A few weeks ago or so, I purchased a new toy. A Targus Stylus for my Apple iPad along with a slick App from Autodesk called Sketchpad. While the learning curve is more steep then I would have liked, it does work pretty well. Sketchpad doesn’t allow for detailed work, as much as Painter does. Although I think that’s more the fault of the stylus then the App. Still, what it lacks for in control over brushes and color, makes up for in portability. I mean it’s on my iPad. I can take it anywhere and don’t have to have a separate pencil and drawing pad if I want to bust out a sketch or something. One thing that I do fault with the App is the speed. Sometimes it lags and that can be a distraction.
So far, I haven’t done a whole lot. Here’s a work in progress of Catt. Once it’s finished I’ll post it.
UPDATE 8/10/11: I finished the drawing, and then exported it and finished it in Paintshop. Problem is, Autodesks format for PSD, which is used when saving the image, formatted the image weird. I was unable to read the layers with Paintshop, instead I had to first open it with Photoshop, re-save it, THEN I could edit its layers in Paintshop. Annoying, but not a major hiccup.
