This is not the most earth shattering of H&A topics, I admit, but help a father out. I looked for a place to put this question in one of the artists sections, but nothing jumped out so here we are.
My daughter, who is almost 12, has been doing art and animation since she was probably five or six. It's mostly been done in iOS/iPad but she recently got a PC and of course almost immediately wanted a drawing tablet and some software. I'm not going make it out like she's some savant, but she's shown enough dedication and skill that I'm willing to put some money in to decent stuff.
Couple of things:
What should I look for in a drawing tablet? I can go search Wacom like the next person, but is a decent lower end Wacom the best way to start out? She already has an Apple Pencil for her iPad, so being completely naive here, she's going to want something with that level of precision and likely pressure sensitivity.
Am I stuck just dropping the money on Adobe Creative Suite, or are there some different/cheaper tools to look in to? She's specifically been asking for Adobe Animate. Are there some cheaper/better alternatives?
She's also asked about a "drawing glove", which I think is a fingerless glove meant for working with digital tablets? I'm guessing honestly.
I'm just completely out of my depth here. This is a part of the technology world I am completely disconnected with and would love some guidance. I'm willing to spend to get her good, useful, things but I I want to make smart long term decisions that help her get better at her hobby and grow it as a passion as she enters junior high soon.
Oh c'mon FyreWulff, no one's gonna pay to visit Uranus.
