any views?
>>
>>5000956
i checked it out in the store. The screen is extra cheap, the size is too small, and it's sort of slow.

I don't thiink anything other than a s7+ is worth attention. A regular S7 is also too small
>>
>>4999708
what non-display Huion is the most decent? I heard that some of the models have problems with drivers.
>>
>>5000993
Go Xp-Pen bro, their screenless options seem better.
Either a Deco 01v2 or Deco Pro. The deco pro has a newer much more pleasant pen.

If you want to go Huion anyway then select any of the usb-C ones. Make sure you aren't buying a micro-usb because I had some ugly issues with those.

It is sufficient if you know how to use your painting program.

It's very good. Don't listen to the chinese shill here- >>5000982

It's the best value display tablet. It has a small form factor, but once you adjust it functions perfectly for drawing. You can also use it as a display tablet for your PC with superDisplay.

can any tablet really beat ipad + pen anymore?
>>
>>5001731
Depends on how much you value larger form factor.

Unless you prefer a 20"+ screen, or prefer to work in SAI or Krita, the iPad Pro is the best drawing tablet experience.
Mind you, you also need a matte screen protector for some resistance. If you use glass, you have to start using smooth stroke features.

The schizo faggot who makes these threads doesn't actually draw. Don't buy into the tablet meme unless you do your research and have found a perfect screen mirroring app for PC - yes, that supports tilt, pressure everything or else you may get trapped into that ecosystem forever on one 2D app, because of that retarded schizo who has never produced a single drawing of any value, on an eternal subscription for the rest of your life. You can't assume you'll get cintiq functionality from an android or ipad.

Unless you are a 2D hobbyist who values portability over functionality, it could be a bad idea.

If you buy an apple or android tablet you will be paying subscription fees for CSP. This isn't 2010. Both apple and google won't let fake in app purchases go through. If there's no APK or bypass on mobilism then most of the time NO CRACK EXISTS.

And please note the computer cracked CSP EX also only goes up to 1.9.4 as well, though you can use the online for the assets store freely. CSP EX used to be cracked by the scene group XFORCE but they hate it when people hex edit their releases. Which everyone did for CSP. So they stopped cracking it. Then CSP added online verification which fucked up that crack, but a user had a friend who figured out how to emulate the license server and did all our licenses by hand. Then a retard came along and fucked it up for everyone. So there have been no cracks since 1.9.4 but some of us have 1.9.5-1.9.7.

You can get a permanent cheap CSP pro license for the computer because it goes on sale all the time, but EX is much more expensive and the most obvious difference is that you can have more than 24 frames for animation, the other differences barely make an impact. There's also been loader bypasses for pc made for cracks but so far the person working on it hasn't been able to make advanced pen tool settings and things like rulers work.
>>
>>5001809
Yes because you can pirate on Android.
You can also use superDisplay, which makes it work like a desktop display tablet, and you can draw with your pirated stuff on your PC. That includes SAI.

Look at how far back Kim is gripping the pen. He's not using much pressure at all, holding the pen away from the tip requires a loose grip! If you keep gripping tightly you're gonna get RSI

The fuck? Is the S6 not better than the S6 Lite, the tablet recommended in the OP? Money's not an issue for me but I still don't feel like spending a lot on something I might not like.
>>
>>5001955
Op is full of shit.
S6 is really really meh, and S6 lite is a piece of shit.
>>
>>5001955
If money is not an issue, why not pick up the S7+? It's the best of the Android Tablets there.

The S6 is better than the S6 Lite, but the S7+ is a better version of the S6, whereas the S6 Lite is a budget friendly option.

Also you can safely discard the chinaman here: >>5002036
He only wants to sell you chinese garbage.

