    It looks good on your 3ds,but once it actually leaves it the quality drops significantly.

    So,does anybody know any good tablets?

    Preferably not too expensive and that can also be used for other stuff.

    I used to have a kindle fire.Never again will i commit the same mistake (it was free,so i guess you get what you pay for.)

    Not only was it small,it overheated easily,had terrible battery life,a tiny appstore,and no camara.

    Thank you for helping! ❤

    I use the Wacom Bamboo Fun Tablet. It's nothing fancy, very affordable, and it's quite good. The only thing I miss is pressure sensitivity, but not very much. I actually drew my avatar with it, so maybe look to that for a reference.

    I recommend buying an old wacom on ebay. Any version with a usb cord will work, and you can get some of the huge ones for under $70.

    I have wacom 2 xd silver 9x12 inches, and it cost ~$70.

    Best of luck!

    1,200 pesos is...

    actually pretty cheap! ^_^

    Now that i got sky3ds+freeshop,i dont really have to spend much on videogames anymore! ;-)


    So,does it also work as a regular tablet?

    is the battery life any good?

    The thing i'd use it most is for drawing,although i'd also like to use it for things such as going on tumblr...

    Good drawing tablets are not standalone devices unfortunately. The wacom tablets (with the exception of the cintiq) do not even possess screens.

    These are meant to be used in conjunction with a computer almost as a substitute to a mouse.

    If you want to get a traditional tablet pc with an operating system, you can browse tumbler etc, but you won't have a device that is nearly as accurate/well equipped for creating digital art.
