New here! Looking for tablet recommendations

Hi there! I’d like to start pixel art (and drawing in general) and I was looking into getting a pen display tablet - however, I’d like to get one that is usable with aseprite!

The ones I’m considering are:

Huion Kamvas Pro 12
XP-Pen Display 12.

However, I’m open to recommendations beyond these! Thank you!

Aseprite has no support for any tablet features, so anything that moves the cursor on the screen will work the same, whether that’s a mouse, a regular tablet, a screen tablet, or something else. So, pick something that works well with your other software and is comfortable to use.

After working with a pen display tablet to do pixel art in Aseprite, I find it very uncomfortable to do pixel art with a mouse or a pen tablets. I have to echo eishiya’s comments that Aseprite has no special features that support pen display tablets, it behaves the same for those input devices.
If you plan on buying a brand like Huion, and XP-Pen, the one concern I’d have is does those two models have drives that support ones current Operating System. Check their software download site and research how often they update their software to support current and future OS.
At the time when I purchased my first pen display tablet, I didnt have any other option other than Wacom. Though it costed a lot, it has lasted me over a decade and still going strong. Wacom still offers driver updates to the model I use. I would not recommend it as a first purchase unless art is gonna be part of your career.

All the best!
