About Drawing Tablets and Digital Pens
Professionals and hobbyists use graphics tablets and pens to take digital art to a whole new level. Accessories such as tablet mounts and stands make your workflow even easier.
What Are Graphics Tablets?
Other names for these devices include drawing tablets or digital art tablets. Using them alongside computers allows you to create digital images or writing. Tablets consist of hard work surfaces that respond to touch and pressure. The movements created on tablet screens display on different computer screens via software such as art programs. While most varieties show the work via computer monitors, there are other top-tier graphics drawing tablets that possess built-in displays. Some models are wireless, so there's no need for cables.
Using Tablet Pens
Tablet pens and styluses are the instruments you use for working with the tablets. Features vary from pen to pen, such as nibs, grips, and other specs. Preferred for drawing, digital art pens with eraser tips and side switches provide easy shortcuts for different functions. Most tablets come with pens, and pen display tablets include stand-alone or built-in mounts. If you already own a touch-screen device or tablet, it's possible to buy individual styluses and digital art pens to customize your work space.
Accessories for Drawing and Graphics Tablets
In addition to drawing tablets and pens, other accessories can enhance your setup. Some graphics tablets and handwriting accessories include different varieties of pen nibs, soft cases to protect from dust and scratches, connectors, and texture screens. Accessory kits are an ideal way to get a wide variety of pen components like grips and other replacement parts. Other convenient accessories are tablet mounts and stands that hold your device in place while you work. Many stands rotate and are adjustable to fit your working preferences.
