Are you ready to take your webtoon comics to the next level? One of the best ways to do this is by utilizing pen style drawing tablet that is specifically designed for comics. The two tablets that I personally have as my top fav and recommend for making webtoons are the iPad Pro and the Samsung Galaxy Tab.
I do want you to keep in mind that if you aren’t able to get these tablets that doesn’t mean that you can’t take your comics to the next level! You can still create amazing and successful and fun pieces of work using alternative tools, because remember it’s not the paint brush that makes the painter but the painter themselves~
Now let’s hop into some of my current fav recommendations for making a webtoon comic on a tablet…since that’s the whole point of this blog~:
- The iPad Pro is a great choice because it’s budget-friendly, and the pen-to-paper feel is natural. I use the ibispaint app on my iPad Pro, and it’s perfect for drawing and writing notes for my webtoon story scripts.
- Another great option is the Samsung Galaxy Tab, which I personally use with a generic pen stylus and the ibispaint app. The pen-to-paper feel is almost on par with the iPad, and the selection of comic drawing apps that are compatible with Samsung tablets is huge. My favorite app for making webtoons on a tablet is ibispaint, and it’s lightweight so it doesn’t glitch out while I’m inking my webtoon panels.
It’s worth noting that the Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 comes with an S Pen included, so you don’t have to purchase it separately, as you do with the iPad Pro.
If you’re on a budget, traditional digital drawing graphic tablets are great, but they require a computer to work. The iPad and Samsung Galaxy Tablet have their own built-in operating systems, which saves money and eliminates the need to buy a separate computer.
One important thing to keep in mind when looking for a tablet for making webtoon comics is the amount of RAM. Comic-specific art apps like Clip Studio Paint or more artistic digital art apps like Ibispaint or Medibang Paint tend to use about 4GB of RAM. To avoid your tablet from lagging, try to stick to a 16-64GB RAM space if you can afford it.
