Drawing Tablets Specs And More

Drawing tablets come with and without a screen. The ones without screens are plugged into a computer and drawn on with a stylus. Drawing tablets with screens are more expensive (sometimes significantly more expensive) but they can be worth the investment.

They are easier to work on, enable you to directly look at what you are working on for easier hand-to-eye coordination. One thing to keep in mind is that not all drawing tablets with screens are standalone products, some will still need to connect to a computer to work.

Don’t get me wrong – connecting to a computer helps a lot, but in some situations, you might prefer to not have it connected.

The following features are what you need to look out for:

  • Software Support: Always research the drivers and software support that comes with your tablet. You should know how well it will work with the rest of your setup so you can work effectively. Good driver and software support will significantly increase available software it can run with, reduce input lag, and sync completely with your PC.
  • Pressure Sensitivity: Your drawing tablets translates the exerted pressure from the stylus as input and uses it for many features, such as line weight. A tablet with 2,048 levels is enough. For comparison, just imagine that you are working with 2,000 different shades of every color.
  • Resolution: The resolution for drawing tablets is measured in Lined Per square Inch (LPI). It defines the detail you can add in the activity area of the tablet.
  • Size: The size of conventional tablets’ activity area roughly translates to small (6 x 4 inches), medium (8 x 5 inches), and large (10 x 6 inches). These come in all shapes, sizes, and configurations, so you are free to choose what suits you best. However, do check the screen resolution that comes with them. Also, a smaller screen size means fewer hand movements and less fatigue. At the same time, a larger screen size makes it so much easier to zoom in and add details to your work.
  • Standalone: Can the tablet be used by itself or are you required to connect it to a computer.
  • The Stylus: Your tablet pen has quite an impact on your work. They come in battery-free and rechargeable battery (replaceable and internal) configurations as well as other features. Battery-operated ones come with more specifications as they can power complex hardware.
  • Tablet Buttons and Features: Drawing tablets come with programmable buttons that enable the binding of keyboard shortcuts. For beginners, streamlined software is more important than buttons, but they help you become very efficient once you get a hang of them.
  • Tilt Recognition and Multitouch: Tilt recognition adds a whole new level of brush strokes and control by recognizing how you hold the stylus and translating its input to the tablet. Multitouch enables features such as pinching for zooming in and out. They are incredible for professionals and just as useful for beginners, but can be compromised on if you are a starter.
