To add more precision and detailing to your piece of art, the tablets for drawing should have stylus with large tips to be detected by high resolution capacitive screens. To know how accurately the stylus interprets your strokes and provides better control in your drawing, look for the pressure sensitivity level of stylus. Whether it be shading with gentle strokes or finishing with dark marked outlines, it depends on this specification of stylus.

Some styli like Pogo Connect provides hundreds of levels of pressure while iPen 2 has 1,024 pressure sensitivity levels. For your iPad, it is good to have Adonit Jot Touch 4 which can recognize up to 2,000 levels of pressure for the most accurate and fine lines. If you prefer Android, Samsung tablets which come with S Pens having 1,024 pressure sensitivity levels would be the right choice.
