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

If you have any additional questions, ask them.

>Recommended tablets:

Intuos 3 - Best screenless tablet. Look for one on Craigslist or Ebay.
Intuos 4, 5 & Pro - Also good options. Will burn through your nibs.
Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 Lite - Budget portable display tablet. Very solid drawing experience with Wacom EMR tech, but a small 10.4" display area.
Used iPad Pro 2nd Gen 12.9" - Best option for a 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, 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. Check out the webm to understand how bad they are. Also watch out, Chinese companies shill HARD on /ic/; they do a lot of samefagging and frequently hurl personal insults.
Microsoft Surface Pro - The N-Trig digitizer means you will always get wobbly lines.
Lenovo - Bad drawing performance because they're not designed with art in mind.
Cintiqs & other desktop display tablets - Overpriced, prone to problems and will lead to back posture issues.
iPads (brand new)
iMacs and Macbooks - Never buy this garbage under any circumstance. It's a locked ecosystem with rubbish hardware you can't upgrade.

reminder if you are not working on a pen display you should either do trad or buy one. traditional tablets are obsolete and no working artist uses one anymore. Sinix was the most recent hold out to switch to 24" pro. get fucked. mike azevedo is next.

seethe and cope, but you will never be a real artist without one. whoever that guy is im sure is dated and no longer produces at a high level.

Soejima is a great artist because he has exquisite taste while painting his work.
Drawing though? He's alright, but he's in Japan so he gets mogged by so many pros easily. ATLUS is full of fucking dinosaurs that can't adapt to current times after all.

Is it acceptable for a cintiq 22 to have some light bleed along the top edge or should I return it?

>>
>>5752291
it's good
>>
>>5752271
Im trying to take one but my phone camera sucks, I'm going to get out my good camera ans try it again. It's like at the top edge of the screen, when the screen is black or grey there is a large area, about 4" along the edge and goes down around 3" down the screen at the largest point, that shows as much brighter than the rest of the screen.
>>
>>5752265
Oh I didnt see this one. Yes its brand new. Backlight bleed (not IPS bleed that sits at corners and goes away when viewing angle changes) is caused by pressure on the screen, right? So probably wacom put it together wrong or someone at the amazon warehouse or shipping must have mishandled it I guess? Fuck...
>>
>>5752317
What is your price range and what size screen do you want? Do you want just HD resolution or do you want 2k or 4k? Do you want accurate colors and contrast? Do you live in a country where it is difficult to get people to ship to you? Give us information.
>>
>>5752351
I want the recommended list to give me options so that I may take my personal circumstances into account, but everything seems to be ruled out.

Next week I'm going to visit a friend who has both an iPad and a huge-ass Huion and I'll give them a try, I have no idea what I want yet, but that should help.
I still have a baby-butt-smooth Bamboo so anything should be an upgrade, really (except in terms of durability).
>>
>>5752373
ignore the OP, it's made by some schizo
>>
>>5752373
Look at Cintiqs, pro is best version but regular cintiq can be okay at smaller sizes like 16". Xp Pen is good too, the best ones from them are the 16 pro with x3 chip, 12" 2nd gen, and 24 pro. From Huion, don't go older than 2019 (you can look up what year they were released on amazon if you need to) Their 24" 4k plus is nice if you want huge but since you would use 2k scaling anyways, the 2k pro version is actually good at that size. From them, you want Pro or Plus versions when you can. I can't vouch personally for Gaomon but I hear they've made some decent tablets, I have no clue but if you're a poorfag it's something to look into.

I hope this helps some
>>
>>5752374
If someone could post the actual OP with the recommended list we made as a thread before it would be nice.

>>5752317
Gold standard is cintiq pro 24. Very expensive though. The new huion 24 pro looks good to specs wise, not sure if they fixed the driver issues by now

What the fuck. My laptop's screen is 16" and my secondary monitor is 21", I think that's too much of a drawing surface already.
A 16" is more than enough for me, hopefully that helps with the price. (Lmoaing imagining capslock anon drawing on a 10" one).

Also thanks for the info. Cintiqs are probably impossible to buy without pawning my family around here, but Huions might be available at just a kidney per unit.

Last question: these tablets come with their own power supply, so is it gentle on a laptop? I don't want to overburden its PSU, as I think it's already working above what it should.
>>
>>5751340
Did your order get canceled, anon?

