Creators of /co/, how do you set up your drawing tablets? Any tips or tricks? Recommended software and workflow?

I still use a screenless tablet, I own an ipad but I press the pen on the screen way too fucking hard, I just don't like it
Also I have a laptop and a bigger screen connected to it, OP's screen looks rather small to work on

Tablets with screens are a scam to get more money out of artists. Blank surface tablets are better for your neck/shoulders. Huion is just as good as Wacom. Take breaks to stretch out your legs, too much sitting will fuck up your veins. Never give Adobe a single dollar, Sai 2 is a lighter program that do everything you might need. Adjust your pen so you don't have to manually put down too much pressure, that's bad for your wrist in the long run. Take as many shortcuts as you can, befriend the perspective tool quickly.

That's what I got off the top of my head.

A bigger screen is a good investment, doesn't have to be fancy DEFINITELY don't get a curved one.
Also, you can't predict how different screens will make your colours look, but as a general rule stay away from the more saturated end of the colour picker and you should be fine.

Also, what DPI does everyone use? I always see such smooth line art and at 400 I still feel like my work looks too pixely. how thick a brush do you use?

Just 350 but I draw on 3000×5000-ish canvases and then scale down, never had issues with pixilated lines.
