Digital drawing - what kind of equipment do you use?
« on: November 22, 2021, 02:09:16 pm »
For years I have been a traditionalist when it comes to drawing, using graphite and inks on paper, but been slowly preparing to break away from the familiar and
advancing into digital. I am not a big spender, or at least a very cautious one, in trying to get it right on the first try, if possible. I have now a better pc to run software and
now I wanted to ask if you, who are more experienced in the matter, what kind of equipment and software do you use?
What are your experiences, favorite brands and models and the like?

Bought an iPad Pro with pencil and it's pretty good tbh. Used to use an old wacom bamboo tablet on my laptop, but the iPad is just convenient for me. So far for apps, I prefer clip studio paint than procreate.

Side note: not a professional artist

Don't be afraid to try something new.

I did once have a keyboard with a digital pen and one of those tablet pads at the side of it but I found the whole thing annoying looking at the screen but not my hand like in traditional pencil to paper was a bitch. I quickly accepted that drawing was best done the old fashioned way.

I ended up buying a Wacom Cintiq 16. It is a tablet that doubles as a screen, onto which I can draw on. Originally I wanted to plug it in to my tabletop pc via HDMI cable, but I noticed that it doesn't connect. I tried connecting it to my old laptop, on which it works just fine. Have to figure out if there is just a port for the HDMI cable, but it isn't connected to anywhere and get it fixed somehow.
I am a bit worried since my pc is a readymade from a store, so there might be limits to this upgrade.

otherwise I could buy a new laptop for my digital drawing needs, but that would be somewhat more expensive, compared to a possible fix to my pc. 
But maybe later.

Nice. Congrats on your new Cintiq! Those cost a lot so hope you get everything sorted out. Show us some of your works, soon. 😁

I did try out Daz3D cone to think of it if that counts. Never got the hang of it before it fucked up my laptop processor power 😂
