Having a quality drawing tool can work wonders for both creativity and productivity. But which one is right for you? There are three main things to consider when buying a drawing tablet – active drawing area, operation and overall size. Here we'll go through each of these in more detail, and highlight products along the way to help you choose the best tablet to suit your needs.
01. Size matters(opens in new tab)
When buying a drawing tablet, there are two things to consider when it comes to size: the active drawing area and the overall size of the display. If you want a huge space to draw on freely, you'd be hard pushed to find a better option than the XPPen Artist 24 Pro (opens in new tab), which boasts a whopping 23.8-inch screen. And just over 20 of those inches are reserved purely for drawing. The extra either side of the active drawing space is filled with handy controls, including two easy-to-control red dial wheels and 20 customisable shortcut keys, making them easily accessible for both left and right-handed users.
To make things even better, the Artist Pro 24 display resolution is high – 2560 X 1440 pixels (or 2K in short), meaning artwork is crystal clear and sharp as a pin.
If all that wasn't enough, the XPPen Artist 24 Pro also features a fully adjustable stand, meaning you can change the angle to best suit your creative needs. And a specially designed pen slot means never again losing the device's impressive PA2 battery-free stylus.

02. Digital art made easy(opens in new tab)
Starting out in digital art can be incredibly daunting, especially if you're not familiar with the hardware. While some drawing tablets have a steep learning curve, the XPPen Artist 15.6 Pro (opens in new tab) and XPPen Artist 13.3 Pro (opens in new tab) are not only some of the best devices available right now, to set up and start using them takes just minutes.
This is mostly due to their easy-to-operate red dial and eight shortcut buttons, the latter of which can be programmed to fully support your work style. The red dial at your fingertips allows you to quickly and easily zoom in and out of a canvas, as well as scroll and down smoothly and accurately. And with two size options, there's a Pro XPPen tablet for everyone.

03. The number one choice for artists on the go(opens in new tab)
For many digital artists, portability with hardware is key. And that can be quite tricky if your 24-inch drawing tablet is your only display. So, if you're an artist that spends a lot of time working on the go, or you're new to digital art, XPPen's Artist Series – specifically the XPPen Artist 10 (2nd Gen) (opens in new tab) and XPPen Artist 12 (2nd Gen) (opens in new tab) drawing tablets – are the perfect solution.