>>5001933
>>5001942
I already have XP Pen non-display which works fine. i still use the pirated 1.9.4 maybe I'll buy it someday since it's a one time buy.
I wanted a cheap tablet for when I'm not glued to the desk. All the Android apps look like poopoo expect clip but since it's subscription i might just go with the cheapest iPad with procreate
>>
>>5002103
Nothing wrong with Infinite Painter.
Ibis Paint, Autodesk Sketchbook and Medibang are also perfectly capable drawing software.
>>
>>5002107
clip studio is the best.
Animation/ mesh transform / auto close gap fill / the asset store / the good default brushes. just the top of my head
i don't know alot about procreate but I think it's really good from what I've seen

No it's worth 200$

If it's being sold for 25 there's something wrong with it, dead usb port, beat up and busted surface or somebody was murdered with it.

>>5002679
you can buy it used or refurbished for a lot less on wacom’s ebay store.
from reviews even buying a brand new wacom 16 can get you a scuffed unit.

Probably black friday or near christmas, but buy it from best buy with the geek squad warranty. They will replace it if they can't fix it.

Yeah, it is. I paid $40 for mine a few weeks ago and I'm loving it.

hello guys, chinese shill here. bought this recently and it turned out to be quite unusual... no it turned out as always, as a mechanical keyboard didn't make me a writer, a screen tablet didn't make me an artist.
considering the fact that I have been painting on the screenless for 3 years and i really succ in the trad, it was very difficult to get used to it
on the plus side:
-a little bigger size than my old 1060 plus
-comfortable stand, now i don't have to base tablet on my poor laptop.
-tilt and without battery
-second screen
-passed the test with a ruler (top right).
on the downside
-more acidic web colors, monitor on the laptop have more organic colors so the difference is noticeable
-paralax, but it's kind of like everyone's
-even more wires

overall, I am satisfied with the purchase, at least its better than my first wacom ctl471 bullshit (fuck this shit)

How important are the buttons on the pen itself? I found a good deal on a newer Wacom, works good and all but the pen buttons don’t work. Buttons on tablet work, so no right click on pen.
>>
>>5004259
As long as the tip sensitivity works, you should be good. The pen button is a convenience not a deal-breaker.
>>
>>4999748
Do you 'need' one? No. If you can afford an ipad with pencil or Wacom S6 lite go for it. But there plenty of artists (me included) that do fine with screenless tablets.
>>
I inherited a Huion 580, and found that the closer I physically move the tablet to my monitor, the more my pen cursor will jump side to side as I hold the pen above the drawing surface.
If I hold my tablet in my lap, there is no jitter.
Has anyone dealt with such a phenomenon and, if so, found any workarounds other than using my lap as a desk?

I currently own a cheap intous like tablet, it has quite a lot of scratches, even when i have a soft press and change the tip often, do screen tablets are more durable or is that you cant see the scratches?
>>
>>5004687
"etched-glass" screen tablets are more durable than some removable and replaceable "matte-film-surface" screen tablets.
>>
>>5004687
Just tape some paper over the surface and keep drawing. I feel like you're trying to justify buying a cheap screen tablet. If you learn one thing from /ic it's that screen tablets aren't a solution, they present their own set of problems at the expense of taking more of your money.

No artist has ever said, 'oh I got to be this good because i bought a screen tablet."
>>
If anyone of you here have gotten your hands on a Mac with M1 chip please share drawing program performances/compatibility. Hardware compatibility like Cintiq/ Sidecar with IPad Pros is great too. Thanks.
>>
>>5004259
depends on you
i pretty much exclusively use the keyboard since my hand is already there and im used to it
just make sure the button not working doesnt cause other problems, i have an old wacom where sometimes it reads a button as being always pressed. though i can disable it entirely through software

You should expect a box containing a cintiq 22.
>>
>>5006454
... aside from using 3rd party apps with an ipad/samsung S series? I don't think so ... but you should be warned that there's a reason they only made one generation. Not factoring an issues with the usb port, I believe there was an issue with limited support when it came to upgrading android and the screen was not very bright for what you were paying (at the time). I don't know if the hybrid suffered from the same overheating issues that that windows cintiq companion did but I know at least that version got another iteration.
>>
>>5004259
Pen buttons are extremely important for navigation and colour picking.

Don't buy used or broken tablets.

