iPad Drawing







I haven't talked about it on here yet, but I bought an iPad last week.... and
I LOVE it! This thing has made my laptop obsolete overnight, and man, am I glad I didn't waste my money on a Kindle Reader a few months ago! I downloaded the Kindle app and have been really enjoying reading them on my iPad ( the selection of books on the Amazon Kindle app is far better than iBook that comes with the iPad ).

PLUS, I can draw on the iPad! I purchased a POGO Sketch stylus to draw with, and I've been practicing with it when I can. I'm going to be doing live caricature bookings on the iPad( already have a huge booking on it in Vegas this Fall) so I want to get really good with it. I want my lines to look like my " normal " lines, ya know? But drawing with the POGO is a little weird. There's a definite learning curve. With the sponge-y end, I liken it to drawing with a little pillow on the end of a stick. LOL.

Anyway, I am starting to get the hang of it now, I think. Here's a Ben 10 I drew last night all on the iPad with Sketchbook Pro. Hope ya like!

That's pretty sweet Keelan. I was wondering how the Ipad was to draw on. What program are you using to draw?

Keelan Parham said...

Sketchbook Pro, Beast. I like Layers too, though.

WoW! This is great! I wouldn't have thought this was done with the pogo on the ipad.

Pretty neat. Might have to take a closer look at the iPad sometime.
