Recommendations?

:iconbuneep:
buneep Featured By Owner Nov 5, 2012
Christmas is coming soon (not really) and my parents are already
asking me what I want this year. I'm thinking a new Wacom tablet.
Im currently using the Bamboo Pen and Touch and it's great and
all, but I've been using it for years and I've spilled many
things on this tablet. Theres a few issues now. lol.

Any recommendations on what tablet I should get? Im not looking
for something for real professionals, just as a hobbyist. Also,
if you have any recommendations for drawing software besides
Photoshop and SAI, that'd be great too. (:

Well, I use the Bamboo Splash. It's light and handy, easy to use, comes with an awesome drawing program, and is only $70. It's a great tablet, especially for a hobbyist- a nice, basic tablet and is sturdy and portable.

Honestly, I use Bamboo create. It's good if you want a tabby that you can just jump on and use.
Sketchbook Pro might be something you can look into. Opencanvas is alot like SAI but it still has its own features.^^
There's also GIMP and FireAlpaca if you want free software. MyPaint or Krita might also be some options.

idk what your budget is but...
if you have more money to spend ...look into the wacom Intuos5 series. small($230) or medium($350) will be fine depending on your budget. They have a combo with the large and corel painter for($570) or just corel painter is ($250)....If thats a little out of your price range i would recommend the wacom bamboo create($175-200), it comes with a better pen then the other bamboos. I would stick with wacom tablets.


IF your in school they have a deal for students, gets a little price cut.[link]

Intuos is probably too expensive for me, but it sounds awesome. (:
I had my eyes on the Create... I think that one might be the best for me.

Im not in school, but thanks for the link :)

I have a VisTablet and it has served me very well for around four years, and still works great. VisTablets are much cheaper than Wacom's to, and just as good.

As for programs, there's always Photoshop and Corel Painter to name a couple.

I don't know a lot about tablets seeing that I don't have one either ^^;

But for drawing programs, there's FireAlpaca and Gimp~ But I personally like SAI best XD