>>5003701
I've seen your stuff on /asg/ your lineart is a lot better than mine.
>>
>>5006625
> extremely

pfft please, space bar and alt key. I work at a studio with a bunch of other artists from different backgrounds (we didn't know each other before this job) and I asked this during our lunch break. Not even worth a minor discussion of it, pen button use is 1% to 15% of use, 0% considered 'essential'. This is from actual production artists.

You know what is important? A keyboard. If you're a fake youtube artist who spends maybe an hour or two trying to draw on your screen tablet working in ONE application and think that a keyboard 'ruins the pure artistic environment' artsy-fartsy bullshit then sure, the pen button is 'important' ... you know, like that little teacup succulent on your live-edge wood desktop.

All of that shit seems like too much work compared to just buying a $25 license. But I know with warez scene they crack shit more for the glory then the monetary cost. If a poorfag really can't afford CSP they might as well stick to the good free digital art software available.

It's not like it's 2010 when the only decent digital art software was either Photoshop or Paint tool Sai. All the free alternatives were so god awful that it made you want to just stick with traditional art if you didn't want to pirate PS or Sai.

>CSP EX used to be cracked by the scene group XFORCE but they hate it when people hex edit their releases.

Why did people hex edit their software?

Can you order a custom built pen? I've got a very unique drawing style and the placement of my fingers is actually closer to the eraser than to the tip.

Honestly, it was ballsy. As an all in one at home, its a great idea. And frankly, as their first attempt at that, it was smarter to go big than try to fit everything into a space too small for the technology they have. But its not practical for artists who travel for work to have a 22 inch monster under your arm.

If it was a decent rig and they eventually made a smaller version, I think Huron would finally pull in front of Xp and make Wacom worry about that part of their market.

huh, i came here as a newfag to ask for tips on a new tablet and found them immediately
Very nice.
My budget 350 euros (414 USD), i'm fine with or without display as long as it's good and durable. I think size should be important, but huge tablets usually are more costly, so medium size is fine
My previous equipment is a shitty 5 year old Wacom small tablet, can't remember what it's called, the one with white ridge up top and four buttons

I was thinking of an Intuos Pro M, it's exactly in my range. Only doubt is if a good display tablet exists in that range. I don't really care about the display that much, but it's nice to have options i suppose

After doing some digging, the only things the Innovator has that's better is slightly better colors and it's thinner, making it easier to take places. Since I have no desire to move my tablet away from my desk, I'll probably go with the 15.6 Pro. I'm just really nervous since I've had my 4x6 Intuous 3 for years and honestly, I'm scared of screened tablets, but I feel now is the time to upgrade.
Thanks anons!
>>
>>5007817
try a different cable or connecting to a different port, see if it connects to your phone or maybe ubuntu.

If nothing works it might be a dead tablet.
If it works connected to your phine then it's something wrong with your PC or windows.
>>
>>5007282
I can't answer that. Thats a question for the company's support team. I don't imagine it being possible but there could very well be a button to just turn of the screen versus just turning on the computer inside the screen? But that seems too far thought out for Huion honestly

It's a artist pro 12, so the only cable is the cable they provided.

I'm looking to buy a tablet. I'm a beginner and don't really wanna spend that much. I have been looking at the wacom Intuos S/M. My budget is around 100€ but can be a bit more if it's actually worth.

What's your opinion? I see a lot of people crying in reviews because wacom pencils are shit now and they miss their old wacom bamboo. Also, I'm not sure if the difference in size between intuos S and M is worth for the +70€ difference, more if I'm just a beginner.

How good is your housemate at troubleshooting tech? tablets at that price range are prone to all sorts of technical difficulties not to mention issues like parallax and color inaccuracy and working area size, which are usually major hurdles of someone coming from trad.

From personal experience, someone with your friend's background should probably skip display tablets all-together and go with an ipad or samsung S6 lite or stick to trad media.

