Why it made the cut: The iPad Air opens the door for digital drawing, but it’s great for everything else, too. Standalone Drawing Tablets: Not to be confused with tablets like iPad, the standalone drawing tablets work independently from any other device and come with some software pre-installed. They’re essentially small computers with integrated screens and are a great companion for digital artists that prefer to travel with their drawing tools.
Although this tablet has a screen, don’t forget that it’s not a standalone device. You’ll still need to connect it to your computer for it to function. You can easily slip a compact tablet into any bag, so you can work from anywhere. But you might find that small active area a bit limiting. Screen Resolution, Parallax, & TextureSome factors to look out for are pen sensitivity and response time. The faster the response time, the less lag you’ll experience as you draw. The Boogie Board Play and Trace LCD Writing Tablet is a great way to introduce your kids to drawing and writing. The battery-powered 13.5×9 tablet features a large, semi-transparent screen that lets your child trace their favorite image or draw freehand.

BONUS: Wacom Cintiq Pro 32 32-inch Best for Large Display 1. Wacom Cintiq 22 Drawing Tablet Full HD Screen 21.5-inch To choose the best drawing tablets, we look at all of the major - and smaller - players in the market from Wacom and XPPen to Xencelabs and general-use manufacturers like Apple and Microsoft.Most drawing tablets come with a digital pen, also commonly known as a stylus. While all digital pens are styluses, not all styluses are digital pens: In general, a digital pen works in conjunction with a specific device or set of devices, offering variable pressure sensitivity and digital buttons. Since most tablets offer a pen by default, with only a few upgrade options, finding one that feels right is as important as any aspect of the tablet itself. We'll then draw, write and experiment with the tablet to see how natural it feels, identify any glitches and make sure it would be suitable for use over long periods. How do I choose the best drawing tablet for me?
