While the Monoprice tablets I reviewed previously were the best bang for your drawing buck at the time, these new Huion tablets offer a significant bump in specifications and fit and finish without a huge leap in price. Huion’s line of tablets use the same UC-Logic pen digitizer technology as Monoprice’s tablets. Monoprice’s hotkeys felt flimsy and the stylus was serviceable and utilitarian. No one would call the Monoprice tablets things of beauty, but it was easy to overlook these shortcomings given their price. At around ten percent of the cost of comparable Wacom tablets, with equal or better performance in many regards, the Monoprice line of tablets was my punk-rock drawing tool of choice when not using tablet monitors on my desktops.

8 steps to becoming a Concept Artist The first time I ever heard about the profession called concept artist was in September 2010. I had come to Thailand in April the same year to get a master's degree in Buddhist Studies but the university was a disappointment and I quickly felt that I needed to look for other options. I had always loved drawing and painting but never tried doing it digitally (except for some pixel art that I created on my Atari in the 80s). I had been a professional photographer and knew Adobe Photoshop very well, but it had never even hit me that it could be used for serious digital painting.
