Popular Hardware Options for Digital Drawing

Digital drawing, as an art form, is extremely popular these days. Many art schools are now teaching digital drawing as a course. But what is digital drawing really? Digital drawing is making illustrations using specialised software and hardware instead of regular paper and pencil. You can do this on your computer with a stylus, tablet or even your mouse. The software usually used includes Adobe Illustrator or Corel Draw. These software are meant to replicate the true craft of tools like crayons, pens and brushes. 

Unlike traditional art, digital drawings don't have a hard copy. One needs to take prints which also has to be numbered if it has to have an art value. The good part is that you can take prints of all sizes to display in any establishment. Even casinos have great art collections these days like you can see here. When it comes to hardware for this art form, there has been a proliferation of peripherals in recent times. If you are serious about taking this as a hobby or a career, it will serve you well to look at the hardware options, more specifically tablets, available in the market these days.

XP-Pen Artist 12 Pro Drawing 

The X-Pen Artist 12 Pro is a very popular hi-definition tablet option for graphic designers. The display has a 1920x1080 resolution that is bright and is a real joy to work with. The screen is around 11 inches and has reduced glare. There are about eight shortcut keys that make it really easy to draw and work. The tablet stylus has a lovely grip and like a pencil also has an eraser on one end. The tablet is compatible with all popular software like Photoshop and Illustrator. 


The GAOMON PD1560 tablet is unique in the sense that it also offers pressure levels for the pen so that your drawings can be more accurate and nuanced. It also has something called the Embedded Signal Interface that takes care of all the cable signal issues. There are about 10 expression keys which you can customise for your ease of work and five buttons that help you navigate the menu. This is an extremely versatile tablet for professionals and beats even the iPad which is a big feat if you consider some of the art here that has been produced by artists on iPads.
