Not keen on the Intuos Art? Then consider these three alternatives
Trust Flex Ultra-Thin
The latest Flex model is an inexpensive introduction for any beginner. Its paper-thin design is flexible and compact, and has an effective anti-skid bottom to prevent travel when you draw. The pen offers 1,024-step pressure sensitivity and is comfortable to hold, but using the three buttons requires a certain grip in order not to feel awkward. Comes with Trust’s intuitive Artweaver software.
Huion H610 Pro
The Huion H610 Pro’s price point undercuts the entrylevel Intuos range, but has a more plasticky feel for it. Eight Express keys sit along the left-hand ßside of a 10x6-inch active drawing area that has double the pressure sensitivity of the Intuos, but you do seem to have to press harder to get thicker brush strokes compared to Wacom tablets.
Wacom Intuos Pro
The wireless Pro model has double the resolution and twice the pressure sensitivity of the Intuos range, translating to finer control at higher screen resolutions. The Pro can recognise the tilt angle of the pen, offering a more naturalistic stroke, while its Precision mode momentarily lowers sensitivity, making applying detail or drawing fine lines that much easier.