Are there any good black friday deals on wacom tablets? I'm not seeing shit yet.
>>
>>5752471
For cheaper 16" tablets you might want to check out huion kamvas 16 2021 version NOT the pro and the new xp-pen 16 pro with the x3 chip. Order from amazon if possible so you can return if you have issues

Oh not that guy, but I'll take on any offers for help. I am an amateur hobbyist still learning the ropes, doing loomis figures. So just HD resolution is enough for me, and doesn't have to have accurate colors as it will mostly be sketches and line art.
I live in eastern europe, but got a friend in germany who can order from the german amazon.
I have a price range of 100$ maximum. If I develop some actual skills I might think about something better.
>>
Stupid question but, does every display tablet work in vertical mode like a regular iPad/Tab to draw in?
I'm gonna be working A LOT with full body models, anatomy in general and I use more vertical space than horizontal for obvious reasons ...can I just turn a Cintiq sideways and draw like that?
>>
>>5752517
ye, just flip the monitor in windows display settings.
>>
>>5752505
On amazon, intuos pros are discounted right now.
>>
>>5752471
Yeah they either come with a power supply or the power usb can be plugged in to a wall. Some of them can run on a single usb c if they're small enough.
>>
>>5752512
$100 for a screen tablet is pretty low, if you can get around $200 you could get a 12" or 13" from xp pen or huion during their sale. Ive been seeing them go on sale a ton during early black friday on amazon though.

Maybe closer to $100 would be something like a Gaomon pd1161? I think that ones $160 right now on amazon. Gaomon tablets are ok they're just not professional grade.
>>
>>5752591
Nice.

>>5752508
Cintiq 16 (non-pro) is 1000 dollars, Huion 16 is $850. Why? Importing taxes, of course. Minimum wage is $200/month, for reference.

It's your money, not mine. You want to waste it on wacom, go ahead. Nobody is getting paid for recommending chink products here so don't expect people to waste their time making a video for you to call them a shill anyway. I am however suspicious at how hard wacom is being shilled here to the point where threads recommending brands other than wacom (apple and samsung don't count as other brands) are being aggressively shut down.

>>
>>5753612
sure, there are plenty fine tablets by now, the OP is just made by a guy that shills the established brands super hard.
I'd avoid wacom's cheap new tablets tho, they're designed to lure in unknowing people who recognizes the brand name, instead I'd go for something from Huion or XP-pen who competes with wacoms higher priced lineup for the same price as wacoms cheap stuff.

>>5753763
that one is a lot smaller than the ones I posted, comes with no express keys, only have 2048 pressure levels and is just as cheaply made except priced twice its value.

the smaller the tablet, the more difficult they are to draw on. They're mostly meant for graphic designers who use them to draw logos and other graphical elements.

I had an Intous 3 for a long time but then it got water damaged. I've been drawing on an ipad since then and although it's nice I just don't care for the apple system, managing files is a pain.

Any opinions on Xencelabs? Or should I just grab a newer wacom?
>>
>>5753830
The 1060 plus was better. Xp pen deco 01 v2 is also good. Gaomon M10K2018, Huion HS610, Xp Pen Deco Fun Large. These are the kind of sizes you should look at, and they're in your price range. Don't give your friend carpal tunnel to save yourself $10 or $20, man.
>>
>>5753838
Xencelabs is pretty nice, build quality is better than Wacom, they're the same as an Intuos Pro just without barrel rotation detection. They're basically the same price though, I think it's more marketed towards people who want an Intuos but not from Wacom. I think if you're buying a wacom right now you could grab an Intuos Pro M off of amazon cheaper than the Xencelabs tablet due to the sales.

How disappointing.

>>5753910
>That isn't new at all, it's been out since december of last year.
Shit. Thought it was new since they're promoting it with the Artist 12 (2nd gen).
They really need to revamp their product names.
>>
>>5752348
if you're still here, it's unacceptable for for a brand new product to behave like that. If it were used, I would feel slightly different. Even if it were a Huion I would still try to get it replaced. Did you get it through like Amazon or somewhere easy to replace? People shit on Huion, probably rightfully so, but the amount of their products I have purchased off Amazon and then returned a day later because I just wanted to test it is astounding. Probably 6 displays at this point? The one I kept ended up having a bleed issue which I had replaced.
>>
16" vs 22" tablet for a beginner?
>>
>>5754023
how committed are you? If ur dipping ur toes, a 16 inch is fine and doesn't use as much space, but if ur going hard a 22 inch will be nice in the long run.
>>
>>5754041
as committed as "there's nothing left in my life but making it as an artist so i need to make my first purchase absolutely count and not be a hurdle in the near future"
I don't know what brand to go for either, Huion is like less than half the price of Wacom in Canada...
>>
>>5753928
Yeah it was through Amazon, sucks to pack it up and return it immediately cause I want to use it but I don't want to keep it especially if theres a chance the screen bleed is gonna get worse over time
>>
>>5754045
if money is a problem, go for huion. You're not getting that much more from Wacom, atleast not for the price you pay.
>>
>>5754045
if you're serious about art, then go for the wacom
even the cheaper non-pro models are great
people like >>5754093 are ham fisted numb-fingered bitches that couldn't tell the difference between drawing with a 6B pencil or a 4H because of how fucking fat and heavy their stupid hands are

might as well be telling people to use bottom barrel colored pencils or shitty fucking printer paper for their watercolors

