New iPad Pro | Digital Painting!

I’ve been dying to get my hands on an iPad Pro for ages to be able to paint and draw (in bed, not going to lie haha) without having to lug around sketchbooks, paints, pencils, etc. so many illustrators swear by the iPad Pro to create content and even full works of art. So after plenty of research, I finally got the 12.9″ iPad and the Apple Pencil! Much of the first things I’ll be creating will be complete expieriments as I play with the programs like Procreate, 53 Paper and Photoshop Sketch which are my favorites so far. The pencils and inking in Procreate are awesome!!! The only struggle I’ve had so far (besides wobbly lines) is blending and retrieving previously used colors, but I’m blaming most of this on operator error. If anyone knows and good places for tutorials on iPad illustration and hacks, please let me know! Here’s my first painting!

Ballet Dancer

It’s probably not the best, but much better than anything I did on my iPad mini! Since dancers and flowers are some of my favorite subject matters, expect to see plenty of those in the future. I’m excited to see where I can take my illustration now and plan on selling designs in my Society 6 store and Etsy so stay tuned!

Stay Creative!
