XP-Pen Artist 12 Tablet Review and SKETCH!



Hey guys, how's it going! Today, we're doing a Tablet review. There's so many great tablets out there and you guys have been wanting to see another tablet review from me, so I've connected with the people at XP-Pen. And they gave me this.. Artist 12 tablet to give my honest review with. I thought today we could open this, see all the features. I also have an art piece prepared to paint with. And maybe I'll give one away at the end! Without further ado, let's do it. Hey guys, so this is what XP-Pen gave me. An Artist 12 tablet. It looks really nice, clean, modern and also the stand. The stand that comes with it. Let's see what it looks like, right out of the box. Oooo, check it out! Ooo you see my reflection? Hi. [Laughter] So this is what it looks like right out of the box, it feels pretty handy, you know, it feels like the correct size. Let's see. What else is in here. Oooh Check it out. Look at all this stuff. These are different power adapters depending on where you live. Oh look, it comes with a glove! And there's also a warranty, hopefully 100 years. Wow, look at that. Whoa, it has a hexagon shape to it. I think it's better for holding maybe. I'm not sure. We'll test it out later. Ooooo, check how shiny it is! Looks like it has some buttons here. You know, kind of your standard touch strip that comes with most tablets these days. So you see that shine right here, and look what it does. Kind of diffuses it, so that's the anti-glare film. I'm just gonna take it off. So we have this stand as well and let's see how this works. So this stand has a very hexagonal feel, you know, all these kind of a triangular accents and angles. You guys ready? Whoa! So there's this little knob right here where you can click and hold. Oh! [Laughter] I'm using it backwards. And let me put this on here. Yeah, so the stand is about forty to fifty dollars. You buy these together, you save a bit of money. I think around 20 bucks, so, nice. I'm gonna use my laptop to paint. Lots of cables. [Laughter] I feel like this is the Matrix. I gotcha, okay! I figured this out, guys. Bear with me Power, to block, to USB, to another USB, to the red… to this! As you get more familiar with setting it up, it becomes a lot more familiar and easy XP-Pen We managed to power it up. It looks pretty sweet. On your laptop, it can be the full resolution. And then on this tablet, it can be its full native resolution which is 1920 x 1080. That's so pretty. Let's see what my art looks like. Wow, I actually really like the color. So this is the piece I have for us today. I thought we'd try to finish it and refine it and polish it. Of course, let's put on our glove that came with the tablet. Wohh! Check it out! A way that I love testing out tablets is with the details. So I have this painting here I really like to go in and kind of add the sharp features, add the details, and see how the tablet responds So I'm gonna try that. Because my tablet's a few years old and since this is a newer tablet, it has a much higher range of sensitivity. Look at this. 8192 levels of sensitivity. That is insane! Yeah, you can definitely feel that sensitivity. For sure. Ooo look at that eye guys! It looks pretty good on screen. I like it. I'm adding a summer hat, you know, maybe she's at the beach and with her pet dragon. [Laughter] I think that's kind of funny. Maybe her pet dragon could have a little tongue. [Laughter] This is before what I did, and this is after. And you can tell that there's a lot more detail. Before and and after. That's the ultimate test that I love to do. I like to go in there, you know, add some details and see how it responds. I'll probably finish this on my own time. But what is a Ross Draws video without some color dodge!? So let's do some color dodge! Ooooo! Look at that! Oh my god! Sun-kissed at the beach with her pet dragon. Milo, what do you think? Do you like it? Hey guys, welcome back. I hope you enjoyed watching me paint and playing with the features. The XP-Pen Artist 12, I believe it retails for $250. Probably one of the most affordable tablets on the market that can project a second monitor on. Just to give a comparison.This is the home tablet that I use and this is the Artist 12. Make sure, you know, you don't try to show off because people are gonna steal it. I think my biggest critique about this tablet is maybe it requires a little too many wires to get it to operate You know, I had to stop filming and try to figure everything out. On the plus side, those wires does give you a lot of options depending on what your setup might be. One of my highlights is the glove! I absolutely loved this glove. Oh my god. It was like so smooth. I barely even noticed it was there. Just an FYI. This is not a mobile computer. This is strictly a tablet and a second monitor Another really cool highlight that caught me by surprise was how accurate the colors were. And of course, there's a giveaway! So I have two Artist 12 tablets. I'm giving away one here on YouTube and Milo will give the other one on Instagram! So you have two chances to win. Rule number one, follow XP-Pen on Twitter. Rule number two is to answer the question of the video, which is, if you could live in any world, what would that world look like? Maybe it's an ice world with flying polar bears everywhere. But let me know in the comments below, and we'll choose a lucky subscriber to win one of these Artist 12 tablets. Of course if you want another chance to win head over to my Instagram. Soon I'll make a giveaway post where you can learn all about how to win. Any last words you wanna say? Huh? Do you breathe fire? Do you breathe fire? I hope this review was helpful for you guys. Aww Milo. Looking forward to the giveaway. I'm super excited. Good luck and remember, every day, is a color dodge day. Ooo look at this! Look at this glove. Isn't that cool?