>the only things the Innovator has that's better
The Innovator has the newest pen PA5 whereas the 15.6 pro normally comes with the older PA2. The difference between the 2 stylus is that the PA5 supposedly has a better activation force - wether it's even perceptible, reviewers don't seem to notice it. I have the Innovator 16 and I like it but if you can find the 15.6 pro for 300$, I agree that it's probably not worth spending an extra 100$ just for that. I can't really comment on the Innovator because it's my first display tablet. It's better than my (quite) old screenless wacom intuos just for the sake of being way bigger. Since you are used to a 4 X 6 surface, going to a 13.5 x 7.6 should feel very good, the display's slightly bigger than an A4 paper.

lol wut? This is a terrible time to buy screen tablets, maybe you should do some more digging because you'll find that screen tablets aren't worth it right now. Questionable durability, color rendition, poor parallax, poor software. Calm down, stop watching so much youtube, and go back to drawing. Your coronabux don't disappear at the end of the year.

the pen is only different in a cosmetic sense, it's all the same inside.

activation force is tweaked with the tuning screw on the inside, If yours is stiff you can fine tune it by hand.

Non pro intuos arent very good. Tried one back in March this year. Pen is thin and feels cheap, surface is rough and bites hard on the nib if you want to do quick consecutive strokes on a single spot, and the surface area/pressure levels are smaller than tablets going for half the price. Wacom hates cheap customers, and they can afford to lose your custom if you get pissed. They mainly sell to studios with bulk orders.Selling "affordable" shit to "beginner artists" is only for good PR, they really will punish you for cheaping out. Even the non pro cintiqs fall short in specs while still being twice the price of competition.

http://forum.wacom.eu/viewtopic.php?t=2469

I have a cintiq pro 24 coming in soon, so I wont be seeing these kind of problems. But its fucking expensive and wacom are as bad as if not worse than apple. Im having to pay 80 euros for an arm adapter, aka a bit of metal that cost them 5 euros to manufacture.
>>
This is driving me fucking crazy, does anyone else have weird jitter on photoshop when using an intuos pro with wintab instead of windows ink? It happens randomly when i'm slightly zoomed out. Windows ink fixes the problem but its shit, I cant tell if this is a new wacom driver issue.

Xp-pen deco pro is precisely what you need

>>5013360
The S size will be large enough. It's cheap, good response, good pressure,good pen,some tilt, cheap, nice size working space. I don't care much about the buttons but they're there. The wheel is nice but sticks out. Doesn't have multi touch but you'll never use it

>>5013368
Wacom S is totally shit. Don't even bother buying a tablet at all if you're not going to buy an M or M pro, unless you want wrist surgery with a year.

I got my S6 Lite a few days ago and I must say it works fine, I'm in love with Clip Studio Paint and how versatile it is. The pen is really nice but it didn't come with replacement nibs and since I put a matte screen protector for that paper feel, I expect it to wear down faster.
Honestly it's better than an entry level iPad because it works really good for a low price, comes wit the pencil and if you don't like it there's many options to choose from since it uses wacom's technology so you don't even have to charge it!
The size is just right, I can multitask while drawing, the colors are superb and the sound is amazing (not that it's relevant for illustrating but it's a nice touch)

