Working on a large-scale multilayered, color-enhanced epigraphic project using XP-PEN's brand new Artist Pro 24

Oct 7, 2020

I use a beautiful 4K Wacom Cintiq Pro 24 in my studio, and I love it. My Wacom provides a nice and spacious canvas for working on the Survey’s large-format drawings with all details perfectly rendered, thanks to its high-resolution screen. It would take a lot of innovative features to convince me to replace this precious drawing display. Nonetheless, every time I have to execute shortcuts, switch over to my desktop monitor for my writing chores, or just move this beast, I am immediately reminded that there is always room for improvement.⠀ ⠀

Recently, XP-PEN (@xppen) released its largest tablet to date, the brand-new Artist Pro 24, which tackles many of the issues large screens propose. It does so in such a convincing manner that it makes me wonder if it’s time to shake up the scenery on my drawing desk! ⠀ ⠀

As I was taking out the surprisingly large (and rather heavy at nearly 12 kg) pen display XP-Pen kindly sent us to review, I had two thoughts whirling in my head. Will I finally see a screen that can be used for both drawing and as a regular everyday monitor? And (knowing how much my studio work relies on Photoshop shortcuts) will I finally be able to stop hanging on to my Wacom Express Key Remote and Delux T11 Designer Keypad combo, thanks to the overwhelming amount of buttons and dials neatly aligned on both sides of the Artist Pro? ⠀ ⠀

Well, XP-PEN’s largest pen display is certainly not your average budget screen. It requires a significant amount of desk space and – in this regard - is probably best for those colleagues who work with large format drawings and don’t have the budget for Wacom’s (much) pricier equivalents.⠀ ⠀
