Manga gifts ideas for drawers and artists: 2015 guide
This is one of the years with the most variety and options to choose from when it comes to giving that manga- themed gift for your relatives, friends or loved ones who love drawing manga, either as a hobby or professionally.
As I indicated in last year’s guide, something interesting happened as there emerged (finally) some serious competitors for Wacom’s tablets, which have been dominating the markets for decades.
But how has Chinese manufacturers Huion and Turcom fared since last year?
While Huion didn’t exactly defeat Wacom this year, and its little brother Turcom seems to be focusing more on the least expensive alternatives, they have achieved something that no other manufacturer has in years: they have officially and cleverly positioned themselves as Wacom’s competitor.
The model that has been selling the best with the best ratings on Amazon is their Huion H610 Pro.

For the moment being, this drawing pen tablet is their most competitive at a price of $76 and 2048 levels of pressure sensitivity and measuring 10 x 6.25” of active area, what would be a Medium size in Wacom.
The hot keys feature in which you can set up a function that you do repeatedly (free transform, mask, a special filter, etc) is a deal-maker.
This should be enough to defeat Wacom, right?
Not so much yet. But the tablet is perceived as the absolute best for beginners that don’t want to spend that much money.
