cintiq ? ipad pro ? something else ?
« on: August 15, 2017, 01:44:45 PM »
hey everyone ~

i wanted to see what different people's experience has been with drawing tablets with screens, mainly the cintiq and ipad pro.

i've been intending to save for a cintiq ( i currently use a wacom intuos manga; no screen ), but i recently saw that people've been using the ipad pro instead it seems.

just wanted to hear what the different opinions and experiences were with different screen drawing tablets. what's been your guys' experience with them ? what's different between the different kinds ? what would you personally recommend ?

i'm gonna continue looking into it, but i wanted to hear opinions from here ~

I use Cintiq

Lotsa wires,, (and it seems it doesn't plug into some computers so check that before you buy) but it does the job. I wouldn't know how it compares to an iPad pro though. My biggest complaint about it is that sometimes it makes streaming on certain platforms other than join.me a chore because it makes my computer work double time.

I think the biggest difference is portibility? Ipad pro can draw anywhere but the cintique can boast the power of a computer since it's just an attachment. There's also the hybrids now that are both....

I have an iPad Pro I got a few months ago and absolutely love it! It's smooth, you can tame it anywhere and it's cheaper than a cintique so that's a plus. The only downside is you can't use programs you can only use iPad apps to draw unless you get a program like astropad that basically turns your iPad into a cintinque. This doesn't bother me, though, because the apps I use are really good.

No prob! Hope that helps! I personally would recommend an iPad Pro for any digital artist but it's not for everyone

If you're looking for another cheaper alternative there's always the surface pro. It is fully functional as an artist tablet and computer like the cintique but portable and cheaper even than the iPad Pro depending on what you get

The surface pro 2 and under both have Wacom drivers in them as well, so they're similar to cintiques
