Review: Wacom Intuos – Creative Pen Tablet

A term in the past described most muralists and creative painters as “starving artists”. It has also been said that an artist’s work had no real value until they were dead. That is no longer true. People involved with any type of art can now have a bright, incredible future career using the Wacom Intuos: Creative Pen Tablet!

This creative tablet and pen will allow users to practice and develop the skills needed to become an artist. Many creative people in the past needed a patron or a fan to help support them at the beginning of their career. Although this may still be the case, most new artists can be discovered by submitting their visual designs and artwork to places like with a single click. Using the Wacom Intuos: Creative Pen Tablet becomes a digital drawing canvas right on your PC or Android device.

Simple and Customisable

Companies make money by solving a problem that their customers have. They do this many different ways by providing either a service or a product. Wacom Intuos has done exactly that. They have designed an amazing tablet and pen combination to solve a problem many artists have. Wacom designed a device that is both simple and yet customizable. Not an easy task to do however, they did this by making the pen very precise and sensitive as well as comfortable and feels natural. The framing of the tablet itself is compact and stylish no matter what size you choose. The ingenuity that Wacom established in this creative canvas is in one word, intuitive. 

Wacom designed a tablet that is easy for a new artist to use however, the settings are easy to change based on the artist’s growth. The past issues of how to store old or failed art are solved by having a device that can store the art on either the computer or the cloud. Why is this needed? As an artist grows in skill, they may not recognize how much they have grown. By reviewing their old work, they can understand how far they’ve come. This can also remind them of the skills they had given up on in the past and would like to try again.

What Can Users Expect?

The Wacom Intuos: Creative Pen Tablet comes in a beautifully designed package. This includes simple step-by-step instructions that are easy to understand. Whether you are running Mac, Windows or even an Android device, you can customize the details for your personal needs easily in the settings. The creative pen does not need batteries or the need to be plugged in. It is a 100% battery-free drawing pen that feels closely related to an actual felt tip marker with a softer touch. Instead of batteries, it uses EMR (Electro-Magnetic Resonance) technology, with 4,096 levels of pressure sensitivity. This provides the most natural drawing experience that will allow you to enhance your skills for as long as you want to without the need of charging the pen. Wacom also included replacement nubs hidden in the back of the pen, since these will wear out over time.

The Wacom Intuos Creative Tablet can be purchased in either all black or black and pistachio (mint green). It also comes in two main sizes, medium and small. Although we are discussing the creative pen tablets, Wacom has a range of different canvas styles that can suit anyone’s graphical needs.