Next time spend at least a little bit of time doing some research.
The new intuos pro line are tremendously overpriced (as always) and have a printer ink design in the form of nib wear. They figured it was a stupid business decision to have a perfect tablet that lasted for 10 years because thats essentially losing a customer for a decade. So theyve designed new nibs that burn to shreds, but dont worry! Theyll sell you premium replacements!
>>
>>5014393
Oh I read this wasn't much of an issue as people say it is. But if it's true, aren't there any decent cheap off-brand tips available?
>>
>>5014607
There are, but the catch is that for a nib not to be burned down it has to be harder than the surface. And if the pin is harder than the surface, the surface will wear down instead of the nib so youll generate a big smooth patch where your pen activity is, surrounded by the normal papery surface. If that doesnt bug you then fair enough, go for the 3rd party nibs. Or you could buy a smooth texture sheet for the cheap price of 40 euros.
>>
>>5014615
Ah ok, thanks. Yeah the price for the texture sheet is ridiculous. A lot of people suggest putting paper on top of your tablet, what do you think about that?
>>
>>5014393
Hm, should I return the Wacom to replace it by an xp-pen then?
>>
>>5014631
That could work. I havent tried it myself but Ive seen folks recommend it. Hopefully it wouldnt have any effect on the pen reception
>>5014633
Dont get me wrong, the intuos pro will work just fine, its a great tablet. But so are the ones at a 7th of the price that dont have that meme paper texture that emulates the worst aspect about drawing (your pencil wearing down) and without the opportunity to fix this for free (sharpener)
>>
>>5014651
I see you point. Currently it's 2.8 times the price of a xp-pen deco pro. Do you think the wacom is more than 2.8 times as good?
>>
I’m a beginner.
I'm looking for a non-display tablet under 100 usd with a caveat of Linux support (drawing in Krita).
I was thinking of an Intuos S, not pro.
>>
>>5014860
No. You shouldnt be spending more than 120 euros on a non display tablet nowadays. Ive used an xp pen deco pro and it felt great, but It still had the paper like texture which I personally dont like. The rest worked fine and the nibs lasted far longer than the new wacom ones. I prefer the smooth surfaced tablets that huion releases. Look into the h1161, looks pretty decent.

What I dont get is, Wacom could easily justify the price of the intuos Pro by having the same etched glass surface they use on their cintiq pros. It feels nice to draw on but doesnt burn your nib. But, they wont, because then they lose your repeat custom.
>>
>>5014869
Get a medium sized chinkshit tablet instead.

>>5014914
Well it depends what you want to do with them I suppose. If you plan to throw them around the room then no, itll scratch up and break.

If you just sit it on your desk and draw on it itll last years. If you have to move it, transport it in a protective case. I use an old t shirt and wrap it in that when I need to take it to work.
>>
>>5014924
Hmm I'm considering a Huion 640p now. Like I said I'm just starting out and it's mainly for doodling a bit for myself, dipping my toes in the water... the active area being small isn't really that much of an issue with the non-display tablets, right?
>>
>>5014955
If you wanted to transition to screenless from traditional, itd be easiest for you to have a tablet whose working area is close in physical size to your display. So that a 1cm movement of your nib = 1cm line on your display. But a size match is hard to get, even with a large non display. That being said, you will get used to whatever you begin to use, especially if you have no prior experience. Your brain will just map out new muscle memory. Generally id advise to go for at least a medium, since on a small youd be stressing your wrist quite a bit.

Yes. You don’t need bells and whistles for screen less. It should be comfy. Comfiest you can get under 100 is the Deco pro.

none of them do, they're just fucking numbers that have no real-world correlation
the only thing you'll fucking notice (presuming you aren't a ham fisted beast) is initial activation sensitivity.
>>
>>5016107
Pressure levels won't make your drawings look any different, it's just a meme spec for marketing. 1024 levels is all you will ever need.
The stuff you have to pay attention to is stuff like line jitter and tapering. Webm related here >>5001602 is the latest and most expensive XP-Pen on the market, and it still can't manage a straight diagonal line without wobble.
Idk if Wacom still owns patents for their pen tech, but Wacom pens are still the industry standard for drawing performance. Only the Apple Pencil can match it.

You replied to Zhang, he's always going "fucking this! fucking that!" ( >>5016115 ). He'll recommend you an XP Pen, but it's not worth it.

Thinking of getting the Huion Kamvas Pro 24 since it's on sale. what are people's experience using huion's tablets or more specifically that model?
I'm already a screen tablet user, my current tablet is the Yinova m19u (i think) which I got back in 2013. It has a glass screen but no anti glare or texture so its similar to drawing on an android tablet. I've used cintiqs before in studios and at school and I don't like the screen too much. How would the huion screen feel in comparison?

