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 3 - Best budget tablet.
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.
Galaxy Tab S7+ - Good premium alternative to an iPad Pro
Used Cintiq Pro 24 - Big tablet for big budgets

>Avoid:

XP-Pen, Huion, Gaomon and every other Chinese brand - Poor build quality, lackluster pens, broken 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, Chinese companies shill HARD on /ic/; they do a lot of samefagging. Check out the webm to understand how bad they are.
Microsoft Surface Pro - The N-Trig digitizer means you will always get wobbly lines.
Lenovo - Bad drawing performance.

For non display tablets do people usually set the active area to just the canvas area and use keyboard/shortcut keys/etc for the panels and buttons (e. photoshop)?
>>
>>5208297
sounds like what most people do. why do you ask?
>>
>>5208297
usually you just set it to the monitor you're working on especially if you don't have a small tablet
wacom also has a precision mode that allows you to set your active area on the go if you want to restrict it to your canvas or a small area of your canvas
>>
Should I get an Intuos Pro Large or Medium ?
>>
>>5208365
a lot of people don't see any benefit from the larger drawing surface and find moving their arm so much more draining so it's up to you
whatever you get you should get it with a good return policy so that you can change your mind after trying it without paying extra

CSP fucked up sometime last night and reset all my settings, No idea what the Wintab and TabPC things mean, Anyone with a Artist 12 Pro know what any of this means or which is "Better"
>>
>>5208594
Both Wintab and TabPC are interfaces used to translate your tablet strokes into input data. They basically digitize your strokes into whatever drawing program you're using. Wintab is the generic Windows tablet interface while TabPC refers to the newer interface build in the system, which in Windows' case is Windows Ink.

Windows Ink is newer than Wintab, and thus has better stroke stabilization, direction and pressure, but sadly it gets overridden by USB mouse movements, so you have to click out of the program to reset the input. Also, it isn't compatible with older programs like Photoshop CS6 because it's a fairly new interface.
Wintab is very old and has some input lag which results in blocky strokes, but you need it because many programs (legacy and new) only support Wintab, like some versions of PaintTool Sai.

In CSP case, I recommend you to stick to the TabPC (Windows Ink) setting, since it's way more smooth than Wintab.

why intuos 3 over the other models?
>>

Affordable.

>>
>>5208741
But it has 1024 levels of pressure. That's pretty choppy for modern standards.

And yet that's what everyone used in the late 2000s and people still produced good art.

Literally a marketing meme. Means nothing. 1024 is more than enough.

The intuos3 is still used by major animators, designers, and studios around the world. It would seem that 1024 is good enough for pros in 2021.

Do any of you use display adaptors with your tablets? While unpacking the xp 12, I noticed that I only have one hdmi port, and upgrading video cards at this time would probably not be cheap. I could just unplug my monitor every time, but I've decided instead to buy a displayport to hdmi female adaptor. I thought it'd work out better than a dvi to hdmi because the dvi cable is fat
>>
>>5208794
i have an intuos 3 and ipad pro, intuos pro 2019 and used a cintiq.

it made no real difference besides the obvious differences when drawing on a screen tablet vs screenless... pressure sens is a meme, build quality is more important.
>>
>>5208215
Why is so hard to check the specs for older tablets?
Wacom doesn't even keep info on their old products.
>>
>>5208215
i'm interested in getting an intuos 3 but i wanna check how it performs first.
anybody got a video?
>>
If I've used a non-display tablet for over a decade and gotten really comfortable with it but I need a new device should I even bother with getting a display tablet?
>>
>>5210200
Read the thread. All the wacom recommendations are nearly 10-20 years old. Wacom themselves have moved on from those tablets which is why they recycle them on their ebay.
>>
>>5211359
It really comes down to personal preference.
Get a display from a seller that allows returns and try it out for some time. If you like the display keep it, if you don't return it and get a non-display.

