Any recommendations for hardware/software to use? Drawing with a mouse is not so great. Posts suggestions or reviews ITT

if you don't have the money for a tablet stick to paper and pencil, you'll learn more and your art will look more unique.
It pains me young artists think they need a table to make art

OP here. I already can draw with traditional media, which I also recommend learning with. I don't like the experience I've had transferring IRL media to digital and would prefer to work in digital to begin with. Your concerns are valid though.

a cheap no-screen drawing tablet and a computer are cheaper than equivalently versatile art supplies, especially for gaining skill, that requires a lot of practice and material throughput.

Do not buy the 500 to 3000 bucks models with a screen for starting out
buy one of the cheap ones from this list below like the
"One by Wacom" or "HUION Inspiroy H950P"
After you have reached the limits of what can be done with these devices you can consider buying more expensive gear.

Here is that list (of Linux compatible devices) https://techsphinx.com/linux/drawing-tablets-linux/
Good free and open source program for drawing on Linux is krita and gimp (also available on windos and mack)
Definitely go with Linux compatible hard and software even if you don't yet use Linux, because the big proprietary platforms have a bad habit of doing an expensive vendor lock in with this type of stuff.
In case you manage to make money selling art make sure to donate to the opensource projects like krita and gimp
here is the project that works on tablet hardware support https://digimend.github.io/ you can give them money donations with the buy coffee link.

Paper + a scanner/good camera is good enough
But if you can afford a tablet, a Wacom Intuos and Clip Studio Paint Pro (comes free with some models) are good, if not those then you can "find" CSP EX
I Have CSP Pro, which I got with the tablet, on one computer, and CSP EX on another computer
They're for Windows and Mac, but there's a project for Linux too and it seems to work just fine

a used ipad pro is your best bet for a display tablet.

>500 to 3000 bucks models with a screen
proffesionnal level tablets that are huge are at 350 nowadays,as long as you dodge wacom.
but yeah,just dumping 50-60 on a good size with no screen is better when starting.

>Wacom Intuos
Wtf,why would you use 15 bucks more on a tablet smaller than an xp pen in the same range ?

 No.1188

Bought a Huion HS610 a couple weeks ago, it's been amazing. My recommendation for a mid-level tablet, not too expensive (around a hundo at most, often cheaper with discounts if you buy it from their official AliExpress store), very very good. I think I don't have anywhere to upgrade to from this beyond getting a screen one.

Cuz I didn't know about other brands and it wasn't that expensive where I life, plus I had already used a Wacom Bamboo before, and this Intuos had free CSP Pro

>>1188
I guess next time I'll buy a Huion, hmm
