Webtoon Artist Rambles: About Art Tablet Differences

Webtoon Artist Rambles: About Art Tablet Differences

Two of the biggest differences between drawing tablets and mobile tablets is one has an operational system and the other doesn’t.

Today I want to ramble about the basic differences between display tablets (Think Wacom Cintiq or Huion Tablet) and mobile tablets (Think iPad Pro or Microsoft Surface Pro)

Wacom Display Cintiq Tablet

Do I need a computer or could I use it mobile?

The biggest difference between a display tablet and a hand held tablet is that one needs a computer to plug into.

It doesn’t have an internal computer operating system while a hand held tablet is it’s own stand alone operating system.

This means that with a handle held tablet like the iPad or even your mobile device, all that you would need to create a webtoon is an art app that is compatible for your mobile device and a simple stylus.

If you want to even get real minimal you can just use your phone because of the touch screen capabilities that most mobile devices have.

With display tablets you they’re like an large monitor that you can connect to your computer and draw directly on the screen. 

They are a lot more expensive but to be honest you can get just as much out of a mobile tablet as you can out of one of these big boys and you won’t have to break the bank.

Wacom Cintiq

For me I personally have both because I have an artist hoarding addiction that I’m not prepared to address just yet.

I got my wacom 24HD cintiq back in 2010 so she’s an old girl but she still works like new!

I also have the iPad Pro so that I can sit in the living room or any where else and not be stuck to my desk like I would be with my cintiq.

I also don’t have to worry about a lot of cords like you would if you looked at some of the smaller and more mobile display tablets (I’m looking at you mobile studio pro and Cintiq 16 HD)

What should you do next?
