When I was six, I received a Wacom Intuos 3 for my birthday, although I was only able to understand how to use in six years later. Now I’m 17, my pen nibs aren’t detected, the software doesn’t work on my mac, and I just want to get a new tablet.
I’ve gone to several stores, asked my artist friends, and done some research for myself for a couple weeks, and most of what I have found is a mix between the new Intuos Pro or the new iPad Pro. For the past month, I have been going back and forth between the iPad and the Intuos Pro. My art at the moment is an anime style, though I would love to develop more detail, which I have been told that the wacom tablets are way better for details.
I know that the iPad Pro is well regarded by many artists, some even say it’s not worth going back to a Wacom after getting the iPad. But I’m also comfortable with Firealpaca (the program that I use) and have no idea if I can get the same experience out of the Apple apps.
Both the Intuos Pro and the iPad Pro are within my price range, and although I am not a professional artist and have no plans to make any money off my art, I’m concerned that I may feel that the iPad is a downgrade.
Please help! I really need a second opinion!!
