More about Ipad drawing

Since starting to draw this way awhile back I’m getting better and learning so many new things.  I’m finding it addictive to draw like this.  I started with the Adobe Draw app.  I really enjoyed drawing in this app but it kept crashing so I looked for something else.  Part of my problem with the app was a stylus.  Once you start drawing more you find your finger just isn’t as precise.   Then it’s off to learn about stylus.  The types and choices can be daunting.  I bought a box of 10 for under 5 bucks and quickly switched to a box of 2 for 14 bucks.  The box of 2 has a clear disk on the tip( like an Adonit Jot) so you can see where your lines start.  It has a fiber like tip on the other end that works like the cheaper stylus and it came with extra tips.  Then I found a discounted Adonit Touch so I bought that to try.  It is pretty great and lets you draw with pressure sensitivity so the line width changes like a real world fountain pen.  It crashed Adobe Draw alot though. So I switched to the Concepts app.IMG_0407Concepts is more complex and a cross between a drawing app and a CAD app.  I’ve been using the Ipad app Archisketch for simple CAD drawings that need scale and measurements.  Now I start there and then color them in Concepts.  Mostly I’m playing.  I’ve been drawing my tin toys.  In Concepts I only had to draw one gator and then duplicate,rotate ,and scale.  You can drag and drop from anything on your Ipad which is really amazing….even from the webIMG_0430 This one of tin fish I will probably change.  Layers are so liberating.  I can delete the water bit and try something else without starting all over again because the parts are drawn on different layers.  Both programs are great fun to learn.  Concepts does more so a steeper learning curve.  It is worth learning though.  I am having so much fun learning this stuff.
