  • graphic drawing tablets

    I got some money for my birthday and I would like to purchase a graphics tablet. Unfortunately I cannot afford a Wacom Tablet. I was looking at the Huion 2048 Levels Pen Pressure Painting Graphic Tablet Drawing Board 10 x 6.25 Inches H610pro

    the Turcom Graphic Drawing Tablet 8 X 6 Inches

    and the Ugee M1000L Graphics Drawing Pen Tablet with 10 x 6 Inch Drawing Area 2048 Levels

    Does anyone have any suggestions as to which would be the best product?

    I use the small wacom, size is a preference thing IMHO, I'm not familiar with anĄ of those brands, sorry.

      Do you mean this one? Wacom Intuos Pen Small Tablet (CTL480).
      BTW I love your signature... it's why I want a tablet

      That's close to the one I'm currently using, same body, I have the CTH480; it has touch capability too so I can use it as a track pad.

      and thank you.

    What kind of work are you using your tablet for? Painting? Photo retouching?

    I only use mine for photo retouching work and I prefer a small wacom.

    I haven't heard of any of those brands either. I once bought a non-brand tablet and it was horrible.The pen didn't register on the tablet in the right place, the lag was unacceptable and I had to press really hard on the tip to get it to come register at all. I ended up giving it to my sister who hated it too.
    It is more fun to talk with someone who doesn't use long, difficult words but rather short, easy words like "What about lunch?" – Winnie the Pooh

      I don't use my tablet for graphics or illustrations, but most of my stuff is vector work.

      For a complete beginner I recommend starting with a mouse. If you find you are doing movements that are less "click move click" and more like painting or drawing motions, then look into getting a tablet.

      I use mine for everything, but there is a big learning curve with this style of tablet. The hardest part is separating your eyes from your hand, in other words you need to be able look at a screen (not where you are drawing) while drawing at the same time.

      I've been doing design part-time since 1999, but I am new to creating my own illustrations and backgrounds. I have noticed that I am making more painting and drawing motions, which is why I wanted to find out about the tablets.

    I am also not familiar with the brands you listed. Before investing in a Surface (which is AMAZING for drawing, made my life so much easier) I used a Wacom Bamboo Pen Tablet. It was ok and did the job but like Buda mentioned, it depends on what you will be using it for.

      I want to start doing my own graphics, backgrounds, illustrations... but I am a complete beginner. Keming commented on this thread and the signature he uses is "Design is not decoration." and that sums up what I want to move on from.

      Are you talking about this tablet? Wacom CTL471 Bamboo Splash Pen Small Tablet CTL471 Drawing Tablet Windows & Mac

      The one I had is Wacom Bamboo Pen Tablet, but I bought it years ago so they may have improved since then. Any of them I assume would work just fine. Like I said, I used it for years for my graphics and drawings up until last year when I bought a Surface.

    If you are just starting, do not go for Ugee tablets, stick to either Wacom or Huion.Currently what I am using to teach my students in Wacom Intuos and Huion Q10.Noth the tablets are great and comes with great sensitivity level.