I'm looking at a used intuos 3, but from pic related it looks like it has a couple tiny dents on the actual drawing area. Should I steer clear? Or would this even make a difference?
>>
>>5211359
> need

what's your definition of 'need'? I honestly don't know anyone that 'needs' a display tablet. I'd say those who do 3d sculpting are the most hard-pressed to believe they need it and that's not really true, they are just in a mindset of spending money == quality because of pc/tech culture. If I was a noob now I'd probably go straight to an ipad pro/samsung s tab. The portability and pixel density are good enough where imho they beat out a stationary large screen tablet. But I also come from primary a drawing and animation background.
>>
>>5212413
My first intuos was a hand-me-down and was a little fucked up like that too. The pits shouldn't impact performance but that should allow you to bring the price down. How much are they asking/does it come with a stylus? Do the buttons work?
>>
>>5212413
if u paint its not a big deal, you usually draw small anyways, but if you do lines, avoid it like the plague
>>
>>5212413
any kind of imperfection on the surface can be pretty bad. i have a few scratches on my tablet that i can't even see or really feel but the nib occasionally gets caught on them while going over
>>
>>5212733
It's a very cheap $35 with apparently working stylus and buttons, which still seems like a bargain. I'm on the edge of deciding to get either this or a new XP-Pen Deco 01 v2 for like $80 if it's a better investment
>>5212751
>>5212752
Thanks, I figured they were bumps, especially the guy says he can't guarantee they're not. Makes me a bit suspicious.
>>
>>5212726
I 'need' a new tablet because my old one finally croaked. I thought this would be a good opportunity to upgrade anyway, the question is whether or not a display tablet is worth it if you're already proficient with non-display

Ah got it. It's up to you, man. But many of us have been in that situation, myself included, sometimes the grass looks greener on the other side but then you realize it's fake when you get there. In my experience, parallax, color inaccuracy, poor ergo, and bad performance aren't things you 'adjust to'. After 3 years, I went back to my intuos3. It takes up less space, my back feels much better, my eyes are less strained since I no longer bounce between two screens (I mean, technically I still have two screens but they're side-by-side and I'm not trying to draw on one lol).
>>
>>5212761
$35 is pretty good. Is there shipping involved? If the pen and buttons works I'd go for it. If the pitting bothers you just tape some cardstock over the sensor area, easy fix.

Is there such thing as a desk arm mount for the Intuos Pro series? I have the large version of the tablet, but I don't always want it taking up space on my desk. I'm sure the lack of a VESA mount limits my options, so I'm open to trying a nonstandard DIY approach if necessary.

I bought a refurbished Intuos 4S PTK-440 about 9 years ago. I wasn't sure if I was going to enjoy this hobby so I gave myself a budget, and that's what I wound up with. Well, I'm still drawing, so I think I deserve an upgrade with a slightly larger budget. I still think that a display may be too expensive for my tastes, but I am open to persuasion. Technically, my budget could allow for a Cintiq. I know some people think if it's something you love, then no amount matters, but man, that's a lot of god damn money.

My current tablet only has 2048 levels of pressure and it's the small version. I was thinking a modest upgrade would be the Intuos Pro M (which is listed in the OP). It'd be a larger surface, two more buttons, and 4x more levels of pressure.

My computer doesn't have Bluetooth. Does it still come with a cable? Should I spend a little more money and get some accessories (I don't even know what's out there, I hardly ever read about this stuff, and I should, but I don't want to be one of these people who obsesses over tech and never fucking draws).
>>
>>5215741
how annoying is dealing with Apple products and moving files to my PC?
>>
>>5215786
My 24HD Cintiq still works perfectly, the only issue is the old cabling, and having to get adapters to the new standards. It's good to go as long as Wacom keeps updating the drivers.
>>
>>5210200
Yes, they do, they have the manuals and specs for all of their old stuff on their website.

Not very, unless you're completely computer illiterate. Macs and PCs have networked easily for years and years now. I use a NAS for my windows and macbook for long term storage, and I used DropBox in the past to share files before that. I've worked in offices where I was on the only Mac, and I shared files easily.

That's a different thing, that's iTunes bullshit. Straight file sharing? No problem. Apple doesn't bother to teach anyone how their file sharing works, but there's plenty of "how to" stuff online.

