My favorite wacom cintiq for $2k-$9k would have to be the wacom Cintiq 24 pro because it’s similar to the amazing Cintiq 24HD discontinued model!
First off I want to preference this that you don’t need to break the bank to find a good, reliable and professional grade tablet.
I saw this question online for those in the market looking for that and I figured I could help answer it since I’ve been using wacom cintiq tablets for over 10+ years.
Now that I got that out of my system, if you just so happen to have a budget of $9k or even $3k to specifically spend on a Wacom Drawing tablet
(despite the fact that there are other a lot more budget friendly and just as functional ones that I cover in this blog post~)
Then look no further because I have the perfect tablet for you to use for all of your digital illustration needs!
It’s the Wacom Cintiq Display tablets!
Wacom is compatible with majority of computer and even smartphone devices and not to mention both free and industry level comic software!
Which makes it not that big of a surprise how well liked they are within the art community~
I have their now discontinued Cintiq 24HD and I’ve used it non-stop for well over 10+ years! But here is a similar replacement of the 24 HD and it’s the Wacom Cintiq Pro 24
Also my Cintiq came with it’s own heavy duty stand but I noticed that the Wacom Cintiq Pro 32 does come with this sturdier albeit heavy stands.
If you want more of versatility with the slant of your display tablet while you draw then you might want to get the stands as well.
- Adjustable Stand for Wacom Cintiq 16
- VESA Mount for Cintiq 24 & 32
- Wacom Flex Arm For Cintiq Pro 24 & 32
- Cintiq Pro 32 Ergo Stand
They do have there own built in stand but it’s slant is closer to a low table top canvas easel than a tall 90 degree angled canva.
Here is a picture of my cintiq stand for reference purpose
Not only is the Cintiq big and sturdy but they are so durable and versatilely compatible with a large majority of art programs both low end and high end!
They have great pen to paper calibration though granted I do have to mention that I feel the iPad pro tablet might have a little better pen to paper feel.
Not only that but also with the iPad Pro I’ve experienced WAY less pen calibration issues like I did with the Wacom Cintiq.
Mind you the pen stylus that I use is the one that is designed for the Cintiq so I don’t know why my Cintiq-qua gives me so many issues with it~
Irregardless of all of that, if you are still dead set on getting a Wacom Display tablet that’s under $9k then the Wacom Cintiq series is definitely the way to go!
This is coming from a digital webtoon artist that will use her display tablet from morning until morning.
Granted my body might end up giving out way before my Cintiq tablet will because I can’t pull those all nighters like I used to…if I do then I need so some tummy medicine cause my stomach will hate me for not resting….
What should you do next?
