What makes the best drawing tablet for beginners?

Every drawing tablet has its own specifications according to the prize, brand, and size but apart from this, there is something that needs to be in every drawing tablet. Let’s see through one by one:-

Effective Area

The area is where we draw or our stylus work. You also have bezel or plastic edges that come between the screen and the casing in this area. It is only depending on your interest and experience level that how much area you required to draw over it.

Most tablets have active areas labeled but double-check the effective screen size before buying a Drawing tablet. Of course, you need a widescreen if you are a beginner.

Sensitivity

It means how much fast responsive your graphic pad is. As it is found in the user that his/her hardness of holding the brushes also affects the sensitivity of the tablets. The higher the sensitivity greater the response of the tablets.

Resolution

If you are someone who wants everything in a high resolution then you should care about the resolution then you need to care about the resolution your drawing tablets have.

Stylus

The stylus is a device that helps to draw over the tablets. The main thing to worry about is that it should be wireless. Nowadays Electromagnetic Resonance (EMR) stylus comes into existence. Which provides greater reliability and sets the user free from the wire and limited movement of the stylus. So it’s better to have an EMR stylus other than a wired or a battery-operated one.

1- Xencelabs Pen Tablet

If you’re trying to speed up your editing process, then this handful of devices could help make complicated masking, brushing, and Cloning tasks more accessible and more user-friendly by using a digital pen. 

I first purchased an active-style pen years ago as an accessory for my laptop. While I’m not a sketcher, I soon realized that it was a lot better than the mouse or touchpad to accomplish those tedious tasks like creating complicated masks or cloning tiny specks of dust from photographs of product images.

xencelabs pen tablet

Xencelabs pen tablet has an ergonomic super sleek design and comes with a 13-inch medium size, neither too big nor too small. 

I keep this drawing tablet top in my list due to its price segmentation and durability, and function with a classic design, and this is one of my favorite tabs. The strokes and other design made from its pen is perfect and very good and there is no lag smooth line and no line is missing when sketching at speed. Also,  it has several advantages and when I compared it to Wacom Intuous Pro S then, I found that in this price segment, Xencelabs pen tablet is better and smooth in design. 

This drawing tablet has some other features like a backlit area for the best drawing in the dark, and it comes with a good battery life that is more than sufficient. It is compatible not only with windows and mac but also with android but there is something that is really worst that it has only three physical controls on the tablet, and there is no pen stand provided on the tablet. 

 

2- Apple Ipad pro M1

iPad pro is an outstanding performer for drawing use, right? Yes, it is one of the best devices, and this is the reason I am mentioning in second place in my list as it has excellent performance and looks that something impresses me, but the price is a little higher compared to other devices with the same functions and features. 

apple ipad pro

However, the 11.2-inch iPad Pro display is not a poor performer in any sense. It’s got a resolution of 2,388 x 1668 pixels, and the display extends from edge to edge. The bezels are slim, and Apple achieves the right rounded corners for a modern and industrial design.

You can play games with absolute pleasure on the iPad Pro. The M1 iPad Pro display has been calibrated to match color, brightness, white point, and gamma. Also, Apple has added an anti-reflective coating to facilitate ease of use even in harsh conditions. You can easily work in bright daylight, the display will be sufficient to continue working. It is equipped with the Magic Keyboard, which has also been improved slightly from the previous version.

The trackpad functions as a charm. Overall this is a wonderful tablet, but it’s worth the purchase only if you spend the extra money for its Magic Keyboard. You can skip using the Apple Pencil unless you’re a photographer, illustrator, or artist. However, you must have the Magic Keyboard.

3- Huion Kamvas 22

Looking for a tab with a large screen and an impressive display? 

Yes, the Huion Kamvas 22 Plus, as you could have already guessed, is an improvement and upgrade of the Huion Kamvas 22. Huion’s recent update to its pen display of 22 inches makes it stronger and more powerful underneath the hood. And at the same time, it is not to be considered to be a sacrifice with regards to performance in terms of efficiency and performance.

huion kamvas 22

It is equipped with an etched anti-glare screen, not the anti-glare film. This will cause the screen to last much longer. A budget-friendly model includes pen displays, but the pen has a lot more to be desired, specifically in its presentation. It comes with an elongated doughnut-shaped pen holder that is nice.

However, it’s not awe-inspiring. Inside, there are 10 nibs for replacement as well as there are other tiny plastic bags with the word ‘gift’ on it, which contain an additional 10. The Kamvas 22 comes with a USB-C to USB-C connector so that it can be connected to an Android-compatible smartphone or laptop. In addition to the power port, the main one is a three-in-one cable as well as a power adapter.

Overall, the Huion Kamvas 22 has a fantastic screen size at a reasonable price, but the screen is not a touch screen, and there are too many wires to connect and work similarly to a desktop. These are a few drawbacks that make it less compatible than other tabs with good battery and pen support. 

 

4- Apple ipad air 4 5th gen

The iPad Air (5th Gen) is an amazing computer at a reasonable price and it is a notebook-sized device with the capabilities of the MacBook Pro. Its Apple M1 chip is able to handle everything you put it through from iPadOS, which has a wide selection of applications for creative use. The screen is clear and precise and light enough to take anywhere with you.

ipad air 4 for sheet music

There are great reasons to choose to go with an iPad Pro instead (especially the larger 12.9-inch model) however, they’re being marginalized with the iPad Air being a fully developed creative powerhouse, even without the “pro” brand name.

The only thing I disliked was that they didn’t enhance the screen of the new iPad Air from the previous model. That’s why you may get the same IPS screen size of 2360×1640. This is 264 pixels per inch however it’s not as crisp as the iPad Mini (6th Generation) or smartphone screens,and hence I placed it below in the list even though it is a great technology.

Hardware Specifications of iPad Air 10.9
Processor A14 Bionic
RAM 4 GB
Storage 64/256 GB
Display 10.9″ Retina display with 2360 x 1640

Battery Life 9 hours
Weight 1.0 lbs
PROS
  • Elegant thin and light design.
  • Bright, colorful and sharp display.
  • Excellent webcam.
  • Magic Keyboard.
CONS
  • No face id.
  • No headphone jack.
  • Expensive accessories.

 

It’s perfectly suited for the distances that you’ll normally utilize on the iPad Air. Also, you can use the Pencil, and the Pencil is magnetically attached to the back of the iPad, not just for storage but additionally to charge wirelessly whenever it’s there, ensuring that it’s always charged and ready when required.

Connecting it on the sides immediately pairs it with the iPad, meaning it’s not a hassle making it set up as well as switching it between different iPads.
