Alright, so here's the run down: I'm basically at a stand still with my digital art since my laptop died about 2 years ago, I'd really love to continue my digital art since it's also helpful in my current job, but I think I want to transition to something a bit easier to deal with while still being portable (while as my laptop was portable, having my huge wacom tablet that needed plugged in to it and sat somewhere didn't really make it easy for out-of-house digital doodling)
This is why I am now looking into an iPad Pro or a Surface Pro, but I'm not so sure, mostly on the Surface side, on which I should really go with and I'm hoping people who have them can give me their opinions.
Quite frankly I'm personally leaning more towards the iPad right now for price, quality, and I follow many instagram artist who use it so I've been more exposed to the quality it allows.
My boyfriend though suggested that I look into a surface, and though I've spent time looking into it, reading it's specs on the website and such, but I certainly haven't gotten the exposure to the kind of artwork quality it can provide so it's hard for me to judge from a quality standpoint what it is capable of.
So can any one with either of these products tell me your experience in digital art with which one you have?
Though it would be nice to occasionally do some web browsing that are easiest done on a desktop or laptop it isn't of priority. Basically I'm looking for a new drawing tablet and since I need a new system anyways I feel it is in my best interest right now to get a device like the iPad or Surface - if there are other suggestions let me here 'em!
Quick list rundown:
Portable - I want to draw wherever I am, the car, work, the bar, at home, anywhere I could take a paper and pencil
Affordable -though by all means it seems I'm spending probably 1k to get a tablet and stylus at least. Anything more than 1.5k is absolutely way too much in my book right now!
Memory -this is loose. I just don't want to get something that will fill up too fast with digital work.
This purchase will not be happening until Black Friday/ Cyber Monday or after. I'm hoping I can get one of these products on a sale, I just want to educate myself and know what to look for and what I should be after when these sales roll around (assuming they are offered, if not - then that's where buying sometime between then and Christmas will happen)
Input is greatly appreciated, if you have questions to help better identify what would be best for me please do ask! Also open to direct notes if you think it would be easiest to discuss there!
Thank you all in advance!