Do you mean notifications? You can stop that on both OS's. Apple is easy, it's all in the system prefs - System Preferences-Do Not Disturb. Or block notifications app by app.

Don't pay too much attention to the op, he has a hate boner for anything that isn't a Wacom or used iPad.

I just bought a xp pen deco 01 V2 and it feels fantastic, especially for it's price. (I got it new for 56 USD online from xp pen official flagship store. I converted my local currency to USD so it may differ somewhat)

It's a great tablet for beginners and on YouTube lots of artists say they prefer it to even their expensive screen tablets. I'm just trying to say that get something you like, that you can afford. Remember that this thread is mostly just the opinions of a few people on a very small part of the internet. Check YouTube reviews for a more realistic view.

Just go with your budget man. I went for an XP pen 15.6 pro because it was within my budget and I was dying for a pen display. After I had a Wacom intuos 3 large and then a Wacom bamboo for a while I knew a small tablet or display wasn't an option for me because the bamboo nearly made me quite because I didn't like the size at all, so picking a "smaller" and "cheaper" cintiq was out of the question.
I like my 15.6 because it does the job, I would probably cream myself on a big Wacom cintiq but I both don't have and won't have the money to spare for that.
>>
Let's say I get Cintiq 16 which is 1920x1080.
My screen is 2560x1440.
Will I have to lower my screen resolution to work properly with tablet or it will scale down somehow? Will it be comfortable?

Actually, pressure levels do matter, but not in the way you think.
See this shit? It's called a 'shoelace artifact'. This happens because the art software gets confused when there are way too many pressure levels.
The solution? Get a tablet with 1024 pressure levels or less. 1024 levels is actually far more manageable for the software to process than 8k levels or so.

In Photoshop's case, the worthless cunts at Adobe never bothered to fix the shoelace glitch in neither of the CS and CC releases, so the solution for this is to either buy an used 1024-level tablet or just purchasing Lazy Nezumi.

Ironically, this means that old-ass tablets are actually far more useful than the new ones.

Dunno, switched from old tablet with 1024 to one with 8000something and it feels much easier to draw with, but maybe it's because of other things.

Been doing digital for half my life. Went from an ancient bamboo fun, to a cintiq 13hd (hated the bulk), to an intuos pro med (can't get back into after using a screen), to a XP-pen 15.6 (this week).

Loving this shit so far, more than the old wacom anyway. Feels the same to draw on but bigger and comes with a lot of neat stuff. Being able to change brush size with the rocker wheel is niiice. Also cords aren't as bulky and shit.

Here's a proper test. I can't really consider myself a artist at all but there generally is no problems 99% of the time at all. If there is some bad lines is usually because it's my fault or because the brush setting may be weird for what I'm trying to do with it. The problem I can say is that sometimes there is some pretty bad lag after time has passed but I just cleaned up the tablet to lessen all the resources being used like anti-virus programs and shit so it should perform better.
>>
>>5219232
a test like this is completely useless, almost every single product in the world will produce usable lines at a normal speed. you should be testing this with a low brush size, drawing slowly and using a real ruler to see if there's any jitter/wobble

maybe but it makes the screen look like shit so if you plan on doing anything other than drawing on it I would advise against it. You get used to the slipperyness of it after a while.

Bros, I'm only new to drawing with a tablet. I've been using firealpaca like pretty much drawing normally, with the default brush, just doing black and white sketches to get the hang of how the tablet feels.
Now that I think I got the gist of it, can anyone recommend any good guides about how digital programs work? Like, custom brushes or colours or tricks with layers and stuff. Sorry if I sound like too much of a boomer but this is so overwhelming to me.

Post your nib. As long as its rounded out properly it should be fine. I use toothpick nibs and I've had no trouble so far.

I got an used Intuos 3 and holy fuck, I thought you retards were memeing some old-ass outdated tablet but damn it's actually pretty nice. I never knew I needed those touch strips until now, everything is so smooth.
It even came with a wireless battery-free mouse and some weird airbrush-thing.
Shit feels like it was literally made for Photoshop.

