Practice simple things daily and your art will improve.

My Top 5 Wacom Graphics Tablets:

Wacom Cintiq 24HD Tablet DisplayWacom Cintiq 24HD Multi-Touch Tablet / Display (Links to Amazon)- Best of the Wacom tablets. The Cintiq 24HD multi-touch is the largest graphics tablet display and is considered the holy grail of drawing tablets. For serious and/or professional artists, designers and animators.

Wacom Cintiq 22HD Tablet / Display (Links to Amazon)- Expect the same high quality as the Cintiq 24HD, but for about $500 less and about $1000 less than the 24HD multi-touch.

Wacom Intuos5 Pen Tablet – Excellent for a professional designer/artist. Available in different sizes and a wireless option.

Wacom Bamboo Splash Tablet – Great for an artist who has never used a tablet before and seriously wants to make the leap from standard drawing to digital.

Wacom Bamboo Create Pen and Touch Tablet – Great for someone who is interested in the same things that the Bamboo Splash offers, but wants more drawing space. Also, this Bamboo tablet  is bundled with more software than the Bamboo Splash.

intuos5 wacom tablet computerBuying a Wacom Tablet:
I’m a self taught graphic designer who has used several different graphics tablets throughout the years and I’m offering my personal Wacom tablet reviews here. Having been disappointed by other brands, I was happy when I found Wacom. I had some confusion researching which Wacom tablet was right for me so I thought writing this Wacom tablet site might help other people make a decision.

For me, Wacom is the frontrunner in graphic design tablets. I believe they are a great company and more importantly, they design and produce high-quality products. I’ve used the other brands in the past and have been disappointed.

Wacom Bamboo Create: A Great Tablet for Artists

c700x420

Introduction

The Wacom Bamboo Create is an excellent beginner’s and semi-professional tablet. Despite slightly worse sensitivity specs on the pen area, it produces great results and is really comfortable for drawing. The biggest advantage of this tablet is its price range ($199+ or less) and a large drawing area that is touch-capable. That’s right, you can pinch to zoom, scroll and even tap with just your finger.

The New Wacom Intuos Drawing Tablets for the Family

wacom intuosThe Intuos line has been expanded.

A refresh suited for the hobbyist, student and the professional – see Draw, Art and Comic, Wacom’s newly modernized and styled graphics tablets.

In the way of features, it’s more like a refinement of looks, rather than features. This set of tablets has been noted to have a little bit of cheap plastic feel to it.  They appear to have almost the same features*, except the software differs.

FAIR WARNING

  • When registering online there have been issues with the system at Wacom not reporting back whether it was completed online or not.
  • If you’re going to consider this tablet, take some time to read the second, third and fourth pages of reviews on Amazon, as the first page seems like marketing by Wacom Technology.
  • If you have any issues with lines not drawing correctly, note that Wacom Technology should replace the tablet for you. Windows should automatically pick up the tablet when you hook up via USB, but you should always install the drivers – they’re intended to make the tablet work best.

Notable Differences

  • *Multi-touch is available in the Intuos Art, but not the Intuos Draw.
  • Art also comes with Corel Painter Essentials so you can start creating right away.
  • The others follow suit: Comic comes with Anime Studio Debut and Clip Studio Paint Pro.

Specifications:

  • TypePressure-sensitive, cordless, battery-free
  • Model NumberSmall: CTL490DW (White) CTL490DB (Blue)
  • Active AreaSmall: 152 x 95 mm (6.0 x 3.7 in)
  • ExpressKeys™Yes, 4 with application specific settings
  • Multi-TouchNo
  • The USB cable is about 4ft

Wacom’s Fineline Between the Graphics Tablet and Tablet World

Most new pc tablets now have some touch sensitivity and stylus pens work on their screens. What’s more, you can do work on a tablet pc – but a graphics tablet isn’t capable of much more, unless you own a Cintiq.

So why get a Wacom graphics tablet?

For Wacom, this may be a challenge to figure out, now that devices like the Ipad are able to accommodate artists as well as general computing tasks like browsing.

Their price tag? Another challenge for Wacom which continues to sell its large screen tablets at a price more apt to yesteryear than 2016.

your-statement-of-style2

It’s all too clear why Wacom has jumped on the bandwagon working its latest pen stylus for the Ipad crowd.

The tablet industry is changing, and Wacom along with it.

Now enough about business.

What does the Wacom Bamboo Fineline 2 stylus have to offer Ipad owners?

  • Natural and easy to use. A smooth writing experience and a papery feel.
  • “Ergonomics with fine textures in an elegant premium design”
  • “Works with leading apps”

Price: $59.99
