The best drawing gloves are essential for digital artists. Sometimes called artist gloves, they only have two fingers and exist to cover the side of your palm that lies on the surface where you're drawing. The fingers you use to grip your stylus, brush or pencil are left uncovered so your control is unaffected. 

Traditionally, drawing glubs were used to reduce the risk of smudging your work – they also avoid sweat or grease getting onto the surface you're working with. Nowadays, they have another purpose for digital work – to stop accidental inputs with digital drawing or painting on an iPad or other tablet and to reduce the friction you get from hand-on-screen (We've got plenty of great suggestions should you be on the hunt for one of the best drawing tablets.)
