How about XP-Pen Star05 drawing tablet for Photo Retouching
« on: April 17, 2018, 09:38:28 am »
Hello guys

I've been drawing traditionally ever since I was young. I am at an intermediary stage, according to me. I have been drawing digitally for 3 years now. I'm a little above the amateur stage I'd say.
I want to get a drawing tablet now(The previous one wasn't meant for drawing. But it had display.)
I am looking for a non-display type. So, I did a little research. Went through most of XP-Pen's products. And I liked the stars line.
I went through the specifications. Draw, Art, Photo and Comic.
I liked Comic and Art. I'm considering about buying XP-Pen Star 05 ( ). But the reviews section had many negative reviews. So, I wanted to ask you artists for advice.
Also, any good drawing programmes for drawing and a different one for 2D animation? Both free and paid?
I've been using Sketchbook Express, Autodesk Sketchbook and Artrage like, Art Flow, Art Rage on the previous tablet and Krita and Paint Tool sai on PC. Sketchbook ex used to be my favourite.
Thanks for reading! Awaiting your replies.

Assuming you're working on Windows, have a look at Leonardo. I like the features it's offering, like the infinite canvas. I'm not affiliated in any way.