So my intuos pro M has it's usb port stop working and I had to draw with a mouse for a good month now
I'm debating on getting the xp pen 12 but I heard that you can buy a universal charger for the wacom's battery and use it wirelessly.
I could also just get a replacement intuos but I heard it's like over a 100 dollars so I'm hesitant on that.
Is it worth forking over 200 bucks for the xp or should I just get the charger for 7 bucks? Is there a significant difference between wired and wireless?
>>
What’s a good price on a cintiq pro 13? Want to make sure before I buy the one seeing
>>
>>5222011
The charger works alright, if you use your tablet a lot you should consider a second battery too. The only thing that sucks about the wacom wireless is thay if its 2.4g, it can and will be intereupted by cell signal or people and pets (or just stuff) between your tablet and the dongle. Sometimes just having your wifi card in or something plugged into the port next to it will make it shut off.

It's weird and it's laggy most of the time on top of that.

For FireAlpaca, your best bet would be the documentation on their website. All the youtube shit for that is teenagers explaining extremely basic stuff like brush size and undo button.

If you're looking for Medibang Paint stuff, Winged Canvas on youtube is a good one that goes through a lot of the functions and shows how to use them.

Really though, any program you want to use has likely got documentation on their website explaining everything the program can do and how to use it.

Huion h950p started fucking with me. The behavior is weird to describe, but the pen stops working randomly in very short intervals of time. Tried updating drivers, disabling windows ink, resetting pc, blah blah blah. Is it fixable or forever fucked?

Try replacing the nib.

>>
>>5223000
Can you test it on a different computer? Or even your phone? See if it still misbehaves. If it's still acting fucked, either your pen or tablet is dying. Have you ever dropped them? They're very delicate and easy to break.

I've had one die on me from regular yet gentle use after about a month, so even if you didn't drop it, it doesn't mean it didn't just decide to break.

If you still have some warranty with the place you bought it from or huion themselves, it would be a good idea to ask for a replacement. Try the place you bought it from first. Huion support sucks.

I got the S6 lite. After getting a case that leans back far enough to make drawing comfortable, a glove thick enough to block palm touches, and a bluetooth keypad for hotkeys, this is actually pretty decent for mobile drawing.

krita for android is still very unoptimized for tablets, but the keypad makes it useable once you map all your hotkeys.

When drawing traditional way, the hand always blocks your view of the drawing and sometimes smudges which can be annoying for some people plus back neck and shoulder pain. The pen display is similar your hand is always blocking half of the drawing, don't have to worry about smudges but the back neck and shoulder pain can still develop when hunching over all the time. Some pen displays have a function where you can turn off the screen and work as a traditional pen tablet however, a lot of retarded professional artists don't know or use that feature. Nothing wrong with using pen tablet, sure there is a learning curve but your neck and shoulder will thank you for it.
>>
>>5227955
1. Traditional artists use tracing paper to keep from smudging, and work on an easel or table easel set as close to a 90° angle as possible to prevent back and neck pain
2. Professionals use the same method with pen displays if they are smart.
3. All screen tablets can be used with the screen off as a regular tablet. Every model still draws power while the screen is off. Every model can be used with the screen off. If it is powered and the usb for cursor control is plugged in, it is usable.

My hand is too unstable for easels.

I've had a Cintiq 12WX for a long time (10+ years) and I think it's finally time to upgrade and go bigger.
I was looking at Wacom's site and saw the 22HD which seemed great at a glance but is no longer being made. Should I just go for the 22? What's the big difference between a 22 and a Pro 24 that costs ~$800 extra? And why don't they put physical buttons on their tablets anymore?
>>
>>5229302
also, how does it feel having no buttons for eraser/pen/undo/etc. right on there, esp. without a keyboard?
>>
>>5229302
No the pencil is an extra $120 new. You might find one used for $100.
>>
>>5229378
You should go for a 4k pro model if you're looking at 22"+ screens. The regular ones don't have good screen resolution, you can see the damn pixels and it's stupid. I believe the styluses have some major differences in function but you should look into it and make sure. Pull up both of those models side by side and compare the specs and capabilities.

I don't know why they stopped putting physical buttons on their tablets. I think it's to sell more shortcut remotes though, knowing wacom...

