Graphic tablet for drawing is not only a tool for professional illustrators or photographers. It is also an excellent choice for hobbyists – however, if we are only starting adventure with digital graphics, it is worth paying attention to several issues.
All graphics tablets can be easily classified into three main types: pen tablets, graphic tablets with a screen and advanced graphic tablets with a display and a computer. Each of the selected options has its own advantages. It is also worth emphasizing that each type of graphic tablet has a slightly different approach to the main challenge, which is help in drawing on the computer in a natural and comfortable way (as it is on a sheet of paper).
Currently, two types of graphics tablet are available on the market:
Before buying a graphic tablet, it is worth checking the technical parameters that will help you choose the right type of device and avoid disappointment.
When choosing a graphic tablet for yourself, it is worth considering its purpose first. If it is to be used mainly for fun or to check yourself as a creator, it is not worth investing in high-end equipment immediately. Surely it might be way more intuitive and comfortable to work with it, rather than cheap tablets, but it can cost a fortune. A pretty good idea if the equipment is to be used solely for fun is to simply buy a tablet – not a graphic, but “ordinary tablet”, equipped with a stylus.
Work equipment is a different case. There is no point in saving on it- usually after a short time of using a really cheap device, its deficiencies in the form of not quite accurate work, low comfort and small possibilities begin to bother. Specialized software may also be a problem, usually cheap equipment doesn’t come in a packet with it or is not compatible. Before buying, you should also think carefully about the type and size of equipment, and this is best to check in person.
