Bring your creative ideas to life with Huion tablets – the next natural step for digital artists. It’s like drawing on paper, just faster and smoother.

Investing in a graphics tablet will greatly improve your work speed and accuracy. The pointer moves as fast as the hand moves offering greater control, and the clicks/selections on a pen save time when navigating to a menu or button. And holding a pen is more ergonomic than holding a mouse, which helps prevent strain by keeping your hand in a more relaxed position. This natural movement then translates in greater control for making fine changes which can be frustrating to do when working with a mouse. With digital art, you can also save or fix your work which isn’t possible for traditional art tools.

Pen vs Mouse

A drawing tablet comes with a pressure-sensitive pen that allows a more natural input for activities like drawing, designing and photo retouching. Instead of repeating slides as with conventional mouses, the pen lets your hand travel in a single movement from point A to point B making your work faster, more efficient and more precise. It also lets you vary their stroke width, and programmable buttons streamline commands that take longer when navigation with a mouse. A mouse is good for general computer use, but a pen tablet works better when working on design programmes like Adobe Photoshop and Lightroom. You can use them alongside each other as the drivers won’t interfere, or replace your mouse completely.

When looking at tablet specifications, the first thing to consider is the tablet’s screen size. A smaller tablet is conveniently portable but may constrict hand movement if it is too small in comparison with your computer screen. For high-resolution work that looks great when enlarged from print, opt for a tablet with a higher read resolution, which is indicated as the number of lines per inch (LPI) in the horizontal or vertical direction of an image. Next, take note of the tablets’ varying pressure levels. A good pressure level of 1024 and up allows the user to vary their stroke width for more subtle differences. Also, consider the tablets’ read speeds and induction heights as these affect usability. A good read speed processes data faster allowing for a faster display and smoother drawing experience. Induction height refers to the maximum width from the board when the pressure pen senses the tablet. A suitable induction height is typically about 10-15mm.
