Why use a drawing tablet?

The use of a graphics 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 tablet, 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 of graphics tablets to choose from, and depending on your budget, buying a tablet can seem complicated, especially if you're a beginner in digital drawing and discovering this new world. There are three main categories of graphics tablets, each with a wide range of brands and models:

  • The graphic tablet without screen: The most accessible 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 portable size and integrated battery are significant advantages for those who wish to draw or train outside or while traveling. After a time of adaptation compared to traditional drawing since this type of equipment requires to look at the computer display to see what one draws, you can quickly begin to draw your most beautiful works in a simple and inventive way thanks to the options offered by computer drawing.

  • The graphics tablet with HD screen: With its integrated high-resolution screen, this kind of high-end graphics tablet provides instant visual feedback at the hand level, while being able to directly use drawing software tools. This type of tablet does have its drawbacks, however. Except for design or graphic professionals, its price-performance ratio is not optimal for most users, from the beginner wishing to discover the graphic tablets, to the occasional user for whom drawing with a 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 graphics tablet, still little known to the general public, really bridges the gap between the world of traditional drawing and digital. The scanner tablet 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 artworks digitally, while keeping the grip and the sensations of drawing on paper, without investing in an expensive tablet with a display.

Regardless of the type of tablet, there is no "ideal" size. However, the recommended size is A4 (8.5 x 11 inches) or A5 (5.8 x 8.3 inches). This is the format that is most commonly found on the market. But there is also a size that corresponds to an A6 sheet (4.1 x 5.8 inches) and even an A7 sheet (2.9 x 4.1 inches). It is up to you to pick the size of your tablet, depending on your preferences when it comes to the size of the drawing area.

What are the advantages of the Repaper drawing tablet?

When buying an ISKN Repaper tablet, you're getting the perfect combination of conventional drawing and dedicated digital drawing software to save your sketches. Unlike other models, with this graphic tablet, you won't need time to adjust your hand-eye coordination between the drawing area and your computer display.

Work directly on your sketch on paper, and it will be displayed directly and with great precision on the drawing software, thanks to the magnetic ring affixed to your traditional pencil. Since you will be using your usual drawing tools (pencil, pen...), you will no longer be afraid of losing or damaging your digital stylus, which are often expensive and sometimes less ergonomic than your traditional tools. Then export your drawings in JPG, PNG, PSD (resolution: 300 ppi / lpi), SVG (vector) or MP4 (video) formats and share them instantly with your friends.

You can also configure multiple customizable and programmable shortcuts using the keys on the graphic tablet's frame. With all the advantages of a graphic tablet without a display, but still with the feel of pencil drawing, the Repaper graphic tablet is the ideal tool for beginners and experienced designers who want to go digital.

What technology does the Repaper Drawing Tablet use?

Pressure detection and sensitivity levels, with its Multi-Pixel Pressure Sensitivity technology and its 8,192 pressure levels, allow you to faithfully reproduce on screen the pressure exerted by the pencil on paper. Adjust the graphic sensitivity and vary the intensity and thickness of your strokes 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 pencil, the tablet knows the position and tilt of your writing tool above paper.

Operating as a "real time digitizer", the ISKN Repaper offers you the possibility to instantly transfer your paper drawings to your software. The Repaper graphics tablet also features a rechargeable battery (USB-B), which can last up to 6 hours, a 4 MB built-in memory and a Micro SD memory card reader that can accommodate up to 32 GB.

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 scanner tablet. Perfect for beginners in digital drawing, it offers you the possibility 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 work on paper will be able to keep his/her habits to make sketches directly on the computer.

To carry out retouching on software, the Repaper can be used like any other graphic tablet without a display. You will need to equip yourself with a digital stylus 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.