Guys ... I appreciate the passion but I just wanted a nice recommendation about tablet size and brand.
I'm gonna be honest money is not really an issue right now I just don't like overpaying for something. But the opinions are so mixed online that I think I'll just order something and return it if I don't like it.
>>
>>5754185
The wacom guy starts shit every thread its why he doesnt link back to previous threads.

Just get what seems good to you, the only wacom stuff worth the price tag is the pro models, the only huion or xp pen worth the price is stuff released within the last 2 years, and their 4k screens are overpriced compared to their 2k versions of the same models. If its a screen tablet, recommended is 16" or above with good color gamut and minimum 1000:1 contrast ratio or higher. Report rate / response rate from the stylus is important dont sleep on that stat.

Best advice I can give you, fren.
>>
>>5754185
the only people that give a damn about buying non-wacom display tablets are people that are into "value" and "I don't want to pay for ~the name~"
there is no fucking comparison as far as quality goes unless you get an ipad pro, but of course an ipad comes with the concessions of ios

>>5754224
your advice is as good as your art
it's shit

This is the best route right now. There's a lot of garbage on the market, despite companies bettering their hardware.

It's what I did with my XP-Pen (kept it)

I'll order a Cintiq 16 and a Huion 16 alternative from Amazon first to see how it goes.
If none of those make the cut, I'll just go for the new 16 Pro instead whenever it releases here in Canada I guess.
Unfortunately I still don't think 16" is ideal size wise but that's as much as my budget can go (and I guess touch makes up for it?) it's either that or a Cintiq 22 for the expensive device bracket.
>>
>>5754257
The touch on drawing tablets is always really shit, like a bad mouse touchpad
>>
>>5754258
apparently it got improved in the latest model? there's only one review out there though
i'm not gonna lie just the look and that 4k screen with perfect calibration is quite appealing as well
>>
>>5754262
>>5754257
you'll be disabling the touch while drawing anyways, if it's like every other drawing tablet that's ever existed
>>
>>5754278
so basically there's no benefit to it other than the 4k resolution and screen upgrades that come with it right?
hmmmm...maybe I buy a Cintiq 16 now, treat it well and upgrade to a proper 24" Pro behemoth in the future when I get to advanced level?
>>
>>5754287
Just get the 22. I regretted getting the 16" when I started doing stuff like zbrush sculpting. Now it's sitting in a box somewhere because I couldn't sell it even at half the price with free shipping
>>
>>5754303
don't sell it, it's great to have a backup in case something goes wrong.
>>
>>5754303
If I buy the 22 what should I buy for ergonomics purposes? I had a whole idea for the Cintiq 16 on top of a box I have at home but the 22 is fucking huge ...is it good enough with the included stand at default desk height?

I just got this old Cintiq 12wx used and the screen has some scratches. It's not something too bad but a bit annoying when viewing anything too bright. Can I used something like Brasso on it or is it too risky?
>>
>>5754306
No you definitely need an ergotron arm
>>
>>5754327
>Brasso
Are you trying to fuck your screen up like a retard? Hell no, don't do that.
>>
>>5754501
Hmmm that's gonna be a problem, I don't want to spend that much more and also buy a more expensive desk than the one I have now that I'm sure won't resist it properly
>>
Hey, can anyone give me a suggestion? Total noob when it comes to digital art. I'd like to get a screen tablet that I can hook into my computer for drawing, graphic design, and spriting. I have a soft budget of about $500- I'm willing to save up more to get something decent if need be.
>>
>>5754554
Also correct me if im wrong but every ergotron video I see the screens wobble to fucking much while resting on them
>>
>>5754306
That stand the 22 comes with us good and sturdy. Not as amazingly adjustable as the ergo stand that the large pro models use but it’s plenty good.
I don’t like the ergotron monitor arm mounts for my tablets, but I also use old drafting tables and stuff like that
Just make sure you exercise to undo the effects of leaning over
>>
>>5754306
The Cintiq 22 comes with the fancy adjustable metal stand that's sold separately for the Cintiq 16. You don't need anything other than the extra desk space. If you want an arm that's entirely up to you.
>>
>>5754305
I bought the Cintiq 22 from best buy and just got their 2 year geeksquad warranty. If they can't fix it I get a full refund. Like maybe it'll break down the road but that's probably going to be years from now
>>
>>5754554
>>5754566
If your desk is too small to hold the weight its a problem but if you are just worried about the material being too thin you can put a chunk of wood under it along the clamp to make sure it distributes weight properly. Or you can go with wall mount. And no the wobbling shouldnt happen and at the very least it should be minimal. If its wobbling then they chose an ergo arm with a weight maximum too close to the weight of the monitor, or they didnt adjust the springs enough. Ideally the weight of the tablet should fall right in between minimum and maximum weight for the arm.

