I have finally purchased a Wacom Drawing Tablet, which I have been saving up for for a while and I have to say it’s the best thing I’ve spent my money on in a long time. So, I thought I’d do a little review/tour of the product.

 

There are a lot, and I mean a lot, of different kinds of Wacom tablets you can buy. And being a professional brand, things can get pricey. So it was hard to choose something that was just right, not too expensive but not something that was small and insignificant.

I finally went with the Wacom Intuos which is a simple ‘Pen & Touch’ with no screen. I could have gone for the Intuos Pro but I would have had to save another few hundred so I was fine with this. It’s a perfect starter tablet you’ve never done any digital art before.

There are 3 different Intuos’ you can get – Draw, Art, Comic, Photo – depending on what software you would like to have with your tablet. I opted for the Comic because I enjoy drawing manga and the Comic comes with ‘Anime Studio’ and ‘Paint Pro’ which are some good quality software. It comes in 2 sizes – medium and small.

Despite the brand, I only spent an amazing bargain of £70 on my Intuos! I chose the small size because it was cheaper and reviewers said that the actual drawing space is around the same size as the medium anyway.


When I first got it I was really excited because I’d seen on Youtube all the unboxings and the interior of the box is really nice!

It’s a great box for storing your tablet in! Underneath the tablet is a compartment for the cable, that connects it to your laptop, and the manual.

Unfortunately, I had problems with downloading the software’s from the website and apparently, a lot of other people have as well. But, I found this free application called ‘Krita’ which you can download from the internet. If you’re having trouble with your software you can try ‘Krita’ out here.

Drawing with the Wacom was not what I expected at all. I thought it was going to be scratchy like when you scrape your nails against a certain type of surface. But it actually feels like pen against paper, I love it!

If you’re looking at buying a Wacom, I definitely recommend getting an Intuos/Intuos Pro. For a beginner, it’s perfect, not difficult to use and great results. Although it was a bummer about the software I still managed to draw a pretty good first drawing using ‘Krita’.
