    I use xp-pen products a lot and would def recommend the 22” over this 13” (It even comes with a stand) but if you can’t afford the extra budget then this is a good way to go. Just make sure you get a stand with it. In animation you end up using so many panels that very little is left to draw on. So in animation bigger is better. But if you can’t afford the extra moolah then this will work great.

      is it essential for this to be plugged in to a computer? if so, do you know where i can find a drawing tablet that i can like bring anywhere without having to plug it in to anything? i wanna bring it to school and maybe long car drives but all that ive seen on amazon have to be plugged in...

      Hey 👋Alex Clark, I was wondering what made you switch over to Huion?
      I ordered an Xp-pen recently and they sent me a defective tablet and they’re not responding to my emails. :(
      I was wondering if you had any issues with them like this? Any fees back would be helpful. I’ve been feeling super discouraged by the whole thing. Thank you!

    I know this video is kinda old, but is there any drawing tablets that don't need a computer? Like I searched it up on Google and...I'm more confused now...
    I really love drawing (mostly dragons) and I would really love to have a drawing tablet but I don't have a computer. So is there a drawing tablet that doesn't need a laptop or computer??

      @Soggy Crepes believe or not , I draw decent manga using huion intuos

    • Soggy Crepes
      Soggy Crepes 4 months ago

      Yes start with an intuos if you can't afford anything else, but if you want something that is more intuitive and doesn't require weeks of getting used to (sometimes more of a month or two for others) then I'd choose this. It's cheap, it's recommended, and I personally wish I had the ability to use something like this when I was starting out. Intuoses are fine, but if you can get a screen display why the hell not? Again, if you want to get something that you can use but is meant for beginners an intuos or HUION (though they've never lasted me more than a year), or any other graphics tablet is great.

    • 0n 9
