About this deal
That said, the screen resolution is only 1080p. On the one hand, that’s technically all you need on a monitor of this size. Unless your eyes are uncomfortably close, the pixels will be too tiny to see individually. That said, particularly when you’re doing artwork, you might want the confidence of a higher-resolution display. If that’s what you need, take a look at the XP-PEN Artist Pro 16TP. It has a 16-inch screen, as well as 4K UHD resolution. Then again, it’s significantly bigger and bulkier than the Artist 12.

Illustrator in a complicated relationship with his sketchbook. Keyboard monkey for DrawYourWeapon. Afflicted with a violent coffee addiction. Known to yawn like a wookiee. Set full screen: After you select it, the device will be mapped to the whole area of the selected monitor.One of the major marketing points for many of XPPen’s recent tablet releases is their X3 pen chip technology. There are some bold claims and fancy imagery to illustrate the improvements. One of those improvements is the amount force needed to register pressure (ie. initial activation force). Now ,as little as 3 grams of force is all that’s needed for your lines to appear. To the left of the screen, on the front surface, there are eight buttons in a vertical row. These are broad and rubbery, and easy to operate with one hand while you’re drawing with the other. On the right side of the outer frame, you’ll find the power button, along with a pair of brightness buttons. There are also a pair of USB Type-C ports for connecting to your computer. The driver software is nicely laid out and is easy to understand. It’s here you can change and/or edit things like pen pressure, change the display settings, re-map the shortcut keys etc. I tend to find most shortcut key commands on these devices already have the best/most used options already set, but it’s great you can amend if you so wish (I tend not to use them as I’m so used to using a keyboard!).
