- Huion H610 pro (80$) - review
- Wacom Intuos Pro Medium or Large (300-500$)
Screen tablets are worth a try if you’re an experienced artist already, and you do a lot of line work.
- Huion GT-220 (21.5” HD screen, 800$) - review
- Monoprice 19” (1440*900 resolution, 400$) - review
- Wacom Cintiq 13HD (13” HD screen, 800$)
- Always download and install the driver from the manufacturer’s official website before you plug your device in! This will save you some trouble.
- As far as Wacom tablets are concerned, you can pretty safely buy second hand devices! That’s how I got mine, and after years of frequent use, they still work perfectly.
- At the time I’m writing this, Krita doesn’t support every single tablet on the market. The developers are in the process of re-writing their tablet code. Wacom tablets work OK, but some other brands might not until Krita 3.0’s release.
- If you want to use 2 tablets at the same time like I’m doing, they have to share the same brand. In other words, you can’t use a flat Wacom tablet and a Wacom cintiq at the same time.
