Design And Features

The XP-Pen Artist Drawing Pad is not designed as a standalone device. It’s a drawing tablet that connects to your computer, and you’ll then use the graphics package of your choice on it (XP-Pen also has many models with different sizes). What I’m reviewing here is their 15.6″ Pro Edition model; this version comes in Holiday edition packaging which includes some whimsical additions like anime artwork–all cute and fun if you’re into that sort. The XP-Pen Artist Drawing Pad will not work on its own. You must connect the tablet to your computer and use a graphics package like Photoshop or Illustrator for it to function effectively.

The 15.6″ Pro Edition is especially great because of its large drawing area, but you can also choose from other sizes as well (13” and 10’). This specific model comes with some fun extras, in addition, to being “holidays edition,” which include an enamel pin, desk calendar that features anime-style artwork and greeting card/pop phone stand featuring similar artistry – all cute & whimsical. The included tablet stand is lightweight and set at a fixed angle. The stylus itself does not require any battery or charging, instead of relying on its soft grip material for handling the pen. The Ten One Design Pogo Sketch Tablet is a lightweight pen and tablet combination that has an integrated stand for your desktop. The stylus itself requires no battery or charging, it’s designed with soft grip material where the handling happens and includes two-button controls on its side.

Performance

The 15.6 Pro’s USB connection cable can be plugged into the tablet and provide power to both, so no need for an AC adapter or external battery pack if you want it on the go. It is also surprisingly light but still feels durable enough for heavy-handed artists; some people may experience distortion when pressing down onto the screen as well at its edges closest to them though most will not notice this issue during normal use of their device. The pen remains silent while drawing with it in order to eliminate any distractions from clicking noise that could distract those around you too much. The 15.6 Pro’s USB connection cable allows you to both connect the display and draw power with the same cable so that you don’t need to attach it to an AC adapter. It can even be run from an external power bank for added portability- heavy-handed artists may find they experience distortion on their screen when pressing down onto it or near its edges, but most people will not have any issues at all. The tablet runs silently.

Key Features

The 15.6 has eight built-in shortcut keys positioned down the side of the tablet, alongside the new red dial which can be programmed to zoom in and out, alter brush sizes, and so on. The stand provides a similar angle to that found with Cintiq 16’s foldout legs but does not attach firmly onto it as other models do; we leaned too heavily on-screen once only for it tilts sideways momentarily before becoming upright again without any harm done. The 15.6 has eight built-in shortcut keys alongside the new red dial, which can be programmed to zoom in and out, alter brush sizes, and so on. It also comes with a stand that provides a similar angle to the Cintiq 16’s foldout legs. The stand works well but is made of plastic; it didn’t attach securely when we leaned too heavily into our drawing once – but this was an anomaly because there are no mounting holes for attaching your tablet anywhere else or place it down without worry (which makes sense if you’re going mobile). The XP-Pen Artist 15.6 Pro is a great bit of kit but can sometimes struggle with pressure sensitivity in certain programs, and it’s not the best tablet for illustrating heavy detail work either. Despite these issues though, we think this would make an excellent introductory drawing tablet because its price/quality ratio is brilliant too – you get a lot of bang for your buck. For creatives on a budget, it doesn’t get much better than the XP-Pen Artist 15.6 Pro drawing tablet; while not perfect for everyone’s needs, this is one of the best values you’ll find in tablets today. It features an easy setup process and great portability (easy to pack away or take with) that make working from home even more enjoyable The price/quality ratio is brilliant – no longer do professionals have exclusive rights over awesome screens like these. This product will be especially loved by those just starting out as artists

This review of the XP-Pen Artist 15.6 Pro has a lot to say about how it compares with other alternatives on the market and concludes that is one of the best if your budget is tight, but not as good in all areas when comparing quality. The XP Pen Artist 15.6 Pro is a great screen tablet alternative to Wacom Cintiq 16 if you’re on the fence about your budget and want an affordable option. It offers a good-quality display with low parallax, useful shortcut keys, and limited tilt functionality for those who like its design better than that of other tablets. While it may not be as high quality in all areas compared to one from Wacom (iPads), this tablet holds up well against competitors such as Huion H610 Plus or Ugee 1910BK drawing monitor when comparing color accuracy, overall build quality felt pen surface after use over time; while still being competitively priced at $599 without requiring any additional tools needed.

Specification

A pen display is basically a screen on which you can use a special pen to draw (or as an alternate mouse). This means that you need to connect this device and run digital art programs, like Photoshop for instance. The name already says it; the 15.6 Pro has a 15.6″ inch screen—the same size as your average laptop. It gives artists enough space without being too bulky or heavy so they are able to work anytime anywhere. The graphic tablet also offers 8192 levels of pressure sensitivity with its pens- perfect if a detail in what’s drawn matters most. All these features including WiFi capability, compatibility with any type of software such as Adobe Illustrator CS5+, Windows 7/8 operability, multi-touch support.

The tablet’s 8192 levels of pressure sensitivity make it very sensitive when handling control over creativity; without having any lag in creativeness.

Surface Texture And Matte Screen

Working with a large screen can be frustrating. The glare from the glossy surface is distracting and makes it difficult to see what you are doing, especially when drawing or editing an image in close proximity to the screen. A good alternative for this problem would be using matte screens which substantially reduce reflection but don’t sacrifice quality either. Well thankfully all Wacom tablets come equipped with these scratch-resistant films that provide texture as well as reducing reflections on your shiny new tablet display so working near one becomes much more enjoyable than before. The Artist 15.6 Pro is one of the best drawing tablets with a matte film that reduces screen glare and provides texture to make it easier when using your stylus for finer details in the artwork. The textured surface also helps you keep control over your pen, which means less frustration and more productivity – especially if you’re an artist.

Alternatives

If the XP-Pen Artist Pro doesn’t quite have all the necessary attributes you look for in a drawing pad, here are some alternatives: A surprisingly good quality, low budget display tablet that is let down by an unreliable pen when it comes to line jitter and has a bizarrely placed power button next to shortcut keys so be careful not to accidentally turn off while painting.

How To Connect Xp Pen Artist 15.6 Pro To The Computer

Your computer screen will now show what the tablet sees. Connect your 3 in 1 cable to an HDMI Port of your PC. Take one USB Type-A Cable and connect it to the black edge on the drawing tablet. Plug another end into an available port on your desktop or laptop, then check that there is power coming out from this connection by plugging in any device like a mouse (you should see lights turn off when you disconnect). Next, take two cables: One with yellow edges which plug into your drawing tablet and one with black edges which plug directly into the computer or laptop power outlet if there is only a port socket on it then this will work as we plug the 3 in 1 cable to your computer’s HDMI port and prepare for a journey of art.

Connect one end of the black USB Type-A cord into any available powered USB port on your PC, then connect it with either side (black or white) connector at the other end plus both screws that will let you have access to all controls found around its perimeter – not just those found above. Next up is using this same cord as an extender by plugging it into another two cables: yellow for power, red for data transmission.
