New Toy! XP-Pen Artist 10s

Mon May 8, 2017, 9:39 PM
I only write journals when I have something interesting to share 😅

And boy do I! Since first working with a tablet, I've only known the Wacom brand.  I've had three touch tablets, the Bamboo Fun, Intuos, and Intuos Art.  I decided it was time for a screen. I've always envied artists with their fancy pants monitor tablets, but honestly, I couldn't justify spending $800 for a Cintiq because I'm not good enough for one 😭  Thankfully I've found a solution!

I recently purchase an XP-Pen Artist 10s. It's a lesser known brand with intermediate level monitor tablets that have a good reputation. For $300 on Amazon, I was willing to give it a try.

It's WAY easier to draw now with this. I've drawn on and off for years (mostly because of my busy life), and I often found myself frustrated because I felt like I wasn't improving.  I'm realizing now I needed better tools.

Guess the disconnect between my hand and eyes on a basic tablet was more severe than I thought. On the 10s, everything feels natural and fluid. It makes me WANT to draw again, which is a beautiful thing.  I've been up late doodling every night since I got it. The first thing I tried was redrawing Isis, I think it came out pretty well. 😊🦄




Hopefully, this means more art soon and more consistently from here on out. I'm truly in love with this little gadget. 💻♥🎨✏️  


If you're looking for a budget monitor tablet I highly recommend this one, it doesn't disappoint!

Chibi Isis 2017
I quite enjoy drawing Isis now with my new tablet.  Overall like the drawing, coloring could use work, I used a brush that was too soft kind of reverting back to my old way of coloring, BAD, will not do again.  I referenced some tutorials in my faves for her gem, eyes, and hair. I am trash when it comes to backgrounds but I really like how this one came out all tie-dye and whatnot.

Finding so many amazing artists on Tumblr, I'm late to the game but WOW.
I've been drawing so much since I got my new tablet I have a thumb cramp 😅

2017 Isis Bust
It's been a very long time since I've drawn my girl Isis, I'm so glad she's back :heart:  I recently acquired my first monitor tablet & wanted to start with something familiar to get the hang of it.  I'm very pleased with how she came out, I already see a noticeable improvement with my coloring. Her tips aren't visible here except her forelock since she has ridiculously long fantasy pony hair :)
