XP-Pen Deco LW Pen drawing tablet review – A decent and affordable drawing tablet alternative

REVIEW – If you are either a pro or amateur digital artist, you know what a drawing tablet is. And you probably even have one.

Wacom Cintiq Pro 16 Pen Display review

REVIEW – As an art director and Photoshop artist, I’ve been using a Wacom tablet for well over 25 years. I began with their Intuos—a black slate that you draw on with a stylus (pen) while simultaneously looking at a separate monitor. Working like this takes a bit of hand-eye coordination, but I eventually came …

XP-Pen Artist Pro 16 Pen Display Graphics Tablet review – great for mobile artists on a budget

REVIEW – Almost everybody knows what an iPad is. It’s become ubiquitous in our tech-centered lives. What almost everybody does not know is that there are tablets out there artists use that aren’t iPads at all. In fact, these tablets need to be hard-wired to a computer just to work. A company called XP-Pen makes …

Wacom Cintiq Pro 24 Pen Display review – It’s not called “Pro” for nothing

REVIEW – Anyone who does art, design, or photo retouching on a computer knows the name Wacom. Wacom has made graphics tablets for years. I’ve used them for at least 20 years starting with the Intuos 2 tablet. Eventually, I upgraded to the Intuos Pro, which I still use occasionally. However, many artists and designers …

XP-Pen Artist 24 Pro Drawing Pen Display review – A dream monitor you can draw on

REVIEW – As an art director who lives and breathes Adobe art apps, I’ve come to depend on graphics tablets to get work done. My livelihood depends on them—period.

XP-Pen Innovator Display 16 drawing digitizer display review – Part 2

REVIEW – This is the second part of my review of the XP-Pen Innovator 16 Graphic Display .  The first part of the review was technical and focused upon the tablet itself.  This part is more artistic and focuses on the reactions of three young artists who used the Innovator for the first time.  They …

XP-Pen Innovator Display 16 drawing digitizer display review – Part 1

REVIEW – Artists who transition from physical mediums, like paper and canvas, to the digital world quickly learn how inadequate a mouse is.  It just doesn’t feel natural in the hand compared to a pencil or a paintbrush.  To overcome this issue, an artist can draw on a graphics tablet with a pen (aka a …

Wacom Cintiq 22 display tablet review – A digital artist’s dream

REVIEW – Last year, I reviewed the Wacom Cintiq 16 tablet, which was (at the time), Wacom’s entry-level tablet with a built-in display. Now, there’s an even newer (and cheaper) Wacom One display tablet which almost makes the Cintiq 16 irrelevant. But this isn’t a review of the Wacom One (that comes later). This is …

Wacom Intuos Pro graphics drawing tablet (PTH660) review

REVIEW – Let me state up front that I have used a Wacom graphics tablet of some form for more than 25 years. Since I do a lot of Photoshop work, the Wacom Intuos Pro tablet is not an option, it’s a necessity. Over the years, Wacom tablets have only gotten better and better with …

The Wacom Cintiq 16 drawing tablet removes a few pro features and cuts the price by more than half

NEWS – As a professional art director, I depend on Wacom graphics tablets for much of my photoshop work, whether it’s retouching or photo manipulation. It’s not natural doing computer art with a mouse or trackpad. Through the years Wacom has upgraded their line of Intuos and Cintique tablets for the Pro market—at pro prices. …
