So on their website there is no more “Cintiq Pro 13″ – the only 13” model they have is called the Wacom One and it’s $400.
Presumably the “pro” you’re linking to is a higher end model, just in a smaller size? They make a Cintiq 16 and 22, and a Cintiq PRO 24 and 32.
The “pro 13” is selling for $1500 here on Amazon, so maybe what you sent IS in fact a great deal hmmmm
I’m not really sure why you want to work digitally if youre opposed to computers/internet being part of the process, that’s kind of a big part of ‘digital’. The cheaper tablets are not going to have a screen, they’re going to function basically like a mouse connected to your PC and move the cursor around with the pen. Even the best of the best Cintiq level tablets basically act like an extra monitor you can draw on. There are cheaper tablets similar to cintiqs but they still need a PC running Photoshop or some other art program.
Something like an iPad or other tablet doesn’t have to connect to a PC but it basically is a self-contained computer itself. I use a Samsung galaxy note, it’s an Android tablet that works without being connected to a PC. You would need WiFi to install art programs from the app store but other than that you don’t have to use internet on it. It lets you draw directly on the screen which was my main priority. Investing $200+ might be a big ask if you’re just starting out though. If youre interested in this make sure you do your research. Samsung has tablets with the ‘S Pen’, which have more levels of pressure sensitivity than a normal touch screen and works much better for digital art. You want to find the most sensitivity within your price range.
I used an Intuos 3 for…a decade or so? It’s a solid tablet but requires a PC to use and doesn’t let you draw directly on the screen. I guess the modern day version of that would be something like this, which seems like a pretty affordable pick for getting your foot in the door with digital art.
