I must admit that I do not own an iPad Pro or the Apple Pencil, so I can’t download any of these apps and try them out. Most of the drawings look really good though.
The Astropad lets you turn your iPad into a drawing tablet for your Mac computer. You can draw directly into a program such as Photoshop or Illustrator. It only costs $29.99, a fraction of the cost of a Wacom tablet.
A summary of the review is that the iPad Pro is a good tool for sketching, but not a computer for doing serious work. I have never used any digital device that could come close to giving me the control over my sketching I get with a simple, no-tech pencil. I make drawings and ink them, scan them, and finish them (sometimes) in Photoshop or Illustrator. I don’t need an iPad Pro for my art work.
The new Apple iPad Pro has some amazing apps and tools for creating art, such as the Apple Pencil. The apps include uMake, Procreate,and Paper.
This is of interest to me because I am teaching myself how to play the electronic keyboard.
Adobe is set to launch an app, now called Rigel, that will bring easy Photoshop editing to your iPhone and iPad. It plans to make the app available for Android devices later.
I have this app on my smart phone. It is very easy to make sketches in it using the stylus. It lets you draw ovals and rectangles and text. It features many brushes and pencils you can choose from. You can also display art work from other artists int the gallery.
