  1. My whole life i never gave art a proper go because i thought you needed to just be born talented as both my parents are very good at art and i am definitely not… Only now did i realise that it just takes time and practise. Super excited to give it a good try now!

  2. I am self-taught with using a mouse to make digital art because I was young and had no money for a tablet, and I honestly got pretty good at it, but holy hell the difference it made when I bought a $40 second-hand lowest tier Bamboo tablet. The change in quality and enjoyment I got from such a small device is insane. It's worth the investment even if it's just a hobby. You might think you won't use it that much but for me personally I started drawing much more often after getting it.

  3. instead of an ipad i recomend a samsung galaxy tab a8 if you want something cheaper

    Price ~30USD

  4. I have a Wacom one and I love it. Really mad at myself for not getting an iPad though I hate being stuck at the computer, although it helps me keep working on traditional which is my love.

  5. My Huion HS 64 is working so much better than the entry level wacom I bought as my first tablet. I had so many pen disconnects and issues with the wacom that I probably won't buy the brand ever again.

    I'm excited for when I can buy the Xiaomi pad and pen as it's windows compatible which will work with my workflow better than apple products. Do you have a review on it yet?

  6. One question I have is for the drawing pads that have a screen, why do they need to be connected to a PC/laptop still? And does the PC/laptop need to have good specs like the non-screen pads?

  7. A lot of really good more modern artist who were trained as graphic artist have become great oil painters. How or what is the process ? I am total confused. Any help appreciated.ex; Greg Newbold; ( I like Southwest art).

  8. great video as always man 👏👏👏👏👏
    planning to upgrade to display tablet from pen tablet, and thingking of choosing xp pn artist 12 (budget based)
    is there any other who have xp pen 12 artist who would like to share their experience regarding issues etc??
    im looking for a bigger monitor and kamvas 13 is on the same budget, but.. my pen tablet is huion and unfortunately the pen and driver has issues (i think the pen is starting to died on me 😭)
    so between these two, wdyt?
    bcs it has to last 2-3 years or maybe more for me 😅

  9. After watching your XP-Pen Artist 12 review a few years back, I decided to purchase it and I am totally happy with it. I did not even have to swap the pen tip yet (even though they sent several replacement tips with it, so I thought they would break fast). It is small but thus it fits perfectly on smaller desks in front of the monitor. Imo it is perfect for starters and hobbyists.
    (The drivers act a bit weird from time to time though.)

  10. I can say from experience you want a drawing tablet before a monitor tablet. It does not get easier to "see" what you're drawing on. Paper medium does not transfer 1:1 to monitor tablet. I'd argue it transfers better to a drawing tablet.

    Personally I've had a lot of cramps and frustration with a monitor tablet. The posture isn't great and it's more difficult to draw at the stand's angle with your arm and even worse when you use your wrist.
