Wacom Intuos Art Pen and Touch Tablet

Wacom Intuos Art Pen and Touch Tablet

[Edited to add: There is a new model for this series called the Wacom Intuos Medium, Bluetooth, Black (CTL6100WLK0). You have the option of picking two colors, black or pistachio.

You can read the review about the new small size tablet called The Wacom Intuos Drawing Tablet CTL4100WLK0 – Review here. The biggest difference between these two versions is the size and price.]

Wacom is well-known for creating very high-quality products, and the Wacom Intuos Art Pen and Touch Graphics Tablet is no exception.

Artists can do great work here. They can also manage to do so fairly comfortably.

While the Wacom Intuos Art Pen and Touch does not prioritize comfort as much as some of the other similar products on the market, many people have still been able to create a lot of fantastic works of art using this device.

Features

thinking_manThe Wacom Intuos Art Pen and Touch medium Tablet is just the sort of tablet that will help people become more educated on art, as well as enabling them to have more freedom and flexibility when it comes to doing art. The art pack feature includes online tutorials, photo prints, art software, and a photo album.

The art stylus is easy to use, creates a range of lines with different intensities, and will not use batteries or run out of energy.

The tablet surface itself is easy to use and easy to manipulate, so it is going to be that much easier for people to get the results that they want from their artwork.

The Wacom Intuos Art Pen and Touch Graphics Tablet has enough software compatibility that artists are going to have plenty of basic tools at their disposal.

 Huion Micro USB Drawing Big Size Graphics Tablet with 8G SD Card and Rechargeable Pen

The Huion Micro USB Drawing Big Size Graphics Tablet has a rechargeable pen as opposed to a pen which is not run using batteries in the first place, which represents the next step.

The Huion Micro USB Drawing Big Size Graphics Tablet has many of the same capabilities as the Wacom Intuos Art Pen and Touch, but the Wacom tablet may ultimately be easier for people to use.

The Ugee 2150 Graphics Tablet Digital Pen Drawing Monitor IPS Screen is one of the most high-quality products in this range on the market today.box_cartoon

However, it is also one of the most expensive, so people are certainly going to have to pay for the quality in every way.

The Wacom Intuos Art Pen and Touch medium Tablet will still give people good service. However, the Wacom tablet will do so in a much more convenient package.

Verdict

The Wacom Intuos Art Pen and Touch Graphics Tablet really demonstrate all of the reasons why Wacom has a positive reputation.

I recommend reading about the newer model The Wacom Intuos Drawing Tablet CTL4100WLK0 – Review before making a purchasing decision.

People can create excellent artwork using this medium and very convenient package which was designed to have a perfect size.

While Wacom is truly one of the best brands in the market, there are other brands with similar features. Look at our Top 5 Drawing Tablets for Beginners list to see their unique features.

  1. So why are there different versions like Draw, Art, Photo and Comic? I’m kinda of stuck trying to decide which Wacom tablet is best for me.

    • Hi Katrice,
      As I understand, each Wacom tablet comes with its own art software. So for example, this Wacom Intuos Art CTH690AB comes with Corel Painter Essentials 5 software. The Wacom Intuos Comic CTH490CB is packaged with Clip Studio Paint Pro and Anime Studio. When making a decision on which to buy, first find out what type of art you will be creating. Best of luck!
