Best E Ink Tablets For Drawing : Unleash the Artist Within

E Ink Tablets for Drawing

One of the reason for which E Ink Tablets became popular in the first place was because of their ability to draw realistic sketches. The first time I saw an Ad about Remarkable I was in owe of what it professed to do. Now E Ink Drawing  is a norm. 

But not all E Ink drawing feel great, Why? There can be be a lot of reasons primary being

  •  it may not feel like a real paper & pen
  • The Pen latency latency while sketching is low
  • The pens inability to identify pressure or tilt.
  • Low screen refresh rate

In short sketching is a complete experience which digital devices fail to provide. But things are changing there are a few great E Ink tablets which really do provide a unique experience when it comes to E Ink drawing or sketching. 

Though in my personal experience nothing beats reMarkable paper like feel (But this is subjective), so here is a list of what I think are the best E Ink tablets for drawing & sketching

Roundup E Ink Tablets For Sketching & Drawing

If you like sketching with a pencil them the sketching experience of ReMarkable 2 will definitely surprise you . Made by the Norwegian company ReMarkable, this digital paper tablet boasts a 10.3-inch e-ink textured display which has a gritty feel. Combined this with the cardboard tips it feels as if you are using a real pencil to draw.

The pen latency and tilt functions are exceptional, for a minute its hard to believe that you are writing on a screen

What I love the most about it is its paper-like feel which cannot be found in other devices. A truly well thought E ink drawing tablet. reMarkable 2 sure is one of the best E Ink Tablet for Artists to show their work

Key Takeaways

  • Realistic paper-like feel, with its precise marker tip you can feel the natural friction as if you’re writing on actual paper.
  • The tilt function and the pressure level of the pen is exceptional
  • The Drawing UI is great with layers, multiple type of pens and different shades of grey.
  • Drawing can be exported in vector form so the quality remains high.
  • Downside is that for the paperlike feel the tips need to be replaced after sometime.

Nothing beats the Amazon Ecosystem. Made by the e-commerce giant Amazon, this e-reader features a 10.3 -inch e-ink display, adjustable lighting, and a high resolution screen that offers a crisp and clear reading experience.

If you are someone who likes reading and sketching and want best of both the worlds then Kindle Scribe is a good option. We feel the device lacks when it comes to Sketching UI but the Pen has the same hardware as that of reMarkable. Though the screen has some grit to it but its nothin like a Pencil over paper, its more like a ballpoint over a gritty paper.  

Its phenomenal pen combined with the excellent screen gray scale & contrast makes drawing with E Ink Tablets a great experience.  I hope they will improve upon the Drawing UI for a better E Ink Drawing experience

Key Takeaways

  • Hardware for writing is same as the remarkable but it lacks in Drawing UI when it comes to layers, multiple pens and shade
  • Exported drawing gets pixelated when exported
  • The pen latency is really good but the writing does not feel like paper
  • Limited pens and brushes in the E Ink drawing UI.

The Boox Tab Ultra C maintains a professional yet modern design, with a new metallic green-gray color scheme that exudes elegance. 

This android color E Ink Tablet features a 10.3-inch Caleta 3 display. The device boasts a specially designed GPU that enhances screen refreshing and minimizes ghosting, addressing a common issue with color e-ink panels.

Its more then a sketchbook and paper.

Supernote A5 X: The Supernote A5 X is like the in-between of the minimalist reMarkable 2 and the functional Onyx Boox Tab because it provides users with an ample amount of functions from android apps while keeping it simple.

This E Ink Tablet  offers a 10.3-inch e-ink display, a high-quality stylus, and a range of features that make note-taking and sketching a breeze.

 With the ability to save and export your notes in a variety of formats, the Supernote A5 X is the perfect tool for Writing. It may not be the best E Ink Tablet for Pro Sketchers but for doodlers like me it sure has a great gel like drawing feel.
