The Wacom Intuos Draw is the perfect tablet for people who are just beginning digital art and don’t want to spend too much on an expensive drawing tablet. I started out drawing digitally on this tiny little device and it worked wonders. Digital art is so fun to learn and eventually make real art in. Here is my overall opinion on this tablet:
I am not the techiest person out there so I am not going to go into all of the tech specs that is tablet has. If you do want to learn more about the technology in this tablet go check out Wacom’s official website here.
The reason I loved the Wacom Inous Draw for so long is that it’s really reliable and easy to work with for beginners. The other drawing tablets out there can cost over $1000 or more. When I was researching what to buy for digital art my budget was less than $100 so most tablets were way out of my comfort zone. Luckily, the little tablet had my back. It’s $69.95 at Staples but felt like it was worth so much more.
Drawing on this tablet was a little weird at first. It usually takes a few days to get used to drawing on a smooth surface with a plastic nib after drawing on paper for your entire life. But after conquering the awkwardness, it becomes really smooth and easy to draw on. The only real complain I have, and many others talk about this too, is that the screen size compared to the size of the drawing tablet is difficult to draw with. Every dot on this tablet represents a part of your screen. So, when you make a small stroke on your tablet it will make a big line on your screen depending on its size. I had a pretty small computer so it worked out fine, but if you have a large computer or monitor that you draw on you may want to keep this in mind.
If you are a person just starting out with digital art and you have a tight budget this tablet will work great for you. It worked wonders for me in school and I don’t regret purchasing it at all. Although, if you want to do a little more research, here are some of the videos I watched when I was researching tablets as well:
