I bought iPad pro 12.9 inch today for drawing, I was having a hard time deciding what I wanted, A Wacom drawing tablet, Wacom Cintiq 27 QHD, Microsoft surface etc. another question is what did I need, the price is so high and I need to find something that will help my drawing skills. Wacom is the best product on the market, but it is expensive.
I wanted something that I can move around with, so if I go for vacation I can still work and train my skills. After much reviews and reading I was left with IPad pro, Wacom companion and Microsoft surface. The iPad pro pencil lets you lay it down on the side and you will be able to shadow like a pencil, I loved this feature but the pen cost over 1000 kr. The Microsoft surface don’t let you shadow like this and the drawing do lag a bit behind. The Wacom is really heavy, but draws the best. S how to decide?
I love apple products, they don’t get virus, and the iPad have a lot of other programs and games I can practice on for a low cost, and the drawing is really good. So, at the end I decided to Go for the iPad, and after drawing my first sketch I love it. It feels like paper, but the editing is so easy. You can cut and move out pieces easy and the layers are just like photoshop. I did buy Pro Create for drawing, because that is much recommended for the good drawing feature and how easy it is to use.
My daughter loves Stitch, so drew one with some inspiration from a picture from Pintrest. But to be the first drawing on a tablet I am really happy with the outcome.
