Artists: What digital hardware+software do you use for digital sketchin/painting

(1/1)

mouser:
For those of you who spend time sketching/painting in digital medium, I'm curious what tools, both hardware and software, you find the most enjoyable to use?
Anyone use a drawing tablet? A fancy screen with pressure sensitive pen etc?

I ask because I inherited an older cintiq21 21 inch monitor tablet from my father -- you draw on the screen with a pressure sensitive pen.  It's old but very cool.. However it's a beast to move around and requires a computer to make it work.  I'm thinking a smaller standalone touch screen tablet with pressure pen support would be so much more convenient, if not quite as good an experience when actually sketching.

FWIW, I use a wireles Wacom Intuos PTK-540WL with a drawing area of approx 8.75" x 5", 2048 levels of pressure.

and the screen of my Surface Book.

Software is usually (Adobe) Photoshop and Illustrator but now I also use some very good-value graphics software from Serif (Affinity Designer, and Affinity Photo). Sometimes GIMP.