/beg/ here. I currently use an ipad pro (11in) and procreate while trying to learn how to draw as I don't have a drawing tablet.
However, I can't help but feel that I may gimping myself by not using PhotoShop/Clip Studio already instead. I'm afraid if I don't learn to use them soon, I'll have a have time transitioning to them if ever I decide to get more serious with art.
Is thinking this as a beginner stupid? I do plan to get a drawing tablet eventually. But money is a little tight right now.

If your system has a dedicated GPU then you should be using those ports and not your motherboard’s ports. The ports on the motherboard are tied to the onboard gpu found on most but not all cpus. If you have an onboard GPU then (unless the gpu is much older than the cpu) it is going to be vastly superior to the onboard graphics on your cpu. The motherboard detects your dedicated gpu and makes that its default video output source, often completely disabling the motherboard’s ports.

Yeah tried it out, it was disabled by default, found a solution to enable it again in the bios.
Gonna plug my main monitor and the Tablet into the GPU ports then and the second monitor in the onboard graphics port, nothing important is happening on that monitor anyway.
Should be the best solution if I don't want to unplug one of my monitors everytime I want to use the tablet, just hope having the dedicated GPU and the onboard graphics enabled at the same time isn't going to cause some horrible software gore in the background.

Thanks, my dude.

It's Samsung's solution to drawing resistance. Instead on the iPad with its slippery plastic nib, Samsung implemented a rubber nib to provide some resistance to drawing on glass, but it doesn't feel like paper.

You can either get used to it, or buy an iPad and get used to buying screen protectors and replacement nibs.

yeah i actually got really surprised that the nibs last a very long time, i have an 2014 model and, i just put one simple screen protector, it lasted like 4 years, then i just started using it without one, and yes they are an amount of little lines in the screen, but i dont even can call them "scratches", because they dont affect at all the surface of the screen.
Those are some really good quality stylus.

My model is too old to handle CSP i guess, but the new ones could do the work fine, before that my first option to buy a new tablet was 100% Ipad, but now it seems that buy an Samsung tablet is really a very comfy option.
Unless of course if we are talking about an last model Ipad Pro, those are beasts, but the power come with the price...
>>
>>5233185
i mean we all know that the Spen is perfect for drawing, and their only minor points could be in the size of the actual pen, wich is objectively small. But other than that, the only thing that the models lacked was to have a real high quality application (and i'm even speaking from the past, because i can use Infinite Painter, but i feel the lag in large sizes. On a modern Samsung it must feel great to draw on that)

Hi, need a specific recomendation for both hardware and software. Ive been using the ipad pro for 12.9 2nd gen for about three years already.

I’ve been using an app called easy canvas that lets you use your iPad as a digitizer. It’s pretty kool. To be honest though I’m so used to procreate I tend to just use that. My computer can do canvases more than twice as big with ease though so that’s cool

I see. The reason I'm asking is because the iPad is slowing down at really large resolutions (8k 450-600dpi). I was thinking of either getting a new 2021 iPad or a Windows + Cintiq set. How smooth will Paint Tool SAI run on a $1000 Windows laptop sold in 2021?

No, your lines are shaky because you have poor line control. Zoom in and use the whole tablet to draw single lines with your shoulder.
A small tablet is enough for smooth lines but a bigger one is more comfortable and better for precision, I do recommend getting the biggest ones people can find.

not sure..... I just look at anon's mother_hen_finalinked.png drawn with intuos 5 compared to Typo's kill la kill coom art drawn with deco pro. One anon sperged out claiming to be its first post to not look like the same op schizo saying Typo's art is garbage because he used xp-pen tablet? I guess this is the current state of /dtg/

Hey,being painting for a year and I want to go digital.
Basically,I want a display tablet decent/good,nothing pro but I can spend up to 800$
I'm an european from Spain,so I don't think that I will have problems with the shipping.

So,any advice in what should I get?
>>
>>5237839
Get a used iPad Pro 12.9" 2nd Gen or 3rd Gen. Best option by far.

