It was a great tablet for me as a beginner with digital design, the price was only about $70, has a great feel – and it’s been with me for 7 years. It’s considered a beginner’s tablet, but I’ve used it for many years on countless professional projects including concept art for games, matte paintings for films, album cover artworks, and a lot more. Only the recent years I started feeling limited by the size and functionality of the Bamboo Pen & Touch so I upgraded to the Wacom Intuos Pro Medium, which has totally opened up more functionality for me and it just kicks ass.
As a beginner, you don’t need to buy the bigger, stronger, cooler Intuos Pro until later on when you feel you need something more (takes years!). You also don’t need to worry too much about the levels of sensitivity.
So summing it all up: pretty much any tablet will do to get you quickly started jotting down some lines and designs on your computer, but having a tablet that is of high quality, has a great pen and surface feel for when you’re painting and designing, some functionality for quick shortcut buttons, and doesn’t cost your shirt off, will really be a better buy. Put some thought into it and get yourself a proper tablet and you and your designs will be much better off!
Until next time – stay awesome and creative!
