What portable drawing devices do you use?

  • @Lee-White Thanks for the heads up lee, I have been putting off buying for a year already. figured it was a bout time to take the plunge!

  • Hi, so it has arrived and I am super stoked. It is taking some getting used to, new apps, new shortcuts, navigating the interface in general etc. But I am sure after a week or so I will have it nailed.

    In the meantime here is the first sketch on this device. I will try and complete this image entirely on the iPad Pro using Procreate so wish me Luck. !(https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B0ZbVUVEZaB_N1ZfQkRLTkZVWUk)

  • Ok, so starting to learn the procreate interface very slowly one tool at a time. Here is where I am at currently. Still a long ways to go. But getting there. It would be really nice if you could see the brush size as an outline on the canvas though, don't know if that is possible? (image url)

  • @RobinSlee here is the way to do that Robin - under the "wrench" icon go to "prefs" and enable "brush cursor" - your snowman piece looks great!


  • @Kevin-Longueil Dude, thats awesome. Thanks for sharing. Im still learning how to find all the options! lol. Long ways to go on the image, but its getting there. Any idea how to embed an image into the forum rather than a link? I have been looking for the forum faq but havnt found it yet 😉

  • @RobinSlee Hey Robin - I always send it to my Laptop and shrink it down in Preview to fit the file size requirements - also do real quick crops in preview too - seems like 700 to 900 pixels high is about right for viewing on the forum - i have been sticking to A4 for my Wizard of Oz project which is way too big to upload - one good thing about this way of doing things is having a extra PNG copy of finished pieces just in case I forget to backup a file - so it is an extra step but it does have that one benefit 🙂

  • @Kevin-Longueil There is an upload icon above the text box when you write a forum entry - it is the little rectangle with the arrow pointing up...... You most likely know this I'm sure

  • @Kevin-Longueil Great tips thanks. I bought a resizer app for the ipad pro. I can save from procreate, import to app, resize to 800x600, then upload to google drive copy link and post that. I was using the little image icon in the forums, but I will try the up arrow next and see if that works. Its all new to me as I have been primarily windows in the past. Its just a change in working process, but I am sure I will get used to it. Im temtped to make a little guide for new users answering all the questions I am encountering as I learn! Cheers again. 😉
