You shouldn't be too cruel to it! XD But yes, the surface seems to be much too soft. Mine is glossy (with scratches) in the middle now and the edges are still like new... strange feeling while drawing.
I have one id recommend though is say to be kind to it. Lol a Huion. Id suggest though getting a spar pen with it. Mine was given as a present from my beloved around all hallows. He picked up and dropped the pen. Still works though the outside is cracked with some tape to keep it together and it took a re aligning to get it to work after it was dropped. I hadn’t even known till I went to use it. My tablet, he got it on Amazon for a good price. About 30 bucks. The only scratch it has is a shallow one from this one time the cat ran over it and slipped on it, while I was drawing with it. The cat has not since tried that and spray bottle was used. Lol however I do like how the scratch didn’t go very deeply at all and doesn’t seem to affect its use either. So I suggest it highly. I will say though, as a traditional artist who has been getting used to digital art since learning it, it is a lil odd to not be able to simply turn it and keep drawing as is, but the feeling leaves more than enough like paper to forget sometimes that im not drawing on a tablet but on paper, so as times goes on my digital art is beginning to touch on my traditional art in how I am with it. Beginning lol. Ive been a traditional artist a long time and its still not even close. But its closer hella more than it was, and it feels hella more natural than drawing with a mouse, which is beyond awkward. The things I do for art. Lol
