Keep taking the tablets
If the Intuos and ZBrushCore combo doesn’t appeal, there are more tablets to choose from…
Wacom Intuos series Web www.wacom.eu Price From £67 to £84
Wacom offers four other tablets with bundled software. The Intuos Art (£84) comes with Painter Essentials and is the same size as the Intuos 3D. The other three are smaller, with a 6x3.7-inch drawing area: the Draw (£67) includes ArtRage Lite; the Photo (£84) features PaintShop Pro, Macphun Creative Kit and AfterShot Pro; and the Comic version (£84) comes with Anime Studio Debut. Wacom Intuos Pro series Web www.wacom.eu Price From £157 to £315 The Intuos Pro is what most artists probably think of when you say “Intuos” – and it’s certainly what they crave. The largest has a generous 12.8x8-inch drawing area, the pens and related accessories are a dream to draw with, and the various shortcut keys mean you can customise your workflow to suit your style.
Huion Giano WH1409 Web www.huiontablet.com Price £130
Wacom is the best-known tablet maker, but nowadays there’s a vast selection from other companies, starting from as little as £25. This particular model stands out by offering wireless connectivity, a 13.8x8.6-inch drawing area (the largest in the world, Huion says) and 12 shortcut keys.
