Drawing tablets?
« on: December 17, 2016, 12:19:03 pm »
Hey everyone! So with the holiday season approaching one of the big gifts on my Christmas list is a new drawing tablet. I have a very, VERY old Wacom model, a Graphire2. These are seriously old and even though it still works, an upgrade is much needed since I am down to my last pen nib and the cord is a hassle to deal with since it's so long. I was thinking of getting an Intuos but since none of my art friends have it, I don't know what to ask for. Those of you with graphics tablets, can you please suggest some to me? I'm trying to stay with Wacom because I know they make some of the best tablets out there, but who knows, I might find something new.

Also, I'm looking for drawing pads, aka ones with no screen. Thanks!

The ones I'd suggest are the Intuos line from around 2012-2013. They're the previous line to the actual models of Intuos tablets, but they're supposed to all work the same, except that you're likely to find the old models cheaper than the new ones. I've tried both the small and medium tablets and I'd recommend the medium one over the small one any day of the year, but the small ones are still good enough to draw ^^ If you want the old models, look for Intuos Pen or Intuos Medium Pen & Touch. I wouldn't go for the Pen & Touch small since the trackpad functions don't do that much of a difference

Thanks! I will look into it :D

If your just looking for something simple and functional, I definitely recommend the Pen and Touch Medium. Got mine a couple years ago and still works perfect, lots of space, only down side was my cord frayed not long after receiving it but was easily replaced though!
