I haven’t been inactive. About a month ago, I shared a new comic with my some friends and one suggested I make them digitally on my computer. I wasn’t aware of any inexpensive way to do this, for example, anything short of buying a dedicated art tablet that you could directly “draw” upon. However, it got my wheels turning and I eventually became obsessed with the idea.
I found-out that Adobe offers quite a few digital iOS apps and since I have to pay for the full Adobe CC suite for work I get those to. I bought an Adonit Pixel bluetooth stylus, but it didn’t work with my original iPad Air very well, the lag was horrible. I crunched some numbers and made them work so I could get a new iPad Pro to see if that helped, but the apps on the new tablet wouldn’t even recognize the stylus. So, I took the final jump and bought an Apple Pencil, which is about as good as I could imagine when it comes to responsiveness and palm rejections.
I’m currently trying to figure-out a work flow. I’ve no plans to have it replace my physical artwork as it doesn’t do it justice. However, I do want to see how I can use the tablet for other drawing projects. Maybe devote it to a comic book idea I’ve been rolling around in my head.