Get a matte screen protector if you want drawing resistance.
>>
>>5237854
Being looking into it and it looks good
But then I'll also need to buy the pencil isn't it?
Because in the unboxing videos the guys are always with their own
>>
>>5237889
Yes. Sometimes Ebay sellers package it in; look for good deals.

Another good option is a Galaxy Tab S7+ if you can find it within your price range. That actually includes the pen with the tablet.
>>
>>5237900
Yeah that looks more economical,there's one in Amazon for 700$

Do I need any other equipment for drawing dig?
Or I'm ok with just a tablet and a screen protector?
>>
>>5237943
you don't need to buy a screen protector if you're buying samsung
>>
Is the 12WX a good cheaper alternative to the more expensive Cintiqs?
>>
>>5237997
oh god the amount of plastic on cintiqs is nauseating
>>
>>5238006
Yeah that's /dtg/ for you. Been like this for at least a year now.
>>
>>5237997
I've used a 12WX for awhile and it's a really solid tablet. My only major concern would be color profile - mine got messed up at some point in the past couple years and I don't think I'm in the minority.
>>
>>5238027
Thanks.
Would it be worth it if I'm only decent at drawing and already have a Intuous 3.
I like the Intuous 3 but I've been wondering if a Cintiq would feel nicer.
>>
it appears the op schizo does it for free...
>>
How badly do anti-glare screens mess with color perception and values? Anyone here use one before?
>>
>>5238077
Never used an Intuous so I can't really help you there, though I don't think the 12WX would fell much different (I think it's only the newer ones that have the special grained glass).
Thinking about it though you do also need to be warned that:
a) it's DVI/VGA so if you're on a newer PC you'll need to get converters
b) its resolution is 1280x800, so probably smaller than what you're used to

Honestly, ymmv with it, but given that they're all pretty cheap at the $150~300 mark nowadays it could be a good place to dip your toe in and test the waters.

Is the XP PEN DECO 03 okay? Just starting out.
>>
Is the Deco Pro (medium) a big improvement over the non-pro versions?
>>
>>5238324
Yep.

>>5238400
The regular deco pro or the v2? Regular is about the same, v2 is actually a big improvement.
>>
>>5238478
Hello, I posted both posts above actually, thank you for answering.
Right now I'm kinda choosing between
>Deco 01 V2 ($60)
>Deco Pro Medium ($120)
My priorities are mainly tilt, pressure, and size. Given this, is the extra $60 worth it for the Pro version? And speaking of, I can't seem to find any info about the "regular"' and V2 versions of the Deco Pro. What's their difference?
>>
>>5238324
Works fine for me. Having the option to go wireless is pretty neat.
>>
>>5238520
Whoops sorry I am a retard. 01 v2 is better than the regular pro. It's newer and they fixed some weird problems from the old model deco 01.

Deco/star/pro are functionally the same, aside from the v2 models. The only real differences you will get are the buttons and wheels, and if they have wireless or not.
>>
>>5238324
no chineese shit retards
>>
>>5238570
Thank you. I actually don't care much about the buttons/wheels, but I'm kinda leaning towards the Deco Pro now since I'm reading that the pen got some improvements.
Will research more, thank you again.

You pick up a used Wacom intous tablet medium size Intous 3 or upwards for around 50 bucks and stop reading this useless thread.

Cintiqs or whatever they are called and chink ripoffs are a fukcing meme.

That's kind of the beauty of creation. There's so much variety in it that human beings have to go through trial and error just to see what they're capable of or what makes them happy, which means exactly what this post says: there are gonna be cheap barely used tablets on sale from people who found out it's not for them.
You can do this with weights, musical instruments, pretty much any tool that your average normie would spend a week on and give up.

Got the opportunity to try out the xp-pen 15.6, and have to say I'm having none of the issues apart from tilt.
Pressure is consistent although it took a little fiddling to make it register light pressure in a way that feels natural.
Cursor doesn't stray from pen tip, at least not noticeably.
No line wobble with either slow or quick strokes, especially not with a ruler.

Having the same issue with the pen tilt though.
It's the same as in the video, whenever it get's close to the horizontal or vertical axis it jumps.

