“WOW… do not touch it!!!”
“Because I say so..”
“It’s just a Graphic Tablet..”
“But it’s precious to me..”
“Oh… it’s more important than me?!”
“To tell the truth YES… now leave it alone… and SHOOO!!!”
Yes, I got my first Graphic tablet, #Huion Kamvas Pro 16 (4K) last year. And I have been falling in love with it. No wonder I am possessive about this gadget so much. After many years of comparing and thinking a lot, this suited my budget and my work area. Compared to #Wacom, this was affordable with all the accessories.
I was thinking of getting a 24 inch or bigger, but realized with my petite body size and work space won’t match such a big size. So, I went with the 16 inch. The perfect size, yes I have a habit of needing a bigger space when I draw. And I don’t have to bend over or move my hand a lot to draw. Felt almost like drawing on paper.
The first few times I had to go with trial and error, as there was a little learning curve. Even with the settings on the pen, I optioned to use brush properties and erase. Watching several YouTube videos, specially Brad Colbow (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0RmGV5wALG0) helped me to get a better grasp of how to use the graphic tablet and start on digital drawing.
After getting used to I felt I have found a new freedom to draw as I feel. With using the mouse I had issues when I wanted to do free hand
drawings or wavy lines, which I mostly used the pen tool to achieve what I want. But with the graphic tablet I can quickly draw with ease, and get the work done quickly.
What I love mostly is the pressure sensitivity of the pen. This was a new experience for me, as I couldn’t do this with the mouse. I was able to give depth and different widths to the lines I drew. So my flat drawing started to get some life.
When it comes to all this, I have to say I am possessive of the #Huion tablet. Yes I am so happy I at last got a graphic tablet and this is the best gift I got for me myself. This has helped me to improve my work flow and I have started to see new designs emerging.
A tip: If you are a designer and if you can afford, or save money, invest on a graphic tablet. This doesn’t have to be over the top or so
expensive. This will help you to draw quickly and ease your work flow, plus the possibilities are endless.
