I prefer artflow, but it doesn't make me any better at art... :P
Palm rejection is a must for a tablet. I know that Artflow has it, but it's not comaptible with all devices, so you would have to check first. I'm sure there are other apps tho!
If I may interject, I have an Nvidia Shield Tablet and, except for the palm rejection, it works pretty well enough for me and seems like a great alternative if you want to use it for drawing. The default drawing app kinda sucks (I reccomend Art Flow)and it uses Nvidia's proprietary technology instead of Wacom's. It's a cheaper and more powerful tablet than Samsung's offerings and I really like it's gaming features too.
Would recommend if anybody's looking for a cheap Android tablet to draw on.
I switch between Sketchbook and Artflow.
Just as a heads-up though, the Tab S doesn't have pressure sensitivity settings like the Note series does.
I used ArtFlow on a note8. Not sure if ArtFlow is the best app but it let's me erase with the stylus button which I find very useful. I don't think I've found another app that can do that.
> Now, I know getting a cheap android tablet and a capacitive stylus won't be as good as having a Cintiq. But I don't intend to make full fledged pieces on the go, just have something to sketch in, maybe do some simpler/smaller pieces.
Honestly, drawing with a normal passive capacitive stylus is just nonesense, unless you plan on just coloring sketches. The precision just isn't there and of course you get no real pressure sensitivity or palm detection.
So like the other posters, I can only recommend going with the Galaxy Tab S3, which includes the S-Pen, using Wacom tech just like the Cintiq. In many ways its even an upgrade over the Cintiq Companion on paper, with a way brighter screen and a pen with 4096 levels of pressure (although no angle detection; not sure if the Companion supports that). Of course you can't use full desktop Photoshop on an Android tablet, but ArtFlow (PlayStore page shows older version with older UI in the video) for example is good enough for most things and exports PSD files if further processing is needed.
Alternatively, the Android version of the Lenovo Yoga Book is a bit cheaper and also uses a Wacom pen (although not for drawing directly onto the screen); same with the Windows version. It might be a bit cheaper but I would still prefer the S3 for its OLED screen and better hardware overall.
Other alternatives are the iPad Pro or the MS Surface series which have active pens of similar quality but neither are cheaper than the S3.
Nearly forgot, if you really on a strict budget there are some older Samsung tablets that also use the Wacom tech S-Pen, like the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1.
For those wondering I made it 4,096x2,304 4k
I used artflow to make it. [link]
I'm really liking Artflow.
I like ArtFlow, Infinite Painter , Artboard and MediBang Paint.
But I'm not sure if they are compatible with S Pen.
Apps I use and currently have installed on my Tab S6 (all links are for Google Play)
Check out Artflow - [link]
It has a very high rating and may be exactly what you are looking for.
So I recently finished Hollow Knight for the first time and was blown away by the quality and artwork of the game. This is the first theme I'd made on my own, so whatever constructive criticisms you guys have are welcome. So here's all the resources I used; images, fonts, .klwp file, etc.
If for whatever reason that link doesn't work (never used Dropbox to share before), just let me know and I'll figure something else out. Also credit for some of the images used:
u/MrSpiarmf made the character collage on the second page (link here). And if you're interested by chance, sounds like he's selling prints here.
u/Blossoming-Crisis was the original artist for the picture of Hornet on the first page (link here).
The health bar kinda widget on the first page right now were traced by hand using the Artflow app, along with some of the other images and stuff, and the edits to the images linked above. The masks on the widget reflects the battery health in increments of 20, and when on the last mask (0-20%) it shows with a black background like the game (see the gif link; my battery goes from 21% down to 20% halfway through and you can see the change). The Soul container reflects the amount of steps I've walked (set to 0-2000, 2000-4000, and 6000+). The Geo number is the actual steps count.
And one last note, I'm using the Microsoft Launcher rather than Nova at the moment, and because of that there's a couple little quirks in the .klwp file. If you guys are interested I can write a bit on what needs changed for Nova (nothing too major).
Oh and /r/HollowKnight is a cool sub, go check it out. And if you haven't played the game yet, do it. It's awesome, and the sequel Silk Song comes out soonish.
Ok I think that's it, I'll edit or leave another comment if I think of anything else.

Tried it but much prefer artflow: [link]
I've had a Samsung Note 10.1 for a few years now. It has a pressure sensitive stylus, which works really well for drawing and painting.
Obviously it's not a replacement for a laptop/desktop, but on the flip side, it's comparatively lighter and smaller and thus easier to carry.
The bundled S Note software is quite nice for taking notes or for quick sketches, but for layers and advanced features I'd recommend ArtFlow (screenshot) or SketchBook Pro.
