My Genius Pensketch graphics tablet is utterly craptastic but it was the perfect intro into the world of graphics tablets and has served me well over the last 6 years. I recently decided it was time to upgrade and after much deliberation went with the iPad Pro 12.9″ / Apple Pencil combo. I have not yet even begun to scratch the surface of what it has to offer but I can definitely say that I’m insanely happy with it.
It’s biggest appeal is just how portable it is essentially acting as a digital sketchbook and allowing you to draw on the couch, bed or even the toilet if you want! Another plus for me is just how many awesome cheap / free drawings apps there are. This might not mean much to the professional who uses desktop applications like Photoshop and Illustrator but to a hobbyist such as myself it’s amazing.