>>5239067
It doesn't really bother me but if it's really just a calibration problem do you know how to fix it?
Googled it a little and didn't find a solution, it seems to be a common problem with various xp-pen tablets though.

I bought a Chinese one because I'm just starting off myself and my budget capped at $45. I understand the tilt is shit but holding it straight will at least help with my writing I guess (maybe that's just a cope)? That said, being absolutely new to this so far I still enjoyed it, and if I ever manage to increase my skill on one to a sufficient level that I appreciate then I can probably get one of these nicer ones for myself for my bday or Xmas or something. I'll stay ITT to gain knowledge for the future.

P.S. I did watch a few review ones on YT and one guy was an animator who worked on AAA games himself ( I forget which one but you'd find the video easily by searching up the cheapest 6×4 non-display Huion) He definitely did indeed say he would not use it to work on his animation profession, yet he did mention that it would be a good fit he would recommend someone, say a parent looking for a first time tablet for their kid who is interested in it (or in my case a poorfag who seeks to rekindle his love of drawing - but I'm no artist, least of all a digital one. I'd be lucky to consider myself an artist with my shitty poetry - with a small budget, didn't suggest it in vid I took that upon myself). That said, he may have been paid by Huion for a good review I wouldn't know one way or the other.

I'm not even shilling for Huion myself either as I ended up getting a cheap 10*6 one whose brand I won't mention because I won't be accused of shilling, but will show picture proof if requested.
>>
>>5239200
It's partially a joke. Basically it's telling you four things:
1. Used tablets will save you a fuckton of money and generally work about as well as new ones.
2. Only get wacom unless you're looking for a tablet with its own visual readout.
3. Go for a medium sized tablet. Large if you exclusively work at home and/or just prefer large workspaces. Avoid small, since they're just a hassle.
4. Avoid Chinese tablets like the plague. Chinese shills absolutely fucking love this general, so much that it's in the OP. I WILL get an instant Chinese shill reply calling me a schizo or some shit.
One thing, though, Wacom 5 is trash tier as the USB ports go to shit fast. If you're just starting out with tablets, your best bet is a Wacom Intous 3, Wacom Intous 4, or a Wacom Intous Pro M North. I personally suggest 3 since it's a durable and solid tablet that you can get for dirt cheap.
>>
>>5239361
This, or get a Japanese XP-PEN.
>>
>>5239364
Just be aware that XP-PEN sold out to China a few years ago. I haven't and probably won't use XP-Pen, but if you really want to, it would probably be wise to make sure it's from Japan.
>>
>>5208215
Is the new 2021 version of the huion kamvas good? What was improved? I'm thinking about getting one as a travel tablet.

It's designed by Japanese, manufactured in China, same as Wacom.

And there it is.
All you need to know about XP-PEN is right here.
It was founded in Japan in 2005, sold out to China in 2015, where it opened its office in Shenzhen.
Now it's just another branch of the Hanvon Uvee Group, completely controlled by China.
TL;DR. XP-PEN shills are rampant here and they always have the same tactics. Look at the webm here>>5238880 and stick with Wacom.
>>
>>5239307
Normally what we would do, is go into stores and test them ourselves instead of relying on disingenuous (sounds like a good name for a tablet) reviews by faggot reviewers saying it's okay for beginners and shill and counter shill fags here saying it's shit but affordable. The artist 12, imo, was barely usable. It might be shit, affordable and okay for beginners, but it's not worth the money, and that's what's important imo. You need to want to keep something, and use it long enough to buy something better if you're a beginner. Not buy it, find out the screen is too far away from the pen, and feel like you've been chinked by Hiro into buying a pass.
>>
All you need to understand is that Cintiqs are outrageously priced because of the little competition they've seen and now their shills are going crazy when competitors offer pen displays for 50-75% less.
>>
>>5239494
He is. He also doesn't seem to understand what "designed by japanese people" means.

Whatever just ignore him.

There's no point in reasoning with them. They get paid to deflect, not debate.
This one is desperately holding onto the fact that XP-PEN was founded in Japan, while heavily leaving out the fact that they sold to China quick and that XP-PEN is now just a subsidiary of Hanvon Ugee Group.