Hey /ic/, I'm looking into getting a tablet for the holidays and learning to draw in 2021 and I've been looking into getting these two tablets:

Artist Pro 12: https://www.amazon.com/XP-PEN-Artist12-Pro-Full-Laminated-Battery-Free/dp/B07VZF7ZC9

Wacom PTH660 Intuos Pro:
https://www.amazon.com/Wacom-digital-graphic-drawing-PTH660/dp/B01MQU5LW7/ref=as_li_ss_tl?ie=UTF8&linkCode=sl1&tag=tabletunderbudget-20&linkId=4fac7c0ea884e444eb3ac0a5904b5750&language=en_US

Of these two, which is better? If none of these are good, what should I get instead? My budget is around $450.

Can you still use it on modern systems? I read that you somehow cabt use them with adobe anymore

Holy ok that's it I'll return my new intuos pro and buy a used intuos 3, thanks anon
>>
>>5016175
They work perfectly fine.
>>
>>5016174
Go for the Intuos on this one. The XP may seem tempting because of the screen, but as your first tablet, you should aim for something comfortable to get you used to the experience. The 12 is too small, so unless you opted for the 15.6 pro (also good) it would eventually affect your posture and comfort when working.

A screen less first will let you sit back and not hunch over the tablet to work,

Did this and got a good as new with package intuos3 for €50 including postage! Happy, feels good to do this. If it works anon earlier saved me hundreds. I'll work on linux manjaro and Windows 10 mainly, but far lesser extent on osx, let me know if anyone needs to know anything about how well the intuos3 works on any of those OS's

Well it's obviously a minor risk since the last driver updates were like 5 years ago for Windows, so I would probably strongly suggest disabling Windows Update if you're using W10 cancer to avoid accidentally fucking up your drivers which happens quite frequently, but I'm not sure to what degree it's fixed by Wacom and not the developers for the programs. Since linoox drivers are made by people in the community, I'm assuming that updates will be fine as long as they're being actively developed. And I think Mac may be a problem. But I think that it will be a while before it causes any issues and usually it's down to the programs themselves to fix things because I've heard that other people are also still using the older Intuoses
>>
>>5017005
i just want to see what someone touting specific products can do
obviously its not conclusive evidence of anything but im interested
>>
>>5017016
Not them but Wacom's basically the industry standard and iirc Feng Zhu uses an intuos 4. The only thing you have to worry about are the cheaper tablets but companies like XP Pen etc must be super confident if they send that stuff to extremely popular artists like Yueko and Ryein who then draw pieces on it and review it.
>>
>>5017023
He still uses the intuos 3.
You can see the stylus when ever he lifts up his hand on his videos.
>>
>>5017026
Oh that's sweet
>>
>>5017026
That guy is a fucking machine, honestly. But I'm certain that screenless tablets draw just as well as screened ones and you don't need to uh, deal with your whole screen randomly dying or ergonomics problems. Imagine buying an uber awesome cintiq only for the whole screen to die and then having to send a cintiq through the freaking mail or something to get it repaired like what happened to kawacy, that's a big yikes. And an anon on /ic/ found a way to fix it via some technical jiggery pokery which I honestly do not think I am even capable. And then I saw someone say on discord that their screened Huion died.

So yeah, display tablets are something that I just don't trust. And if Feng can draw that well with a screenless, I can sure bet that it's enough for me.

> they’re just getting paid. look into the fake/paid tablet review industry on youtube. disregard fake youtube artists, stick with what’s actually being used in the industry.

I was also there for the livestream that Yueko made of them drawing with it (just to make sure that Yueko wasn't a tracing faggot), so I'm certain that they actually used the tablet when they drew with it.

But the weirdest thing is that yueko and notryein are all/were major Fire Emblem fanartists so we can deduce from this observation that maybe if I get good enough at drawing FE fanart I can also get free shit from XP Pen.
>>
>>5017038
Wish more people had your insight. Most new artists think that a screen is a must but they’ve really only been viable the last 8 years or so vs screenless which is going on 30. if it was perfected you’d have a huge conversion wave, that’s not the case. Working artists are sticking to what works, screenless are ergonomic, you dont have to worry about color accuracy or parallax issues, screenless are faster since communication is one direction, and (at least with the intuos3) the build quality is top notch.

