Graphics tablet recommendations
« on: January 29, 2017, 08:30:32 AM »
Hi everyone!

I'm looking to buy a graphics tablet to help with digitising my calligraphy, Wacom is my preferred choice, does anyone have any recommendations? I've looked into the different Wacom models but get confused as I can't figure out which would be best for what I want to use it for!

Also which programmes/software would you recommend?

Thank you
Sarah

Been using a Wacom Intuos 2 6"x8" for years for Photoshop.  I find 6"x8" the perfect size for me.

The stylus is pressure sensitive which helps for line variation.

Here's Wacom's website:

So many choices, but I'm sure you'll find one that fits your needs and budget.

I talked to Mary Kate McDevitt about this and she told me that she uses a Wacom Cintiq 24"
and that is superb, I was unsure about getting the iPad Pro and the iPencil so I brought it up to her
and she told me that that is what she uses
she also said that if I didn't want to spend that much to get a much smaller one
