What tablet, stylus and software would you recommend for digital sketching?
welcome to the boards! There have been a couple of discussion about tablets in the past and you will find most of your answers there. Use the ‘search’ function to find them but I’ll tell you the best ones:
If you want the best scenario of an all-in-one unit (available today), get a Toshiba Tecra M7 (either factory refurb’d or a gently used one from eBay - but make sure it has the Nvidia GPU) - it’s a 14.1" Wacom screen flip tablet and had a speedy processor. We have a few of them in the studio. They run Sketchbook Pro, Rhino, SW, Adobe Suite, Office, etc with no issues, but the best feature is that the screen is great for sketching, it has the least feeling of ‘disconnectedness’ of the flip scre…