If you don't want to fuck with that stuff though, just try the tablet by itself and see how you feel first.

>>5754565
Cintiq 16, Wacom One could work if you're not concerned about color accuracy. Pair one of those with the Parblo or Artisul tablet stand because theirs suck ass.
>>
>>5754615
>>5754634
>>5754642
ty guys im gonna try it with just the included stand it comes with
maybe lowering my chair a bit when im drawing will make it more ergonomic, until i find a platform big and sturdy enough to put it on top lmao
>>
>>5754566
Yea it wobbles, it's just the nature of moving parts on what's basically a giant lever. All large tablets have that issue but it's perfectly usable unless you're an ape

I need a verdict on Wacom Intuos tablet. Line art mosty, for beginners. The jewery of selling the pen separately for an 80$ total is putting me off, but otherwise it seems fine.
>>
>>5755051
The verdict seems to be wacom is overpriced. Unfortunately the alternative is chinese shit (fuck the tyrannical ccp i'm not a shill)
I'd just get a shitty $55-80 zhang tablet. The less money you spend on beginner shit the less money you spend overall. Youtube and r*ddit seems to like them if you want bang-for-buck. Wacom needs to lower prices but they don't have slave labor so not gonna happen.

I have this tablet, it's fucking impossible to draw on as a beginner. I used it for osu so it's not like i'm uncomfortable with it. I got the deco v2 and it was night and day. bigger is usable and I wouldn't get anything that isn't "M" sized. Just spend the extra $20 on the deco 01 v2, or another tablet like it i don't care which.
Also it doesn't pass the ruler test, lines are naturally wobbly, I'd only use it for osu or maybe really shitty art? Paper is better than that thing, do NOT go small.

It's like you are contradicting yourselves, you always recommend anons on /beg/ threads to do swift and gestural strokes on BIG CANVASES.

What the hell honestly?
>>
>>5755309
>But how the fuck do you do gestural strokes on a tiny space?
that's the thing, you don't
unless you wanna handicap yourself get a big drawing surface, or adapt to the small size
there's a reason why even japs moved on to cintiqs eventually (i'm talking old dinosaurs here), it's just not the same
also, if you happen to be a gamer like me (so 24", 27" or even bigger screen at 1440p for example) a screen-less will feel even shittier because of the scaling

Noob here. So at what point did you guys decide that you are going to switch from paper and go buy a drawing tablet?
I only started to consider because I thought how much better it would be if I could turn off the underlying draft lines with a click of a layer button.
On the other hand I am a few weeks old in this. Should I discard this notion and keep going on paper until a certain level of proficiency? Or better invest into a cheaper device until then?

Any advice?

You know, if your tablet is supposed to be in warranty and the company tells you to fuck off, I recommend consulting a lawyer, maybe they can send a letter as incentive :) It is not legal to refuse someone under warranty

You can also go karen mode and ask to speak to their supervisor or manager

Medium or large , the screen doesnt matter, it comes down to how much space you want on the tablet to move around your hand.
>>
>>5751093
>Will burn through your nibs
What the fuck does this means
>>
>>5756855
The surface will erode the nibs faster than the 3. The 3 has the best surface.
>>
>>5756720
Huion 13.

>>5756855
There is a plastic nib in the stylus. Wacom nibs are very soft, and you rub them against a textured surface which is basically sandpaper. The nibs disappear quickly, especially if you are heavy handed you could expect to change the nib daily.
>>
>>5756858
Yeah but anything has a better stylus and response rate. Just put a screen protector over the drawing surface and suddenly you have a bigger and better intuos 3
>>
I've been using Huion H1060p for a year and it was pretty comfy, but I've completely destroyed its micro USB port.

So the XP-Pen 15.6 pro screen protector is complete garbage and basically needs to be replaced immediately. It will get scratched up and obfuscate details after a few months of regular use. Annoying but an easy and relatively cheap fix, and it's really the only complaint I've had so far after 6 months. The pen feels great and the shortcut keys make everything easier. This thing is pretty great.
