Graphics tablet recommendations?
« on: January 09, 2019, 10:59:25 PM »
Anyone got a rec for a decent affordable graphic tablet/stylo input system. Have started importing pencil drawings/sketches onto my computer and colourising them, however I can't really get what I want from using a mouse.

I use a Wacom Bamboo. Was very reasonable when I bought it a few years ago. I've not used them but Huion seem to be a reasonably priced brand.

Tablets do take a while to get used to but stick with it. They are far superior to a mouse for artwork, photo touch up etc.

Funnily enough I just ordered a new tablet last week. A wireless HUION Inspiroy Q11K V2 which I got at less than half price on Amazon (75Euros down from 180Euros). Shame you didn't do that.

All I can say is avoid XP Pen. Their drivers make their tablets borderline unusable and my pen broke within a month. As for Wacom they are very good at the high end $3000 display tablets but at the lower end Huion generally has much better bang for your buck. The $60-$70 Wacom Intuos range in particular feels deliberately nerfed to push users to go for the $200 dollar Intuous Pro.
