I have the HUION KAMVAS GT-191 pen display drawing monitor. The new Huion KAMVAS 20 Drawing Pen Display Graphics Monitor model is similar with 8192 levels of pen pressure. This 19.5” wide screen drawing monitor is very comfortable to draw on. It provides 16.7 million colors to ensure the colors you choose for your artwork are what you prefer. The pen has its own pen stand with extra tip nubs. It also comes with a USB charging cord that plugs into the computer.

It is compatible with Windows 7/8/8.1/10, Mac OS X10.11 or above, and is compatible with all major programs and more.

I purchased this drawing monitor early in 2019. I started using it to draw our

“Irving The Emu” series of children’s illustrated books.

During this time, I have been asked to answer questions through the Amazon consumers question emails. Some of the question I could answer were,

It’s not a standalone device, it plugs into the computer just as a regular monitor does and you save your work on the computer.

The background light is softer than a regular monitor, but this seems to be easier on the eyes when you draw for an extended time. I switch to regular monitor to see the colors as they might print.

You can draw just about anything that your imagination can think of. Illustrations, Comics, Manga, Landscapes etc.

If the pen stops working with the monitor, (save first then) shut down the drawing program and re-start your computer.

I use the Microsoft 3D paint program for the lines and shapes as well as certain brushes that are available then I also use one of the Corel Painter programs. I have a few of the brush packs that give many variations of texture.


This has been a fantastic drawing tool for me. In the past I used pencil and paper and making mistakes usually meant erasing and frustration. The digital drawing alternative has been incredible. I researched the options that are available and when I found the HUION products I was very impressed with their quality and the price. If you have been looking for a drawing tablet or a monitor it is obvious that many come with a high price tag. HUION is economical at a great price!

If you are just starting to draw and you want a small inexpensive drawing pad that you can draw on and see the work on your regular computer monitor, I purchased the HUION H610 V2 for about $50 for a family member who draws greeting cards for friends. It plugs into the computer and has a 10” x 6.25” drawing surface.

It comes with a drawing pen and has 8 customizable shortcut express keys on the tablet.

I suggested that she could use templates that are in the shapes of flowers or other items, so that she could draw specific things then fill with color and add to the drawings. She is happy with it.

When looking for value, functionality and affordability

the HUION products are a great choice to make! .
