How Procreate, the iPad Pro and Apple pencil have changed
What are your favourite features in Procreate?
Being able to watch back videos of how my artwork was drawn! The split-screen app view also keeps photo reference in view.
What features would you like to see in the next version?
It’d be great to add adjustment layers to tweak colours on the fly.
Have painting apps on iPad Pro changed your workflow?
They’re great for doodling ideas on the move, or doing personal pieces. Occasionally I’ve exported something to my iMac to evolve it.
How do you find using an Apple pencil to create art compared to using your fingers?
Infinitely superior. Drawing on an iPad with a finger or stylus was a novelty, but took forever to get halfdecent results. With the pencil you can draw as you’d expect to.
Are there any other creative mobile/tablet apps you use?
Not really. Adobe Comp has been handy. I’m always interested in new drawing apps. For now, Procreate is my favourite.
Is there anything you don’t like about working on an iPad?
The feeling that you’re drawing on something glossy and shiny. Even though the pencil feels great, your palm doesn’t feel as comfortable as it does on paper.
Have painting apps replaced traditional sketching for you?
Absolutely! I go digital where I can. It’s more efficient and flexible.
What is your favourite thing to draw?
The next face I’ve yet to capture. Portraits are what I can’t help but come back to.
If your drawings could come to life, what would be the first thing you’d create?
A few beers!
