Why use a drawing tablet?

The use of a drawing tablet has now become essential for computer drawing, illustration, graphic design or photo editing. Indeed, it brings ergonomics, comfort of use and fluidity of movement that digital drawing enthusiasts, as well as professionals, require for the creation of their digital works. With the use of the graphic pad, composed of a touch tablet and a stylus, and after a time of adaptation, you will finally be able to draw quickly, with natural movements, far from the imprecision of a mouse or a laptop trackpad.

What type of graphics / drawing tablet should I choose?

With so many models from all the manufacturers such as Wacom (Intuos, Cintiq), XP-Pen, Huion to choose from, and depending on your budget, buying a tablet can seem complicated, especially when you're a beginner in digital drawing and discovering this new world. However, there are three main categories, each with a wide range of brands and models of graphic tablets:

  • The graphic tablet without screen: The most accessible, and also the one with an attractive quality-price ratio for beginners. This tablet is the most affordable entry-level and mid-range solution to discover the world of computer drawing. Its nomadic aspect, sometimes thanks to its integrated battery, is a significant advantage for those who wish to draw or train outside or while traveling. After a time of adaptation compared to traditional drawing, this type of material requiring to look at the computer screen and not its hand to see what one draws, you will be able to quickly start your most beautiful works of digital art in a simple and inventive way thanks to the various options proposed by the drawing computer and add them to your digital sketchbook.

  • The graphics tablet with HD screen: With its integrated high-resolution touchscreen, this type of high-end graphics tablet provides instant visual feedback at the hand level, while being able to directly use the drawing software tools. This type of tablet does have its drawbacks, however. Except designers or graphic professionals, its price-performance ratio is not optimal for the most users, from the beginner wishing to discover the graphic tablets, to the occasional user for whom drawing by computer remains a hobby, or for professionals whose use of a graphic tablet remains episodic. Moreover, its connection to the mains does not allow it to be used on the go.

  • The scanner tablet: This type of drawing pad, still little known to the general public, really bridges the gap between the world of traditional drawing and digital. The tablet scanner allows you to put a sheet of paper on the active surface of the tablet, and, while drawing with your favorite pencil, your drawing is reproduced in real time on the software. This makes it the best tablet, with the best quality/price ratio, for the experienced drawer who wants to distribute or edit his works digitally, while keeping the grip and the sensations of drawing on paper, without investing in a tablet with a too expensive screen.

What are the advantages of the Repaper drawing tablet?

When you buy an iskn Repaper tablet, you get the perfect bridge to draw conventionally while saving your sketches to a dedicated digital drawing software. Thanks to this graphic tablet, you will no longer need time to adjust your hand-eye coordination between the drawing area and your computer screen. Work directly on your sketch on paper, and it is displayed directly on the drawing software, thanks to the magnetic ring affixed to your traditional pencil.

Given the use of your usual drawing material (pencil, pen...), you will no longer have the fear of losing or breaking your digital styluses, which are often expensive, and sometimes less ergonomic than your traditional tools. You will also be able to install multiple customizable and programmable shortcuts, thanks to the buttons featured on the frame of the graphic tablet. With all the advantages of a graphic tablet without a screen, but with all the sensations of drawing with a pencil, the Repaper graphic tablet is the ideal tool for beginners and seasoned artists who want to go digital for art sketching or art drawing.

What technology does the Repaper Drawing Tablet use?

The pressure detection and sensitivity levels, with its Multi-Pixel Pressure Sensitivity technology and its 8,192 pressure levels, allows you to faithfully reproduce on screen the pressure exerted by the pencil on paper. Play with the graphic sensitivity and vary the intensity and thickness of your line by modulating the pressure applied by your pencil on the Repaper drawing surface. Thanks to the magnetometers that track the Repaper Ring slid onto your drawing pen, the tablet knows the position and tilt of your writing tool above paper.

With the magnetic ring, the iskn Repaper allows you to transfer your drawings on paper instantly to your software. The Repaper drawing tablet also features a rechargeable battery that can last up to 6 hours, a built-in 4MB memory and a Micro SD memory card reader that can hold up to 32GB.

How to use a drawing tablet for the first time?

Once you have connected your tablet to your computer, and connected it to your digital drawing software, make sure it is as ergonomic as possible to use. Organize your workspace and program each useful shortcut on the buttons on your graphics tablet. This will allow you to work more efficiently and quickly. Then practice using the pen stylus, discover the tools in your drawing program, and experience the new feel of the drawing pad for digital drawing.

With a tablet scanner like the Repaper, you'll find it easier to find your marks, since the drawing is done directly on paper and is transmitted in real time to your computer. You will be able to start digital drawing more quickly than if you were to use a simple tablet without a screen. You can check here our beginner tutorial on how to get started with drawing tablets.

How to learn to draw with the Repaper drawing tablet?

The iskn Repaper is what we call a tablet scanner. Perfect for beginners in digital drawing, it allows you to draw directly on a sheet of paper, by placing it on the work surface, sensitive to the pressure level exerted by your favorite pencil. The magnetic Ring installed on your drawing tools and the pressure sensors of the tablet, faithfully reproduce what you draw on your work area.

Thus, no need for adjustment time. The graphic designer who is used to working on paper will be able to keep his habits to make sketches directly on the computer. To carry out retouching on software, the Repaper can then be used like any other graphic tablet without a screen. You will need to equip yourself with a digital pen like the Repaper Stylus, practice working on the graphics board, and discover all the options offered by your graphics software, while keeping your eye on the computer screen.

How long does it take to become a good designer?

Not everyone progresses at the same pace. The only certainty is that the more you draw, the faster you will progress. Draw regularly, and every day if possible, to work on your drawing skills and progress efficiently. Don't try to push details to perfection when you first start.

Trying to skip steps will only slow you down in your learning process. Progress at your own pace and be aware of what you are doing, becoming a good draftsman requires above all consistency and hard work, and in a few weeks/months, you will see your progress materialize before your eyes.

What drawing software should I use with my graphics tablet?

Many software programs are compatible with the iskn Repaper tablet, under Windows and Mac OS.
