Default Graphics Tablet

I'm interested in buying a Graphics Tablet.

Those anyone have any advice, such as Brand, or if there are different types?

Thanks in advance.

How much practice have you got with them?

Id recommend borrowing one from a friend if you can before spending money on one. Get a feeling for the medium then make a decision. I forked out on a really cheap one, got a feeling for it, then went and spent the big bucks on one I knew would suit me.

I've tried one when I was in school, but that was ages ago.

I'll see if I can find some cheap ones, that'll help

I got one for 20 of Amazon. It works well enough for an amateur like me. :P

Well I have worked with quite a few of them. They have actually have improved quite a bit in the last year or so.

These are the very best:


With the Cintiqs you can draw directly on the screen.

You also have the cheaper ones from wacom that are a tablet and not a drawing screen:


Both are really nice, but the intuos will take some effort to get used to, since you draw on the tablet and look at the computer.

Niether of these are cheap. Some of the higher end cintiqs are over a $1000.00.

And then there's another step down from the Intuos with the Bamboo. I bought one of these a few years back and enjoyed it quite a bit the little I get around to using it. Granted that I haven't used it for all that much, I've never had a problem with it.

Yeah, I've got a Bamboo too. Eventually I'm sure I'll need a much more top quality product, but this one is fine for me at the moment. It gives me a pen that can work as a mouse, and a tablet to draw on. After using it a few times it just becomes natural and doesn't feel as weird, plus you're only looking at about 60-80.
