This is my third ever purely-for-fun sketch on an iPad with an Apple Pencil. I'd heard good things about the pencil, in particular, from other digital artists on Twitter (and friends offline), and so far I haven't been disappointed. It's not exactly like pencil and paper, per se, but at the time of this writing, … Continue reading iPad Sketch

This has been suggested as a temporary workaround (which would allow me to at … Continue reading RIP Macbook Pro

Well, the laptop wasn't there when I went back (but who's really surprised a relatively new $30 laptop went that quickly?), but I did find a $30 Wacom tablet! The downside is it has no pressure sensitivity at the moment (I'm still fiddling with drivers and such, if only to be able to adjust basic … Continue reading New (Old) Tablet
