The 5 best tablets for Artists

All Cintiqs have Wacom’s Pro Pen 2, which is one of the best on the market in terms of pressure and tilt sensitivity, but they are also compatible with the Pro Pen 3D, which has three buttons built-in into the pen and was designed for quick movement between dimensions.

Purchase includes three months of ZBrush 2021 (which covers 3D sculpting) and six months of Clip Studio Paint EX (illustration), allowing you to experiment with other media and platforms if you haven’t before.


Number 5. HUION Kamvas Pro 22


The 5 best tablets for Artists


If you just need a pen display for everyday usage, the HUION Kamvas Pro 22 is a less-priced alternative to Wacom tablets. The tablet’s 10 configurable keys (with 16 functions to pick from) and touch bar on each side allow for an optimized workflow. Its stand tilts from 20 to 80 degrees, making it suitable for both standing desks and more traditional layouts.

While its resolution cannot compete with that of finer (and more costly) tablet PCs, the pen display is big enough that it may not matter. However, if you want to carry it about, those 6 kgs will get quite hefty. It’s not ideal for commuting unless you’re attempting to lift weights along the way, but keep it in one location and you’ll be OK.

The pen that comes with it is also a fantastic buy; it’s battery-free, which saves you time, is pressure-sensitive, and tilt-sensitive, so you don’t have to arch your wrist in strange ways to get the tablet to recognize the stylus tip.