Twitch livestream. A few things you need to know about twitch:
A) They only keep the VODs for a very short period of time. I never bother downloading the VODs and sometimes they get uploaded to youtube or bilibili or some shit but most of the time they don't which means if you missed it you're fucked (and it won't even end up on cgpeers or cgpersia so if you like an artist then make sure you rip it before it fucking disappears forever)
B) Actual livestream is likely in an RMTP type format and they inject ads into the broadcast so if you want to watch a stream make sure you use the developer version of uBlock or you'll be fucked when you watch a stream and miss half of it because of the ads every 5 minutes. I keep having to write my own adblock rules every time I visit that cancerous site so most of the time I don't even fucking bother
C) The last time I tried to find a VOD downloader it took me like 5 hours and I'm pretty sure I literally had to give that piece of malware my username and password in order to "download" the VOD
tl;dr FUCK twitch and FUCK artists that use it
And the last time I watched that particular Yueko livestream she didn't do anything interesting, I think she just patted the line for like half an hour and probably went off to the toilet or something and never came back

yo mr twitch wizard man
i know this is unrelated to the topic but
do you know a place where I can rewatch old twitch streams?
>>
>>5017123
I think they just get deleted because it would otherwise cost Twitch a lot of money to keep up. I don't really watch twitch so I don't know! Maybe someone's out there archiving deleted urls like what happens with 4chan or reddit or something. I think they'd just axe the whole video as well as the url though. But try with twitch leecher or something? https://github.com/Franiac/TwitchLeecher/releases <- not sure if this program is really trustworthy but the last time I tried it I think it looked super shady and had weird UI but it seems to be all cleaned up now
>>
>>5017123
(cont)
I'm reasonably confident that twitch leecher can only grab what's in the videos section of twitch, that is if it still works.
>>
>>5017126
Near
Hopefully i could find some of soft_don streams that i missed out last month

He doesn't lol
that last thing he uploaded was a speed paint for the super mega podcast years ago
he doesn't re-upload his streams
>>
>>5017135
I didn't even realise Yueko was doing it with not her normal tablet when I was watching the stream, since they were just drawing it. Anyway, I wonder how many other artists got those tablets and reviewed 'em, outside of my little sphere of artists I stalk because I need refs.
>>
>>5017136
I feel like artists try not to stream at all or have it up for a long time in case someone reverse engineers a very successful way of replicating their drawing process like what happened with Shexyo and CSR.
>>
>>5017143
which one (tablet) are you talking about?
whats her regular tablet?
>>
>>5017148
She got sent some kind of XP pen https://twitter.com/yueko__?lang=en you'll find it if you scroll through miles of her twitter you should also find what she drew with it. I found what she normally uses, she posted it here https://twitter.com/yueko__/status/1205318691941838848
>>
>>5017144
Woah
I get it
also isn't replicating one artist a bad idea? its more preferable to use multiple artists as inspiration
and I have a feeling that Shexyo is just photobashing
>>
>>5017153
Replicating other artists is what I got most of my gains from. That's why Master Studies are done so often in art schools, because you can literally suck another person's art style and figure out their way of thinking by trying to be like them.

>I have a feeling that Shexyo is just photobashing
I think he just traced because otherwise your lineart would be pretty dead.

photobashing tends to make thing messy and then you'll have to redo the lines ontop so it's easier just to draw it or trace it first and then render it out I think, especially as the art isn't perfectly 1:1
>>
>>5008456
Simple, don't use photoshop, it has no stabilization.
>>
>>5017038

A screen tablet is a third monitor, and with 1080p or higher res, I hope you have a 2000 or 3000 series RTX card to power all those displays.

>>5017008
thanks dood

Keep your $30. It's not any good.
I found the drawings would often come out skewed, or missing strokes (usually because the way I held the pen blocked one or both of the IR sensors). Could not recommend. The battery in mine burst but good riddance desu.
