Create like never before with the Parblo A610s Graphic Drawing Tablet which is the device to walk with if you are an intuitive artist in the lane that who creates out of pure intuition. This tablet almost sounds like a direct descendant from Pablo Picasso, but then we can’t say for sure. From observation, I’ve noticed many people walking around with a creative desire on edge. What they lack is a proper medium or tool to release it. Moreover, today’s the day where technology steps in and does it for you. Without any fear of losing the things you create or instantly pen it on to a digital platform with maximum precision, you can have these tablets that let you create to the maximum.

It is for every kind of artists out there who wants to create their digital piece of art with maximum efficiency. It is different from any regular tablet that has multi-functions. This graphic drawing tablet throws in some nice competition for other drawing tablets with affordability at its forefront and also some amazing specs that are designed and infused in the device to give you greater efficiency.
The Parblo A610s Graphic Drawing Tablet has a very premium and curved look and feel. The suave it carries strikes a perfect chord between sleek design and premium-grade build quality with maximum quality of the build material. Happy to say that it is too ergonomic, and as soon as you get your hands on the device, you get to feel the premium finish I just talked about. The dimension of this tablet is 14″ x 9.45″. The pen or workspace you get under this dimension is 10″ x 6″ letting you manifest your thoughts instantly. It has a thin frame of which but it also 1.45lbs which cannot be called super portable, but you don’t have to necessarily carry it around if you have a fixed device like a desktop PC.
You can slide this tablet smoothly into your bag along with other books. This device integrates Human Innovative Design taking left or right-hand preferences into account and then work accordingly. The work surface or the pen area of this graphic drawing tablet has extremely smooth finishes to prevent the pen or the pen tip from getting worked up. It is not so smooth to the extent that you are left with a slippery experience from creating your art. It perfectly balances friction and smoothness. While at the same time, in these kinds of tablets one should always avoid a rough surface. Smooth surfaces have numerous benefits. Balance it out with this tablet.
Along the horizontal end of this device, you will find eight hotkeys. You will also find two keys on the digital pen. These keys help you in getting you instant shortcuts to do execute some function or tasks right at hand without following two-three steps. This amps up your illustration process. As a digital artist, you shouldn’t be investing your energy on unnecessary procedures when you can do it all with one key. These eight hotkeys are nice to touch and gives the comfort of softly pressing the keys. There is a little problem with these eight keys because it takes a fat space of work area or drawing space.
It is perfectly placed in a perfect position, but it takes up little workspace which can be narrowed down. Also, just like other drawing tablets, these hotkeys comes with no names or indications to them. So it is obvious that everytime you want to use these hotkeys for a shortcut, you will have to look down or else memorize them. It essentially leads to a rigid workflow. It’s ironical because we call them shortcuts in the first place. As a user of this device, you will have to memorize these shortcuts and essentially build up a workflow.
