I am still going strong with the iPad and using it as a sketch tablet. I am still enjoying it and learning to get really comfortable with it. I still have some beefs with the program which I hope they will fix. The transform tool is not that great so it is a real pain to rotate items that are imported in and it automatically sets the piece so if you rotate the layer it will crop.

Just doing some comic style figure studies. Doing quick studies is not that bad with the iPad.

Been having a creative block the last few days, which sucks because I have been wanting to doodle with the iPad to play with it some more. Work has been draining me this week, I hope this weekend will be a good weekend to rejuvenate and next weekend I will be heading out on a mini-vacation for my birthday, which I am looking forward to, hopefully that will recharge me some more. Here are some quick doodles from the iPad I did, enjoy!

Just doing some figure studies. Getting back into working with the human form. Always exciting stuff.

Still on the Cthulhu theme of course. More to come.

I finally had some time to play with my new iPad. Set it all up and picked up Sketchbook Pro so I can start using my iPad as a portable tablet. Below is my first couple of iPad sketches and doodles to get used to the program with the stylus. Overall I am happy with the iPad as a tablet – of course there are some cons in doodling, especially with Sketchbook Pro – it is a little bit of a pain that the menu bar doesn’t stay open if you want it to so you have to click to open the menu bar. Also the limited amounts of undos so be careful. Also the transform feature distorts – forgetting that this is a pixel program not vector based. DOH, my bad.

This was my first real doodle getting used to the stylus on the iPad. nothing to exciting just a test.

Thought I would do another quick piece see how the stylus flows. Be one with the stylus.

Now I started getting a little more serious, working with form and still botherd by the no pressure sensitivity with the pen, that is one benefit I see with a normal tablet.

The image below is my last piece where I took a little more time and started to play with color – started to get really comfortable with the stylus and the iPad and was not hitting the canvas with my hand as much so I didn’t have a lot of random lines around the canvas area – due to the touch technology.
